No problem. In loot 2.0, chasing MU% is more important than ever before, if you're after long term tt self-sustainability.Thanks MsPudding for the effort I will try to do as you say.
Great suggestion. Every player has their place in EU. Resellers get a bad rap, but it's unnecessary. They play their role in the economy like everyone else. Nothing wrong with people wanting to stand around and buy stuff, at least in my book. They offer a service and it is 100% optional. If you don't like "resellers" you don't have to trade with them, but they definitely server a purpose.While it is not a popular option for veterans of the game, and I will most likely catch some flack for even mentioning it, there are a handful of resellers that will pretty much buy any loot, although at a much lower mark-up than what you could achieve yourself through your own connections and auction listings. But connections do take time to make, and the auction can be quite costly for new players that are still figuring out how the economy and the Auction house mechanics work. So selling to one of these players may be a better option in the short term until you learn more. They will also buy any size stack so it is helpful to newbies that don't have large PED cycles. Stack sizes matter at auction.
You can find these resellers advertise on #calytrade, typically you wont go long without finding one of their posts. Most of them sit at Twin peaks near to the teleporter.
OP asked for options for selling his hunting loot. He said he was having trouble finding buyers. Not sure why my advice was so terrible... but ok.This is the worst advice that can be given.
I'm not judging the person who gives it, but the MA who put its heads in their asses and expects people to deposit large sums given that there is no working economy.
Too many "family members" are abusing the 1-account rule.
This puts pressure on the whole economy by P2P trading.
The consequence is sales in the forum...
The manipulation in AH is a consequence of the avoidance of Sales / Orders in AH by the majority...
And let's not forget that this is an auction and not a trade house.
The neglect by MA of the Economic part, which has the highest priority in the game, are the reasons above.
P2P is not an economy, and should not be encouraged.
Infrastructure... easily accessible shops... P2P doesn't have to be what it is.
We need a working trading environment, not AH and P2P trade.
Don't take this as a personal attack. I like the game, but I don't like the situation it is in.
The topic is for 400 ped, not 40k or 400k.
The second sentence is the answer to your question.OP asked for options for selling his hunting loot. He said he was having trouble finding buyers. Not sure why my advice was so terrible... but ok.
There are two critical topics I am trying to take part in.It is surely unpleasant to think you need to sell the low % items to TT since they add up to several thousands of peds over an year from my calculation and timeplay a day.Kaiser sorry if I posted in wrong section through not sure if I should say this since I do sell stuff and that is pretty real.People don't be angry or fight over it.Peace and love.
Here is where resellers can offer a service, the quantity from a single hunter can be too small for a crafter to be interesting. As a serious crafter you don't want be dependant of many different sellers and having to do multiple trades to get the desired amounts. This is where reseller can be usefull, they buy the small amounts from the hunters, and sell the big stacks to crafters.The best option for you is to find a final buyer, which is not easy for a new player due to the above factor.
Resellers have their role in the economy, although i dislike certain resell activities.

Hunter happy, he can unload small amounts. Maybe a bit under MU, but better then TT (and no auction fee)
Crafter happy, he don't need to search the market and spend his time on trading
Reseller happy, he can ask a little fee
Maybe it's due to a bad choice of wording, but what do you mean by this? I think we agree that we both dislike some reselling activities that take place in EU, but it is a fact that resellers can add value for newcomers and small hunters by offering their service buying hunting loot especially when the quantities are too low to sell on itself and would otherwise end up being tt'd.The majority take advantage of the ignorance of the new ones, so I do not accept such opinions.
Deemer what are you saying? Are you suggesting we remove all player to player trading?The topic is open due to a problem of 400 ped, wake up!
Let's see the composition of this prey and determine what will be its real profit... how many of them would you take as a reseller and how many will remain for the person who risked his own money for this loot.
My words are well chosen. P2P should be removed. EU need better trade environment, without re-tardes..
All good, I tend to be blunt due to some cognitive behavioral issues I have. Nothing personalIt is surely unpleasant to think you need to sell the low % items to TT since they add up to several thousands of peds over an year from my calculation and timeplay a day.Kaiser sorry if I posted in wrong section through not sure if I should say this since I do sell stuff and that is pretty real.People don't be angry or fight over it.Peace and love.
I have moved this thread to "General Economy Discussion" instead, as it is not a direct sales thread, but rather a discussion on the viability of selling a certain item (or group of items). OP, if you wish to create a sales thread on this, please include which items are for sale in the post and make it clear that it is a sales thread.
As for the rest of the discussion; I have removed some posts that were veering into 2.2, 2.8 and 3.2 territory. Please consider the rules and try to keep the discussion polite and on topic.
This is exactly the place to post this.
