I've compared the Historical Market (60 Day Avg) to the Region Market (14 day avg weighted to more recent data), along with some data that I pulled in November 2014. Now I cannot tell exactly when the data was downloaded, but I last edited the original file (was pulling data for another project that never got finished) on November 12th, 2014. Anyway, I've posted the spreadsheet for download and discussion over at The Consortium Forums. The TL;DR is that on average, the percent change in price of Xmog was +3.5%, the overall percent change in respect to every item summed was -6.5%. If you're wondering how these can be different, consider the following:
|Item||Old Price||New Price||% Change|
The average % change is (100% + 0% + -40%)/3 = +20% while the overall % change is zero, because both the new and old prices sum to 10. Both have their flaws when evaluating this market, because no one has an evenly distributed stock, but it's an easy way to look at and analyze it.
The New List
Having said that I don't think the xmog market as a whole is doomed, there are some items that likely due to the salvage yard have fallen off my bottom threshold and must be purged. I created a new list, and I've added a subgroup called Defunct Xmog, which is the group of sub 150g items, just in case you want to try and sell off your stock of them or see what's changed. In all it was 216 items, so pretty substantial. Do not search for/buy these items!!! I guarantee someone will mess that up, but hey reading's for chumps right?
Anyway my new list can be found at this link (as always), and I've created a method of reevaluating this in Microsoft Access and creating a new list, so in the future, I should be able to update this list more easily/frequently. If I don't, get on me!
To import the list if you've already got a previous version, go to your BASE transmog group, and paste the string as normal, MAKING SURE THE Move Already Grouped Items BOX IS CHECKED! Easy peasy.
