This is going to be a detailed update because I’ve got a lot to chat about regarding the latest sales/trades and Armour updates that have come to the Cartel Market this week. I’ll also be shedding some light on how I trade on the GTN and upselling versus knowing when to sell.
Another Cartel Market update showing off the Tythian Disciple Armour set for direct sale. It’s priced at 1700 cartel coins which I think is personally quite steep for this set. The image of the set on the Cartel Market makes it look like the head and chest piece both light up when in fact they don’t. The chest piece pulsates slightly but the headpiece is just red/orange coloured metal of some description.
Judging by the number of forum posts on the official SW: TOR forums regarding RNG and loot drops, I am assuming that the “Bronze” armour loot boxes that plague both cartel market packs and Command pack drops kinda tick people off. At one point, so many people complained about the number of repeated bronze items in Cartel Market packs that BioWare was forced to do something about it and changed the RNG loot drops for CM packs entirely. Sure, you still get a few bronze items in the CM packs to date but the ratio of bronze items to say silver or gold is much more improved than it used to be.
I’ve been looking at YouTube content for SWTOR – one guy on YouTube does a lot of the stuff I do in the game with a particular focus on trading. I’ve been thinking about YouTube and whether or not I should start streaming content or creating content for a Youtube channel that focuses on the stuff I like to do in SWTOR. He seems to be the only person really focusing on trading as opposed to gameplay (there are plenty of other YT channels that do that). So for now, it’s definitely an idea I’d like to think of some more.
