Item Price Drops
This week also saw the first drop in prices for a selected number of the patch 2.3 dimension items. Items like the elegantly styled vase, human skull, green grass and puffball mushrooms have had drops in currency and credit prices. This adjustment to prices is likely to continue as the initial rush of purchases slows down and Trion determine a sustainable price point for dimension items. For those who had already purchased these items at the higher prices, my condolences.
This is a very welcome change. Along with a substantial price reduction for the more expensive pre-patch 2.3 items, these changes will help stretch our platinum and credit supplies for the more expensive items. Lets hope we see a few more reductions in price.
This week bought the sad news that Rift Dream Dimensions is no longer operational. Kiwimidget has moved to Rift Scene where she will be continuing to delve into the deeper mysteries of dimensions. Many of the features from Rift Dream Dimensions will be archived at Rift Scene. We wish Kiwimidget the best of luck in her new dimensional journey.
Speaking of the dead, it seems Rift Decorators is also a deceased site as there have been no updates since March. Rift Decorators was the first database on the scene, along with Rift Dimensions, and a major resource at the time. I’d like to thank Starseeker for her work and wish her the best in her journeys.
As one phoenix dies, another one is born (if one can liken databases to a phoenix) and this week saw the rise of Rift Source, a searchable database with handy drop down menus. This database is still under construction and has a few known issues. Welcome Rift Source, one can never have too many databases hanging around.
Newly Discovered Items
I saw the Stonghold Ball Goal Circle on the Greybriar auction house yesterday, it prompted me to look at the Stronghold achievements under Planes. Seems there’s a few dimension items to be found there, including a Stronghold Ball. This is a dimension item but not as we know it. It seems, on use, this item will spawn the skull of a stronghold boss inside a dimension. A skull that, by the flavour text, can be kicked around. Trion have been telling us they have plans for more dimension interaction, is this the first of it? Something tells me there’s a lot of strongholds in my future.
