Prices on craftable costumes

11 posts in this topic

Posted

So, I recently started crafting costumes, berserker suits, warrior suits and wizard suits. I am pretty sure I'm one of the few who is actually crafting them, I keep a close eye on the prices and I make sure that I keep a profitable margin when selling them. I think I'm even the only one who sold even a single one of these over the past few days, since the last price it was sold for (928k) is still registered as the latest price.

Most of you will probably know this, but one suit needs the design, 30 cotton fabrics and 20 fine fancy feathersto be crafted. But for some reason the prices on these suits went from 900k on average, 400-500k to even 300k for the berserker one. This basically means that I'm better off selling the seperate parts then crafting the suit and actually selling it. How in the world do prices drop so fast? Is it because DAUM is forcefully dropping the prices on these items? Because I know they did so for the ogre rings and other extremely expensive accessories. I can't wrap my head around how the prices dropped so crazy hard.

I've noticed almost every item can be sold for less than the price of its materials. It baffles me why the prices are that way.

Probably has something to do with the fact they aren't all that hard to make now.

AFAIK the algorithm for MP prices works based on supply and demand, it doesn't take into account the price of materials for a crafted item.

Previously cotton was only gatherable through manual player gathering, which was energy gated and thus gated supply. Now you can gather it with workers which has flooded the market and pushed cotton down in line with the other fabric plant prices (Flax, etc).

I understand how the system works. The thing I'd like to point out is that the warrior costume is back up to 900k a piece (same mats), the wizards is still at 600k (same mats) and the berserker is still at 300k (same mats). It absolutely baffles me and if prices are run by an algorithm, why in the world does it show such large differences?

Yeah but that really changes prices so much that the zerker suit is only 30% in price compared to the warrior/wizard one? It feels like something else is going on tbh, but maybe it's just me.

no idea, the market system in this game is a lil strange, and people like to constantly place stuff at the lowest price when theirs is the only item up driving prices down for some reason.

yeah I know people like to just slap things on for the lowest price, the strange thing here though is that I'm the last who sold one. One for over 900k only 1 day ago. So the changes seem crazy drastic.

Anyway, I'll keep my eye on it for a while, see what happens.
