Public Hideout - LF Small Guilds, Solo players, Traders

    • Public Hideout - LF Small Guilds, Solo players, Traders

      Hello,

      I will be setting up a public hideout with the launch of Queen, I know I know everyone is setting up hideouts but let me finish. This hideout will be close to a BZ trade post, so people who don't have a hideout to craft in can travel one zone away and use the buildings/facilities available.

      I will be personally keeping the market full of food/pots/weapons/mounts/etc and intend to have this market rival the market in the trade post.

      The Hideout will be placed in such a manner that your invisibility gained from trade outpost will get you most of the way there, and it will be easy to place scouts for your journey back,

      I am in BA, however once we have settled in unless pushed against a wall the defense of the hideout will be up to us (the people living there), mercs, and savvy business deals with the zone owner.


      What Do You Get


      [*]A place to "home"/spawn at
      [*]Shops to use which will be fed (Fees kept at similar prices to royal cities)
      [*]Ability to buy a house for your group (prices will be discussed in future)
      [*]Market full of good shit
      [*]Potential clients (If you like to do escorts)
      [*]Other people to fame/pvp with



      What Do I Get


      [*]A extra place to sell products
      [*]Silver made from shops
      [*]Players to employ for escorts runs
      [*]A place to hang out
      [*]Players to help defend the home



      Disclaimer

      There is no guarantee that we wont get targeted by multiple guilds and potentially die in agony, however i will put my best efforts into defending the hideout, and will invest a sizable amount of silver.


      P.S

      I cannot disclose where the hideout will be yet due to the possibility of it being destroyed before its only just placed, however I will announce it after it has been deployed, and ready for business.

      Just looking for potential homeless people/groups/guilds, traders,crafters, gathers so we can get a steady population going when its time.


    • If u read correctly - Blast204 is a member of a big guild if i am not mistaken (BA=Blue Army?), so that should make a save arrangement possible...

      Overall a great Idea - i hope it works out and good luck with the execution...

      Our guild Zorn felt a bit bad yesterday destroying two outpost from some smaller guild - but thats life... we also dont want tons 4.1 claw gankers near our gather spot and hidouts either.

      If you are in a smaller guild/Alliance - my advise would to wait a bit and in a few days, once the final hidout locations of the bigger guilds are set and try to choose a "saver" hidout spot. Also try to talk with your future neighbours about a non agression treaty to make it less risky to place a hideout.

    • I like this idea we are a very small guild just fam and friends probably 2 to 6 of us online at a given time... so to have a place in the BZ would be great ...

      I can never leave my guild I have made.. we put a lot of time in to it but we would love to ally with another .... unfortunately its also hard to trust anyone in this game we have had our things stolen, buildings destroyed, and this made some of my family, friends leave the game... I can say this however, if you choose us as a ally we will be more then happy to defend it... what we lack in numbers we make up for in dependability and presence...

      ITS IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ESTABLISH A HIDEOUT WITH SMALL GROUP/SOLO/SMALL GUILD, ISNT IT?
    • Oh, we finally managed it as small guild..

      Placing was easy, then we went to defence..

      70 man raid of people that was bored showed..

      But we had paid a mega Alliance, that rolled over the 70 ...

      So we have a hideout now, unfortunately our gatherer have to deliver 25 mio silver per week or they take their avalonian demolition hammer and destroy it..

      But heh, small guilds can have a hideout in the bz..and what's 25 mio per week if u can have a hideout..

      Hype ..it is still a small guild patch..u can live there..

      On the other hand they offer us to join them, then it is just 5 million and once a day forced cvc..
    • U will get targeteed by the guilds controlling the cluster u build it at for sure, specially if u pretend to get income from it.

      Maybe and only maybe u could manage to hold it if u made it totally free for everyone but then u would go in expenses just to keep it working.

      I also thought about doing this but i just realized it has very small chances of going well.

      Yeah, I fully intend to have to pay silver to protect the hideout. But with enough trade and solo players/guilds using the hideout should be doable with the profit from the crafting stations, which would match the royals and not be to high.
      Maybe u r not aware of how aggressivelly guilds r marking and defending their territories now. I doubt u find a guild that will let u be in their land to get a profit even if u pay for it. And even if u do, the cluster can easily change of owner daily and i see it impossible to have the same luck with every guild u attempt to talk.

      A good offer u could do to the cluster´s owner besides a daily silver amount could be the possibility to use the entire hide out´s stations for free.
    • Hi,

      Sorry for the delay had to see whether the hideout would be safe. Morgana's Freehouse has been set up in Glacierfall Cross, situated right next to Morgana's rest. Right across from a fame dungeon and connected to two T8 maps one x T7Map.

      Everyone is welcome to come in and make the hideout their home, although due to distance from royal cities its taking me longer than expected to build up everything.
