    * Add 2 crystal slots on all Pearl Head gear.
    * Add Dummy Crystals in the pearl shop/loyalty shop

    Dummy Crystals
    - Vision +15.
    - If you die and it results in crystal destruction this crystals will break first.


    Nothing worse than finally getting one of those JIN Crystals then die from a random mob and breaking it..


    Added 16OCT2017

    So it finally happened, loaded to Val6 for bheg after killing bheg on vel4, and some DK "AzamiBase" instantly started attacking me while I started hitting bheg and bheg just started his special attack which ended up getting me killed resulting in the loss of 2 JIN Crystals (on on the hand, other on the head slot)

    Cmon Kakao, add something like this on the pearlshop...

    Its intended to be a silver sink, not something players enjoy.

    I understand the dislike when event and unique ones arent immune since if broke, you cannot get another, they really should but I guess when they are BIS ... well ... they still should otherwise players tend to never slot then.

    I don't understand how you can die to mobs. They all together hitting like a sponge.

    Yes, we need to punish people more for playing game, terrible servers aren't enough.

    You can PvP in Kama for example.

    Yeah there needs to be more protection for these crystals

    Idk what the rng is on those crystals are but from a guess they'd be worth a few hundred mil maybe even up to 500mil each, so a full set could cost over 2-3bil not to mention hours and hours of grinding to actually get the mats

    I likethe idea of these extreamly high end crystals that inly the best if the best can stomach making, but having them break is abit too much

    There already is:

    - Inventory items loss (rng what gets lost).
    - Enchantment level loss on items if player conditions are set correctly (rng when and what).
    - XP loss unless you have correct revival item.

    So do we really need RNG crystal loss on top of all that?

    How about you be cautious about dying instead of asking for a safeguard for everything. That's not how real life works, so why should a game where the devs have expressed that they want things to be as realistic as possible be?

    And then the only crystals anyone would buy are cheap ones to get blackstone power.

    Things being destroyed is the only way the economy works. Durability loss on failed enhancements, accessories blowing up, crystals breaking. Without any of this we end up with a market full of useless stuff.

    And you won't equip expensive crystals because you're afraid to lose them, some of us do use them and make it a point not to die in the already absurdly easy PvE.

    In that case we should have permanent character death. You die, you are dead with no way to resurrect.
