In the char bazaar:
Anti scam warnings for buying a Rookgaard character:
- If you bid on a character with a wedding outfit, the outfit will be removed from the character when the transaction is finalized.
Also - if you put your character (with a wedding outfit) to an auction and nobody buys it, you will also loose your wedding outfit. Edit: wedding outfit no longer disappears if the auction is cancelled or noone buys the character.
- Red notification and greyed out item slots appear for characters which have at least 1 item in their depot or inbox on mainland. It it possible for a scammer to avoid the red message in his character auction:
If a player goes to Island of Destiny and gets a brass set with a help of his second character, then puts it on an auction, there will be no red notification. Characters located in the starting area on Island of Desiny have their residence set to Rookgaard and they have no vocation, so it's not known where the character is located, before you buy it.
Usually, such scam character would have level 8 or 9, but t's possible for a scammer to share experience points in a party mode on his two characters while they're on Island of Destiny, so even if it's level 10+ character, it's still possible to get scammed with brass sets, jagged swords, daramian maces, steel axes, among other items, which can be found in the vocation rooms on Island of Destiny, looted from monsters located in the dungeons, or bought from the NPCs.
The red notification does not appear for old auctions, which started before the implementation of the feature (2023.03.01).
