Anyone noticed on the main page of the marketplace tab how you can donate a box of draconic armor for 8K contribution points and a PRECURSOR for 1.5K. Don't want to sound greedy, but based on relative selling prices on the TP, I think a precursor should be worth about 250K points. I can imagine most people would not dream of donating a precursor, but for fair amount of points i might consider it if I ever got like a dorky spear or trident precursor to drop.

Prices on our site are not based on what they go for on the tp. Just the base cost of selling the matts to a vendor. It's a test of sacrifice of sorts. ;)

I know i don't HAVE to, just seems too low to actually create an incentive. Imagine the turnout if an event had a raffle for a precursor. Might go to overflow...

This system isnt designed to be a trade. Its a measure of what one is willing to sacrifice for the whole. If someone was willing to drop a precursor for 1500 contribution it would be saying a lot about that persons personality. There are things in this site that are done to test peoples personalities. This allows us to locate and elivate certain personality types into our eldership. There is a very specific type of psycological profile I am after and the site helps separate them from the rest. If something seems off its most likely that way for a reason. So far to date the only precursors ive had come our way have been from elders.
