I wonder if anyone else gets a little put off attending sales knowing full well they will be stocked up with furniture from the store from gem events :nerd: I have noticed since gem events were introduced sales that sell discontinued items are become less frequent, which is making it a lot harder to find items :sad:

I haven’t even had the urge to go to a furniture sale event in a year. Between the price jacking and the over-saturation of worthless items that everyone owns, I cannot find a single reason to attend a furniture sale event.

Talking about sales, I have noticed. In-game most sales are selling gem event items and on the forums, there are mostly want-to-buys. I am stuck stalking the Auction House. A decent sale is too rare. My horse hunting is not as easy as it was 2 years ago. :shocked: :sad:

Yes the sales (not only in the events, but also in auction house and especially in Trading sub-forum) seem to be stagnating.

But I keep on visiting them anyway. Because every once in a while I will stumble upon item that I wanted for a while for a price I am ready to pay, and sometimes even deals where I can't believe it is actually happening and that the seller is indeed going to sell me the item for the price they advertised.

There is not many of them but they are still out there.

It is logical that players are trying to sell the items they care about the least (which are often indeed the items they got for free from events), but if it were not for those, they might have been selling things we would consider even worse.

If they had items of more value that they would not have hard time getting rid of (emotionaly) do you think they would bother reposting the events, sitting glued to the screen in hopes of making a few coins selling items most players already have plenty of?

I know I would not.

BVG did this. They made items harder to come by for some categories, which means players are keeping what they get instead of reselling them. And IF they choose to resell they will do so only at premium prices - and often get what they ask for. This makes a good sale with lots of items under 100k very tough to find and big sales with many items over 1M very common. All of this means fewer event sales and customers. People spend the majority of their selling/shopping time in the AH now - and I don't blame them at all. If I started playing this week, I probably wouldn't waste a minute generating coins outside the AH. It is too much of a headache, there's too many morons, and too few good players even trying any more. Sad but true......

Truth. I stopped bothering going to sales for about a year as well. It is such a pain now to try and find anything in this game that has been discontinued. Unless you're a really dedicated item-hunter and want it really bad, & have all the time in the world to sit and wait, it is an utmost challenge. I have tried to make my own WTB events and usually give up after about 6 tries, where not a single person will ever come. It sucks because when the inspiration hits it is very discouraging to learn that all the items you want are lost to the obscurity of player's accounts who may or may not even play anymore. So many old items are just almost impossible to come by. Unless I sit on trading pages all day making charts & graphs of what I'm looking for etc then I feel there is just not much of a chance. I have had times where I wanted to shop or find items, but couldn't, far too many times to count. It is the nature of this game though I guess.

I just visited a few sales the other day and they are not what they use to be. You can find some good ones sometimes but they are rare.I did buy a few things from one girl though she had like 10 rooms of things had them all labeled and priced pretty fairly I can imagine the time it took but think I only seen 2 other people the entire time I was there. Mainly all you see is the items that have been flooded into the game. I think that part of the game has died and honestly do not see anyway it can make a come back not with how the game is now. Yea auction house is still good but even it is not what it use to be. I always loved sales for the interactions I have meet many old friends just by sale events and its sad to see it gone. :sad:
