    First, I must say that I am enjoying the Magincia Bazaar vendors. They are simple to set up and use and allows for easy purchasing and selling of commodities.

    The pet vendors are also popular, although I have less experience with those, not having a large interest in pets. Therefore, if there are any pet vendors that have something to request in improving the use of their vendors, they can feel free to post after mine.

    A few requests for Magincia Commodity Vendors:

    1) Commodities with long names tend to cut off in bad spots. One commodity that comes to mind is imbuing essences. Some of the essences with longer names, such as "Essence of Singularity" will cut off to "Essence of". This leaves off the most important descriptor and leaves the sellers and buyers questioning what they are purchasing. Please extend the field to allow the full name to be displayed. Adding an option to view the image of what is being sold can also be helpful.

    2) In the view inventory/remove item section, DO NOT remove items that have received a stock of 0. This makes it difficult to know what items need to be restocked. Often, I will return to my vendor and be completely oblivious to what has just sold out, until I add more units to the vendor and notice the stock is unusually low. When the stock reaches 0, let the buyer know so that they can either remove the item or replenish its stock. Keeps everyone happy.

    3) Let the seller see what everyone else is seeing. It's great to be able to see things in full detail from the point of view of the actual vendor owner, but in order to get a full idea of your vendor, it's necessary to see what's getting posted up there. Right now, I have no way of knowing if I messed up a sell/buy price because what I see is different from everyone else. Add an option to the menu that allows the vendor owner to display what the vendor will look like to other people.

    These changes will help improve the Magincia commodity vendors and hopefully bring more people to discover what Magincia has to offer.

    I agree and do believe that the vendors do have a lot of potential. People just need to use them more.

    I second all that Aero...personally tired of selling "powder of".

    There is a bit of workaround for the potential buyer, just say you want to buy 1 and it gets you to the next screen and you see the full description and then you cancel before sale. But what a p.i.t.a that is.

    On a side note, found one bazaar vendor selling a rare mining gem for 6000 (can't remember which gem) and another bazaar vendor buying exact same gem for 9000, so I bought the 20 off the one vendor and sold them to the other. A quick 60k in my pocket hehe.

    Everything he said in the OP is right on! As far as pet vendors are concerned I would also Like to see what my customers see as well as the lore gump and "view" options for my own pets on the merchant.

    Simply setting a view option would allow me to lore the animal and let me be sure if its a special color.

    All great suggestions -

    I would like to add the suggestion that NPCs have relocated spawn locations that are not in the bazaar stall area.
    It seems "Todd the Rancher" has decided that my stall area is his favorite spot to spend his entire day, every single day.
    He will not leave, even with hundreds of pleas and my insistance for him to "move"!
    I'm beginning to really dislike Todd the Rancher.

    I also see the Town Crier in a bazaar stall, today at least, and also what looks like some escort NPCs.
    The escort NPCs are not so bad as they are not always there.

    For me, this is all on Siege Perilous - not that it should make any difference.
    I know I could relocate and move stalls, but I'd rather stay put (kinda like Todd).
