Recently, I have been searching through the FM and in the MTS to do some merchanting. Strangely, I’ve noticed many items that are hammered but still have 2 slots. I was wondering whether or not this actually is worth it.
Personally, I think this is a waste of time and money. Maybe not a waste of time, since it only takes a few seconds. However, I don’t think having the item already hammered actually makes people want to buy it more. Some items I’ve seen like this are: perfect scrolled items (7 slots are perfect scrolled), clean brown work gloves (9 slots after hammering), and other scrolled equips. Ussually, they are godly equips.
For the brown work gloves, I think it is a waste. Some people might even be drawn away from the item BECAUSE it is hammered. They might be scared to fail a scroll and have wasted the extra mesos for paying for the hammered item. I think this is the worst type of hammering of them all (between the 3 listed).
For godly items, I also think this is a waste. Some may argue that it encourages people without nx cash to buy it. However, for most people who can AFFORD a godly item, chances are, they can afford nx either in RL or through mts.
The last type of item I’ve seen hammered with 2 slots left are work gloves (scrolled). This is also a waste. Often people don’t like to scroll their work gloves. Either scared of failing or even of paying for the scrolls.
In conclusion, I think it is dumb to hammer an item before selling it. I don’t think people will pay extra and generally I think it will take longer to sell. I would just sell the item, then either sell nx (though there are a lot of scammers), or buy items through the mts and sell those.
Recently, I’ve been thinking if I should upgrade my site so I can have more features. So far its only a free site (pretty nice right?) , but its still good. I don’t really want to spend too much money on this site, since its actually extra work for me xD, but I decided to let you donate somehow if we get more views. All the donations will go to the site and making it better. 😀
Please vote on this poll and tell me if this is a good idea.
Here is an example of how much it would cost to upgrade my site.
The CSS Upgrade allows you to use your own CSS code to customize the appearance of your blog. CSS allows you to change fonts, colors, borders, backgrounds, and even the layout of the blog.
With the CSS Upgrade, you’ll be able to take any of our 70+ themes and give it a little bit of style, or completely overhaul the design. All of your changes are saved, so if you don’t like your changes, you can easily revert to a previous revision. Please note that the CSS Upgrade does not allow you to upload templates or custom themes.
If you find yourself running out of space for your media files, it’s easy to add more storage to your blog. You can add 5, 15, or 25 gigabytes to your blog, so you’ll have all the room you need to host tons of photos, docs, and music.
Other benefits of more storage space:
Allows you to upload additional filetypes, like MP3s.
Perfect for podcasts—fast storage with permalinks.
I have been thinking of making a REALLY detailed guide on something that a lot of you would want. Something general, not a guide on a specific pq. I will incorporate pictures and screen shots also. So, please vote here on what you would like that guide to be.
*edit* Currently, Training Spots are ontop. I will hold this poll for a few more days 😀
