    Default Official: Cross Shard Trades

    As part of our 4.1 release, we have extended our in-game trade system to allow trades between characters on different home shards. This means that your character will be free to trade coin and items with any player character you can interact with in the world, regardless of whether you are both from the same home shard. Before we release 4.1, we are opening up cross shard trades to our players in the PTS environment to have a go at it. To really put the system through its paces, we ask that you conduct trade transactions between characters on different home shards. Trade as many coin and items with each other as you like. The trade should execute as any other normal trade.

    Please note that this feature does not allow a character to send items to another character on another home shard via a mail message.

    We would appreciate any and all feedback about this feature. In particular:

    • Did both parties receive the items in the trade?
    • Are there any significant delays between the time the ‘Trade’ buttons are pushed and the trade transaction finishes?
    • If some catastrophic failure happens before a cross shard trade completes (e.g. one or both clients crash), are the items involved in the trade returned to the respective character inventory, and are no new items added to either character’s inventory?
    • Are there any UI issues involved in the cross shard trade.

    If you do encounter any bugs with the cross shard trade feature, please try to provide as much detail as possible. At minimum, the following information would be helpful:

    • The name of your character and your home shard
    • The name of your trade partner’s characters and his/her home shard
    • The time the trade was attempted
    • A description of what each party was attempting to trade and what the result of the trade was

    Please, have at the cross shard trade feature and post your feedback!

    SUPER NEWS! (I mean, SUPER news. An end to mules sort of super news.)


    Random note: On PTS there are Alpha and Omega servers only. Will we be getting randomly assigned shards so we can test better?

    Random question: Will this be meaning a shared AH in the eventual future or still separate? (I think we're all cool with keeping these separate.)

    There's no need to do that. While the Xfer to PTS from live sends you to the Alpha server, simply from the Char select screen, select the Transfer button, and move a character to the Omega shard.

    Inquiring minds want to know, Is this a predecessor to cross shard guilds?

    With eventually the goal being, no shard's, so to speak. Just a big happy family of folks whose data merely is flagged as to what DB server their character was created on?

    Separate AH will not exist anymore after Xshard trade... You just put a f2p dummy on each shard, trade plat/mats/ w/e to any toon and sell/buy on the AH on that shard.. and trade back to the char you want the stuff for... Xshard trade is essentially the same as Xshard AH... Just need some extra f2p accounts

    One thing to keep in mind is it was stated that you won't be able to mail items. So, unless both of your toons are on at the same time you will have to use a second player to help you get the stuff to your main.

    BTW, I do like the change and think it can only help the progress of the game.

    Not to look a gift horse in the mouth... any intention of this feature rolling out later down the line?

    The only remaining stepping stone being to create a separate account to trade items seems like another way to have more accounts in rift but those being mostly inactive accounts...

    @ Rutte....

    This means that your character will be free to send coin and items to any player character you can interact with in the world, regardless of whether you are both from the same home shard.


    Guess you don't get what I mean....

    trade with any player/char on any shard.... so create f2p, create a dummy on each shard, summon to tbay... and trade plat/mats or w/e with that char... buy/sell on that ah.. and give back to your char on your main account...

    as for both you and that other toon being online at the same time... that's called multi-boxing.. and it is allowed

    Brand new F2P accounts don't have access to the AH. You need to unlock like...500 loyalty to be able to use the AH.

    brand new f2p has access to AH... you can buy..

    and no doubt there are enough players who invested or will invest that one rex to get the ah full package on one or more accounts

    Thanks, I'm familiar with Multi-boxing I just didn't want anyone getting the wrong idea that they'd be able to send stuff to their other toons by mailing it. I didn't know you were referring to Multi-boxing in your response, though. Thanks for clearing it up.
