Thread: NA Legacy Server Apex Prices are being inflated virtually

  1. #1

    Question Virtual Inflation for Apex Prices on NA Legacy Servers

    Hello,
    As you can see in screenshots, people are transferring gold via apexes and this is a big issue for the apex market. The average price on the graph goes constantly up and up because of those registered 15-123k gold sales. Are you planning to do something about this issue? Why do you let them mess with prices? Is abusing the average price graph system legal? When they reach 2k per apex, it'll make more players quit, please do something before that happens.

    Why would they need to do something about people moving gold around?
    Epic Erenor Scepter - 856 Magic Att, 733 gimped DPS.
    Epic Erenor Katana - 815.3 DPS.
    Epic Erenor Bow - 693 DPS... worse than the gimped weapon even though it's a primary weapon.
    "Balance" . . . This doesn't even take in to account the 978.4 epic erenor nodachi, or 978 mAtt staff.

    But no complaint about apex being sold for 11 silver?

    Seems OP is okay with transferring apex across servers and skewing the average price graph downward, but not okay with gold being transferred across servers because it skews the average price graph system upwards.

    In reality, there is no issue to be dealt with. The average price graph shows the data history, it is up to people to interpret it.

    It is still causing an inflation a bit at a time. There is no cause for the inflation because before there used to be almost 1500 apex's sold and the regular was around 800 now the highest in the past 2 weeks was 800 and the regular is around 400, and the more that it increases the less are sold.

    It has nothing to do with them to govern that price. We set the price and you will always buy it regardless

    Apex prices are usually not a problem since they are tied to hard cash money, unless there is an exploit involved.. People rarely use them to move gold around with the exception of this time.. Usually it's some other item.. With the current status of the game, FS being more populous, Apex is getting more attention there.. With that there will be fewer Apex sold in Legacy hence prices can inflate from time to time... As FS is merged to Legacy you will notice it will level off once more..

    Wrong. APEX are almost always used to transfer large sums of money between servers. The reason for this is that APEX are one of a very small number of items that have a 1% AH fee instead of the normal 5% fee.

    If, for example, you need to transfer 10k gold from one server to another, you list the APEX on the server you want the gold to go to and buy the APEX on the server you are transferring from. Instead of losing 500g (5%), you lose 100g (1%), saving yourself 400g. You then sell the APEX and buy a normal item from yourself with whatever is left from selling the APEX to transfer the rest to your destination server.

    With server transfers and name changes reactivated recently apex was bound to go up in price for a while. It'll come down in a few more weeks and stabilize until merges or FS joins the AH cluster.
