Dumb people sell shards, don't be dumb!

You didn't get the point. It's nobody's time. You don't have to be at the computer while it processes. You go to sleep or work and when you're back, you have 10M more.

Also, I fully understand if someone isn't processing at all. But lot's of people process ore into shards for 0.5M/hour, just to sell them to me who makes 2M/hour. They are dumb.

how do you know that the shards are processed and not just the crap that heating things down gives you?

Going from shards to ingots is nice margin worth the extra processing step but I dont buy shards to make ingots. I use only my own resources to make ingots and that is because of market place limit of 30.
I diversified my sources of income, I do lots of grinding with newly released dark knight I get lots of armor, weapon drops and those sell nowdays instantly for max prices ever (grunil, taritas, heve, kriegmessers...). So its quite problem when I return with full inventory of various items and cant register anything at marketplace.

rock.thumb.jpg.83d153dd917a627a4957d7a7b here is why ppl sell them.... Where will I ever find the time to process that? xD don't call ppl dump... ya it's not the best way but too much is too much man and that is only a tiny exemple in one of my bank and Im far from the best at keeping my worker going...

The thing is why would I even bother to process that anyway since I can make way more money in the same ammount of time afk fishing... time is the important resources here... think about that ^^"

That's like 1 day, 2 max of processing. Just do it while you go out to the store or out with friends, to work, to school, to sleep or any other time you're not planning on actively playing the game. You can do like 5k ores per 1-2h maybe more depending on your level and success rate. You have at least 100m sitting there, most likely more

well you have to have the cash to pay up front, the weight limit to allow you to carry 5 hours worth of smelting , and only be afk for 5 hours (myself i like to sleep longer!) now im really dumb i just turn my pc off and don't bother making anything but wouldn't afk fishing be both easier and more money than 2mil an hour?

@Gash: I don't see where you make shards

@AlnilamE: are you Santa Claus to provide them the shards they need?

@Coeprandua: Iron ore is 445, 2 needed for a shard which is 1771 minus tax. You can make 750 in an hour, so you make 0.558M per hour. If you make 3000 shards, that takes 4 hours and gets you 2.2M profit. If you'd spend another hour processing them to ingots, you'd make 5.2M all together. How is it not dumb to spend 4 hours and then sell the shards for 2.2 to let me make the same 2.2 instead of making 5.2 yourself (2.2+2.2 =/= 5.2 because of tax)

What proc skill do you need to use 2 ores for a shard? I'm Prof 5 and it still takes 5 for a shard and 10 for an ingot, for me it's a straight loss of cash to turn them into ingots, which is probably why people throw them on the market.

@ZzREDzZ: those are ores, not shards. Of course people sell them if they have no time processing them. I'm talking about people who process them to shards and then sell them instead of moving to ingots.

@SillySin: that is a screenshot from August. What did you have back then? +14?

I make about 2 M/hour while asleep with processing. How? Dumb people process ores to shards and sell them. I buy the shards, process them to ingots and sell them. Let's look at iron for example: At this moment I can buy 4 shards for 4*1771 = 7084 silver. Due to tax, the moron who sold them to me got 5986 silver 

I can sell them for 11800 silvers, minus tax: 9971 silver. My profit is 2900 silver and since I can make 750 ingots per hour, I pull 2.2M/hour. If the moron who spent 4x more time processing the ores into shards than I spend processing the shards into ingots would process himself, he would pull 9971-5986 = 3985 silvers per shard or 3M/hour (during the time he makes ingots, of course less while he makes shards)

Please stop being morons, there is absolutely no reason to sell shards if ingots are not overcrowded on the market (currently only zinc and some exotics). If you processed ores into shards, make ingots yourself, don't let me be rich on your work. I'm already sitting on 3B on top of full TET gear. And I have enough shards in my bank for weeks of non-stop processing.

 

More business tips in my guide.

Lol, you are complaining because you can make profit?

It rather seems to me that you want that shard business all for yourself :)
