Just curious as to what everyones views are on this.
ID'd items vs Un-ID'd items. Is the un-id'd items worth all that gold? For instance a gold max fellblade req8 would go for about 40k. Is it really worth 40k un-identified? Personally, I think not. I'd give 10k but thats just me. What about the Un-ID'd items that don't unlock skills such as gold shields?
What do you think?

(MERGED) ID'd vs Un-ID - is it worth it?

Unid'd weapons are generally a rip-off. The Nameless Isle makes it way too easy to "test" items before they are identified.

I did not know you could "test" unidentified items before you did ID them.
But personally, i would never buy one, nor sell one without ID'ing it.

10K for an un-id weapon? See, that's where I think we can nip ridiculous prices in the butt. It's the buyers that create the problem, not the sellers.
Only buy for it's in-game offer price ... say x2 max.
Then 40K or 10K or 1000,0000,000K for an item that has no discernible effect will soon drop out of the system.
Course, that's just fantasy. You'd never convince the buyers out there to pay what something's worth for it. No sirree. I've got a gold fellblade. Oooooooo. My life is complete. <sighs>

As has already been said, it's far to easy to determine that a gold item has crap stats and sell it for 40k. Even if this was impossible, though, I still wouldn't buy them- my luck with gold items is bad enough that I wouldn't want to risk it (it's basically buying a high-level key, except that the color, skin, and req of your drop are pre-determined).

i got a 15^50 spatha, flamberge and a wimpy sword with a +30health pommel (that i didnt get) from buying unid weapons. but i never pay more than 1 or 2k for them.
so no, its not really worth it, especially if you dont know if the person tested it beforehand.
