    Exactly. Some items are hard to sell, but rare enough to be worth something! ;)

    Tyraels might is a very weird armor, rarely used in builds. Its worth comes solely from being so extremely rare! :nod:

    I sold one on east ladder a few years ago for 18+ hrs, but it MUST have chilling armor on it in addition to 3ES. With just 3ES, its not worth nearly as much. Obviously, HRs on east are 3/4 ist on europe.

    You cant compare the prices from years ago and today. Neither runes vs items, on different realms.

    This game lacks a true currency..

    Yep. Years ago there was less bots and more legit players. Now, when you login to hell games list, most of them are botters. Which lowers prices down. I sometimes despise Blizzard for abandoning this game. But they are business and must do anything to make profit eh..

    Its a bit more complicated than that Im afraid.

    If there were no botters, not so many items would be worth 5hrs+. Because there wouldnt be many hrs.
    (fyi, Ive selffound 5xBer/Jah this ladder. And I consider myself lucky.)

    18 hrs is a fantastic amount of runes in a non botting ladder. Yeah, the ladders were longer back then. But even with a 2year ladder. Thats alot of runes for a prebuff item.

    In a legit D2 world, prices would be more of what they were ladder 9. A hr being worth 16-22 ists, and the best items were worth 5-10hrs.

    Yes, east was riddled with duped runes. But, the point remains, without at least +1 chilling armor, a +3 ES staff isn't nearly as valuable if you can sell it at all.
