Trading Silver and Items


8 posts in this topic

Is it true that you can't trade silver and what items you can trade are few and far between? If so, I feel like this is highly detrimental to an MMO experience. I get the reasoning, we want to limit gold selling, but this is by far the most absurd system I've seen yet in an attempt to do that. Black Desert (and any MMO) is a cooperative game. People are going to want to play with their friends and people are going to want to help out their friends. I get that their are probably maneuvers to get around these limitations, but it seems extremely convoluted. If it is true that you will not be able to trade silver or most items, can we please make a movement in order to lift this mechanic? I feel like the choice would be a no-brainer. Also, sorry in advance if there's another thread dedicated to this. If there is, just poke me and I'll bump that one!

Dunno if there is, but yes this is true. I personally just traded a friend of mine a few days ago and found we could trade nothing of what we have to each other. Personally i found it kinda lame as well lol. But i know why they did it.. so while i'd hope they change it, it's up to them.

Yeah, of course! Definitely up to them 100% but I REALLY hope they decide it's best for their game to allow that kind of stuff because it is super lame. D:

I understand not wanting to trade money to cut down on gold sellers (well, silver sellers) but we do need to trade items other than consumables.

I made a few outfits before the end of beta to see what they looked like - I had no time to gather the crafting materials so I had to buy them, and naturally I quickly ran out of money. My friends were willing to give me what money they had left, but of course we couldn't trade silver. No problem though, they could just buy the materials for me, but we couldn't trade those either. In the end they bought potions and gave them to me so I could sell them, which was... pretty ridiculous.

In addition when I made the outfits, I couldn't trade them to my friends to let them try them on, which was a shame. So please let us trade items, or at least crafting materials.

In JPN version there is no trade p2p at all, only marketplace.

In CBT-1 was possible to trade p2p only Consumables.

There is a large discussion on the matter at this topic:

he exactly said how this will create such a situation. ppl will sell ingame stuff for real money. and that is (especially in a pvp game) not that good.
