First off, it seems my brain isn’t working properly at the moment and I’ve misread the patch notes. It’s not a new dimension being released but a new dimension item, the Sagespire Tower, complete with working elevator. I’m a bit disappointed ’cause I’d love to have the Sagespire Tower area in Scarswood as a dimension. Still the Sagespire Tower building is awesome sauce. There are limitations to a working elevator so the tower does not re-size, a loss I’m willing to accept for a greater gain. It also has the most amazing textures on both the interior and exterior wall. This is going to be a popular building.
Three Springs dimension and the Mossy Village Kit are being released on Wednesday (straight from Elrar’s fingers). They’re in the shop but not available for purchase until the 14th of August. This means the mossy buildings are staying in game for those who want to start building with them. It’s an odd way to introduce the new goodies, a test of our patience. All I can say is ‘Roll on Wednesday’ , there’s a lot of eager Three Springs buyers out there.
Jete’s Bouncemaster 5000, also released with this patch, is a curious oddity. It is NOT a dimension item. It can not be placed in dimensions but is classified as a bauble, a toy that sits in the bags and can be used to jump around dimensions on a one second cooldown. In this regard it is like the stronghold ball available from the Stronghold Annihilation achievement. When the stronghold ball is used, it places a ball that can be kicked around a dimension for 5 minutes. Both the Bouncemaster and ball are dimension toys, they are both on use items that can only be used in dimensions.
This is a exciting new direction for dimensions. We’ve been asking for more interactivity and Trion are delivering as asked. With the hints of PVP dimension items, it looks like there will be more reason than ever to play in dimensions.
