For Core L2 Store has always been more difficult since players could at best afford to spend the same but usually less money than players on Russian servers while pricing was multiple times higher which meant they got way less stuff for their euros. The combination of low incentive to buy overpriced L2 Store and new(back then) Adena-making areas like Sea of Spores/Refinery/Planderous/Land of Chaos/Pavel/Archaic/Fafurion temple etc drained the market of important items. This trend continues and it's worse than ever today with Golden Altar, people who farm it make a lot of Adena but there aren't any items to buy, but it's not the instance's fault. This is a result of a very low supply of items through L2 Store, which also creates inflation because very little Adena are absorbed into the server. For example, Dragon and Cursed weapons can deflate but only when non-grocery materials are available, which there aren't. Items that we and RU(if I'm not mistaken) commonly miss are Forgotten spellbooks, Codexes, PvE-P runes, P./M. skill crit talismans, Rune stones but the problem on Core extends to all consumables and almost all items in general. This situation not only affects Core's players but also the few newcomers who are serious investing euros but look at an empty market without a realistic option to gear up. People like them usually don't have the patience or even bother wasting years planning to gear up which results in them walking away. My suggestion as a little experiment is a Tarot discount. Bring them at the RU price with 30% discount that they usually get so 0.50€ per Tarot, even though the rewards are lackluster the response of our players will still show how empty and in need of items our market is. I am urging everyone to speak up their minds and the devs to act on the issues. It has been slow and painful for a few years already, not to mention that the latest patch kills all CP-group play making the game 1v1 for DDs while supports have nothing to do anymore.
