Project Gorgon introduces player vendor stalls

There are plenty of ways to sell items to other players in Project Gorgon already, but there are some situations not covered by the current option. Suppose you have a bunch of crafted goods that you want to sell off in short order: You want high visibility to get people’s attention but short availability to encourage impulse buys. In other words, you want the new vendor stalls that are being introduced to the game, rentable NPC vendors that allow for mass sales for a limited time.

Vendors can be rented by players a day at a time, with each day costing more money if requested within 30 days of a previous rental. Players can customize decorations and names for the stall, limit specific items to only being visible to certain players, and even receive notes and feedback from others browsing the stalls. It’s an elaborate system that allows for a short-term sale for mercantile players while giving players the feel of an in-game flea market for those who like to hunt for deals and curios.

Always appreciated and enjoyed them in old MUDs. Nice to see someone else trying to do it in an mmorpg. I know ESO did it but it sounds like it was done pretty half assed.

This reminds me of ffxi where you could place items in your on player inventory to sell… Was awesome!!

Also out was said they were doing it because they didn’t want high end gear to be sold quicker than it could be gained by playing the needed game parts. Which is just bullshit…. You can still buy anything you want whenever you want is just a pita to get it is all and is somewhat discouraging…

1.  The market stalls are spread out all over the damned game, a few in each different town or city.
2.  There is no way to look for specific items across the entire collection of markets, so you have to visit each individually.
3.  The ESO tools for interacting with the market are primitive at best.  There are addons that help, but they should not be needed in a AAA feature of this importance.
4.  In order to sell in these markets, you MUST belong to the guild that is hosting the market.  You may belong to a maximum of four guilds at one time.
5.  The location of a guild’s market is not necessarily permanent and may change from time to time as the locations are auctioned off periodically.

All in all, the ESO ‘AH’ system just sucks.  My opinion only, and some of my info may be out of date.  But I certainly did not like it, at all.
