as we all know we can trade items, weapons, copper and gold. but for many of our beginners will have very few good weapons and recently many experienced players have created new low level accounts and started pvping them for honor/rep. if we could lend items we could help them out for leveling, this way more people will play rather than quit the game be give a bad comment * this game is rubbish! * ( which it certainly defiantly not). you could lend the item for maybe (1h-24h) for maybe a SMALL amount of gold/copper.
- people who do not have a high amount of gold/copper can at least try the item, weapons, Armour etc.
- it will help both the lender and the buyer as the buyer can do what ever he wants with it (for a certain period of time) and the lender gets his gold.
- it will help new players so that they dont just play 5 seconds and leave a bad comment.
- people may start pvping with the items they could have sent through their main account SOLUTION: lent items cannot be used to pvp
please leave your thoughts on this matter
It's stupid cuz u haven't thought of the "bound" effect
In this game bindin some items matter and it's hard enough getting gms to imbind scammed items. What makes you think gms will go through the trouble of unbinding every lent item if players could bind lent items
That is a very unique and creative thought pwnumad! It don't know how hard it would be to implement but it would be useful to have a Rent feature in the trade post if it could be done easily. This would allow players to try out a Rented item (which would be treated as autobound and returned to owner if discarded) for a set fee. It would allow people to try out items as you say. I do know that many players lend items/pets to friends in game and lose access to them if the friend is not online when they want the item back. This feature would address that. It would also eliminate the need to trouble Lakoo to try get the item back. Even though it is not advisable to lend items currently many people still choose to do so. Personally, I think it would be nice to have an Item Trade feature to prevent alot of the scammers. Charge a swap fee and allow players to put items/gold into a deal and once both sides agree to a locked deal a safe trade can be made. These to features would also reduce the time Lakoo needs to spend looking into scamming since it would prevent it.
As Vincent says Lakoo would need to address the fact that players could bind items (or sell). Making these changes may take alot of programming time so they may choose to focus on other exciting improvements. An Item Rent Shop similar to the Mount Rent Shop may be a place where players can rent versions of some good items for copper to try before buying.
The idea was implied by time limited weapons in empire weapon shop. (with ridiculous price)
