The Way Out
Last Saturday, I bought 20 stacks [item]Saronite Bar[/item] for 40g each stack, while the market price was 60g. The price lowered to 42g on Sunday and remained there since then.
While the market reports from US that indicate prices of goods on Northern will drop soon (Since the people will come back and farming for gold), I had a hard time to get rid of them.
I had to consider
- Accept my lose, to sell the bars at 35-38g
- or, get hold of the bars to wait for a “possible” raise of them in the future.
I was thinking of 1. for the last minutes before the patch 3.1 .
But then, Comes my Savior
One of my guild mate ask me for the [item]Saronite Razorheads[/item]. I peek on the auction hall and thought there were no profits at all. 6g for 200 arrows. 6gx5=30g.
I was mumbling that until I crafted the [item]Saronite Arrow Maker[/item] and when I was able to mail him, I notice the line (10 uses) for the first time.
It was 5 uses for [item]Adamantite Arrow Maker[/item] before, so I assume it remains.
Now that’s 50% profit margin, while I had lots of [item]Saronite Bar[/item] stockpiled! I’ll just convert them to arrow maker each day and sold them by 200 a time. I even post a maker for 36g, just to test out the market (Which of course in a much lower profit margin of 20g vs 6g).
And it turn out, no one was buying the makers, but all my arrows sold out. On the day follow, I noticed someone was flooding those arrow maker as well, e.g. 10-15 @ price 35g. However while he wants to undercut me on the maker, he didn’t list an single arrow. And… my arrows are all sold again.
I guess 3.1′s come in bring back a lot of rusher, and that’s why my arrow sold like candy in skrooge’s word (not just common candy, addictive candy). Every arrow maker’s arrow sold will save me another half stack of [item]Saronite Bar[/item] losing. Thanks for supporting the “Saronite Bar Post 3.1 Recovery Fund”.
While a lot of people talks about the [item]Mammoth Cutters[/item] and [item]Saronite Razorheads[/item] (JMTC, Gevlon, Skrooge). I never witness such a ___ thing before(Stupid/Weired/Strange I can’t find the right word).
Thanks for escape route for me
I was lucky this time, but I wonder how I’ll deal with another cut-loss situation next time though
How would you deal with it, when you feel yourself got into trouble?
