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.

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.

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/

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.

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.

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.

This is simply not true, because I saw how abyss went from 5g - 15g in too fast period. Drop rates had nothing to do with it.

Your memory is clearly mistaken then.

Then you don't understand who is monopolist. Those who bought all dyes at 5g are monopolists.

why do you think there is an abyss dye monopoly?

Notice how they've ALL followed pretty much the same pricing chart. Adobe and Gold have had a little erraticness because they can easily be messed with, but they've quickly returned to the same pattern. Its all because they reduced the dye drop rate to lower than what it was before the accidental buff nov1-5.
