Although I do not play 14, this ward is sounding like what a friend of mine experienced in everquest and a zone full of bazaars and the game had a search system where you put in the item you were looking for and a line of sorts would appear that you followed that took you to the person that had the item for sale. Sounds like you folks are missing the search/line to follow part.
If SE did this then no one would be ******* The only reason that we are mad about the whole economy at the moment is the items we need, we know are out there and people have em, but in order to get him we have to spend 2-4 hours going through each bazaar to try and find the item. All SE has to do is implement a simple Search function in the Market ward and all would be fine.
Like all you do is type in a Keyword and all the retainers containing an item with the keyword/words in it will light up to be a special color. ITS THAT Simple and it will solve all this crap.
Unfortuantly SE has stated they have no plans to implement a AH system and dont plan on it, and I think they are going to stick to there guns on this one however they said they are currently working on a search function for the Market Ward area.
