This is a very interesting strategy. Admittedly Critical never used it but one of my last competitors did and I admire Shamanta for his thinking. Basically you create a single 1-glyph wall of all glyphs at a high fallback price maybe 250g, something like this:
This strategy "works" because you only need to sell 4 glyphs to earn an easy 1k. And out of 344 total glyphs its quite easy for popular glyphs to sell out of stock including a few of your ones for 250g.
It is also effective because it is quite hard to counter. To counter someone else who is using this strategy you need to load up multiple walls and completely make sure that they dont get a single sale. Even just 2 sales for 500g is fantastic profit margin if the glyphs cost 15g to make.
It took Critical 2 weeks of blocking and completely denying him any sales, to convince my Fallback Glypher to "take a break" from glyphs. If glyph competition is hot on your server, give this strat a try:
- single 1-glyph wall
- all glyphs
- at maybe 300g or 250g
The great thing is you dont benefit from posting more often that once in 48hrs (because the sales will be super slow). I mean really, you gotta be a sadist to enjoy cancelling and reposting every few minutes.
Obviously the drawback is you're not gonna be making 10k daily sales but its a smart strategy if a serious goblin starts walling at low prices. It would be excellent for Faid at Stage 4 of said exit strategy. Stage 4 being when glyph stocks have reduced to 2.
