    I am loving vendor search thanks dev team and Steven/Stephen especially.

    Just a couple suggestions, not search breakers by any means:

    !. Tokens all look alike, could the centers and or edges be given different colors so we can do a faster eye search without reading the fine details?

    2. Recipes, same thing they all look alike and I tried searching for blacksmith recipes, didn't work. So possibly give the different craft recipes different hues as well as make them searchable by craft.

    3. If you close the search window without clearing search, the current price range window you were searching in remains, so the next item you search for is confined to that price range window. Yes we can teach ourselves to cancel search between each item to clear that price range window, but if possible, when the search window closes, make it auto close the current price range window.

    4. That's all I can think of for now, other than any possibility of making the search background window transparent?

    Items inside containers do not show in search unless I'm doing something wrong

    I have noticed that some of the vendor search item descriptions say "container price". It seems to mean the item can only be bought when you buy the entire container.

    Most of the items I have found and bought through vendor search were actually inside containers. Once you teleport to the vendor, there is an option on the vendor map to open the container the item is in. This is a very nice service and even better yet it's free.

    I am not selling any items on vendors at the moment so this may be a *buyer*, oops meant seller, side issue of vendor search that I haven't been exposed to yet.

    Also searches for talismans could use more filtering informations....

    For example, say that I am only searching up for crafting Talismans which have a bonus, whether normal or exceptional of 25%, I should be able to set it up and cut out all Talismans below that number....

    Also for the killers, protection and Slayers, there should be a way to filter through only those I want as many are for useless animals.

    Speaking of this, shouldn't the talismans Killer, Protection and Slayer be updated with all of the new Monsters added since they initially came up (and code was written for them...) ?

    From the pool of available monsters which can show up as killer or protection a LOT are still missing....

    Can add options for filtering an allocated weaponry type under the equipment tab such as: fencing, swordsmanship, macing, archery, throwing.
