I did the math and figured out how much real life money some of this stuff costs and let me tell you Turbine is making serious money. $27.93 for a mount that only goes 68% percent faster? I'd feel like the price wasn't so bad if it was 100% faster...but 68?
The 6th bag costs $13.93 US. That's per character so it would really add up fast!
One black dye is $1.40 US, so dying an entire 6 or 7 piece outfit would be pretty darn expensive.
I won't even start in on the mithril coin but do the math and you are going to vomit over how much those 50 mithril coin outfits really cost.
When I first started playing this game I spend hundreds of dollars, I was like a kid in a candy store. Buying cosmetics and dyes and the expensive mount and all that. I don't do that now. I got it out of my system. But this game is the most expensive "free" game I have ever played lol.
