Progs seem a bit scarce this event.

Post by silentsong on Thu Dec 20, 2012 1:53 am

Has anyone else notice there are not nearly as many progs being auctioned as other events past? I currently only see one sin prog+ in the AH and got rejected for my 55 EP offer, which I felt was generous. Normally I see at LEAST half a dozen prog+ up for auction?

I have thought of two possibilities:

Could this be a sign that people are not willing to spend as much money as before?

or

Perhaps people have been spending their monies on christmas gifts and don't have enough left over for their usual DS purhcases?

Just thought I would point this out.

well tops they cut out is -2bp cost
when ur hitting 10 bp cost, ur getting a 20% reduction
spending 50ep on that at a 20% reduction rate...... depends on how much ur total bp is, but ideally 50ep for 20%, so if ur gonna use 250bp+ then maybe it's useful for u, if not, u accomplish the same without the progs.

For a lot of people, the 25 ep they'd spend on a prog would be better spent buying bp. Compared to the usually prog effect, this one is barely useful.

Also I think this event tanked the prog market with the sin rewards lol.

Since sin is the majority of players, and usually their progs are the most expensive, having SERIOUSLY crappy rewards (pumpkin head? lol ok, 17bp no-skill demon, laaaame, AA crawler? please); while tyranny and covert can get nice 40bp winged brute or winged dragon respectively.


That 40bp imp down wyrm probably just made covert winged wyrms AA team much much much more powerful since people were mixing species and there's still no wyrm down, someone running Vanity/DoD/Wingarm/Terra/(Lind on offense, some other AA wyrm on defense) is going to be pretty damn tough to beat


ya lol I'm pretty sure the progs are out there, but since most sin players who usually do progs aren't paying as much, or even altogether abstaining from the event, It drove the overall prices down. So nobody's all that excited to try sell or buy and resell

that bit about the progs not being too useful certainly doesnt help either lol

I originally told him he might be able to sell them at around 18 each. i thought with all the free dark summons they gave out there would be an abundance of progs flooding the market with everyone trying to make a quick profit, because we all know how they weight the progs in DS during events.
