    A cursed doom item that is traded in is worth 5k points.
    A cursed item that is used and sold on a vendor goes for 200k (approx).
    That would make a common Alacricy scroll worth 800k.
    That would make 1 ring or brac to the luck set worth 6 mill, or both for 12 mill.
    One piece of Armor for 100k points worth 4 mill, or 24 mill for a set.
    Either people need to drop the price of cursed items, or they need to get used to these high prices.
    Plz post your thoughts on fair pricing or your reasons for higher prices. Thank you.

    I doubt if things are valued with their 'spring cleaning' value in mind, more their usefulness in the field.
    Just because EA set a points value on it doesn't make that value relevant to Siege.

    Place a value on points is exactly what im asking.
    Reguardless to other shards, this is about Siege.
    Is 1 scroll worth 4 dragon lances but not 2 Hats of the Magi?
    Points are points. So what is the value of 20k points? or 5k points?

    Well i then what i would do is make sure you take the different value of everything you turn in a charge the for the points accordingly, so if you turn in a 200k cursed artifact then sell the 5k points for 200k and if you turn in a dragon slayer then sell the 5k points for 5k. Just make sure you keep all your tickets in seperately marked chests so you know what you need to charge for each one, you can buy a chest engraving TOOL to help aid you in this !!

    You will never definitively set a value on anything, engraved in stone. Value is set ont on something inherent in an object itself, though that may create a baseline market worth. Value is based upon the need and desire of the individual doing the buying. "One mans' junk is another mans' treasure."
    Someone who may balk at paying several million gold pieces for an artifact, might just pay more on some "worthless", non-useable piece of house decor. The items' final price always lies in the eyes of the buyer.

    i think that there will be a few items in the spring cleaning that will be quite useful to siege, but unfortunately so much of it is geared to a collector and deco peopel

    A big question is which things will have value? The upcomming armor sets look nice but they are alot of items. If Sherry every works as advertised She would be nice to have. The ring/bracelet set are very nice. The scrolls are nice if one is lucky enough to get useable ones - the first one I got was for item id (talk about totally useless). Someone during the first round put a value of 40 gold per point and gladly gave me 200k for 5000 points. Later after round 2 came out they commented that points were probably worth 20 gold each.

    50 gold a point ... thats where i draw the line .

    above that ill hold on to it figuring that cursed arti is worth more than the turn in value.

    some things like the older chrismass present stuff . solstice candles for instance, are worth considerably more than a stupid candy cane .. but turn in value is still the same points ... guess i wont be turin in the candles iether.


    and i think its dropping ... 50 today . maybe 40 soon . depends how many items hit the fan when stage 3 kicks in

    The Merchants game is always bid and ask pricing.
    Comparison such as what you are using need not apply!
