I’m excessively picky about what I buy in MMO cash shops. I’ll buy necessities like backpack and bank slots, character slots and classes. Occasionally I’ll buy cosmetic gear like mounts (yes, I have a sparklepony) or clothing (so much money poured into City of Heroes costume parts, you guys), but past a certain dollar limit, I simply won’t pay. Ten bucks for a sword skin? I can’t bring myself to do it, no matter how awesome I will look wielding it. I don’t buy consumables really either, though I have made some bizarre purchases like garden beds in Ultima Online so that I can grow plants while AFK. Shush you.
One thing I don’t buy? Lockboxes. I never, ever buy lockboxes. Ever.
What about you? Are you one of the folks spending thousands on ships in Star Citizen? Are you the guy who buys keys for lockboxes for skin tickets in Guild Wars 2 and puts them on the market? Who are you people? What do you actually buy in cash shops?
