Guild Needs/Transfer System

Postby GTAce » Mon Apr 25, 2005 1:11 pm

Cix brought this up to me earlier...she was wondering if we could set up some sort of list or system for the things that each guild member needs...

ie: linen, silk, mace, dagger, axe, staff, boots, belt, rings, bags, leather, silver, gold, mithril, you name it...anything...

Ideally, whenever we collected certain items that we dont need, but another guild member does need...we would know who to give it to...hopefully encouraging more exchanging among the guild and less in the auction house...this will work if everybody participates in it - instead of us spending hours finding stuff on our own, or spending lots of gold in the AH, we have 10 members finding stuff for us instead of one...

This thread is here to figure out how we're gonna do it...there are obvious concerns with it....say I gather a stack of 20 silk cloth...I could easily sell it in the AH for 60s or so...but it kinda sucks to just give it away to another guildie for nothing in return...sure, you're helping out the guild, but you're taking a hit for it...if everybody participated and gave equal amounts of stuff, this wouldnt be a problem, but that wont happen naturally....how do we encourage everybody to do this? should we compensate people for items given? (pay 20 or 30s for that stack of silk...?)...maybe have some sort of ummm...merit system or something, for example --

say I give a blue sword to cass...i would get bumped up in the list or something for the next good item...if we perhaps could have "dibs" on stuff...the person that has given the most will receive it before any other...but this presents the problem of lower level people trying to find stuff, but they cant compete w/ people 20 levels above them putting out items left and right

i dunno...i dont have a lot of ideas, hopefully some of you do :D

/me likes the idea. Have no ideas at this point, but gimme time. Personally I think if another guildie needs it they should have dibs on it and the economy be damned. Give it up to them. That's just me tho.

It would be nice if it were that easy...but let's face it...

Say you work your ass off for something...you complete a high level instance...and you find a blue item along the way...what if somebody in the guild really needs it and you give it to them...but you never receive anything back

...not a good situation to be in, and it will happen if we dont set something up...if it doesnt happen, people just wont give really nice stuff away, they'll end up selling it to somebody else

i always ask if people can use something..if i think a player in the guild can use it i put it in my bank until i see them on...i don't mind giving away items at all..if nobody in the guild can use it, i sell it ..myself i don't want to charge people for things i get from a quest...i'm in it for the fun of the game..i want the people around me to have the items they need or the best weapons they can have..if i think i have something better for them..i'll ask..if it's better than what they got ..it's thiers..
i'd much rather them get it than me sell it..

I was thinking more on the lines of things you need for your professions. I dont think anyone is going to want to just past along something blue just because....

I agree with Crazyhorse...

If I get a really kick arse item from a quest, but I cannot use it, pass it on. If noone else in the Guild needs it then sell it / auction it / trade it. However, whatever everyone wants is fine with me now BRING ON THE SLAYIN!

You people must have better hearts than me...because, like it or not, if I find a blue item, or a kickass green item, I'm not giving it away to free to anybody other than myself...


Well maybe I will for... :bj:

Yeah, you might not be into all the trading now...but when you hit level 40 and you have mount capabilities but cant afford a mount, you're gonna regret not trading now...

Meh, as far as making your own weapons...you'll find better stuff that gets dropped than you'll make...the high level stuff takes some crazy resources to make...by the time you collect all the stuff, I'm sure you've found something better

you guys could work on a barter system. you have something someone needs they get something you need and do swaps.

a tiger mount is 80 gold at level 40...level 60 is when the nice mounts come into play 1000 gold..i'm not sayin i won't get into it later ..but for now i'm just enjoyin findin new places on the world map and tryin out a few things..i'm sure when i get ready i'll start earnin some serious chips.. right now i'm lucky i get a couple hours in to play with this house goin up..
it's all about the relax for me... ;)

i'm not knockin anyone for wanting to get into all the tradin with each other or chargin anyone..i think there are alot of option for people to enjoy this game.. some really are into the barter thing..thats whats great about the game..
