Item:Collapsed Portable Hole
A Collapsed Portable Hole (aka "Portable Hole") is an item that is not immediately useful by itself but can readily be converted into a fifth inventory slot in your backpack by speaking to Ryo Silverbrow once enough Coin Lord favor has been earned. Note that this can only be done once per character, costs an additional for "100,000 gold" (10,000 platinum) and does not last through True Reincarnation. The item is consumed in this process, and the process cannot be reversed.
Multiple Collapsed Portable Holes stack in inventory and bank.
Portable Holes can be acquired in several different ways:
- Can be acquired as random chest loot/quest end reward (starting in quests ~around~ equivalent Level 8).
A Note on Value
A Collapsed Portable Hole has only one use, to give that extra backpack space (once) to a character. Ryo Silverbow will charge 10k pp (plus the Collapsed Portable Hole) to do this - what those spaces are worth in platinum is up to the player.
However, Silverbow will also accept 6 Astral Shards and NOT ask for a portable hole! That is, if you are willing to spend 6 AS, the Collapsed Portable Hole is effectively included in that price. Collapsed Portable Holes are often found on the Shard Exchange for varying amounts, but there is no reason to pay over 5 AS for one there.
Likewise, while selling a Collapsed Portable Hole in the Auction House can often fetch a good price, they rarely sell for over the minimum 3-4 AS on the Shard Exchange.
