Would you be willing to trade Guild MarksFollow

#1 Jan 20 2011 at 11:17 AM Rating: Decent
Would you trade your Guild Marks
For Faction Points:9 (11.2%)
For Gaurdians Favor:5 (6.2%)
For Anima:7 (8.8%)
Any of the above:26 (32.5%)
No thanks, they're hard to come by:16 (20.0%)
You don't have an option for what I'd trade:17 (21.2%)
Total:80


Some may ask why I didn't put Guild Marks for a different class... Well as much as I would like to be able to do so, at this point in the game I think it would further destroy the leve system. I know I don't enjoy doing lower ranked crafting leves, but I don't complain as much when I know I might have a chance for a few hard to come by points.

Personally I think trading for GF would be fair, possibly Anima as nierther nets a chance at more GMs.

Chose this in respect of DoH/L, as DoW/M are easy to come by

I'd trade them for equipment, as that makes the most sense for what you would want after having all the abilities. If equipment were not possible, I'd trade them for cookies. Preferably triple chocolate chunk.

No resource should be wasted. because there will be a point where all the rewards for marks will have been recieved, there should be a trade in for something (at no point should receiving marks be worse than gil). Any of the 3 you've listed seem fitting, but I'd rather see it be something class specific like gear or consumables.

I didn't think of items, it makes so much sense!

That's why I made this poll, I was wondering what happens when you have everything you want to R50 or even just all things purchased. I mean obviously they can introduce more purchasable abilities.

The reason I didn't choose Anima is because eventually we'll have more travel methods.

I'd trade DOM/DOW ones, but there is no way I'd want to trade DOL/DOH as someone stated. However, the option would be nice.

You missed the option where you could trade guild marks of one class for guild marks of another class. Even if there was a 50% tax or something I'd bet people would use it, if only because half the time you get offered Guild Marks of the wrong type.

Failing that, Faction Points are always nice to have so you can make another attempt at beating NMs or something.

Just wondering since I have not seen guild marks for a reward with leather crafting yet...

Is the reward of Guild Marks not actually shown in the regional leves and they are awarded just randomly when you are eligible?
I'm getting rank 1 leves left and right at 22 with no guild marks being shown as a reward and I'm just like grrr......

With regional leve's the marks are shown on the leve as a reward if you have the job at the right level to get them. When it comes to local leves (crafting) it doesn't show up on there. After you complete it and turn it in, there is a chance (not sure of percent) that you will receive marks instead of the gil reward. Think the lowest rank you can get marks from are the r15+ (I've gotten them on that rank but none lower then that. Someone else who has can post if its possible)

This. I almost went with "nothing, they're hard to come by", but then I realized there will be a point at which I have all the guild marks I want. . what then? Crystals for DoH jobs? meh.

You missed the part in my OP where I said I intentionally ommited that option. I did however provide a "something else" option if you feel that's what you want. I'm looking at long term, in the long term even with crappy GM rates for DoH we're still gonna get all the books and be collecting GM for no reason. Why not have a function to turn it into something.

R15 or higher leves only, and it's completely random for DoH unfortunately.

I don't like the idea of trading marks for other classes, but I think instead they should address the randomness of marks and how hard they are to get on certain classes. I don't think you should be able to directly boost one class with another like that.

How about the ability to have guild appropriate gear (I.e. gear that's optimal for someone of that guild) repaired to 100%

I checked the "You don't have..." option, but was thinking about repair mats or ranged throwing items, like how the tradeskill Guild Marks can be traded in for crystals.

I would LOVE to trade my lancer guild marks for anything remotely special/usefull/goodlooking. Just one more thing that baffles me that SE left out. No way to stand out in any way of the other 5000 people playing the same class. I wouldn't even mind getting insane amounts of marks for just 1 piece that gives something special.

(FFXI tiger pants anyone ? Lu shangs rod ? Map of crawler's nest ? )
