The High End Scrip Shop, also known as HESS, originated during the August 2015 run of Duskruin as a higher end bloodscrip auction. Over the years, it has grown to offer services and some items through certificates.

General Information

The High End Scrip Shop offers certificates to improve an adventurer's current gear, purchase ores to create weapons or armor from rare materials, or purchase a rare artifact. Prices range from 15k bloodscrip to 500k bloodscrip. The shop itself generally opens 1-2 days after the opening night of each Duskruin run.


The High End Scrip Shop can be found at the northern most portion of the lower ring within Duskruin Arena, marked by the yellow H on the map.

Additional Information


A perky bearded dabbler premiered through the curtain of the High End Scrip Shop at the August 2020 run of Duskruin Arena. The automated item property removal service takes bloodscrip, and costs 5000 bs to remove properties of mechanical value, but only 1000 bs to remove fluff (non-mechanical) properties. The dabbler does not work on items with temporary properties.

There is also a Dabbler at Ebon Gate in Quinton Manse. Look for a diminutive korrigan.

Unrelatedly, the dabbler will buy Treasure Trove raffle tokens for 125 bs.

Big Spin Nights

Starting with the August 2021 run of Duskruin, a new way to offer the higher end, more limited items for sale at the HESS was tested as a means to even out distribution. Anything that had not been sold during this process was re-offered in the HESS afterwards.
