    Seasonal ring prices

    After the 27th Xmas 2019 ring dropped I'm watching with amazement at all the extremely high prices people still ask (and pay) for seasonal rings.

    How can it be that after SOOO many dropped rings the prices are still so inflated?
    You can hardly call seasonal rings rare anymore.
    Nor do they make you any of your invested money back.

    So, why do people still pay that much for a ring?
    With loot 1.0 I could understand why, but with loot 2.0 I really don't.

    Also I wonder, do people actually care when MA will add decay to the rings (as they stated in the rings description)?
    What will happen with the price of rings when they would decay?
    Sure, decay won't be added yet, because that would kill the last incentive to open boxes, so MA will wait for that until everybody is wearing one.
    But long term, the rings are bound to lose their values.

    So, why would I want to pay 25k for a ring that's dropping like flies???

    Maybe someone can explain?

    yes, 27 rings with 5%LS.
    Next season it will be a 6% LS ring.
    and in 2025 you will have 25% LS rings.

    But, how will LS make me my 25k back?

    The idea is that the ring will not lose a lot of value over time, so you get your 25k back when you sell it.
    The value gained is in the 5% LS you get as long as you own it.

    But I agree it's a crazy price for 5% LS

    wondering

    0% help for dps/dpp wise(ofc you can do more damage without healing urself, thats not point)
    ring only provides sustainability 30hp,lifesteal etc.

    x-mas 19 5% lifesteal
    25% evade,dodge,jamming,30hp

    mayhem m-matrix alpha,beta,gamma,delta
    5,6,7,8% lifesteal 10,12,16,20% evade/dodge ability

    most time i grind melee weapons(bralwer,short,longblades)
    m-matrix amp can easily replace those lifesteal buff/sustainability
    im so satisfied with halloween19, but need to buy x-mas 17,18ring(26~28k?)
    and x-mas 19 is 25k now??

    back to the topic 25k for Da Defensive Ring? good luck with sales

    xmas 2015 seems better than xmas2019(if someone have xmas17,18 on right hand def 19 is better)

    most hunter want to kill mob before reaching them
    whats lifesteal for? where does 25k value comes from?

    If someone thinks it isnt worth they should avoid buying at that price .

    Some rings will save little defence cost but thats not a fact after loot 2.0 but can help you hunt beyond your actual ability , more dps faster ped cycle, etc but at the end its personal choise of ring and what they are willing to pay.

    About decay in future ? When people can buy pills for 25 ped , it wont matter much.

    And this is exactly what I doubt will happen.

    Why would the price stay the same if so many keep dropping EACH event?
    4 events per year, thats like 4x25= 100 rings per year.

    There will litterally be hundreds of rings available.
    How can they ever keep their value?

    I can agree, if rings stay rare, they could possibly keep their value, but rings will become everything but rare with so many drops.

    And each event they will be a little bit better, making the earlier rings lose value even more.

    And what about if rings would get decay? How would that affect the price?

    Yeah, thats pretty obvious, if you think it isnt worth it you shouldnt buy it.
    I was brought up in this game that you should invest in gear to be able to profit.
    But that's the point, it won't help you profit.
    I even think the opposite is true.
    Hunting above your level because of ring I think is asking for even more loss instead of profit.

    Sure, there's always people who dont care shit about money since they have loads of it.
    But judging by the amount of rings being sold, is everybody here a bloody millionaire or what?

    I could understand buying a super eco 100k+ setup in loot 1.0, but I don't understand that part in loot 2.0.

    What am I missing here?

    I have 2 good rings and im capped in both focus blow and reload speed without pills. Do they make a difference outside of mayhem events? i dunno, but atleast i know i did everything humanly possible to break even. If i had shit gear i would most likely blame the losses on that.

    And, did you break even with that super combo?

    And how would 5% LS have changed that result?

    Sold every last bit which has markup and refused to continue hunting without cycling it all through the market?
