Tree of Savior’s hairstyles cost more in-game than in real life

Bugs, shaky servers, and controversial cash shop prices are plaguing Tree of Savior’s South Korean launch this week.

According to commenters, the release of Tree of Savior was rushed and didn’t include fixes for many issues that trouble the game. To add insult to injury, apparently the publisher instituted expensive cash shop items that flipped microtransactions over into macrotransaction territory. Outrageous examples quoted include $30 hairstyles and $20 to access trade functions. Some players are also irked at the sale of XP potions, although that does seem fairly standard in F2P titles.

Players have already staged a demonstration against the cash shop practices. Will it change Nexon or IMC’s minds? Will these types of cash shop sales make their way to the west? Stay tuned!

Leilonii Hi. I live in NYC and I pay for my Daughters stuff all the time and it’s definitely like $30 for a wash & set and add $10 for tip if i want a cut it’s $35 but wash is always included.

While $30 hairstyles in game sound ridiculous, it’s cheap in real life. A cheap haircut and blowdry for a woman is $45-$50. If you go to a nice salon or get anything more than just a cut, it’ll get more expensive really, really fast.

TheFlameCrow shadowblender so does gw2, swtor, almost every “f2p” game eventually. They’re never even close to 30 dollars. Ever. It’s reasonable to pay like 5 dollars for things like that, and 10-15 for costume sets depending how good it is. 

Here’s hoping IMC will not follow suit with these for the international version. The game has the potential to be something really fun, and fill a special niche and have a long prosperous lifespan…But this is not the way to do it.

kgptzac CloakingDonkey Line with more hugs are we counting EMUs as competition now? I was not aware of this. Because the NA/EU servers shut down quite a while ago if I’m not mistaken.
