Question about stolen treasure/laundering

bruceleroy98
So if you launder a stolen treasure item, does it sell more to merchants or does it make any difference whether or not you sell it directly to the fence after a blue treasure item is stolen?

    you can launder things but it will not change the value at all and net you zero profit, both pay the same amount for treasures just sell them directly to a fence, for anything useful use immediately or launder it.

    Laundering a 250 gold item and then selling it to a merchant will be a net profit of zero. It holds its value whether it's stolen or not.
    Laundering non-consumable, non-wearable items is more for roleplaying or novelty. Like my Ancient Map of Unknown Land, or as I like to call it, Game Pack Scrapped In Early Development.

    It sells for the same price as you Launder it for.

    I only launder items like Ingredients, Recipes, Motifs etc. I might launder some items I would normally sell if I used up my Sell limit and had some room left in the Launder limit. That way I can break even by selling the laundered item to the Merchant down there.

    I heard, but have not tested, that if you launder a stolen piece of gear you get better inspiration on decon (the same as if it was a mob looted item). However normal stolen items give such low Inspiration it is not worth taking them to the crafting station, probably why I never tested this.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    OK, I tested Stolen vs Laundered on Decon


    Laundered Metal 9588
    Stolen Metal 958

    Laundered Cloth 10306
    Stolen Cloth 1029

    Same exact items, same level, only one was Laundered and one was still marked stolen.

    Laundering is only useful if you plan to use the item and not sell. Like as mentioned consumables or for decon (or for fun). The only other consideration is getting the related achievement. Also good for levelling Legerdemann when you used up your daily selling limit.

    Laundering is also useful for items (like motifs and recipes) that you can sell in a guild store for much more than you can vendor it.

    Also for stuff that you want to give to another of your characters since you can't bank stolen items
