    Hi,

    I am wondering if there are tamers out there that have made it a business of selling pets.
    While I raise my taming I tame Cu Sidhe's and have come across some nice ones.

    One of the questions is if there is a market out there for high pet power pets and if someone has any experience with this.

    Also, what should one charge for these pets? I guess there aren't any astronomical prices if it isn't a blaze cu but for let's say 4+ Cu sidhes. Colors?

    Anyone that has any experience of this or is it just not worth trying to sell them?

    I guess I have an image of Wolfe - The Cu Sidhe Whisperer in my head or something.

    Afraid I can't help on the questions regarding selling prices etc.

    However, I have a human tamer and have been after a decent Cu Sidhe for a while. If you are willing to sell I'll take one off your hands. I'll forward my ICQ in a PM later.

    All the best regards the other info :thumbup:

    Not positive on Europan prices, but on Atlantic, the most desired colors are pure white, black, and red. Untrained, so-so white/black/red cus start at around 4 mil.

    For trained cus with really good stats/resists, I'd expect someone to pay 3 to 4 mil, regardless of color.

    I've done ok dealing in higher end pets on GL. Basically, GDrags, Cu's are the big sellers, but bugs, mares and bakes sell well also IF they are EXCELLENT examples. I personally don't live or die by the pet calculator, but a lot of folks ask.....4.0 is the threshold...give them that and they will buy. For Cu's, I generally only sell the rarer colors as most folks don't want a common one despite it's stats/resists. I've sold colored Cu's for 3-15 million, fully trained, depending on color and stats. Highest demand is Black and White, with a slightly lesser demand for the dard red. GDrags are all about HP's, stats, resists, and skills, so they are a bit harder to price. I've sold for anywhere from 2-20 million for the right one. With that said, this market has gone a little soft. Bugs, bakes and mares I have gotten anywhere from 2-15 million, the 15 being a VERY nice bug. Generally look for good ones in the 1-5 million range...not really bad considering the effort...again that is for fully trained versions. If you deal ONLY in higher quality pets, you will develop a reputation that will help your sales. There are still a lot of folks that like the "prestige" of owning high end pets, and aren't interested in taming them themselves. With that said, you may sit on a pet for quite some time to get it sold...don't give them away. Good luck.
