Question about a trade?

Recommended Posts

I can't keep up with the recent fluctuations either. Can someone update me on the relative valus? They seem to be, rarity wise, more or less like this:

1. - CB Gold: 3 or 4 CB Silvers

2. - CB Silvers: 1 or 2 CB Green Coppers

3. - CB Green Copper: 2 CB Red Coppers, 4 CB Brown Coppers, 2 or 3 Trios, 2 or 3 Gaias, 3 or 4 other Xenos, 2 or 3 Almandines, 3 or 4 Spessartines

 

Edit to add: I was thinking that a topic to discuss the perceived relative values of the CB Rares would be quite useful. Things change fast!

Sounds about right. That does not mean that traders, for example someone that caught a couple of CB Almandines, would agree with you. The Almandines used to be extremely hard to catch until few weeks ago and many still did not adapt to the present situation.

Any idea which Xenos are more popular? I would think, from the trades:

1. Gaia

2. Chromo

3. Mageia

4. Pyro

5. Thalassa

6. Astrapi

In my (limited and outdated) experience, Thalassas, Gaias, and Chronos seem to be the most popular, but I just got back from a hiatus so someone else should probably weigh in.

 

Also, while I'm here, what are CB Spessartines going for? I need a ton of them for an upcoming lineage project. ;-;

Spessartines nowadays are quite easy to catch, easier than Xenos. But people are not yet used to that so you can still read someone trying to trade a Spessartine for a CB Silver or Gold. At the same time, other traders are asking for CB Hatchies. Frankly, I would not suggest offering more than a CB Trio or a few BSA hatchies for a Spessartine, maybe a Xeno, if you're feeling generous.

I've seen a lot of trade posts lately asking for a CB common hatchling or 2 in exchange for one CB Spessartine. I've also seen a post of someone offering a CB Brown Copper 1:1 for a CB Spessartine and someone else offering a CB Chrono 1:1 for a CB Spessartine.

hello everyone

 

i was wondering about this egg 4G Shimmer from deceased CB Shimmer is this lineage not liked also what could it worth now ?

 

Thanks happy.gif

The deceased Shimmer was not actually a CB Shimmer. It appears to have been a 2nd gen. You can still see the parents if you click on the tombstone and then on the lineage link.

 

4th gen Prizes in general are not worth a lot in trading and I suspect that yours is worth less because it is a dead line.

Oh O.o ! i didnt see that .. so basically it is a 5G not 4G and i guess yes it is worthless

 

thanks a lot for the hints

I have 1 CB silver lunar herald and 1 CB spessartine and I want to trade them but I dont know how much they value these days. Thoughts? I would like to get a CB blusang.

 

Also just for curiosity, the spessartine is more valuable than a volcano pyrope, right?

Just my two cents... Lunars drop quite more often than Blusangs but, there's quite a bit of demand for them, probably because a specific color is not always available. Spessartines are quit less rare than they used to be but, since they started to be readily available not long ago, they are still as valuable as Blusangs. Long story short: you could possibly get one Blusang for each but, most definitely, one Blusang for the combo.

 

According to this post Spessartines and Pyropes are generated equally. I don't doubt that is a fact nowadays but, still my opinion, Pyropes used to drop quite more frequently so everybody and their sister got those and that did not happen to Spessartines. Long story short: I think that Spessartines are still more valuable than Pyropes, not sure for how long.

Looking for a quick answer (trade it's offered on grows up in a few hours) if anyone is online and knows - is a 2g lineage from the honorary Midas Dorkface II worth anything? Or rather, would its offspring be worth anything? It's not one I've come across before, though I tried googling and found some of the history of the cb in relation to the actual Dorkface.

 

I quite like the idea of breeding it into my perfect checker Dorkface lineage, but I'm not sure how it compares to the 2g Hollykin it's offered on. Which I also like the idea of building lineages with... unsure.gif

 

On that topic, how much *is* a 2g Hollykin worth (if I kept this one and wanted to seek out a mate for it without actually aspiring to the impossible 2g Holly perfect checker mate...)? White from F Holly if that makes a difference.

 

 

 

Tldr; I have a 2g White Hollykin hatchie and have been offered a 2g Midas Dorkface II and want to know if anyone collects the honorary Dorkface lineages? If I keep the Hollykin how much to get a similar Hollykin as a mate?

Personally, I would put a bit more value on the White. CB Hollies are still ultrarare and that makes 2g descendants quite rare as well. Unless you have an easy way to replace that Holly 2g, I just don't think an honorary Dorkface descendant can compare. Now if you can easily replace your Holly 2g, or if you were talking about a 2g Dorkface from the Midas Dorkface, that would be quite a different story...

Awesome to know, thank you for the quick response! I have a few more hours to mull it over before making a decision, but that's very helpful.

Hi there,

 

can someone tell me what CB Rainbow Coppers are currently worth?

Any chance I can get a 3rd-4th gen Prize?

My question is similar to Gluria's. What is a 3G prize worth anyway? I've had a lot of trouble trading for one, and I hear that they're not that rare too?

You should be able to get a 3rd gen Prize, just keep offering and be patient. 4th Gen Prizes are not worth a CB Copper.

The issue with 3G is that, in general, the breeders "paid" a lot to get the 2G they own and they try to get their "investment" back smile.gif

ETA: Check your PMs. And, no, I do not want anything.

Thanks for the answer NotBambi. I see what you mean with 3G breeders, lol. If that's the case, I think it's more convenient for me to work harder to get a 2G instead smile.gif

It depends on breeder to breeder. If you see someone asking an arm and leg, probably worth trying another trade. I have several 3G prizes and I didn't trade with cb copper or any cb rare for any of them. smile.gif A lot of breeders are pretty kind and usually just look for what they need for scroll goals rather than what is the ROI.

 

And as NotBambi said, lately 4G prizes trade very poorly so I personally do not see the point of paying a lot for 3G. They are just for my collection.

Thanks for the tip! Lately I had been offering around 2 CB rares for 3G prizes, without very good results. I understand there are breeders who don't ask for much, but they seem a little harder to find these days! The logic behind my working harder for a 2G is that my effort will be worthwhile. But alas, next time I gather my rares for trading I hope to find someone who will be interested~

Unfortunately, I can't help with you with the 3rd Gen right now I just bred my 2G and 3G but only the 3G cooperated. Remind me and I'll try again. In the meantime, I'm on my way to drop this on the Departure threads.

ETA: I was wrong, one 2G decided to cooperate. Check your PMs.

I traded a red copper for a 3g Prize just yesterday, someone offered me my pick of their prize lineages, so it should be possible. Good luck!

Trying to trade 2G PB Alt Undines is confusing me! laugh.gif

 

Last week I had 1 up, and was offered a CB Silver. Which I know has got to be a right place/right time not the norm situation.

 

But previously I've been offered multiples from my profile wishlist in exchange for 1 Alt Undine. Yet this weekend, when I have a pair (M & F) 2G PB Alt Undines up, I'm getting a lot of stuff offered I'm not asking for, really long lineaged Shims and Tins (5g +), messy Reds that are like 6g +, and other assorted weirdness.

 

Setting aside people are mostly ignoring my trade post "wants", and sending random stuff, what is realistic to ask for 1? For a pair?

 

I know it all comes down to what others see as its value to them, but I'm lost due to how it changes week to week when I put up trades. I'm now not sure if turning down 1 or 2 CB Almandine or Spesseatine was wise.

 

Thanks!

 

ETA- Got a cb Silver for this pair as well. So, now I'm really confused as to actual value. laugh.gif
