A lot of gears went up in prices even RWH, HBP and FAW. This can't be just simple inflation. Is there some sort of mass exodus from other servers? Looking at ragial prices, a lot of items almost doubled in price in just a week or two.

That happen everytime during refine event and yes it's annoying. I don't think most of them can sell it though because most buyer bought the item to make profit during event.  Experienced buyer usually bought the items before the event so they can make profit.

Hmm but even +9 gears seem to have increased in price as well. +9 HBP is around 500-600m

if there is exodus from other servers means more demand. but less supply.

I don't know it could just be market manipulation. A random thing that just came out of nowhere kind of like cyptocurrency. Although in crypto there is usually some sort of announcement before that happen.

Everyone goes up ... "everything" from Seagods, Cursed Fragments, or even Ygg seeds.

 

In the end, we're not even getting richer. It's just inflation lol

It all started when they put job manuals on OCPs. Then people realized that they can farm faceworm skins in exchange of merrit badges for job manuals. Then recycle it to OCPs. Now the faceworm skins are expensive AF which makes the KP/z conversion into hell.

Both HBP and FAW haven't been in a box for a long time. They keep rising obviously because theres no other way to get them right now.

more people quitting leaving their accs rotting or giving it to people who already have 20 accs who either want 3x the price of what items are worth or dont bother to vend them at all, resulting in more people quitting.

Each OCP is 1 month, we're on 14. I think that speaks for itself.

That doesn't explain the other items tho

makes sense. Didn't know about job manuals. 

 

more people quitting leaving their accs rotting or giving it to people who already have 20 accs who either want 3x the price of what items are worth or dont bother to vend them at all, resulting in more people quitting. 

 

would only make sense if it was a large group of people who all decided to quit together at the same time.

Well the price for poison bottle surely is falling right now, and its expected to continue this trend until new equilibrium is reached.

Actually hbp and faw were recently in boxes. It was called, blast from the past. But it was 500kp instead of the normal 300kp.

They gotta put it in ocp boxes and make the drop easy higher.

Or make a groove pack with the hand mentioned above and other threads in it.

Where do poison bottle comes from anyway? Investment? And what happened with the price? Last time I leveled a GX, it was still 20-30k per bottle.

They largely come from players doing WoE Investment machine and get the mats from the bags. Then they sell the mats or brew 'em. Price keeps going up because everyone keeps saying "farm with a GX!" lol.

I remember people get bottles directly from investments. I earned quite a sum buying and selling those. Was it removed? Did everybody just stop doing investments?
