    Ok, was off by 2k.

    I'm definitely not worthy. LOL! Course I'm not running EE content either so it's unlikely I'll ever sell at that level ever. It's mind boggling, and yet it isn't. Apparently people want some high level gear REALLY badly. I suspect this will die down after the big spenders get the items they want.

    How many items do you think you've sold so far? What is the highest amount you've sold something for on the ASAH?


    I would think this might put to bed the idea that Turbine isn't going to be making a ton of money off of this. 75K shards, if he got them all through sales, means folks spent around 114-115k thousand buying Hendrik's stuff. It also means, despite the forum calls for boycotting the ASAH, there are PLENTY of folks who are happy to use it.


    I hate to suggest it, but I also have to wonder if there were a LOT more astral diamonds out there because of *cough* loopholes *cough* that occurred in the past? There may also be players sitting on stacks of scales and stuff and now dumping them for shards to buy the stuff they actually want. I'm still surprised players are able to consolidate such a large quantity in just three days.

    Uh...if you couldn't see pixels you couldn't read anything on your screen.

    Edit: ran some quick checks, the normal obvious markers of a Shop were not present. So its either real, or a real good fake.

    Regardless of whether the 77k AS are real or not, Turbine has made sure to allow us to spend a lot more - the highest buyout price I've seen so far was 9.9 million AS. I seriously doubt anyone will buy that item or that the offer was serious, but it shows how much Turbine will let us pay if we want to.

    Assuming normal prices (no double/triple TP bonuses and no AS discounts) at the best possible rate (23k TP for 200$ and 2750 TP for 500 AS) that means Turbine allows us to spend up to ca. 470,000$ on a single item - with Turbine's cut in that case being about 140,000$ (unbound item) to 188,000$ (bound item).

    I think someone is being very optimistic about how much money the average DDO player is willing to spend.

    Yes, currently the listing fee is returned if the item is unsold.

    Yup. It's why people are posting things for 9million AS and using it as storage space.

    I wish my shop skills were good enough to have to worry about such accusations, but I have no shop skills. Heck, I can't even do a straight line in Paint! Happy I can copy/paste what I did to get this posted.

    On Thelanis, I can already see the effect on the PP AH.

    People using plat to buy up the EE items to place them on the ASAH or just dumping plat into items they may
    need at some point. 3 Day auctions coming to an end which sellers will move those items to the ASAH.

    The PP AH will soon be the dirty place to shop.
