I'm trying to figure out if it's better to buy 2 $50 'limited' items and sell them than just buy the $100 Isafril's Wings. I am not sure if I'll be able to buy the wings for a good price later on since the wings will be quite limited as well since not as many people will buy it during the sale since they'd rather spend money on other things. There is big competition for people's GC. I am unsure on how to proceed. I would like to get some extra gold in the deals but I cannot predict prices of the items.


I am banking on the fact that they'll be re-released, or could be...

It's... tricky. I'd like them myself but cannot justify spending $100, and I certainly do not have the items to sell to purchase them, along with the quests I have currently.

I feel it is too difficult to guess which items will be of high value in future... the marketplace is just too hard to guess... so I think I have to keep the wings as a thing I won't ever own smile

I really do like those wings due to the colors, but I do question their utility. I hate having too many choices. crying

How about caring less about if items will be worth a fortune in pixel currency in the future and buy items you personally enjoy?
Or am I the only one who does that nowadays?


I'm doing this more than ever now. I'm buying more for myself than for selling purposes. I don't like vending at all it's just so confusing. XD

I think they'd suit your style really well, (As would they fit with my usual base, which adds to the allure) but to be honest, for myself, I prefer the middle sized wings from alchemy over the larger ones... I wish they'd make those in red and black also!

And then there's the Butterfly Jab which I won't even be here to buy... so I've no idea what to get, and sell to make enough gold to buy that, because I don't know what it will be selling for O______O

I still don't know what I want from these...flash sales were easier to deal with...you knew the items you wanted and that was it...

i've been trying to figure this out myself
i have 5000 gc from doing offers and i'm in the process of trying to pick which item or items i'm gonna buy with it
i thought that midnight silverstene would be the best choice
but disgrace of hubris seems to be going for even more and has the bonus of being one of the items that won't be "directly rereleased" for six months.
but it might be better to buy a few of the lower priced items instead.
i think i'm going to wait and see what somber bloom looks like before deciding though

I can understand saving for something like that. I'm hoping I get paid tomorrow since it didn't go through today.

I want the Princess of the ____ items SO BADLY, but... I cannot justify 50 dollars on a pixel dressup item to myself. I just can't. So definitely no bang for my buck. If I could buy them with gold, I would, but I'd need to sell a helluva lot of my inventory.

Nope, that's my basic strategy. I do look to buy things to resale on the mp, but that's pretty much secondary to things I actually want.

That new manner they are selling on Sunday is going to be skyrocket I am sure.
Nope! Every manner in the past has plummeted! Im sure itll follow suit.

Best bang for ur buck. MoonlightSilverstene's selling for 100mil+!!

I'd totally buy one of these if someone was willing to pay 100mil for it!
