    Question Don't we Need an Alternative to Ganda?

    On the last week, I've been farming like crazy. Today I might farm what is equal to 1 million flux worth of material, but the amount of grind required on this process is absolutely ridiculous. Even if this thread becomes pointless, I might reach my 15-18 million objective in less than 1 month. Still, should the game feature of walking on thin air cost so much (provided it is already implement and beyond discussion)?

    I'm ok with Ganda being a status item and having an awesome ability to match it, but making it the only thing able to walk on air sounds like a bad approach. Club-smashing mounts? 3k credits is ok, and even when not on the store they were not so expensive. Bovine Buildmaster? Same. But Ganda is damn worth about 20k+ credits in pouches, which by the way are almost 3 times as expensive as live credits. Even with godlike farming or negotiation skills, one would hardly make more than 200k/hour.

    And with Knight subclass, its ability has jumped from simply "cool", to a total efficiency boost in farming on anything but Neon Ninjas.

    So my suggestion is simple: Implement another mount with the same ability. Not an excuse of a joke like Yabaki, the-bird-that-almost-no-one-ever-saw. I mean something like the 3k credit store stuff, hard to get but not ridiculously expensive so someone would farm so hard they don't feel like playing the game anymore when done. Also, give Ganda some MF and other stat gain so it would not only be just more expensive and "golden".

    While at it, must I ask: What's the reason behind the decision of making Pouches so expensive? Wouldn't just giving the bonus and sovereigns on credit packs be enough? Wouldn't making them almost the same price be a motivation to buy and sell them rather than farming things directly?

    P.S: I do know that changing pouch prices would not have an effect on the final money:flux ratio, just decided to add the pouch discussion since I find it kinda crazy.

    It would just devalue ganda imo. Ganda isn't even that great tbh. Apart from not being able to use it in club worlds, you can't even move down. That may be less of an issue in geode topside, but I've found it cumbersome for prime world farming with dungeons where you go down stairs for example which of course you need to unmount to actually do so and not just block yourself off..

    There needs to be in incentive for people to buy raw credits over credit pouches, hence why you get more of them for the same price as well as the sovereigns. The cash price of credit pouches is based off of that with the intent to make them a worse deal than raw credits. The flux price of credit pouches is determined by the supply and demand of the item, as well as the current value of flux.

    Why does there need to be an extra inventive to buy raw credits? Either way they get money...
    Trove logic: don't tax the marketplace, tax the cash shop.

    Eh, you can easily make around double of that with high enough magic find and movespeed.

    Well, did it. Went through hell and beyond.



    Proof of my insanity:


    (Yeah, I did craft the Dragon, so that's 100 more? Oh and it only covered 2/3 of the value, good thing I had 4.8m Glim from Worldspring 2017)

    No one deserves to do this much farming BTW, it's just ridiculous. Sure, it's possible to get it quickly with tons of MF, but that requires 2 or 3 Gandas worth of gameplay/flux to secure the Dragons... And then you farm it.

    Now gotta work that Knightly arse.

    Congrats. Maybe it is a lot of work but it wouldn't be special if it wasn't, plus you'll appreciate it more now that you worked for it.
