The Market Wards being unsearchable at the moment is a big cause of this. You saw crazy prices like this a lot in MapleStory because it had a thing called the "Free Market", and anyone selling crap in the first 2 or 3 rooms was usually ridiculously overpriced.

I don't think he was trying to sell it. If you mean it was in his bazaar for 1 mil, he's showing it off, not trying to sell it. It's how people in FFXI show off stuff, or also it's a way to make sure you don't accidentally drop it (can't drop something that's on sale).

What? So you mean those people from FFXI didn't actually want 99,999,999 gil for their Red Rose?

It's a test run for being greedy at release?

I put something in my bazaar for 70K because I didn't have room in my inv. and I didn't actually want it to sell.

That said if you have gotten any crafting done you will realize pretty quick that a lot of the mats are stupid expensive so it may also be that 1 Mill is a bit steep but not wholly unreasonable price if they had to pay thousands for each component... plus eating fails etc.

they may also just want people to make an offer

When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.

^ this also. I was going to bazaar some dagger handles I crafted yesterday but couldn't really decide on a price because I have no frame of reference yet, so I just NPC'd them. This early in the game it's pretty much a toss up between trying to figure a market value and epeening.
