Cipher Trading/Selling Thread


Recommended Posts

It looks like everyone is giving you most of the answer, but not the full thing, lol. Here's a lowdown of the full rarity spectrum. This should give you everything you need to know about the rarities, whether you need to know it or not, lol:

N = Normal - A Booster Box-only suffix. Non holo. The most common card available. A total of 48 different N cards per Series.

ST = Starter Deck - A Starter Deck-only suffix. Non holo. Like all Starter Deck cards you will always get the same amount of the cards in accordance to the fixed Deck list.

ST+ = Starter Deck Holo - A Starter Deck-only suffix. Holo. Like all Starter Deck cards you will always get the same amount of the cards in accordance to the fixed Deck list. Cards ending in -001ST+ have the foil of a R+ while all other ST+ cards have the foil pattern of a R.

HN = High Normal - A Booster Box-only suffix. Non holo. A very uncommon card. You usually get between 1 - 4 of a specific HN card per Booster Box. A total of 24 different HN cards per Series.

R = Rare - A Booster Box-only suffix. Holo. You only get 12 different R cards per Booster Box (11 if there is a R+ in the Booster Box). A total of 16 different R cards per Series.

R+ = Rare+ - A Booster Box-only suffix. Holo. A Rare card with gold lettering for all text except for the Skills. It also has a thin gold 'frame' on the card. Certain cards have wildly different flavor text structures i.e. B03-069R+ Mitama. Also, B01-057R+ Robin (♀) and B01-059R+ are the only Signed Rare+ cards (right now). You get 1 R+ card in every Booster Box where you don't pull a SR+. A total of 8 different R+ cards per Series.

SR = Super Rare - A Booster Box-only suffix. Holo. You only get 4 different SR cards per Booster Box (3 if there is a SR+ in the Booster Box). The foil pattern on a SR card has a certain 'texture' on it different from R cards. A total of 12 different SR cards per Series.

SR+ = Super Rare+ - A Booster Box-only suffix. Holo. Pretty much the same as a R+ except with the SR foil pattern. Most SR+ cards are Signed cards. The only exceptions are B01-051SR+ Chrom and B01-080SR+ Tharja. You usually get 1 SR+ in every 4 boxes. Sometimes it's 1 in every 5 (if you have luck like me). A total of 6 different SR+ cards per Series.

PR = Promo - A Promo-only suffix. Unlike the other rarities, there are no distinctions between holo and non holo promos. It all depends on the card.

Another type of card is the Marker Card. These can vary between the Starter Deck-only 'Insignia' cards and the 'full artwork' Marker Cards. The koryukai Marker Cards are both the rarest cards and the only cards with a 'brownish' back. Also, there are a total of 6 Signed cards per Series. These cards are signed by that chara's Voice Actor/Actress. Unpromoted/Special Class cards have a Silver border pattern while Promoted cards have a Gold border pattern.

Hopefully this answers your rarity-related question ^_^;.

Thank you very much for this fast and detailed answer!

Alright, I understand now. So, if I'm given the choice between a Rare and a ST for the same price, it's better to go for the rare, then? Is there any visual difference at all?

(I'm really sorry about all those questions that might sound stupid... Please tell me if I should ask elsewhere.)

Also, I'm looking for both Flannel cards, Cordelia's Promo Card and this Sorcerer Odin. Is TCG Republic a good site for standalone cards? The prices are far better than on eBay, so I assumed it was... What would the average price for a whole booster be?

Just go for the R versions. Holo versions (almost) always look better :3.

I'm a far better source than either of them ^_~. Here's my List: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1S6BURGo0COFBjVLlBYDLywdhV1SUiU-D6OAthXuO1rk/edit?usp=sharing

I also do monthly Sales where (almost) everything is much, much cheaper than what is listed. I have a Sale later on this month. The only problem is that you'll have to figure out what day it is and when I'll hold the Sale :P.

The average price of a booster pack is around $3.20. If you factor in S&H and potential foreign transaction fees then that amount is absurdly highly. It's much more cost efficient to get a Booster Box. Try amiami.com since they have the best internationally-friendly prices.

Sorry about the long-winded post ^_^;.

UPDATE: This post will be a little different until I get more cards once Series 4 releases. I've tried to trade these cards numerous times in the past with no avail, so now I'm open to paypal offers and paypal+card offers as well. Main thing here is getting rid of these cards, but if you want to trade for one or more of my cards feel free to refer to my old post here: http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=55020&page=30#entry4245568

Another thing I want to mention is that I'll also be getting a couple of extra Series 4 cipher sleeve packs, specifically Tsubasa (FE-25), Severa (FE-27), and Lucina (FE-28) a little after they release as well, and I'm looking to trade any one of those for either a Kamui F (FE-10), Ike (FE-17), Chrom (FE-02), and/or Marth (FE-01) sleeve packs. If you're interested, let me know and I don't mind reserving whichever sleeve you're interested in (assuming you have said sleeve on-hand).

What I Have

  • B03-032R - Nephenee
  • B03-036R - Jill
  • B03-040R - Ranulf
  • B03-045R - Reyson
  • B03-072R - Selkie
  • B03-091R - Nina x2
  • P03-014 - Soren
  • P02-011 - Hinoka
  • P03-013 - Elincia

Since it seems we have our first -1 rating, I thought I'd make a quick remark.

If you have a single -1, you've got a bolded "warning" sign next to your name, meaning anybody that trades with you should be careful.

If you get down to -2, I'll bump the warning up another level and point out that trading with said person is a risk.

Get -3, I'll bump it up even more basically telling the community not to trade with said person.

Hope it never goes below -1, but there's all kinds of people around so you can never know.

Also, rankings updated once again.

Happy trading!

Hi everybody! I'm new member to this website, but I've been a lurker from time to time. I have some excess FE0 cards to trade, as well as cards that I'm searching for. I was hoping someone would be kind enough to give me the rules of this board, that way I know how the procedures work and avoid any mishaps. Thanks!

So far, it's pretty straight forward.

Post with respect (no flaming, harassing ect).

For the cards; make a post on what you're looking for and what you want.

What I do as far as trading/selling:

give a +1 when some one pays/ you received an item. They return the +1 when they get the goods. Since you're a new user, you'll probably have to send 1st with some one else with more points. If you send to equal points you can come to an agreement with that person (who sends 1st or send st the same time). At the end of the day you guys have to come to a safe and reasonable agreement (holding your ends of the bargain).

If some one is playing games/giving you a hard time with a trade, just kindly decline and take your buisness else where (trades are done in a Private message, just post "haves/wants" and points here).

Um I think that covers the basics. I guess for card values:

you have varying sites in the USA market and japan market. People value things differently, due to importing, that makes the USA market alittle more expensive. But overall try to do research on cards to get the most fair possible trade.

Hope this helped, and welcome!

Since my brother and I got copies of the Fates Special edition and we don't see the point of having two art books so one of the art books is up for trade.

Got one extra copy of the magazine the Soren promo came in. You'll get the magazine and two promos if you are want to trade/buy it. Or you can just trade for the promos.

Thanks for looking!
