So ladies and gents it's become apparent that about 40% of the threads on here are complaints about MW and QQ's for an AH. Whatever your opinion on the matter its looking like MW is here to stay for the forseeable future. So instead of negative feedback and begging for an ah let's put some positive suggestion as to how to improve the system. Here is what I have so far:
A ward for crystal sellers
A ward for repairs
So if my MRD gear was all humped I could dump it on a retainer and leave it in the ward, come back the next day hoping it was repaired (if you have mats you could even offer required mat in trade for repair)
Or if like me you have a majority of crafts lvld you could pop in there with a bag of mats and make some Gil! Makes getting repairs a tad easier.
Although the search function is on the horizon I still think there should be a higher penalty for people selling in the incorrect ward. Spnding 2 hours in LL today in battleward and at least 60% had no weapons in. Perhaps if a retainer does not have the correct items in for a relative ward, be it from poor set up or selling what was there they are either moved auto to a ward that is representative of the majority of the items they have in stock or are just booted out of that ward within a certain time.
In the future when a mailbox is available I'd like to receive mail from my retainer. A letter from your retainer would not only help you keep track of what had sold but also add a bit more emmersion. E.g. "Hey there Castiel, just thought I'd drop you a note to inform you that the bronze doming hammer you gave me has sold (maybe a player name who bought it here) for 30,000! I'll keep the Gil here with me until you get here. See you soon. Armittie"
Maybe have 10-20 generic messages to mix it up some. Or go the xi route with companions where their responses to you differ depending on your relationship with them.
Any more feel free to add. Hopefully a positive input to the current system will spark the imagination of the dev's.
