Trying to figure out why this particular Hami-O is 30+million. 

 

I see no instance when I would slot this in a travel power.  The flight bonus is less than a lvl 50 IO and End usage on travel powers seems minimal to me.  If Teleport was an option then sure.  

 

To the best of my knowledge  Hamis are rewarded  randomly so it can't be a scarcity thing.

 

I do have a vague recollection of buying one on Live but I have no idea why.

 

What am I missing?

Pretty much the only place I see these is in PvP builds where every little bit of performance matters and you're okay with spending 30+ million for 33.3% enhancement value instead of ~10 million (IO + boosters) for a 50+5 IO that gives 33.1% enhancement. Last spring/summer these could easily clear 100 million and were sitting at 130-150 million for a little while after the zone cap was put back on the Hive.

I think the quicksilver end/run speed +5 is a better bargain, lol. Always take the merits at hami! There are some useful ones, but there are some real turds that make the risk too high for me.

I've never slotted one, but I have come close, in the following circumstances:

  1. On a Kinetics build, because I had slotted all the alternatives in assorted Kin-powers.
  2. On a character with a "combined" travel power (e.g. Sorcery's Mystic Flight which combines both Flight and Teleport) for a slight performance edge.

Since I discovered that it is possible to boost any of the Universal Travel set pieces (Blessing of the Zephyr, Winter's Gift) to 50+5 and have them work at any level (down to 7, I presume) and I am almost always using the Knockback protection piece, if I ever multi-slot a travel power it would almost certainly be to get a set bonus.

I don't know whether it was a bunch of those bids folks use to stash influence, or if someone really thinks a level 53 HO micro is worth 250 million..but that's what they're selling for now.
