    Hey, I was wondering since the gnob is permanent on the city, the sales are periodic and the items are chosen by the development team. Why don't you make an event so that he sales every items or every set he can sell. So that we can all spend the drakens we got from Dragan Event.

    I think "Yard Sale" is a good idea for its name. This would be fun to happen on Valentine's Day, because it's all about giving the perfect gift to our soulmate, and on this case our beloved toon :D

    What is your opinion?

    I have some idea of my own.. People could leave at gnob some items from event or good items that way we could "sell" our items. And if somebody gets it we get the drakens. It could be an open market (we could take the item back if nobody buys it). We could sell for Draken that way the drakens could be a real currency inside the game, and more valuable. For example Once per week There could be a sale from the players, items they dont need, Dragans for example..

    Gnob used to show up a couple times a year, but when it did, everything was for sale.

    Then a while back, during the Dragan event, you could find a claw (or some similar name) that would give you a pass to Gnob's cave where you could buy anything you wanted.

    Players were constantly begging for Gnob, so what the dev's did was bring him permanently to Kings Hill with one twist.

    Of course the promise at the time was that Gnob would offer sales on a regular basis. Like most of the promises DSO makes, it failed and did not happen as described.

    I think it might have been a Jabbax's hand :D

    But yeah, it's almost the same mechanics as before, the "sales" now are as equally rare to Gnob's visits in the past, with a lil' difference, when Gnob visited before you could buy everything from his offers, now when he has a "sale" you can only buy certain items, so, it was a huge decrease in quality of life when it comes to Gnob offers, most likely pushed by greed (un-lucky spheres always available, anyone?).

    Well why not? It would be fun to us new and unlucky players get some good gear :p I play a little bit more than a year and i would like to have some sets complete. It's the only MMO game that doesn't have any kind of trade (that's partial good). I don't support direct trade too. But if you give it to gnob to handle the rest it would be so good and innovating for the game.

    Any form of trading can be abused. While this may seem like a good idea it would create a system to transfer Draken from one character to another. Even if a restriction was added that one could not sell/buy from toons on the same account that would not mater much. An intermediary account could be used. Or perhaps the transaction would not be a 1:1 exchange. Still does not matter since the Draken being moved would be coming from a toon that is not going to use it anyway.

    Also, Draken has been monetized. Yes, real money can be spent to get Draken. It is quite expensive but there are heavy cash players in the game that would use this to further their advantage.

    One of the long standing positive aspects of this game is that trading, of any type, has never been allowed and the official position thus far has been that it never will be. I would consider it one of the darkest days for this game if that ever changed.

    Luck be with ye,

    You traded the Jabax hand for a Map to Gnob's Cave.

    Amen... nothing else needs to be said on the topic.

    Well you are kinda right, when i started the game last year this was one of the best things i have seen in a MMOrpg game, i mean i couldn't beg for items or beg me now. But a market with gnob and with some cool thinking it could make the game more interesting. Though i must agree with you in the end, since their quality "test" isn't so good, so we will end up with something scary..

    I like this idea.Id also suggest bringing new stuff at the gnob every now and then.Shuffle-ing between dragonache set and dark set + the companions from defeat the invincibles event is nice too but id love to see some brand new stuff there from time to time.I still dont understand why gems and essences are not in gnobs offers lol but would be cool if those would be added there imo.
