Global Auction House
This will probably get quite a lot of hate. But we already have a "poor mans" global auction house via shard transfer shields + Atlantic. I am on the server with the second largest market & most of the time I cannot find what I want to buy. Even simple bulk items are hard to find. If I really want something I have to spam general chat day & night for the one person who has not already transferred it to Atlantic. I constantly hear all prices compared to what it brings on Atlantic, & I am transferring my 50 SDI invasion books to Atlantic, yadda yadda yadda. Just move with the times & dump the individual shard search & make a full blown global auction house where everyone can buy & sell items from any shard without having to actually transfer to another shard. Make use of that antiquated mail system we used to have over a decade ago to deliver the goods we buy off of it (a lot of MMO's use an in-game mail system for purchases from auction house).The economy & markets are already ruined and permanently changed because of the shard transfer shields. So why not take the current warped state of the markets, get control of it, & turn it into something useful?
