I personally love limited edition fluff gear. Aion has this, basically skins that you can apply to items of similar type that changes their appearance. Some skins they offer for maybe a month or so and you never see them again. On one hand it pisses me off if I happened to have been unsubbed and returning finding out I missed something really cool. On the other hand it makes these pieces even that more unique and customized. But if a game offers like a really cool piece of vanity gear for a limited time, I almost always buy it. Same with pets. I also buy gear based strictly on looks. Theres quite a few pieces of gear in Age of Conan that some of my characters would really benefit from, but if it doesnt look good I just wont purchase it. On the flipside, theres some really cool gear that is either sub-par to my current gear or just fluff costume pieces that I will buy over something with awesome stats. In a nutshell, if Im buying something on the cash shop, its for appearance and uniqueness and never based on stats. I hate any cash shop item that has a time limit. In Vindictus there are hair styles and clothing and you basically pay for the duration its going to last. If an item that is not a consumable such as an xp potion has a time limit on it and expires, I simply will not buy it no matter how cool it looks. I feel its a complete waste of money. so, please if you respond keep with the topic. This isnt a discussion on pay to win or anything along those lines. Im just curious to hear from other folks who like cash shops and what they buy and dont buy.
