    I was calculating how much cost to make warrior shell +7.

    So here it goes:

    1. I can make in average 1 of 5 shells from +1 to +7, which is good statistic.
    2. For upgrade i use NUSx1 + BUSx5 and that cost 264k + 5 x 2.64m =13.5m
    3. Shell +1 cost 1.5mil - 2mil

    (13.5m + 1.5m) x 5 = 75m

    Of course, not every shell burn from 6->7, so u save there 10-12m per tour (some got burned on lower +).

    So at the end u get shell for 65m.
    And dies is full of shells +7 that cost 50-55m.

    CONCLUSION: Upgrade of warrior shells on dies doesn't pay out.

    dies economy is in danger..... upgrade scrolls price and pot price should be decreased at least 7-8 times.... it must keep up with item prices

    Upgrade to +3/+4/+5 with regular high class scrolls, the shells are worth less than BUS anyways.

    then don&#39;t upgrade shells to +7...
    There&#39;s alot of other things you can still make money with.
    For example using tears and trina&#39;s will get you alot of money...
    The rest I&#39;ll let you figure out urself, it&#39;s pretty easy, just analyse market.

    yep, upgrade and farming doesnt pay out..

    i got 10m and i burn pots like hell i dont know where to get money for repot..

    i sell warrior shells and sin shells for 750k, and i need to merchant all night to sell only 2 of them.

    this is bullshit, k2 need to do something about the lowprices
    i also was thinking what will happen at Christmass
    if raptor +1 cost 35m now
    it will cost 10m at events times even less..
    so farming snow mans wont help u as well..

    Upgrade never pays off, at the end anvil will always OWN you. You can make 2-3-4... times a profit but then you loose 3-4-5... times in row.
    There are only a few luckers who make profit with anvil, and those are ppl who upgrade to +8/+9 only. Anyway dont whine about prices, you can earn enough cash. If you ask me i hope this stays for a while. Fuk those times when gbs are like 1-1,5 usd, and when you need like 1232424 accounts to stash your gbs Its all about patience and using your brain...

    I love these low prices I am finally able to buy some new gear after I farmed mastodons/cardinals/ghost warriors (or whatever) for a while. Before all this I couldnt afford shit. Upgrading skills were/are whack -_-

    And now a days, you dont have to pay USD for every+8 high class item! Makes me heppeh! ^_^

    Exactly...
    There&#39;s enough money to make, even with upgrading. I made about... 13gb profit last week in Pathos, but then again I was pretty lucky.

    You are correct . Without the infusion of duped coins nobody should be able to afford pots in this game . Prices on npc items are very high , and on a long enough time line , ppl will not be able to afford the basics in this game . In every mmorpg the basics should be easy to get .
