The DVDF alliance is coming up to its one year anniversary, so we were wondering what we could do to offer some help back to the community. That idea came to us, when for the first time in 2007 the alliance owned for a few hours, a town in factions and so we had access to cheap merchant goods including lockpicks.
So in order to benefit treasure hunters everywhere we are selling our entire stock of several thousand lockpicks at the same discounted rate as a town owner would buy them at (1200 gold, as opposed to 1500).
In short we are not making any money from this, just allowing those who would not normally have access to a cheap merchant the chance to obtain lockpicks.
The way it will work is this.
On the 22nd of July in Lions Arch International one, at 21:00 GMT we will be selling these lockpicks to all who come to the steps near first watch Sergio. Buy the lockpicks from only these people.
Only members with the DVDF tag, at that precise location will have the lockpicks so donít bug anyone else.
People will be restricted to buying a maximum of 50(saving you 15K gold), so as to ensure more people get a chance. We canít check, so please be honest and let others have a go.
When all the stock is gone, the DVDF members will leave the steps. Please donít ask us for any more, we wonít have any.
A small FaQ
Q: Why are you doing this?
A: There are lots of people who donít know anyone who can get cheap lockpicks in any sort of bulk. We are giving these people the chance to save some money and maybe have some fun.
Q:Are you making any money from this?
A:Nope, we are selling at cost price so we are getting no profit from it at all.
Q: I can buy lockpicks cheaper from x,y and z
A: For sure you can, it also takes a lot of time and hassle. This is saving you possibly hours of spamming.
Q:Why not give them away?
A:Mainly because itís costing guildies several million gold to do this, and also it could ruin the prices of those who try and sell lock picks on a more regular basis. This is a one time event. Also if you buy the full 50, we are effectively giving you 15K due to the cost savings on the lock picks.
Q: What about scammers.
A: Every transaction will be screenshotted and scammers will be reported if they try anything
Q: I think this is lame/<insert complaint> Idea.
A: Thatís perfectly ok, donít come. Good luck and have fun somewhere else.
Anyway, we hope to see you there. Be on time because these will go fast. I will update the thread as time for the event drawers closer.
