I gotta say tho this isn't quite an AH it has brought a boatload of organization to things. I've made several hundred thousand already off stuff I had been carrying for days wishing it would crawl in a hole somewhere. Also, I've been easily finding the things I need without relying on an external site to show me the 3 people who are registered there who might have such an item. In short, I like it. Very Tolerable. Even for the first time ever for me, someone saw me in a ward making items and requested an item from that ward that I could make them.

Nope. Too busy sifting through all the threads that talk about the same exact things.

You should maybe stop clicking them then.

current problem is getting people to actually follow what should be sold where. Went to the Battlecraft ward, first bazaar random mob drops, second, same thing, third same thing lol.

I'm hoping this is just a result of it being new, and these people already had their bazaar's set up, so didn't really have to worry about the extra tax, and within a few weeks we'll see a lot more organization. Is it a realistic market system, of course not, is it better than what we had, yes.

Anything short of a full on AH is unacceptable...

WTH were they thinkin? I have yet to, and won't, click on player bazaars...I haven't got time for that. The UI isn't acceptable either but I can work around that, I can't work around the lack of a decent AH...This game shoulda been called Evercraft and you want me to craft and sell stuff using the retainer system? really? If it only took one click to look at someone's wares it'd be better...but no...it's always way too many clicks to do anything in this game. C'mon SE, get you **** in gear and fix this crap.

Just make an AH/mail system and get it over with...pfft
Oh wait...you'd have to buy hundreds of additional servers...
oh yeah, what was I thinkin *slaps forehead*

If they hadn't decided to make a super complex player driven economy where synths all rely on supply chains, they might be able to get away with the system they have. If mobs dropped armor, or everything you needed you could get from quest rewards or from simple synths of stuff you got while out fighting, however that isn't the case, and frankly I don't want it to be the case.

Yeah I noticed that some of the retainers seemed to still be there from before the patch. I think they only renamed them because i was still next to mine. So it'll likely take a full day to get all the way sorted. I dunno what all wards are like but the spellcraft one I am in only has 9 people. Much easier to go through.

Personally i think the new system is even worse than the old one.
I have several different things I want to sell, including gear, srystals,
and the occasional repair request. And it's constantly changing. Now tell
me where I should set up my retainer?

A bit better for buyers, horrible for (most) normal sellers.

(Edit: Not to mention I am unable to sell my weapons in fighters ward
since fighters ward is full; unable to set up a new retainer).
