"I do actually have a question this time. I understand the
idea and concepts for flipping pretty well (buy low, sell high, seems
easy enough), but there's one thing that gets me caught up every time I
think about it: How much do I buy?
Items like Sigils and Fine crafting materials for example get traded pretty slowly in my experience, for example.
you have any tips for figuring out how much of an item to buy? I know
I'm not technically losing money from outstanding buy orders, but I also
know that money sitting there doing nothing in the form of a buy order
isn't being very helpful at all.
Long term experience is key. I know that I can buy 100 low level armor/weapons at a
time and sell them all within a day or two. But I can only sell 1 rare
dye, exotic sigil, etc of each at a time.
That being said, buy
orders should be placed because you will eventually sell the item for a
profit. Can't just look at it as a money in money out right now kind of
situation. If an exotic sigil goes on "sale" for super cheap and I know I
can sell all 100 in the next month for a profit, then I buy all 100.
Yes, I can only sell one at a time, but think of yourself like walmart
