    If on Monday you kill me and get my gear, and on Friday I kill you and get your gear, do not expect to get your stuff back as soon as I get mine back. It is no fun for me to go blow 70k silver on a couple of suits, and then have mine offered back because you died. It is a greasy tactic to try to keep people out of the fight, and I will just start trashing stuff and farming my suits back up.

    For faction stuff, that's what should be done.

    Make imbuing the more attractive option, then people will actually have suits worth taking.

    For the record, whatever I loot is usually on my vendor within 15 minutes. Ask anyone...

    I suggest using this before you equip anything you get back:

    I will not run off and throw your stuff on a vendor if there is fighting still going on, but as soon as there is a lull in the action I will do it. Unless I forget any armor I loot will be on my vendor within 24 hours.

    The key thing to remember is that getting your armor back isn't a "right", it is a privilege.

    Most, if not all folks in TnT will sell back and most will do so pretty quickly. Possessing an attitude on the subject is of no benefit to you. :heart:
     
  9. I didn't read that as he thought it was a right.

    What I got out of that was if people keep suits to 'trade' until they die and in the meantime he has to go farm silver to purchase a new suit, don't expect him to sell suits on a vendor.

    Possessing an attitude on the perceived attitude isn't going to help a ton either.

    Now that imbuing is here, I wish they'd just drop the prices back to prodo shard levels for faction items. It would alleviate a lot of the belly-aching and crying about faction suits.

    Well. I can see where speedy is coming from. Generaly if a group of JSV kill people we try to get all the gear onto one vendor. I have two suits out right now and have only been able to find two of the 8 faction items lost. This was days ago I lost the suits.

    So now my options are to wait for my posts on stratics to get answered and slowly get a suit put back together or go dip into my silver pile. The silver pile has been getting smaller since I have noticed a trend in gear slower to get on vendors or being so spread out amongst vendors I cannot find it.

    Nail on the head. I am not saying "GIVE ME MY FACTION GEAR!!" what I am saying is, if you die and I get an ICQ 5 minutes later saying "Hey I found some of your gear, tossing it on my vendor now." I am not going to put your stuff up right away either.

    On a related note, Kael still has a couple items on my Yew vendor from last night.

    I understand this looting is PvPers' fun. A simplier policy would be too establish
    a protocal: All looted items if they are to be returned must wait until
    after a set time the next day. Looters must post where items are vended.
    No postings, no returning of items will occur.

    It would be assumed that each PvPer will have multiple suits available at
    bank vault or house.

    I sure expect that there will be always some unfairness in implementing
    any return protocol.

    Trying to do return of items immediately will always rub someone wrong,
    and I sure it will slow the battle.

    Additional thought... really if someone looted you and waited more
    than a day to try to return it...I would think it was a trap at the vendor.
    Also, trying to get your suit back on Friday and make the other guy
    wait four days will just not work either. You need specific preformance
    in returns. So, next day delivery or just trash it.

    Well Yax, at my home i have alot of some things like, fey legs, kasa, gloves. About 4-5 in some cases. Cause people take so long to sell back I buy more with silver. Then about a week late I find my gear scattered around the shard. In some cases I only have one extra like crystaline ring. right now I have at least 6 rbcs and more of the crimson cintures and I cant find one on a vendor. This of course is over the course of a couple months.

    I can totaly see how people loot, drop the gear goto bed work all week and forget about it. Ive done it. A system like that just isnt going to work. This is no ones job they play to have fun not have responsibilites. But it sure would be nice if items got returned or at least posted at where they are being sold. Sorry if I dont keep up with all of you so well I know where everybodies vendor is.
