Get your Secret World currency conversion rates here

What is your money worth? Ever since The Secret World’s currency conversion — the one that will turn all the various tokens into Black Bullion — was announced for Issue #12, fans have been eager to learn the details so they can plan ahead. Lead Designer Romain Amiel took to the forums to share the conversion rates as well as the upcoming currency cap.

Here’s the breakdown:

Current currency Converted value
 1 Black Bullion 10 Black Bullion
 1 Sequin of Solomon Island 1 Black Bullion
1 Sequin of the Valley of the Sun God 2 Black Bullion
1 Sequin of Transylvania 3 Black Bullion
1 Sequin of Sunrise 6 Black Bullion
1 Aureus of Initiation 3 Black Bullion
1 Credit of Ca’d’Oro 5 Black Bullion
1 Black Mark of Venice 3 Black Bullion
30 White Mark of Venice 1 Black Bullion

You may want to pull out your calculator and use this list to determine if your Bullion will exceed the caps (which are 2,000 total for non-subscribers and 2,400 for subscribers) because every Bullion that goes over will be converted into 200 PAX, the in-game cash equivalent.

Thanks for posting! I went and took care of it today. I haven’t played this game for a long time, but I still keep it on my desktop, log in, feel overwhelmed because I forgot how to play, and log out. But I still have a mind to go back one day.

Kaaz Aralithful BenesHacha Yep, they are really easy to stack. It just feels like a LOT harder to get due to the horrible scenarios you have to slog through… 30mins of horrible farming…

tanek_09 It’s balanced the same way they’re doing it now. Low to mid level zone item pricing and rewards start at a baseline like 1 token per quest, 1 token per item. The pricing and rewards scale up as you go, so 10 tokens earned at a low level may buy 10 low level items, but only one higher level item. Based on the numbers they’re stating, the cost of endgame items will be 10x what they are right now, and only endgame content will give tokens at a rate high enough to be worth farming in order to get how much currency you need to gear up.

SWTOR does something similar with just a handful of currencies. They have Elite commendations for mid- level tier gear, Ultimate comms for whatever is the current BiS, and Basic commendations for everything else. Even though all leveling and entry-level endgame gear is priced in Basic comms, and you can earn Basics from level 1 up through 60, it’s all balanced out with the pricing. Leveling gear is very cheap (6 tokens per slot), but entry level endgame gear is more expensive (around 60 tokens per slot). When a new expansion comes out, they roll over all tokens in your wallet into Basics, so that everyone starts with a zero balance on the tokens needed for the new tier gear.

Polyanna How do you balance that at the start, though?  Players will always look for the easiest way to game the game.  As it is there are already comments about farming the starting zone missions to get bb after the currency change hits.  Once the content has been out a while it is probably easier to do something like this.
I don’t have a problem with the different currencies in general and think having an in-game way to convert them to the next tier at a loss might even be a better solution than just consolidating everything into one big lump.

salidar Confirmed that we won’t be converting these.  The currencies that are affected are just the ones provided in the list.

salidar I went and pestered them on the forums about this. I also have thousands that I didn’t spend in time. :(
