I got $350 for my Ancestor, but $45 of that went towards a new Adventurer account. Andernut told me to hold off til after the 17th because it would be more valuable. I didn't want to wait, I just didn't want to have to pay. It's nice I actually made a little extra. I don't regret selling. Glad I got out of the game. I still have the low level 2nd class citizen acct to check on the game periodically and collect hats. But meh
There's no guarantee it'll become more valuable. In a single week this imagination bubble they're floating around in could pop, and reality could set in suddenly and violently.
I just wanted to make my $45 back (or close to it as possible) and get out. You did the right thing. Never know when you'd walk up to an online marketplace with a wheelbarrow full of RF keeps and hats just to trade for a $5 credit.
