"Down for Maintenance"

I'm at work but word on the streets of Tyria is that the Trading Post is "Down for Maintenance" at the moment. What shall we trading post players do while we wait for the Trading Post to come back online? PLAY THE GAME. That's right, go out there and farm for your ascended gear, play the Super Adventure Box, and mess around with increasing your magic find. You can check periodically at any point in the game to see if the Trading Post is back online. Until then, enjoy the game and wait patiently like everyone else! Your huge stockpiles of materials and globs of ectoplasm will soon be very much in demand. But wait, there are actually two items worth stockpiling the moment the Trading Post comes back online!!!

Look at of the traveler's runes; it's is great set for all disciplines. Check out this screenshot:

+ 30 to all stats, + 6% critical damage, +15 boon duration, 25% movment speed, and +10% condition damage. Wow!

For those of us who just want straight power instead of such a well rounded rune set, you can try the new pirate which has +165 power, +20% might duration, +5% chance for might, and a parrot. Yarr!

What's great about the changes to these two previous magic find sets is that now they are useful to ALL disciplines. These will surely go up in price once the trading post is back online. So if you're looking for things to buy, grab of the pirate and of the traveler runes!

    Ectos are the same price still. There must be a huge influx of speculators posting their items now as "bailout."

    Yeah... It seems that Traveler runes were the better call. But hey, that's speculation for you haha.

    Pirate runes WILL NOT go up. think about it, everybody's Magic find set is null and void now, most people had 5 pirate and one traveler's/noble rune. I wondered why Pirate runes were a "good" investment. there was going to be a HUGE supply of them now, and most people don't want pure power, they want crit with it, which they did not say would be with it.

    sure, they will slowly go up, but never to where they were before the patch in my opinion

    Maybe it was not such a good idea to call for everyone to speculate as speculation is really not for the soft hearted.

    Take the globs of ectoplasm, it has been rising for a while and there are investors who have stocked up from the beginning. They can sell some of their stock for a nice profit and reduce the risk for them. As a consequence the soft hearted panic and sell off to "minimize" their loss. After both movements finish prices will start to rise and can rise very fast. Just remember that the economy doesn't settle all at once it comes with spikes in both ways, ups and downs. Just remember to not follow the croud!
