Sace this bonus for the 4000 NCoins what kind of Stat gives?

I also support the idea, that the best NCoins promotions would be if the price of the NCoins would be discounted sometimes

Or if we buy example 4000 NCoins would get -25% discount from any item what we buy from L2 Store under a week or something like this.

Really dislike how you cap out at once of each.. should not be based maximum per account.. i personally dont see a reason why it would matter if you did uncap it.

Seems to me like you could have put a lot more thought into this one and done something like a 30% discount up to 12k NCOIN or something.. after that normal price.. this would have both made you more money.. and given everyone a reasonable weapon boost to catch up to there competition as thats where the coins would have been spent likely..

As I have now seen the rest of the announcement items i have a few things to report

1) There is no images for these items, in fact it seems your image assets servers are not serving quite a few of the images for quite a few of the blog posts off the front page.

2) Unbind Scroll R- or R95-Grade: Depending on the grade of the scroll, converts an R- or R95-Grade Bound item into a Standard item through the Blacksmith of Mammon. There is also a slight chance of obtaining a Blessed version of the item. - This is to expensive for coins. The black market between players people can buy adena and buy it cheeper as a real in game item rather then from ncwest. I suggest dropping this to about 30 dollars, 2400 coins or so. Should actually lead to some sales.. at the moment people are going to rather buy adena from the plethera of bot farming sellers that (ncsoft has yet to deal with).

3) That is without a doubt the worst pack to spend 50 dollars on in history. Shoudl also have an unbind scroll in it IMO.

1 Evaís Rune 7-Day Pack (this is the only item thats really going to attract anybody.. and thats only olympiad contenders.. and I personally wont pay 50 dollars for this item alone just so i can win an oly match).
9 Feathers of Blessing
9 Heavenly Cocktails
10 Silpheedís Wing
10 Silpheedís Blessing
10 Hardinís Divine Protection
10 Hardinís Blessing
3 Scrolls of 100,000,000 SP (LOL? just cause you know the SP aint already overflowing and easy as it is).

4) 3 Evaís Rune 1-Hour Packs (perhaps these should be 5 hours instead and you might actually get some sales).

All in all, i have been known to spend a large amount on ncoin for a number of these promos but I dont really want to spend anything this month based on these rewards. I would be interested in unbinding a heavy set, but at 50 dollars an unbind thats just ludacris. I can see like a 100 or 125 and this would be something id purchase.

It's your basic Head Accessory Enchant Scroll: increases M. Def by 2, greatly increases starting at +4, can be safely enchanted up to +3.

The Head Accessory Pack gives a random accessory from a long list like Ears, Eye Patches, Red Devil Horn, Angel Halo, etc...

The images on the promo and store update pages are now fixed and I'm checking for any others.

I really liked the wizard hat given out before more, if you would do that again I'd go spend nccoin without a doubt. This is a nice extra, but nothing worth extra spending for for me.

No the promo explicitly states that only coins used in the L2 Store in-game count.

Par for the course anymore i say.....this game is getting so ridiculous anymore.......GREED is what fuels this Monster called L2 and unless and until ppl quit buying NC Coin...things like this will happen and NC will push it to the limit to see how far we will go and accept...so go ahead and keep buying coin...you can all thank yourselves cuz your the ones willing to put up with this crap and NOT make a stand...i for one will not put up with it...i dont put up with these kind of antics in the real world and i surely wont in this game......Now you go and think about that one...ask yourself if you would tolerate this in the real world...i can bet ya wont!
