Crown items have gotten worse except for the mounts. I was more into this game when you could buy any crown item basically in gold, just for a very high price though. Like take the Astral hat of the helephant for instance i bought that hat and i havent taken it off since. I mean those crown items are actually worth trying to get in gold. Most of the old crown items were way better then these new ones. But like the old crown items mounts are worth saving up for.
