Searching for Market

After finding out that Essence was not the best market for selling Archons, I did a quick bit of research. The first question was where all the action was for selling these beasts. I visit to Eve-Central and a simple spreadsheet soon answered that question:

As of April 26, min, max sell orders and number of sell orders per region.
The two biggest regional markets are Domain and Lonetrek unsurprisingly, followed by Derelik, Placid, Heimatar, and The Citadel. I decided to go check out Placid in more detail as I have a long time fondness for this Gallente region.

I flew over there to get a look at the market in person, especially the history. Here is the 6 month history from Essence region:

And the 6 month graph from Placid region:

As you can see, the ratio of open sell orders to history sales seems to hold up. So I think I'll give this region a try. Now to check out my old bookmarks in Pelille!

(As a side note, I kind of feel bad for the poor sod who was tricked into buying the 8 billion ISK Archon in February in Essence region.)


  1. I'm going through the same exercise right now with my trader main. I did check out that area not long ago and thought it looked promising.

    I decided against Placid for other reasons -- mostly logistical concerns having to do with where my other mains will be doing business. If those hadn't been a factor, Placid would've been pretty high on my list.

    Good luck!

  2. If you can wait the price should go up. Low sec capital manufacturing is expected to be one of the hardest hit by the manufacturing revamp. There should be a window where low sec indies aren't building caps and null sec builders haven't stocked the market yet.

    Like I said before (your previous cap building post) most capital trading goes on in the contracts, NOT the market. Contracts are global, markets region specific. Stop shooting yourself in the foot please.
