    The white cu is probably the easiest cu to sell (short of a blaze ;)). Untrained with terrible numbers, I got 2.5 mil for one last week on Atlantic (probably could have gotten 3M, but I felt bad because he was so awful - truly just a bank sitting dog, at 1.8). Good numbers and trained, 3-5M. Of the other rare colors, the blacks sell next best, and I can usually sell the ice blues, rose pinks, and reds without too much trouble, but no more than 3M unless they're 4.0+ rated. All other colors basically won't sell unless the cu has good to great numbers, just like a plain. (I kill off anything below 3.5).

    I have no idea on hiryu pricing, as I haven't spent much time working with them.

    Greater dragons, I tend to price lower than my competitors on Atlantic, but I base my prices on what I'm generally willing to pay myself. These prices change as the market changes, but here's where I'm at right now. These are for fresh tames, untrained:

    3.4 - budget draggy! 150k. Sometimes I'll drop to 99K if the phys/fire or HP are particularly bad. I just like to have a decent starter dragon available for tamers on a budget.

    3.5 - 250k
    3.6 - 350k
    3.7 - 500k
    3.8 - 850k
    3.9 - 950k
    4.0 - 1.5M
    4.1 - 2M
    4.2 - 4M
    4.3 - 6M
    4.4 - 8M
    and I'm not lucky enough to find a dragon any higher than 4.4 :)

    A guy in a stall near mine had a 4.3 fully trained GD up for 20 mil. It did not sell, so he lowered it a week later to 18M. It still has not sold (as of yesterday, anyway). Personally, I'd pay 10 or 12 mil, tops. Maybe not even that high - training is kind of a throw-in kind of perk these days. It used to be worth a lot more, but on a greater dragon, they're such tanks that training can be done while out and about just having fun with the pet. I took a fresh gdragon out to Doom and ran the Gauntlet a few times this weekend, and in an hour and a half, nearly GM'd all of his skills just using him to fight. Is that worth an extra 5 mil on the price? Not really. Your mileage may vary!

    Nightmares... I roll 3.4 @ 50K. +25K per 0.1 through 4.0. Then 4.1 - 250K, 4.2 - 300K, 4.3 - 350K, 4.4 - 500K.

    Rune Beetles... 3.4 @ 100K. +50K per 0.1 through 4.0. Then 4.1 @ 1M and +1M per .1 (so, 4.4 - 4M).

    I tweak this scheme constantly - if a pet is on my vendor for a week or so and not moving, I'll drop the price. If pets are selling immediately, I'll raise the price (or just be happy!) The pet economy is constantly in ebb and flow....

    4.7 is sweet! The highest GD I've ever seen with my own eyes was a 4.6 (and it was not mine). :)
