I have realized lightly that KI's newest mounts are ridiculously expensive, am i the only one who noticed Seriously some of their mounts cost as much as 14000 crowns which is the equivalent of almost $30 in U.S. currency. That's ridiculous! $30 for one mount Not to mention the newest gear is insanely pricey. I think that KI needs to lower their prices, I am a loyal fan and player but I can hardly keep up with the expenses of this game, am I the only one who thinks this

I think my grip goes the other way - have you noticed that the amount of mounts that are available for gold have remained the same since I don't even remember when? I think that ended when the cat line came out?

I am really not about making my wizards the coolest in the Spiral and have found the bought for gold broom goes just as fast as any Crown mount offered.

Still I do agree pricing the mounts above what most would pay for them may not be in KI's best interest.

No your not the only one who thinks this, but KI still needs to make a profit once the item becomes older and less popular they will lower the price, trust me!

What that saying Mrs. GreyRose likes so much? "With patience victory is assured"

For really expensive mounts, I usually wait for a sale. Mount-a-Palooza is a great time to buy. I think they hold them in the spring. I forget.

Actually........I'm with you on this! I know they are trying to make a profit, but there are one million people playing this game...which is a lot. I think they do need to lower their prices just a tad for people to be able to buy them. Also, a whole lot of players will buy the new prices and constantly buy some.

While a mount might look really nice, (already mentioned) it doesn't make you go any faster than any other mount. I understand why people buy tons of mounts, of varying kinds. Nothing wrong with that at all. I bought one of the winter holiday mounts and the panther mount for crowns. The Candy Cane Broom mount was to replace the Panther because I just didn't need animation on my mount. I have since bought the 2 gold-buyable brooms and have bank-shared them. Mounts are very nice and I'm glad they have such a wide selection. Best thing to do (also mentioned) is to wait when the mounts get discounted.

I believe the amount of players is a bit higher than that, currently it is at 35 million.

Hey, you can't blame Kingisle: they have to make a profit somehow. Sure, crown shop items are a little pricey, but if they didn't make them a pricey, they would increase the price of something else. Also, I would like to point out that most things are optional, so you can live without things, and some items can be bought with gold. They also have sales for most of these items. Just putting my opinion in this situation.

Yeah They are very expensive I mean come on the game itself is pay to play and between pirates101 and wizard101 I'm sure KI won't go broke any time soon They can stand to lower the prices a little bit
