I really dislike that.. should jsut be a world wide market I dont wanna ahve to travel form city to city for items I need jsut seems like they overcomplecated this again when they should have just put a AH.
Don't you understand? Your retainer DOES sell in all three cities at the same time. The point is just, to put those things on sale you have to put it in one city, paying the local taxes.
I guess I misunderstood. So let me get this straight.. Reatiners will sell our things in 1 city depending on that citys taxes on said item it would be best to move retainer befor selling it. Now what got me confused.. We sell in different citys if we want to save money BUT when I wanna buy something everything everyone sells will be on the same market places regardless of city.?
Yes, that's the claim. I forgot to check to see if it is working that way, which is why I can't confirm it.
i'm a little dissapointed they decided to keep retainers for selling purposes, but well see how this plays out this time. If i ever get the message "market wards are full" making it impossible for me to sell things like in 1.0 before i won't be a very happy camper.
For those that don't know, for some reason beyond my comprehension you were allowed to put 2 retainers up at the same time causing people to not even be able to sell in ul'dah. This forced people to use the other cities wards which unfortunatley meant if you wanted to sell something, chances were that you had to wait awhile.
Regardless of the name, as long as retainers have all the functions you would think an AH should have, i'll be happy.

There are no ward zones.
Once you hire a retainer for free, you summon a retainer with a summoning bell and you use NPC menus in the appropriate city to assign them to a city. There is no zone with a retainer army to wander through. The setup is not an "Auction House" but it has most or all of the functionality on the buyer's side that some people assume everyone packages into the "Auction House" term. The seller side doesn't have the same functionality that some people assume everyone packages into the "Auction House" term because the retainers double as your account bank. You get a menu option when you summon to choose between moving items, moving gil, selling from your inventory, or selling from your retainer's inventory. You can also get more than one retainer.
