So looking through the BCNMs and KSNMs to make money for my new gobbie bag quest, I was looking hard at ODS. Then, I found royal ramble. The first drop mentioned on royal ramble, is 100% Orichalcum ingot. That got me to thinking, 1/3 to 1/4 chance of making money on ODS, or 100% chance of making money on royal ramble. (if I sold the ingot)
I see an ls mate of my shouting for ODS at 4, I send him a tell telling him about royal ramble. He invites me, and we easily beat royal ramble. 6 Orichalcum ingots later, only 2 of which went on AH, the party was wondering why everyone is all ODS ONRY instead of doing this to make some money.
That is my question. If this has a guaranteed 250-300k attached to it, why would you even think about a possible 500k vs a guaranteed 250-300k. Sure the reward is smaller, but its guaranteed. Meaning no more seeing the person right before you get a serket ring, and you get a philosopher stone. Everyone gets good stuff.
