    As the title says..

    how much could a Dawn's Music Box, with only one
    rare track missing, be worth? (The missing track is 'the wanderer')

    I used to try dealing in them, but it's extremely rare to get near-complete boxes sold, because people prefer to try and fill their own boxes that they've worked on, on and off, over the years instead... As a consequence single gears sell, but not boxes.

    As yours is as full as anyone without Wanderer can reasonably get, it may be desirable for someone who hasn't got one at all. However gears are now exceptionally easy to get, and that includes those marked as "Rare"; they all drop at the same rate from Sutek, both new and old, common and rare; there's no actual weighting to them any more, and you can get a gear every 2 minutes once you've got the quest memorized. So really you're charging for weeding out the duplicates and the time invested in grinding Sutek for the ones to fill a single box to drop.

    As a rough guideline, the basic price should be this;

    350k to 500k to buy a box itself from a Heritage Token.

    Per gear; I used to sell the duplicates for 5k each in Luna. Newer ones tend to shift quicker because there's more boxes needing those, but they tended to sit around for a week or two even at that price. 75 x 5k is 375k, so you're looking at those prices of a box around 1m.

    Charge 20k for each gear and you'd only get up to 2m, but most players will start going and getting their own gears at that price. Sorry to say, but Dawn's boxes simply aren't worth much, which is why I have given up trying to fill the last 5 boxes I was working on myself.

    If it included Wanderer however... that would be a different matter. I bought my gear for 6m a year back, and one went recently for around 5m that I saw. As a complete box you could probably get around 10m then. The sites that shall not be named are selling them illegally for $20 I can see, which would be about 20m, but I'd be surprised if you could get anywhere near that in game gold.

    When Sutek's quest was new, many people were doing it so you could trade, and prices were low, but since no one do it anymore it is very difficult to find gears for sale those days: everytime I put on vendor any uncommon/rare gear EXCEPT the 3 SA "rare" ones (*), they sell in a matter of hours even if I price them 100k or more. And the "common" ones sell at 15k or more pretty fast too.

    As for The Wanderer it sells easily for 20m, and full boxes (including The Wanderer) go as far up as 40m at rares festivals.

    BTW Sutek's quest is not as piece of cake as some may think: he is rarely around his lab, and sometimes wanders extremely far, and can stay there for weeks. Plus when you miss just a few gears the probability to get them becomes terribly low. You likely need to do the quest a thousand times to get all gears that way.

    However, a full box without The Wanderer is very difficult to sell, since it is more difficult to find The Wanderer as a gear than a partial box with The Wanderer in it (from an IDOC sale for example) as a starting base. The only people who can be interested are those who would rather enjoy a box with a missing track than paying dozens of millions.

    (*) The 3 SA "rare" tracks are in fact extremely common because unlike the other tracks that you actually have to farm for, many people get those 3 as a side drop from killing SA minichamps, so the market is saturated.

    Wow, thanks for the long replys! I'm totally stunned with your 2 long replys :)

    I guess i did it the wrong way then. Seems like the better deal would be
    collecting gears and put one of each kind in a bag and then sell the bag,
    so the buyer could put the gear in his own box. (Guess that could fetch some million)

    I have 3 rare gears (primeval lich, stygian dragon, slasher veil). Does they worth anything?

    No, they are not easy to sell for 20K each, they drop a lot on the Abyss Mini Champ Bosses, thats why they are not in high demand...
