    Okay 21k is a lot for mindnet, but is that a typo on OOS plot? 14mil gold?? 1,400 credits? For a PLOT

    21k for an ability. A single ability. No matter how good, it is but a single ability.

    In the face of such, nothing else can surprise me at all.

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...


    ...But you'll always follow the voices beneath.

    I would pay 21k for evade. No questions asked, take my escrow.

    When the first major OOS land auction was had, they were 1.5k credits each. No bargaining. That's why Ellodin, Ruth, Xer and I joined forces, cos we couldn't afford that on our own and we really wanted to build a public resource.

    I now expect every OOS land auction to be around that price and am annoyed when it isn't!

    For me to pay 1.4k credits it would need to come with a pre-built mansion.

    @Trey sniped my auction out from under me while I was at work.

    Next time I know to add a few zeroes to my autobid.

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    That price for OOS housing is pretty standard, yeah.

    ...that's really quite cheap in today's market for an oos plot. 

    If that plot wasnt situated in such a terrible place to get to, it would have went up far more. Ask how much a plot in delos is worth :P

    Didn't @Lenn pay about 20m for a Delos plot last auction?

    Id sell my traders satchel for half that in a heart beat.
     

    I'll also echo the surprise at 21k for a single ability. I'm half expecting the admin to void it out of concern for the winners mental state. 
    I completely ballsed the bidding up. I bid 1005 then meant to increase it to 1050. Accidently added 1050 to my bid to make a max bid of 2055 .... Yeahhhh.

    That's auctions for you. Nothing sells for what it's actually worth, except to a few crazy people willing to pay way more than everyone else.

    Nothing is worth close to $6k in this game.

    But then you have to be a Monk. The whole point of the item - and where all of its appeal lies - is having the ability regardless of class.

    $6k is a lot different for some people to part with than others. Grats @Braver on the mindnet!

    I mean, for the unique stuff it's hard to put a value on it. As for the Mount Booster I feel I won very reasonable though, about 125-150cr to make any mount I want legendary? Not bad!

    Obviously there's a huge amount of subjectivity involved, and that's influenced pretty heavily by how much you can afford and how much you want that particular item (I know I paid more than most would consider a custom deathsight to be worth, but it was one thing I wanted more than anything else). On the other hand, there's always that thought (at least for me) of "If this was sold as a regular artefact, it wouldn't be priced anywhere close to this." You're paying a really high premium for the rarity/uniqueness of the item, not its actual effect.
