    Unhappy I miss cheap holes...

    What happened to the days when you could go to the AH and grab a collapsed portable hole for 50k? What's going on with this 180k plus business? I know you can get one with Argo favor, but sometimes I do get the coin lord favor before I am ready to tackle those quests.

    Probably has more to do with people TR'ng constantly and deciding they need the extra pack space for a 1 to 20 run...

    50k?

    I remember when you could get one on Cannith for 30k {on the AH}!

    Now they've leaped up in price - 180K is more than the lowest price on Cannith's AH atm for a Flawless Sib!

    Meaning - When you get your Argo Favour - Get the Hole! {The Sib is NOT worth it!}

    Sigh, it is a sad thing when a flawless sib is cheaper than a hole...

    Well, I do have a stack of them on a mule some place (Yes, they stack!) However, I have not pulled one from a chest for quite a long time. The AH is based upon supply and demand. A stealth nerf to the drop rate?

    For my little sorkie, he didn't grab his 5th inv space on his first life so he had one when he got the coin lord favor at level 6.

    And this is why I always take the portable hole from the argo favor, so that my next life has it stashed all ready and I don't have to spend a crazy amount of plat on one. : )

    Same on Tland. But I haven't seen one drop as loot in at least a year.

    It is pretty odd that when you couldn't get a hole from Agent Favor you could pick one up for 20-40k somewhere and now that you can get one every life, they are worth many times their original value.

    I have to agree that I have seen it drop less so than before, although it never dropped a whole ton to begin with. I get more hair dyes now though... that's something I guess :P

    Damn inflation! Or maybe it was just supply and demand?

    I just got one on an "Overgrowth" normal run. Was so surprised I did a double-take (should have taken a screen shot). The first one I have seen in over a year.

    Gianthold seems to be the best area for Portable holes, I know on Sarlona if I see in General chat someone needs one i'll mail it out if I have some (with 23 alts I tend to always have some).

    Sorry OP the title of your thread made me giggle though lol yes mind is in gutter

    Frankly I never see them drop anymore. Often times the only one I get is from Argo favor. About a year ago I had 6 or so on a character, but used them all up on TRs. They definateliy don't seem to drop as much anymore.

    I noticed they were getting a much more expensive on the AH on T-land.
    Seemed odd to me as I feel they upped the drop rate, I've seen them drop a few time in the past couple months.

    Heck I pulled one out of a smashed coffin breakable in the orchard a couple weeks back.
    Last night I was lamenting a no twink toon of mine needing space that had the favor but no CPH. Did a favor clean up of depths and got one in my rewards list.
    Move along , Nothing to see here
