To Buy or to Wait and Buy?

by mkjkewt7

The Neopian world has many rare items of all sorts.

The only problem is some are over priced than what the item does. In this article I will not only tell you if you should buy it or wait a few then buy it. Most of these items cost over 100k NP but the only reason is because it's overpriced. The list will be a countdown of the 10 most overpriced items in Neopia. These items were judge by my pet and I. They were judged by dropping values, benefits to Neopians and their pets, and overall usage of the item itself.

10) The Chetrix

Average Asking Price - 100k NP+

Usage - For Show and Tell

Price I would sell for - 10 NP (only because it's retired)

This item has no benefits and is way overpriced… it's just basically a picture with a name and a price tag... almost like a picture of a door with a price tag.

9) Kauvara's Potion

Average asking Price - 350k NP

Usage - Makes your pet stronger

Price I would sell for - 300k NP

I would just wait until price drops to 200k NP to pick one of these up. These potions are magnificent but the price on these are dropping... no one seems to want these anymore... no more comments.

8) Everlasting Apple

Average Asking Price - 1 million NP

Usage - Feed pets

Price I would sell for - 300k NP

These are very over priced! The cost for apples these days are so low I could buy a months worth with a game's worth of Meerca Chase The Everlasting Apple has the benefit of saving you money, but it's just not worth your hard earned NP.

7) Ubikiberry/Bombaberry Bag

Average Price - 250k NP/750k NP

Usage - Battledome healing

Price I would sell for - 150k NP/450k NP

These are great for really tough battles--it's just that the prices are dropping. When I looked at the trading post prices and auctions, I was shocked…well, not really but you could save a lot by trying to get one here.

6) Hypno Helmet

Average Price - 90k NP+

Usage - Freezing opponents

Price I would sell for - 12k

I even remember when these were under 5k! These items are great! The Hypno Helmets are way overpriced

5) Enchanted Kiko Squeeze Toy

Average Price - 550k NP

Usage - Water defence in the Battledome

Price I would sell for - 300k NP

Prices are dropping on this item. This is a great water defence item… the only thing is the price is dropping, so wait for a while before you buy.

4) Faerie Paintbrush

Average Price - 100k NP

Usage - Paints your Pet faerie

Price I would sell for - 90k NP

This item is good if you wanna dress up your pet and send him to school…but it's way overpriced. This is the only paintbrush that I think is overpriced only because not many people want these anymore.

3) Job Coupons

Average Price - 40k NP-600k NP (Green-Pink)

Price I would sell for - Don’t mention it. I don’t like these too much as they are so overpriced… it's not the worth the NP buying these…

I never found one of these on the floor before, but if I ever did I wouldn’t use it I would sell it because you would earn more that way.

2) Wands/Staffs/Rods or all Novas

Average Price - 80k NP-14mil!

Price I would sell for - Same w/ some exceptions. The Staff of Ultranova is a SUPER weapon! These items not only are way too expensive but they break before you can compensate for the NP earned at the Agency earning 200 NP a day.

They're really powerful but it's just too much for one Neopian to financially handle.

Drumroll please....

1) Fish Negg

Average Price - 600k NP

Benefits - 50 Negg points and Show and Tell

Price I would Sell - 60k NP

These items are only so much because they have the words RETIRED under there photo…this is so overpriced it's not funny…I remember when I bought 7-8 months ago for 50k NP (those were the days)…I am serious that if I ever get my hands on a Fish Negg I would sell it for 60k NP…dare me …Neomail me then.


Well, there's my Top Ten… many of you may disagree, and that's okay. I'd like to hear your feedback--Neomail me at mkjkewt7.
