GWG auctions...

#1_KwispYPosted 1/24/2008 4:58:29 PM
this is sort of a noob questions but i was looking at GWG auctions and wondering if you had to actually pay any real life money in the process. like how does it work? the gold stated is GW gold, and is there any costs on top of that? how do you get an item, do you meet in game? are there any gurantees you'll get an item?

Buying in game money or items is highly illegal as far as it's against the TOS and it's prime target to rip people off. You pay 25 dollars for 150 plat, and they never show up. What are you going to do, complain to Areanet?

Don't do it. There are legit sites, but you really can't discuss it here.

Take some reading comprehension classes.

Anyways, you pay nothing but the gold listed on the auction. You do meet up in game. There is no guarantee that you will get your item.

Transactions through GWG Auctions are done in-game, paid for using in-game gold (or an agreed substitute, such as Globs of Ectoplasms). As with real-life transactions, be prepared to wait a few days before buyers or sellers have the time to meet with you. Most transactions work seamlessly as long as both parties are mature about, but now and then you might run into a moron who thinks it's a good idea to sell your item to someone else for more money.

Just keep an eye on the feedback ratings and you shouldn't run into people who renege. I've bought a number of items from the guru auctions and had no problems.
