Ok guys, now that the market wards have been named and somewhat organized, the system wont work unless we choose to use it. So below Im going to post the name of each ward and what it (should) contain. If I remember correctly before the patch, each city had its own market wards. Im not sure if that is concurrent today, so please do post on that matter if you can. Also as an overall notice to peeps who wish to be involved in each server's economy, use the stands. The stands are a great way to attract even a little attention to your business, people will appreciate how easy it is to find you and you may have repeated customers. Also, sometimes it helps to name your retainer something appropriate to what goods you sell as many already do. I.E-Oreandnugshop, is for selling ore, nuggets, possibly ingots, at the very least it attracts attention.
"This ward is primarily for those that wish to buy/sell completed weapons and arms. If you are seeking this, or are wishing to sell COMPLETED weapons and gain a 5% tax subcharge decrease on selling them, please do put your wares up here."
Note: This ward's tax decrease does not apply to magical arms such as those of the Conjurer and Thaumaturge. Those are implemented in the..
"This den is primarily intended to be used to sell and seek magical arms such as those used by the Conjurer and Thaumaturge, this includes both 1 handed and 2 handed arms. 5% subcharge decrease when selling completed wands and staves in this ward."
"This ward is used for selling and seeking tools to help improve your results when gather as a disciple of the land. Fishers, Botanists, and Miners would be wise to look here. And vendors wishing to sell to this very diligent group of people who spend their whole day running around in circles getting raw materials for our economy, should sell here."
Note: For fishers, this ward also includes the 5% subcharge decrease on bait and lures.
"This den is implemented for the selling and seeking of tools for the Disciples of the Hand. This includes Culinarians, Blacksmiths, Goldsmiths, Leatherworkers(Tanners), Carpenters, Weavers, Alchemists, and Armorers. So if you're looking to buy or sell pots and pans, hammers and needles. Please sell your wares here and search here if you are in need."
"As it may sound, this den/ward is used for selling and seeking dishes created by culinarians. So if you're seeking tasty food or wishing to sell your culinary masterpieces, please do apply here.
Note: the subcharge decrease only exists for the dishes, drink, soups, and stews, not the raw materials needed to create them. So once again you must create a "dish" to receive the discount.
"You guessed it, this den is used to sell things you'd probably find at a grocery store. Examples being grains, fruits, vegetables and meats. This is the place to go to sell and shop for the raw materials needed primarily by culinarians. This list also includes fish, spices, and seasonings."
Note: as I had said above, the surcharge discount only applies to Raw materials such as the ones listed, not completed dishes. Culinarians should sell completed dishes in the Kitcher's Den.
"Yup, this ward is for selling things you get off of monsters. Examples being bone, tooth & claw, wings, and feathers of the like. Strangely enough this is also the place you would go to sell and buy Armor. While that doesnt completely make much sense, thats where the surcharge discount exists."
"Chiwhatta? Yes its a cultured word, and basically means anything an alchemist can make can be sold or shopped for here. This includes potions, oils, elixirs, remedies, ethers, panaceas, dyes, toxins, reagents, and paint. If you're an alchemist and wish to get the potion economy going, be consistent with where you sell your wares, this will help make you profit and help the consumers (ME!) keep our potion/curative items full. Not to mention many recipes from other disciplines require alchemical products, keep this in mind!"
"I am IRON MAN, well not really but anywho, this ward is used for selling parts and pieces to armor that are often created by using a forge. These include Wire, Ingots, Nuggets, Plates, and Squares of each and every metal type. Pretty much if it says Metal in the name, you can get your tax discount here. Look here for when you need components to create parts for different recipes."
Note: among the ones already mentioned above, you can sell clasps and buckles here as well.
Now that thats done, all theres left to do is for people to use the information and see if we can organize the economy across each server. This is to at least make trade a little more bearable until SE creates more searchable options or an AH mechanic.
There is the info! If people use the system, and sell their wares in the appropriate wards, people will be able to know who and where to come to for their needs. This will result in profit for everyone and less frustration with crafting and such.
"Dear SE, I did this to help, please make it so you can access facilities while in the wards, tyvm XOXO Asiri"
If anyone has anything to update to this post, please do, as this is just from going through each individual ward and testing what items receive the discount. This is from information I have recalled and observed while in game. Thanks everyone for reading if you did, hope this helps.
