Although ArcheAge Gold price in April had been up and down throughout the month, its in-game currency price was always in the range of $30 per 2,000 ArchAge Gold as predicted in our March RMT Roundup. Actually, ArcheAge Gold had been staying in this range for the whole 3 months starting from February after the release of patch 2.5 “Bloodsong”. Looking at ArcheAge news, there haven't been much update on the site as well. This brings doubt that what will be the next update of the game. Because of this, ArcheAge Gold price have a tendency to be slightly lower in May. The cheapest Archege gold was on April, 01 2016, which is 2,000 ArcheAge gold for (US) $28.84 and the most expensive was on April 29, 2016, for $32.03. The discrepancy rate was only at 16.92%.
Blade and Soul GoldIt was quite surprise to see that Blade and Soul Gold was on a decline again although its price was just set in place last month. The decrease rate was quite serious without a stopping sign. The PvP season one started on April 13, 2016 did not help increase the gold price at all. Blade and Soul Gold price at the end of the month is $1.95 per 10 gold which is almost 40% lower than the first day of April, $2.99 for 10 gold. The new multi-player content “shattered empire group content” should not help its RMT price much as well. Blade and Soul Gold should be even lower in May. It may even reach $1.50 for 10 gold. The cheapest was on April 22, 2016, which is 10 Blade and Soul Gold for $1.79 and the most expensive was on April 02, 2016, for $2.99. The discrepancy rate was as high as 64.04%
EVE Online ISK
EVE Online ISK price did not have any change much although the game was already released for several years. In April 2016, its ISK price was almost unchanging at all, staying in the rate of $36 USD per 2bn ISK for the whole month. The is definitely not what we expect to see since it just had EVE Fanfest 2016 between April 21-23 in which normally should raise the RMT price. With this in mind, it is highly possible that EVE Online ISK price will be in this range again in May no matter it just released the Citadel update on April 27. The cheapest was on April 08, 2016, which is 2bn EVE ISK for $35.49 and the most expensive was on April 26, 2016 for $36.00. It is only 1.44% different.
Final Fantasy XIV Gil
Final Fantasy XIV Gil price now returned to its normal rate of ~$15 USD per 5m Gil, which was the same rate before patch 3.2 took place back in February. It's believed that FFXIV price should be in this range for quite sometimes considering that it might not have any major update again in 2016. From what we've seen so far is it only had a plan to add some more solo contents in patch 3.3. However, it shouldn't have an impact in the Gil price at all. FFXIV price should be in the range of $15 USD per 5m Gil in May and should be slightly lower a few months after that. The cheapest was on April 29, 2016, which is 5mn FFXIV Gil for $15.10 and the most expensive was on April 04, 2016 for $22.90. The different rate was as high as 51.66%
Guild Wars 2 Gold
SWTOR US CreditsSWTOR US Credits current situation wasn't much different that Guild Wars 2 much: suffered from the dramatic decline and now reach the lowest price in history. However, SWTOR have a very strong point that no other MMOs can compare: its long rich history from the epic movies. And this year there's going to be another new Star Wars movie which should have a great impact on SWTOR, like it did before last December. Of cause, this isn't an only factor that can keep the game alive. BioWare team still added new more contents to the game to keep current players active. With these two factors, SWTOR RMT market should still be popular for a while although the game was launched 5 years ago. The cheapest was on April 28, 2016 which is 10mn SWTOR US Credits for $11.99 and the most expensive was on April 15, 2016 for $15.98. The declined rate was still as high as 33.28%.
Thanks to the good marketing campaign from Enmasse, Tera can still keep it's gold price to be in the range of $25 USD per 20,000 Tero Gold as predicted by our last month roundup. And the marketing strategy in April was even beyond imagination. The game made a business partner with Celio causing it's able to add the popular "Hello Kitty" into the game. This is not what we see much even from the MMOs market. If this partner thing goes well, we should see more famous cartoon characters tied in the game. Tera should have some more marketing plans in their hand causing its RMT price to be higher in May. The cheapest was on April 11, 2016 which is 20,000 Tera Gold for $22.04 and the most expensive was on April 29, 2016 for $25.98. It was 17.99% different.
