We're Missing One WardFollow

We need one ward to be soley for repairs. obvious for the most part, if you don't want your character to stand around all day waiting for a repair, that you should use your retainer... or a second retainer to get your gear repaired. A ward dedicated to repairs would be just as valuable as making the other wards for specific items.

I concur


Hard to believe that development didn't consider this idea and who knows why they left it out.

Yes, this would be nice. Getting repairs usually requires shouting nowadays, since everyone and his mother has a bazaar icon and a crafter never knows if there is an item needing repair or just a bunch of marmot meat.

Really, when you have an item up for repair it should be a separate icon, only visible to people with the required level of the appropriate craft. They could do so much with the icons, like highlighting the bazaar icon of someone that is selling something you are buying, or vice versa. But all this would be way too helpful and pain-reducing so it's very unlikely to happen.

Very good idea, rated up.

can't hurt, but in theory standing in the right craft's ward should get someone's attention.

I also think a ward just for crystals/shards would be handy. At the moment they are supposed to be with the tools for DoH but as it is one of the bottom few wards it tends to get crowded with a lot of other stuff and they are so in demand right now

I agree, and it's also not even very clear that that ward is meant for crystals. It's mentioned last in the list and just says "crystals" along with all the other crap. I actually gave up hitting the wards for shards, because I realized I can farm shards faster than I can buy them in the market wards..Literally. And free instead of $$$$. Much rather spend 2 hours farming 999 shards than spend 2 hours searching the wards to pay 300k+ for 999 shards. =x

And I'm pretty sure SE noted they are adding an icon to know when a player is seeking for repairs.


I wouldn't be sure that SE noted or thought anything given the current state the game's in. What i am sure of though is that SE wanted us in the Market Wards buying and selling. The prices for NPC repairs seem to indicate they want us to utilize the DoH group... and as all the buying and selling is done in the Wards (or supposed to be) it would make sense to have a common, centralized point to drop your retainer off and come back to a full set of repaired items.

I sometimes on the fly will drop by the Guild location for any particular piece i need repaired... but i'm only going to shout once, maybe twice - wait a few minutes and then move on. i've got beasties to kill! :)
