I am glad to hear about the multiplayer news and very happy to see the direction it is going!
Regarding the loot trading:
What will the trade system be like?
… Players in a party will also be able to gift items to each other, as long as the item dropped after both players joined the party.
I was wondering if it would be possible to create a small “permanent party” or a small “guild” so that we could trade items even if not everyone in that group is logged in and currently playing. Although, I would keep the requirement that only the items that dropped after the players join the “guild” can be shared (to prevent free trading).
My reason is that I would like to play with my friends from other timezones and share good loot that I get with them when I find it playing alone. Unfortunately, we can only play together so often because of life responsibilities and the timezone differences.
