cool. i like it when they simplify things. I hope they get rid of junk items next – just make regular, white, blue, etc. items vendor for more.

Adjusting the vendor price is kind of a weird solution. They’d probably be better off raising the value of the relevant salvaged materials

Pros: saves a lot of space
Cons: does nothing to sort out my collection of boosters almost three years old, bag of boosters MF recipe likely gone for easy dailies, possibly no more stacking every xp boost for easy levelling at night, as they’re all consolidated into one booster that gives nowhere near as much.


nu butterflywing backpack wats wrung wid anet for holding dat and da rest of items dat shud be out now in gem sturrrrr
