As I don't have the GC to buy the latest EI Bundle for the azuremella (and a couple other of the EI's being offered), I decided to go through my inventory and sell off some items that I don't use. Most aren't worth a whole lot, so you can imagine my surprise when I clicked on Lil' Gargy and read that the average marketplace price was over 1 million and rising. I was giddy with the thought that an item I've never used could bring me enough to not only get my azuremella but also leave me with enough left over to grab an item or two on my wishlist. I went from blaugh to gonk and then to scream when I went to sell it and found that the lowest buy price was 23,000! Should've known not to count my chickens before I saw the buy price. lol

So... has this ever happened to you? Is there a way fix the tease that is the average price?

        I think that happened to me once when I saw that the Stupendous Strawberry was 400k, but the buy price was actually 20k. xD;

        I don't think there's any way to fix it.

Should be bannable IMO.

inb4 'free market'. no. shaddup.
It's quite a shame, yes, but....Well, when you're going to buy that item, and you find the price is lower then the average buy price, it's definately a blaugh moment.

Though, when you want an item and it has a lowered average marketplace price... yet everyone lists for much much higher... waiting for someone to sell a little lower can be a challenge.

I'm super pissed at the Monochrome Keido right now.
I sell it, thinking it won't inflate past 3.1m...

Last time I checked, its 4.5m..
And I want it back.

But seriously, this happens to me all the time. I'm like, wow, my item is worth how much now? And I'm all excited that maybe I can make a profit off of this item I really don't care much for, and then I find that no, it's really still worth 10k, not the 500k LMP listed. Or the opposite happens and this awesome item I'm questing has a really low LMP, but it's still actually the same high a** price I'm saving up towards (or even worse, it's inflated by a mil or more).
dese headphones in the market were like 50k, thank god my friend gifted me them, now they're around 10k, i'm like wow

Well, I used to be fooled by the Average market price.

As a general rule, I don't make any decisions of the sort until I know what the lowest buy price is.
