Heya guys, so I've gotten my professions high enough to start crafting some weapons and armour for myself.

I've hit a bit of a brick wall, though, there are items I need from other professions.

I've checked what people are selling, and i've been to the market place and checked all of the retainers there, but I haven't found what I am after.

How do you guys do it? Is there a trick to finding the items that you need amongst the hundreds of people / retainers selling general junk?

Thanks.

No trick really. You can try to use shouts for the items you need and someone might be selling. Or you could join a Linkshell and trade amongst the members. No search option (yet?) so there is no easy way to go about it.

Right now? Not really a trick, just time consuming. It doesn't hurt to ask around either, a couple shout outs should be fine as long as you don't spam it.

Within the next few weeks lets hope they organize the Market Wards. Other than that you might want to consider leveling up the other crafts that you need. A lot of the items you need can be made at fairly low levels. Also remember that a lot of items can be purchased from NPCs.

My trick is going to the guild of the profession that makes the item and making my offer in say or working with LS buddies.

Based on my experience on Gysahl, the top two spots for buying items are the stairs in front of Ruby Exchange Avenue and the repair NPC in front of Tavern in Ul'dah. Lots of hardcore crafters gather there to sell their goods (at a high price though).

Also I buy from players directly instead of retainers. Reason being it's much easier to spot what profession and how high rank a crafter is. I never check naked crafters, they are bound to sell very low rank items. I check Cotton/Canvas Crafters Clothes wearing people who also wear fancy tools, which are very easy to spot because they stand out.
