I Love Arrow Carts

Now that was a good time! Dealing tons of damage to large groups of enemies, while slowing them at times as well, I had a blast playing with Arrow Carts in WvWvW last night. While I still am new to doing the objectives, I have to admit that this is a very entertaining aspect of the game. Definitely will help to get my attention back to Guild Wars 2 for more than just playing the economy.

Speaking of the economy, how about those Great Sword Skins, huh? What do you believe will happen to their price? I'll go first, then you chime in ;)

There are generally two lines of thought:

1. The price will decrease and then explode at the end of the event, due to players trying to get the skin on their own while the event is still live, then giving up and buying it themselves after you can no longer get the chests.

2. The price will balloon now, while the event is popular and people want them before the next big greatsword skin fad. Then when the event ends, nobody will want to buy the skins and the masses will forget until next year.

I believe that #1 is going to happen, but I totally can see why people would pick two or create another scenario.

Either way, I bought a lot of the skins early on in the event, and now I'm holding out for it to end before selling.

    funny enough, I used to read your blog for some time, but all the tips you share here are killing the markets. I guess you want to control the market, as you just created an inflation in price and buy orders.

    After noticing the jump in price that you can see on gw2tp website when the inflation happened, so I went around the gw2 blogs regarding tp, and you are the one talking about the inevitable to increase your own profits and making fake demand.

    You are planning on oligopoly after the event ends and make some profit the same as with the halloween shields..

    good luck.

    All I can say is I'm not trying to do that, but it doesn't matter because people either believe or they don't. I can't exactly provide evidence!

    You said buy 2 skin of each last week on previous post and now you say you bought a lot of at the begining.
    One strat for you and an other one for the others = big profit for you only

    The funny thing is that most people who read this will go buy the greatsword skin when there are plenty other super skins that will do the same!

    Anytime I said buy, I actually did buy. If my advice falls through I lose too.

    No one is forced to run markco's strategies...I always read them and think about them. Then I decide whether they sound good or not. I would never adapt a strategy without having my own thoughts about it =)

    I have spent 120g on various super skins and I am very pleased to say that as of right now if I chose to sell them (which im not going to) I would be sitting on 340g! I Think its safe to say this has been a good investment :D
    Doubling money in less than a week? Yes please!
