    Why are people asking such ridiculous prices for this item? And is anyone paying them? Seems a little overpriced just for a vet reward, are there really that many super rich fisherpeople out there to buy all these for 100m+?

    Some people will always ask a ridiculous price for items, if no one pays it, they'll have to reduce it.

    True, but I'm curious why this particular item is being advertised for sale for hundreds of millions - I can't recall any other Veteran reward ever starting off at this high a price point except the very top tier items like the Garden Shed.

    I was thinking the same thing as Risso. It's a lower level reward then lets say the shed which in my opinion should be worth alot more. Even with the fact that the shed can only be used by players
    that are 15 year players. But if you have multiple accounts and one is a 15th year vet there's a way of still using the shed on like a a 5 year account. I have not seen very many shed's being offered
    by players at this point due to thier rarity.
    On the other hand the lockers should be alot more plentifull to find. But players will always try and find the person who needs that special item right away and are not willing to wait, Factor in the recent
    surge of inflation into this game like transfer tokens selling for like 35+ million on some shards and I can see the therse being worth around 50+ million to the players who fairly new into playing the
    game. I would think that the vet players who want them will wait untill they get another 2 picks coming.

    Another thing which I find as odd is the fact that the other 8th Year Veteran Reward, the Weapon Engraving Tool, same year account age, sells on average about 6 millions or so. I can understand that the Davies' Locker Table being new could have a higher value than the other same year vet reward like twice as much or even triple as much but more than that ?

    Sold my two for 23m each on europa within a few seconds. I was happy with the price, two buyers were also. 200m? Get out of here!

    23m I would do no problem. 200m?? No thanks. I will wait the 5 months when I will get my 2 more vet selections. The shed, unfortunately I will need to wait another 3 years....

    I put mine up just for the funny!! However, if some crazy vet would have purchased it, all the better. I ended up taking it down that day to use it. Assuming a 15 year vet will choose one when he/she gets their picks is a bit presumptuous. There are better pics to choose, and they will spend gold for the Davies in order to save their choice for the shed or another shield. Regardless, supply and demand will eventually move the price to we're it should be, not nagging by other players that suppose they know what should be worth what.
