Black Desert explains Cron Stone prices and ups some horse prices

A letter from Pearl Abyss Executive Producer Jae-hee Kim gives Black Desert players the scoop on what the heck is going on with Cron Stones and the ripple effect changing them has had on the game. A few weeks back, the studios halved the number of Cron Stones needed for enhancement… except for the Dream Horse awakening, which stayed the same, and therefore doubled in price with the patch. Why? Money. Specifically, y’all are earning and hoarding way too much silver.

“While the amount of wealth being accumulated by players continued to increase through various methods such as events, better drops in Monster Zones, and introduction of new drop items (like accessories), the value of Cron Stones have relatively decreased due to their fixed price,” Kim says. “Therefore, we decided to adjust the Cron Stone price.”

Of course, Pearl Abyss notes that not all players are rolling in dough, so it added Cron Stones to Patrigio’s Secret Shop. However, the studio is also boosting the price of the mounts too.

“Due to the recent increase in wealth, the value of Coursers and Dream Horses have dropped compared to earlier times. Therefore, the prices of Coursers, which used to be around 300,000,000 at the Horse Market, and the prices of Dream Horses, which used to be around 4,000,000,000 at the Horse Market, have been increased to 1,000,000,000 for Coursers and 12,000,000,000 for Dream Horses to adjust their values. These price adjustments are just a part of a bigger update we have planned for the Horse Training content. We are currently planning to provide further updates such as reducing the Horse Market fees, bringing improvements to Mount Training, and improving the overall convenience of the Horse Market. We will keep you updated through our future patch notes. In regard to the reduction in Horse Market fees, we are planning on reducing the fees depending on Horse Training Life Skill levels. We should be implementing this very soon. Dream Horses are rare, expensive, and may require numerous attempts. Therefore, we want to make sure we set a standard that is suitable to their value. I would like to truly thank everyone who enjoy this content, especially, the horse breeding community.”
