Recommended Posts

I heard mint cakes have a high street price and i was wondering wether it still has a high street price and how i should go about selling them.

 

thanks

They crashed a long time ago and are now considered junk by most people.

I got one from a a quest about a month ago and it was still worth 10k or so. I think I sold it off as junk in amongst other things.

I chuckled heartily when that update came out.

 

I don't know what everyone else was thinking, but a highly illiquid item that was completely fiat just didn't seem like a good investment to me. And junk trades? You're still losing millions worth of junk.

It was a good idea at the time, considering mint cakes were fairly rare to get and had a very low GE price. Similar items of rarity from the gnome mini game were priced at 1M/per, and they didn't have nearly as much demand as mint cakes (albeit, mint cakes had "fake" demand). The only issue was that mint cakes had use other than just being used as junk, so Jagex thought it necessary to make them common (much more common), so, obviously, the mint bubble burst (lol :D), and I lol'd along with everyone else.

Eat them or let them collect dust in your bank, they aren't worth anything on the street market anymore due to a change to the gnome delivery mini-game.

So they hidden-update made them more common?

Yes, although I'm not sure if it was hidden or not.

No, it wasn't hidden, it was in the patch notes. Although, a hidden update like that would be pretty evil on Jagex's part.


If you have ever attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an array, copy and paste this into your signature.

Tbh that update was my favorite non main update they've made in a long time. It was almost at the point that you couldn't buy an expensive item without adding a mint cake or two into the trade.

Instead of getting one mintcake for having a minute left on a hard delivery as the basic reward, you now get one per minute left.
