Gauging interest in tattoo leveling (in Services)


QBOddBird October 15 2010 9:50 PM EDT

I've decided to save money for the rest of my NCB and simply get a good character going until I do another one. Since I'm doing this, I figured I'd gauge interest from the community in leveling their tattoos.

I'm currently at a 4M MTL, so they'd probably be semi-small tats for a while....but that doesn't mean there isn't anyone out there who would like their tat leveled up for a while. I have my own at 3.7M to trade over while I do so. No clue what is appropriate to charge for such a service, honestly.

So, is anyone interested?

I thought that might be the response I would get.

4.1M MTL now, though! Maybe someone will be interested when that raises a bit more.

My tattoo is currently in the 9m range... otherwise, I'd do it.

Aye! :D My very first tattoo leveling job!

hmmm... think this is better then forging?

@lostling: As soon as the low level tat market is saturated (which it is all the time): No. ;)

I get EXP, and I get money.

If forging, I only get money.

How is it not better? :P

If there would be huge interest in non-N*B tattoo leveling, I'd agree - whilst you wouldn't have an own tat that you grow.. But the market for 'slow growing tat leveling' should be as slim as the 'low level' market.

But for NCB runs? You need to land high enough and have a few months wasted, where you don't grow a "sellable" tat.

Well - forging doesn't gain you much either. ;)

I'm not going to be growing the tat slowly. I'm confused. Could you explain better?

I think Seb didn't realize you were running a NCB.

I just think that tat leveling is only profitable over a certain MTL.

Prove me wrong and I switch. ;)

QBOddBird October 18 2010 9:36 AM EDT

M'kay :)

All I knows is this:

I can get normal rewards and grow my tattoo

or I can get normal rewards and grow someone else's and get paid for it

that's profit to me! XP

I'll be raising Tal/Mr. Owl's JKF by 20M NW from its starting NW of 11k, and have already received payment of 5M. :)

So yeah, I'm available for this again if anyone needs me. My MTL is now just under 4.4M.

QBOddBird October 28 2010 10:57 PM EDT

MTL is at 5M.
