Hello Guardians!

This week, a new Alchemy element has appeared at HQ: The Hand of Midas!

Legend has it that this object will bring you prosperity and riches, but be warned: it will take rigor and a pure soul to create this item.

Will you be able to create the alchimic gold of legends?

Have a great day on Eldarya !

Let me guess, it will also take a million maanas to craft this item?

With that name, I supose it changes the color of the item to gold. I hope the 'a new Alchemy element has appeared at HQ' means we can find it in the HQ.

Accordong to the items description, it will give you 30 Gc if you craft it. Pretty useful for f2p players actually.

Since 6 maana=1 GC, and 30 GC=180 maana, I am expecting the recipe to cost around that same amount too. Or maybe a tiny bit higher, at most 300 maana.

I'm quite skeptical with the ingredients though..
Maybe they're the combinations of existing alchemy final items :<

Let's see how things go..

Ingredients:
1 Nugget of Gold
1 copper rock
3 damaged claw
2 sharp tooth
1 polished shell
+ 300 maana

I don't actually hate this idea but it's still expensive...

More alchemy?

Even if it seems “useful,” it’s a pass for me. Considering that items like event top, bottoms... etc cost more than 30GC, you’ll have to craft this multiple time to attain the desired amount of GC. Ultimately, you have to spend more than 300+ maana (and this is if you have all the ingredients).

But with all seriousness...the idea itself isn't too bad, I admit that. But if I'm right, and I know I mostly am, it's going to be A) expensive or B) extremely hard to find. I'm not sure if this is going to be very popular...

The idea itself is not bad, but considering how expensive it is, compared on how little gold we would get, I'll pass. I'd rather just buy gold if I feel the need.

Are you friggin' kidding us?! Are we being pranked? Is Ashton Kutcher hanging out in France giving Beemoov ideas to get a rise out of players just to later reveal it's all a joke and we're on camera?

You tried the alchemy approach and it failed. Just let the idea die with dignity and quit forcing it to live on. No one likes it, ok?

Would be great if it didn't cost a lot but since it does I probably will never make it.

Alright, okay... a pretty good idea. I'm cool with this. It's a little bit expensive, and I'm really tired of alchemy, but at least this item has a good idea behind it. Props, Beemoov.

This is actually pretty cool. Another option for f2p players to get GC? AND it would be guaranteed. We don't even get that with the bindles. The ingredients aren't so bad; the mana is a bit steep, but overall I like it.

This time the idea is nice, if it is F2p I guess I can't refuse /static/img/forum/smilies/big_smile.png
But.. why alchemy /static/img/forum/smilies/neutral.png I really hope there could be some more interesting ways to get new items than just "a new alchemy thingy"

I can buy gold if I want, but that's not an option for everyone. This is actually a really good idea. Sure it's a little pricey effort wise, but considering gold is a currency you normally buy with real money, it's understandable. I love this idea, and I hope Beemov makes more choices like this. I'm more willing to spend my money when the company takes care of the people who can't.

I do not have real money to spend on this site, so I think the ingredients and maana are a perfectly fair trade off for a guarantee f 30 GC.

I think the alchemy idea could've been really cool, but the price for all these events and items is just oof. I love that you're trying to create an option for players that aren't able to pay real money, but 30 GC is really not a lot for how much it takes to make. I don't get why the alchemy concepts are constantly being shoved down our throats when it's clearly a ripoff.

This seems a much better idea than using alchemy for events (I hate that). 300 maana might be a little bit expensive, but it's a good opportunity for those who can't get gold in other ways (buying). And the ingredients are all foundable on the map at least. This might be a reason for me to use the alchemy aspect of the game. However, I really hope this doesn't mean that they will continue to force us to use it in events.

I will use this I won't lie...

Like there's items that can be purchased (IF they return to the store). Ex:
https://www.eldarya.fr/static/img/player/mouth/icon/56583d0055dce7d2f41e3c6ce7139c8d.png <-15 GC https://www.eldarya.fr/static/img/item/player/icon/613a26acabf184648002e1d78914ca32.png <-20 GC https://www.eldarya.fr/static/img/player/eyes//icon/d0433753e7cf47ddc40b668eaa08ccb5~1499783430.png <-30 GC


But then there's this outfit which is beyond me.
https://www.eldarya.fr/static/img/item/player/icon/cc1430943ffc98ad0628dd82aa4060ef.png <- 225 GC https://www.eldarya.fr/static/img/item/player/icon/11c95729dd4d5dddf3e3c60b815dba70.png<- 125 GC https://www.eldarya.fr/static/img/item/player/icon/99a73c45a43342137aa7ceff00767ac2.png <- 125 GC https://www.eldarya.fr/static/img/item/player/icon/f1b5d46b2ae699bc061844501b07ee4e.png <- 50 GC https://www.eldarya.fr/static/img/item/player/icon/d5bf2e2bd89fa8c82e9d38cc5ee3a0db.png <- 200 GC

Together it's 725 GC = 25 times getting the hand = 7500 maana for one outfit.

And that's without the hair.
https://www.eldarya.fr/static/img/player/hair/icon/12b9f4601484a4de1ffb40ccc7ed012d.png <- 150 GC

One outfit ends up costing 875 GC= 9000 maana. And that's 180 days of gameplay.

There is no way anyone would spend this much.

Ok.
Good idea.
Maybe poor execution, but still, a good idea.
I am not a person to buy gold.
Am not the person to want special items which cost gold coins - most of the time.
I do like some backgrounds and want to get them so...This might be good to craft, say, two times and get 60 GC and then wait for Black Friday for the prices to drop in order to buy the backgrounds.

i have to say, this is a good idea.

f2p players like myself can't get gc except from bindles, and even then it's a tiny amount that's never gauranteed. with some patience, i can get the maana and ingredients saved up to make it.

i have 7gc currently, all from a year of bindle opening, so i've definitely spent hundreds of maana more for a lot fewer gc.

sure, the maana amount is large, but gc are cash-bought currency up until now. this is a much better alternative to spending upwards of 40 maana a day for a 5% chance at just 1gc.

the ingredients list is a bit daunting, i'll admit, but the items can be found in exploration or in the marketplace for cheaper than the store price.

i look forward to being able to buy more past event outfits, too. most, if not all, of the best event items were available in the store - for gc only.

tl;dr - sure, a bit pricey, but with a lot of patience, it's possible. and it's great for f2p players who could previously only get gc from bindles, since it's way way less of a maana drain on us.
