For the last 2+ years the hot sales have been pretty much been following the same pattern.
after analyzing that last 6 months (July-December 2018) of sales here's how they work:


1) There are 10 possible "base" sales per month - usually all 10 sales are run each month.
(Though sometimes only 9 are run if to many days get skipped - we had 9 sales in August and October 2018.. and different base sales were skipped those 2 months)

2) Last sale of the month is usually on the 21st or 22 of the month (November and December sales started late so that last sale could end on the Holiday)

3) The sales ALWAYS run in order... (example; if 7 is skipped 8 is next)

4) some items are extremely likely to be in that sale, others will substitute in from month to month, and some like Serpent stones are purely random (Fok probably goes by requests for Serpent stones and Luminous Pearls).
Serpent stones and Luminous Pearls have been added to all Base sales (at one time or another) in the last 6+ months Except sales; 2, and 7.  Sometimes Serpent stones are on sale 2x a month (September, October, December).

Here is what is likely to be in the sales:
I will leave price off, because prices have been lowering on many items; pets, apparatus and even a few refines.

**There may be more items used as substitutions - I only took 6 months worth of data!

Sales are held for 2 days or until another sale starts!



if you want the data in .xls form; LINK
*note some of the dates in the VCO news section for sales are incorrect.  If you search on "Hot Sale" you will get one date for a sale and if you search "Mine Cave" or "Forest" you will get another date.  Some sales for different items are even recorded on the vco web site as being on overlapping days in the same month.
