maybe instead of the type of AH that FFXI has (IDK if this idea exists yet or not), but have the type of AH so you can see who is selling what item so you can choose who to buy from. This would allow us to bypass the RMT? It's a barebones idea, and I don't know if it would work or how to even get it to work.

That is the current system... :/ You just have to walk to them in the ward to pick who to buy it from.

They have put a lot of time into the ward system already. I doubt an AH will come at all. It was actually fairly easy to find stuff before using yg. Now its even easier.

Okay let me try to elaborate. Have a central location, instead of ward hopping. Have a counter, instead of moving from retainer to retainer. SOmeone else said something like "Amazon.com" List the people who are selling the item. That way it's not too time consuming. FFXI style, but no blind bidding. Am I making sense?

AH is simply not happening now. With the next 6 search functions and pricing and buying and selling set ups and other things the retainers can do it is not needed. Retainers probably will play a role in Companies too. Depending on the path SE takes, the AH could be a dying concept from the 2000s and this hybrid system will probably be perfected and become a more perfect system in which other games will emulate. Because seriously, FFXI's AH had serious issues with not being able to connect to mules, bazaar's and the fact that lots of items which could not be AH and partial item stacks could not be put up at all.

This way with AH level search and such will ultimately be a better system.

Doesn't the search system just put into place do exactly that? Show you who's selling the item you're looking for? Sure, it only works if the item's in the correct ward and you have to actually go to the retainer, but it's the same idea.

Edit: And yay, post of evil!

I don't know I'd say that an AH will never happen. If the rest of their ideas to regain customers don't work, they may try it before pulling the plug.
