hello,
I been looking for a Char on bazzar char trading forum. and been seeing that some people are buying or selling chars for more then they are normally worth.
becuase of the SP you get back and drop them were you want.

any ideas if its worth buying and selling toons. before the bubble breaks ?

I wouldn't think it's really worth it. Whenever you sell a character, you have to pay the $15 to transfer it, and I hear the exchange rate from isk back to cash isn't too great Wink

~edit~ $20, I was close.

Didn't check it but with the big transfer fee for each sale, trading chars doesn't look that interesting.

Why would anyone pay $15 to transfer a character when you can use 2 PLEXes?

Then again why would anyone spend 2 PLEXes to transfer a character when it's cheaper to pay $15.


edit: Scratch that. It's $20 or 1 PLEX for a transfer, so it's actually cheaper to use a PLEX

Let's just start by saying that there is no bubble. As time goes on more and more ISK is available in game because loads of ISK is created every second but not nearly enough ISK is removed from the environment.

If anything then characters will get more expensive because more noobs will find EVE once walking in stations goes live and those noobs won't have the patience to wait 2-3 years to train up a fun character (yes, if you engage in expectation management you can have fun with a 2 week old char).

However, straight up flipping rarely works because there tends to be too much competition. Buy characters which don't have awesome stats/skills and train them for a few months to resell at decent profits. This is more attractive before DEC 14 since you then get to spend the learning skills in ways to make the char more valuable.
