Why in the hell did you raise the cost of high quality wine?

    TITLE

    WE DONT EVEN HAVE MANOS YET !
    THAT IS A HUGE KICK IN THE NUTS FOR ME

    you rise the price / value of energy

    but every single item we can get with energy did not get a raise.

    so over all, ATM its a BIG WASTE to do gathering until we get manos gathering that KR players say was not worth it.

    the new market might help, I don't know for how much energy pot sell on it

    but for now
    HQW is 66.666 silver for 1 energy
    and the big 50 energy pot that take 200 energy to make cost 57.600 silvers per energy

    this mean you use 60k silver every time you gather(and it cost you 1 energy) + the cost of everything you use

    to get 1 meat that is worth 1.500 silvers

    They changed the price because they added the ability to buy energy with pearls. They're just being greedy scumbags TBH. Feels MMO's in 2019 man.

    Kinda wish I bought 20b worth of high quality wine before this happened. I'm sure some people with foreknowledge did. Once again out of the loop and in the dark.

    I highly doubt someone with 20bil would stomach the amount of gathering required to use all that energy.

    Your logic is somewhat flawed. Your characters are generating energy no matter what, at no cost. You have a choice on how to use that energy. One of those uses is turning it into pots, at a rate of 200 energy for a pot worth 2.7 mil, which you can sell for about 2.3 mil silver (with a VP). That's about 11.5k silver per energy. That is the (opportunity) cost of energy when you're using it for other things, like gathering. 60k per energy is the cost if you buy energy pots / wine.

    EDIT: and by the way, there's been a much better source energy than those pots in the cash shop for a long time now.

    this changes was needed, else people will not buy the energy potions other adventures created and selling in the marketplace.

    1,7mill for 50 energy from NPC NO COOLDOWN or 2,2mill for 50 energy from marketplace....

    this change was NEEDED! else it was like an exploit, that u can get faster energy then with the potions you can buy in marketplace AND they haveing a cooldown!

    I am a life skiller and I can barely stomach 1hr gathering everyday. I think you overestimate them.

    I have to disagree. Most people do lifeskills because grinding is boring and quite frankly, gathering is a form of grinding albeit grinding for mats instead of monster loot.

    I don't think it was that much of an issue or even an exploit.
    Yes it was cheaper but so annoying to do because of the felt millions of clicks needed to get a decent amount of energy from it.
    On the other hand the pots may have a cooldown, but you get the 50 energy instantly AND can buy them via maid while out in the field gathering (or before you go) and not sit in town for it.

    so i guess they really did it just to promote the cash shop pots, like others mentioned already.

    Hmm this is not the case in MMOs like Elite: Dangerous, ESO, GW2, FFXVI. Where cash shops strickly cosmetics and items you can farm in game.

    So this is not MMO's in 2019. It's Korean P2W MMO's in 2019. Get it right! And if all you know is Korean P2W MMO's than I feel sorry for you.

    Never!!!. I only do the ones I enjoy and alchemy seems like a pain on the gathering side.
