Hey been watching you flips for past days, and your margins on weapons are great!

Recently started looking at the higher tier weapons, any adevice you can give?
I use the 90weaps pc fc and there forums for prices, but struggle to actually buy anything.
Any advice would be great !!

Hey!

I tried T90 weapons myself, as you can see, didn't have much luck, the buy-sell times are so much longer than nex armors/gwd2 weapons, so i don't bother with them. I honestly probably made the most money from Shadow Glaives. Usually what i do for most items is: check the price, see if they're climbing/crashing. If they're climbing i add 50-150k, if crashing - remove 50-150k. Try and sell them. If i instant buy, i try to do small margins 50-200k, it takes some time, but they sell. If they don't i try to get my money back. Nex and SS has some info on margins for gwd2 and nex items. flipchat1 has info on gwd1 and gwd2 items. I can usually get a pretty consistent 400-500k margin on nex armors and shadow glaives, so for now i stick to them.

Also what helps sometimes is checking how often the price grap for items is updated, that gives some indication as to how often the item is traded in the grand exchange.

You could also try finding items yourself by doing what i do with low margins, finding items that buy fast, finding the perfect spot for the item where the margin is just right so you can buy fast and sell fast. Find the prices at which you can buy them according to averages so they buy in time.

Honestly i just think i got lucky finding the right items fast.

And as i said T90 weapons seem to buy/sell slow (the limit doesn't help), but maybe I just can't find the right prices to buy them since actual price checking isn't an option. Price checking chats is a great place to start.


First of thanks for replying =)

Okay that makes sense, i usually try push 300k-600k margins on the T90s, which either happened really quickly (so rare) or takes a day. Glad to see it wasn't just me having problems with the time it took to buy and sell these!

Thanks for the tip on finding the right price, i was going to start by slowly increasing by 50k and leave it for a bit and see if it helps, but you've said makes more sense.

Most of my flips have been small items, and besides getting a decent long term investment haven't done much, so thought I'd give the higher tier weapons a shot. After having very little success wanted to see how others were having any better luck than me.

Thank you very much for the advice and information and keep smashing out those flips!
