Default Mini Ghostly vs Shiro'ken

Can someone please explain to me how the heck a ded Ghostly is worth more than a ded Shiro'ken?

There are more mini Ghostly Hero's than Shiro'kens. And there is always the possibility of more Ghostly Hero's entering the game each day.

So why do I see people spamming WTB Ded mini Ghostly 950e!? Then I see a thread on guru where a ded Shiro'ken B/O is like 750.

And on a similar subject. All of those limited minis are only getting more rare. I had this long debate with some guy about this. It's my opinion that many of the people that currently own these minis are keeping them for status. They just want them for their personal collection, not for powertrading. This should make these rare minis even more rare as less and less are actually for sale. But what I see is the prices are still quite low.

Are they currently undervalued, or will they never rise again?

doesn't really matter what is more 'rare' sometimes. ghostly is a very cool minipet and is still quite rare (yes, shiroken is more so). i know a lot of people who don't like the shiroken, though

i was confused by that as well. a friend recently got a shiro'ken and sold his ghostly. I thought he was upgrading, but then he told me their prices

Tons of things in trading don't make that much sense - all a pet does it walk around in town - nothing else. There are items that are actually USEFUL that are much rarer and they don't sell for much. That is way more unbalanced than mini pets. The only reason why they went way up a bit back was because people were hoping they might give you a bonus or a nice item in GW2.

And if you compare items a BDS is not all that rare and they keep coming into the market and they still sell for more than items 100x as rare. All about supply and demand.

ghostly hero is popular cos it looks unique, but price will probably drop a bit cos new ghostly priest mini. vizu is rarer than panda or ig, but vizu is still cheaper cos its tiny.(n ppl like panda)

anyway i also think shiroken/zhed are underrated compared to ghostly hero/polar bear.

Ghostly Hero is a cool dude and has been a character in the game since the beginning plus his voice gets anybody excited so it makes sense why it is more rare.
