Why are Re:Zero outfits(Body_alone) going for 30m+?

BAD_Economy?Kawaii overload? 2Moe4me to understand? 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% rates or sumthing?

Last but not least...25-30m for rem+ram boxes? and 10-15m for Rem but puck and Ram tanked to like 1-2m...How Sway? How?

Was inflation this bad or I'm just too out of the loop the whole time?

Don't get me started on that Rem Morning star...It better be a StaffxChainBlade OP SOB to justify dem being 10-12m prices. O_O!!!

I'll just gach on my own later if prices don't become 2 reasonable...but how R U general folks handling dis?

No other collab haz comes close to these insane prices(Non-meta_game power-creeps item) dat I can remember!

    I feel like the prices (at least on Ruairi) were a bit better last weekend. A Ferris outfit was 15m back then but now it's only 30+. I'm not sure what happened other than the supply dwindled until only the price gougers were left? :/ People might be opening the new gacha now because of the stance card things.

    And yeah Ram and Puck actually decreased in price on our server too. That's strange that it was the same like that. Maybe because Rem gives more stats in strength, defense/prot, and max damage? If that's not the case, then I've no clue.

    Yeah most overpriced items are Felt and Ferris outfits (like 25m+ and more), Rem's Morningstar (like 8m+ and even more like 20m+ like wth??? It's stats are crappy and doesn't even look that good, so why???), Roswaal Maid outfit parts (most people overpriced every outfits piece with excuses that Partner Unlock costed them sooooo much lmao), Doll bag prices seem to be okay, not sure how much Ram+ Rem bag is.

    People just being greedy. I was hoping to be able to buy an outfit from another player but I will NOT pay the ridiculous prices being asked.

    Anime Crossover Gacha Event. Not enough items for every player that wants them. The people who are spending money want their monies worth and there isn't a shortage of players willing to pay 30m+ for these outfits. Why sell for any less if all you have to do is look around to corner to line your pockets with gold.

    Lets me honest, this is just simple economics.

    I wonder if people are thinking the Morningstar works like a chainblade and a staff? If it really does, then that might explain the price. If it doesn't, then maybe the people who have one are taking advantage of people thinking it does. :( I would admit, having a staff/chain blade hybrid would be totally cool and convenient.

    It doesn't though, so maybe you're right about people tryna take advantage of that lack of knowledge of some.

    It's primarily from Rem's Morningstar in the Defeating The Ulgarms RP mission where you play as her having the ability to cast intermediate magic (specifically Ice Spear) in the version of the mission where you receive Magic skills instead of Chain Blade skills. So people wind up thinking that Rem's Morningstar can be used to cast intermediate magic (like how (Merlin's) Shyllien Mana Knuckles can be used for both Martial Arts and Magic skills) when in reality it's just a Cutthroat Chain Blade reskin.

    (Just like how Reinhard's sword is just a Glory Sword reskin, with the only difference being that it can receive Erg enhancements. Unless the wiki's wrong, then there's no difference and the wiki's been lying to be about how no other Two-Handed Swords can actually receive Erg enhancements outside of maybe three or so different options.)

    Unlike previous crossovers. This one seems to be exclusively gacha.

    You could buy outfit boxes from other crossover events, no?

    It's not helping with individual pieces going for 3-5mils either. Ur looking at possible 50m+ to complete a set. Especially for a more popular char. :/

    Just greed. I won't even think about buying any of them unless they are around 3m. I don't mind waiting or never buying at all.

    The invisible hand of The Mabinogi Market. Also known as player driven economy. Calling it greed is not really appropriate but that's just my opinion. Not only are they really hard to pull, but I also keep in mind they are in fact overpriced for a person who recently started or didn't play the game much (I started in 2011 but never went past 1000 cumulative before 2015...) But I believe veterans don't have much problem with these prices. Git gud and earn, at least people have a goal to pursue. And thanks to that many other outfits got much cheaper, I remember cross empire wigs going for 4-5m when they were released and now you can grab one for like 800k-1m.

    Even if people are veterans it doesn't give a good excuse that they might have 35m or more in their hands.
    Cross Empire Wigs costed dirt cheap before this crossover too. Also most fashion items drop prices when they get re-released few times already.

    The thing is that some people do not handle money well (I'm one of them). Out of desperation or buyer's high they shell out ridiculous amounts of money which causes people to assume that they can get other people to pay that price, and thus leading to massively high prices. My recommendation is to let people tire themselves out and wait for the re-release when everything will probably drop to 1/10th their price.

    the problem is that "crossover" items will never really return.

    Demand is a good factor too. SAO and Fate/Stay Night UBW stuff are dirt cheap for years now.

    Pretty sure those came in outfit boxes (except some of the Fate/Stay Night clothing but to be fair, they can't be dyed) and people really love Re:Zero stuff (especially Ferris since it can be worn by both genders and dyeable) so it would probably still be expensive. As someone said, "crossover items" will never really return

    The good items aren't dirt cheap. UBW App scrolls start at like 20m.
