“I looked at the last time you listed it, and again now, and I saw the same issue both times. That issue is that the “Sell Price” is whatever someone is offering to sell the item for. For example, the “Vital Green Wood Harpoon Gun” says I can craft it for 7 silver and sell it for 11 Gold. Just because someone is offering to sell it for 11 Gold doesn’t mean anyway will actually pay that, however. The highest buy offer is for 6 silver. This same pattern applied to everything I looked at (and I skip the obvious crazy ones like this). Sellers were offering to sell at the listed profit, but the highest buy offer was below the crafting cost.

How are you actually making money with this?”

    Good show. But between the Lisp and the low talking whisper guy it can be hard to follow
