Would you like to see a Skin Trade-in System at least similar to what I proposed? 67
Yes (63) 94%
No (4) 6%
I would first like to begin by stating that this proposal is merely to give users a way of getting the skin they require through an in-game function based on how we already acquire skins-- not to make skins tradable.
What we have now: RNG based Rolls.
Regular Lucky Box
Weapon Specific Lucky Box
Shield Lucky Box
-----You get the skin you want, yay!
-----You get a skin you don't need? You can opt to keep it or take credit towards a free roll, most players opt to keep the unwanted skin.
The Proposal: Keep all of the above but have in game NPCs that can combine your unwanted skins into a skin you want (of that specific series--important) at a certain Ratio on that character based on their class. The ratio can be universal or perhaps lower for shields and one handed weapons, I would prefer the latter.
Ex1. A player who plays the Trickster/Reaper class really wants Demon Bone claw skin so they roll-and-roll till they have a Wand, Two Handed Sword, Staff Skin, and Blade Skin from that series. They would be able to go to the NPC and pick out either Demon Bone Dual Swords or Demon Bone Claws at the cost of the 4 skins they previously obtained of that specific series.
Ex2. A player who plays the Fighter/Knight class really wants Demon Bone one hand skin so they roll-and-roll till they have a Wand, Mace, Staff Skin, and Blade Skin from that series. They would be able to go to the NPC and pick out either a Axe/two handed sword skin at the cost of 4 skins or one handed sword at the cost of the 2 skins they previously obtained of that specific series (similar to how arena 1h/shield requires half what a 2h weapon would for any class).
Ex3. A player who plays the Cleric/HolyKnight class really wants a Teva Cleric Shield so they roll-and-roll till they end up with a Fortune Fighter shield and a Blossom fighter shield from that lucky box series. They would be able to go to the NPC and pick out a Cleric shield from that same lucky box at the expense of the 2 skins they previously obtained.
-This would give the players more reassurance that they could get the skin they hope for (within that specific lucky box series that isn't weapon specific).
-This would be a deterrence for people who break T.O.S and buy/sell accounts
-buyers: as they would have a easier time getting the skin they want on their account.
-sellers: as they wouldn't get as many customers with people getting the skins they want+ with gold sink at maybe 4-5G(maybe?) they might not want to try to change their skins as much if its just simply to do away with the account.
Cons: It's debatable whether this will cause a loss of revenue for the company as people may be more enticed to try their luck but might get their required weapon with less effort/expense.
Notes: Throughout this proposal I've said "Of that series" meaning there is a limitation--You can't use a Nature's beauty/Phoenix/Criterion weapon to get a Demon Bone weapon or a Shield as they are different series--not to mention they're weapon specific boxes. This also ties into wanting more types of lucky boxes such as Fortune/Stargazer/Cold Hearted weapon Lucky boxes as well which is why I emphasized series-specific.
------Transmutation System could be a good name.
Feel free to add any thoughts/constructive criticism and vote whether you'd like to see something like this. I thought of this because I'm one of those people with several skins ill 99% likely never to use and whose characters don't have their required skins. I also know people who's inventories are riddled with skins but are done trying for the skin they wanted. Others who are just to scared to try their luck and steer clear altogether. So please comment/Vote, much love and thanks!
