Candy Corn Profit

Written by: Flaixman.

As everyone knows, the halloween event has just finished, and have left tons of pieces of candy corn in the TP.
 
All of them costs about 17c each, what makes it 1,7 G each candy corn.

There are 2 ways of making profit, 1 fast and 1 long term.

Fast one:

By the time I'm writing this, the candy corn cob is 2g each, and the piece of candy corn is 19 copper instant buy or 15 if you make an offer, so if you manage to get 4 stacks of pieces of candy corn and convert them to candy corn cob at sonder the seller (in lions arch), you can it, you can get fast profit of the candy corn (but not that much).


Long Term:

WE have to ask a question of ourselves, What can we do with the Pieces of Candy corn and candy corn cob?

The answer is easy: 20 slot bags. But you'll say, flaixman, those bags are account bound, and you can't sell them.

And my response to that statement is that we don't want to sell the 20 slot bags, we want to keep the pieces of candy corn and the candy corn cob. Why?

1-20 slot bags costs 12g each at the trading post.
2-1 Halloween slot bag costs 3 candy corn cobs, that are 2 gold each bought instantly, or 1,5-1,6 g each. What makes each bag costs between 4,5 and 6 gold (that's 6-7,5 gold less than the others EACH ONE).
3-What it's going to happen next weeks-months? This:

Everyone who wants a 20 slot bag will stop crafting them and is going to stop buying them from the tp. What are they going to do? Buy them from candy corn cob, so the price of the pieces of candy corn and candy corn cob are going to rise much more than now, and they are going to grow fast up to the 33 c per piece of candy corn or 3g33s33c per candy corn cob (these prices are the ones that make the price of each bag 10g each). So every piece of candy corn and candy corn cob that you buy now, it's going to increase drastically it's value, so selling them some weeks-months from on now, will report you a great profit.


Another way to make instant gold is, if you have some 20 slot bags in possesion, sell them and buy some with candy corn, that will grant you 5-6 gold per bag change.

    The issue is the hidden abundance of candy corn.

    127 million was created according to ANets official ToT bag announcement, and that's ignoring already existing stocks, home instance nodes, and event nodes.

    Which is 42333 bags worth. In order for candy to actually become a net consumed item there needs to be people (1) without 20 slot bags, and (2) 10583 of these people. Remember that many people are working under the same assumption and have several million candy squirreled away.

    The good thing, is that the 20 bag slot deal won't expire, it's permanent, so slowly, the candy corn is going to go up and up always. Yes, the home instance adds some candy corn to the market, but the candy corn globbers (the gem object) are doing a great work nullifying some candy corn.

    Of course it's a question of how many candy corns are left, but it's an unlimited deal, sonder the seller will be there, so untill the bags are 10g worth candy corn, the pieces of candy corn and the candy corn cob is going to grew little by little untill they reach that mark.

    To the above commentor, don't forget about the other uses of Candy Corn. Bags are not the only use. There's also a nice new little CC Gobbler just to mention one. Also, not everyone has a home node. I know a lot of people that didn't bother with it when it was available. Candy Corn will go up in value after some time. It's just going to be awhile.

    This is very dangerous speculation. Prices of trick or treat bags go down in silver every week. People opening these bags continue to flood the market with more and more candy corn. I don't see the price in piece of candy corn going up in 3-5 months. There is likely more trick or treat bags still hidden away by players. (I'm one of them)

    You also can get 20 slot bags for fractal relics. No so sure about your candy corn speculation :)

    I secured a fortune in candy corn after the 1st Halloween event and absolutely lost a fortune. I'm just saying.
