I spent nearly eight hundred bucks on this site since September. I have yet to craft more than two level three formulas since I became level three a couple of months ago despite spending over ten million gold that was mostly obtained by CASH ITEMS I SOLD ON THE MP. Is there something wrong with this picture, or am I just completely blind?
Your eight hundred is missing another zero and even that is but a paltry sum to our Gaian Overlords. You offend them with such measly offerings! Repent, sinner! Repent!

So glad I've never cared much for backwings. I honestly feel terrible for those that have wanted them for the past (almost) 9 years. What a terrible thing to do to your users, Gaia. Seriously.

Yeah. sweatdrop
Been on since 2004,and hearing backwings might cost 100m+ and other components and alchemy.
It hurts,it really does. I've wanted these wings,and now for them to be released like this,and the artists finding nothing wrong with it.
I cried when I first saw the silhouettes of the wings, and now I'm just sad.

We were told that the backwings would be a hell of a thing. I'm not surprised at all by this.

It's a way to get the formulas out there, even if it's a shitty one.

God, I'm so depressed about this now.

I regret making that "Thank you Gaia" thread around Christmas.

I myself love angel wings and such.

It breaks my heart to know that I'll never get them now.

My dream will never come true. sad

*gets on her knees* I am sorry, Oh Great Lanzer Head in the Sky, for I have sinned with spending a measly eight hundred dollars that could have easily gone toward my business, a new phone, and/or my very own laptop! *crosses her fingers behind her back and grins mischievously* User Image

That optimistic side of me is going "Pepper Tea is lying." Staff just popped those formulas in there right before putting it in BB XD


Actually, I checked the Dev Notice she had spoken about. There is absolutely no mention that the formulas are available via the Alchemist's Case. So, in a way, she is still lying. One thing I don't wish to deal with is lying. talk2hand Seriously, Gaia, I deal with drama and lying on a daily basis. >.> I don't need to put up with such s**t here, where the site is supposed to be fun and enjoyable.

I'm disappointed, but all the same I have yet to see the finished product of the wings (lol if I ever...), so I'm not exactly sure if I should even bother to be pissed now, since I might not like them later on. However I know other people want them period and have been waiting ages, and to me it feels like a sort of "******** you", to those who waited so long for them because they have to have their rares and luck thrown in. That bothers me more then the wings themselves...its the fact they waited this long for something they've suggested for ages, and this is what they get.
On that whole make it hell for the user's since it was hell for us to make them, I have to ask, if those wings were so hard to draw then maybe they need to go back to school for art? And I am being so sincerly honest with that. Or at least look at a bird or bat for refrence, good god. Sorry if anyone does get offended, but enough is enough.

New items in Bid Blast

This week we have a collection of rare formulas usually only found in Alchemist's Case -
Formula 4: Wicked Loud Horn, Formula 5: Vitaman, Formula 1: Angelic Quest Inizio, and Formula 1: Demonic Quest Inizio.

Go bid on them in Bid Blast!


in the dev announcement. I don't think that "This week..." sentence was there when the notice first came out....

And in this thread she says:

Quote:
"I stated this in the Dev alert in hopes that no one would think that these formulas were only available in Bid Blast XD

All of these formulas have been available in Alchemist's Case the whole time. NOT Bid Blast exclusive. Anyone can craft/buy/win an Alchemist's Case and try their chance at getting one.


But who knows, we're talking about the same person who said when alchemy first came out that formulas weren't going to change because people were "already working on them." I'll see if I can find that quote.

Edit:
Here we go:

Quote:
We can't change the existing formulas due to many users already working on them, but we are already working on an update to add some lower level formulas that can be created using some specific common inventory clogs XD...

Right after the Dev Notice, I checked BB, then I went to the Alchemy Forums to post a topic on what they've done, but someone beat me to it. So, I posted in that thread. Checked back a few moments, Pepper Tea claimed to have put it in the Dev Notice that it can be found in the Alchemist's Case. Came to the SF, started a thread on it then found another thread, and Pepper had posted the same exact thing in that thread.

She has been ignoring me ever since the last time I attempted to talk to her about my concerns about Alchemy. That was months ago.
It really sucks. They're choosing to favor those with vast amounts of gold then those who have stuck by them all this time. Its sad.

It is in the Alchemy Q&A thread which I think is a Sticky in the Item Alchemy Forum.

Every time I think of that quote my forehead bleeds from me banging it too much against objects and my hand. Gaia has tweaked things before, whether it be item drops from RIGs, zOMG difficulty, or re-releasing CS items in bundles and possibly more. That excuse is the weakest and most stupid one in the book of excuses especially when you have done it before.

Normally I can see the logic behind some of the crazy crap Gaia pulls. But this whole Alchemy thing just pisses me off. I'm tired of being sidelined because I don't spend dozens of hours a week on this site. I quit WoW because of the "hardcore"/"scrub" dichotomy (among other things) and now Gaia is hurtling straight towards that same black hole with this Alchemy nonsense. I'm not too terribly invested in getting backwings myself (I like the AI wings better), but I've seen threads asking for backwings for six years now. Alchemy is just a poorly implemented feature that's doing nothing more than polarizing the userbase into wealthy and poor even more. Even as a gold sink, this is a crap way of doing it.

Alchemy is not a gold sink, it is an Item Sink. emotion_facepalm Which is tons worse than a Gold Sink! emotion_donotwant
