Casual Rewards


Recommended Posts

Sup all back again. New month new request.

 

I get that prismatic Aether things are supposed to be a money sink, but

not everyone has time to farm, and

not everyone likes to farm, and

some folks don't play the market, and

Some of us (myself included) play casually, a quest here, a mission there (when I can, if I can)

Can we get a way to convert reward merits into prismatics?

I dunno what the amount of conversion should be............20 reward merits per prismatic? 25? 50? 

 

We all play differently and that's ok. 

 

Its easy to criticize a suggestion but can you suggest an alternative?

The question would be to what degree should certain rewards be exclusive.  That being said, any content that can be sold/posted to the AH will eventually make its way there, and therefore purchasable with inf.  I'm not against the idea, but I imagine the conversion rate would probably be pretty high...

I was just thinking, that it would be nice if we could set Orobouros missions to a higher difficulty and get prismatic salvage as a reward. Nothing crazy, maybe several levels of increased odds for one to drop at the end of a mission culminating in 100% guaranteed for a high enough difficulty setting.

Quick napkin math

 

5 merits ~ 1 million inf

The going "I want it now" rate for prismatics is a little over 4 million inf

 

That means that it should cost about 21 merits to keep the price the same

 

*HOWEVER* 

 

I believe there should be a (slight) penalty for the merit to inf ratio.  Not as bad as the Catalyst penalty (that's just way off imo) but say 30-40 merits for a prismatic seems fair to me.

This is not a shameless bump. I discovered on 4/20 (yea seriously)
