    [Tutorial]Finding Prices

    Post by shergold on Sun 20 Mar - 2:38

    I thought i should make this as alot of people keep asking for the prices of items not knowing how to find the prices for themselves. Creating Flip price threads are pretty pointless unless they ever updated every 5 minutes atleast which isn't going to happen.

    Finding Buy/Sell prices
    Firstly, we are going to find the sell price of the item, to do this we will buy the item for 50% over the mid/market price. It doesn't have to be exact, it just has to be high enough that the item buys instantly.

    To find the buy price of the item, we will then sell the item on the GE for around 50% under the mid/market price so the item sells instantly.


    cheers You found the buy and sell price yourself!

    Like someone said before, always add some gp's while buying and remove some while selling for faster buy and sell rates. Razz
    And always check if you'll make enough profit. As you can see in the Rune scimitar example, you will only make 50 gp profit ea, thats 5k total profit so not worth it.

    Nubs Ftw, its called an example...? The guide is called "Finding Prices" not what items make better profit, the item is random and is just used to illustrate how to find prices, nothing more.

    I wasn't blaming you or something, it were just some tips for other people who don't know how this works.

    If people needed a pictured guide to understand this then they may aswell give up flipping now!

    On the other hand you've made it very very very clear, and i suppose this could be useful!
