We Need More Writers!
Hi everyone. I just started this blog and there is a lot of information about the Trading Post that I still need to investigate. I am trying my best to think outside the box and come up with cool methods for making gold as soon as we all enter the game. However, I'm going to make mistakes and I'm going to struggle at first since I didn't play in the Beta.
If at any point I make a mistake or conjure up an impossible situation, please just shout it out in the comments and I will be happy to fix it.
I do want to bring you accurate and timely information leading up to the release of Guild Wars 2. So don't feel bad putting in a comment that explains why one of my points was incorrect.
So far, I already had this happen, as I mentioned an impossible scenario where a player wants to buy a tool to farm because his current one just ran out. While that player could buy the item on the trading post, it would be impossible to get the item without returning to town. Therefore, the player isn't going to be able to just get the purchased tool where they are standing.
While I am incorrect in the possibility of this playing out exactly like I suggested, I still believe players are going to buy tools from the trading post (unless they make the items un-sellable there). Either it will save them time running to the vendor that sells them or they are inexperienced players who don't know better. There could even be someone who finds a resource node and then believes that they can buy the tool on the trading post instantly like I did at first.
We are talking about making gold on day one here, so I still stand by this as a possible strategy.
