    Point of mule trading

    What's the point of mule trading? Is it more safe? I don't see what's wrong with the old fashion way (via trade screen).

    The main point of mule trading is so that people can conduct trades at their leisure rather than trying to cooridinate getting people online at the sametime. It's especially easier when you have a dozen different trades to do.

    That's definitely the only reason, since mule trading is actually less safe than the traditional way via the trade screen. That's because one of the traders has to send their items first, the potential for scamming is huge. That's why it's suggested not to mule trade without anyone that isn't a member of these boards, and in good standing at that.

    Well. Mule Trading also allows Different people in Different Time Zone To do trading without haveing someone to stay awake at weird hours just to do a trade. likewise for people who just cant be in game at the same time with the traders.

    this is Very Very Dangerous indeed. But look at the ratings on the people here before you decide to do mule trading. most people here are trustworthy.

    its also very convienient to do when trading massive quantities of runes/gems/jewels ect..
    since some forums have no limit on those kinds of trades, each mule acct can hold upto 97 items

    best to be done with others that have a good trade rating, or fewer less valuable items when trading with others that have a lower rating

    Nitpicking: It's up to 99 for amulets and 101 for rings :tongue:

    And 113 for potions.

    Although do explain how you get 99 amulets or 101 rings on a character, you can use the slots on the character but that would only get you to 98 and 99 respectively.

    Re: Point of mule trading

    Can't u have 8 characters per account? I think you can have more than 99 or even 101 items on a mule account.

    Re: Point of mule trading

    oops, my typo, should have been 'each mule char can hold 97 items'
    items being runes/gems/jewels
    equipable items can be more on corpse

    I think Kris means the corpses too. That'd be the only thing that can't be done on HC :flowers: .

    Re: Point of mule trading

    Correct. I'm not sure what happens to items on the cursor when you die. AFAIK it won't work, but perhaps you could squeeze in another ring :scratch:

    It's just a theoretical consideration. I never load up my mules like that. I usually keep 4x2 spaces clear, for trading.

    You are right, but as I said, it's just a theoretical consideration. BTW, one of my L1 mules wears a 15%ed breastplate, another one has a L1 RS/SM wand for leveling necros :tongue:
