My Gold Foil Legendary Addiction

gfl.png

I admit...

I have an addiction!

I love Gold Foil Legendary cards on Splinterlands. And you might be saying:

"No sh^t Captain Obvious! We all do!"

Yes yes!

They are super rare! They have extra benefits when you play with them. Huge DEC burn rates. Special abilities...

However for me, I got hooked way before SPS because of well...How I got addicted to Splinterlands in the first place.

The collectibility of them!

When I was a kid, I loved opening packs of baseball cards and hoping I would find that all star rookie card. What a rush that was!!!

Fast forward and we've got a new way to collect these cards and it's all digital. It's on the blockchain and YUP...They are even NFT's!

So here's my dilemma....

Over the past few months, the prices of these things have sky rocketed!

Right now, the cheapest Gold Foil Legendary that isn't from the new rewards cards is like 700-800 bucks.

I was buying my Gold Foils for like 70 bucks each a few months ago lol

But now we see these....

I know, I know...There are a BOAT load of these yet to be minted and much more in circulation as time goes on...

But still!

It's so tempting lol

Here's my thoughts on it...

I do think the price of these will go down, but not by a lot. Because as more and more people join Splinterlands (especially when Chaos Legion releases) these will be minted, burned, combined...And supply will go down.

They are limited, even though there will be more of these than say...Almo Cambio.

So what do you think Splintertalk???

Should I pull the trigger and spend some of this juicy DEC I have on these new Gold Foil Legendaries?

Or wait it out, have some patience and see where it goes?

Help me out LOL

I've been tempted to snatch these cheap GF Legendary Monsters up, too! My reasoning is that they're sure to increase in value over time, even if they dip temporarily as more cards get minted and Chaos gets released, but also I could use a boost to my collection power being one of the newer players that washed up onto Splinterlands with the early July wave. I think I'd get more bang for my buck waiting for Chaos Legion so I'm sitting tight for now, but really there's no wrong answer. These cards will definitely be worth much more in the not too distant future.

That's my thinking too...They may take a dip short term, and I even expect it...But long haul, they are gems. GFLs are so awesome on so many fronts.

Thanks so much for the feedback!

The question is: Do you go for Harklaw or Oshannus? They're both badass. I'm leaning Harklaw.

LOLOL Oh wow. The next problem I'll have...Deciding which one lol

Yeah Oshannus I think has a little bit of clout because he was revealed along with Lava Launcher first...But Harklaw is a baddddd ass!!

I think because Oshannus looks like Kron's sea-cousin, people subconsciously favor him lol I know I do. But yeah, Harklaw is a bad mutha

I'd wait till the price dips when the packs come out but who knows, prices may go up from here. Hope i get to score one someday.

That's another good point too...Just playing the game, I could always win one. Patience might be a good strategy!

OR, you can look at the price on splintercards, find a low priced card, then flip it when the market goes up. :D

What is important to realize is that these reward cards GFL have about a 4 times lower point/DEC burn level than previous legendary cards. Therefore they are about 4 times less worth in value as well. Considering this, I think that present prices are slightly too high. A good idea in such cases is to go to peakmonsters and enter a bid price at let's say 200$. If somebody is willing to sell at this price then you make a good deal.

I think this is the winning comment! Completely agree.

Great idea man. I still have never used Peakmonsters or MonsterMarket for any buys or sells...A lot going on, I do appreciate the simplicity of Splinterlands itself.

Yeah I'm not always worried about the gaming side of buying these cards. It's a lot to do with the collecting of them.

You like to collect cards, me too but I did not buy the summoners when the price was low for laziness, now I regret and miss my Krakken that I sold it to buy more packages for 2 dollars
