    Exclamation Royal Sanguine Scam - exploit of Incorrect icon and ambiguous naming

    There are two problems with the Royal Sanguine set which scammers are using to their advantage.

    1. Unlike most vanities...these pieces do not include very critical info in the name such as: top, legs, or hat.

    Please rename the following:
    - The hat (crown/glasses) currently named "Sanguine Royalty" to "Sanguine Royalty Hat"
    - The top currently also named "Sanguine Royalty" to "Sanguine Royalty Top"
    - The legs currently named "Royal Sanguine" to "Royal Sanguine Legs"

    2. The Royal Sanguine Legs icon displayed in the trade window is incorrect. The icon displays all 3 pieces of clothing: a hat, a top, and a bottom. A buyer cannot tell from the icon which piece they are about to buy. This is what the icon looks like now:
    Name:  royal-legs-pic.jpg
Views: 698
Size:  89.6 KB

    Please replace the icon with:
    Name:  orange-legs-icon-clipped.png
Views: 414
Size:  5.0 KB

    With the ambiguity in the naming and the incorrect icon being displayed, lots of people are being scammed. The scammer negotiates with the buyer to sell a more expensive piece and sells them a lesser expensive item. Please make these changes to help protect your players.

    Yes always be cautious with any trade....but especially with Royals. Until this is fixed it is best to only buy royals from the Auction House or from someone you trust.

    good find i was actually wondering about when someone will notice that its a shame that people take advantage of other people and this should stop but just to put it out there the name of the hat is "sanguine royalty" top "sanguine royal" and leggings "royal sanguine" i know they still would be confusing to some folks but you gotta be careful when trading you don't have a choice

    Thanks hellprince. It is "Sanguine Royalty" for both top and crown not "Sanguine Royal" like I wrote down originally. Corrected. Thanks!

    Next month marks 1 year since the Royalty Sanguine set came out. I really hope the names get fixed in time for DL's 2nd birthday.

    Well last anniversary event...iirc..all level 35 bosses had the chance to drop them. So as long as your toon was level 35 or 36....bosses in all missions had a chance to drop it.

    STS Please fix....scammers are continuing to take advantage of the naming. You could easily stop this type of scam by adding "top" "legs" and "hat" to the names.
