So I’m at this state of mind I just can’t figure out how exactly the value of crystals work. Now recently the price has increased by a lot and it keeps growing, and what causes this? What makes it cost more gold to buy the same amount of blue crystals than other time, at the moment its around 870+ gold per 90 blue crystal, but 1-2 weeks ago it was 500-600 gold per 90 blue crystal.
Can anyone explain me how exactly how it works? I’m not familiar with currency
Remember that, you can set the gold at where you want to buy. Don’t just follow the market price if you really want to buy or sell at the price you want.
The offer goes through or not is different story.
Yeah, the more the gold on the server, the more expensive blue crystals will be. KR server have a lot of content to farm gold, that’s why their blue crystals is 2k gold iirc. For us, this amount of gold comes from the RMT since we don’t have that much content to farm gold like Koreans do.
Both sides are placed by real players. It’s simply supply and demand. More RMT = less legit whales = less crystals for sale. Gold inflation = more demand for crystals. Other factors in play are if there is any good uses for the crystal like Mari shop, skins, and other features like that skin lootbox jar and pheons. People definitely need more crystals now that Vykas/Yoz’s jar is close and it’s compounded by the rampant RMT/bot problem.
As I understand it, if you buy gold via the the royal crystals the price of blue crystals go down. If more people buy the blue crystals, then that price goes up (if only because there are not enough supply of the opposing listing).
So as people gain gold sources outside if the permitted exchange of royal crystals, then there’s no balance and the blue crystal exchange just goes up.
You can’t buy RC by being a RMT. With RMT you only get gold. So then you want BC, right? Since you have a lot of gold, you don’t care about low price, so you bid as you fit (increasing the price per 95 BC to get them asap).
So the real chads who spend real $$ to buy RC see this (somehow) and accomodate to the demant, thus increasing the price of gold for RC.
IMHO, the amount of BC should not be static and should change depending on market.
i think one big change atm is that you cant sell honing mats from chaos dungeons anymore. That increased the price at the market by 100% for mostly all honing mats. now Maris shop prices for most honing mats are way cheaper then on the market.
A lot of people realized that in the last days , which increased the demand of crystals to buy things from Mari´s shop by alot. and with that the crystals go up.
Also alot of people reached their goal like itemlvl (1445,1460) or engravings like (3x4/3x5)
so for conclusion , they spend the Gold for other things like cosmetics or things they get from the shop for crystals
