#1 Sep 27 2010 at 11:28 AM Rating: Decent
Does anyone know SE's stand on this or have any idea when either the Auction house or Mog house will be released. I dont want to vend like 95% of my items in my inventory b/c I know I can sell for 400-800% vendor price, and my bags are gettin pretty full.

I am nearly positive that I read somewhere that an auction house will be implemented. At what point, not sure, but I would imagine it should be near the top of their priority list.

Would you have a link confirming so or is it just rumors?

Dont NEED it, but they were nice to have. Yes, the retainers have storage space, but it's just not the same.

The proceeds from auction will need to go somewhere, you know.

Seems the same to me, if not more convenient now.

The topic title reads, "or maybe just a mog house." Now what use would that function be without an AH? Also, we have retainers. Why do we need the actual HOUSE for this? What difference is there between the moogle and the retainer?

Any suggestion of an AH is speculation right now. Most people agree that one will be added, but nothing official has even hinted of adding one. the only quote is was long the lines of "they are looking for a way to improve the retainer experiance" and that they were possibly adding a search.

Market Wards
We do not want the extent of a Disciple of the Hand/Land’s stay in Eorzea to be about simply putting the items he creates/gathers up for auction, which is why we have envisioned a bazaar-driven economy in which players can be creative in the methods they use to sell their wares. To better achieve this, we are currently working on ways to increase a players’ ease of using the markets by adding additional features, as well as tweaking existing ones.

Retainers
We are aware of the amount of time it took to buy items from retainers, and so we have been working diligently to make this system quicker and smoother by the time of release. Also, we are looking into ways to make it easier for players to buy and sell items through retainers.

From the sound of that, we wont be getting an AH if they stick to their guns.

I think they have underestimated the importance of being able to warp right to your mog house. One of the biggest annoyances in this game for me so far is the inability to access my retainer quickly. "Return" only bring you to your last Aetherite interaction point and "Teleport" costs way too much anima to utilize anywhere near the frequency of "Warp" in ffxi.

Also, even if you do Teleport, it doesn't drop you off right in front of the Market Wards. So unless I'm missing something, the majority of times I need to access anything on my retainer or collect gil, I have to do a lot of time consuming runngin around.

I also doesn't help that there's like 5 menus to do every task in this game. The number of menus involved in starting a synthesis is mind boggling.... similarly with placing items for sale on my retainer.

Why not let us summon retainers anywhere? Now that would be conveneient, but not game breaking.

These are the only thing I could find recently about anything that had to do with changing the markets.

Also you might want to look into this site: http://www.ffxivorigin.com/marketplace/
It's the start of a searchable marketplace offline from the game.
Needs more people, but it might end up looking like this eventually: http://www.ffxiah.com/

I wonder how a search would work. would it give you the name of the retainer and the ward they are currently in? So you find a sword you want for a good price, then run around like a madman trying to find the retainer before someone else snatches up your sword. Then after you get your sword run back and search for more items.

Or maybe it will just tell you the numer of a certain items that are currently for sale, but not the names of the retainers they are on. So then it becomes a wild goose hunt.

Or maybe they just let you search and buy right from the seach counter.... which is basically an AH. I'm guessing it won't be like this though.

One thing I do really like is the "seeking" option so that you can purchase items while you are not at your computer. I found this to be a pretty **** slick feature to be quite honest.

I definitely prefer my retainer to a Moogle for storing my items. She's much more interesting to look at. Just wish I could figure out where these "bells" are so I can summon her, instead of having to go to the crappy market wards.

I know in Gridania there's a bell in the adventurer's guild and one in the market area (where all the craft vendors are). Very convenient for when I'm crafting.

The only thing that sucks about retainers is that if you summon them in the market ward and leave them there, you can't summon them at a bell. You have to walk back to the market ward to use them. Granted, that's not much different than having to run to your MH.

I have seen hints of this "bazaar" like ideal possibly working. I noticed in Gridania on Rabanastre, crafters like to crowd around all the craft vendors. It's very easy to shout and ask for a crafter to make you an item if you need it. I've even see people there looking to buy certain items like shields. I think this is sort of what SE wants, which is odd, because it's not occurring in the market ward.

I have a feeling that we are under-utilizing the "seeking" option on our retianers. Once the cash flow begins to ocurr and most retianers are toting some decent gil on them, the seeking options might just be the trigger that makes this system work 10x better.

current problem with seeking is that you can only seek for as much as your retainer is holding. In order to seek 100 wind shards, I have to fork over 100 to my retainer for a time.

There's a spot near the galka in limsa in the adventurer's guild where you can summon.

Main reason I would want the mog house is storage reasons.

It does if you're teleporting to Uldah :-).

They hammered the nail in the mog house coffin in a cutscene early in FFXIV: "People are lucky to even see a mog once in their life"

It does not have to be an exact "Mog House" just using that as a reference to FFXI housing unit. I would just like a personal space to call my own that I can use to store items.
