Hey everyone,

I've been wondering if there is a in-game marketplace (like in diablo and other MMO's), where i can sell my awesome modded weapons to other players for a nice price. Trading ftw.

But I can't find it, and I think it's not there. But then again, this game explains nothing to me so i have to figure it out for myself and ask it at the forums so here I am again.

LOL.

See ya,

Elite T91

PS: If there isnt a marketplace of some sort, why not?

Nope. Most people just post in the specific console general forum and make note that it's a trade and whether they're US or EU.

What we need is a specific trade forum and a mail system. Where we can mail someone a gun with a COD, (after setting the trade up on here) and then it automatically deducts the scrip from your total when you collect the item from the mail system.

Makes very little sense to have a trade function but no trade section or auction house.

I don't even know how to trade! And what do I do with my fully exp SMG's that i have left? Sell them to the store for way too little scrip?

How is this more effective than selling them?

Break them down in the salvage matrix.

Trade platform, global/regional chat, mail. All items Trion knows how to do but decided not implement in Defiance. I have an orange AR with assassin synergy and lots of nice bonus I'd like to trade for a similar SAW. Not gonna happen, sorry.

Stand next to them. Then click control to bring up the quick chat, then go under nearby, then click their name, it will have a trade invite section. That's how you trade.

'cause the only other way to get resources is looting from dead enemies, and you'll need the resources to either buy lockbox keys or mod weapons. scrip you'll always likely have too much and not need it

why would someone want your weapon that is leveled up? I mean sure they get a weapon that they can not lvl or increase their WS. and you rip them off because they cant lvl it up. I know when I trade a weapon it is not lvled at all.

the auction house ruined D3This isn't D3. Every MMO I've tried have auction houses, and they all work. D3 is an entirely different game, driven entirely by loot. MMORPGs aren't.

That's why they need to put a reset button in the salvage matrix like they talked about.

Jhea I also heard that. The bonus will go away but you will get another one when you max out your weapon again. Why isn't this been done yet? I'm wondering how hard Trion is working on the game right now.

Are they cashing in ... or are the hard at work for us ... I really really would like to know this ...

The weapon doesn't "level up" does it? I thought it was my skill with that weapon?

The game calls it weapon mastery. Each individual gun has one skill level, once you max that out, you gain a bonus stat.
The problem is that you can no longer gain skill proficiency towards that type of gun. There are 20 skill proficiency levels per type of gun.

What he's talking about is when you max out the weapon, it will still be maxed out on the person that you traded to. So they won't be gaining any experience with that weapon.

I do not recall hearing anything about that. If that's the case, I need to trade some stuff to my friends and then get it back. Haha.

I haven't read otherwise i just assumed it was tied to the account not the weapon...

Tried it, didn't reset it. Didn't think it would. But I was hopeful for a moment.

D3 was ruined long before the auction house honestly. It was just the final nail.

I know when I trade a weapon it is not lvled at all. I would like a fully leveled weapon because I could clear the main stories faster because I work and cant invest as much time as I like.

A leveled weapon only has a minor bonus stat, you'll gain more by level the weapon on your own because it will level up your proficiency with that weapon type.
