    Default The Hanging Garden: Greybriar

    Almost since my first build, I've wanted to try The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World. This is my third try at the gardens (the first was in Faen's Retreat, and the second was in Vengeful Sky), and this time might be the charm. With the laying of the first piece, there was not really any such thing as stopping until the last went into place.

    A gem of the desert, under a moonlit sky: http://s1314.photobucket.com/user/Fe...tml?sort=3&o=4

    The fountains and terraces of the Hanging Gardens, surrounded by lush greenery: http://s1314.photobucket.com/user/Fe...tml?sort=3&o=3

    A simple structure at the height of the tower: http://s1314.photobucket.com/user/Fe...tml?sort=3&o=2

    The Hanging Gardens were so massive that even now, it's more of a cross-section than the full wonder.

    I hope visitors enjoy the peaceful gardens. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Oh Feendish, you do such exquisite work! Pictures look amazing, but I can't wait to stroll through the Hanging Gardens in person!

    Thank you for the positive feedback and visits. I love those builds where you get started and it just flows together and pretty much builds itself, and wish all of them went that way.

    might be the most expensive dimension ever built. But looks good.

    I picked up most of the water effects for 80p each. Pricey, yes. Not as pricey as...nearly all the trees on the Rift store. The Brevanic Terrace pieces were 15-20p each, and I have several of each left over. Maybe in a couple of weeks, they'll come down, and maybe they won't. I dumped nearly all of my plat reserves into the AH, and I still don't feel bad about spending digital money on digital items, and since the player who has them puts up more every day, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one to feel that way. If I were the first on the shard to get a coveted item, I would certainly sell said item for a markup, and I don't consider his/her price increase to be unreasonable.

    Default Another Masterpiece!:)

    I finally got around to visiting last night, and it was just as beautiful as I knew it would be. I don't know how you do it, I just wish my imagination worked more like yours does! The new fountains were just perfect for this build, too!

    Yes, the flowing water item was made just for this
    I enjoyed my visit, it is truly a magnificent build. Love your architecture and the lush flowery burst in your dims. Do I want to know how much it all cost? ouch
    (By the way, one of the pillar tops is missing its yellow kelari lamp, see I paid attention! lol)

    Thank you for noticing that missing lamp, so I can fix it, because I certainly didn't catch it. The person selling the water effects and terrace pieces is now quite well off, most of the rest, I already had, and I completed Blue in the Face so I could buy my own lamps without the markup which in the process gave me the rep to be able to buy my own Kelari columns (I hated EI at 50 because there was nothing for me there but death ), so it didn't really cost as much as it looks like it did. The highest cost, as usual, came in the final upgrade of the dimension itself.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the visit!

    Feendish, next time I visit, I'll bring my tent and I'll stay in your Hanging Garden dim. Beauty like that needs to be taken in slowly, one day at a time!

    Another amazing creation!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
