hopefully fixing market wards crashes.

Maybe they find some minor crafting recipes that are abusable again.

I'm guessing they're going to restart the servers and try to lessen the load/lag that some people have been getting lately :-)

This, this is what I'm hoping it could be! Sucks to put up your retainer then hear a shout 10 minutes later: "Market Wards went down! Be sure to put your retainer back up!" and have to do it all again.

I strongly view this is it. Past two weeks lag has been getting worse and worse with stutter frames with each passing day.

Haven't noticed any lag but from looks like Selbina world just crashed.... saying Unable to connect to World Server. Tried fresh restart on it and nothing. Go figure get a day off from work (due to the snow were getting pounded with) and plan on grinding some crafts out..... oh well guess its time to do some homework :(

While it is probably something to do with the crashes people have been experiencing, wouldn't it be nice if they slipped a content update in there?

I know that I consider the lack of content an emergency.

I've been getting the "R0 but you can chat" crashes pretty frequently. It sucks.

This. Repeatedly. I, too, hope they slip a little something extra in to this maintenance. But, despite my hopes I can't imagine them releasing anything content related without some serious pre-release hype to go along with it. Especially as it would seem (rightfully so) that most people's major complaint with the game currently is content.

Although, if people are getting dc'd and whatnot, that's probably a bit more pressing.

I've been experiencing some of the issues mentioned here as well as reading about others, like people being unable to deposit or retrieve items with their retainers. I can't recall a scheduled maintenance taking place since the last patch, so the servers most definitely could use a good database cleaning and a restart, it seems.

If they've worked out a fix of some sort for the market ward crashes as well, that would really make my day.

Yeah I know right? Too bad we don't have an auction house with 30+ spaces to sell things in like every other MMO on the market. That would be terrible.

FFXI only has a 7 slot AH. However at least the bazaar space is equal to the inventory size. (If you have 80 inventory you can bazaar 80 items.)

10+10+10 slots on FFXIV? AND my repair requests take up 2 slots EACH? How am I suposed to sell the 50 different items I get after killing monsters for 15 minutes? And I have to split them up between two mule NPCs and my own bazaar, not to mention go to many different places to sell each item so it is searchable...oh and I have to somehow remember where everything is to be sold properly (not saying that last thing is hard, but really....?)

Do you seriously try to sell everything you come across to players?

No I don't.

And THAT answer I just gave to your question is why some things in game are near-impossible to find (or way overpriced).

It's not about whether I do or not though...it's about me being ABLE to if I WANT to.

Not having the option is unacceptable. Having the option and choosing not to is perfectly OK by me.

As far as how SE should prioritize any changes they make, yeah, it is about exactly that.

Principle isn't enough to fix or add something. It's gotta have practical uses too.

Of course being able to sell everything you get has a practical use. It is called the economy. Now I realie thier are just SOME THINGS that will not sell, or are quite litterally so comon and easy to get (or super cheap from an NPC) that it isn't worth selling...but I am talking about taking my Rank 22(23?) Botanist out and doing a few leves and maybe a bit of farming and coming back with logs/branches/fruit/etc... and actually feeling SATISFIED with what I get from the NPC for it, just because I know the pain in the @$$ it would be to actually sell such products and make a much higher amount of gil isn't worth my time.

I may have just confused myself with that very long sentence.

In other words...there sure as heck a practical use for a bazaar/market/AH system that allows you to sell what you have.

Look at it in this light. Say your a Crafter and you make weapons/armor whatever. what 10 items do you choose to sell? the 10 most profitable, what's left? some recipes that wont get made since its not worth thier time. increase the space they have and watch the crafters diversify...if a lowbie gets his newb gear from Person X at a good price and then ranks up and looks for new gear, hes gonna remember Person X... having that low, mid, and high level gear all at the same time in a decent quantity is beneficial for the crafting community and the consumers.

Oops, here we go with another derail about AH vs. Bazaars...

I'm going to keep on saying it;

AH for commodities only. Crystals, raw materials, reagents, Parts, etc.
Weapons, tools, armor, clothing: Retainer or personal bazaars only. (no restrictions on putting commodities in bazaars though)

There, now both systems can co-exist.

You're welcome.
