PC Baro Intel: Ducat Pricing Trends.

Recommended Posts

Not sure if glitch or not but the stock randomly changed. Sadly just before I was able to buy the Machete Wraith. :( Still happy I got P Flow though.

A bit more clarification as to what happened:

The noon Sortie rollover overwrote our Baro price changes, which the Hotfix then compounded the issue.

We've restored the intended values and switched the items offered to reflect our proposed Ducat price adjustments.

So the current items with P Flow and Kiteer Noggle are the correct items?

Will the items we bought from the first set of stock be refunded or are we able to keep what we had bought?

No need to be nasty, but I would like the 12 plat I wasted trying to by the Detron. It completed the plat transaction but could not complete the weapon >.>

so in other words, you screwed over everyone who happened to purchase 2 more wep slots to get the 2 weapons there, and then removed the weapons we were trying to get from him mid transaction and left us with crap we have already? GG DE. #obviouslynotthieves

I also wonder if we will get a ducat refund for what the difference between new and old prices would be considering the prices originally did not reflect the new changes.

The current items are the correct items. You can keep what you bought from Baro before we switched them live!

true, Primed Heated Charge was 350 ducats before reroll, same as PHT, after reroll PHC went to 310 ducats...

40 ducats differencies but it still means a lot for ppl who rarely do relic opening / fissure closing like me...

Tenno, it seems that our Ducat price changes didn't take for Baro's visit today. We're looking into it!

Our apologies for the confusion. 

 

 

so are those of us who bought something in the first lot gonna get our ducats and credits back?

Are we not refunded the Ducat amount from purchases before the re-adjusted values?

Good to know! Thanks for the quick response. Still sad I missed that Machete Wraith, but happy regardless since i finally got a P Flow. I asked this earlier but just in case it's not seen, is there going to be any refunds for the 'would be' price differences for the first set of stock listed considering those prices were not affected by the new ducat price changes?

Am I reading that right, 400 ducats for a small animated shoulder badge? Absolutely ludicrous.

Yes. 400 ducats. To someone who has mastered every prime weapon and, therefore, has no reason to hold onto any parts except to trade to other players, that's a pittance. Baro is not a requirement. Baro is a luxury.

I agree that the only good thing was Baro's badge.

However, Baro's "fix" still offers insanely high prices. This downward adjustment that you speak of is unnoticeable. And when compared to prices from last year, these prices are actually higher.

I expected prices to be 100-200 across the board, maybe even 50-100.

You claim that you look at data and ducat fluctuations. but you seem to fail to realize the reasons behind what you see in the data:

  1. More grind & repetition = less ducat income
  2. Less ducat income = less ducat spending and more plat spending to trade
  3. Less ducat spending = less ducat fluctuation
  4. Less ducat fluctuation = same old prices
  5. Same old prices = more salt and play unhappiness

It seems as if after the hugely successful "The Second Dream" update, DE has been on a death spiral down to Hell. Salt has been increasing the last 6 months.
