Title says it.

Even Tera lets you buy outfits without having to spend currency on a maybe box.
I spend a 100 dollars a month on average in Tera for outfits and weapon skins

I won't even touch the cartel boxes. If im buying something I want what Im paying for not some silly gambling game
Was before F2P

Ya and Tera also has those for people that do

You can buy like a non dyable outfit without going through all the boxes, that would work for me

some of us don't like the silly gambling game, they have casino's for that

Fact 1 : I don't buy any random box, and now have 13000 CC piled from monthly fees since the beginning of F2P
Fact 2 : I might be enclined to spend some coins if some of the boxes' content were avaliable to direct purchase, even if it costs more than the actual boxes.

Example :
Box costs 450 CC, and contains multiple items.
A single "average" (silver symbol) item could be purchased directly for 600 CC
A single "rare" (gold symbol) item could be purchased directly for 900 CC.

yup like that the boxes in Tera are 330 each, the outfits by themselves are 880-1048 basically more than buying three boxes

Except that at their rarity, gold items would be sold for 3-5k CC, and then people probably wouldn't buy the boxes OR the items.

It was just an example. Prices could be adapted whether it's a part of an armor, or a stand alone object like a mount, or something trivial like an emote.

Emotes are not trivial, have you seen how much dejarik sells for? You can even still get that one.

why don't you sell the packs unopened and then buy the item off the GTN?

If BWEA thought they could make more money selling CM stuff a la carte, that's what they'd be doing.
