  • Avarice Blade generates enough money to pay for itself in 44 minutes and 26.4 seconds, assuming that zero unit kills are made.

If Avarice Blade is then sold, it will sell for 320g, meaning that the item will effectively pay for itself. Holding this item for more than 26 minutes and 40 seconds will generate income.

  • The item's description, "Greed is good", could be related to the Warcraft III cheat code for extra gold and lumber "greedisgood". Both instances are based on the quote by the fictional character Gordon Gekko in the American movie Wall Street.
