For those wondering what scrolls to sell:

Tiger will sell like hotcakes.

Eye spots also sell pretty fast.

Clown and seraph are good sellers but they won't sell as fast as tiger or eyespots unless there's a shortage. Demand tends to come in waves.

stripes will sell okay-ish, it's a slowish seller. It'll sell, but it's not always worth the effort.

Speckle and freckle: don't bother, it's a slower sell than stripes and the profit margin is crap.

breed change scrolls: only worth while in the beginning of the week if you can be a vigilant seller. There's a larger profit margin, but ten times as many people are going to be complete dumb fucks when it comes to undercutting. Also tends to be a slow sale and will get slower with more of the dumb fuck breed of undercutters as the week goes on. If you can make it work, do it, if not don't bother, it's a pain in the butt.

what kind of profit margin do you usually shoot for

I usually went for the largest I could while still giving a discount, trying to go for something specific or consistent across the board doesn't work to well and I'd regularly change it up to make sure it'd sell if prices had changed.

On average I sold most around these prices:

eye spot = 109K
seraph = 120-122K
Tiger = 130-133K
Clown = 165-168K

Stripes and freckle I don't remember because I was nearly always sleeping when they sold.

(I didn't manage to sell a single breed change scroll as people were undercutting by 10-30k at a time and would re-undercut in an instant if ever undercut.)

If you're selling late at night, Tiger can go for 180k plus.

Opinion on breed changes:

Skydancer sells like hotcakes a lot of the time, although last week when Plague had dominance it was pretty slow going when the lag was intense.

Spiral is an okay seller but be prepared to wait a an hour or so.

Snapper is fine if you have somewhere to go for a few hours (work, school bed). It'll probably sell then.

Don't bother with ridgeback and pearlcatcher, genes sell faster and are close enough in price that the profit from the cheaper breed changes isn't worth it.

This is awesome, thank you!

Haha, sure wish I had checked here before I went and bought a stupid freckle to sell ;; guess I'll just have to wait for it to go before I can manage anything else.

try to grind some cash via games or coliseum in the meantime so after it sells you can get a more expensive scroll.

Gembond sells good too.
