    Default Dim Item Expansion Costs, comparison

    I'm trying to decide which key to go with for the current contest, and I am unclear about the comparative cost of reaching 2,000 items. Would it be cheaper to buy all 5 expansions on (for example) Anywhere to reach it's max of 2,000, or buy 4 expansions on Mathosian Cascades to reach (presumably) about 2,000 (it's max would be 2,520)?

    I don't think I've paid lvl 5 yet on a dimension, so I'm unclear about the pricing structure from one to the next.

    (too bad we can't buy expansions using AFKinity points, since mine are all just hanging there due to indecision about buying Atia vs a variety of poles/lures)

    Anywhere (or any 2k limit dimension) T1-T4 = 300 plat
    T4-T5 = 3875 plat or 1453 credits (w/patron)

    Mathosian Cascades (or any 2520) T1-T4 (1260 items@T4) = 900 plat
    T4-T5 4800 plat or 1800 credits

    Here is a full cost listing by dimension size.

    Anywhere
    T2 = 30
    T3 = 90
    T4 = 180
    T5 = 3875
    Total = 4175 plat

    Mathosian cascades
    T2 = 90
    T3 = 270
    T4 = 540............The expansion to T4 brings you to 1260 items
    T5 = 4800
    Total = 5700 plat

    And people say raiding's expensive

    Indeed. Even with the price of REX being so high, it's still cheaper plat wise to buy the REX, then use the credit upgrade option, for those 2520 dimensions, at any rate (on NA, probably not for EU). For the 2K limits, straight plat would probably be the better option.

    At least the keys themselves are cheap, thanks to minions, so there's not so much that sticker shock of buying the key as well (when I bought my first Infinity Gate for 900p, I nearly had a stroke).

    Thank you so much! I knew there was a list somewhere and didn't check ALL my resources....i.e., got sucked into all the pretty pictures of new items on dimensionaddicts.com and got distracted.

    I had kind of forgotten about the credit option.

    That's one of the reasons why I took a dim that's alrdy been upgraded to 945 so that I at least have something to start off.

    I always use credits for upgrades, it's definitely cheaper even on early tiers (given that I usually have a few hundred credits on me for things like this, and then I can always buy credits\REX for t5 upgrade once I need it).
