Portraits cost sigils now, really?


#1

hey PG, why are you charging me sigils for portraits? If I have to buy them with sigils, I don’t want them. I would much rather use sigils for useful things, like dragons and stones and chests.


Portraits for free.!

Total bull, the half off dragon used to start at 50 sigils, this one starts at 100. Just say you are raising the prices of all dragons and be honest about it.


#4

So the other dragon also starts at 100 sigils :thinking: I haven’t had much chance to look over sigil costs.


#5

THEY RE-SCALED THE PRIZES!!

It will cost you the same to get to each stone. They just distributed the prizes evenly between the stones instead of having it all be random amounts.


#6

Maybe try reading the release notes for the season and stuff.

Or just whine cause you’re uninformed.

And they even change de teh costs of everything after the garnet stone to make it more equal. It’s a win-win

Hi! I haven’t played this game for long but in the current season I think you did a great job with the dragons and I like most of the changes to the game. But one thing I can’t get my head around: why in all the world are you now charging 125 Sigils for a dang picture?!? I don’t want it, I don’t need it but instead of it at least being for free or being able to skip this part, I have to spend 125 Sigils for a freaking picture! And in order to complete the branch I have to buy it? What happens to free pictures? It would be great and highly appreciated if you could reconsider this point in the game. I‘m a girl. I neither want nor need another fat ninja warrior or barbarian or even a new sleazy looking woman with barely anything on at all… :joy::joy: when it was for free, so be it. To pay for something I really don’t want to have: that hurts…
Thanks in advance!
Cheers
Lagretha

Just wait until you get to the 550 sigil portrait… :man_shrugging:

But in the end it doesn’t really matter. Once your reach evo stone X, you’ve spend pretty much exactly what you would’ve spent last season, and will have gathered more prizes on the way. They could have made that 550 portrait 0 instead, and make the evo stone 1100 instead of 550, but meh.


#13

:joy::joy: still. It’s a matter of principle. At least I wouldn’t be paying for something i don’t need…
also: by adding an additional page to the whole dragon branch, getting a dragons up to the last stone already is expensive as hell… it would just be considered of PG to give the pictures away for free. Or make them skippable!


#14

The whole thing actually got cheaper compared to last year. It’s three pages but no item costs more than 700 sigils, while we used to have prices up to 1900 sigils for a single prize.


#15

I really like the new pricing. I’m halfway though the 2nd page and I’m actually halfway through the whole line. I like that rather than a big hill with minimal progress ahead.


#16

What in the common core math tarnation is the issue? lol

I am genuinely confused as to what the problem really is. The branch would have been 30K wether portraits were free or not. 3 bunches of 5 is the same as 5 bunches of 3, so to speak.


#17

:roll_eyes:
Probably you’ prefer increased cost before the portrait plus free portrait instead of current branch?


#18

I like the current structure - much more even pacing (kinda like going up then down a small hill…:rofl:) which means you get more prizes earlier vs last season as they are not all stacked at the end…


#19

Would you prefer that they take the sigil cost and move them into all of the other prizes? Just for the sake of it?


#20

I understand they balance things out on a mega scale. Meaning assuming you have a mythic you would overall spend the same.

But for a low level or relatively casual player, they are definitely at a big disvantage. Last season, you spend 2 pages worth of sigil you get a dragon, and for many low level / casual player, it is all they get (or for those who get 1 page of the riders plus finish one dragon like my alt).

Now this season the mythic itself are “free of sigil” but their actual cost are trasfered to the base tier dragon, that means it is just that much harder to get lengendary. I understand low level / casual should probably not complaint much if at all, but they are worse off if they aim to just finish a branch. Just saying.


#21

Facts… :man_facepalming:

Last season - cost of 1 legendary dragon: 31k. This season, cost of one legendary dragon: 30k.

WHAAATTTT :scream:

Edit: Grumpy pet peeve - people who just complain but don’t actually know what they’re complaining about…
