    as far as recent items goes this is the highest I've seen from a 1 of 10 drop.

    In general, a 1 of 10 drop with secondary function will bump the price up in the few hundred mil range such as:

    Born Demon Head
    Talking Wisp statue
    Favor of Stratos status
    Queen Bee Statue
    That White Leaf Harp thingy
    etc..

    EM items hold no value. They are not TRUE rares :)

    Heck True Rares aren't even True Rares anymore since they were "mass produced" so really there is no such thing as a True Rare.

    Rare: marked by unusual quality, merit, or appeal

    So a EM item count 10 EM should be worth more then what you call a "True Rare" Two story statue item count 900



    As for prices the first posts normally overcharge 500% and then if collectors can get in touch with each other and find out they have all the items they will attempt to set a price together and control the market for the item, thus overcharging you millions upon millions, I almost fell into that a few weeks ago which is why I did not release my sale prices.

    BUT if its a really awesome item that does an animation or talks or something special those go for lots and depends on what item it is, color and name.

    most 1 of 10 items sell between 40-80 mil, some fetch quite a bit more but not typically, the price for uniques range quite a bit but 250-400 mil is typical price for a fairly boring one (no cool color/graphic/name) ... at least from the posts and sales ive been watching in the 7 months ive been back in the game

    deamon blood candle is an abnormality, it is the absolute coolest looking item that has come out this year. it is animated, has a cool name, and has a wicked color... in a room full of rare items it stands out... it fetches 700 mil becuz they are virtually never seen for sale and most collectors want one

    Pretty much have to agree with all of what Restless has just said. To say that there is a set price for 1 in 10 items is just ridiculous, they all vary, some are always going to be better than others.

    If the drop rate were the most important thing than why not just sell it as such. "1 of 10 item for sale, 300 mill or b/o!" Having a low drop rate certainly doesn't hurt, but it doesn't solely dictate what something will sell for.

    As for the candle, I really can't say enough about that thing. It is my favorite item this season as well.

    Also that candle that I have a 705 bid on matches a extremely rare cake I have. Part of the reason I went so high. Now if Nightly ever makes up his mind is another thing =). Other items that are 1 of ten, An Ocean Wave Cuchulainn Once Battled and also a 1 of 20 item that goes that high as well Yamato Nadeshiko (Flower) (20)

    Ahhh yes, I know that cake well. Orc had three if I remember correctly, then two because he accidentally ate one. :(

    yes i really dont get it either, just a few months ago 1 in 10's were yes around 100m mark less or a bit more (exception given to a few that were highly sout after for graphic/annimation combined etc) and now everyone want 200-300+ for them and they are items that really dont meet the bench mark at least to me to be that price and its not like there are less event items being given out, just the opposite they being pumped out like candy. I for one am not going to buy any of these items people are asking these crazy prices for but hey maybe thats just me, im not hating on the people that do but im just not going to add to this craziness and give in to this new trend. If that means im not going to be getting any new rare items for awhile unless i attend the event myself and loot then so be it.......just my opinion :shots:

    I"m with you BigEv. Could I afford to spend that much? Easily, but to me personally they aren't worth that much. Value is in the eye of the beholder.

    I collect "_____ of exceptional quality" items and many collectors could care less about them. I don't expect I'll recoup the amount I've spent on them if I ever sell, but I have -enjoyed- the collection. That is worth the gold to me.

    People can ask what they want but it doesn't mean they will get it. I can pretty much guarantee that that rabbit tail wont go over 100.
