Question about a trade?

Recommended Posts

how much would a CB Lunar Herald be worth / how rare are they currently?

I think they're on the side of slightly common but not a blocker. I see them quite a bit in cave - and in the departures thread.

 

I saw someone do a successful trade asking for one and offering a cheese, so you could get an unbreedable? Maybe a swap for a nebula or BSA (egg)?

If you've made an offer on a trade, and the other person hasn't accepted/declined yet, what is a reasonable amount of time to give them before cancelling your offer?

 

I know I CAN cancel it at any time, just wondering what people think is polite.

Would a 2G purebred Frill be worth anything? Are bred Frills worth anything at all? How about CB Frills?

 

What generation of Prize would you no longer consider worth trading for? ie a 5G stairstep? I've been giving away all of my Prizes that are 7G or higher but I dunno if that's a bad idea or not.

 

How rare are Aeons?

Personally, I don't think that any amount of time (short or long) can be considered impolite. I mean, if you offer somewhere, but see something else you prefer even just an hour later, or simply change your mind, you're entirely justified in cancelling your offer right then. It is after all, just an offer, and not a promise or an IOU.

 

If the other player didn't have a chance to see your offer, well, they won't miss what they don't know about. And if they did see it and didn't accept it right away, it appears that they're holding off for a better offer and keeping yours in case nothing better comes along.

 

And if it's a case of being unable to accept right away because of being locked, that has happened to me on both sides of the deal, and I've always been able to reach an agreement through PM.

 

On the other hand, I believe the reverse is true as well, if a trader wants to keep offers waiting for as long as possible in the hopes of getting a better one, that is their privilege. They do run the risk of having people cancel their offer, but it's for them to decide if the risk is worth it.

 

Basically, what I mean is that, outside of a mutual agreement, you don't owe anything to a trader, and they don't owe anything to you.

Thanks, littleironhorse =)

 

In this case, I offered exactly what they asked for, so I don't think they're holding out for a better trade. They haven't made a post since the trade post in question. I can't tell if they're egg-locked because their scroll isn't sorted in a convenient way. And I sent them a PM telling them the egg is ready to hatch, so they'll know if I cancel the offer. I guess I'll leave it for a few more hours though. They might be unable to access for some reason.

I think 2g PB Frills and CB Frills might be worth something for lineage builders or Frill lovers, with CBs being considered slightly more valuable to collectors than the lineaged ones.

 

As for prizes, stairsteps and spirals seem to lose most of their worth past 4g. I tried trading 4gs in the past but wasn't very successful, which has made me think that most of their worth is towards 3g or lower. I've seen that for some, it might depend on the rarity of the line (e.g. which CB Prize it descends from.) Prize checkers might also have a different worth, but those are much trickier to construct and trade for, sadly.

 

As for Aeons, I think they're quite valuable. Haven't seen many in the biomes recently so i'd rank them around CB Trios and CB Fire Gems but lower than CB Silvers and CB Golds.

 

Please correct me if i've left anything out or if i've got bits completely wrong. smile.gif

I'm new to trades and one thing that makes me nervous is wheather what I have is equal to what I'm asking for. Let's say I had a Cb pryo (which seems to be the less wanted one) what could I ask for in return that wouldn't be outrageous? Other uncommons? A CB BSA? I don't know.

You can ask whatever you want, other Xenowyrms and rare considered breeds like Coppers and Blusangs, maybe a couple of commone hatchlings.

Is there any idea of what a paper dragon egg is worth in relation to olive hatchies?

One or two hatchies, depending on who's looking. I've been trying to stop grabbing unbreedables because if they do get offers, they tend to be slower in coming than for things like xenos and coppers.

Thanks. No wonder I didn't get any bites, I was asking for 4 xd.png

Save for CB Gaia Xeno (green), all CB xenos seem to be more/less wanted depending on people. None of the others are consistently high in demand and have their phases. Trading isn't as complicated as it looks, the worst that will happen is you won't get any offers. There is no penalty for even asking CB gold for a messy common, but that trade is realistically impossible. My advice to you is not to worry too much and experiment along the way, look at other trades too for some ideas on price. All the best. smile.gif

 

Is a second gen Astrapi from Mageia parents worth anything? what could I ask for it? thanks

Not worth much, I am afraid. Colorfail reduces trade value and bred xenos aren't particularly hard to get.

Hm... I had no WiFi for all of April Fools, so naturally I had no chance of getting an April Fool's egg.

 

Would people who own one accept a Paper egg for an upside down Mint or Balloon? I'm not really sure about how much these are worth.

 

Edit: Also, would it be plausible to offer a 2G Snow Dragon or Soulstone IOU?

Unfortunately, I highly doubt it. Some people are successfully trading them for CB Golds and 2nd gen Prizes. Obviously, some people are gifting them. As always, you either have to be lucky or "wealthy".

Not too much I think. For people trying to build particular lineage, however, it might be a different story. I remember trading one of mine and got a cb xeno in return at some point, but people's interest comes and goes, so there.

 

Oh I just noticed that someone already solved this problem. Never mind me then rolleyes.gif

So im currently working on trading for an upside down mint hatchling. Does anyone know if once full grown it will be upside down? Or do you have to freeze as a hatchling? I dont really want to trade something amazing for one to have it turn out to be a regular mint.

No one has any idea yet because none of them can grow up before midnight tonight (EST). One or two people have frozen theirs and they stayed upside down, but it's impossible to be certain at this point whether the adults will also be upside down.

What are 2nd gen PB golds and silvers worth these days?

I've been trying to trade one of each for a few days now, and not a single bite.

Is a CB Xeno really too much to ask for huh.gif
