    That's really great news :)

    May be, I missed something, but the prices in Crown Shop are still at former 100%, not as expected 70%.
    @Elgarion, when will the permanent price reduction of 30% happen?



    And I wanted to remind you again about the pricing of houses.

    The Shogun Town Home (back in Shop - Vault Edition) is still more expensive than any other town sized house, although it is a heritage item [This means, to transfer it between players it has to be packed for another amount of 20% Crowns from shop price ... (= 3.200, makes 19.200 Crowns ...)]

    The Shogun Town Home is in the price range of CITY TOWN HOUSES (also is the Obsidian Tower Town Water Home - but this one is at least NON Heritage marked!)

    This makes no sense :(

    Row house prices have been adjusted fairly (again: thank you!).

    What about the town houses? They also should be adjusted.

    Thanks for checking out @Elgarion :)

    The deed price reductions, if they haven't already, will patch in closer to the 600PC date, probably with R81.

    I know what you mean about aberrant Vault prices. That's why I went into the store again on Wednesday and did another pass at normalization. This time, I updated 50 vault items. You'll see a good handful of those homes you're talking about reduced in price. Those changes will appear in R81, but of course, you'd also have to wait for them to appear on the vault again to notice it ;)

    Please don't forget to place tax free POT lot deeds at ludicrous prices in our Vault inventory, because there are still a few of we ludicrous shoppers around o_O who remember the word "Bundle" ;)
    A sale of more Portalarium stock wouldn't be out of the question either aye?

    ah, you don't need to get those from the vault. buy a taxed pot deed, then once it's in your inventory right click it and upgrade it for crowns. these numbers are out of date, but here's the original info.

    Thank you @Elgarion.
    Seems, I am out of luck a second time ;)
    I hope, the Shogun Town Home was one of the 50 and I hope, it comes back somedays ...

    Upgrading Lot Deeds with Crowns: Lot Deeds can now be upgraded with Crowns by right-clicking on a deed and choosing to “Upgrade item…” Note this only allows upgrading of lot size within a deed type, not conversion of one lot deed type to another (i.e. you cannot use this function to convert a taxed lot deed to tax free).

    That upgrades the size of the lot, but not it's taxable status?
    In checking my own deeds (all tax free), it doesn't seem an unreasonable upgrade cost for each for the different sizes upgraded.
    I don't own any taxable lot deeds, so I was unable to check if taxable lots can be upgraded to tax-free.

    You can upgrade lot deeds to larger sizes, place anywhere and tax-free status with the following exceptions:
    • Water lot deeds cannot be made tax-free.
    • Taxable keep and castle deeds cannot be made tax-free (unless you downgrade the size to city).
    • Tax-free city deeds cannot be upgraded to keep or castle (unless you make them taxable).

    That ain't right. I upgraded a row lot to tax-free.

    I think I did, anyway. I don't know else I got a tax free row deed.

    As most things I find in SOTA plans, is that a player like myself may need a lawyer to explain it all to me. It's a shame we can't place all that information within our COTO shop's Deed's "for sale signs" .
    Just sayin' maybe such info could be placed on it's own page within the COTO store's property section?

    I agree unless you watch every stream and keep a close eye on twitter a lot of these changes will sneak in past the average player without them knowing.

    no no no. store descriptions with a lot of text end up too small to read, it scales it down to fit the box.
