“LVL 8 here. will let you stone me for a GS blank (goggles).”
First in haste since I was about to meet papa endbadguy in Sinister storage I thought that the person was offering a GS blank for getting stoned so I sent a tell – I might have a stone but it’ll be free of charge. Then I got a no ty back. Then I realized that the person wanted to get stoned and paid for it. You would get the char a stone and in turn you paid. That was new; something I would never do in a million year. So I could get the white pet? I mean I already had it – got it the first day for doing something good. But pay someone for doing that person a favor?
Not a chance.
There are those who treat a MMO as a business proposition. That sell things with profit in mind. I mean I trade and sell too. When I need stuff or want to make a little bit money of an item I have in storage. But it’s not something I do. I do it because I have a need for plat or want to get rid of stuff. Others do it as a matter of fact over playing. I don’t know if this person did it – but we know there are those with alts maxed out on plat who spend most of their time running to sell.
I just find it a waste of time. Maybe because I have a limited amount of time to play the game and the idea of spending it trading seems odd. Now what would be cool is if you could open up a shop. Say you ‘rented’ space somewhere and you could set up your own little manufactury. By having your own little private space of deconstruct and such and then a store front where you sold your goods. People could go there, pick my store (say trinkets and craep) and pick from my creations. Maybe a bargain bin section where stuff that don’t sell automatically end up with a 50% discount if I set it up like that. Where I could spend an hour or so making stuff then leave it on automatic for people to go shop in. And where I could sell random stuff. That way I didn’t have to use the trade channel. Or pay 30% at the AH. Sure – the powers still would get their 5% share but I got to make stuff and sell it and not waste my time peddling it.
