The only way I see it being inappropriate to list here is if you don't leave some kind of warning like "Some players sell gold drops before identifying them to people seeking Wisdom title points. If the unid item in question is likely to be valuable after identification, this may not be an accurate practice or price."

So many players with very little experience trading refer to these Guru guide thread OPs. I'd hate to see no warning left for them at all that most people sell only what's likely to be "merchfood" without id'ing it first.

I've seen cases where people sell certain types of unid golds for different rates, but I haven't seen enough examples to have any kind of feel for those prices in general.



Oh, and thanks for the sticky Peachie! Here's hoping it works as intended!

I've just noticed this ...

Hi everyone,

Given the feedback we've received from players about Halloween Festival Hats (notably from those unable to get them due to general power failures), we've decided to offer another opportunity to get the hats. We're aiming to spawn a Halloween Festival Hat Giver in game next week, probably in Lion's Arch and Kamadan, for a week and asking for Halloween items. These details are not final yet but we wanted to give you a heads up and will keep you informed about the details as we get them.
... which might result in some ToT market variations we would not otherwise expect (including advance speculation beforehand!!) starting ... whenever those "in the know" first heard about this, I'm still new to this issue ... and ending, I suppose, when the new NPC in question is taken away.



Reading that I thought ...
- "Wow, there must be a sudden surge in spam to buy ToTs all of a sudden and a lot of other people wondering what the heck is going on?"
- "This could make some weird entries in our efforts to get this cons PC guide OP updated. I should mention it if no one else has."
- "Oh, hmm, if I spell it out on THIS thread here and now it might lead to even more speculation and market oddness. I'm not sure if that's right, as I consider my own perspectives on right and wrong."
- "Well, it will affect the market in some way with or without me explaining it here. And, in general terms, my ideas about right vs. wrong tend to favor the value of making information available to those who care to find it."

So that's why I decided to post this here.

If you think I am encouraging "powertrading," I can see the argument. My only response is that I did consider that aspect and chose it as the lesser of two evils. (I do not consider such speculation in the ToT or any other market as wrongdoing at all, far from it. I know some players have different opinions on the matter.)

If you think posting it here will only make the sudden market conditions crazier and/or less fair, I would respond that more players knowing about this sooner would tend to LOWER the average player's possible return on speculation-trading, not RAISE it.

If you think I'm a party-pooping, loudmouth, no-fun, spoilsport, then I would respond ... on average ... Ooops! But do take heart ... over the years I've had many folks assure me that no one reads the stickies anyway. So I can post it here, and it'll be a nice, safe secret forever.


I do not endorse nor recommend anyone who reads this do anything in particular with their pixels. I am posting information I think may be very relevant and helpful to the cause of making this guide OP useful to us all in the long term.


EDIT - Nov. 10 ~8pm GMT
This was posted a few minutes ago.

Since Stéphane didn't specify *which* items the collector would be accepting, I'm not sure that any speculating would be worth it. It might be ToT's, it might be Transmogrifier tonics, it might be Phantasmal Tonics (a quest reward, rather than from ToT's).

Regardless, I think that there's so much Halloween stuff out there that we likely won't see much of a spike in prices. Not to mention the fact that most of the people who really wanted the hats probably got them during the finale.

You stress too much, Luny.

Also, anyone have any idea why someone would pay 5k for one of these parcels? Gambling for Diessa Chalices and Golden Rin Relics (which would be the most valuable items they produce) wouldn't seem to be worth it, since you have a much higher chance of getting a perfect salvage kit or a handful of summoning stones. Unlike royal gifts or gifts of the traveler, the parcels don't contain a high-reward item like a mini to offset the risk involved when speculating.

I don't get it.

Well, I read that and figured there would be a shift due to speculation and then, depending on what ANet actually does, another shift.

The above isn't stress! It's just my normal, everyday psychological disorders showing like always.

But now that you and I have different predictions, I'm more interested in what happens. Care to make a friendly wager?

Interesting analysis for sure and definitely worth noting here. I've not traded in the gifts myself, so I can suggest that perhaps it's a situation with people not having done the math and just using 5k as standard for gifts like those? Or a case of someone trying to collect up a whole stack and dealing with far more limited supply available for sale than GotT?




In other news, I was watching this thread and thought it worth noting here when seeing it is closed now.
That looks like the OP was selling 622 rabbit/2010 lunar fortunes to the high bidder. They appear to have wound up selling for the high bid of 90e the other day. Ecto, when I checked the trader just now is at 7k/9k, so figure 1e~8k for this. So that means it's, if I did the math right,

1.16k per rabbit/2010 lunar fortune and ~290k per stack (~36e at 8k/e, ~41e at 7k/e)

While FAR from experienced in the lunar fortune market I am told that the fortunes from older years sell for more. I assume that's due to the older cele pets (acquired as a by-product of using these things for cons) being worth more than the newer ones, as after reading up on Wiki I'm no longer under the impression that the +1att effect stacks with +1att effects from other years' fortunes.

A friend of mine sold a stack of Celestial stones for 1k/ea yesterday. I assume the higher price has to do with the summons having a full skill bar with an elite (unlike most other stones).

In case anyone is curious, the other stones which have a summon with a full bar and elite skill are Ghastly, Zaishen (Champion of Balthazar, Guild Lord, and Avatar of Balthazar summons only), and Mysterious (Saltspray Dragon, Smoke Phantom, and White Rabbit summons only).

So even if it weren't for the silly "show stones" thing for UWSC's, Ghastly stones would still probably be worth more than average. Aside from having a full bar and an elite, they have a pretty decent ESurge mesmer build.

Edit:
Just found this on the wiki, which indicates that Celestial Stone summons don't do very much damage. Of course, that doesn't take into account such things as interrupts, de-buffs, heals, etc. Still interesting though.

REZ Scrolls go between 1.75 - 2.5k. Mostly at 2k.

I farm plants and have sold through several stacks of rezs over the last few months at 2-2.5k. Again mostly at 2k ea.

Another question for the panel ...

Of the following, which PC guide thread (this one or the "Greens/other") would you say the following are best suited to?
  • Stuff that stacks and gives special armor parts in EotN (all of it is currently listed on the green thread:)
  • Kath Hammers - so often bought and sold as, effectively, Survivor title points. also currently on the green thread.
  • War Supplies - (I have them, along with Oppressor's Weapons on the green thread already. I'd guess they're more suitable on the green thread for the relationship, but they're also used for Royal Gifts, right? So maybe it makes sense to list them here instead?)
  • DoA gemstones, Coffers of Whispers, and Armbraces - (I have them along with Tormented weapons on the green thread already. I would guess either moving gemstones, coffers, and Armbraces here together or leaving them all on the green list is most appropriate. I would not object to keeping Tormented Weapons on the green thread and moving the gems, coffers and arms over here.)
  • Encrypted Charr Battle Plans - (on the green thread now, but may make more sense here?)
  • Deeprunner's Map Sets - (on the green thread now, but may make more sense here?)
  • The now-tradable Zaishen Coins - (not on the green list yet either, although some rewards like Equipment Packs are there.)

I'm not terribly particular about which gets listed where, but it would be nice to avoid listing them in two places! I'm hoping to get the green OP updated pretty soon, too, so maybe we can do this all in ~cooperation?

Drake Kabob Stacks sell for 30-35 e

http://www.guildwarsguru.com/forum/w...t10493965.html
http://www.guildwarsguru.com/forum/c...t10497487.html


Kath hammers would make sense to me seeing as they go towards survivor, glacial etc don't imo. DoA stuff; CoW while can be openned it's more a means to an end towards an armbrace? unlike Royal Gifts which are the end product, so i'm not sure if it has a place here.

As I see it, the only things that should be listed on the Consumables Guide are actual consumables (ie, something you consume to provide an effect or gift-type items which are consumed when clicked). Collector items, unid'ed golds, trade-able quest items, etc don't meet the criteria.

If the thread instead becomes "A-bunch-of-random-crap-that-players-sometimes-find-valuable-for-various-reasons-and-trade-for-gold" then I think it becomes less useful. And more cluttered.

I added Coffers of Whispers because they're a consumable, differing from Traveler gifts (for instance) only in the items they produce. The fact that they're connected with torment gems and armbraces is just a coincidence, kinda like Traveler gifts are (this week) connected with copper shillings.

I'll add War Supplies though - they double as a consumable and a collector item, so I think they're fine.

Edit:
I'd apparently already added War Supplies under "Other Consumables"

Ok, well I'll check OP here when I get to work on green OP. Anything you've got on OP here, I will redirect readers to check this thread instead.

Cheers!

Reports!

Nov. 18
- I bought 28 unid golds from a player with a WTS ad up about them offering them for 600g ea. I noticed other players with WTB ads up about them offering to buy 7 for 5k (~714g ea.)

Nov. 19
- I bought ~21 unid golds from a player with a WTS ad up offering 7 unid for 5k (~714g ea.)

Nov. 20-25
- I've bought several batches of 7/5k unids from several different players advertising that price over the past few days. There do seem to be some trading for more or less, but the average appears well centered at 7/5k as far as i can tell.

Dec. 19 - I met a player in Kama spamming to sell unids for 500g ea. and claiming they had a lot. Over the next two days, I wound up buying a total of over 50 unid'ed golds from him for his 500g ea. price.

Over the past couple weeks, I've bought unids from various sellers for their 7/5k (~714g ea.) asking prices in lots of anywhere from seven to 40ish at once.

I see some people with ads to both buy and sell at higher prices 7/5k sometimes, but the 7/5k seems to be the average.
