Exchanging rare items instead of selling them
Quite a significant number of GW1 players on this forum are high end item collectors and have been for years.
I have been collecting staves and wands/scepters (Celestials) mostly over the years and I have come to a point where I can't find any of the items I want on the market.
That can have three reasons:
(1) The item doesn't exist (although it's theoretically possible)
(2) The item exists, but is on an inactive account
(3) The item exists, is on an active account but the owner doesn't want to sell it.
So, (1) and (2) are out of my hands.
As for (3): If I had a really, really rare item myself, I wouldn't want to sell it. BUT: I would possibly trade it for another item that is as rare as my own.
However, that kind of trade is not really possible through a regular SELL/BUY-thread on guru and ingame even less.
Would it make sense to maybe add a topic in the Trader's Outpost forum for trades like these?
Trades where people offer rare items and add a list of what they'd be looking for in exchange?
WTT my Celestial Staff req12 Divine HCT 20% Heal for a Celestial Staff req9-12 Fire + ectos (depending on req)
WTT my Bladed Shield req10 Tac +29HP +10vs. Fire or my Paper Fan req9 SR, HSR 20% Death HCT 10% for a req8 Katana 15^ench.
Keep in mind, those are just some random examples.
I hope I made my point clear enough and maybe some of you feel the same way. And I hope this all doesn't sound too stupid ^_^
