This topic is mainly meant to discuss the evolution of rares, spirit shields, and other bought out items. "Hot" items, or items showing some strange behaviour, can also be discussed. Basically, this is where you can discuss most merchanting related stuff.
This is NOT a topic to discuss "solutions" to rares or other weird suggestions. Face it, they've been here for ages, so let's just try to make the best out of it, and see if we can make some money out of them, or at least get some insight into their price changes.

I might add a list of stable junk items, and if I really can be bothered, a list of street prices of all rares and spirit shields. Help on this is always appreciated.

This had to happen one day, just take advantage while you can and get some money off it.

It'll crash sooner or later.



I personally own third age mage hat. I bought it for 14m. I have NO plans to sell it, EVER. Seeing how it is the BEST magic hat in hat in the game ;)

What news are you watching lol? Dow is crazy right now, don't put too much faith into it, although, this new trend of going up 300-500 points a day and only losing 100-200 the next sounds good. Hopefully we see more of it. if you want to track the dow you simply google it, and during market hours you can see live updates every second. Same goes for all others.

I think party hats are starting to rise because all the cheap noobs can afford them, 60mil ain't all that much these days, phats will steady out soon. I think 3rd age will hit their price soon, I think spirit shields have a long way to go, unlike 3rd age these items are very good. I sure as hell would buy them at their current price (well arcane and Elysian at least) I haven't followed them that closely(I rarely corp), I have no idea about the rarity, so it's hard to say really. Certain corp clans can't have that much, assuming 5k people have 500mil+ actively playing I would assume at least half of them would put some money into the current spirit shield prices.

Absolute [cabbage]. theres ALOT of players like me who have played since 01' and aren't even hitting the 10m mark.



OT: Spirit shields I can belive to rise alot due to the rareness in drop, the monster and the high requirements and extremly usefull abilities they hold. 3A isn't as strong as Torags but is rare ONLY because of Treasure Trails, hell I see 3A more then what I see of Animal Masks. and Party Hats? honestly dont deserve to be their price. Its a holiday item, a festivity, not a damn tool for players to use as barganing chips to increase their wealth.

I think a lot of players will reflux now that the prices are displaying more accurately.



When Jagex was locking prices, the street value price creation allowed for a newly integrated "Free Enterprise" that allows for price manipulation via junk trading.



With a relaxed reduction on price flux, prices of any non-new items will be the same as street price (or at least should get there). That's a huge development, and there's far less speculation involved in pricing.



Given that there is less speculation, there's less money to be had. Clans will stick to new-item hoarding to drive price manipulation.



That, or the opposite; clans could hold up and let prices go completely insanely out of control as they sit on items. It will be interesting to watch the market control/response habits of Jagex and merchants.

Lets just say that the CB was never given the stomp ability. They would of crashed a few weeks after they started going up 10m a day. They aren't THAT useful. Ely and divine are only effective on things where you get hit for alot of damage often. Not that useful to remove 1-2 damage per hit :\

Doesn't have to be alot (in seperate numbers). It would be good at whichever place your normal healing method doesn't keep up, and banking is a nuisance.



I would love to have an elysian for doing armadyl gwd, or tanking bandos.

Meh, 0.3% rise on only purple p-hat, the rest are still dropping. Hardly anything to get excited about, I don't think they'll grow in price much, not when 3a items are much more sought after.

Green and red partyhats are being sold for over medium on the GE, white for medium price, blue didn't sell at all. Don't know about yellow and purple.

They wouldn't crash so soon. Spirit sheilds are the best sheilds in game, and you have to be a decent level or have high lsp just to get one. Spectral is super useful at arma, arcane is usefull at bursting lobs/DK maging. Elysian removes 25% of the damage 70% of the time, and divine removes 30% of the damage all the time. Hard to get really owned with that bonus.
