As I had anticipated, the SGS items are far too pricey with Loyalty Points. Not really worth spending Loyalty on it unless you absolutely need to have something and have no other use for Loyalty.

Well this is a big let down.

Pointless milestone rewards, barely anything buyable with loyalty and what is is predominantly the less appealing stuff and pretty much all vastly overpriced.

Actually the rather high Loyalty prices were in the BTS video. So it wasn't really a letdown, for me at least.

The most useful things for me from SGS: 208,800 for bank spaces, and 56k per dragon keepsake key.

Thank god i spent coins on the spaces...

Oh, only 208k loyalty points for 50 bank spaces.

That's 19 months consecutively.

So 19 months loyalty is worth $11 USD to Jagex. Good to know.

Edit:

At a glance through, Loyalty point to Rune Coin ratios seem to be:

Boosters: 552 LP/Coin
Keepsake: 444 LP/Coin
Hairstyle: 355 LP/Coin

So Boosters are actually the least effective use barring any hidden gems stuck around.

Yep, they really flubbed on this one. By that I mean defacing the value of what loyalty means to the company. I give you good credit and faith. I can keep doing so, but shoot yourself in the foot as often as you want. Eventually people like me won't be around.

The amount of loyalty points to buy even the cheapest of things on the SGS is rediculous and personally more of a slap in the face to be honest (and yes I knew how bad it was going to be from that BTS video). I think they should be at least half the price personally. Ah well never mind ill just forget the merge ever happened

By the way do we really have to have a stupid golden chinchompa to give you free coins on the Squeal of fortune this weekend . I was far happier this summer where theres been pretty much no squeal updates and more of solomon. As far as im aware the community has far more of a problem with the squeal than with SGS, i dont get why theyve suddenly started really pushing it again this month.

I thought the 130k price was pretty decent. But now its over 200k. Thats plain sick on Jagex's half. Expecially with their advertising of 130k.

Damn you, I've been trying to think of a good "price of loyalty" joke all morning!

I just woke up, okay?

It is a lot less than 19 months since u now seem to get 2 lots of loyalty:
One for consecutive membership
One for total membership

So at 1yr+ on both you get 30k a month, assuming you start at 0 that means:
1k
6k
10k
14k
16k
18k
20k
22k
24k
26k
28k
30k
215k for 1 yr consecutive for ground 0.

Still over priced, but not quite 19 months

There's no rhyme or reason to the prices and they seem to be ridiculously arbitrary.

Bank Booster: 208.800 Loyalty/378 coins= 1 coin is 552 loyalty
Mahjarrat Transformation: 15680 Loyalty/88 coins= 1 coin is 178 loyalty
Explosive Woodcutting: 66560 Loyalty/198 coins= 1 coin is 355 loyalty.


On top of this, it seems that they've arbitrarily chosen which items will be for sell for loyalty points. The Goblin mob teleport and the gnome air teleport are the only teleports for sell. All of the other teleports can only be purchased with runecoins.

They have seem to work backwards. We should have more value for higher amount of loyalty points spent at once. Meaning bigger the price of Runecoin more our loyalty points should be worth towards it.

Its kind of when you buy a bigger bottle of coke.

A can costs 60p. but a large 2 litter costs £1.80. you get much more coke than you would buying 3 cans.

Thing is the pricing of the SGS as a whole is pretty arbitrary though, just look at the rediculous cost of things like the assassins pack compared to other items/membership

The shadow assassin was a lot better and cheaper anyways. I forget, but what was in the assassin's pack? You get the outfit, and what else? All the other packs (Guthix/hero) had teleports and emotes, I don't recall the assassin's pack having a teleport.

Aside from the stupidly high price on everything for sale, and the lack of stuff you can buy with loyalty points, does anyone have seen a loyalty costume which is reworked? I mean, just look at the werewolf thing...

Mod Dylan(or i might've been Drake) was in-game where I was and did say they are 'rolling it out a bit at a time' and more will be buyable later. So we might get some better stuff to buy later, but who knows how much later, feels almost as if they are using this as trial to test how much we will spend.

IMO with 30k a month being the max most things should not be higher than ~70k and nothing should be more than ~100k

I get the feeling that a lot of people will buy stuff now simply because they've had two years or so to get everything they've wanted and probably have a lot of points that they wouldn't have used otherwise.

Also, considering you can get loyalty points from Dailies now (most a community-required - ie do the dance emote with 10 other people), the prices really aren't that unreasonable.

That's only part of the Super September promotion. It's unlikely they will keep that past the promotion's expiration.

To be honest, I expected the SGS stuff to be ridiculously expensive with loyalty points. What I was looking forward to the most was the conversion of loyalty store outfits to overrides and the point increase per month. All I want are the auras. I don't want to buy bank space that players have historically been given as the game and its content grew larger.
