But then again, a Clueless Charlie will take those prices as rock solid in a month or two. It will be the same as with minipets - he got something that's on the list, he checks the list, he might try to get a bit more than the price given, but won't certainly go any lower, even if the 'real' market value dropped in the meantime.
The same thing happened to minipets. Now the minipet sticky has been updated, but until that, lots of pets listed there were overpriced, some quite severely, and were nowhere near to Kamadan's observations. Most of traders and American district players were aware of that, but then again, loads of people from other districts set their prices according to an old PC - only because it was there, it did the pricing minis out for them, and it never mattered it was outdated.

This list has been updated though, so what is the problem? I don't quite understand where you're going with this. I don't have the intention of marking the current prices as being traded now and then letting it slide for 6 months.

The game isn't brand new and we're not gaining new players this late into the expansion (For the most part). With universities and schools picking back up as well, the player base is going to dwindle some and demand will go down. Prices in turn will have to go down if traders want to sell.

There will always be that guy who asks for too much, and there will always be that guy who just wants to get rid of it.

Indeed!

Caveat Emptor anyone?

This price guide is merely that and nothing more.

It is not some religious cannon, nor are the figures meant to be worshiped nor repeated parrot fashion to one and all game wide.

Anyone with common sense understands exactly what a price guide is, and presumably in this day and age most sensible people understand market volatility, those who don't well....

There will always be people trying to flog stuff well beyond what anyone with half a brain will pay, only today I saw some twat offering an EL Olias for 80e, I suspect he will be old and grey before he makes that sale.

This price list is a snap-shot of what the majority of people consider reasonable, I am sure it will be updated, and while some of us may at times question the odd price here and there, I am sure it will (as it seems to do now) be right on the money in most instances.

I applaud Angie for starting this, and am thankful it has been made a sticky, I have found it quite useful as a reference when considering certain weapons I might not normally buy or follow prices closely on.

On balance, a sticky such as this should have happened ages ago, and I for one am glad it is here now.

Oh, and might I add, the formatting is quite appealing, easy to peruse and clearly laid out.

Great job to all concerned.

EDIT

I put up a q10 Curses BDS in Kamadan without asking a price, I had a person try to low-ball for 40e, then the second person offered 70e straight up which I accepted.

I paid 90e for a q9 Fire BDS (seller asked 100e)

I bought a q9 VS for 45e

Bought r10 Fast Casting bds, black and fully modded for 35e. Spammed for hours trying to get more for it. Ended up selling it for 38e. -.-

Bought r9 E-Storage BDS, modded & white, 80e

Bought r12 Fire CC, unmodded, 19k

Bought r9 Restoration CC, unmodded, 10e

Bought r9 Restoration Froggy, unmodded, 38e

Bought r9 Healing Froggy, 20/20, 100e (VERY untypical)..I even told the guy he was mega-underselling it, protested and every time I said this, he lowered the price by 10e. (He started at 120e).. I was shaking by the time it was in my hands.

Sold r9 Resto Froggy & CC 40/40 set (not the same as above), for 200e. I didn't want to sell it and buyer was very persistent, offered 200e for the pair. I didn't want to stand in the way of his happiness.

Replaced them both for 48e together.

Bought r13 Air Froggy for 8e, resold for 20e.
