TOPIC | Should I sell or use my Phantom scroll?
I found a Gaoler phantom scroll in the coli a few weeks ago and I’ve just been sitting on it, paralyzed by indecision. See, I had this scry for my boy that looks awesome and is one phantom scroll away from completion (see below.) But said scroll could fetch me enough coin(about one million treasure) to buy just about any other gene and then some, even though phantom is still by far my favorite look on him. Phantom babies are going for about 50-75kt at the moment but obviously demand will wane with time, so I don’t think I can bank on breeding raking in an equivalent return. Do I make a pretty dragon or make money?

Here's how I see it: if, months from now, you would still want this derg to have Phantom enough that's you'd save up the money to get one, you'd be losing money to not just use it on them now. Because then you'd be down the money you spent on a gene you were "meh" on, and you'd have to pay for a new Phantom. A huge loss for a dragon to be sitting there not being pretty!

(Also he's gorgeous, hecc)

Un-hiatusing because Ancients :D
@FoxyMcloxy to counter the above, prices are higher now than they will be later; i'd recommend selling to take advantage of that. there'll always be more Phantom drops, and even if you don't happen to get another to drop yourself, they'll be cheaper to buy later on since more will have been found since then by others and more projects will have been completed, leaving more supply.

if you really wanted, you could also try selling the scroll and then keeping an eye on AH listings to see if you can pick one up for cheaper, so you get both the scroll AND some profits.

python was once at the price phantom is at now. now, python is generally around 100g while phantom is still at over 1kg. think of it as either spending 1kg now or 100g later.

What I did was, sell when price is good. You already sit on it for a few weeks and price already dropped, but it's still high enough to sell for a hefty profit. Do you have plans for the dragon once gened? Like wanting to breed for a dream dragon, otherwise if he doesn't NEED the gene NOW, you'd better sell the scroll now.

@Tserin
That’s a heck of a comparison.. and now I almost feel a little silly for not initially drawing the connection- I found a morph scroll early on and immediately sold it for a tidy profit. I found a second one later on and used it because of the price drop.
Thanks for your input! It’s on ah now and I think I’ve only lost a couple hundred K for my indecision ^^;;
