    Shopkeepers price hike

    I am searching for an explanation for the recent price increase for shopkeepers from around 2k to 3k ped. It seems to come down again right at the moment but still too few sales to say whether it's a trend. Is there someone who observed this item more closely and willing to provide some context?

    They were around 3k price a few years ago. Perhaps someone who bought at that price resold to one of their friends or alts to stick around same price which inflated it back up.

    Shops and shopkeeper prices are always fluctuating randomly up or down depending on the buyer and seller.

    Mindark says they are after stopping market manipulation but it happens ALL THE TIME EVERY SINGLE DAY in this game.

    Mindark is always screwing with estates... remember when calypso apartment hallways had item points? Someday I fully expect them to limit to 2 or three shopkeepers per estate max.

    Nothing fishy there just a lot of people opened new shops and needed a lot of shopkeepers, demand was high supply quite low and there you go.

    Thanks. I have no reason to assume foul play at this time, just curious. The question is directed to those who kept track of this particular item more closely than I did, possibly been in the market for one and therefore HAVE EVIDENCE for their observations.

    There is nothing fishy in the price of shopkeepers. It is something i do track on a quarterly basis and the recent upsurge from 2k to 3k happened on the back of some robust demand. There has been a significant increase in shop sales and usage since the armatrix line of weapons/amps came into place. One of those crafters who has purchased i think 15+ shopkeepers himself ( Lukasz) has posted here already.

    Its a very good trend that we are having currently in EU and hopefully MA realise how beneficial (L) economy is for a game touted to be an RCE.

    Yes agreed there has been a big surge in new shops with no change in supply

    Would some (L) shop keepers be a terrible thing? Or even better a wee increase in supply.

    Different angle, from a shopowner who owns many shopkeepers. And here is the context that enlighten as opposed to leaving you in the dark holding your tail.

    There are (M) & (F) Shopkeepers. The Prettier the (F), the more expensive. Pretty bod, curves, titties bum and face, with a fitting hairstyle to boot. Thats worth the 3K.

    Fat ugly (M) shopkeeper, around the 2K peds.

    Not just practical, but estetics also play a role.

    My Magurgs on Aakas Island drop shopkeepers.
