    Soooo, how do you like as first impression the new Vendor Search utility ?

    Where you able to find items you needed on a House in the middle of nowhere ? Was it easy to reach that location ?

    Overall, what are your first feelings ?

    On a side note, would it be possible please to raise the number of items searched ?
    I have a feeling that it is set a low number because on some searches, where I have not entered a precise name but only a couple of words to widen my search results, the search comes out as "too vague" with no results shown.

    Yet, I did this SAME SEARCH with the exact same words on both Origin AND Izumo and while on Origin it showed a number of few items containing those words, doing it on Izumo resulted as "too vague".

    So, my guess is that the problem is not with the words I used, but with the number of results obtained. My idea is that on Origin they were few enough to be within the limit set and hence they showed up while on Izumo the exceeded the item limit and, therefore, I was hit by the "too vague" search wall and no results were shown.

    Therefore, increasing significantly this limit should take care of the problem.

    Also, would it be possible please, as in regards with items with modifiers, to change the search so that one can have more options available to earch for values "equal or above" a set one ?

    For example, as of now if I am looking for a ring with SSI on it, I need to do the search multiple times for multiple values (i.e. 5%, 10%).
    Say that I want to locate all rings up for sale that have a value of 5% and up, I would like the search to allow me to tell it to look for 5%, 10% and so forth all in the same search rather than having to repeat the search for each different value....
    It would also be great, if one could also tell to the search engine to allow any and all rings that contain SSI 5% and above to show up as results, regardless of what other modifiers they may have BUT ALSO be able to tell to the search engine to ONLY show up rings with SSI 5% or above AND WITH NO OTHER MODIFIER (or with "some" modifiers specified by the searcher, say for example Defense Increase...).

    Thank you very much.

    i hate to be "that guy"... but.... im still barely impressed with this and prolly won't use it much.

    i just keep hoping for a publish that gives us something interested, like a revamped pvp system in factions or soemthing else. maybe some new skills to tinker with, i dunno... im getting bored again.

    I need to set up my vendors on Origin to see...I'd like to see how it works for those of us with vendor shops outside Luna and if people can get to us easily.
