Well, i have been quiet for a few weeks, but since august ended, we have seen some wild things going on, and some tremendous merchanting opportunities come up.
In the first week of the month, we had the once a year pack, the anniversary packs. Now not only does this pack seem to have a better drop rate then others, as well as items not found in other packs, but it was on sale at a tremendous price of 50 for 15 gold, 3 gold less then the “standard” pack sales. ( tiger packs also were on sale, for the same new price )
This led to Merchanting opportunity #1
A tremendous spike in gold prices. Gold prices saw a spike in the area of 20% or so, leading to an immediate profit opportunity just off gold trading.
Then, we had a new pack introduced, the wildlife pack, for the standard 18 gold for 50. However, with some new wings, dye-able mounts, and more, gold prices stayed fairly high.
Here came merchant opportunity #2
With the cost of anni packs coming out to approx 380-400k per pack with the special price, and with the high gold price when the wildlife pack came out, you could mark up your anniversary packs 50%… 200k profit per pack in this case, and still be the same price as the wildlife pack. Although the price of the wildlife packs dropped later in the week, the Anni packs still sold like hotcakes at 600k per
And now, this week we have Dragon Orbs +11 and +12 on sale. While it seems many are upset at this, they all seem to be jumping at the chance to refine their gear to the max. Gold is back up over 1.5m on Rt, higher then the anni pack prices.
As for the opportunities that come this week, i am still unsure, but with 3 all new cash shop items ( anni is pretty much new, as the rarity gives it the same affect ) who knows whats in store this coming week. You can be sure though, there is money to be made
