I spent 45 minutes today searching through each retainer...and couldn't find one...I'm in Gridania by the way. I noticed the NPC was selling 2nd tier bows but not lances...I'm only rank 10 but I'm definitely noticing the misses are stacking up now...Any suggestions, tips?

As far as it was in Beta you could get higher tier lances from crafting through carpentry/blacksmithy. I would suggest looking through the recipes and take up a craft and make them, or just wait until some crafters start putting them up.

Honestly your beginning lance should last for a little while though, should be good till about ~10 or so.

Start woodworking.

You'll have to wait until someone has crafted it up... and sold/given one to all of their friends/LS mates. Since the crafts are so dependent on each other and release was yesterday-ish - you'll probably have to wait a few days.

Just FYI gladiator and conjurer weapons are usually the first to show up. They seem to be easier to make/less ingredients from other crafts.

The hard part about it, from what I remember was the next weapons need either Linseed Oil(Bronze spear), or Fish glue(Harpoon). The rest was pretty simple..

Yup I've already seen quite a few maple wands, bought the 1st one I saw just to find another bazaar with it for half the price...my impatience failed me...

Someone mentioned that some of the NPC vendors now have more than just the level1 weapons...haven't noticed that myself though...

Some weapons are buyable if you shop around the city your guilds is in (gridania for lancer) in uldah I found lv 14 and 44 glad weapons and lv 19 pug weapon. The npcs prices are very expensive, but they are there if you really need it.

harpoon blade is also 10+ goldsmithing and the parts are expensive so I know I wouldn't be trying it till I was at least 13 or so.

I really wish they would put up a "board" in the wards that lets you search everything that's for sale...kind of like EQ2 did...I mean, it's absolutely crazy to think SE intends us to waste so much time manually searching for what we need...

I agree. I dont know what was so wrong about having an auction house... but it's SE's game, if they wanna be different, then let them. But, with that being said, there is no way at all that they could possibly continue it the way it is without some way to find what your looking for more easily
