most likely the same answer applies here as the one DIL gave aka nobody holds the publishing rights on those items outside Japan as they're tied to the Anime

btw don't you guys think those item's aren't a tad unbalanced or did you all just look at the pictures and have no clue of their actual bonus effects ? also don't think those will be cheap to get lol :D

A basic agathion of your choice costs 700 Yen aka 7 US dollars, one Destruction Scroll for upgrading (the overenchantment value is maintained even upon failure) costs 400 Yen, a pack with 10 Scrolls costs 3500 Yen aka 35 dollars:

Then, when you have your base agathion at +7, it gets interesting. For upgrading Elizabeth and Meliodas to Stage 2 you need 3 Upgrading Stones, for Stage 3 you need 7 more Stones. The other Deadly Sins require 2 Stones for Stage 2 and 5 Stones for Stage 3. You get one Upgrading Stone for every 5000 Yen you spend on items from that promotion:

So if you want an Elizabeth Stage 3, you must spend at least 50,000 Yen aka 500 dollars to get the necessary Upgrading Stones. And that's assuming that the overenchantment goes well. Socketka once linked a video where somebody was filming the process, and if I remember correctly, about every 3rd attempt succeeded. You are probably looking at around 1000 dollars for one agathion :D


For comparison, the monthly subscription fee in Japan is 2000 Yen aka 20 dollars:

Subscriptions keep the prices of the items in the Lineage 2 store at a decent price.

Sure one could see it as "omg they are milking the players from both sides"

While others like myself see it as "Paying a sub fee could potentially lower prices in the Lineage 2 store from 100 dollars to 30 dollars".

The reason the prices are so outrageously high on Lineage 2 NA is because we do not have a subscription system to log in. Sure one could say prestige pack but I don't believe this really counts as if you look at Innovas system they have a subscription system to launch another client. The first one is free but the rest cost money and if you look at the L2 store on innova prices in USD conversions is way less expensive then Lineage 2 NA.

that's so sweet that you think prices would be lower if so hehe :D

btw from day 1 that Free2Play was announced many people asked for a premium account subscription system and you're right instead of that we got the prestige pack lulz

truth is plenty of people would take both prestige pack AND a premium account subscription ala Innova

It is true though they won't need to charge as much to make up for the lost profit each month for maintaining the servers.

Key word is need though I do agree they could just keep charging the same amount plus charge subscriptions but that would be really crappy on customer relations side.

GoD was a mistake anyway.

And

Draecke wins

It's so obvious no one ever played on another server but chronos

When the first sahya's talisman landed on innova eu the prices went to the roof ncwest style [well 1/4 of ncwest prices]

players' response quit en masse on ramona -> ramona closed

innova response sayha's talisman 2nd event 1/4 of the original price [normal ratio between eu and ru 4/1 2nd sayhas' talisman event ratio 2/1]

It seems like some one learned from his mistakes.

In here i bet the monthly fee will be no less than 100/150 $ x month vs 2/10 $ :P

 

Imho everything, even the diamonds, has its point break.

We shall see which event is the l2 na point break
