My trust in the “Player Run Market” for Apparel-Items was shattered by CCP multiple times.
Remember the six different Outlaw Bundles. First there were versions for Guristas, Sasha’s and Blood Raiders, every version available as a male and a female version. These bundles were available in the NES-store for Amrum (yes, they were introduced a long time ago) and they had a good value in the player market (several hundred ISK). One day the versions for Guristas and Blood Raiders were flooded by CCP into the game, so that the owners of these versions suffered a loss of 99% of value. Only the Sansha versions was excepted from this inflation.
The same happened to several other items in the past. Skins are also prone to this kind of inflation.
As a consequence you must accept receiving some regularly sucker punches if you are interested in collecting and trading Apperel-Items or Skins.
That’s the reason I don’t purchase recent those “New” apparel items from New Eden Store.
I still remember they released SoE new apparels in the NES for several hundreds PLEX and then bundled them to IRL currency packs, thus made them few millions worth item in the game.
It’s not likely to happen being made existing apparels soul-bound items though, I guess they can try to introduce some sorts of soul-bound augmentations, hairs or something else like that.
Yep Those items were given to winners of faction lore propaganda contest and quiz program on twitch live.
Expected up to around 10 or so for each of items so far.
The price will be ranging from 10 to 25 billions for each complete set in my guess.
They are not much extremely rare, however they have exclusive unique graphic models, which is highly featuring major empires, thus, they would be one of the most popular limited apparels.
Just wanted to share this with you, I finally got - Women’s ‘Hephaestus’ Pants (green) - to complete my ‘Hephaestus’ Apparel collection, not very happy with the 6 bill isk price but had to jump on it since I’ve been looking quite a long time for that item.
So yeah, I now have all of the male and female ‘Hephaestus’ Apparel items, that’s tops, bottoms and footwear for each color = Blue, Cyan, Desert (camo), Grey/Orange, Green, Red/White. That’s 36 ‘Hephaestus’ apparel items total, 18 male and 18 female.
My collection now has a total of 750 different male/female apparel items.
By the way, I checked on those ‘Proven Bioadaptive Masks’, only 1 available for male characters and the price is 21.5 bill isk… damn, talk about sky high pricing…
Seems you were right, I should have jumped on getting the male and female versions back when we first discussed them, could have got both for 17 bill isk total.
Oh well, just a couple more items on my ‘To Get’ list…
Congratulation on the completion of the Hephaestus set. Finally it’s time for ccp to flood the market with the green version, like they did it with the red/white version some months earlier. Maybe they will first choose the desert set, so you can enjoy your bling green version some time longer.
Hey DMC, sorry for the late response. I’m recently busy irl a little bit but still checking new apparels occasionally so you can trust this thread still
Congratulations for your completion of the Hephaestus collection
To be honest I’m a little bit surprised it took so long for you despite you are one of the best apparel collector in the New Eden
I believe of course you have all the empire Stargate crew series set too ?
Exactly those masks are pretty expensive right now … it can’t be helped. No one can predict their prices unless you’re Hilmar.
That’s why I usually acquire almost all those seemingly exclusive apparels at the beginning of their release. That’s a sort of insurance.
I have done such behavior so many times and half of them are in success. But the rest of them brought horrifying consequences. But that’s all hindsight anyway.
There is a proverb we all the dudes in this thread need to remember in our language: “Whenever you want it, that’s the time to buy.”
