    Ok this is gonna sound dumb, and noone is really gonna like it.

    We need to make Diamonds rare again.

    I think there needs to be a LIMITED TIME (two weeks?) villager at the shops that buys Diamonds for 9/10 grass.

    This will do two things

    1. Liquidate all the diamonds making them rare again
    2. Resets the Price of Diamonds to a more reasonable amount.


    Ok bring on the Hate

    You have a valid point. We do need more incentives to actually spend the items we make to make them more valuable.
    The issue is that the reason diamonds are seen as not valuable was because of how their value was on classic. Even in the first few days of new skyblock diamonds were like nothing. Iron was more sought after.
    Your suggestion works well as an economy suggestion since on org people are making tonnes of money but there isn’t anything to spend it on.
    Neutral for skyblock tho.

    If you want to change the value of a "rare" it needs to be rare in the first place. Diamonds are obtained through so many different ways and in such large quantities so removing a decent amount of them like this suggestion proposes will only reduce the amount backed up rather than their overall value. Once the buying period is over they will just stack back up again.
    If you really want to make them rarer and increase their value there needs to be more uses and more outflows from that section of the economy. Some ways this could be done are (similar to what you said) a CONSTANT shop where you can buy items with your diamonds, promote the use/crafting of items that use diamonds such as armor or even just reduce the amount of diamonds players receive through voting/kits/crates.

    The value of something is as what people pay for it

    If I sell diamond for 10 grass and every one starts jumping on the band wagon diamonds are now worth 10 Dias I just don’t think it would be the best way neutral

    This would make diamonds overpriced at /warp grass, there are shops who are desperate for grass.

    Best way to increase the diamond value is to make items that are only obtainable by spending diamonds.

    Neutral. I do like the idea of this, especially as grass is quite sought after - it would provide an easier way for diamonds to be spent without the hassle of finding an in-stock shop and someone not out to scam.

    Problem is though, server shops are meant to encourage trade between players, with a lower price than the going rate - so it’s a little contradictory.

    Neutral,

    Even if this was accomplished, you would still run into the same issue as before with shops trying to "one-up" each other for lower prices which will take the diamonds in circulation, and continue to lower their price again.

    No support because nobody uses the in-game shop. Everyone trades among themselves. Therefore, this would do nothing.

    First, I don't think changing the villagers would do anything. If at all the amount of diamonds in circulation has to be reduced because now players are literally charging the diamonds cheap. One day we're gonna have diamonds that are as worth as the same value of iron right now

    i mean its a good idea im not gonna lie but people might just keep them but i support this because diamond prices are soon going to be 1:1 and thats just not very cool back in classic they were like 40 grass per dia and that was just fine and actually had value i dont know about you guys but i want that back
