First of, it makes no sense to me people would even try this unless they trust the other person completely (a friend maybe), things like this  have always had a huge chance of being scammed with.

There won't ever be a safe way to do this, its not the intention of the developer or publisher that you will be able to trade pearl shop items directly for other in game items.

Never gift a stranger anything upfront. That is just common a sense dude.You just handed someone you don't know from a hole in a wall $10 basically with only their word that you would get something in return, that is just asking to get ripped off.

Ok, since they added the pearl gifting system back, people have started buying dandi weps by gifting people pearls for them to put the item on the market. well seeing as bdo was doing nothing about this. I thought i would join in on it and i gifted pearls and instantly got blocked by the person "NAVEKI", are they any safe way to do this?

Its even more fun when they gift the pearls and then someone else gets the pre-order :)

So you just jump up and confess to ignorance, idiocy, and a likely TOS violation. I think that's called a hat trick. :P

It is said in pretty much every gaming community across the industry.

TRADE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

We do NOT, i repeat, do NOT have a guaranteed trading system.  If you take someones "word" that they will do what they say they will do, you are doing so based on blind faith.
You are fully responsible for those actions, and if you loose out, its your own fault.

That doesn't make it right, and that doesn't mean the other person cant get in trouble.
It just means don't be taken for a fool, and if you do this kind of trading dont come whining to us about it.

nothing in TOS says you cannot gift someone for putting an item on marketplace.

I'm not whining. I asked a question.

Why wouldn't you just see if you win the bid in auction first before sending anyone anything, its not like its guaranteed you would even get the item in the first place?!

First, MMO's in general are the wrong game genre to have "faith" in people. Second, this community in general is one of the more toxic I have seen so definitely the wrong game to have that misplaced faith. Third, You are paying someone using real money to receive an in-game item which is called a RMT and is a violation of the ToS.

i dont even get how all this actually works out. it just doesnt unless rng is on both ursides. and the scamming goes both ways, if that person did listed and u got the item but then blocked the seller. i really laugh at this whole thing ppl came up with. this is stupidity at its finest.

You are just not smart as the player that scammed you. First, it's probably not legal to sell in game items for real money/pearls like in almost all MMOs, there is just no possible way to check if someone did that without actually blurting it out like you did (i don't even know why did you think it was a good idea and you didn't ask via ticket/ on forum beforehand) and second, how can you give him pearls first when there is no guarantee that you will get the item from pre-order anyway... don't say you have faith in people when he literally can't guarantee that the item will go to you and not some random player. Also.. you do realize that even if the item was not on market previously you will not be able to put pre-order on it and still need to BID on it with other players when it appears on market...

Well they need to post theirs so you cud buy attempt to buy it first, i mean theres no sence in doing it any other way since theres no guarante you wud get the item even if he keept his part of the bargain.

Not to mention this might not even be in accordance with TOS.
