    Is my vendor too expensive, or is it bad marketing, poor location or trying to sell junk nobody wants because I have sold nothing in the past week. It is located 2 or 3 screens east of Moonglow gate, near the bend in the road.

    Sample prices.

    Burglar's Bandana - 30k
    Staff of Power - 30k
    Level 5 Devious T map - 3k
    Bracelet 1/2 with 12% DCI and 10% Cold Resist - 3k
    Ring Animal Lore +13 - 500gp
    Alchemist's bauble - 30k

    If these prices are reasonable I will keep adding new things while I clean out my houses.

    Id say poor location, prices seem good or below average.

    Yes it seems that way. Since posting I have sold quite a bit of stuff.

    What's a ring like this worth?

    Ring FC1 + FCR2 + DCI 14% + HCI 12% + SDI 11%

    Not as much as it would have a year ago. A very nice piece indeed, but with the faction items, there isnt a lot of demand for 2/1 jewels. Id still say 300-400k.

    yes, poor location,


    BUT- this one, and perhaps many others, did not know it was there. When you restock, give advertisement with items, and location.

    drop some runes around noting what you have in their description once or twice a week. That helps for sure.

    Post a pic of your shop in the sticky, and when you are selling something here, put at least a pic of where it is on map in the post so people can find it easier. Also, don't just drop alot of runes around because some people will just pick all of them up and re-use them. When I first oped my shop, I dropped a few by moongates, but I gave them directly to people hanging at the bank. This should help get the word out. Good luck!

    i will give you 50k for it.

    PM me, i live in UK so will most likely be a good few hours before we can trade. if you have and decent HCI/DCI shields with FC1 i will pay well for those too.

    i feel your pain!
    there is a good vendor just west of Yem moongate, there are about 12 vendors there and i believe the one on the top tier sells mage regs, normally has stock too! also the Gilfane market seems pretty good in terms of keeping mage regs stocked, i was lucky enough to buy a large amount of necro regs that i use so its not too often i have to search, another good tip is to find a cheep town.... if you got an hour or 2 to spare you can buy massive amounts, each time you buy from a vendor they respawn double next time, can get up to 999 within about 45 mins to an hour then every tiome after that you buying 1k of each..... if there 4 vendors in the mage shop thats 4k of each with every refresh.... they you could run a vendor hehee
