What is up guys, it’s Kira here back with another one. Today I’m going to be doing a clickbaity and yet super relevant video that should help most of you to essentially make ridiculous amounts of silver with absolutely zero effort and very minimal risk. Playing the market for profit! As you may or may not be aware, with the introduction of the Central marketplace it has made being an auction house trader actually a valid way of making money which has never before been possible in the game. So what do I mean by auction house trader? This is the simplest and most basic rule of money management and supply vs demand ever, the basic principle of buy low and sell high. Of course for a lot of people in the know, they will already be doing this to at least some degree, albeit maybe not for profit but for their own account progression in the form of stocking up on certain things to use later.
For those of you who are not aware of this, it’s essentially a way to double your silver with almost zero risk if you’re patient and can spot the worthwhile investments. As you can see the event based economy of black desert that used to be a crippling factor towards progression, having to wait for weeks or months to be able to enhance certain items due to their artificial scarcity still exists in a limited form. With the new marketplace changes the crippling wait for these events to give everyone certain items such as memory fragments, blackstones, hards, sharps and yellow accessories is now just a case of getting things cheaper for a limited time.
Of course that’s where being a trader comes in. Let’s look at a recent event, the blooming blossom event. During this event you were given 5 cherry blossoms per day every day for three weeks. During this time a lot of people were opening the box for 25 blossoms which gave out a random black magic crystal. Before this event, every single black magic crystal that was available in the box was selling for 25-33 million silver each. As you can imagine as soon as the rewards for the event started rolling in, they dropped to around 8-12 million each. Now of course once the prices hit rock bottom I purchased as much as I could, which was 109 crystals, for roughly 1 billion silver. The event ended almost two weeks ago as I’m recording this video and the prices haven’t fully recovered yet but as you can see they’re on the way.
If I were to sell everything today I would have made a profit of 420 million silver with 2 weeks of investment and this is not even close to what I will actually make. This is based on selling two of the sets of crystals basically at a loss, which of course I’m not going to be doing because I know it will be going up very soon due to the supply available now. If you look at the graphs here of the price and the listed amount of items, you can see that the event supply has basically run dry now and the only crystals about to be entering the market are from people like me who hoarded them and new ones being made. The reason I bought quite a few of each different crystal despite some being more of a risk than others is that spreading your money equally over different items is the smartest way to invest.
It means that even if you’re forced to sell one or two of the items at a loss, the profiting items should cover this and result in at worst breaking even. In this spreadsheet you’ll see that currently even with two of 5 crystals making a loss, I’ll make a 40% profit after taxes and I don’t intend to sell yet. I’ll be selling once I hit 100% profit and turn my 1 billion investment into 2 billion. So how did I know that the prices for these items would recover and net me a profit? That’s purely just common sense and knowledge about the game. The market has been out long enough now that most items have settled at their actual silver value and if you know what the crystals are used for and how they’re gained you know that eventually they will dry back up on stock unless some major change to the game happens, which in the case of this method is the only way to actually lose money doing this if you’re smart about it.
What are the crystals used for? They are socketed into gear for stats, they break sometimes when you die, they are used to atttempt upgrades to BON-WON-JIN crystals which consume the crystal in the process and often times don’t give you the crystal you want. How do you get them? Realistically they’re gated behind imperial content which admittedly not a lot of people seem to participate in and you can only earn a certain amount per person per day.
So the one I produce myself and I’m most familiar with is the Cobelinus crystals, which are a result of turning in 400 imperial cooking boxes which at 151 boxes a day for me takes me 3 days to produce a single crystal. Using this knowledge I am able to say with some level of certaintity that the crystals will eventually go up to previous values. Let’s talk risk v reward, the only risks to this is you didn’t understand the market, purchased in at a bad time, sold too early or some freak patch arrives and makes whatever you invested in way easier to get which floods the market. They’re the risks and the reward is that you should be able to roughly double your money every single investment if you’re patient enough. From this single event , I estimate including taxes to earn roughly double my money, turning 1 billion silver into 2 billion after taxes within 4 weeks.
This being quite a slow turn around considering I have been able to make much more silver much faster. This method is not limited to events either and you can use it to make money from predicting the market based on patch notes. A good example of this would be a few weeks ago when they announced the shadow arena closing, a lot of people bought out the market of enhancing materials as they knew the prices would go up when it closed. Reason being that a large portion of the enhancement materials were in the market due to them being rewards from shadow arena. Though this had less of an impact so far on the pricing than people initially assumed and this is the reason I didn’t get involved in this particular flip.
The logic I used to decide on whether or not to get involved here was that the shadow arena existed during the central market being implemeneted and therefor we had no way to know if the shadow arena affected prices much compared to normal everyday gameplay. This isn’t rocket science and maybe you’ll think it’s super obvious on the surface but I know not everyone is doing this method because if they were, I wouldn’t be able to make as much money as I am. All I’d suggest is to make a basic spreadsheet like the one here, showing the items you purchased, the amount, the price and what you sold at, then calculate the investment and the profit including the marketplace tax. Just so you can keep track of your investments. The best thing about this method is easily the fact that the more capital you have to invest the more money you can make each time. I invest 1 billion here and return 2 billion, next investment I invest 2 billion and return 4 billion. You see where I’m going with this.
This guide should work for xbox as well as PC and combined with my cooking guide, plus farming…I’m making billions of silver per month without ever killing a creature, now imagine if I grinded for a few hours each day also?
