    I was wondering, as Im still fairly new to the purchasing of high end weapons.
    When I want to purchase something that the seller wants more then 124/125 Million for exactly how would you folk recommend or have accomplished doing the transaction. The issue is, The absolute most gold that can be traded in a window is 125 without a bag. Is it a trust issue with the seller?

    In essence its a trust part on both of you...you could however load up pack horses with the checks and get the seller to snoop the packy (even if hes/shes a thief checks are blessed cant be stolen form packy right?) and count the checks. then transfer the pets across to him/her.

    Problem is that over 125 mil and bank cant hold the checks either, and castles for example cant be vendored :)

    I was thinking about the pack animal option but didnt know if it was viable, I was unsure if the animals could be traded with items in packs. That certainly helps.

    Another option I had thought about was loading an empty plot with chests filled with checks, the Issue here is If one party or the other cannot or doenst have the option of accepting the plot it would create an issue.

    Broker or trust.

    Just bought a castle on Catskills for a few hundred mill. Used a trusted broker, gave them 3 packys with mills, they told the castle owner, got castle, they got their gold. Not too difficult.

    It starts to be a pain when you have an amount that doesn't fit on 4 packys.

    I sold an ari shroud back in the day for 900million. The guy had to trade a plot with 9 locked down containers each with 100 visible checks. Imagine how fun that was to bag/look through and then eventually xfer.

    Not many items in the game anymore worth that much.

    Edit: Another common practice would be trading items with a fairly set value in place of the gold, such as 20 xfer tokens to cover 300mill.
