As you may have read in the announce, elite memberships will now give 1 wonder crystal instead of 20 dingbats at each renewal, and dingbats are slated to be retired. We also will rework aethergoop to only be able to purchase curio packages, gnome-themed artifacts and/or aetherspace items (but they'll also still be able to reskin items, just not be able to purchase credit artifacts). We want to keep clear lines between aethergoop, credits and wonder crystals--for example, we are not open to converting aethergoop to wonder crystals. Before we retire dingbats, we'll release a list of exactly what items will be aethergoop only so you can make an informed decision before deciding to convert dingbats to either aethergoop or credits.
In any event, we believe aethergoop will still be a sought after currency, though I understand some are apprehensive about that (feel free to email [email protected]
if you have specific concerns about your specific situation). That said, we are open to ideas for what else aethergoop could do (other than more artifacts, that's a given).
