DragonCoins are a special currency that is at the moment only available if you purchase them with real money, complete a survey, sign up for selected websites/phone services or win a contest at the forums. They can be used to buy incredibly powerful items, second only to the Doom Weapons. What can I purchase?
You can purchase items such as weapons, armor, Quest stuff, and pet items. You can also upgrade up to 10 or more of a maximum of 55 (currently) bag slots at Cysero's Superstore of Savings.
There also is a new feature; The Falconreach Bank. You can purchase extra bank slots, for the same costs as for bag slots. How much is it to upgrade your bag/bank slots?
First 10 slots --> 100 DragonCoins each (1000 DragonCoins Total) Next 5 slots --> 300 DragonCoins each (1500 DragonCoins Total) Last 20 slot --> 500 DragonCoins each (5000 DragonCoins Total)
Artix has hinted in the design notes that DragonCoins will be used to purchase Castles and Guilds in the near future.
How do I get DragonCoins?

Originally, items bought by DragonCoins could not be sold, but on January 31st 2008, items were sell able for the first time. Once you buy a DragonCoin item you will have 24 hours from the time of purchase to return the item to any vendor for 90% of the original cost. After that, the DragonCoin item will have a 25% DragonCoin sell back. This did not apply for stackable items (such as Lady Celestia's "REALLY Special Dragon Chow").On Friday, Feb 1, 2008 the game gave you a 25% refund for any DragonCoin item that you have destroyed between then and May 2007.
