    Hey everyone.. quick questions here.. does anyone have a way of going about pricing magical items for sale? Do you assign values to each variable and quality? Do you have a tool? Do you just guess? I am curious to find out.

    you know the market and whats valuable. figure out how well the piece fits into overall suits and what people look for to get an idea of the worth. like 8 lmc can be the difference beween a 5 mil piece of armor and a 100 mil piece of armor. while lmc on a clean jewel, like 5 stam or 10, ssi will actually devalue it.

    I like to shop around and see what similar items sell for then price mine approximately the same. If I just want to sell it quickly, though, I put my price tag lower. But since I was using Luna shops as an example, I like to think my lower prices were a lot more realistic.

    When it comes to loot items I tend to post on Stratics first as an auction.

    Anything left I then stick on a vendor quite cheaply. After a few days I will then adjust the prices if stuff hasn't sold.

    After a week or so I just un-ravel the stuff left over that didn't sell.
