Monocle = 12k Aur
Plex = 3500 Aur
Plex price in Jita around 530m

12 000/3500*530m= 1.8b

Any idea why monocle price in Jita is around 760m? They were around 1.2b 2 month ago.

Cost of production(Aka supply) is only relevant if there's demand to meet the supply.

Would be relevant if you could convert Monocles into Plexes.

Also, haven't CCP given out shitloads of free Aurum?
I know they did, cant bother to log in to check the amount atm thou :-) So for a lot of people that was just free Aurum.
Besides, aren't it cheaper to buy Aurum token and convert rather then PLEX? I believe that there were a lot of people that have stocked up in the beginning when people got them and didn't check the going rate but rather sold it to make ISK. For them still it was for free.
It is likely that some trader out there who saw a value in them are trying to cash in, and it don't take that many traders to saturate that market.

I am glad I sold mine when I did :-D

They gave away 5.5k to all active accounts, and then the christmas thingiemagie was another optional 2k in he form of tokens. I don't have any stats, but I'd wager fairly few went for this one compared to pax amarria(or pax ammaria) and the +4's.

But yeah, in total you could collect 7.5k "free" aurum.

Steps:

1: Have a char with 5500 Aurum
2: Buy 6 x 1000 token and 1 x 500 token (total cost circa 470 mil at time of posting)
3: Apply tokens to char with 5500 aurum for 12000 total
4: Buy Monocle on NeX
5: Sell monocle on market for too much ISK (circa 750 mil at time of posting).


I already made as much isk as I was going to off this and sold my monocles so I might as well tell everyone else. Accepting all donations as "thankyous" for making your 5500 aur not so worthless Big smile

I got 5500 free Aurum, quite some time ago, in 3 installments. I think everyone who was subscrubed got that, including one of my alts.

It might be worth the effort to try to convert those Aurum into ISK, if it's worthwhile. Since I didn't pay anything for the Aurum, they're essentially free, and my approach would be that "however much ISK I can get, that's fine with me".

Not sure I'll bother, though. I still expect CCP to implement WiS eventually, and I might want to my avatar to look stylish, so those Aurum could come in handy, a few years from now.

You must be Special here.


I refuse to participate in the AUR trade, I will cash the free stuff in and turn it into ISK, thats where I start and stop.

I will not support the destruction of this game, bin there done that, AUR is dangerous for the future of EvE online longtern well being,

PLEX market has become another situation and will soon turn critical, 2 years, mark my words!.
Its no longer about prices, there's something dark and evil brewing and I really hope CCP is on top of this!, altering prices is a losing, temporary battle, you must get on top of this and set fourth a strategy to alter the PLEX market (regulation).

If you really want to revitalize the AUR/PLEX trade, at least temporarily, then this is the way to do it: NeX Damnation Codpiece

It's the new monocle.

I seem to remember someone having some success using a petition to get the GMs to remove their free Aurum if you really want to show that you're not going to participate.
