So, here's my suggestion TO END SCAMMING!!!
When we sell an item to another player, we can charge a fee. Why not expand upon this system? When TRADING items, one player sends a message attached with the item he/she wants to trade, and just like how we charge a fee, we could charge the desired item. SO SIMPLE!!!
I know there are a lot of items, but like how the Trading Post is narrowed down, you could find the item that you want to trade for by select (in the case for Ire of Abyss – I want one!!!) Spaulder, Epic, Level 55+ and be led to a list of gear and then select the desired item. This would require Lakoo to inventory all the gear/items on the game, but with a little work, you'll have A LOT more enjoyable and safer game.
Lakoo, I urge you to implement any system to prevent scamming. These players are ruining the game for others, which in the end will lose business for you. Save yourself ALL THE TROUBLE and provide a safe trading system. It's what's best for you and the players.
Thank you for reading and I hope this leads to some sort of solution. It's long awaited.
