Merchanting weeds?

Recommended Posts

As I went to the Grand Exchange today I saw an odd sight.

A level 135 with a red partyhat and a construction cape was buying weeds of everybody.

He asked me if I could go onto the grand exchange and buy 5k weeds for him, as 5k was the Grand exchanges limit.

Like many other players around me I did and he payed the 100k I had spent on them.

I asked him why and he replied that he was merchanting them.

 

My question is why?

He had at least 20k of them and weeds have barley any use in runescape other than to make compost and they come into the game fairly easily.

A man can never have enough weed. He was probably just a dealer, buying them cheap off the GE and wait till the weed stock runs out on New Years eve, then sell for mega profits.

Isn't dealing weed illegal in most places?

 

Hes most likely having some fun either trying to merchant or get the biggest pile of weed for fun (like the people who collect burn fish).

Perhaps he thinks that there just happen to be bigger fools out there that would buy them for more. Or he's trying to push the price up so they'll go up and he'll have a good amount of junk to use for junk trading.

 

Or I could make the fifth drug joke in the topic.

With so many trees in the city you could see the spring coming each day until a night of warm wind would bring it suddenly in one morning. Sometimes the heavy cold rains would beat it back so that it would seem that it would never come and that you were losing a season out of your life. But you knew that there would always be the spring as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person had died for no reason. In those days though the spring always came finally but it was frightening that it had nearly failed.

whcih makes me wonder why i had to have my old sig removed from tip.it with the statement "all your weed is belong to me" with the reason that your not supposed to advertise illegal substances. perhaps all your weed is NOT belong to me. but that should be the only problem now, since jagex seem to like weed hehe

lemme have my sig back tipit!!1

Either a very prospective price manipulator, or he's going to do something with the weeds to make a profit.

 

Or, as mentioned before, for the lulz.

Sounds pretty good way of creating junk for me :P

 

Just think about it how easy it's to make its price to go even over 10 times bigger than original price (since it's so cheap in the beginning).

Then again, no one really gathers weeds in mass amounts since there is no point doing so because they are so cheap.

 

Everyone dealing with rares knows that junk does have a value.

 

Well, i don't know for sure but that's how it sounds to me :P

 

At least buying out weeds shouldn't affect anyone else's daily scaping ^^

A lot of people who merchant/trade rares use this method. A few extremely wealthy people totally buy out an item to use it as junk for hundreds of millions. My friend told me about this, it happens a lot with seeds and stuff. Generally the items don't affect the average player so it is better than merchanting clans.
