200-250e is the correct price. People just lowball so they can buy low and sell high.

^^ Swingline is right (as usual)

Ignore lowballers in Spamadan (which is most so called "power traders" are anyway), just be patient and it will sell.

Bought a q9 Dom Froggy 174e +7 Rubies

I am thinking 200-250e might need to be revised, there have been a few selling trying to sell for 200e last few days, and struggling to get much interest.

Guy I bought off had very little response apart fro the usual low-ballers.

I am guessing 180-200e range could be more in keeping with current market offers and actual sales, apart from the usual trade outside mu range.

edit: Bought q9 Communing Froggy 20e

Topaz Scepters


tl;dr? version

Nov 3: sold r9 ES (earth dmg) Topaz Scepter for 15k FAST!!
Nov 7: sold r9 Dom Topaz Scepter for 30e FAST!!
Nov 7: sold r10 Spwn (fire dmg) Topaz Scepter for 10k FAST!!
... all via a fansite auction system.

Luny-book version

I thought this might be worth posting here.

I recently just this past week or so got back to trading after having been gone since late Winter/early Spring 2011. Back then, my understanding of Topaz Scepter market was as follows. There was not a big market/demand for them at all, but it was also not something one saw a lot of offered for sale. So it was one of those things that wound up being a royal pain trying to sell or buy. The "PC" I had for them went like ...
  • r9 Dom could get ~50-100k (maybe up to 200k, although I never found those buyers) if you found someone shopping for their spoiled Mesmer who had already realized how few of these were around to buy.
  • r9 in other than Dom (which means DF, ES, SR, or SP only) could get ~10-20k if you found someone shopping for their spoiled <other> who had already realized how few of these were around to buy. It was even harder to find buyers for these in my experience.
  • r>9 versions for everything except Dom seemed to be nearly "merchfood" for the chance one had of finding a buyer. The higher req Dom versions were also pretty hard but more often likely to sell for at least something, eventually.

The last experience I had with these before my break was trying to sell an r9 ES topaz for 15kish buyout in game and on a fansite auction system for weeks without any interest, not even anyone interested in haggling for it that I recall.


I came back and got to trading. I started off listing the stuff I had leftover in my for-sale pile without checking current PC for these at all. On Nov. 3, 2011 I listed the r9 ES mentioned above for the same old 15k b/o on the fansite auction system. Someone bought it out within a few minutes of me posting it, no kidding! They picked it up in game right away.

That's when I saw this new (to me) PC sticky and went and then and then cautiously So, after some browsing my personal collections of way more stuff than I really need or use, I decided I could sell off all but one of my Topaz Scepters. I opted to keep my necro's SR version and see about selling the other two.

I asked a couple friends in game if they knew what was going on with the prices. Each told me their observations made the numbers for r9 dom here seem unrealistically high. (In general cases ... one of these friends is someone whose PC opinions are usually lower than my own; the other's PC opinions are usually higher or about the same as my own. Both are fine and fun folks with whom I enjoy discussing gear and trading and whose opinions and insight I truly value even if we don't always agree.) So I figured, let's just see!

Yesterday, I listed the r9 Dom and the r10 Spawning on the same fansite auction system as b/o only but with comments inviting anyone who wanted to negotiate the prices to get in touch. I listed the r9 dom for 210k (30e) b/o, and it sold within minutes to the same player from a few days before who took my ES version. I listed the r10 spawning for 10k b/o, and it took a long time to sell ... like two whole hours or something ... to a different player.

What insight I can offer about the buyers:

At this fansite, I have ~100 total transactions.

The player who snapped up both my r9 ES for 15k b/o and my r9 dom for 30e b/o has about ~800 with fine looking feedback. I hadn't had occasion to meet or chat with him much before. Speaking with him in game, he told me he was planning to keep the r9 dom for his own Mesmer and had been on the lookout for these topazes. Given the context of our discussion I have no reason to believe he didn't mean it (I thanked him and told him I hoped he enjoyed it or made killer resale profits before he told me he was keeping it.)

The player who took the r10 spawning 10k b/o is someone with over 2000 transactions and great feedback there. We'd met before and traded many things back before I went MIA. He seems a perfectly reasonable, easygoing fellow. From chatting with him in the past, I have the impression he generally finds my PC opinions (at least on buyouts) on the high side. I don't know if he plans to use or flip the one he bought from me, but in the past he seemed to be mostly interested in keeping/collecting things (at least those he bought from me.)



Conclusion?

I'm amazed still, but my very small sample here makes me less at the listed prices for Topaz Scepters.


I hope anyone who reads this finds it helpful! If you doubt me (accuracy of my memory, experience, honesty, sincerity, etc.) that's up to you. I post this to help if it's wanted, nothing more.



Cheers & happy hunting to you all!
