I have a dragon who, character-wise, has reason to carry scrolls around all the time. I'd like to dress him up with a scroll case sling... except that for some reason this completely innocuous item was a Kickstarter exclusive. why

does anyone sell battle dragons? like, already-leveled dragons. i don't really want to buy one or anything but i'm just wondering if this is a market. too bad you can't see or sort by level in the AH.

Is it even possible to sell anything for a profit now? Undercutters are seriously making me flip my shit and I feel like just ragequitting the AH and hoard selling everything if I'm not even going to make 100t off of the hoard sell price.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-15 05:23 pm (UTC)(link)
I've been doing fine with apparel and familiars and other low-level drops from grinding. You just have to be willing to relist once a day. Furthermore, many apparel items will sell successfully at a gem price higher than the equivalent treasure price. Go figure.

nah, most of ice is opposed to that plan, mainly because it would be practically impossible given battle weariness.

I just sniped an underpriced exaltbait. Then I took a closer look at him and he's silver/grey/blood. SIGH.

Trading is my new favorite game

(Anonymous) 2013-09-15 06:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Seriously, it is so much fun getting rid of stuff in the hoard. It is even more fun spotting underpriced stuff and flipping it. I like this so much more than the official games.

I flip cheap stuff, but it still adds up.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-15 06:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Someone undercut me by 3k on an item.

I'm about to ragequit wtf.

Between idiots undercutting by thousands and people that do nothing but check the auction house so they can undercut every five minutes, reselling is becoming a pain in the ass lately. Prices are down ridiculous amounts; iridescent, for example, is something like 20k lower than it should sell for.

Ugh.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-15 07:13 pm (UTC)(link)
I agree that the price of Iridescent is stupid-low right now. That's why... I'm not trying to sell it? I'm selling Circuit and Shimmer instead.

jars are up!

just needed to rant

(Anonymous) 2013-09-15 07:12 pm (UTC)(link)
I was so excited about this pair (http://trollslum.net/fr/?id=9,12,66,65,64,67,1) a couple days ago, but ugh, what's the point. I still need a spiral scroll for the male and a shimmer for the female, and by the time the female comes off cooldown spirals will just be exalt bait anyway. They're practically exalt bait now.

It doesn't help that I'm bored of the fairegrounds when they even work at all, my attempts at reselling have all been disastrous because I get undercut so fast, and I don't have an imperial or a pair that could breed triple whites, so I can't make the treasure to get the scrolls. Unless I resign myself to grinding the games (when I can) until it feels more like a chore than a game, of course.

This game had so much promise, but right now I'm just glad I've never spent any real money on it.

Re: just needed to rant

(Anonymous) 2013-09-15 07:20 pm (UTC)(link)
I know who you are and oh my god I am so fucking tired of you whining about this on my plurk when otherwise you're a great person. Dragons aren't worthless, you just aren't making a huge profit so you think they are. People will still buy them, just not for oodles of treasure. You're bored of the fairegrounds? Well, too bad. Everyone else is getting money that way.

The game is in fucking beta, the marketplace is equalizing and not crashing, get the fuck over it and stop fucking whining everywhere.

And yes, I mad. I've seen you whining everywhere about it today.

There just aren't as many snappers out there. They were never as popular as pcs and spirals.
