The sky projectors are interactive dimension items that change the sky of a dimension. They are tucked away behind a notoriety grind for the Lycini and a PvP grind for favor. Mercenary Hudson will sell the Conquest sky projector for 125k favor . Chiela Forto the planar dimension goods vendor (located on the canals) sells the air, earth, sky, fire, life and death sky projectors for 5k planarite but only on reaching glorified with the Lycini.
The Conquest sky projector is the flashiest of the projectors. It changes the sky to black with runes and rains down little green motes upon your dimension.
Not many of us have had a chance to play with the sky projectors yet, exception being the Conquest projector (lots of dimensioning PvPers?) My mate, Kayson, achieved glorified with the Lycini recently (grats on your server first, Kay!) and was kind enough to lash out with the planarite so I could play with the six elemental projectors. The elemental sky projectors do two things – they change the colour, texture and direction of the clouds in the sky and they place a haze or fog in the air and tint objects toward the color of the element. The haze has the effect of making distance views look misty and dimmer. The haze can also enhance the effect of color in translucent objects like the blue crystal mass. The death sky enhances the purple in the crystal mass while the air sky enhances the blue and the life sky enhances the green. Here’s a listing of each effect.
- Air – fast north moving grey clouds and a light misty haze.
- Earth – dirty brown grey clouds moving fast to the north west and a brownish haze.
- Life – slow northeast grey clouds with a light green mist.
- Death – purple clouds with black hole sucking the clouds inwards and a purple haze.
- Fire – slowly moving red cloud and red haze.
- Water – slow moving grey clouds moving west to east and a grey haze.

Which sky projector do you have your heart set on. Will you make the elemental or Conquest projector your first sky purchase?
Update 18/8/2013: Kitasia has made this video showing the different sky projectors, almost as good as trying before you buy.
