Got a hell of a lot to sell too (can't even know how much i got), for now there is nothing to do but wait until prices go back up, given the supply it might take a lot of time before they go over 5 copper, if it takes too much time i'll just sell at 4pc and lose 20g. It's only been 3 days since Halloween so I'm not gonna worry too much just yet, but still this is not looking good.
My real problem is that my TP is full, i don't have enough space to pick them up, so i'm pretty much screwed until i can start selling.

It costs roughly 9 gold to purchase an additional character slot and equip the character with all 15 slot bags for storage. You might want to look into doing that.

EDIT: You can also create a guild, purchase influence, and make a guild bank. I don't remember the cost per item slot but I think it's worse than purchasing character slots unless you have some of those influence thingies from personal story.

Just checked it's 5g and 4 days building to make your own guild bank, 50 storage slots.

I have to admit I didn't think of creating a guild just for storage, but even with an entire guild bank I won't have enough slots, 200 free slots let me store 50k items and I got much more than that just in candys :eek:

You're using mules to store corn? ;)  Hint:  You can store infinite corn.  You just give up your ability to take profits from sales off the tp.  So I've just been seling ori via mail trades.

Edit: On a side note, I've been making more money with the mail trades anyways :3  Really, screw the tp lol.

I know you technically could leave it in the purchased tab of the TP, but I use it way too much for that. I'm still throwing shortbows into the forge praying for The Lover. And I really don't plan on selling this stuff till Feb. or so.

Quick friendly reminder, dump all your candy corn / ToT bags now, before you're screwed.

  • Power Trader (Booster): Activating power trader allows you to have up to 4 trading post listings per item and stack up to 1000 items in each listing

For those with many stacks of candy corn, you're going to be limited to how many you can put up at once.
Which means bye bye storage space.

That is all based on assumptions and seeing as most of those items are actually old items used in alpha/beta I would not assume they will actually be put in game.

It's there, but the name is gone for some reason.
If you browse weapons in the TP you will find it.

Only if you don't mind a really long wait.  It's doubtful Anet wants millions of candy corn sitting on the market at a worthless price for next halloween, so there will be some intervention almost certainly.  But they can take their time doing it.
Fun while it lasted.  I guess.

Yeah the corn was a bust. Luckily I got around to buying a greatsaw for 23g, and now it's selling for 46g. So at least I didn't get totally burned this holiday, lol.
