Does anyone have suggestions as to why the price of raw swordfish has crashed so dramatically recently? It’s like 50-60% of its value in the past 4 or so months seemingly out of nowhere. Initially I thought divine locations may be the culprit but other divine location items have not experienced such a dramatic crash and I feel like it would be irresponsible on Jagexs part to allow that to happen.

We’re the overvalued at 400 gp+ ea?

I fail to see how Jagex has any responsibility regarding prices of such items, as it is an open trade market and players, as well as supply and demand, control the prices. Most likely it is due to full mobile release and people realising items such as these, as fishing is such an afk activity, will flood the market, so they are selling.

I wonder if you would have posted if the items had risen dramatically, and be calling out Jagex as irresponsible if they were flooding your pockets with gp...

Wowzers I didn't expect outright hostility when I made this post.... First of all I never accused Jagex of anything. Maybe I wasn't clear when I said it initially but what I meant was in THEORY it would be irresponsible of Jagex to allow such a large volume of swordfish (or any item) to enter the game from divine locations because of the negative impact it would have. This was only a theory though and most likely isn't even the explanation for the dramatic crash.

This post was just meant to spark discussion about a change in price I found to be extreme and out of the ordinary. I think your other point about the release of the mobile version is valid though because I just checked the price of raw lobsters and there was a similar crash in price that occured.

it's a very common drop from the new elite dungeons and there has been a nice flowin from raw sworfishes from that resulting in the price drop.

player owned farms is a nice use for them making them somewhat stable i guess soon
