WildStar shuts down the auction house before the free-to-play switch

WildStar will be free-to-play in a hot minute, and that means that certain things have to change, like several of the auction house mechanics. With gear seeing stat changes and auction house access itself being reworked, it’s a system that needs to be addressed. So for the time being, the developers have shut down the auction house and the commodities exchange, with both systems coming back online with the launch of free-to-play on September 29th.

Players will be unable to interact with the two interfaces in any way while the services are offline, and any items that were listed for sale at the time of the shutdown will be mailed back once the auctions expire. It’s mostly a way of making sure that everything is lined up properly before the business model conversion takes place; you can double-check the details on the official posting.

Heh. From everything I’ve heard, Wildstars story structure isn’t anything like FF14. They aren’t trying to write deep characters and plot lines, at least not outside the big Drusera stuff and some other quests towards end game.

That’s the one. Got a beta invite so I figured I’d give it one more chance.
Didn’t like what I played. You can tell they’re trying to crib FFXIV’s progression style story wise while injecting their own little Wild Star flavor, but they’re not remotely up to the task in terms of their ability to write characters or dialogue.

I have a feeling one of the reasons behind this besides what is stated is preventing profiteering at the expense of uninformed players.

heliaxb I’VE tried all the classes and get bored around level 12 with all of them. The only interesting class in the game was the Esper.
