    Boom goes the Ecto price. But I guess at least Crystalline Dust will become a bit cheaper now.

    Rare and exotic minis have *seriously* come down in price. Worth a look if you were waiting for this.

    Thanks for the headsup Saph. Any idea why this has happened?

    Ok, thanks for the info Saph. The sad thing is that I cannot take advantage of this, since I am stuck at work and will be until the end of times. I don't suppose someone would be willing to put up a competitive buy order for and Undead Chicken for me? I've got the gold to pay for it... ;(

    Tldr; Anet fucked up and introduced an extremely common "rare" mini which people upgraded into exotics. Also, other rare minis are now worth less since their only real value was to be forged into exotics.
    This is probably the funniest sentence I've read all day, and I only just woke up!

    can someone write a program that will predict how anet will fug up the market next so we can all make loads of cash.

    I'm still trying to get my head around the ecto price fix.

    Seconded. Somehow I was under the impression that the lower ecto price was intended to allow players to more easily acquire lategame items like Mystic Forge weapons and Legendaries. Apparently I was mistaken.

    I had this niggling feeling that I should have bought ectos. . .

    The idea (apparently) was to keep ectos reasonably valuable whilst increasing the supply of crystalline dust, which had gotten pretty low.

    I know what the stated reason was, but the price of ecto's was around 18s; which didn't seem particularly low to me, while the price of crystalline dust was too high becuase people had stopped farming it in Orr and the simple way to improve that is to increase the drop rate slightly.

    and while it does seem to have had the desired effect on dust it just means that a few people made a killing off ecto's as their price (due to the easy availability) has dropped back down already.

    seems like it is a good time to buy dust, since there doesn't seem to be any financial benefit in turning ecto's into dust.

    Is it still laggy as boogery? Had the rage so many times last night, was disconnected over 10 times and suffered fight ending lag so many times that Yaargh and Tweets bored silly hearing me moan constantly... (as it were)

    Silly anet people not properly management patch releases. (again)

    I wouldn't know, since I'm at work.

    which is why I'm posting on here rather than playing

    Ecto wasn't especially low before (though it was a little low by long-run standards). However, it has been slowly but steadily falling in price -- I take it that Anet hope the dust change will help to stabilise the price.

    as i have said in other thread, greatsword is nice (if a little too similar to pearl version) but the hammer is not big enough imho, should be far more visually weighty

    agreed, I don't really like the swords, and the hammer looks too flimsy but the Staff and shield look awesome, and the axe is pretty good too.
