Elyon says it’s trying to be ‘clear and transparent’ about its cash shop

A game’s cash shop by any other name will attempt to suck all of the money out of your wallet, even if it’s being dubbed an adorable “Ruby Shop.” That’s the moniker that Elyon is giving to its upcoming store, at least.

Kakao and Bluehole said that they want to be “clear and transparent” with what this MMORPG will be selling in its shop, which is why Elyon posted a list of all of the offerings that you can buy (once you exchange your money for “rubies,” that is). The studio said that it’s stripping out a confusing “gears” currency that the Korean version uses in addition to rubies.

Some of the purchases mentioned include inventory slots, dye unlocks, month-long buffs (which function as a subscription), pets, cosmetic-only outfits, emotes, mounts, and combat assist pets. There’s also a “loyalty system” that gives players free loyalty currency every day that can be spent on certain items.

Elyon recently announced that it will be launching in the west early this fall.

If any of that stuff you get can be sold to other players, that’s a problem. also, inventory slots? Anyone else remember early wow and how much money you could make from crafting bags? Imagine not having a buying audience because x amount have extra inventory slots already? I dont like it

They were hoping monocle cat would distract you from noticing that.

inventory slots, could be a problem but it depends on how many we start with, can we quest for more, and how many different random BS drops do we get at higher level?

They mentioned you can earn combat pets ingame, but don’t for looting pets that are 5$ each. How many of those do you need for the game not to suck? In BDO the answer is “at least 4”.

None of these look really bad just by themselves but could very easily be based on how the game plays at max level. (just look at BDO with how weight is a non-issue until you reach at least level 52)

Saying that just makes them look shady, i assumed it would be the same as BDO, with Kakao being the publisher.
