    Absolutely... Now maybe the economy of Sosaria will have the much awaited overhaul that's been needed for a decade... People will open vendors again on their 7x7 in the jungle and actually be able to sell stuff and participate... Goodbye Luna, can't say I'll miss ya' one bit!

    So do you think this will lower the prices of Luna houses? Since now you can just search for what you like and one of the options is "Gate to vendor"

    Love my houses in the countryside, never wanted a place in Luna (well, in the beginning maybe).... Yea, finally the iron grip on our economy will be broken once and for all... Finally everyone will be able to participate without the few that had an overwhelming advantage... Goodbye Luna, don't let the door hit ya' in your big arsss...

    Depends on what is required to search and if there is a cost associated with the gate.

    Hopefully they disable people gating from fel or champ spawns.....

    Or if there is a central place you go to look the information up.

    its definitely interesting. good for the sellers. no more "deals" tho. the stuff on out of the way vendors for a chunk less than luna price will be snatched up and resold extremely quickly now.

    All an in game recall to/gate to vendor search does is eliminate vendor rental fees..if anything prices will spike because the poor guy that couldn't afford a luna vendor without making quick sales.. can afford vendors and can gauge what to charge based on the other vendors..not sure how this is "economy changing"

    Looks like they have delivered on everything they wanted to do in addition to requests from the playerbase, such as the robeless robe slot. I'm still shaking my head over that one, but hey, doesn't hurt me, and helps roleplayers.

    New griefer tactic: Vendor in the wilderness with a tempting item. Release or lure some monsters near the gate area. Watch the action from hiding inside the house.

    Regarding the new thing: The city that everyone thinks will be destroyed won't be, but that's actually a good thing. There are cons, surely, but the pros considerably outweigh them.

    Good for buyers, also! I anticipate a wider variety of goods for sale, most at reasonable prices... more folks heading for the countryside, as in days of old... I don't see any real downside to this! :)

    Pretty much what I was expecting we'd get. The whole economy is going to be shaken up like a snowglobe :D It's far too early to say where it'll all settle. Things might be cheaper, they might be all at Luna prices.. Luna probably won't go bust, but we can still cling to that hope. We really won't know until it's published.

    Town mages are going to be upset though - they've become millionaires selling blank runes for years and now this... It's going to get ugly if the mages revolt!

    I can't see how players can grief using monsters, or at least if they try there's a very simple solution; either the gate goes direct to the vendor, ie into a house, or you simply can't have a vendor in a private house, but either way the buyer arrives and then just hides inside the house.

    But I can see a way it can be extremely useful; Place book on auction house, called "Lovely Gardens And Museum." Player browses, thinks "Oooh, that sounds nice for a visit"... "Gate To Vendor"... Tourism!

    I just wonder how this will play out on Siege where the is no recalling, only gating with minimum magery skill. If not thoughtfully designed with Siege in mind, this could bypass the no-recall by placing vendors are key locations and using the vendor-search to gate to that location. Maybe make it so you can gate to the vendor, do your shopping while you are invisible / invulnerable and can't move or perform any other function, and then get gated back to your original location when your shopping is done.

    Luna was a boon due to Pure Human Laziness. And big time saver. I sell a CC for 15mil and you and a few others want to make a quick buck selling for 11 or 12 mil and new vendor searchs helps me track the sales. I can now corner the market buying all others going for cheeper. Someone that is a pure vendor hound can then mark up a few unique items if they are on the ball. In your Luna free world one vendor can be the soul sales of 25mil CC. The only bargins will be found on chat and an Incognito mage mage will make those CC purchases. Vendor gates = new CoC rules.

    One thing you market warriors never seem to grasp; if you buy the item at 12m, they've still sold the item at the price they wanted to sell it for. Right now, the vendor who didn't want to "corner any market" and just wanted to sell for a reasonable price and continue playing has difficulty doing so unless they have a Luna vendor. It also prevents people from exploring the world and finding any lovely homes just for pleasure if all the trade is in Luna too, a place where those who think the market is some sort of PvP can "corner the market" again anyway. So the suggested changes are a net positive for people who play for love not points; people will visit their homes, the goods will sell at whatever price they want, and they don't have to be involved with the Luna'tic mindset. And those who have one, well you can carry on just as before.

    This will be a nice change. what i dont understand tho is why people think that luna vendor rental prices make things more expensive. The vendor fee Isnt what makes things more expensive, its having it on a search that raises the price.
    You can get a luna vendor on atlantic for 100k to 2mil. (200k is average)
    unless nothing your selling is over 1million gold, the weekly fee really doesnt matter. Its the ease of the search that makes luna more expensive, Not the vendor fees.
    Prices will all be about the same now. Itll just be easier for the handful of people that use search sites on an hourly basis to buy up goods and sell them at their own shops for as much mark up as the daily fee allows for according to demand (how fast the item will sell)

    Im not against this tho. Im prepared to pay more for most the stuff i buy, but am glad the "little guy" who just wants to sell some trasfer tokens will be able to sell them for Luna price and not have to knock off 10mil

    I'm confused. Unless you are one of the bots running around Luna grabbing vendor info, how does a vendor search negatively impact your five accounts?

    I don't know anyone, from any play style, who complained about needing to wear robes, except for the three or four posters on UHall who wanted a change. What that tells me is EA is listening very well, because it's a change that caters a minority without affecting balance one bit (same slot, different graphic). Even so--and irregardless of what an Epaulette looks like--the majority will gobble up 2 MR and 5 DCI, I'm sure!

    Shrugs. The aesthetic argument was pointless, however, as there was no real basis for an argument. The user can overcompensate robe mods with Shame loot; there was no real issue as far as choosing between style or substance. In fact, as I recall, I even offered to help you plan out a robe-less suit, but you never PM'd me back.

    Now, if they would only give us a way to get other limited things, like the Dread War Horse!

    Invulnerable while shopping (and a gate back inside a private house?) sounds even worse than a free gate. The restrictions on traveling is already broken thanks to teleporters and portals.

    Siege won't get anything extra to make it more functional. Just people who can't gate will have to find a different way to get there.

    I think vendor search sounds great! I am looking forward to that.

    I am not a fan of the gate to the vendor feature. I think that should be removed. The adventure getting there is half the fun. just display the location with a dot like we are all use to.

    The Vendor Search feature will be a great boon to player towns. I am looking forward to those creative people putting their minds to building their towns out around something like this.

    Huge difference between a Tinker Legs and a deed with 20 Orc Bass. Ya sure the vendor made a sale at 12mil. And if the uber vendor house didn't find the deal first then you double the number of happy people. Taking lucky timing and the search out of the picture while the uber vendor house/site is given better tools for BOT searching. They will at least get to recycle the old champ ghost signal sound for item search finds. OR sellers can search for like items to place on their vendor and avoid the Luna mindset of slight lower pricing. Something priced for 9,999 stands out better then 10,000. This will not kill Luna but make every vendor a LUNAtic. The little vendor house on Blanche Isle will have the same selling power of the house on the other side of the wall from the Luna Moongate.

    How is that worse than a free gate? If as I suggested that you can't do anything besides interact with the vendor, it should have no affect on anything or anyone around you. Making you invulnerable was a suggestion to keep people from grief-ing by luring people into a vendor and then ganking them.

    Just because teleporters and portals are broken doesn't mean more broken systems should be added.

    As much as I hate the idea of griefing... I think that should be one of the bonuses of buying from a house in or close to a city/guard zone/tram over fel..... the safety factor.

    Are you willing to spend 300k more to buy it in Luna?

    This will not affect Luna one bit.
    People still love to congregate in one popular area so they will all still hang at Luna bank. Which ofc means that they will all still enjoy wandering around safely inside Luna

    That's funny. Siege is already full of carebears that buy and sell back suits after kills.

    Lets make it even less perilous now by protecting shoppers in the name of recall rules
