OP  10/21/12 9:00:57 AM#1

Title pretty much sums it up.

For those that do not play. The trading post won't allow a player to place an item cheaper than you can sell to a vendor.

So why do 1000's of players place items on the market at the lowest price allowed (plus pay posting fee) when they can sell immediately at that price to any vendor?

Until I actually thought about it like a normal person I was doing exactly this and seeing my item placed alongside 700 people selling the exact same item at the lowest price possible.

Since I have grown a brain, I now salvage for mats or sell immediately to a vendor.

The crew at arenanet who monitor the economy probably can't believe how stupid people are.  At least now, there will be 1 less idiot posting on the trading post.

So who is more stupid?

ANet for making vendors buying your stuff or players placing orders at minimal price?

Or maybe its just easier to sell your stuff on the spot while out in the wilds than it is to keep going back to town.

Exactly my thoughts on why ppl do it.

Yes, but does anyone actually buy all that crap? I don't believe anyone in their right mind would use the TP to buy blues or whites.

Maybe, this is just a theory, that players are just using the trading post to "hold" stuff until they get back to town - what with the bag-space limitations & all that?

The only single benefit is being able to move items out of inventory but all vendors regardless of type purchase all items and there is always one within throwing distance.  I have sold a lot of player made items on TP but 90% are yellow. 

However, I do buy a ton of mats so its better to salvage on the spot, send mat to your bank to clear space, or sell mats to TP immediately. 

Still kicking myself for being so stupid.

Too many item drops. It seems like 1 out of 3 mobs drops an item. Couple that with multi server trading post, an waala 95% of the drops you get aren't worth more than vendor trash.

 

I guess people are paying  to dump the trash...

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

which costs more, teleporting at level 80 across an entire continent or the posting fee to clear out your bags while swimming in the middle of the ocean. hmmm.

whites? no i used it for the green + to magic find sets :) Altho it is useful near the end to buy white weapons and salvage them for ore. not very costly and easier then being chased by the Zombie Apocolypse that is Orr LOL

Never understand why people have bag space problems.  I salvage everything but greens and yellows, vendor the rest.  Its not like theres a vendor every few minutes in travel in game.

Quicker for bots to sell stuff on TP then to go to town and interupt their rounds. 

 

That and players can also take benefit, though I know its mostly bots.

I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you.

Ive been selling a lot of stuff for a buyer price.  Occasionally I put a few items up for my own auction price and they sell well enough.  Its certainly more than a vendor would give me.  I did try to salvage a few pieces down to mats, but I felt like I got less out of them than possibly selling the materials out right. 

 

I'm also caucious of crafting, and haven't really done it....yet.  I'm unsure its worth it.   In WoW for instance, selling mats and never crafting made me a rich fella.  I could just buy what I needed instead of having to waste hours crafting and this is usually what I've done with mmos.  However here, everyone can harvest materials in the wild so I don't know if this is the wisest approach with this game. 

 

I am only a level 11.  I just started playing.  If you folks have any advice I'd greatly appreciate it.  Laugh at me.  Tell me what I'm doing wrong, etc.  Again I'd appreciate advice.  If what I said sounds reasonable let me know.  If not please do the same.  Thanks in advance.

Or you could just use the instant access to the Mists to go to LA, then port your cap city for free...

Why people pay to travel across the world, when they provide a completely free method, is beyond me. You save yourself one minute of travel by porting, a trivial difference at best. It's just senseless.

I don't know. Why don't you ask Turbine how Asheron's Call 2 did with no vendors buying your stuff.

'Sandbox MMO' is a PTSD trigger word for anyone who has the experience to know that anonymous players invariably use a 'sandbox' in the same manner a housecat does.


No game is more fun than the one you can't play, and no game is more boring than the one you've become familiar with.

Getting from a location to LA is free via the Mists. Getting back to that location is not. If you want to port to a cap city for free and then walk all the way back to Orr then go for it. Most will Mists/LA then pay to port directly back to Orr I would imagine, at least it is what I do.

The last time this thread popped up here that seemed to be a common practice. Unless a player is crafting or chasing high end gear, there's plenty of cash to go around in GW2, so for some players the copper or two here and there is probably less of an issue than the inconvenience of loaded bags.

Unless you bought the item you're wishing to sell, you really aren't losing money. It didn't cost you anything to loot the item from the mob you just slayed. I'd rather lose a little bit of money to clear room in my bag by selling what I can through the AH then later run to town and sell the soulbound vender trash then make constant trips back and forth. I've found very few items I post don't get sold so far (that may change as I get higher in levels) and it may be because someone's buying all the stuff up to sell to a vender, but that's all good, it still saves me from running back and forth. I'd much rather be exploring and slaying than making trips back and forth to my killing grounds.
