"G1 Pricing" wrote:
First, my apologies for the inaccurate, then misleading, wording of my messages! I will be tweaking it going forward, and hopefully I can point you to a better and more comprehensive resource soon. Second, I cannot help individually price G1's -- but I can offer several general truths about the G1 market at this time of year:

- During NotN, G1 prices will be very low because everyone is hatching so many! You could make a much bigger profit by waiting to resell them next year.

- The price range of 10kg to 50kg represents not just doubles but also triples, which are much more rare. (Since triples are so rare, I will be splitting my messages into two instead: one for doubles and another for triples.)

- 10kg is not a hard minimum. It depends a lot on luck and salesmanship (e.g., showing off possible scries). I don't want anyone to dismiss an unusual or "ugly" color combo, because many colors have surprising accents in two-toned genes, like Poison or Skink.

- That said, sometimes an unlucky double simply will not sell. 1kg may be the highest you can hope for, but it is almost always a better idea to check interest and hold an auction on the forum instead of listing your double on the Auction House.

- Read previous XXY/XYX/XYY(/XXX) threads in the auction forum to see what colors are popular and how to advertise your double(/triple).

- Dom leaders and the G1 Hoarders Association are also good resources for tips! I recommend asking as many people as possible. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but there are beauty trends to follow in order to make a profit.

Good luck and, again, I am really sorry for the confusion!

I very much appreciate your advice, and while I'm pretty aware of Gen1 dragons' absurd price potential, I see from your other comments that you're warning a lot of people against getting ripped off. Good on you!

with respect, i disagree. im fairly familiar with gen1 pricing, and besides if you look on the AH the cheapest XYX is 225g. i doubt any double would be worth 50kg unless it was an extremely popular color, which mine isn't. thank you for comment, though.

Thank you, but she won't be for sale. I planned to keep my first hatch of every double combo and she's my first xxy.
