Have you ever found yourself weighing in on whether to use your money to buy Pearls or something else? If your answer is a no then bravo to you, but if you're like the rest of us, then here are my TOP 5: Pearl Saving Tips to maximize your purchasing power.
1. Convert Acoins in Bulk
Hear me out. You might think it's counter productive for a PEARL SAVING tip to ask you to convert the most Acoins into Pearls, but it actually makes a lot of sense. If you buy pearls every other month, on average converting 640 Acoins to 640 Pearls you get a +30 on each x 5 that's +150 Bonus Pearls. But, if you convert the whole 3200 Acoins to 3200 Pearls, you get a bonus of +320 Pearls! That's more than double the bonus.
2. Buy Discounted Items/Utilize DC Coupons
Discounted items are almost always available in the Pearl shop. Once you have your 3520 Pearls (see #1), you'll be able to maximize your purchasing power even more. Discounts normally range from 20% off to a whooping 50% off. Patience is a virtue, and if you wait long enough that coveted Pet or Outfit might be on sale soon, or part of a bundle. DC (Discount Coupons), are also available from time to time, and they stack with other discounts.
NOTE: Discount Coupons disappear from Invetory after 3 days and expire from Pearl Shop after 7 days. Make sure to use them before that happens.
3. Buy Item Bundles
Other than Discounted items, Item Bundles is another way to make the most out of your hard earned Pearls (sometimes Bundles are also Discounted, YAS!). Bundles range from Pets, Outfits, Mounts, and even the Tent sometimes comes with a Trade/Storage Maid/Butler. Also, there are item bundles that are not obvious. The New Angelic and Demonic Queen costume is regularly priced at 500 Pearls, but it comes with a free Mervs and Mervs DC.
4. Priority Spending
Now this is 1 tip I have to admit I realized after almost 1 year in the game. I like playing dress up on my character, and I am proud to say I currently own 15 outfits that I can mix and match. But I bought those before I bought pets (NO-WAR: PET GUIDE), which, if I have than the other way around, could have gotten me more Silver earlier in the game. Im not saying don't buy outfits (PLEASE BUY AT YOUR HEARTS CONTENT!) But prioritize your spending.
5. Minimize Gambling
This also goes for random loot boxes. Do not buy them expecting to get 1 (or the most expensive) of the items included in the box, RNG is real. Buy them if you have spare Pearls, with the mentality that you will get the smallest valued item inside the box (mainly to avoid disappointment).
This is a great guide.
I agree, especially tip 4 and 5, one must always prioritize their spending and to keep away (well, minimize it at least) from the "loot boxes."
Keep up the great work, Aura!
Thank you Ibarra!
pets>weight>tent>inventory or maids before any gambling or cosmetics if you're talking about necesseties.

Thank you ShTy!
With all the new items in the Pearl Shop, are you fully maximizing your pearl purchases? I'd like to know!
Horns for Kuno, gamble 500 pearls. Thats LIFE! @Tepess did the same! GAMBLED ALL AND LOST! HAHAHA
Always keep in mind #4 on this guide. Sorry about your pearls.
Best guide so far on this topic :D
Thanks Daigorn! With all the new stuff coming out in the Pearl Market, is everyone fully utilizing their Pearls?
What items has everyone bought so far? (I have to admit I've been buying most of the new outfits as they are limited)
very nice guide you have here!
i'm about to buy Acoin soon, my goal is having 5 pets with tier 3.
Hi Ikeda! Glad to know this was helpful. You can also check my guide NO-WAR: PETS before you make your purchase.
NEW ITEMS in the Pearl Shop! What purchases have you made so far? Or did you choose to save your Pearls for future use? Smart!
Does anyone have a suggestion on what kind of items they'd like to see in the Pearl Shop? What would you buy without thinking twice?
Yes, something a good friend of mine would like, too bad we can't gift them no more. I would have asked you to gift me, you won't say NO, would you??? Presents to others are emotional decisions, no???
I am not aware if there's any news on when we will get the gifting back. Hope it's sooner rather than later.
I remember last event that they alway say "SCAM BOX" I don't know how they understood the gamble. Good tip.
Hi Meister. There's definitely a chance for get the better items. But better is subjective. For example last Halloween, they came out with the box with 999 Pearls and Bloody Outfit etc. I didn't buy it until right before maintenance, I would get 1 and open, if it doesn't have what I was looking for (Bloody Outfit), then that's the only time I'd get another box with a maximun risk of 5 boxes. I got 1 ghost pet and 2 broom pets on my first 3 tries, finally got the Bloody Outfit on the 4th box. The 999 Pearls is definitely much better, but I really wanted that dress since it wont be available until after year. For me, it's all about perspective.
