Introducing: Tangled Bucks! [Feb. 24th, 2007|12:30 am]
Tangled Alliances



The guild bank has been introduced!

Ginkou has been created in order to service your banking needs.
Starting the day before yesterday, he has been collecting unwanted items from stacks of cloth/metal/ore/enchanting supplies, to greens and other drops.
You can obtain Tangled Bucks by donating items, any items, to Ginkou, who will in turn give you a set amount of Tangled Bucks for them.  Depending on the item, they will be vendored (crappy pally greens that nobody ever wants), put up in the Auction House, or - if exceptionally amazing - hold on to them until someone in the guild would choose to turn in their collected Tangled Bucks to purchase them ^_^ The money that Ginkou collects will be used to fund several ventures, such as guild sponsored birthday presents, mount/training charitable donations, and random acts of senseless kindness :P

Purchaseables! (the important part)

One of the bigger reasons for starting Tangled Bucks at this time is to help lower level characters purchase runs through instances such as Dead Mines and Stockades. It's an incentive for higher level players to help out and build community participation ^_^ Each instance has a set amount of TB designated to it. Let's illustrate this:

Deadmines. Five players. You're level 15 and you want to purchase a run from me, a level 68.  It's just you and I on the run. Deadmines costs 1 TB a slot for higher up players, so since I would be filling four slots, there would be a transfer of 4 TB from your TB account to mine. If you and another level 16 friend want to run Deadmines, I would be filling three slots, and the cost would be split between the two of you (as long as they were a guildie). If the other lower level player isn't a guildie, the entire three slot cost (3 TB) would be carried by you.  If there are two higher level players helping two lower level players, the two higher players would split the reward (3 empty slots means 3 TB which means 1.5 TB each) and the two lower level players would split payment (3 empty slots means paying 3 TB between two players, which means each would pay 1.5 TB each).

Does this make sense? If not, just message me or Alunas and we'll be able to help you I hope :D

Here's the rates!

Deadmines = 1 TB a slot
Wailing Caverns = 1 TB a slot
Stockades = .5 TB a slot
