Real World Costs Part 2: What do Items Cost?
From the previous article on conversion costs, we know how much each currency unit costs in real world money, we can dive into figuring out how much things cost in the game.
While some of these items may not seem like a lot of money based on your budget or gameplay style, what will confuse many people and cost them more than they thought they wanted to spend is all of the currency converting.Orbs? Platinum? Hilts? With no real world currency value attached to these items, you won’t think about spending actual money. You’re just using in-game currency at that point. Because of this you may spend more than you thought.
These types of in-game currency practices are done on purpose to trick you into spending more. If you are good with numbers and know what you’re getting into, spend away if that’s your thing.
If you don’t fully understand all the various currency conversions and what things actually cost in real world money, then it’s best you stay away from spending any real world money on any game.
Below is a list of all (I think I got them all) items I could find that had some kind of monetary value.
I am still working on the Bundles and Services, as there are a few items in there that you can't buy or trade from any other method. These items are included in bundles and advertised with extra value over the items we can calculate, so I'm working to figure that out still.
