    The strangest trade ever...

    OK, someone had a public game, good offer 4 bad vexile w/o resists
    I brought mine in... and his offer was a low resist vortex exile, an enigma, and a beast zerker for my... exile... I was stunned. I told him the trade was a bit unbalanced and he told me he didn't care, needed the ED. After pooping myself, I promptly clicked trade. The enigma is in diamond mail. I don't know what occured to this guy... but hey, I'm happy.

    Anyone else experience trades like this?

    Some guy once gave me a SoJ for my Hel rune. I guess he was desparate or something. When I did my NM Forge later that night, I got...a Hel rune :lol: .

    My feeling is if you trade for something you need your not being ripped off.

    Yeah it doesnt matter much when you mf -> find something nice -> then find that you have 40 x that item -> then trade it for something a new char needs for 1 lvl

    I traded an Arreat's Face for an eld once.
    The 1.10 runewords just came out and I wanted to be the first one to get a picture of Voice of Reason.
    It was worth it, I saw my photobucket pic linked to in several places.

    Some people acually try to get you to give them that good of a deal. I was looking for an artic horn (the bow in the artic set) and not having much luck. After waiting for about 30 minutes, someone finally came into my normal game where I offered them a shako for it(i was desperate ;) ). He promptly told me that his artic bow could buy my whole account so I should add more stuff. I told him that shako was more then enough for it so he told me I was a scamming n00b and left the game... :eek:

    Some of the better ones:

    Gave: 4os GMB, +3 bow
    Received: EbotdZ

    Gave: T key
    Received: 40 pgems

    Gave: 2x15 max jewels, fine GC
    Received: 3BO CTA

    Gave: Shael
    Received: Gul (I know these are worthless but it's still funny).

    Gave: 4os shadow plate
    Received: Eth stone hellforge plate (crappy defense but still)…
    EDIT:

    And in regards to the GMB, I'm NON LADDER. Can't even make faith out of that so I’m not sure what the dude was thinking. . . . (HOJ probably)

    When 1.11 had just came out, I traded a full organ set for a eth cryptic axe Pride- near perfect too.

    Back in NL, I traded 19% hotspurs for an soj..

    I spent a month looking for a ber to make beast. When I finaly got one I was short the um, but found a cold GC with a minor mod. 3 people joined that game instantly. Thusly I have made rule #6 You have to overpay to get what you want.

    At the beginning of this Ladder season:

    L full Sigon set for NL Enigma (turned out to be in an Archon Plate)
    L 7% Manald for NL HOTO (turned out to have 39% res)

    On L I traded Aldur's helm for a 52 Kira. And a 4 socket CV for Um. I hope to get an Ist for my 4 socket eth CV. (These things suck and I'd never use them, so I'm glad to see such high demand for them.)

    Today I tried my Enigma Wire Fleece for a Treachery Dusk Shroud. I needed it for my zon to break all Strafe breaking points with Windforce.

    I've been wanting to make Duress for a while now, however I lack the UM rune and the 3 socket armour (I thought I had two 3soc Archons but only had 1 and I went and made Treachery in it). I have an UM'ed Harlequins 139def that I was offering for just an UM and some 570ish def superior 4 socket archon plate that I was offering for regular 3 socket archon plate (superior would be nice though) and people kept coming into my game and calling me a noob scammer? :mad: :confused:

    Non-ladder trading does my skull in.

    I set up a "need tal ammy" game, cause, well, I needed tal's ammy. Waited a few minutes, and a 90ish sorc entered. Asked "What kind of sorc". I told them "blizzard". They dropped some high War Travelers, and exited the game. I looked up the account name, and thinking they'd lost their mind (or link), sent them a message.

    They replied "They free, I dun want them".

    Needless to say, they look good on my sorc. And, someone came in right away and traded me a tal ammy. :p

    Once, I got a guardian angel for a random lvl90 sorcs ear. :clap:

    also, I've overpayed... I once gave a soj for a lightsabre. (yes, it was in 1.10, so sojs had quite a value).
    Needed the lightsabre. Enough said.
