This isn't meant to be a debate thread or a "stuff is too expensive" thread, rather, I want to try to put our collective minds together to try and predict the trends for prices of store gems, materials, and the worth of gold, and how that will change early and over the first few months of the game's release.
I do expect the supply to ramp up slowly over time as people level up, but I expect the demand to be pretty high. However, and this is where I bug out, I don't really know what the supply and demand will be like comparing across things. Will there be a big supply of gems early on and that will slow down quickly, with a spike when new items are added? Will the value of gems drop faster than the value of gold?
In other words, I want to try and predict what would be best to invest in early on, and this way make a good profit.
Any data will help, especially on what tends to happen in early months in other MMORPGs.
