    Trading... it works?

    I've read a lot of guides (like this one) that suggest certain items as 'cheap' gear to get as you're building your character (a sorc, in my case) into a lean, mean, MFing machine. However, I can't find any idea of what 'cheap' is or where to find such things for sale cheaply or otherwise. The auction site (RPGTrader) doesn't have any Wizardspikes or Vipermagi (no matter the resist% on the Vipermagi) on USWest Ladder that I can find.

    How does one go about finding these things to trade for? How much is 'cheap'? What does a lvl 54 sorc look for to trade for these things?

    If no one is selling the items you're looking for, you can simply put up an ISO (in search of) list stating which items you wish to trade for. As for price, cheap usually means mid rune or less.

    Pgems or runes like rals amns hels will trade pretty well for gear like wizardspike and vipermagi

    Uh, people trade that kind of stuff for pgems all the time in the trading forums. Works much faster than RPG traders too.

    ISO postings are not allowed over at the RPGTraders site, but they're fine in the trade forums here. Here's a link to the West trading forum:

    Good luck!

    Hm. I was wondering what I could get to trade for stuff, but today I found a Lem and an Um while getto-MFing NM Meph+Pindle. I'm given to understand there's good demand for those rune, especially the Um?

    yes, keep the um and try to get tal armour (that's a good start for a sorc). you may not be able to trade for the armour immediately, some may even call u a "noob", but eventually someone will dump it to u for that um. i don't know what u can get for a lem that would be worth while. i recommend holding onto the lem

    On West, you might be able to get both Tal's armor and amulet for the Um alone. Those two items are a godsend for any beginner sorceress.
