Player Security

What is Item Lock and what is it used for?

http://co.91.com/guide/guides/itemlock.shtml

Item lock was also released in Patch 5022 as a security feature to protect player’s equipment in the event that their characters are hacked or stolen. By clicking on the Item Lock button, a box appears and any piece of equipment that you want protect goes into the item slot above the lock button. After the item appears in the slot, press the lock button and your item shall be locked and the same process on locked equipment, unlocks them.

Locked equipment does not drop whether you are red named or black named and there is no limit to the amount of gear that you can lock.

Tips for Item Lock:
  • Lock your most valuable piece of equipment unless you plan on selling it soon.

  • In the event you want to trade or sell a locked piece of equipment, it is faster to add the person you want to trade to as a Trade partner (see below for information) rather than unlocking the piece of equipment.

  • Remember that you can not sell your highest potency item of your class. You can trade it to a trade partner who is a merchant account to sell it if you wish but remember that the merchant account does not have the same security features on the regular accounts.

  • If you locked a piece of equipment, you will be unable to trade or sell the piece of equipment in a market stall. Unlock the item if you plan on doing this in the future.


What are Trade Partners?

The introduction of trade partners also came in with patch 5022 which as you can tell now was a very important patch. The Trade partner feature allows you to select fellow players that you could trade freely with, without the item lock restriction. To add a trade partner, go to the “Friends” button and select the “Partner” option. From there click the “+Trade Partner” option and click on the person you want to add. It takes 3 days for a new trade partner to be added. Keep in mind you can only have 20 trade partners.

Tips for Trade Partners:
  • Add your extra characters as Trade partners so you can exchange any of your locked equipment you want shared between them.

  • Every time you log into the game, if you are waiting to add a new trade partner the game will have you revise and confirm that the person who is on your wait list. Make sure to check it to ensure that this IS the person you want added as a trade partner.
