So if we missed the Master Ball being in the itembuildr shop, we’re basically ****ed? It’s sold for ten times the original cost on Kyoubai. So, if we missed out, everyone that didn’t gets to overprice the most beneficial object in the game?

I wasn’t aware I was playing Runescape.

Your best bet is waiting until it appears in the Ppwn Shoppe.

Many of the Master Ball Sellers have either set very low or no reserves on the Auctions. Therefore, it is not the Sellers that are ‘overpricing’ the items, it is the Buyers.

If you want to save your Flezz, wait for it to appear randomly in the Ppwn Shoppe.

If you would rather acquire the item now, then spend your Flezz now.

There are plenty of options for everyone.

That’s a very simplified and inaccurate view of economics. If the OPEC nations decided to limit oil production to 25% of current outputs, but allowed foreign nations to bid on oil lots starting at $30 a barrel, prices would be tremendously higher than they currently are. It’s the low supply that’s driving prices high.

Why are the Buyers bidding so high on these items? Because the supply is currently very scarce.

That was the basic premise of the OP. Low Supply + High Demand + Open ended Bidding System.

Most people don’t know that they will show up in the ppwn shop sooner or later and are wasting their cash or just can’t wait for it to show up.

When you’ve got nothing else to spend the Flezz on, then why wait?

Does “not having a master ball” really put you at any sort of competitive disadvantage? I don’t think so, but I could be mistaken.

Not really. I’ve found that it does allow you to one shot a few forums’ threads with more regularity. That’s really about it.

Of course, for the mid range player, a Master Ball/Pink Floyd Combo can be a huge boost.

It depends a lot on where you already are in terms of the rest of your equipment. If you’ve already got a bunch of good gear and decent .moars, the MB bonus is just a nice addition. If you’re a new player who happened to have the cash for an MB, and no Pink Floyds, etc, it’s a huge bump.

All that said: Dragonballs have already showed up in the Ppwn Shoppe, with an adjusted price, so the <i>other</i> famous balls will likely show up, albeit perhaps somewhat inflated in price. Look for Frugality gear, get it then. If you absolutely positively can’t wait, well, then you’re stuck with the current Kyoubai structure.

This situation is no different from when players that don’t have Episode 2 want to buy the highest level gear, or for non-CamWhores that want to buy the Versnatches. They’ll eventually show up in the Ppwn Shoppe, or you can buy them virtually at a whim in Kyoubai.

Except for those stuff they will appear at the ppwn shoppe at a higher price while with master ball you’ll find it there at a much lower price. And virtually at a whim is far from reality..

Why are you so uncool man?
