As far as I can see, I have little/no benefit to cooperation, outside a small group of friends or when it benefits me immediately, in the game.
1, The economy is so deflated that I would rather destroy gathered items than use my precious gold to list something on the trade board that will cost me my precious gold even before I sell it. I used to think that players were being insulting listing such low prices for goods that I was offended. Now, I understand that it is a lack of gold on their part. In many cases, they are listing it for what they can offer.
Nothing UNCOMMON (green) or higher can be traded. Which is ironic, because I would have to trade it to another person. There is no server-to-server item transfer. Heck, character transfer is still broken. Even when it is fixed, it will have a $$$ cost (above 1 freebie). Also, I cannot have an ALT on same server; so, I wouldn’t be helping myself. I can understanding this with QUEST ITEMS or LEGENDARY (perhaps). But come on, I have no reason to even help newbies.
The amount of storage is insanely small. As-is, with a character with decent satchels and level, they can carry more than they can put in storage sheds. How crazy is that to even write? But then, I have a limit to how much I can sell (100 sells), and the selling mechanism is only to that territory. Again, just the hassle of all of this means that I have little or no incentive to cooperate with others.
I hope these get addressed.
