@kztm said in RMT and Artist; Is it against the rules?:
when that trade doesn't bring any in-game advantage. And doing art commissions may possibly fall into that
But the trade would bring an in-game advantage.
Meseta is the number one resource when high-end affixing, and as the game catches up to EP-6, affixing is going to be what separates the chaff from the wheat, as the performance difference is brutal.
Not only does high end affixing pretty much raise your weapon one tier above the current stat-wise, but very expensive and high-end S skills and specific affixes such as Phrase Decay can overdrive your gear into ridiculous amounts of superior performance as they offer percentage boosts, which pile up quickly.
I cannot stress enough how much more powerful a fully affixed weapon+units character is vs an average player, and the only difference between the two is the hundreds of millions of Meseta required for it.
So yes, trading ANYTHING outside the game for Meseta is still RMT and against the rules.
With that being said, i am not personally and morally against it as this is a cooperative game so i absolutely do not care one bit if the OP gets better gear than me due to her trade/art skills.
They do not harm me in any way by having better gear and if anything, they will probably make my run smoother and easier if they happen to be in my party.
But yeah, Meseta and expensive items are what makes endgame players in this game.
