    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.

    I love the idea. I think sts should consider this as well. If everything can be tradable, why not this as well. It's very crazy, but isn't it in this case?

    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.
    This is woudl not happen. People would buy loads of them and after 2 days the price would drop immediately.

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.
    You got my attention here.

    I've already given my counter argument in an earlier post which you probably haven't read.

    You're thinking short term as I see it. In the span of a week, the price of the elixirs would keep decreasing. In the span of maybe 2 weeks, the demand for elixirs would have increased again due to the shortage. It is a cycle.

    I like the sound of the cycle. Hopefully all goes well if this goes through.

    I'd definitely buy it, with 90$ I'd make 20 mill and that's a lot of money
    K i think we all know you can buy platinum now

    i just dont think this would work. Ill stick to daily blessings. No ones gonna spend mils on 5x or 4x,let alone the others. And with the new blessings out... just wouldnt work
