Sorry in advance for a possibly very stupid question.

I have looked up the instructions on how to use the search feature, I have run around Gridania (a lot) talking to every NPC I can find, I've looked through my menus quite a bit, but for the life of me, I cannot seem to find the search feature to search for items. I know I'm missing something very simple and obvious and am going to feel really dumb when someone tells me what it is, but I can't figure it out. ;_;

(I'm trying to upgrade my weapons... still using rank 1 stuff and I can't find anymore ;_; )

Thank you, for your help.

idk if their is a worldwide search but as you enter the market wards you get the option to check. i find it confusing cause i still have a hard time finding what i want , it seems all jumbled when it comes to armors ect and when i do see what i want theres usualy 0

Your problem (and every other new player) is the Wards are not marked on the map.

The Wards are right next to the Aetheryte in Gridania. Marked "Lotus Gardens".

As you enter you will have the option to open the search.

If the items you want to buy aren't available to buy, I suggest you run to Ul'dah. It's the most populated city on every server and you should find that there is a much better selection of good to choose from. It is a long hike from Gridania though. I started in Gridania, but I spend around 95% of my time In Ul'dah or the surrounding area of Thanalan. I only ever go back to Grdania to visit the archer/leatherworker/lancer guilds.

This is spot on. If you start in Limsa Lominsa or Gridania, know that Ul'dah is the central trading hub. From Gridania, stick to the main road (south) and you will be there in about 20 minutes. Watch out for Antlings.

From Limsa, get on the Ferry in town. You will see Ul'dah on the map after the boat ride.

i know that ul'dah is better to start in for its various guilds and such, but i wonder if deep down people really picked it because it looks like aht'urghan whitegate.
