just a useful hint to share with everyone: If you are buying at highest buyer price and want to know what is the minimum price for sale, you have to multiply your buy price by 1,1765 which is the rounded reciprocal of 0,85.
Very cool tip Manola! I never thought of doing this so thank you!
Here's a quick example of what Manola is talking about:
2 Gold * .85 (fees) = 1.7 gold
1.7 Gold * 1.1765 = 2.0005 gold
It's not perfect, but it's damn close. Just another way to calculate profit if you pick up an item and want to know what to sell at to make a minimum profit.
For example, if I buy an exotic for 3 gold on a buy order and the current price is 10 gold, I need to undercut pretty heavily. So I will take 3 gold and multiply by 1.1765. That gives me a total of 3.5295 gold. So if I want to make a profit then I need to sell for at least 3.53 gold. Now I can confidently undercut without having to run a bunch of numbers and multiply by .85 until I get close to 3.53. I know it right away!
