Today we are presenting an update that we have been hesitant to add for years, but we think now its the perfect time to implement it. We have decided to finally make most of the useful MvP and Mini-boss cards available via Donation Tokens.
After a ton of thought and debate over the years, we decided it was best to implement this update to the server for the following reasons:
- To further help reduce the gap between newbies and veterans by adding other means to obtain end-game cards.
- To help reduce the over-pricing of MvP cards on the server.
- To help reduce the monopolization of certain MvP cards on the server such as Hades and Elite Dungeon Cards.
- To open the server to those hard working people that have no time to grind and farm but would still like to PvP and compete.
- To increase the amount of donations the server receives and further support advertising and development projects.
There is a catch to MvP cards being available for donation though. These cards are clones of the real cards and they are all account bound. That means you can store them and use them in all your characters in that account but you cannot trade them to another account.
Since the cards are account bound, you may notice that some cards are priced much lower than their current price in the economy. You will also notice that some cards are also more much more expensive than they are priced in the economy. The cheapest card costs 1 Donation Token. It is up to the player if they choose to purchase the overpriced cards at the cost of convenience.
The prices of the cards is still being balanced out and its subject to change at any time without prior warning.
We are aware that this update will increase the cost of Donation Tokens and will disrupt the prices of the MvP cards in the economy. However, we are confident that eventually the economy will balance itself out after the hype dies down.
*There is no expiration planned for the MvP card Shops, they are new donation shops like the rest.

On another note, we have also rotated the Untradeable Collection Headgears Shop. This shop does not contain any new sprites or headgears but this particular shop has not been implemented in a year (aside for the fundraiser event we had in November). As you know, these shops are rotated once every 3-4 months and once they are removed they do not return for another year.
We are excited to see how this update will impact the server but we are hopeful that it will be a good impact over all.
You can access these shops through the Donation Girl NPC!
As usual, your constructive feedback is appreciated and welcome!
