Barter Event

By enelimm | Wed 31 Aug 2016 10:00:00 AM PDT


Happy Anniversary PWI!!!

Eight years is nothing to scoff at, so to truly celebrate the game we all know and love the right way, we’re bringing you an entire month and then some of events, giveaways, and prizes!

To kick things off in high fashion we’re going to begin with a very special “Bartering Event”! We know you guys have all sorts of bound and unbound items that you would love to unload to free up space, so this is your golden opportunity! Not only that, but we’re going to make it worth your while.


Here’s how this will work:

Each week we will create forum threads listing an item up for barter. We will also list an opening barter item.  Players who have this item, or an item of equal or more value may put that item up for barter. This includes items that are bound to your character. Once an initial bid has been made, you may attempt to beat that bid by offering up better or more items up to barter. Keep going until we close bids for that item. Have the best bid and you win the Barter. Please note… Only bid items you are willing to part with, as we will be removing those items from your character (both bound and unbound) when we give you your bartered item.


Here are the rules:

  • Bartering only! Event Gold, Gold or in-game coin cannot be used as part of the bartering process.
  • All items offered in the trade must be items you currently have on your character.
  • You cannot have collaborative bids.
  • You may trade any type of item that is considered “high value” – this includes things like rare chance pack drops (all drops that are less than a 1-2% drop rate), items that can only be obtained in the cash shop, and exclusive high tiered items in game or that are only acquired through competitive gameplay.
  • You can offer any amount or quantity of an item that matches or bests the previous offer.
  • At the end of every session, we will close the thread at the end and look at the list of items. All items that are offered in the winning bid will be removed during maintenance and replaced with the items won.
  • If there are no satisfactory offers or the minimum offer value has not been met, the thread will be closed as “no bid, did not complete”. Minimum offer value is determined by current in-game coin value average. 
  • When bidding, players must list their Character Name and Server in each bid, even if you had already previously bid on the same item.


For those of you curious as to when these sessions will begin, please note the following times:

  • Session 1 – Begins 8/31/16, Ends 9/5/16
  • Session 2 – Begins 9/7/16, Ends 9/12/16
  • Session 3 - Begins 9/14/16, Ends 9/19/16
  • Session 4 – Begins 9/21/16, Ends 9/26/16
  • Session 5 – Begins 9/28/16, Ends 10/3/16


All Sessions Begin at 10am PDT and End at 11:59pm PDT


Good luck everyone and happy bartering!
