    Yen snaked 7 out from under me for an elder piece, was trying to get the last piece for a bowstring set. Call me Zorg because I, am VERY, DISAPPOINTED :(

    Yeah, I'm generally a "let people decide what they want" kind of gal, but uh... seems like a real waste for the price.

    I guess she really, really wanted that piece?

    All the elder dragon bits come up regularly on market if you're willing to pay enough... and enough is a lot less than that auction went for.

    Madness!

    For what the auction bid was, she probably could have bought an entire Elder Dragon set.

    which piece?
  • DaeirDaeir AustraliaMember Posts: 6,288 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    Maybe the joke is she asked for a max level piece of one of the stupidly uncommon types? Yen's never struck me as "bad" with money at any point, so there must be a reason behind it.

    Secret strategy, Yae asked for a level 9 blue dragon scale.

    Technically, I think you can combine up to a maximum of level 20? So I guess it depends on whether the winner is/was allowed to ask for a specific level of piece or not.

    We have a winner!

    It would have been funny to get a level 20 and corner the market, but no, it's just a level 7.

    Seems odd if someone was allowed to ask for a level 20 of anything. That's over 52,000 level 1's.

    You also did get a bunch of credits generously donated to you for posting on forums. I bought most of the rare bits for Aerek's set at 5cr, raised to 7cr max the last few because I was getting desperate.

    Yea, Blue scale is so rare. I paid a few for more than 10cr, I don't wanna quote the exact price not to disrupt the market, but yeah, they are so darn rare. Same to gold tooth. But @Sarathai keeps getting them I don't know how he bashes, I bought the most from him.

    Sure, 5 million, but I wanted something worth over 8, arguably more :(

    Ah well, history flips. Last credit auction I participated in I snaked in a bid about five seconds before it ended and got the ship in a bottle. That was not nearly as devastating as Yen would have won -two- if I hadn't, but ugh. Gold auctions are a pain in the dick, can we please have credit auctions again? I've got to find out how to turn this gold back into credits.

    It's almost like that's what gold auctions were designed to do.
