Gladiators have an Overseer they answer to, do you know how many years it took for them to get a rack log? And ask the Overseers of the past if even after getting a rack log whether they used their private room or public racks? DA's have someone to answer to, yet how many Generals and HO's use their private racks or the public ones for their own EQ? I can keep going and pointing out several guilds which all have someone to answer to who still refuse to use the public racks. Its not just a Merc issue.Drazson wrote:You enter a guild where you answer to nobody, just walk up and join. It's supposed to be ugly. It's illogical RP-wise to lose your stuff though. Making people pay will hurt newbies, not worth it. <mmark> items to make them unsellable in shops since it's identified as guild equipment? In due time (soon, most probably) people will understand it's not worth it to rackloot and just.. wont. Worth a try anyway. The marking could be done by a guild NPC but if there isn't one probably give the option for the player to do it themselves. OR have an option to personally mark the item to restrict its use to yourself only (for the case of imbued), still having the option to keep it vaguely marked to allow guild donations.
It goes beyond selling too, Ive caught people trashing items they couldnt sell in Mercs. When Knights rack logs were down and someone raided them all of our items conveniently were in enemies racks, yet no one had left the guild and just happened to be during a 35 min window where no one was awake. And even if it did have a mark not to sell because SoHM have a similar feature, that didnt stop Glimrinth from dropping it in his private head tinkerer room.
