I hope the new items / proceeds are obtained through monsters or bosses who all have the same chance to kill without having to compete against stronger guilds, otherwise it will be impossible for someone not in these guilds to get the items.
For the benefit of the game economics, the improvements transfer will not be totally for free or totally for reales.
Would the cost of a +11 orange outfit cost the same as a +9 purple? Would it be smarter to put the current equipment on +11? if it is not worth it, it would be better for those who do not have orange equipment +11, wait for the new equipment and start over from 0?
@Edited : About the items in class B, it would be impossible to transfer the enhancement to the new items from the north, but what about the stamps? the chance to get an orange seal in class B is the same as a class A, right?
To players already +11 with orange seals it will be cheaper to transfer both seal and improvement than making a new +11 orange lvl 65 gear, that's the only thing we can know for sure. Now to +9 purple/orange players it's up to them to see if it's better trying +11 orange now and transfer when time comes, or make new gear from scratch. But again, we don't know yet which is better in this case because there's no info of how much it's going to cost to transfer and the mateirals required.
An for your other question: Enya said in the first post you have 3 choices to transfer:
1 - transfer improvement only
2 - transfer seal only
3 - transfer both (clearly more expensive than 1 and 2 )
The old item will be deleted in each case. So choosing 1, 2 or 3 you'll lose the old item, so imo it's better to transfer both.
Things we don't know yet:
Will be possible to transfer improvement/seal between items of different classes? eg. Totem class B to totem class A. Because some seals give more status when the item is Class A.
Just a reminder to what i said above: We'll need to remove any boss/elite cards before transfering seals/imrpovements.
