[Suggestion] Item to extract used auras

    do you have a character that you don't play anymore (for whatever reason) but has a valuable aura attached to it you would like to use on another one?!
    I would like to suggest a Marketplace item that would allow us to extract one aura on use and being able to transfer it to another char.

    Price you ask? Have it cost 500 Marketplace Cash / DayBreak Cash maybe?!

    Thanks for reading,

    Well if it doesn't include trading them with other people, then I'm all for it.

    Might be better just to include this functionality with style unlocking since the general idea would be to "transfer" a style to another character and I doubt such an item would be free in terms of Marketplace Cash. Since style unlocking is coming at some point, and this kind of item would likely take time due it not being priority, I'd just make auras in that system just like regular styles would be.

    Account Bound is always an option to keep it off trade.

    Style unlocking is coming so there won't really be a point in this unless you want to pull it off to sell it (which I don't see a problem with).

    Style unlocking doesn't include auras as they aren't style pieces.

    Actually you don't know this.

    When the devs last spoke about it Mepps said he "thought" it would be covered but he wasn't quite sure (due to the fact that they are still working on the way the the system is going to work) so it was at least being thought of.

    Until we know all the facts, no one can say how it will work.

    well it's in their best monetary interest to not, they can make more money from keeping them separate as opposed to unlocking. Also it doesn't change the fact that they aren't style pieces anyway and aren't locked behind content.

    naw if said item was made it'd have to be around the 1000-1500 MC/DBC range b/c your talking about un-using a item to sell or reuse on another character.

    Only way I can see it going for less that those prices is if you un-use auras is its not tradable to other ppl but can be placed in shared bank.

    if they arent style pieces why they show up in style tab? o_O

    I think you're overthinking the whole style unlocking thing.

    For the record the materials aren't "styles" (at least according to your viewpoint about how your defining auras) and Mepps even mentioned those might be part of the style unlocking thing as well.

    I also don't see how you can argue this would "lower" their monetary sales. When people generally try to get special auras via the booster bundle they generally try to get one of the ultimate auras... that wouldn't change... So you would still have people trying to buy hand over fist to try to get whatever the special one is. I also don't know many people who buy booster bundles for the chance to get multiple copies of the ultimate one.

    You than have to factor in we don't know how style unlocking is going to work (we can all argue the point that the easiest way is probably replay badges, it's what I would bet money on, but we don't have any clue without more info) but we know some type of "paying" is going to be involved and we don't know what the cost associated with that would be. Without all these factors I can't see how anyone could argue that it would not be lucrative.

    Nobody knows for sure if they are included or not.

    Not a half bad idea, but they need to put something in place that would make them account bound after being extracted, because then what would keep me from extracting and selling my OG Plasmic for $350million+
