Making AD through PvP

adinosiiadinosii Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 4,294 Arc User
So, you like PvP and want to make some AD? I have a suggestion for you.

There is one specific item that can only be obtained through PvP, which puts it out of reach of people like myself that are 100% PvE-focused.

If that item was available on the AH, I would not hesitate to pay, say, a million AD in an instant.

So, just what is this item? Well, when the dye colors were introduced, there was one colour that was PvP-exclusive - Otyugh Brown. I have every other colour - just not this one, and, well, for someone who likes to collect things, this "hole" in my collection is extremely irritating.

This colour only comes from the "Roar of the Pack" dye pack, which in turn can only be bought for the banners you get for Stronghold PvP.

The issue is really that nobody does Stronghold PvP these days, but if a group was to do that and farm this particular item, the profit could be...quite significant.
Hoping for improvements...

    They didn't like how the majority was doing the Stronghold Siege so they made it so most don't bother with it.
    I'm not looking for forgiveness, and I'm way past asking permission. Earth just lost her best defender, so we're here to fight. And if you want to stand in our way, we'll fight you too.

    They are just like the dragonflight dye packs ... not sellable at a vendor. You can put them up on the AH just fine.... I am just hoping that people who actually enjoy doing PvP and want to make a nice bit of AD will start farming them.

    What you're suggesting isn't PvPing, it's exactly like how people rigged matches and farmed siege for rubies to make a profit. If you recall, it was PVE'rs who did this with rubies originally, you might have better luck convincing them to do it.

    Maybe ask around to see if holy crusaders or other PVE guilds still do stronghold seige. They actually fight in these matches though, there were some team balance issues that needed to be worked on though.

    Currently the regular PVP population doesn't touch it, it takes too many people.

    This might not be an affective place to ask for help running a no fighting seige farm for dye packs though, you are more likely to encounter people looking to play PVP here.

    What I am suggesting is a way for people who enjoy PvP to make some AD at the same time. It does, however, seem there is zero interest in doing that, so I guess I have to push for some other way to make Otyugh brown available...which would just mean one less reason do do PvP.

    Yes I would. Why not? It is the only one I am missing, and I like having my collections complete. I don't expect ever using that color for anything, but I want it.

    For the record, I said I would pay a million AD for that box....
