the Galaxy Vest is pretty sweet and for only 4k, you really have nothing to lose picking one up biggrin

It's quite a shame that its beautiful red counterpart, the Nebula Vest is nowhere near its price.

I still can't believe that Regalinovo is so cheap now. It was 1-2mil at one time and now it's 100-200k. I love the items on it so much.

Speaking of that, I like how it goes with Order of Atlantis, another nice item at only 24k right now.

I stalk the ei's untill they go under 100k and then snatch them up smile
when the 3rd gen of something comes out the prices tend to plummet dramatically then go back up to near where they were before (agape was a good example of this gen 3 was selling at 750k right when it came out and now its up to 2.5million....I am so glad I grabbed one while it was still below 1 mill)


the one I cant belive right now is le carosel 3 is only 60k, thats less than some of the old crappy ones from years past

Wow, I know recolors can vary a lot in price, but this seems really crazy, espcially since they're both single pose items. I've been trying to figure out why and all I can think of is that red/black is a much more popular color combo then purple/gold. I just didn't think it was more than 100k more popular.

Now to be on topic. I've been looking at pets, honestly just lamenting over the fact that I'll probably never have a Ewenicorn, but there are a lot of really cute, fairly cheap options for all you animal lovers. Here are these market place offerings all at or below 10k.

User ImageSven the Penguin- has both a cute grown up penguin and an adorable baby penguin, with on-your-head pose. 10k

User ImageDandy Lion- this item has been around for years, I think it was part of one of the first RIGs released through the cash shop, which is probably why its so cheap, over looked in the flood of items that came after it. Its adorably cute and only 10k.

User ImageSisky the Wombat- I had never heard of this item but its pretty cute, very cute considering its only 4k. The brown color may not apeal to everyone, but I have noticed a lot of people using brown based color schemes lately.

User ImageHoliday Cardinal- Okay, there's really no good reason this item is so cheap. It has a cute bird, its not overtly x-mas/winter themed so it can be used for other things, too, it has a cloak that comes with, which is in the ever popular red/black color scheme. In fact there's an MC with a similar pose that is going for 40k, which while not that expensive either, is still nearly 10 times what this is selling for.

User ImageBenny the Puppy- this item is no secret, just very cute and inexpensive. Its got one listing at 8k significantly below all the other listings, so get it while its hot.

User ImageRock Puppy-Seriously, what has the world come to? This item is cute, among my favorite MCs, and a little funny too, depending on your humor. So why is it only 9k? I don't get it, but I guess its just a good thing for you guys.

User ImageKaya the Cat- Another cute item that won't break the bank, though the tannish brown coloring may be hard for some people to work with.

Tricky Treasure

File this under "not necessarily cheap but a cheaper knock-off"...if you're dying for that space skin in Padmavati's Lotus, Stellar Birth has a comparable version for about a third of the price (130k)

Fuseling is another pet that I like, with some nice hair and a lot of listings in the 10k-15k range!

Fellowship Armor: Blue armor shoulderpads and a blue tabard. Currently around 15k.


both of those have jumped back up. Do you guys ever wonder if some people watch this list ot find the next big thing to inflate in prices? Those posts with those links weren't that long ago, and already the cheapest ones on buy it now are @ 30k'ish.

Oh, definitely. There's always a bit of a price boost applied to any item posted in this thread; after all, the whole point of it is to point out relatively cheap, forgotten items to the public to make them known again. Most of time it's just a harmless price bump, but some do get "sniped" by users attempting to artificially inflate the prices; from what I've seen, that usually only happens with really cheap items (under 20k) with very few listings. Don't worry, if you wanted those items I'm sure they'll go down eventually. They're crazy if they think users are going to pay 100k+ when the graphs show it A) selling for consistently less for a prolonged period of time and B) never before even coming close to the selling price they're asking now. Legion Armor, specifically, seems to fluctuate between 10k and 20k over the course of a year so anything over 30k is just ridiculous. But they're perfectly willing to try; that's the free market. As for Fellowship Armor, the year long graph shows that it usually sells around 30k so while yes, it has gone back up from the original bargain of 15k, it's not an unreasonable price without precedent.

There's very little you can do to "avoid" the issue. At best, if you notice the same people listing items in this manner, you can add them to your ignore list so that if you ever post items in the thread they can't see it (barring others quoting you).

I mean, a lot of these are older RIG items with relatively few listings, and people tend to naturally price their item only a little below the next listing, so with increased interest, of course some of these things will be snapped up. How much of it is increased demand & how much is opportunism? I don't really know. I think both of these factors come into play when explaining the price spike. Which reminds me, when I have a bit more gold & there are listings again, I need to get myself a Winner's Circle.

I can't get over how cheap Daisy's Light Hair and Daisy's Dark Hair have become. I remember when they were released they were several hundred k each, but now both consistently have listings under 100k, with the light version sometimes as low as 70k. Each one has 5 different colours of wig, which have really nice bangs, so even if you don't like the back/bows too much, they look very cute under a hat. (For those who can't afford Agape, a Gardening Bandana underneath a hat gives you a similar effect for only a few k).

If you like cute things to hold, O-Tea-P has a tea cup, slice of toast, book, a pastry and teapot for only about 10k.
