Acquisition Sale & Lots up for purchase!

AUCTION FLOW

To keep matters fair and streamline we have chosen to go through auction-format for our Acquisition Sales. We utilize a form of Silent-Auctions to cut down on scroll and to ensure an enjoyable shopping experience for all of our clients.

There will be 3 bidding rounds per lot. All interested parties should whisper the auctioneer privately their maximum bid for each round. Once all bids have been collected after each round, the auctioneer will state the highest bid in /yell. The process continues through the following rounds until the end of the 3rd round. Each round will last up to 5 IRL minutes at most.

At the end of the 3rd round, the highest bidder will win the item. In the case of a tie or bidding is too-close to call margin, a 4th round may be called at auctioneer’s discretion.

Each individual may win only one item but may participate in bids for all items present should they choose.

No OOC gil transactions, however we welcome and are thankful for any tips as it helps us fund future auctions.

  • Any questions concerning the acquisitions please see C’sien Zoth or Rheya Tahvi.

  • All acquisitions are on a Silent-Auction format, please read our auction-flow above.

  • Clients may only purchase one unique acquisition per month.

  • Gil or Koban are the acceptable forms of currency. Note: No OOC currency will be taken. However, we are always welcoming of any sort of donation as it allows us to fund for the following month's sale.
