Rise of Kunark Economic Outlook

An expansion is coming.  The Rise of Kunark will feature a new home town, a new race, as well as new content.

How can your current EQ2 players profit from this upcoming event?

As you can guess, this is something of a follow up thought from my post yesterday about GU37. 

A new race will mean a lot of new, low level characters.  All of those characters will need to be equipped.  All of those characters will be looking for spells, skill, potions, and food.

And they will all want this in a very short period of time.

So start planning now.

Items which I predict will increase in price when this new wave of demand hits:

  • Tier 2 & 3 armor, weapons, skills
  • Bags and boxes
  • Tier 1, 2, & 3 raws materials for trade skills
  • Lower-to-Middle level collections

I think that most people get through adventure level 10 with the equipment that shows up in early quests and do not start thinking about really equipping themselves until they are into their teens.

Bags and boxes people will want right away.  We are all packrats, right?

Raw materials will be in demand, as people start trade skills with fresh characters.  The demand for armor, weapons, and skills will drive some people into trade skills to satisfy their needs.

Collections are everybody’s favorite way to help boost levels on an alt.  Some people will want to buy out complete collections and nearly everybody will have some collections they will want to finish off. 

What items do you think will turn a profit with the coming of Rise of Kunark?  With all those extra sales slots available, what should go into them?
