I was wondering about the worth of laurels (the new daily currency) and ended up looking at all the items we can currently purchase with them.
It's interesting to see that they would provide a wide variety of 'value' from the same amount of laurels (the crafting tier bags are a perfect example. Why buy the tier 1 bag when you can buy the tier 6 bag, sell the mats for a bit of silver and buy tier 1 mats with that?).
Turns out at the moment the best return you can get for your laurels would be 40s each, by selling the uniden. dyes. Obviously if you decide to open them and get lucky, that's a shiny bit of gold, but I like to talk about guaranteed money, or safer money. This also pokes the gear boxes away, due to them being potentially awful.
Obviously at the other end you have the stuff you can't sell, and the value that has to each person (ascended gear, tonics, pets.)
I found it interesting to compare what we've been given, though I would be surprised if we didn't get any new choices sometime in the future.
Whats your thoughts on Laurels and where do you see yours being spent?
