Post Re: =Price Checks= [Tomes]
I price all my skill tomes at 500g, and the leet tomes between 7k to 10k depending on what the market is doing.

My reason for 500g is it is half way to the 1k costs to buy a skill directly from the skills merchant... I make 500g, the buyer saves 500g... seems fair. I can see no reason to pay 1k for a skill tome when I can go straight to the skill guy and buy the skill for the same amount without the extra step of trading.

Even at 600 or 700g, I find my time spamming looking for a seller worth more than the 300 to 400g saved... I go straight to the skills merchant.

one person's opinion ;)

Tomes can be tricky to price. There are a lot of factors involved. About half the time when I list an Elite tome here some jerk will leave a comment on the auction, "8k!!!! That's stupid! Only lazy people pay 8k. Just buy a cap sig for 1k!" Similiarly, I see folks selling normal tomes for 900-950 with the logic that it's less than the skills trader. It just doesn't work that way. The old laws of supply and demand work here. Farmers demand perfect builds now and tomes are the quickest way to get them.

I think the main reason that Elite tomes sell well is because folks want a specific build up and running NOW so they can get thru the beginner areas quickly or so they can complete a farming build. They may plan to cap the skill but discover that it's only cappable in the Realm of Torment or Deep Luxon territory and they don't want to waste time going thru a whole campaign for 1 skill.

Monk tomes have traditionally sold well above 1k although the price has fallen recently to about 1k. This is mainly because they are in demand for the 55 builds. Folks create a monk just to 55 farm with and they don't want to waste time travelling to the various skill trainers, so they buy tomes as soon as the character is created. A 55 monk can make back the investment quickly. Ele tomes are also in demand for farming builds and so they are priced higher too.

Monk tomes (and Rit tomes) are also harder to get than other tomes and this pushes up their prices. If you want to farm warrior tomes, then you find a pack of warriors near a town go kill them all solo in hard mode. Same with ele tomes, ranger tomes, mesmer tomes, etc. When's the last time you found a mob of monks? Or Rits?

The reverse is also true. Assassin tomes are easily farmed in the raptor cave. We all hit that cave over the weekend for pie and cider. And during the grog weekend. And for trick or treat bags. And for Shamrock Ale. And don't forget forget the cute little chocolate bunnies. And just to farm up some dye or gold during non-event hours. The result is a lot of assassin tomes on the market. A LOT! If you need assassin tomes you can find them cheap in the 10 cent bargain bin. (And don't even bother trying to sell those 10 copies of Claws of the Broodmother in your inventory. Just merch 'em or give 'em to a newbie assassin.)

The prices are based on the supply available, which means the number of people farming X or Y, while 80% of people farm X the other part (20%) is farming Y, if X is Monk tomes, and Y is Elementalist tomes, obviously the Monk tomes will be much more cheaper, exactly like Assassin and Mesmer tomes, Assassin Tomes from raptors, and Mesmer Tomes from Spectral Vaettir, no news here. Obviously you can (try) sell for more, but people who know the available supply for sure won't pay more than what they are worth. ;)

This charecter hits a lot of whats wanted save one thing, shadows.

With a MUR, the price on this should be around 700. But Ive seen a 8 shadowed fighter going for 750, so right now, 500 is what you could expect.
