We Need More Writers!
I feel like I'm on the Mad Money show proclaiming "Buy Buy Buy" with bull noises going off in the background. Mystic Coins have gone up significantly every single day since the release of the game. I remember on day one how they were 1 copper each, and then suddenly players realized what they were for and the price broke 30 copper. Then 60, then a silver, and on and on to today's price.
But here's the thing, it looks like they are going to continue to increase as more and more players hit level 80. Players simply can't farm enough mystic coins on their own from dailies and monthlies, so they will always have to revert to purchasing on the Trading Post if they want to use the Mystic Forge.
As more players get to 80 and less are leveling up, the Mystic Coin market will continue to explode. I wouldn't be surprised if these eventually sell for 6+ silver in the coming months.
BUY BUY BUY!
If you have the extra income, consider buying 5 Mystic Coins per day for 30 days. You'll be able to track the price and participate in a little investment strategy called dollar cost averaging.
Now for sticks of butter. OMG. These things went from 1 copper vendor value to 12 copper overnight! Must be a lot of people cooking this evening! Instead of running and buying a bunch of the stuff, I would recommend waiting until next week to see if maybe the butter drops back down in price during weekdays before returning to 12 copper on the next weekend. Might be a market cycle we're witnessing, so that's what I would suggest.
Chocolate bars also went up. Do you use butter and chocolate bars together while leveling cooking? I haven't tried the discipline yet, so I don't know! Any resident cooks want to explain this one to me?
