    Default Etherboard | *prices shouldn't be decided by BUY+ owners

    Shouldn't the price be decided by the buyers/sellers? Why are world owners assuming prices?

    Thingamabob: 12.000 Cads = 80DLs
    Magnifying Glass: 12.000 Cads = 60-80WLs

    i just think that prices shouldn't be decided by BUY+ owners

    They don’t. Owners don’t decide the prices, but they do influence the price. That is why we need to be wise when buying/selling items.

    We the players decide on which price we want to buy/sell the item. The prices on the world is a factor that influences the price, but it does not decide the price. Some owners set prices higher/lower than the price should be. It may be because of the lack of price updates or just sudden changes. There are many factors for the price to become awfully questionable. That is why we need to be cautious.

    going by the way you obtain it and whatnot, that estimate probably isn’t too far from what they will be traded for

    yea that's right, but the influence really give a strong impact, making sellers unlikely to sell below the price point described by the world, causing frustrated buyers to buy it for whatever the seller sells it for.

    Most things are bound to drop, and this item does not make an exception, at least I don’t think so.

    It is a recently added item, so let’s see how the price would change. The owner probably made a poor decision to make a price before having an exact viewpoint or guide of where the appropriate price stands.

    Just wait for maybe a week, or so.

    considering that the prize is from growlactus,it's actually a pretty reasonable price. not like he listed it as 50+dls cause there's none in game yet

    I actually estimated based on robotic tentacle prices (and how it costs slightly higher) + the demand/how new it is.
    But getting harassed and insulted over a one or two dl difference something hardly anyone has is kinda.. low

    Nenkaai is absolutely right, after all, you can't predict a new item price at 100% accuracy.
    I've even seen people selling it at 40+ DLs
