I've been playing since July, and I think I'm beginning to understand big parts of the game mechanics, but there are two things I can't understand.
1 : Why there are so many zero or 1 star items in the AH ? Is there a market for those items ? Who buy beast bashers or firecrackers ? I can't figure out this thing. What's the point of buying items with no alchemy path ?
2 : The best way to get good Uv's.
When I look in the bazaar section of the forum (or in the trade channel) and I see people selling 5, 10 or more items with really good UV's, I really wonder : how the hell did they get all that stuff ?
The only way I know to get good UV's is to mass craft 2* items and sell them for a small loss, or to craft 3* items for a very small profit (or at least no loss), but you can't flood the AH with 3* items without loosing money.
For example I'm looking for CTRmed bombs actually, so it means if I don't want to loose money, I can craft two 3* bombs of each kind of bomb per day. That way I'm quite sure I'm not flooding the AH, and everything I craft is sold for a small profit (or only a very small loss). As Im' looking for CTRmed Fiery, toxic, blast and crystal, I do around 8 to 16 crafts per day depending of the market.
That way it can take years to get the UV's you want.
I can buy premade UV's, but try to find a CTRmed toxic vap in the AH, it has been one complete week and I haven't seen one.
In the long run, isn't mass crafting 2* items for Uv's, costs a lot more than simply buy premades Uv's ?
I didn't like Punch when he was 15k, so now he's 20...
If I had answers to theses questions, I would not play better, but my SK life would make more sense.
