    Default What's up with the sudden increase in value of the elite wave twister?

    Last time I played, it was around 200m.

    Now a clean EWT goes for around 1b.



    Any clue as to why the sudden value increase? Will it continue going up?

    I'm only confused cos xfire hasn't gone up much and I solidly remember xfire being worth way more than EWT.



    I wasn't sure which section this was best placed in but at any rate the general discussion section should garner more attention.

    ewt is just more wanted rn, it used to be ESB which cost the most but now most people like eat because of its uniqueness, both EMS and ESB have a 110 arcane ver, ESB even has a 80 counterpart XD

    Really? I mean it wasn't that desirable last year. Xfire was 500m and dragonet staff was 800m while EWT was only 200m. Furthermore, fossil egg was 400m.

    Now the EWT trumps them all in price. What gives?

    And if it is the only weapon that can do that, surely it would have higher demand than black dragon which is just a vanity? Just saying.

    black dragons value I believe is coming more and more into question. Bd has the price its got because of the hype surrounding it, and most just live how it looks. but is it worth it? that's another question entirely

    You jus want everything brought back... it ruins the grind of the game. Everyone could make gold and buy this stuff and thats what the grind is about. It gets boring when you grind for stuff and it gets brought back for 100 plat.
    You should've gone for the head...

    I login once every few weeks and every time I do it seems like there's more and more old items brought back as vanity items. When you deprioritize pvp and only update pve with events that bring back old items who will have any unique items? Half of being a pve player in this game is to stand in town and flex items and that's just the honest truth. When you come on the forum complaining think to yourself what will you do when everything is re released and you have it all. Yeah you won't do anything. Never be Content with recoloring items or re releasing them. That's a weak minded thought process. Strive for new items that make the old ones look bad. What has this game thrived the most on that has been Abandoned? Easy, Cap updates focused on balanced pvp sets with a boss rush map that drops very rare NEW GOOD LOOKING items. Re releasing items has done nothing to bring anybody back except for the week they drop. It's just time wasted that should be used to bring the game back to it's former glory.

    Going on a bit of a tangent.
    To any developers reading this who think pvp doesn't/didn't drive this game, look at the game now vs 2014 when it was announced the game was unsupported. It had 10 times the amount of players as now. The games cycle was flawless. Pve players farm sets. Pvp players buy them and the game has an amazing economy. And of course both run the "boss rush map" for rare items. Now it's just absolutely unbearable pve events that nobody want to do. Or honor which is so boring it can't even keep og pvp players on the game. It went from play what you want it WILL be fun. To play this pve event once a month it will put you to sleep and give you carpal tunnel from repetition. PVP will always run mmos that have it and PVE will always be there to supply the PVPers. This formula is flawless and you can see the repercussions of breaking it and only focusing on pve, the lowest numbers of players ever seen. Sometimes under 20 at night. There is still time to revert the pve focused mindset because so many ogs still check in on the game looking for these changes to be made. But how much I'm not sure.

    I've waited so long for someone to say this. And to further ur point, I'm sure 2014 pocket legends also brought in 10 times the revenue compared to now. It's a no brainer that PL now hasn't even got an effective business model.

    I asked why the price of EWT went up. Not whether u think it should be brought back as a L110 item.
    In future, read the title of the thread and stay relevant/answer the question.
    Thank you.

    P.S: If you know the reason for the increase in price, Id love to hear it. Though its not necessary now since others have answered it.

    Stay tuned, support my thread I’m going to post. I have an extraordinarily simple way of bringing pl back to life along with helping sts continue to profit off of PL without adding anything new. And I think every og player will love it and agree to it.
