    Holy, talk about a delay reaction or response. I threw that comment out to see if I can get a "knee jerk reaction", but I did not expect to happen a few weeks later. How long has this been almost a month? Hell, you can give a Sloth a run for their money on the slowest animal on earth.

    "I have more BS on my account than you", um who cares? it is not particularly hard or an accomplishment to have a BS on an account any more. Hell, I have quite a few myself just to be self sufficient. What this tells me is you have needlessly wasted more time in this game than I have in pressing a button or two, so um congrats.

    "So , better not judge others before actually knowing someone.". Who are you lmao?, Your a rando on the internet that like me wastes their time doing a meaningless task of collecting pixels in a video game and your going to give me life advice, LMAO. In short,

    I do not care or want to waste my time in getting to know you. From your two posts I have even a lower opinion of you. You seem to be a cringy kid that some how equates "wasting time in a video game" to some type of importance, that I for one should care about.

    Hopefully this time, I be able to read your response sometime in this year.

    I'm a merchant so it really hurts seeing these prices, right now merchanting feels way worse than it did when I left (although tbf right now there are no events, anniversary just ended, and Genshin just came out). What's curious to me is that extremely popular xtals like Tuscog are still dirt cheap... but I'm still trying to figure out the reason behind the prices and market in general.

    There are markets that are still profitable including event items, rare dyes, and other things (some of which I want to keep secret since there's both low demand & supply), but when I left I was pretty confident that merchanting makes much more spina than cheating via botting. Sadly, with the current market, I don't feel like that's still true. Time will tell though...

    Hoarding limited and popular items is a legitimate way to merchant though... if you're sensitive to the activities of other hoarders, you should be fine. People tend to be impatient and don't wait 6-9 months before reselling, which tends to be the best time. Market fixing and manipulating the CB market-fixing of other hoarders is one way to merchant. With less than 10 hours of work on buying & selling, I've made 500+m on some of my better investments in the past.

    It isn't completely true anymore. Just look black/white dyes prices. They used to be around 1m each part before 11m downloads event and dropped to 100-200k during said event. It's already been 7 months since then and their price is still the same.

    People over spread that hoarding is a good idea overall and youtubers spreading "farm event guides" just make it even worse.

    Being a merchant is still profitable if you're smart enough to monitor market demands without relying on others' advice (aka git gud) and, ofc, if you keep "secrets" to yourself.

    I don't know what event you're mentioning, but I think that's a case where a ton of people (even non-merchant) thinks it's a good hoard so there ends up being ridiculous supply and not enough demand. some weapon Black dyes are still really profitable, whereas some are oversaturating CB beyond repair. Black (and blue 50) dyes are often overvalued even when I played in 2017. just have to be really up-to-date on everything (even obscure stuff or illegal stuff, especially botting/cheaters because of how influential they are on prices) and learn from bad investments and you'll find profit. I think merchanting is only viable after like 5-10m though, since its possible profit depends on your current spina amount. If you have a lot of spare time, you can always do merchanting + other job (like statting).

    Yup! I completely agree :3 It's by far the quickest way to double/triple your current spina with little time spent (although sometimes you just randomly get screwed over by uncontrollable/unforseeable things)... and in my opinion it's really fun *-* But still I feel like it's not as great as it used to be overall. I don't want to judge so soon though, I'm still relearning the basics of Toram itself (just learned how to dash yesterday xD )

    Hoarding is usually the way, but not here. People are over-hoarding them.
    Imagine every single player has a second acc for storage and they filled it full with event apps, then they try to sell after event thinking its a big brain strats, markets crashed.
    Take a look at Neo Maton, it's used to be expensive but because of mod+hoarders, it floats around like around 1m
    Odelon also used to be 5m per pcs, but nowadays it dropped to 1m

    The market cycle goes like New event-new stuff- prices are high-last day cb-event ends
    If you thinking to farm the event stuff next years, forget it because it's dead-on-arrival
    The event must be the first appearance to make profits, the gemrunners will destroy it when it comes for the second time and it will never recovers

    But yeah, that's life or merchant, can't predict every single thing
    Just hope that your prediction are correct and you can make as much profits before someone notices it and make yt vids about it

    Is modding a popular thing now?? That means like damage mod righ? That sounds really dumb and messed up (why even play if you're just going to cheat smh -.-). Do only a few people do it or a lot? Why hasn't Venena II price gone down then?

    Hoarders aren't really responsible for low prices usually, unless they're desperate and made a mistake (like hoarded a stack of XTALS which are dropping in price everyday), or lots of hoarders panic selling and competing with each other when there's low demand. They often drive up the price by artificially "buying" low ones and some even market fix so that it costs higher than it's natural market price to sell higher per xtal... When something is ridiculously cheap, botters/orb farmers/modders(?) are almost always the main culprit.
