      Re: Crowns Cost for New Dungeons - Very Excessive

      There are now 3 Option to submit your feed back on the crowns pricing of Aquila:

      1. Directly in the Test Realm for those of us that have the access to do so

      2. On the W101 Website via customer service feed back and suggestions
      - https://www.wizard101.com/CustomerSupport/game - Click bugs - Feedback or suggestion - and post your comment.

      3. On the W101 Message Boards:
      The Thread - Please Lower The Crowns Prices


      Several have gone and done the third option such as:
      Quote Originally Posted by Katherine_Light

Compare that to Crab Alley, another Wizard City zone, which only cost 750 Crowns and included both the zone quests AND a dungeon with level 60 farmable gear. Based on a level 60 gear farming zone & dungeon costing 750, I would think that 500-750 Crowns for Mount Olympus, 750-1250 for Atlantea, and 1500-2000 for Tartarus would be more in line with the Crowns pricing model of zones and dungeons thus far.
      Quote Originally Posted by Christo Deathgiver
      As per the message from Professor Greyrose on the Aquila Discussion Thread:
      "Aquila is a new Zone in Wizard City. Much like Crab Alley is an extensionof Triton Avenue. Aquila is an extension of Cyclops Lane."


      So if this is a new Extension of Cyclops Lane, why is it that KingsIsle expects crowns/access players to pay Complete World pricing for all of the extension known as Aquila??

      Aquila (Mount Olymups - 3995 crowns/Atlantea 3995 crowns/Tartarus 3995 crowns = 11,985 Total crowns)
      Compared to Azteca (11,970 crowns For ALL Zones of this Complete World).

      I would love to see the pricing model as detailed in the quoted post. But to be fair to both player and company, the pricing should be in line with the World level restrictions for each zone.
      Mount Olympus - Level 30 - Marleybone/Mooshu - 1200 crowns zone pricing
      Atlantea - Level 70 - Zafaria - 1695 crowns for 2 zones (1450 crowns since this is 1 zone would be fair)
      Tartarus - Level 90 - Azteca - 1995 crowns for 2 zones (1600 crowns since this is 1 zone, would be fair)

      That is a total of 4250 crowns for all of Aquila and is more reasonable and more in line with the crowns pricing model of zones that has already been established for those levels of wizards.

      Please reconsider this, since this is an Extension of Cyclops lane AND is not a part of the main story line, makes it not necessary for Access/Crowns players to purchase at all. If in fact the pricing is not restructured before it is released to the Live Realm, I know I will not be making the purchase of this Extension and save my crowns for a new world that will cost me about the same AND I will enjoy a complete world as well as a new level cap and spells...

      Thanks for you time, attention and consideration of this issue.

      Thanks to all that have taken the time to submit feedback or comment. As I have mentioned before, this is a pretty big issue for both Member and Crown/Access player alike. Please do your part for your fellow Crown/Access playing friends and submit your comment and feedback today. Be the voice that they can not be since most crown/access players do not have access to the test realm.

      Otherwise crowns players and free2play players are out of luck getting into test.
      I am a crowns player because I cant get on the game regularly and and getting a membership would be more wasteful
      for me right now. The crowns amounts for the Aquilla dungeons is proving that KI is getting more greedy as they have
      been accused of many times before, yes the are a company, need to make money yada yada....but this?? really KI?
      Plus the cost for crowns players to get into arena...ugh! Sparky thanks for letting me hitch a ride on your post!!

      Re: Crowns Cost for New Dungeons - Very Excessive

      Can anyone check to see if the crown prices have been changed after today's downtime?

      I would if I could, but I don't have test realm access. Thanks!

      I really hope it's a joke... That's just insane. KI, thanks for listening to us, but this is most definitely not what we were asking for.

      Re: Crowns Cost for New Dungeons - Very Excessive

      Rental? For zones you can receive ANY school's drops in and can't trade them around? At least with the Waterworks you were guaranteed your own school (if any). And we only have 6 hours? I heard something about MONTH rental working on W101 UK (this was forever ago, possibly during Beta, I have no knowledge of their Crowns Model currently).

      And if these dungeons take an hour+ to do, that's effectively 4 runs (conservatively). This is downright insulting. There had been rumors floating around a while back that KI wanted to phase out Crowns-for-Zones since they seem to lose a lot of money on it.

      Assuming you play 6 characters (or start a new account on Crowns) and only level one through the game at a time, and you intend to farm the best gear possible for each of these characters as you advance to make upcoming worlds easier, that's 4770 Crowns. Which is higher cost than the Purchase.

      I don't think I'll be buying (or renting...) these zones at all. If they ever become story critical, well, I guess I won't see the end of the game. After 4 years of continuous play, it's a shame, but if this segment of the community is going to continuously draw the short (and rapidly shortening) end of the stick, I think it's time to call it quits...

      ...
      I only did the first two dungeons. first one is about an hour. but the lowest level I played with was level 68 which was geared for level 30. so for someone at that level it might take more than an hour. especially if they are not that good at the game. the second one it took about 2 hours to do. and all of us were level 90. also you have puzzles in there. and if someone doesn't know it you get extra fights. so you are looking at going towards 3 hours. not to mention someone bailed as he ran out of crowns. my guess would be that you would only be able to do these runs on 2 or 3 wizards. I didn't do the third one which was intended for my wizards' levels. so I do not know if it take more than 3 hours.

      UPDATE: just did the Tartarus dungeon. so we got the puzzle right in there and did not need to do an extra fight. no one died. and we didn't do the secret boss. so that came to about 2 hours and 40 minutes. not to mention waiting around to get people. so for a max. for the rental it would be two wizards. but more likely one.

      Re: Crowns Cost for New Dungeons - Very Excessive

      I think that KI should change the crowns prices not only for the gamers benefit, but also for the company's benefit. With over 30 million users, and about 10 of those legitimate players, and maybe half of those crowns players, those five million would reap a huge amount of money for them. 5,000,000 times about maybe 10.00 = $50,000,000. Wow. That is a lot of of salary pay. Now that could be almost cut into quarters which means 12,500,000. That may still be a lot, but think of what you could do with four times that. You could advertise, easily not break your budget in development or put it towards just wizard101 in general. I am a subscriber, but listening to the crowns players and how unhappy they are, you could lose a considerable amount of players, and therefore much of your current income. And thank you for the game, I would hate to see you lose money and also players to lose this wonderful game.

      Re: Crowns Cost for New Dungeons - Very Excessive

      http://www.wizard101central.com/foru...ricing-Changes Professor Greyrose has given some insight into the pricing scheme of Aquila. Here's the primary quote. All of the following is also available on the Wizard101 Website in the Update Notes.

      As always, Members will have access to these dungeons as part of their Membership benefit.
      Crowns players can choose to rent a single dungeon for six hours, or purchase that single dungeon and own it forever on that account.
      The new prices for each of the Dungeons are as follows:

      The six hour zone rental is now priced at 645 Crowns per Dungeon. Renting these Dungeon Zones will allow most players enough time to experience the story of the dungeon at least once and get at a shot at the crowning rewards.

      Mount Olympus for level 30+ Wizards has been priced at 2495 Crowns. This Dungeon is a particularly difficult challenge with equally amazing rewards, including Zeus' armor set which includes bonuses to healing and reduced damage for each school. Mount Olympus also contains a secret boss for level 90 Wizards to challenge.

      Atlantea for level 70+ Wizards has been priced at 3245 Crowns. This dungeon wonít be a walk in the park but the Poseidonís gear you have a chance at obtaining will be worth the fight. If you liked your Waterworks gear, youíre going to love Poseidonís gear. Like Mount Olympus, Atlantea also contains a bonus boss encounter for level 90 Wizards.

      Tartarus for level 90 Wizards has been priced at 3995 Crowns. This is the ultimate challenge, with equally ultimate rewards including the Hadesí set which is for only the strongest Wizards to discover. You will have to work very hard for this amazing gear that is some of the best you will see in the Spiral. On top of that, there are also rare Exalted Amulets in this dungeon that will make you put your Mastery Amulets in the Shared Bank!
      Sorry about the enormous quote. Pricing has been reduced on Mount Olympus and Atlantea, as has the rental price. This totals out to 9,735 Crowns rather than 11,985, but I still feel that this is overkill. Unfortunately it looks like they're pretty stuck on these insane (and unheard of!) prices. Very disappointed in KingsIsle making this move toward pricing single dungeons at more than entire side worlds [cough] Wysteria [cough]. Especially when those side worlds contained similar dungeons at no extra cost. I guess it's all these hidden level 90 bosses amping up the price :/.
