if BL keys, fine trans stones, and mystic stones are on sale I'll probably grab a few to get rid of some of my chests I have saved, have some more fine stones for when I redo my ranger's build with different stats, and make a few more mystic kits.

Outside of that there's nothing the gem store worthwhile.

Awesome idea to have these sales.
While I do wish the discounts on the minis were a bit higher I'm glad to see this. If Arenanet made these sales on certain months per year, lots of people would be spending their gems on these items on those particular months.

Right now I'm hoping to see a discount on the additional character slots similar to how they had the discounts for the bank tabs. If the discounts on the black lion keys are around 40% i'm planning on purchasing those too.

Keep up the great work!!

I wonder if this will permanently push the gem prices up?

This is a good idea really. If they are going to have sales at all, they should be with some consistency/regularity.

They are: any time the gem price threatens to drop below 2g/100.

Ah yes of course. Because people that don't play the game will log in just to buy stuff to use in a game they don't play.

I've done that a few times actually, especially with sales like this... Log in for a minute, get stuff cheap, leave again. Play the game a few months later and you still have your cheap stuff.

Probably, and if it happens it shows people have alot of gold lying around, which is contrary to popular believe that Anet is starving all of us of gold. :)

I bet it will. The difference between black market gold and gems -> gold right now is very close too. Gonna make it tough for the gold sellers to stay competitive if that happens.

Does anyone know if there is a list of what the store has had on sale already and what is to come. Or even if Anet is keeping that a secret is there a day by day list thus far?

Thanks

Not that I know of, but I can dig around Twitter and find out what's been on sale the first nine days. I'll also be keeping track of the remaining sales somewhere (most likely in this thread).

You know, it wasn't until these sales that I started to realize just how much absolute crap there is that exists on the gem store.
