We would like to notify you of the current major issues as of Oct. 1, 2010.

[Current Issues]

- If an item name contains a "+ [number]" at the end (e.g. "+1," "+2," etc.), players are not able to equip the specified item through a macro command.

Currently, equipping items through macro commands works in the following manner:

Example 1) If you only possess the item "Dagger," triggering the macro command "/equip main Dagger" will equip the item "Dagger" on your character.

Example 2) If you only possess the item "Dagger +1," triggering the macro command "/equip main Dagger" will equip the item "Dagger +1" on your character.

Example 3) If you possess the items "Dagger" and "Dagger +1," triggering the macro command "/equip main Dagger" will randomly choose and equip the item "Dagger" or "Dagger +1" on your character.
 
Example 4) If you possess the item "Dagger +1" (or possess the items "Dagger" and "Dagger +1"), triggering the macro command "/equip main "Dagger +1" will not equip either of the items.

*If you input "Dagger +1" without the quotation marks, the system will recognize it as "Dagger."

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.

Thank God they are jumping on this major problem ahead of all those other minor things such as the market wards/AH, UI lag, and so on.

Yes, someone posted this yesterday. That thread seems to have disappeared though. At least, a quick glance over the last three pages didn't reveal it to me.

*shrugs

I was actually hoping that this was an updated version of that thread - with new information. Disappointing. Of course, that's not your fault, Wint. I'm just disappointed in general with SE and the lack of any sort of meaningful acknowledgment of the real issues.

we've already received news that change to market wards is coming p relatively soon so before you continue whining about it you should realize its slated for soon, probably same time as these more minor things...

UI lag I can agree with though, I hope they mentioned it somewhere

I'm honestly not convinced the market ward change they are doing is a fix. It is, though, a step (possibly a leap considering where they are starting) ahead of where it is now.

SE said last week sometime that they are changing the wards to put like retainers in the same areas. So, in theory, armor has a ward, weapons has a ward, crystals, or however they break it up. I dont remember if they said if there would be a search function though.

Well I was referring more to the *quit whining* part of his message - but thanks for the informational post anyway. I have heard rumors of them *naming* the wards, whatever they think that will accomplish.

If they do break it up, all it will do is make it harder for people to sell. They will either have to give us multiple retainers to stand on each floor (lag..), have our one retainer appear on all floors (lagggg....), or limit us to selling one type of item at a time(nooooooo!).

In the end, they will have to implement an AH - or change this system so many times it ends up functioning like one anyway.

I'm all for AH *easy mode*. Bring it on!

They said they would implement and AH at some point, I'm not really sure why they are waiting tho. Like I said before, I dont think they new "fix" will fix much, but I could be wrong. But they surely cant make things any worse than they are.

I can't really understand how SE , who previously said they wanted to prevent overcrowding in areas such as Jueno in FFXI, continues to push this ridiculous retainer/market system. Now we have to go into a small room with hundreds of toons crammed into a small space, waiting several seconds for them to even load on the screen. And then you have to tab through each of them, and for each of them navigate that laggy menu to open their bazaar, and then wait another couple of seconds for the bazaar to open. Now we not only have to deal with this, but also with more and more people being left logged in an AFK to display their bazaar in the cities/camps.

I really can't see how anyone can defend or even tolerate this system... Each time I've even bothered to go into a market ward, the situation seems to get even worse with toons basically stacked on top of eachother where you can even barely make out their names much less try to tab/click between them. It's actually getting quite comedic in a lot of ways...

I wouldn't have to worry about equipping a Dagger +1 if someone could craft a Bronze Spatha before endgame instead...
