So, now that we've had the awesome R3 release...I guess I'm left scratching my head at the need for currants...we don't need them to buy houses anymore, and there is currently nothing we can purchase for our houses with currants (was hoping some of the outdoor cultivation items would require currants)...the only current currant sinks seem to be:
2) rare items (or other needed items) on the auctions/in the marketplace
3) party packs
5) tithing icons
After you manage to buy all the baseline tools/items that you need...I'm not sure there are too many other uses for large amounts of currants at this point other than the things mentioned above. So, is there some plan for more uses for currants? Will we be able to exchange currants for iMG at some point (I thought some of our currants were originally supposed to be converted to iMG, but this didn't seem to happen)? Will there ever be more things to buy for currants? Will they eventually be phased out (I don't see this happening completely since we probably need some form of in-game 'currancy')? But what's the point of having currants now? I have over 350K, and I'm at the point of stopping selling things for currants since there really isn't much else to buy right now...guess I'm now turning into a hoarder since I don't see much use in selling what I'm gathering...I really thought we'd see some additional uses for them with all the upgrades - guess I was surprised we didn't have anything to use them on.
ETA: Leveling, tithing icons, and buying needed items (items in italics are the changes since OP).
