We Need More Writers!
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 #3: Unidentified Dyes
Now at first glance these don't appear to be worth flipping. In almost all cases, the day you read this tip and check the price, you will actually lose money trying to perform the flip. What you have to do instead is buy on Monday and sell on Friday. Seems crazy, but the price really does change a lot each week. This week, just prior to Lost Shores patch, Unidentified Dye went from 4 silver on Monday to 7 silver on Friday. Since they sell almost instantly after posting, even for the current lowest seller rate, that's a pretty easy way to make gold. These also change during major holidays and events when more people are playing. I think that seasons play a big roll as well. Everyone wants orange for Halloween, white/red/green for Christmas, etc. Some would rather gamble than buy individual dyes, and I think that the bot ban also is contributing to increased dye prices.
