    Default Work Orders

    Perhaps having some form of a board for people to post buy requests (for materials, items, craftables, consumables, artifacts etc).

    Example: Player A needs a Rune for his shoulders. Unfortunately, there are none on the AH, or there are not enough. None of his guildies have the recipe either. Player A posts on the Work Board that he needs x amount of Rune B and is willing to pay 10 plat.

    Functionality: Works very similar to a combined AH/Mail system. When Player A lists a Buy work order, the details are listed and the plat is deducted (as if bidding on an auction). Buy work orders can be cancelled. Player B comes along and wants to sell x amount of Rune B at 10 plat, and has the rune in his bag. He reads through the Work Orders, and selects to fulfill this one. Clicking accept on the Work Order removes the runes from his bag and sends it to Player A. The 10 plat is then delivered to Player B via mail, same as when something is sold on the Auction House, and the Work Order is removed from the Work Board.

    Would be nice to have a place of sorts to "list demands for goods and items" (considering the AH is a "list supplies for goods and items"), and makes the economy more exciting as you can sell immediately and don't have to spam trade channel with "WTS" messages nor wait and wait for something to sell on the AH. Also, it can help identify what the shard's market needs.

    Supported.

    A proper trading house instead of a limited auction house. Allow changing prices after you put up a buy or sell offer. Watch the market pvp happen, more goods being traded and add in some actual trade history data viewable by everyone so people can figure out whether something has been market manipulated in price or not.

    In fact, just copy the eve online market system.

    I like it.
    Fare thee well
    Let your life proceed by its own design
    Nothing to tell
    Let the words be yours, I'm done with mine.
