The black market is run by a shady person (of course!). Once a day he/she offers an item not found easily, like warlock items, battlefield items, and premium shop items. He does not take silver or gold as currency, instead he takes a large amount of vermillion. Hundreds of it, the item he is selling is hard to come by afterall. What he does with all that vermillion is unknown.
Once a day means only one item can be bought everyday. There will be several items to chose from but only one can be chosen. If you try to return to the shop after a purchase, he will simply be gone, nowhere to be found. Shady people selling strange items can't just stand around.
A good place for his "shop" could be under the trading tab.
I am thinking the amount of vermillion needed to purchase an item should be substantial. Around 400, to both make it a challenge to get such a rare item and to deter a flood such rare items.
Warlock items along the lines of eggs, pills, deviance enchancers, not the wild symurghs and such unless they would be sold near the cap since they were costing more during events selling warlock items. Also sold will be battlefield items like snake eyes and spirit in a jar.
For premium items the usual potions, scrolls, food, and other cheaper items.
The main purpose of this? To be able to get warlock item when the event isnt going and to have an alternate way to get premium items. Also offering a way for players who can not get to the battlefield portal a way to get the special items needed for top level buildings.
Vermillion will become more valuable. Though this could be bad and good depending on if you are buying or selling it. Gold to silver/ gold to vermillion price will shift. This could also be bad or good.
The rare items being sold may become too common. The shady person should only appear once a week or once every other day if this is a concern.
So...ideas? I'm pretty excited to buy weird magical items from a sketchy stranger!
