Hi,

I've started looting a few items lately with low is Mark up and I've just been TTing them.

As a general rule anything under 110% I just TT as it's too much hassle for me to bother looking for a buyer (not a re seller who tries to pay 101% for everything) or paying the AH fees.

Things I have TT'd recently include:

Various kobold armor pieces where the mark up was +1 or so.
Some mind force chips with 105% mark up
Several opalo Rubios and similar crappy guns and b101 amps.
Most materials eg. animal oil, wool, hides, extractor etc.

What sort of stuff do you send to TT heaven?

It's different for mining, but on Caly, pretty much only Crude Oil and Growth Molecules get TT'd. The cost to refine oil + auction fee is often higher than what people are selling it for on auction, so it doesn't make much sense to try that unless you have a shop. Other planets have resources that are too hard to sell, but you should be able to get a little bit of MU out of most.

I TT 1 ped of Nova = you do the math

For real though , anything under 103% - which is about almost everything.
Even if it's somewhat over, but I have under 5 or even 10 peds worth then it's not worth it.
If I spend 46 pec to sell on auction for the chance at 1 ped mu, then i'm "risking" 46 pec to gain 54 pecs - not worth IMO.
I've spent a lot of money in this game, but my storage is pretty damn empty - I don't hoard stuff anymore cause I got sick of sinking money in this black hole.

Well depends,
I usually storage everything above 102% and watching trade channels and there is always somebody who is buying,but i dont bother spamming channels to try sell all those crap.But sometimes its worth waiting,if u have those extra peds on your card.
Every earned ped is more ammo for you -)

My noble opinion xP

The tt is your enemy.

If you can't sell something because the stack is too low, keep hoarding.
If you can't play because of that, don't play. If you can't do that because you're an addict, deposit, but keep the stack.
I play with a fixed budget each month. If Mindark decides my loot is going to be terrible, then I simply don't play the rest of the month. If Mindark decides every multiplier is a glowball/hof, then I simply keep hoarding.

Exceptions: (which logically still fall under the tt is your enemy)
The only time I tend to tt stuff, is when my society calls me for a society hunt, and I don't have the ped. I value friendship with my soc mates higher than the stack.

For items I sell, they go on the AH or in my shop. If they don't sell, then (depending on the item) I tt it.

used to TT mostly anything if I wanted to free up some ped since I don't regularly deposit as much as I used to. That has cost me in markup a lot of times. I've probably TTed more full sets of gremlin armor and 5b to go with it than anyone else in game over the years, but each time that was done (once I actually used a bank to save the gremlin on the rarer parts) it was for some major investment... latest example was when I bought my shop. There's been a few other times I did similar in the past when some big investment opportunity with limited time to make the investment came in to play...

Typically, if I can help it, shrapnel is all that gets TTed and that's only when armor needs repair or melee weapons or even guns need a repair and deposits aren't happening that month.

Moving things through space, even stackable things, isn't as risky as some make you believe it is. It is a risk, but it's a calculated one, especially if you know which hours of the week to log in when it's highly unlikely pirates are going to be there.

That risk actually kind of makes it fun. Never will forget how damn nervous I was transporting all those alpha cards back to Arkadia in my unarmed quad back then, lol...

Nothing really growth molecules and kirtz, but i dont mine them anyway. Having a shop helps a lot as i put stuff in there and build up a stack and will sell for at least 1 ped. If crafting explovices i might tt them, but normally ul compont bps that drop.

Depends on your playstyle. I tt almost everything and only stack very specialised. I prefer math of what I sacrifice vs what I gain, while keeping in highest regard my time and my bankroll.
