Those are just orders from very rich people, since you have to put the money in TP to place an order.
But it will never happen because it is an account bound item and the buy order will never take place.

You can seach for pears as well, saw one buy order for 600g to.

Or it may be just  a bug.

Just people showing of howmuch money they got.
I find it kinda funny that a pear and now a mining pick are more expensive than legendary precursors.. :P

I know what it is:P just find it funny seeing it over and over like the lemon celery stalk and pear. people doing this never dare to put it on a actually buyable item would be funny if anet makes all these items sellable for just 1 day:P bye bye money for these guys then haha

anet is supposedly still working on making account bount and soulbound items not orderable on tp

I don't think it's people showing off rather people "hiding their stash" for if they get hacked in the hope that the hacker wont look in the TP to withdraw that pot of gold sitting there.

If it were for an actual item you could sell I would be inclined to say it was gold sellers transferring money.

putting it on the tp like that just draws attention instead of hidding their stash. so i highly doubt its to hide it from hackers.

Right, because people just hate to show off.

Considering you're not able to see who has the buy order..

You cant track who placed the buy order. And I am thinking in terms of someone already hacking into te account the and looking at the liquid assets the person has. By placing the buy order it is a fail safe (not a great one) that hopes that the hacker will not look to see any money tied up in the TP.

It's not really necessary to have a new thread every time someone puts up an epeen bid for an untradable item.
Do you need help or just want to chat about moderation?  Drop me a PM.
