Been trying to sell my Q10 Tactics Draconic Aegis for a couple of days, keep getting people telling me 10e is too much. Are they just trying to lowball, or is this no longer an accurate price? It was price checked for 60-80k+, so I'm assuming it's the former.

sold Demon Fangs r12 for 30k, the highest offer posted for them on my sell thread for a few days (They were listed at reserve/starting bid 20k and buyout 50k from the beginning.)

I've tried off and on since these dropped for a friend last Winter to sell them at 50k buyout and never found anyone interested. I'm told r12 has cooties.

Well short answer is yes and no.

Longer version is that while the figures in this post are based on historical market values of actual sales and are thus much more accurate than the spam on Argos, actually selling an item is a tricky business and can take time. Remember too that these days people are very fussy. Once upon a time you could sell almost any desired skin with higher requirements, these days most of us won't even consider anything not q9 (unless maybe prot bds or crysta etc). Oh and YES... lowballers... galore... always

I sold a q12 Draconic easy as pie for the figure listed here only a few weeks ago, but I must stress that I spoke to buyer after sale, and he told me he had been after one for ages but could never afford one (he only just had the cash to buy it), ie I was in the right place at the right time.

You need to remember that the prices people quote here on guru do not always reflect demand, so something that could be indeed worth 100e, might not find a buyer for months (for example some rare shield with shitty mods).

In other news, bought a q9 Communing CC 9e (paid 19e for my last one which I use on my Rt) which I mentioned a few posts earlier.

Bought a q9 VS 41e

* Can I encourage all of you to keep posting what you are buying/selling things for, so the input helps guide future changes for the OP, I am sure he cannot do it all without our input.

I put up a PC on Amethyst Aegis, q10 tact with a 30 fort and reduce blindness mods. Several replies all quoting it at 10-15k, which seemed nonsense to me. I sold it in less than 30 minutes for 8 ectos in Kamadan (was asking 56k).

I was told it was a common chest drop, and perhaps that is their own experience, though I've never had one drop and it is listed on the wiki as a rare drop. As well, they only drop from the Woe, UW and Slaver's Exile chests....i.e. some of the most difficult chests to pop in the game.

My advice to all is to take the quotes in the PC thread with a great deal of caution. There are thousands of people playing this game and many of them are not privy to common perceptions of price points of the checkers on this forum. Many of the checkers are very informative, knowledgeable and helpful. However, some of them couldn't accurately price an item from the dollar menu at McDonalds.

Difficult my foot... Tommis takes 2 minutes with heroes and a good perma, we salvage q10's all day long for rubies.

I have the Wintergreen things over on the "Greens & Other ..." guide, too. They've been there a couple years now, since we merged the Green PC guide threads by campaign into a single list.

I did not notice you had Wintergreens here until after I sought current PC advice on my spare upon returning to GW after a long break. The PC I got from a few searches and a few trusted friends for the spears in early Nov. 2011 was 200-250e.

Anyway, I posted this on the green thread, but I'll post it here, too.

Dec. 4 - I sold a Wintergreen Spear for 210e, the buyer's counter offer to my 220e asking price. (Ecto has been a little unstable lately, between 7-8k ea., so 1.47-1.68 M plat value.)

The buyer whispered me while I was playing. He did not say one way or another, but I assume he found my IGN searching argos. I had left WTS Wintergreen Spear ads and checked to make sure they were logged.

I just sold an r9 Divine Favor Ancient Moss Staff in game for my asking price of 45k. It had +5 head / 10hct inscription / 20% enchanting wrap attached, so figure 8k value tops for the mods.

Sold r10 Domination Froggy for 90e. Had it posted for 100e and settled for the quick sale.

Also, browsing for updated prices, don't fret.

I keep saying there are no q9 15-28 Dryad's to be had (unless you get scammed with 14-28), very hard to find anyone offering under 90e currently.

Q9 Fire Froggy are very much in demand (have been for more than month of two now), so price should be revised. In fact there was a guy in Kamadan only the only day desperately trying to offer 120e for one

In other news sold q11 Draconic Aegis Command 5e to get rid of it fast

Bought Q11 Illusion BDS for price listed here.
