You can *craft* Black/Deep Red, ffs. (Schematic from the Reputation vendors on Oricon.) Looks sweet on some gear. (There are some boots where the part that runs up the leg is "secondary", and on those, Black/Deep Red is a serious fail.)

My best selling crafted dyes are combinations of red and black together. They are the highest demanded dyes and can usually be sold for 80-100k each if idiots are trying to be the cheapest on the GTN and drive the price into the ground.

It always blows my mind that these dyes ever go below 70k because even when they are at 80k, I have trouble keeping up with demand and that’s with other people listing around the same prices. (I use 2 lvl 50 comps to make them too).

When I see them drop below 70k I stop listing till they go back up because it’s a waste of resources and time when I can make and sell half as many and make more profit in the long run.
When the price goes below 50k, I just buy the lot and relist later.

ITEM DUPE - CREDIT SELLER SCAM


Basically what is happening is that there is a credit seller that is using stolen accounts to sell black/black dyes cheap to convert into credits. They are using a handful of alts to sell, and they are posting them every few days. So far it is only on the SS server, and the devs either haven't caught on, or they don't care. There is a another post about in the forums just a few days ago. I wish they would look into it really.

Where is your proof? Or are you just guessing?

Because as I pointed out earlier, black black dyes are the drops from the current CM crates. I purchased one to test my theory and sure enough, I got a black dye.

You also have the fact that they were 50% off about 4 weeks ago.

Indeed, I remember thinking about buying one at that time to sell on the GTN but didn't. I think it is too much of a coincidence that right after the discount went away we suddenly get bombarded with them on the GTN.

Im not saying there can't be an item dupe scam going on, but I find it more likely that it is just a typical hoard-and-dump scheme.

They were cheaper than 8 million on some servers; they did go down to 7 million. Someone moaned about the low prices in this thread accusing "credit sellers". A guess they missed the CM sale that led to the market being flooded.

I am checking frequently dye prices and on Tulak Hord I didn't see any comparable price drop. And even after discounts on those dyes in the cartel market they normally don't drop that low on the GTN. At least on this server.

I also have a legacy on Tulak Hord and to be honest the GTN economy there is not really comparable to the other servers, especially the amercian ones, because you basically have a german market in Star Wars. You have many large stock traders that set extremely high price points and won't budge easily, counting on long term sells instead of the quick buck. It's a very tough market if you are an impatient buyer, but very good as a patient seller because you dont have to deal with extreme undercutting as much as on the other servers. Us germans are simply not a haggling folk.

I'm not worried. After I finally stopped buying decos like crazy, I made 1 billion each on 2 servers buying blk/blk dye at 15m and selling at 25m. If 8m becomes the new norm, and I doubt it, then so be it. If people want to pay $15 real money for 8 million credits in game, that's to Bioware's credit.

Worst case scenario, I'll have a whole bunch of black black dye to give away come Halloween.

8 mil for black dyes is still good value, since black/black dyes are always good on almost all outfits. If there is a dupe item issue then black dyes will go much lower like 1 million instead due to sudden supply.
