Ok guys, i tried to solo merchant cuted dragonstones.

I tought since merchant clans are merching uncuted ones, people who needed dragonstones, would buy the cuted ones.



Well, my guess was wrong.



Today is the second day I'm have them.



The 1st day went down: 220gp.

The 2nd day went down: 2.200gp.



Should i wait until it goes back or sell them right away? I already lost around 2M with that game :(

Looks like they're about to drop a fair amount. Get more opinions before you actually decide but I'd say if you don't sell now you'll lose a lot more.

I've just started solo merching myself and the first lesson I learned is to not try to ride with the manipulation clans. They're very unpredictable. Try to use more stable items next time. And I'd suggest selling them as soon as possible to prevent as much damage as possible.

When everything's been said and done, more has been said than done.

The problem is, people generally buy uncut stones, which is why they are usually more expensive. which is why the clan was probably merching the uncut ones in the first place.

It was a foolish move to be honest.

Sorry about your loss though :(

I don't believe glories will rise 10k higher than their current price so I suggest selling.

You really should sell now the dragons stones wont go up past ~45k when they stabilize after the crash. Even selling minimum now would be a smart choice, because looking at the crash it will crash, a lot more.



Also as said above never follow an item that is being merchanted by a clan unless you keep it for 2 ge updates for a quick buck, if you try to "maximize" your profits you'll likely end up rushing to dump with the other people.
