August is really the month of Blade and Soul, Guild Wars 2, and World of Warcraft. Their in-game currencies prices have been significantly increased because of major events and expansions. WildStar, on the other hand, has the lowest price ever even though having a single-day highest price this year. Elder Scrolls Online is better than a previous month thanks to its recent update. FFXIV and Tera RMT price have been very unstable but expected to be better soon.
Blade and Soul Gold
After staying in the range of ~$0.7 per 10 Gold for almost two months, Blade and Soul Gold had a slight rise starting from August 25. As of now, it costs ~$0.95 for the same amount. The increase was from a new endgame dungeon “Desolate Tomb” introducing with Gift of the Winds Event providing great rewards from new daily and weekly quests to all participants. However, the event will be ended on October causing Blade and Soul Gold to decrease again. It is highly possible that Blade and Soul Gold price will be staying in the range of $0.9 per 10 Gold for the first two weeks of September and return to $0.7 after that. The cheapest was on August 12, 2016, which is 10 Blade and Soul Gold for $0.67 and the most expensive was on August 26, 2016, for $0.99. The increase in price is as high as 47.76%
Elder Scrolls Online (PC)
Elder Scrolls Online Gold quickly recovered from its severe price drop last month with the new update Shadows of the Hist launched on August 2, 2016. This update alone increased the Gold price over 50% but the average cost of ESO Gold was still less than the period after Dark Brotherhood release back in June. Bethesda does not stop here. They are preparing to launch a next update 12 “One Tamriel” in October bringing change to an exploration system. Elder Scrolls Online Gold price in September should be stable before it major rise in October. The cheapest was on August 1, 2016, which is 50,000 Elder Scrolls Online Gold for $7.45 and the most expensive was on August 12, 2016, for $9.76. It was 31.01% difference.
Final Fantasy XIV Gil
As predicted by our July RMT Roundup, Final Fantasy Gil price became cheaper in August. Not only that, the price was fluctuated throughout the month. Regularly the price had a sudden 20% drop and rise again a few days after that. This month there wasn’t any interesting update much since the developer tended to focus more on external events. The 3rd FFXIV anniversary event, the Rising, should not impact RMT price at all. It is predicted that FFXIV Gil price in September should not be different than in August but more stable. The cheapest was on August 11, 2016, which is 5mn FFXIV Gil for $12.05 and the most expensive was on August 19, 2016 for $15.22. The fluctuation rate was at 25.89%
Guild Wars 2 Gold
Guild Wars 2 had been out for 4 years this month and the game was still doing okay, in terms of both number of players and RMT activities. To celebrate the 4th year anniversary, ArenaNet released several sales in an in-game gem stores as well as adding new items. In addition, Guild Wars 2 Gold price was on a rise once again after getting struck with their lowest price in history for several months. Starting from the second week, GW2 Gold price had been increasing slowly yet consistent until the end of the month. However, the average price is still lower than in July. It is predicted that next month Guild Wars 2 price should still be rising at a gradual pace. The cheapest was on August 8, 2016, which is 500 Guild Wars 2 Gold for $11.08 and the most expensive was on August 22, 2016, for $16.26. Although it was not a sudden change, Guild Wars 2 Gold price had a 46.93% increase.
SWTOR US Credits
An average SWTOR US Credits price was slightly lower than a previous month despite the release of important update “Battle of Odessen” from Knight of the Fallen Empire series. In addition, the in-game currency price even decreased during the last week of August. With the upcoming new Star Wars the Old Republic expansion, Knights of the Eternal Throne, as well as the Rogue One, SWTOR Credits price should be higher again soon. The cheapest was on August 29, 2016, which is 10mn SWTOR US Credits for $5.85 and the most expensive was on August 4, 2016, for $7.20. It was at 23.08% difference.
Similar to July, Tera Gold price in August quite fluctuated. Sometimes, the price immediately went down for more than 20% within a single day. The average price is slightly lower than the previous month. Plus, Enmass have been still using the same strategies: new costumes, double exp events, and in-game stores sales. However, we still didn’t hear any new game updates for a very long time and this might decrease the game popularity in a long run. Tera Gold price should even be lower in September but the change shouldn’t be that significant. The cheapest was on August 11, 2016, which is 20,000 Tera Gold for $20.98 and the most expensive was on August 24, 2016, for $27.96. The different rate is exact the same as last month at 33.27%
Tree of Savior Silver
Tree of Savior Silver price was very consistent in August like it had always been in the past few months. The price became much higher after the introducing of Novice Pack, a new DLC item aiming to attract new faces to the game, on August 9. In addition, several new minimal and change were added were added such as skill rebalance, new items in TP shop, and class rank. Tree of Savior Silver price should remain unchanged for a while until the release of Rank 8 update in late September bringing new level cap, areas, and even map themes. The price increase should not be major, though. The cheapest was on August 3, 2016, which is 1,000,000 gold for $3.53 and the most expensive was on August 17, 2016, for $4.90. It was a 38.81% increase.
WildStar US Gold
WildStar US Gold price had been fluctuated for the whole month of August because of several updates and changes. There was a day that the price had a sudden major increase making it became the highest ever this year at $46.25 per 5,000 Gold. Despite all of these, this month in-game currency price for WildStar Online in total was even lower than July making it be the cheapest month at the same time. There should not be any more factors causing the RMT price to rise again except a big breakthrough. WildStar Gold price in September has a possibility to be worse than this. The cheapest was on August 21, 2016, which is 5,000 gold for $22.50 and the most expensive was on August 29, 2016, for $46.29. The fluctuation rate was even higher than 200%

Only a day after the launch of the expansion, WoW Gold price had a rapid 45% increase after having been in the rate of $21 USD per 50,000 Gold throughout the month. Legion received good reviews from players all over the world which will make the RMT price to stay in this range for a while.
