Hey guys!

One of the things we're looking at is how to enrich the VIP experience for an engaged player. Here are some thoughts on what we think would be valuable.

A VIP NPC in town with his own menu of craftable goods. The options available would expand as VIP tiers increased, as would the number of crafts you can make at a time. These options would potentially include:

These are listed as how they would upgrade through tiers. For example Tier 1 VIP may give you access to Crafting 1 Shard every 4 hours, and at Tier 3 this option becomes craft 3 Random Shards every 4 hours, etc


Craft 1 Random Shard
Craft 3 Random Shards
Craft 5 Random Shards
Craft 10 Random Shards



Craft 1 Jewel of Common - Epic Rarity
Craft 1 Jewel of Uncommon - Legendary Rarity
Craft 1 Jewel of Rare - Legendary Rarity
Craft 1 Jewel of Epic - Legendary Rarity



Craft 1 random weapon of Common - Epic Rarity
Craft 1 random weapon of Uncommon - Legendary Rarity
Craft 1 random weapon of Rare - Legendary Rarity
Craft 1 random weapon of Epic - Legendary Rarity



Craft 1 random armor of Common - Epic Rarity
Craft 1 random armor of Uncommon - Legendary Rarity
Craft 1 random armor of Rare - Legendary Rarity
Craft 1 random armor of Epic - Legendary Rarity


Additional things added to VIP Tiers could be (and already are)


An Extra loot pull from the FREE chest that is available every 4 hours
An Extra Craft builder from the VIP Vendor (Craft multiple options at the same time)
Additional Upgrade Builders (Being able to upgrade multiple skills/spells)
Dungeon Keys
First Purchase of Daily Shard Chest FREE
Mild Repair Cost Reduction
Mild Upgrade Shard Cost Reduction
Plat Bonus on Plat Purchase


What are your thoughts on these kinds of options? How would you prioritize these categories?

Weapons
Armor
Accessories
Jewels
Shards

Thanks everyone for your feedback!

Some more info on this initiative: playing as a high-roller, when I log out I have nothing timed running to look forward to when I come back. This system is thought of as a VIP crafting system (with no material requirements) that I could set going before I log off for the day.

Would probably rank shards as #1. Simply because the amount needed is so high. To get to tier 9 spells, pets, talents is almost unthinkable. Gear changes so often while lvling up. So that’s not as important to me. But if I could get a large number of shards, that would be huge!

I was able to reach lvl 12 with relatively low tiered talents, spells, pets. Some bonus shards would make it easier and more enjoyable imo.

Agreed. Shards #1 for sure.

The above options are attractive, and feel they are with in means for the high roller player, however it might feel different when the options are "live" (:

I would prioritize the above categories as being:

Shards - high demand
Jewels - due to the pace a high roller can burn thru gear.
Weapons & Armor
Accessories

A couple of thoughts for if/when PvP is introduced (and people know I am not big into this aspect of games):

This status will give a distinct advantage over those who choose to stay free to play. I would suggest either refraining from introducing this aspect into the game, or if it is implemented down the road, have two separate arenas for both groups. When simply playing the game to farm/level, this aspect doesn't have a huge impact on the community. Once competition is added, there will be warranted concerns.

Well a Vip would be awesome but it shouldnt be that much op so maybe there could be a f2p "vip system" what you can get through missions or play time and the paying vip but maybe as a vip you get the bonus of the f2p "vip" and the additional purchase vip
Maybe as a f2p vip = l1 - 1 shard l2 = 2shards l3 = shards
purchase vip = l1=2 = 4 shards l3 = 6shards
This would let f2p players getting better into the game but the paying options is still way more valuables

Can I get some details on the VIP system? In game it shows what you get at each stage but doesn't say what you have to do to gain access. It says things like 0/500 but I'm not sure what I need 500 of? Is it 500 plats or is it a subscription?

Buying plat gets you vip points. For example, buying 14,000 plat will give you 10,000 vip points. If you go to the store and click on any of the plat packages it will show you how many vip points that pack with give you. And what vip lvl you will be.
