Silver Pricing...

    The question of a gold:silver ratio has come up a few times. Factioners farming it would net on average 18:1

    Basing it on the average gold loot drops from Stratics, gives us...
    (all values rounded to the nearest .5)

    Ogre Lords (Min) = 600-650GP / 30SP = 20-22:1
    Wisps (CoM) = 400-500 / 20SP = 20-25:1
    Silver Serpents (TB) = 250-300 / 30SP = 8-10:1
    Daemons (SL) = 550-650GP / 30SP = 18-22:1
    -----------------
    18:1 average

    Obviously this does not factor in the ease/time to kill differences in the monsters, but that's the raw gold:silver ratio of what they drop.

    What's the right price then? (no really, what is it?)

    I think 10-1 is about right. Off of 8 regs(enough for 2 EVs) I can make 400-500 silver killing serps.

    Also keep in my the invasion is coming, and some very easy creatures are giving 20-30 silver. A group of 2-3 necros will be able to walk around wither spamming groups of 50-60 things and coming away with probably 40-50k silver an hour each.

    Don't forget faction tithe rates! You may get *no* silver! :)

    Wonder how that will factor in...

    As a first new-price on silver I'm willing to split the difference. Speedy is intent on 10:1, and someone who did math suggested 18:1.

    I have almost 90k for sale, and will sell for 14:1. This either sets the market price for lazy folks or gets me a good deal. I have no qualms about keeping my silver, it is a growing idoc trophy I have built up over the months and is fanciful to look at.

    PM me if interested.
