GW2: Going for 1000 gold – Day 15

by manylaughs on January 17, 2014

As you can see, very little movement, today. My starting gold is almost the same as yesterday.

There are two reasons for this:

First, I bought a lot of onyx cores. I use onyx lodestones in a variety of runes. I upgrade the cores in the mystic forge. It costs one bottle of elonian wine, a crystal, a pile of crystalline dust and 2 of the cores to make one onyx lodestone. I think that’s worth it. So when someone dump a bunch of cores on the trading post at a sweet price, I picked them right up.

The other reason is a few things that normally sell quickly are still sitting on the trading post. Specifically, in the last two days, the market for sigils of torment is off about 20%. Every time I list one at what I think is a reasonable price, someone force the price lower.

I’m not worried. I’m going to let me sigils sit for a while and see what the market does. If it goes significantly lower, I’ll relist my sigils at a lower price. For now, I’ll make other things. No big deal.

And that’s the lesson for today: You should always have other options, other things you can make and sell. The market in Guild Wars 2 can change on the whim of a developer. Be ready to change, too, if needed.
