CoffeeDemon Posted July 26, 2016 Share Posted July 26, 2016 Idk. I just checked the currency exchange yesterday and there were almost no listings (like 1 or 2) and the rates were 1:5 min and 1:8 max. I think it used to be a lot higher and you could get a lot more hongmoon coins for your gold. So most players will probably not bother because it's not worth. I believe one reason for this is that NcSoft is selling items that have a market value so they dictate the maximum gold to hongmoon coin ratio. It automatically adjusts to a level at which you can't just abuse it to sell gold to buy items and sell these items for more gold. Why would i want to buy something like soulstones from the hongmoon store anyway, when I can just use my gold to buy it on the normal market? There is no proper reason to put these items in there other then manipulating the exchange rates. I can only guess if they are doing this on purpose so more players invest real money to get cosmetics or training expansion or if they just failed to consider all the consequences. I think it has become a lot harder to aquire certain hongmoon store exclusive items/servies by trading gold and if this is not intentional, NcSoft should take measures to counteract this trend. A trend that btw also increases the "pay 2 win" character of the game (low exchange rates = cheap gold). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
