30 Markets in 30 Days: #10

This 30 day series of posts will showcase my absolute favorite items to flip in Guild Wars 2. If you need help identifying what's worth playing, or just need ideas of where to get started, then this is the place for you. Also keep in mind that a lot of the items worth flipping are also worth crafting!

Market #10: Strong Ring (level 44)

There's always a market for the weaker version of people's favorite items. This is because players usually can't afford the best and therefore are content to settle for second place over and over again when purchasing gear. While leveling, green upgrades are usually huge increases because players wait so long between each new piece. At level 44, many still have a sub level 20 item in at least one of their trinket slots. The Strong Ring can usually double your investment.

Remember to check out my Guild Wars 2 Gold Guide if you're lost.

For the rest of the 30 markets, check back regularly and look at the "30 Markets in 30 Days" label on this site.

    Robin Bergstrom, the question is not how to flip and item but what and when.

    Since the Strong ring has just been announced as an item that you can flip, a lot of people searching for these tips will have driven the price up through constant undercutting of each other. The secret is to utilise sites like GW2Spidy to recognise changes in an items market then speculate on whether or not it will rise again.

    A popular item for me is blueberries, I have been buying and selling hundreds of thousands of these for the past 2 months, for a minimal profit of 2s 25c per 250. However, I also had 12k of them stockpiled in my bank, and with them recently rising to 30c each I have made a significant amount of profit.

  1. Oh ok, so this is like a way for Marcko to earn more money, buying very much of an item then posting it here and see the price rise and then sell for high price :D?

    Now you're thinking Robin :)

    I wasn't doing that, but you absolutely could. I post at 8:00 AM EST each day, so you could read it real quick, buy a lot, and then relist haha. Let me know if it works for you :)

    Except that Markco will have already bought up a massive stock of these favorite trades at the low rate, so he will be the one on top. The last schmuck to read his call then buy it will be paying the premium/inflated price, followed by every non-speculator who legitimately needs the item in question.

    It is beyond unethical, and he is the ultimate Insider Trader.
