ESO Xbox Sales History is a sale history database not a price guide. It is imperative that users of this tool recognize the difference. This website is not a rule-book for pricing; it is a collection of data points harvested from sales histories of trading guilds. All figures present in this sheet are formula-generated from the connected database and not the input of personal recommendation.
While we strive to provide a tool that gives a relevant snapshot of the community’s current market, it is important to acknowledge that this may not be your most useful asset when finding accurate pricing. First and foremost, manually searching through a major trade city (Mournhold, Wayrest, Alinor, etc) will give you the absolute best idea of value. Second is knowledgeable traders willing to lend their expertise. Somewhere far down on that list is websites/apps like ours. ESO Xbox Sales History is fantastic for ballpark values, especially on high-volume sales items. It becomes less useful in categories with lower per item sales volume (such as sets and furniture plans).
In this database, pricing for each item will is listed in 6 tiers: minimum, lower range, median, maximum, average, and common. The minimum and maximum reflect the lowest and highest single record of sale. The lower range discards the bottom 10% of all sales, which means 90% of all recorded sales are at or above this amount. The average price is just that, the average of all sales recorded. The common price tells you what price appears the most amongst all sales recorded.
At the end of every month, the database goes through a purge we like to call the “Data Dump.” You can read more about the data dump in this blog post. This reset drops old data to prevent it from skewing new data, making the list more flexible and responsive to market change. The downside is that it also keeps recorded sales numbers low. But it’s important for database users to recognize that those limited data points often represent a larger picture of previous month’s data. All purged data can be found in the Archive section of the this website.
ESO Xbox Sales History is a cooperative pricing database and we do our best to update values daily to keep in tune with the Xbox economy, but it’s important to acknowledge the major pitfalls of this database: The data presented in this list is inherently biased towards trading guilds. Therefore price ranges may be slightly inflated compared to the overall market range, which would include lower pricing from other sales avenues such as text chat, band, etc. Some categories (specifically furnishings, furniture plans, and sets pieces) may have too few tracked sales to accurately portray their market. Conversely, other categories may have too much data tracked, making them inflexible to market shifts if they occur too swiftly (before monthly purge). The data presented only provides a small snapshot of sales at a specific window in time and should be interpreted as such.
