Unbreakable Tools Sale question

It just showed up today as ending soon and I'm wondering when soon would be?
I'm hoping to buy this but out of funds right now.

  • It should end promptly at 9AM Pacific Time.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    If you have a good friend, you might see if they can gift it to you... and then when you do have funds, you can gift them something worth the same (or slightly more) gems.


    FYI it's a good practice to build up a stash of gems by converting gold on a semi-regular basis. Three methods:

    • Fixed-amount investment: convert the same amount of gold to gems, using a calendar schedule. Perhaps 100g/week (if you farm enough) or 30g/month (half your daily reward).
    • Fixed-income investment: similar to above, using a fixed fraction of your wallet. For example, 5% every Friday or 20% the first of every month. If your wallet has 100g, that's just 5g converted. If it has 1000g, then convert 50.
    • Threshold investment: buy a fixed amount of gems any time the conversion rate drops below a certain number. For example, any time the rate is below 125g per 400 gems, buy 1000.

    This way, you're likely to have plenty of gems for any important purchase, without having to worry about scrounging the funds on short notice.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    Also to keep an eye on gem prices and buy when it's at it's lowest for the past 1-2 months.

  • Don't have any friends on since I returned back a few weeks ago. But yeah thanks for the info I'll just start farming for more gold when possible and go after it the next time around.
