The spectral looks to be falling already. And Partyhats are raising due to more people wanting them now that they are "affordable" and merchent clans. But the otehr 3 spirit shields will continue rising. For a while atleast, I don't know about you but 1/2 the Pictures of G.E. has a elysian spirit shield buying in one of the boxes so demand, for atleast one spirit shield, is high. Very high.



3rd age is just like animal hats were, only muuch longer term. They aren't that good but when you see it you hear, or atleast read, yourself or someone say "nice armour". But one day, it'll all crash and it will takes months till it hit's its "proper" price.

i could careless about paper hats, 3rd age doesn't have any significant cause for me to buy one, and spirit shields are just too expensive. :D but every items in runescape will drop eventually.

Price of sigil is tied to the price of spirit sheild.

I was honestly prepared to buy myself a phat and go into real semi-retirement and now...




This is what I did :thumbsup:



A red and a yellow have been sitting in my bank for about a month and I haven't really played WOW at all. I've been keeping up with the community still and watching for some great updates...and it is an absolute thrill to see my two little "long term" investments start to show some promise already. Every day when I wake up and see that they have risen AGAIN....the feeling is indescribable. I am an old old school WOW player...and I am absolutely delighted that I managed to nab two pieces of WOW history while the prices were so low. I am aware that there is the possibility that they will start to fall again, or that this is all part of a manipulation scheme, but either way it is worth knowing that I was able to attain these two hats before the inevitable rise in price would make them unattainable to me. I only wish I could have afforded more of them :(



Whatever happens, I am in it for the long haul, and will never be parting with my beloved antiques of WOW history. I am sure nobody is going to read my post and think much of it...but it truly does make me feel warm and fuzzy inside to know that I secured ownership of TWO hats that will someday be the most elusive item in the game. <3:




I read the whole thing and agree with you completely. I have nothing else to add; you described it perfectly.




Thanks, its good to know I'm not the only one out there.



PS...my original post contained the acronym with an R and an S, not a W, O, W....Seems to be a crafty little word substitution prank on behalf on the administration. :D

Spirit shields are released at a faster rate than third age. so at this rate spirit shields like elysian and Divine will crash as soon as 3a crash. this will probbaly be when divine and elysian each go 500 mil + respectively. Third age will crash after each of of them double's its ge price.



personally i believe phats wont even raise another 10 mil before they crash again, they have no use, cept to show off your wealth, while third age has a use and looks kind of neat( if you know how to wear them correctly).

I remember reading a topic like this probably five months ago about party hats going up and third age items being dumped. I seriously considered selling my 3a item but decided not to. The following days, I monitored the GE and most of the 3a items went up 1m+ and continue to go up to this day. Phats never went up as high as other people predicted it to be (at least in the GE, not sure about street prices). Purple back then was around 86m.

I doubt even one elysian has been sold on the GE since they were released. The rises in price are manipulation by Jagex.



Prices cannot change automatically unless offers are completed. Eventually the price will become high enough that divines and elysians will start buying. And based on what happened to d claws, they'll probably skyrocket and then crash.

Ah, this reminds me about the noob on the Runescape forums who was upset with the quest "Cold War" because apparently his grandparents died in the war. :wall:

Actually, many have... I don't know why they recently havn't shown up on the top valued traded on the GE database, but if you look about a few days ago on the general screenies sticky, someone bought a sigil. Also there have been coinshared sigils as well (some TIFers got an ely a few months ago), so yes they have been sold.







Other than that, Specs crashed yesterday night/this morning ish, arcanes crashed a few hours ago as far as I've seen, and I've talked to a few 3a/shield merchants saying they don't see Ely/Divine staying insane too much longer (Although I give those 2 a few more months I'd think).



Partyhats are probably going to either go back down/or at least stay stable soon as far as I can see.. theres no way they're going to rocket to some insane price all of a sudden.

the trick is to balance all of these methods to get 99 and either play real life or train another skill while farming.

Ely/div will hit 400-500m. It's rare; on average 1 ely/div comes into the game every day. You may not think this is accurate, but for the time being it is. Keep in mind that maybe 30-40% of the time these ely/div are kept by the person that got them. Not because they know they will rise but because thats why they corp anyway, because they want these shields, cant buy them, so get them themselvs.



Spectral is crap. It blows at arma, and has worse melee/range protection then dfs. It's only 150m ge because no one would sell, no one really knew how good/bad it was, and it was rare.



Arcane is actually very usefull. +20 mage attack plus def stats slghtly worse then dfs. Awesome for pking, will be great for dueling when duel tourneys is fixed. No its not worth 165m but it is worth about 50m or whatever it will level at. Like spectral, it's only 165m because it was very rare and none were in the ge plus so few come into the game.



I see 3a "crashing" in a month.



As for phats, who knows. lol.

I am not a skiller, but i do some skills.

'Spectral is crap. It blows at arma, and has worse melee/range protection then dfs. It's only 150m ge because no one would sell, no one really knew how good/bad it was, and it was rare.'





1. You hardly ever get hit by the melee minion as if your team is properly spaced out it gets confused and goes around turning like the kbd does therefore not attacking.

2. YOU PRAY RANGE!

3. Every other attack by Kree is a MAGE attack , spectral offers + 30 mage , that makes a lot of difference.



O yeh and dfs gives - 5 range , while spectral is neutral with an added +3 prayer.



Granted it does not warrant 150 m , but to say that it blows at armadyl is ridiculous.
