A lot of people have posted about this issue. I do agree crowns and crowns items are expensive. But here is an easy fix. Why don't we just save gold and NOT BUY CROWNS? Then the problem is solved! :D :D
the reason is because there is lot of desire able items like wings and people want them to make their player look cool and if they cut crowns out KI would lose about 1/3 of their profit
Yes, Kingsisle needs the money to keep the game running.
I have seen the wing mounts in action. I don't have them but it's fine with me. Since when do wings move like that anyway? LOL!
I want a horse. Just saying...
The crown clock sold in Marlybone though.... that would be nice to have! :D I also want the red tree sold for crowns in Mooshu, and the crown propeller sold in Marlybone, and... I don't have crowns! LOL!
