The icon looks a lot like the Guardian of magic just a lot meaner

Love the reduced costs but like others wished we could have had some warning. The lack of warning cost me at least 1 lvl 9 enchant just in the last week alone.

Stagger will be totally OP with this change. Being a mage, if I met a 1H Justie anywhere near the same might, I might as well forfeit. I don't think even RNGesus can overcome that.

The icon reminds me of the long lost boss of the FS raid except in red instead of purple.

Just a thought we came up with. Maybe the Pirate public raid could be an os raid? I know it's too late for this year but next :)

I still think BoH Mugs, Shirts, Totes, etc. would a) bring in money for Venan, and b) act as word of mouth advertising.

Why should Venan refund people who choose to spend their own money on the game to achieve the end result faster? Spending GS is a decision that you make as a person. No one is forcing you to spend money on this game and there are many high might players who have achieved what they have without spending money on this game. Over the last month I have completed my first few level 9 enchants, without spending GS, and had I known about the enchanting reduction I might have held off. But it was my decision to upgrade the enchants and therefore I don't expect nor should I receive any form of compensation from Venan. What I have said might not be popular to some, however this is only my opinion.



I'm not worried about the gs. In fact I spent 40gs on diamond engraver the rest was silver. My problem is with the potential pe. I have been sitting on this pe for months and decided to use it recently since there was no mention of reduced costs ANYWHERE, even though we've been asking for it forever. I've already used gs to transfer my level 9 enchants 3 times now (once because PvP, second update, third update) I have been punished enough for completing my level 9 enchants a long time ago (before double enchants btw). SInce there was no talk of upcoming major update, and also since people have specifically asked about it, I decided to take the plunge.

So, 4 level 9 enchants last week or two, 2000 pe gone (at least I still have 1000 pe I didn't spend) and not sure how large the reductions are gonna be. It just sucks that with no heads up I spent all these resources. Should have just done it back in December.

On the other hand, THANKS VENAN for FINALLY lowering the costs. now I might be able to afford transferring to my t19 gear.


Agree Jump. Not mentioned anywhere then suddenly dropped on us after many had given up and started using their stockpiles. We know they read forum posts, so a little heads up is far from an unreasonable request.

Not sure about that icon, is that anything from the game? Maybe the CoC boss?


It was obviously a business decision to not tell players of the discount. Don't forget, it may be a game to us but it's a "product" for Venan.

Might have been a business decision. Most businesses however use sales/discounts to drive upsurges in customer activity that make them more money over the course of the sale. Some even offer sale prices on regular-priced goods depending on when they were bought, or tell customers immediately prior to the sale that it is coming so they don't waste money. I wonder how many gs get bought in non-sale times vs sales?

The art is definitely a recolored Guardian of Time from the Vile Realm.

Venan should create a mug that changes color. Normal coloring for cold liquids and red (icon) coloring for hot liquids.
