Thanks Rai for doing the leg work, that's awesome!!! Just goes to show everyone that there are tons of different bags worth investigating for profits. Just go to a website like gw2wiki and look up what items can be found in a particular bag, then buy with a buy order and experiment!

Notice that Rai didn't just do 10-25 bags, but rather 100 of them in order to get a decent sample size. The key to any bag opening is to have one item that really sells like crazy and is the most profitable. That would be the Beryls in this case, which make up 20% of the items received and sell for almost half the profit!

    Just bought 1000 bags to see what happens. Over a larger sample size I ended up with 142 Beryl Shards, making up about 1/6th of the bag. :P I still love opening bags though...such a rush.

    Numbers don't look quite right. Was TP fees included?

    More like 13s due to blessed luck of RNG, should expect 1/7 of beryl shards and not 1/5.
