Hello, I made an account back in 2020 and I can't remember how to do much.
A) I don't see a "Cancel Bid" Option anywhere, if I could get help with that it would be appreciated.

B) Could I get a translation for PC in cents or dollars and maybe rarity worth(s)? I'm not sure how much these are worth as I saw a 35PC bid on a Rare Egg and bid 50PC over it.

Thank you to anyone who could help me out. ^^

Hey there @SageSama, welcome back to the site!

Unfortunately there's no way to cancel your bid once it's placed. I imagine that might make auctions confusing if players could do that, but I'm willing to hear your thoughts on it.

As for the value of PC, since our active playerbase is so small, it's difficult to pinpoint PC's value. Personally, I base the value of PC on the price of houses, since those are the only items in the game which truly have a set price (not counting sellback prices, as items aren't meant to be sold at those prices on the player market imo). When you look at the house prices, you can get an idea of what's considered a large amount of PC.

What I can tell you about the auctions here is that 1000 PC is a lot of money. Anyone who spends more than that is very determined to win an auction.

For now that's all I can think of, and while I don't have a precise answer about the value of PC, I can provide price ranges for specific items and eggs if you like. For example the egg that you bid on, I would say 50 PC is actually a good price for a Rare egg. I believe Rare eggs are the third most common type of egg, after Common and Normal eggs, so you probably wouldn't want to spend more than 100 PC on it unless it's a newly released pet.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Oh, thanks a lot! I had seen a lot of low bids on eggs and was worried I had gone over. ^^"
I do think a "cancel bid" option would be nice but with a removal feature for bid creators. Alternatively, maybe a warning saying something like, "Are you sure you want to place this bid? You cannot cancel it later."
Ah, yeah. Sorry to bother you again but would would be the price range for a legendary egg?

We do tend to see a lot of low starting bids on both the egg and item markets, and ironically these are often at the sellback price or lower, which is dirt cheap. I'm not sure if this is due to price confusion or just an attempt to entice more bidders, or even a combination of both. It's definitely possible to nab an egg at those prices, but yeah, 50 PC is still fairly cheap.

I like your idea for a confirmation message before bidding; I think that would be fair. ^^

As for legendary prices, it depends on the legendary. I've made a list below of how I personally price each legendary, though not everyone may agree with me.

(Spoiler applied in case you haven't encountered all the legendaries yet)



And you're not bothering me! I'm here to help, so ask as many questions as you like
