Default Liquidating green items?

Hey there.

So I'm in the "home stretch" on my HoM grind, and all that matters to me is money.

Is there any automated way to notably liquidate green weapons (meaning not standing around fishing for a player buyer?) or are they just merchant fodder?

Thanks in advance

Oh, and same question for skill tomes.

There is no automated trading system in GW. You can make a thread on Guru and see if anyone bites, that way you don't need to stand around in Kamadan all day advertising. That said, I tend to merch the greens I get. Due to them being unmoddable, unless they've got a good set of mods I don't bother with them. The inventory slot is more valuable to me than the 1-2k I could get if I really looked (and I can always throw it on a hero if it's useful but unwanted), as well as the fact that unless I get that 1-2k sale very quickly I could have made more by merching it and farming.

There's a guide in the PC forum about greens; and even if that's out of date the general value guidelines for gold weapons apply here too (so 20/20 wands/offhands are good, +10 vs demons shields are good, some of the more exclusive WoC ones are good, etc).

What, like my shield that thinks it's a dagger, daggers that think they're swords, offhand that thinks it's daggers and scythe that thinks it's a stick?

PC, nao!

Even in the good old days it was hard to get anyone dedicated enough to keep those pricing guides up to date :/

This is a very good point. Many of the greens have little value to anyone because they are common and/or easy to get. Those, you may as well just merch. (Identify them first - that can add some value).
Many other greens are only worth 500-2k gold, but as Marty points out, you can make that much gold by doing quests/missions/dungeons and picking up all your drops, in less time than it takes to stand around Kamadan trying to sell them. (You don't even need to 'farm'.)

Skill Tomes are a bit different. There are some normal tomes - Assassin for example - that aren't worth trying to sell. But some are worth it if you have a bunch of them to sell. Elite tomes are usually worth trying to sell.

Of course, you can always sell stuff through the buy/sell forums or Guru Auctions. Then you don't have to spend your play time standing around trying to sell stuff.

and as far as price check go here's pretty much all the help you'll need: http://argos-soft.net/GwEstimator/

that site records AD1 trade channel and posts it online and using the search engine you can easily find information about pretty much any item

The power traders don't like Argos - apparently there's an awful lot of highballing and wishful thinking in Kamadan

Argos is terrible, it's maniplulated every single day bu both power sellers and normal traders.

It's very unfortunate for those people who are pricing realistically and getting told they are selling to high, the power sellers are the ones using argos to drive the prices down by posting completely unrealistic prices, try trading someone doing this and they say they sold everything already, they never had them to sell at that price.

The high prices are driven by normal traders manipulating argos for 2 days or so to produce a search that brings a price they desire.
