    Default Elixirs trade-able?

    Before some of you start with the raging and sarcastic comments, I'd like to say that trade-able elixirs have worked well in Arcane Legends.

    There's nothing to explain here. All I have to say is that people would buy elixirs to get a good amount of gold for them. This results in more platinum purchases, so it is good for STS. And obviously it would benefit the players as well.

    If you happen to disagree with me, please don't make sarcastic comments. I appreciate a logically backed opinion.

    I don't know is this would be a potential problem but one person coding elixirs as an inventory item and then giving it the ability to be sold in cs/traded seems a bit much

    No one will buy for plat if they can buy it from others for gold

    Who's going to buy it from others if others don't buy it with plat?

    @Groaning If people have a better incentive to buy an elixir then the money generated from plat purchases would be well worth the work it would take to make an extra inventory and cs slot and convert elixirs into items.

    Make everything trade-able. Plat, elix, pet everything. Why not.

    It would depend on how much gold someone would pay for a 5star elixer I wouldn't purchase the elixir to sell if it was less then 1.5mill but others might. I'd definitely purchase elixir and sell it if it was worth that much in gold because I only have 1.1mill in gold but I'm able to buy platinum.

    I'd definitely buy it, with 90$ I'd make 20 mill and that's a lot of money

    I dont support this. Not trying to be rude but this is very stupid. Plat purchases would actually decrease because if there are enough elixers floating around no need to purchase platinum.

    I'm not a farmer. As a PvPer, I absolutely would not spend platinum just to level up. But there are those people who buy platinum just for PvE. If they could utilise some of that platinum to make some gold directly, why not?

    In my mind this is what the situation would be:
    Initially few people buy elixirs because they want others to buy for them. Realising the demand for elixirs and the lack of supply, they start buying elixirs themselves to sell. Eventually it becomes a standard way to make gold in PL.

    What would you recommend if everyone found out about this method and began to buy elixers just so they would de value. This would most likely happen because people would figure this out and assume they could make heaps of gold. This wouldnt be the case if everyone began to buy elixers.

    If everyone began to buy elixirs, STS would make a lot of money lol. Can we not compare making elixirs trade-able to the trade-able plat bought items at end game? People bought them right? The problem with plat bought items is that there is always an increase in the number of such items. When it comes to elixirs, it is a one time use. They come and go. There will always be a deficiency. There will be a slight decrease in price from the first moment of the update to a later stage but that happens for every item. Eventually it will standardize and there will be a balanced inflow and usage of elixirs. Which in turn will encourage buying of more elixirs.

    As I said in my thread, it has already worked in AL. And th reason is the periodic deficiency in elixirs because of its one-time usage as I stated above. I hope I've convinced you.

    Yes I think bears deserve to farm more though because they need to eat more because they are more big.

    Bazinga, I think its a great idea, it would work just like anything else that is bought with plat and the traded for gold, as for how much it would be well that also would be exactly like everything else, it would find its level based on supply and demand, in economics this is refered to price discovery. It works perfectly well everyday on the stock exchange. Ok that may not be the best example, dang those rogue Wall st traders.
    A better example in the real world would be your local Trade and exchange magazine/website.
