Silk Garter Snake

Postby Jellyman on Wed Jun 28, 2006 3:47 pm

I currently own a Silk Garter Snake. It is in my DC right now. I have never considered seling it. But what is it actually doing for me in my case right now? Yeah its great for my huge E-Penis, but what if I could get some other great stuff for it? The snake is currently around 125 mil in the mall, and the next highest is 250 mil. What do you guys think I should do? I would love a Baio or a CBS or even both. Should I keep the Snake as an investment? Or should I sell or trade it and get some cool ultra rares that I will definitely use? Your help is needed clannies!

I reckon it's probably not going to go much higher. Trade it for something nice - or even just plain meat. With all this meat going out of the kingdom (*cough* raffles *cough*) raw meat is one of the better investments you can make.

I noticed the huge price difference a while ago. I used the one that I bought when they were only 20 mil, but had I kept it in my DC like yourself, I would put it up in the mall somewhere below the 250 one. Then again, I'm a collector of familiars... so I might just as soon keep it.

I'd say sell it. But I dual weild CBSs and have virtually no good familiars.. so go figure about where my interests lie.

There is very little chance you will be able to sell it for straight meat but I do reckon you could trade for other rares. I would say that you would be lucky for 100mil.

Sell it! 100m would be a good price, but you could go 90 as well.

I would sell it, I think. Meat is always good to have, and there isn't really anything you are going to need it for. I don't see the price going up on it, either.

If the 125 mil one sells, you could potentially get more out of it, though. All depends on if you want to gamble with the price now or wait.

The mall price is not the price that people will pay in the rares market. If something is at 100mil it is generally because nobody will pay 100mil.

I say sell it if you can, but dont sell it for too low. If you are getting crap offers, just hold on to it.

Another idea would be to just undercut the person in the mall by say 1mil meat and see what happens. If they aggresively beat you then they want to sell and if they don't see their's at a lower price then there aren't many people out there who want one.

Jelly, if you're bound and determined to sell it, let me know, okay? I am highly interested, although I must confess I'm a little broke at the moment.

I bought 3 badgers at 5mil. I went in to ronin at the wrong time and Jick was on time with the Mr. Item of the month so I lost a bit of meat but if I sold now I would still make a decent profit.

I've often regretted not buying a Silk Garter Snake when it came out. I did buy a Jill, but the Snake beats it for sheer Coolness.

The problem is that the price has gone up and up faster than my ability to acquire funds by farming - and I have no time to, say, play the mall to get funds faster. I can scrape up, oh, 35 million or so (once I'm out of hardcore), but that's it...

So, I'll just sit here and glare at you with intense envy. :)

I just got a silk garter snake for app. 85m in items earlier today. Not a terrible price, I don't think. I suppose I'll watch how yours does Jelly, before I decide whether I want to try to sell mine anytime soon or not. Good luck!

By now, the 125mil one is gone, and I notice yours is up for 100 mil. Good luck.

I ended up getting mine off as part of a trade for a grimacite item a bit ago. Horray for inflated familiar prices!
