You did read what I said, right?
However we don't really NEED one in the game to sell our stuff.
Of course not. ****, we have NPCs that we can sell our stuff too.
At this time most just avoid using them due to a lack of means to find what you want. In fact I believe they have already announced they intend on making specific wards for specific types of stuff such as one for armor, one for weapons, one for materals, and so on. There I think was mention of a search function too. In a way it will work similar to an auction house with the exception being you'll need to travel to that specific retainer to buy the item instead of just buying it from a single counter. And by the way, FFXI featured city-specific auction houses too. Some regions (Such as Kazham, Rabao, and Tavnazia.) were linked to certain cities. It wasn't just one huge auction house you could access from anywhere in the world.
We can't find it, because it's a *********** of people, not a nice list of items, which a search function will not remove. And while yes, the three starter city auction houses in FFXI were independent from each other, the main AH people used, bridged Whitegate, Jeuno, Tavnazia Safehold, and Nashmau.
People keep trying to make this bazaar system work, and quite frankly, the only way to do this, is to *not* have it be the main way to sell items.
Our beloved FFXI also had an item search function for bazaars. It was crap.
