Bazaar ManagerFollow

#1 Dec 06 2010 at 9:25 AM Rating: Good
So, I've tried both FFXIVpro and Yellow Gremlin's Bazaar Managers, and am curious to know which is preferred by the community.

Personally, I think YG has done a great job on theirs and I've been using it in tandem with their WinPcap-based "Updater" so that their site updates automatically for changes I make to my retainer. It just needs the Network Effect to kick in at this point.

What're others doing?

I use YG for searching Bazaars, crafting recipes, everything.

I'm waiting for a search feature for the wards. I refuse to use a third party website to find in-game items. Most of the time the items listed on yg are gone by the time I get there anyway.

Funny part about YG's site. I havent signed up for the site and barely use it, being a lot of the info is incorrect. I use it as a guide, nothing more... heres the kicker. They have my retainer listed on there selling the item i am. They either have tons of resources and people to go around and check every single retainer ( i applaud you if thats the case ) of they are getting the info from SE somehow. Not sure.

This could be the case of things selling out and not updated before you get to the retainer. If someone didn't sign up for the site, they wont update the info thats there.

My theory on this is that someone using YG's "Updater" accessed your retainer. When that happened, they captured the data between server and client and it posts to their site.

i agree its hard to find things lately using YG, it is more "hit and miss".

I am very happy that there is a YG utility. Last night, I was looking for some leather boots and went to the tanners section and couldn't find the ones I want. I pulled up YG and found someone selling the exact same boots, but in the Battlecraft area. Even knowing the retainer's name, it took me a good 10 minutes to search the room to find them.

It's not a perfect system, but it works for me ok.

YG has a n updater that sends infor to thier database. I'm honestly afraid of using it even though I have the little CE key fob to protect my account.
