It is time for a new Schwarzmarkt! (Black Market)

What is Schwarzmarkt?
The so-called Schwarzmarkt was originally created as an opportunity to trade from homin to homin without paying a fee to the official merchants at their stalls and without filling the treasury of governments with taxes. Of course, we don't support criminal activities and since the laws of trade became more liberal since that time, it is not illegal anymore, but we want to keep the name and the atmosphere of it. The original idea came from the guild Rebellen von Loria who also organized the first sixteen Schwarzmarkts. Later this tradition was continued by The Free Soul.
At the Schwarzmarkt homins – in general the crafters themselves – offer goods to be sold by public sale. Bids are only allowed in dappers. The highest bidder gets the item in exchange for the dappers directly at the location of the Schwarzmarkt.

How does the process of the Schwarzmarkt look like?
The Schwarzmarkt is located in a cave in the Darkmoor (at the dead end of Windermeer). There will be a trek form Fairhaven to the location fifteen minutes before the market starts. The offers will be called according to their quality starting with goods of q100 ending with q250. Bids have to be done in around. The auction will last about three hours.

Which goods can be sold?
Generally, all tradable items can be sold. These are:
# equipment (weapons, armor, jewels, tools)
# items from outposts (materials, flowers, xp-booster)
# special items (yubo-plushies, candy canes, items from the wheel of fortune, NPC crafting crystals,…)
# profession items
All items must have their full hp. In exceptional cases, lower durability has to be announced before the auction. Raw materials generally are disclosed.

How you can offer goods?
If you want to offer something at the Schwarzmarkt send an ingame mail (shift+W) to Varo. This mail minimally should contain the following important information:
# vendor (if not the sender of the mail)
# (full) name of the item (land, layout (hq, mq, lq))
# quality (q250, q220,…)
# durability
# important data/values? (dodge, parry, damage, speed, resistance,…)
# desired starting bid
We will have a critical look at these items and tell the vendor if they will be offered at the Schwarzmarkt. Items with lower values may be disclosed. We will also have a look if the items fit the rest of the offers. Our goal is to have many different items in different qualities so that both the “small” refugee with his small purse and the veteran of many years and dapper millionaire can find something.
Sometimes it has been possible to offer items spontaneously. If you choose this way, you have to be aware that your item maybe could not be considered – registered items have a higher priority.

When will the Schwarzmarkt happen?
Target date of the 22nd Schwarzmarkt is:

Sunday, April 28th 2019, 17:00 GMT, 19 CET

This would offer you enough time to collect dappers and/or to craft beautiful and useful items.

If date or time change you will be informed.

That's 10:00 Pacific, 13:00 Eastern for those across the pond who do not feel like doing the math :)

Do not assume that you speak for all just because you are the loudest voice; there are many who disagree that simply have no desire to waste words on you.

Will there be a list of items made public before the actual auction?

You normally discover the items auctioned at the time of the blackmarket. Gotta keep the surprise up.
