In Topic: Lore behind legendary weapons?

26 February 2013 - 12:07 PM

When you trying to figure out legendary, you should consider every aspect of it. Not only name, but looks as well what items are used to create it. It's all probably connected somehow. Also detail especially in looks could be important.

After I saw each and every weapon, I only got interested in 2 legendaries: Shield and Scepter. Since I main warrior I made shield, and at first I didn't have idea whats it about. But later I found out its connected with Glint from gw1 and is part of the lore.

Reason why I find scepter maybe even more interesting is that is looks like some sort of planet system. Could it be that one of those planets is Tyria and that whole thing is actually solar system of Tyria, I guess we might find or not in future.

It raised to the price it was before the initial buff immediately after the drop rate was patched. The long term raise was because the drop rates were lower than they were to start with. Its shown in all the dyes.
What long term raise? It doubled its usual price in like 5 days. Those people knew price was right, invested in right time bought them all off and set their own price.

@Gilles about term monopolizing: Yea you can get abyss from other sources, but it doesn't change fact that they changed price and are dictating market. Having ability to get something is not same as monopolizing. Because majority of people are actually getting abyss dye from tp. And that's where they operate. You can nit pick all you want in dictionary reality is, if you want abyss dye now, you gonna pay 15g to the guy that made it 15g. And this applies to 99% of people that play. Other 1% get lucky drop.

Considering all dyes showed the same level of price increase (3-4x) over the same time period, I think its clear the drop rate wasn't restored to what it was previously. Bot bans may also have had an effect, but they didnt occur until around a week after the patch was put in, by which point prices were already on their way up above what they were before. And yes, after people read the patch notes they will have bought the cheaper dyes that were a result of the buff, but there was no sudden price jump to 15g or anything. Just an increase to the price they were before, which shows people just bought out the cheaper stock to use or relist at the old price. The "almost none" was actually just the stock that was there beforehand.

Its relative term sudden. 2 months abyss was 5g and in matter of several days it vent to 10 and kept raising. U say just increase to the price they were before, your chart actually say It raised by double and now more then triple. Abyss was never 15g+. Believe what u wanna believe, in drop rates or other people working on monopolizing.

Nov 5th "Corrected drop rate for Unidentified Dye." http://wiki.guildwar...ates/2012-11-05

Threads on dye drop being much lower than before a few weeks after the "fix".
http://www.guildwars...ow-way-too-low/
https://forum-en.gui...Dye-drop-rate-1

The charts for all the dyes echo this gradual increase over the course of 3 weeks to their current price. It wasn't person(s) buying out all the abyss, its the result of the update. Unless you think they have done this to every single dye over the course of 3 weeks, because its the same chart for all of them.
Ok your first link show drop was corrected which would imply back to how it was before. Other 2 links are speculations of few people. You prove nothing same like I don't prove. I wish I can show how in one moment there were many abyss dyes and then in next moment there were almost none. Also there were people on this forum trying to create monopolizing group. They are even open in what they do. I'm too lazy to search for that. You can believe in whatever you want.


Here is link of people openly discussing it:  http://www.guildwars...6013-buy-group/

Your memory is clearly mistaken then.
Well if you don't believe in my memory believe in your chart. From early september until early november price was stale at around 5g. Something happened that day and suddenly price started to raise.
In 5 days price would go up to 10g which is double the price of what it was for full 2 months. There were many abyss dyes for 5g and price in that range. But then they were all gone. Group of people bought them all. And started raising price. This chart is just showing actually what happened.
