    Keeping in mind probably 4 years worth of breaks total, I've spent about $150 or so since launch. Almost exclusively on pets. I've gotten more as gifts, but not very much.

    0 to ten bucks usually, depending if I run out of phoenix crystals.


    At this point though I'm leaning more on none, this game's more of a two hour daily chore at this point and I can just abuse techniques when things get too bursty so I don't die.

    I'd actually buy things if they weren't a gamble or peddled as "limited time" like it'll somehow entice me to buy their crap. As it stands, I don't like obvious attempts to make me buy things.

    I'm the type to only spend money on online games every once in a while as an "I've Been Better Than That" present. I haven't spent any on Mabi yet, but I can see myself gifting myself a little something in the future.

    That's good and well disciplined.

    I started out as an "I'm never gonna buy NX" player. I was managing but then Nexon had a free 20k NX giveaway to everyone. It might've been as a result of some maintenance gone wrong; I forget. But anyway, the end result was that it was like a pusher handing out free crack cocaine in the play ground; I've been buying ever since.

    I thought a lot of people got banned after that/as a result of that.

    Past me, very frequently. At least $3000 into the game.

    Nowadays I make much better choices. I'm a recovered gachaholic.

    same. back in high school which i played mabi daily. i would actually spend my lunch money on NX. id get like 5-10 Dollars each day for lunch and would just walk over to the shopping plaza next to the school and walk into the store and buy a card with it instead and use it when i got home. that all came to an end a year or 2 later. went to the store as usual to buy the card got in line for the check out and i get tapped on the shoulder.
    i turn around and who do i see? My father, the one who gives me the lunch money each day. he said "where did you get the money to buy that card?" and im just "oh sh** im so F-ing busted"

    from then on he started wanting me to bring home receipts as proof of my purchases with the money otherwise i miss out on lunch for the next couple days for school.

    nowadays i only buy Nx maybe once a month for a few items mainly Pons for style tab. and rarely drop a large amount for something i like. did that a few days ago for the red eyed ceraunus. i got lucky and bagged a second one as a drop and sold it for 15m.

    but ya good times.

    Weeelll.. I had no idea so I just went to my Purchase History and added it all up.. Since 2012, I've bought about 700k NX, which is like $700.
    HOWEVER, some of that might be bought by someone else AKA someone bought me a NX card.
    I remember a friend buying me a $50 Karma Koin card.. so maybe I spent $650..
    Technically I'm not the one buying NX, I ask my parents LOL Allowance and such
    It all wasn't on Mabinogi either. I've spent a little on both MapleStory and MapleStory 2, but the majority of it was for Mabinogi.

    As for how often.. it reaaally varies. Sometimes I ask my parents for some cash for Steam instead and then sometimes I go without asking for any for a few months. (especially recently, dad got laid off, yadda yadda, he's working again tho, but I won't ask for a while)

    I can tell that so far myself have spent around ~$300 NX, including the ~$20 NX which i got from a friend or something. Also won around ~$50 NX from events. I started to play in 2014, so you can tell i'm holding up pretty good.

    Somewhat frequently over the past few months, mostly for gachas that interest me spent a few hundred nowhere near the thousand thankfully but I cut down on that.
