    Default Void Stone prices converted from old currencies [Rift Store]

    Please re-examine the void stone prices for old content available in the rift store.

    For example, the raid rift lure for Bloodfire Incursion costs 60k planarite plus 5,000 void stones now. Before the currency conversion it cost 60k planarite and 900 infinity stones. Such a ratio is totally inconsistent with the effort required to obtain those respective amounts.

    Bear in mind the raid rift lure I mentioned is a required purchase for the Air Saga.

    Another example is Great Hunt rift lures: for tiers 1 through 3 they cost 500 void stones per lure. To complete the first two tiers it now costs 3,000 void stones per tier; 4,000 void stones for the third tier. In the fourth and fifth tier each lure costs 1,600 void stones per lure! So 16,000 void stones for tier 4 and 19,600 void stones for tier 5. Grand total 45,600 void stones. This needs to be lowered.

    I'm sure there are other examples of the price of old content in void stones being too high?

    Storm Legion Raid 1 weapons cost 15/20k Void Stones, and Storm Legion Raid 2 weapons cost 20/30k Void Stones.

    Coruscating Ethereal Shard and Infinity Cauldron costs 14,500 Void Stones.

    50,000 for Great Hunt essences? Why?

    Level 50 raid weapon upgrades cost 12k Void Stones.

    The most hilarious though is that the Master Focus costs 27,500 Void Stones, while Mortiferous' Sigil is 19,200. Both of which cost more Void Stones than the Focus of Nightmares (which does have a 200k Planarite cost, but still).

    That's good to hear. Most things pre-3.0 should really just be a token* cost . No one's using those items or gear for their power anymore. Most are hunting Wardrobe or getting old achievements (in the case of Great Hunt).

    Having old gear cost as much, if not more, than current gear is just silly.

    I understand a competitive cost for items like Coruscating Ethereal Shard that still have a place in the market, but the 14,500 it's at now is just way, way too high.

    *using token as an adjective
