Ever tried to buy something, but been unsure of how much you ought to be paying? Some people get around this problem by simply asking for a price check over All Chat. While there’s nothing wrong with this method, normally you’ll only get one response that can range from outdated to wildly inaccurate. Trying to sell something is even more challenging, since not knowing the current market value of an item puts you at risk for severely undercharging/overcharging. What a mess… It’s enough to make you want to vacation in remote Kaineng Center and relax your trading troubles away with a nice massage.
Luckily, Argos Soft created this neat tool to do your own price checking, called the GwEstimator. Here’s a screen shot of what a common search looks like:
As you can see, you get a range of recent trade posts from Kamadan. With this many “price checks” it’s easy to get an estimated value, as well as find out what kinds of things people are willing to trade for.
