Tinker-acquired locker preps

Postby Incompetent on Fri Oct 26, 2012 1:10 pm

It seems the prep cost of locker items is generally double the price you bought it for in the shop (if it's a shop item). The Tinker buys everything at a discount of 5 gold, so if you use the Tinker to hunt for locker items, your locker preps become cheaper by 10 gold. If the Tinker acquires the item through a Translocation scroll, it doesn't become a free prep but it still gets the Tinker price discount.

Is this supposed to happen? I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere.

Cool catch; it's probably a bug.

Many items do have unusual locker pricing. The default is 2x the shop price, but it varies dramatically.

I replicated this. I'm going to go with "bug" instead of feature too.

What happens to the costs when you exit the game and start it back up again? I'm surprised that locker items have varying cost information - that's actually never stored anywhere for them AFAIK. Backpack items maybe...

Divine interference of the enigmatic Packmaster, maybe?

In all seriousness, I have seen pricing discrepancies in the past (I've seen fine sword at 15, 20, and 30), but I've always attributed them to updates on your end.

I logged out and back in again, and the prices are still low (eg 20 gold for a Crystal Ball prep).

Thanks, this is getting added to the bug list.
