/Shop Prices Have Updated!The Empire Shop is never meant to intervene with the real player market and we became aware that it was in fact doing so. Therefore, any prices which were deemed to be inhibiting real market growth, were increased to allow for the player market to increase as well.Question and Answer Section:What items were changed?Off the top of my head:Diamonds and anything that used diamonds when crafted, diamond ore, emeralds, emerald ore, lapis lazuli, lapis ore, ink sacs, book and quill, most dyes, and ghast tears. I might be missing one or two, but most other prices stayed the same because there wasn't a need to change them.Why is the Empire Shop so expensive?The Empire Shop items are spawned in by the server for a nominal fee. Therefore, the prices reflect no effort on the player nor removal of items from the generated world. As a result, they are supposed to be much higher in order to be fair to those that do mine/gather their own materials from the world and to not interfere in the natural course of the player market fluctuation.Why is Aikar ruining the economy with inflation?He isn't. Inflation is a natural aspect of economics in a limited scale. Something like a diamond is going to increase in value over time due to the factors of supply and demand. While there may be a large supply of diamonds on the server, diamonds are also expended from the economy through repairs, etc to tools/armor. This and activities like hoarding diamonds or building with diamond blocks drive up demand.Why doesn't Empire Shop have stained glass, stained clay, etc from the 1.7 update?The Empire Shop is designed to not release our current version items in order to allow for the players to set the market for them. We'll add those items with the next update or so.Any other questions? Please ask in the comments or privately message me.
