Now that we go the transfers, I'm earning so much more money than I used to, I make millions now. I have 2 50s, so theres my dailies, I get into raids more often with higher population and FPs. I'm glad I transferred. This was probably the jesus patch.

Character transfers are not a patch feature.

I have noticed on my new server that things are ungodly expensive on the GTN. So just for multiple plies of fecal matter and short spasmodic expressions of amusement, I listed a green item I got as a loot drop at 20 times the default price the GTN gave me and it sold.

I guess its OK that I made good money off of that but then I went to buy some class 1 gemstones and it was 75K for a 10 spot. I just made Khem go get them for me.

LOL I have the opposite problem. My companion gifts now sell for about half the price that they used to go for. $75K for a 10 stack is insane though.

I actually spend MORE credits now buying things i couldn't on my other server. The only credits i get now are from PVP. But I transfered over with about 7 million credits so no biggie. My 3 lvl 50s need nothing, and I make just about everything that my other 2 alts need or can use.

I'm in the same boat so to speak.

I spent a ton of credits buying gear and mats from my old server before I transferred off.

When I got to the new server, the first couple days was amazing. Selling all the same stuff for nearly ten times the amount what I bought it for.

It was a risk but it worked out. The new server has been my biggest cash cow and it's great.

I only have like 3.5 mil between both of my mains....I can't seem to make any money in this game. I have heard of people making tens of millions from selling augment gear back when that was new...

I have to sell my crystals and sugmented sabers for half the price I used to sell them at. *sad Bluestone*

Mentioned this in a different thread, but...

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=485413

Synopsis: As somebody on a destination server, ship parts prices have gone WAY down, and there's a massive glut of them on the market. "Finished" synthweaving armor has remained about the same, armormech stuff a tad more in demand, (but not enough so to 'cause me to raise prices yet) blue earpieces up a bit in price, (purple ones actually starting to sell) purple implants actually started to sell reasonable well, blue implants and augmented custom stuff, (except PvP gloves/boots) roughly doubling in price. Still haven't reached a "stable" price point for the artifact lvl 49 augments yet after more than doubling. (stable being demand matching supply at that price point... still spending most of my time "sold out")

Not sure though whether or not the increased sales make up for the overcrowding though, I wasn't really strapped for cash before.

edit: The ship part thing is actually sort of absurd. There's *at least* a full page of each artifact part up for sale, just about all of 'em from different people. (I expect each and every server probably had 1 or 2 cybertechs "in control" of that market.) Every hour or so somebodies higher priced auction will expire, and they'll turn around and undercut whichever is the current lowest auction. I rather suspect the prices have already dropped below the mat prices. (not sure why, but even before the transfers ship parts were the only place I ever saw significant undercutting, though sales were high enough that the undercutting didn't really serve much purpose, price would eventually bump back up. 'Course, IIRC cybertech was also one of the later markets I entered.) I suspect if none of us were undercutting, we'd all be making more money. (I actually don't undercut, I match the lowest price, and have still been selling a reasonable amount)
