Gilded Fossil Guide: Best use crafting

Effect: Item is overvalued by vendors

This fossil adds an implicit mod with the description Item sells for much more to vendors, which does not overwrite the item’s current implicit. The actual mod is chosen from a selection of random implicit mods that adds various currency items to the vendor price.

The result is RNG. The actual mods rolled on your item have no effect whatsoever. You could have a level 1 driftwood wand with 10 spell damage/mana on kill that sells for Mirror Shards.

Note: Using a Fractured Fossil Fractured Fossil to mirror an item with the “Item sells for much more to vendors” implicit modifier now generates a new vendor sell price on the Mirrored copy.
