sending items to other players

It would be great if you could send items to other players as a gift, or open an auction house to sell pieces you don't need. I know you can sell them back to the store, but the pay out for valor items is in silver and pretty terrible. Would be nice to help out other characters in the guild (or alts).

This has been brought up a few times and I don't know that Venan has ever commented on it. I would be interested in hearing their opinion.

Others have said that this wouldn't be fair, which I agree to a certain extent. My compromise would be for any item that is purchased with Gold Shields to be transferrable, since I might have bought it with real money, I should be able to do what I want with it, even after I have no use for it.

I like the Idea of a Guild Armory, that the guild could upgrade through Challenges, having a set amount of items that it could hold and could be used by Guild Players and return to the Armory if the player leaves the guild.

Basically what Jetras said. This has been posted like 5 times.

I personally would like an auction house but to keep it fair, items have a min price (no tier 11 gear for 1 silver). This way instead of selling it, you could give it to someone else for a price. This could also sell valor items for loads of silver, or GS items for valor, silv items for GS, etc.

I believe Venan has replied to this already saying they are not keen or prepared on having the ingame economy driven by players.

Right CC, they nixed the auction sustem, but did they comment on just giving items to other alts or characters?

I, too, would like to be able to send items to my alts. One alt has a ton of lvl 2 gems that would be quite useful to another alt! It would be nice if they could share things! I didn't notice any reply to this.

Hehe.. Let's be realistic, guys. The whole thing about being able to transfer items/currency to other players or alts will greatly decrease our overall playing time as well as, inter alia, our inceintives to buy & spend gs. Oh, and no matter how badly I want to unload my main's stash of, like, 30 t3 gems to my baby alts, I understand this will completely ruin my interest (which is already marginal, to put it mildly) to develop baby alts further..

This said, Im definitely not against such transfers being possible but subject to certain restrictions, conditions, etc. But this needs to be handled carefully, as such changes may dramatically alter BOH.

Cheers

With the rate of gems dropping from bosses cut to nearly non-existent I don't have a bottomless credit card and this has changed my playing this game dramatically! If I wanted to spend that kind of money, I could very well go back to playing console games. Sorry venan but that's how things going on in Washington have affected me! I love this game but it's getting expensive to play

Are you sure they weren't because there are players in my guild that have this game alot longer than me and they said it has! I myself did nothing but farm for a whole weekend. I have 42e so I would dump my e, re-charge farm again, re-charge... You get the picture! I got nothing not one gem! It shot my hero score threw the roof and I made alot of silver and other stuff but no gems!
