you snooze you lose

Items and Crafting
I was in the auction house before logging out and found this sword,

And I checked the price and wanted to double-check DPS gain from D3up. It was 14K DPS upgrade so I decided to purchase... and it's gone.

Well, a lesson learned.
How much?

Those swords are dime a dozen now. You'll get your chance again.
Thanks Boozor, It was 1.7B buyout, too expensive?

1.7B buyout


no wonder it was gone that fast.
My lesson learned: you see it, it can't be true and can't believe your eyes that it's even available at that price? don't even hesitate. press the button.
Price is decent relative to comparables.

I would def buy if I was in market + for flipping.

This happened before, when I saw 6/25, 169DEX, 960DPS socket 2.9 LS WKL for 1.8B, I hesitated it and it's gone the next second...

Oh man, I should've just hit the button!!

You're right actually...I felt bad about missing a 1200/63cd/9ias/3ls one for 2b a few days ago, but then I came to realize that these are no longer the rarity they once were on gah...

Too bad you missed it Mnk, but I think Boozor's correct, you'll likely get a shot at something similar down the road.

I did that one time and ended up with a 5 APOC Chant's Force.
These "deals" aren't really deals anymore especially with the swords.

Seems like GAh will contain swords up to 1260 but obviously not good ones.

The one you missed out for I sniped one similar couple weeks ago for 2b and resold it via rmah for 125 bucks. But I think now ... Might be harder.

Also the price of swords on rmah versus GAh have a huge discrepency. Rmah is grossly overprice compared to GAH swords and are marginally better.

It also seems like there are a couple sellers of swords on rmah. They all post around the same time. And there was a shortage over the weekend, like 6 over 1200 then fille up to 2 pages the next day. Coincidence ? Probably not.

Especially these crafted swords since they are exploited most likely like all level 62 crafts over time there will just be more and more of them reducing the prices except for maybe the strongest ones.

I remember couple months ago you'll be hard pressed I find something over 1200 dps on rmah. And I was bidding against zaksa for his LS sword which in glad I didn't win and let him over pay for it (approx 1200usd) today that same sword is close to rmah quality.

So don't worry you'll have your chance again. :)

Definitely noticed this. I figured it was some botter/exploiter cashing out, but maybe they just like dumping their goods in one big shot rather than trickling them in.

Thanks for your consolation, silverfire... 14K DPS! I could have reached 400K unbuffed (with my tal chest).

I can't even begin to imagine that kind of money being spent. It is very interesting to me how this commodity market works.

I'm in the same boat as zaksa with my LS sword. This thing is nowhere near the 60b+ gold I originally paid. I'm just riding it out and getting the most I can out of it. I remember Void showed me a sword for $250 on the RMAH that was a few hundred DPS off of mine.

I just take pride in knowing that all the swords that are close in DPS are IAS based. None have high intelligence, bwahaha.

-.-

A least yours is a rune sword.

That's style points you can't put a price on.

Thank you. I feel much better now.

I hesitate to admit to this, but I actually chose my sword just because it was a rune sword.

It had no crit damage, and it cost more than it should have. I could have taken an axe for the same price that would have been a 10k upgrade. I could have gotten a conquest sword with the same LS, half the INT, and 45% crit damage for about 100 million more than I paid for this sword.

But it was ugly...

I am incredibly superficial...

I refuse to wear a Tal chest and Zuni Trail together because they don't visually match.
