    i have 2 komog mounts myself and sold a 3rd scale that i found on AH to a friend and have seen 2 others drop just from my guild, with the number of easy dragon 1 runs per week its not hard to wait for a scale, certainly better than paying 70d for it lol. even other players who bought the mount from npc only to sell in wc for higher got to 30-40d tops...

    Seriously!!! You expect the regular playerbase to have 70 Diamonds to start a bid on a mount!!!! You people are more screwed up than most of us think!!! You need to go back to drawing board, this is a huge kick in our arses!!

    Ok, now we know the problem is "70D", good mount-good event-good thing is in 24 hours, after PW_Auction can either re-auction or keep it for yourself, and hopefully they will reduce the bid since no one bid it, "if" they really want to have someone buy it xD

    p/s: I don't do komog raid for free mount, no time/lazy*, so I rather pay for it ;p

    you go right on ahead and pay 70d for that wayyyy overpriced mount, instead of investing that into something more important.

    Dear lord, although I've seen Komog go for maybe 40D when he first came out, that's a fair bit lower then 70D.
    If you really want it to be an Auction that's at all fun for the player-base then start the bids at one copper and let the server decide for themselves what it's worth.
    I'm guessing this is just a desperate attempt to deflate the economy as it seems PWE has decided to worth-while log-in events, if you have brains, keep your money people.
    I sincerely most if not all servers let it time-out XD

    OH also, inb4 Elemental Gear Pack, 40D starting bid!

    does domino know you can just buy a komog in game for 13d....

    and do amarantos know that you should loot the scale item in the dragon 1 first and that's quite rare

    well the maximum price on any auction item is 99.99.99d, so if the item is valuable enough (or someone with alot of gold is a big enough jerk) all it will take is one person placing maximum bid, e.g goes to the quickest rich person.



    some food for thought tho, if domino is going to be the one in charge of this: it was mentioned on the podcast domino was part of an "1800 club" in a previous job where he devoted 20 hours a day to the job. now, i know several players on this game have put alot of time towards certain things or have gone against their time zones to be present for events. some have even spent an entire 24 hours setting an alarm every hour on the hour in order to participate in an in-game event. i know domino works hard for us, but if he once worked as hard as 20 hour days for a job, is it really so terrible to set the auction to convenient server times and not pwe time, to set up the accounts ahead of time and just set an alarm to log in and put the item up for bid...like so many players have also done for the game.



    /rant, inb4 aint nobody got the time or cares fo dat

    It sounds like sheepclouds idea

    Its not THAT rare xD We got like 4 mounts just in our Guild. Probably around 20+ on whole server. Event then, no one paid more than 20D for it, except maybe when expansion first came.

    Seems like as usual GM missed the ball on knowing whats priced on which servers for how much. If only they put time in playing on the various servers, or even just watching the World Chat every few hours per day.
    Komog Order! Lets buy a Balerion to gini!!! ;)

    Not as rare as having 70D in your bank account.... Some ppl just dont have that much gold in the game.

    70d is just way too much for a komog mount

    100% sure that the reason for this event and its prices, is to remove some gold out of play in the servers. Makes me think they regretted the login event rewards lol.

    Only one winner per day (if someone bid), so either 5 ppl or less will spend 100D more or less for the items, this event does not "remove some gold out of players", rather give the rich a chance to buy what they missed xD Market is like 1leaf:1g ratio, most items according the ratio to list the price as well, so we gonna spend more to get the stuff which already "remove some gold out" unless there will be the day when 1leaf:40s 3yrs ago, spent less and got more.

    Yea but rather than have the gold circle back into the system.. it gets removed. unless the GM pretends to use this gold to buy stuff from players.. if he doesnt.. then the gold gets removed from circulation

    First off, the max is 999.99.99 not 99.99.99

    Secondly, due to p-servers majority of people already knows how to glitch-bid even 4 digit amounts of diamonds up to the bag limit of gold.​

    the game literally will not let you (legally) bid past 99.99.99.99D. feel free to test it yourself. when putting an item up for auction sure you can manage to enter in a bid price over 99D, like 599D, but once you actually list the item it caps at 99D. and if you have more than say 110D in your bag and try to bid on the item, where it says next highest bid needs to be 101D+, it will not let you. because thats the cap.

    but, thanks for bringing possible glitching to dominos attention (assuming he even reads this thread), so he can know that if any bids go for more than 99D99g99s99c a ban is in order ;)

    just saying. unless i've missed something.

    The 99 Max bid is still there but you can bid higher than that. Bug Fixed.
