Hell if I know Posted Image

Since I started, I've pulled all of my stuff off the market, and I've just been periodically checking the market. It's been settling down pretty quickly, mostly due to people flooding the market (since I put my price up, about twenty new ones were posted; everyone's looking for a quick buck). I'm just playing the waiting game. Worst case scenario, I've found some place to invest the money I make from RSing. Best case, I make some cash off it.

(yes, I know the real worst case is my account getting frozen. I'm not going to consider that a possibility)



Have the items that you invested in deflated due to the attic thing? A lot of mine has :(.

Get frozen. Its a liberating feeling to know that you have nothing to lose as you start on another account.

Nice. TNT doesn't regulate concentrations of items in SDBs when searching for people who hoard and inflate :o?


Really? then Im jamming all of my items into the SDB the moment I start Hoarding.

I've never done it before so I don't know for sure :p.
Seems that that's how people are doing it though....

well, if you really think about it, it makes more sense then putting it all in a gallery. Then the items dont appear at all when searched, so others don't know how many you are holding. In fact they wont know that your hoarding anything if you keep it in your SDB.

The items I'm investing in are basically retired. Again, it's mostly for fun, but the item I've chosen should at least hold their value, if not increase over time.

yeah, retired items are bound to increase, no matter how you look at. Its just that some Retired items increase faster then others. Retired books will increase in price over time a lot faster then say retired plushies, which might take forever to increase in price.

If you are going to inflate right now, try to avoid anything with a rarity under 101 because the Attic is going to deflate prices for R100 and under.

Add this to the OP? This is definitely a good thing to keep in mind, maybe put this under the "can be inflated" thing, noting that the market can potentially be flooded by any of these items ;)

he's right. plushies are a fail. Ive been playing with one for months and it is only worth double what it was..which isn't much. I have over 5000 of them though :)

I'm thinking of hoarding Relic paint brushes.. I found some sellers for 9m (8m below TP price). Do you guys think its worth it?

Someone want to hoard with me :p?

That's about the gyst of it, although it may be slightly oversimplified. It's fairly well laid out in the opening post.

Check the Item Database. It's not too hard to filter your search; look for rarity 180.

No, just 180. 200 and 250 are "artifacts"

what he forgot to mention is that it is better to select an item to inflate that is oh higher rarity. Something like an r98 is ideal for this type of inflating also i've successfully done this with seasonal items. I try to choose items that look like they could easily be on the market and do that. Give it a try.
