    getting fed up with trading.

    Ya know. this is the one thing that urks me to know end.

    the trading systems especially on US east nl is just out of control.

    if you are not popping 4 hr an soj or something people don't want to trade at all. if you are not trading cta nigma or grief or ebotdz which are all over the place now it is useless.

    i tried picking up a 3 o piece of ap. guy tells me it is 1 soj. i am like what.

    prices are out of control there is no sense of balancing in the trading system. items that use to be worth money are not worth nothing.

    and with all the luck i have with finding stuff (which is none). i just don't know. with all the dupes running around you would think it would kill the market but it doesn't.

    what do you guys think.

    Simple, don't use a 3 sock AP. They get ridiculously expensive for no good reason. I normally just find random low quality elite armor and repair it, then use Larzuk (gauranteed 3 socket). I agree the prices are out of whack though, 1 HR for a shako?

    I dunno, the prices are out of control, but that 1hr for a shako thing was actually the case back in the beginning of ladder. Then prices went down for a little while, now they are way up.

    Move to Europe. You'll find shakos for an Um, 2*Um = Mal, 2*Mal = Ist etc.
    Almost the way it was supposed to be when they invented the cubing of higher runes. :azn:

    I am just waiting for people to start duping mid-runes on the account that they are "too difficult to find".

    maybe my aims are a little high but i am looking for a good 3 soc armour.

    well i think all the duping should really kill the prices down to nothing but for some reason it doesn't it only increases the cost.

    i am trying to build a zeal/smite.

    i have the build it is just getting the equipment. some guy told me a nl hoz non upped or eth or soc was 3 soj. i about died. i am like it is a shield in a game come on.

    it is stupid what people want. but when you have something they want they try and give crap for it.

    I agree and disagree.

    This ladder have been open for too long time. The items dont have any value anymore. If you dont have perfect item its not even possiblle to trade it, but if its perfect it cost tons of Ists.

    And shakos cost only Pul. Noone will pay more than that. IMO perfect can cost upto Ist.

    ehh.... I cant wait anymore WHEN BLIZZARD WILL RESET LADDER OMG N00BZZZ

    :grin:

    ha you think ladder is bad try non ladder.

    everything is way over priced for what it is worth.

    a guy yesterday posted 10 soj for a fort i think he got it or close to it.

    it is just insane what people are paying for stuff.

    Now that's the bad thing for dupes.
    It destroys the market completely.

    I face the same problem since I sometimes play in EastNL. No way I can get high-end items cos I'm too poor there. For low-mid level items I just post in the trade forum here and some kind-hearted fellow members would sometimes post in my thread and say they have such low-mid items for reasonable price.

    It kinda sounds like you're just mad that the really awesome item you want is so popular that it's expensive.

    The key market is kind of similar. Two months ago you could trade a single HR for either 3 keysets or an organ set. Now, it's not uncommon to see organsets going for 2-4 hr and keysets going for an hr each.
    I think the issue is that HRs are so common that their value is less but keysets/organstes are still hard to find (why no one dupes them I'm not sure) so their value goes up.

    Apply that logic to the 3os archon plate. Those don't get duped like crazy so the only way to find them is through normal play and since they don't drop often, they're very valuable. HRs get duped a lot and there are a ton on the market hence people wanting (and getting) several HR in a trade for a 3os ap.

    In other words, duping makes something like a 3os archon plate more rare (hence more valuable) than a HR. Same logic applies to other items (arachnid mech, for example).

    Heh, I guess that makes my self-found perfect arachnid mesh pretty damn valuable. ;)

    no what has me ticked off is when people need an item they want to give you crap for it. but if you need something they want to take everything you have and it is way overpriced.

    Start selling items for lower prices. You only perpetuate the cycle if you keep demanding the high prices. Start selling stuff for cheaper and word spreads like wildfire. Demand lower prices when you trade. If someone asks the price of something in a chat channel tell them a more realistic price.

    You've done it? Mal Pul is the best I've done, and Mal Um is common. :tongue:

    Btw, shako = um on nl. :azn:

    I was away for a few months playing another Blizzard game (enough to think that I attempted to attack move my zealot, and think that zealots uses 2 psi blades). Anyways, when I got back, I saw a game called bring shako, and someone popped me a ber. I was freaked, and thought he attempted to scam me.
