    Oh, hey, it's that disgusting biscuit.

    Mostly good, but gross that dummies are a thing (especially with how horribly prevelant they were before)

    Bought 10

    I bought 30 conclave, will post results when I get to a computer. Anyone who gets Atavian pieces out of conclave, lemme know! Looking for all but feathers and have some half decent other pieces to trade.

    1 monk, 1 conclave, both opened up worth 18cr redeem. Then some randoms, the randoms are doing alright, max I get is 50cr piece. Unsure if I will get more, will see what others get.

    Are wonder talisman pieces not meant to be traded in?
  • FrederichFrederich Posts: 1,243Member @ - Epic Achaean
    they cannot be traded in, no.

    This (especially) sucks whenever you get the orb pieces.. which means you get 1/3rd of a globe that is another RNG roll to not suck.

    Cities talisman pieces trade in for 10cr, but a lot more if you can complete the entire thing.

    Purchased 120 races caches. Trade in was 2.8K, kept the good ones and completed the ones I did have even if they were lame.

    It's why the credit model is what it is, because people still do it. It's mind boggling that as much as I enjoy Achaea there are people willing and able to spend 3 times the price of a PS4 on promotional caches..

    Yeah. I'm always amazed to hear about how much some people spend on here. Especially since most players just sort of disappear after some time. I just don't see a need to go so far even though I would be able to afford it as well. Then again, there are people behind the scenes who do great dedicated work and who should be reimbursed. They have normal lives and families to feed too you know. I like to think of it as salary for them with benefits for you. Don't want to spend so much? Invest more time. Over time it's possible to achieve lots. I can make an average of 5-10 credits per day playing. Stack that over time and it's enough to be able to afford in game benefits. I think the elite membership is a great idea as well, and basically the only way people working at iron realms can really know how much they are going to make in advance, something I enjoy at my work place with a steady monthly salary. So don't hate, don't be jealous. Most top spenders are short-lived anyway.

    It's been nearly two years since I've been trying to finish this set, so I'll post it here if anyone happens to come by the piece. 

    NEED: Quisalis armband eyes piece (the eyes of a steel armband)

    Not really. We laugh and spend more for the lulz.

    Achaea isn't cheap, but is the only game I play now. Is also my hobby. Is also the game I have played the longest, like forever. Is also a game no other games can beat. Is also a crazy quality game. I would stop drinking beer and buy credits.

    Ill say, in (slight) defense of achaea's seemingly outrageous prices, I still have yet to come across a game that offers you something so permanent and impactful as artefacts. Yeah, sure, other games let you buy power, but 99.9% of the time its either temporary power (only lasts X days, or X uses), or becomes completely irrelevant after X months/years due to power creep.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


    EDIT: And it's certainly never as refundable/reinvestable as it is here, even if its at a 33% loss
    Huh. Neat.

    Even after the latest announce buying Conclave pieces still seems to be an amazingly bad gamble.

    I admit being a little salty. I knew damn well I wasn't going to get more than one or two pieces from atavian wings or grandmagi robes if any at all, but of 30 pieces I got 8 hourglassbulb. @Makarios that drop rate sound as intended?

    I spent roughly 1.3K trying to get the Mayan figurine. Only head and torso dropped for me (both in same purchase of 30 caches). I ain't spending any more real monies on it. I can't complain though because I got 3.7k credits from opening all those caches. So it wasn't for naught.

    Fair! Didn't know what you bought or had, didn't expect you to buy more.

    You have been awarded with some fasteners talisman piece!

    Took me a while to know this is a ramshorn piece.

    Can we have more description, like which set it belongs to?

    Dochitha has traded the level 1 piece 'the eyes of a steel armband' to you.

    This took me forever, thank you so much @Dochitha!
