The Bars, the Bars...

Recommended Posts

A Q for the higher-level alchers out there, really.

 

Just hit alch 98, and while doing stuff to level is okay, I try to do other things just to do "something different", which reduces repetition and adds to game play of course.

 

When it comes to alching, I realised I'd hit 98 without ever having made some items. Just eliminated one by making 6 seridium bars.

 

Those items were all higher-level bars, from tin and up. (Actually made a handful of tin and seridium bars, though in both cases only to "do something different", and they so far gather dust in storage).

 

 

 

The question for the high-level alchers is... do you do any of the (tin and up) bars? If you do, why? (Personal use? Sell?) Do you feel there's a value to making them if you do (or tried to at some point)?

 

Hydro bars have their obvious value, lots of making/buying/selling going on with them, so for the sake of the discussion, let's skip those.

 

 

tin/copper/bronze bars - Is there any value in going through all the trouble to make two different types of hard bars, to make a different hard bar? Market?

 

seridium bars - a handful of higher-level medallions, night visor... are these made enough to warrant the making/selling of these bars? Better to make them only when you yourself need them to make these items?

 

wolf bars - 10 wolf ores and a serp stone, value? I know some uses for them, but especially with consideration to the serp stone, do you find them valuable to actually make?

 

 

 

 

Basically looking for feedback on the market for such items, their usefulness, and whether people who have tried them have found it worthwhile to do so considering the time it takes with sword/glom making and such.

I'm only making the bars for own use.

 

I made bronze armor, swords and meds for own use and if people asked for them.

 

As far as I remember, I have never sold any of the bars.

I make seridium bars a lot for crafting and I used to make wolf bars for great swords (I don't bother any more because it's so much cheaper to just buy a great sword). As for the others, I've never made, bronze, tin or copper bars and havn't even bothered reading the books.

 

I don't think they're worth making to sell, they are all very difficult to sell except wolf bars but you'll lose a few k on each one at the prices they go for.

I never found a market for any of the bars except for the occasional seri bar (excluding hydo/wolf of course) bronze bars are a lot of work and i've found most make themselves.

Hmmm.... kay, sounds like what I was thinking based on months of watching market. Can only recall one time someone asking to buy bronze bars, and maybe 2-3 for seridium at most. Hard to determine usefulness with little info.

 

Guess I'll stick to the plan... make a couple just to say "I did it" :blush: Save 'em for my own use should the time arise. As an all-rounder, it could happen... maybe. :)

I make all the bars, (just made my 1st 2 dvarium bars!! :icon13: ). Including hydro etc. I do it to keep myself entertained. Im currently building up a stash of all the rare bars (except tin and copper, i use them to make bronze ofc). Im probably the only person who makes and sells the harder bars regularly, it's nice to have a niche.

 

(i should mention, my ingame name isnt Ilyk)
