lol..he's prob not trying to sell them at all, he's prob stuck them up for that silly price to use the exchange as a sort of extra bank slots..its what i did
i had too many boffs as rewards and ran out of slots on my char to hold them..think its 12 max..i didnt want to just cancel them incase i need them later so i stuck them on the exchange for a silly price so i could take the new boff reward at RA.if i need the boff i can pull it off the exchange and if someone dumb enough actually buys it for THAT price them im quids in as well.
i do it with green and blue items if me bank gets to full as well, with no timer on the exchange and no charge..why not..lol
Not to point out the obvious, but if you see it listed on the exchange, that means no one has actually bought it. Just because it is listed for seventy billion doesn't mean it has ever sold for that much.
Humans are the only ones that you can tell the gender by looking at their name. If it's Science Officer Bill, there's a good chance it's a guy. Tactical Officer Sally will probably be a female. Have you seen the names of the aliens? Take Engineering Officers Shumbigwanoogy for example. How do I know if this is a male or female? I mean, there's absolutely no way on the Exchange to sort by gender or filter out a gender, so if you're looking for a specific gender, Shumbigwanoogy ain't helpin' ya any. Know what I mean?
Of course, this is all in jest. I picked up a blue Human Sci last night for 150 credits on the Exchange. The name was "Julien". I'm thinking she'd make a wonderful medic. Then I double clicked on her from my Assignments tab. Dude looked like Sylvester Stalone, LOL. Needless to say, he trained up my other Sci boff and was sent packing.
There's a LOT to be said for a good name. Remember next time you look on the Exchange, beware of boffs named Shumbigwanoogy or Julien.
On a related note, how often do you get Officer..well..offers? I know after every level or so you get a hail from Starfleet but what about when you reach RA5? Do you still get them or are you basically left with prowling the Exchange for Rare/V.Rare BOs?
I'm pretty sure that those absurd prices primarely come from the very same accounts who farm credits for the gold sellers. They stand the most to gain by making it look like things on the auction house are expensive beyond measure.
The real secret is this: There is nothing on the auction house that you acctually need. The best items in game come from PvP and Exploration daylies, and the best BOs come from just leveling.
