View Full Version : UI of auction house

While I love the game already (VIP for about three weeks now), I am very dissatisfied with the usability of the auction house UI. If there is anything that DDO could learn from WoW (in my opinion) it would be the user experience for auctions.

- You cannot use TAB to switch between some fields (from-to level range for example)
- You cannot search, you have to flip through lots of pages to find what you want
- You cannot filter for, lets say, all auctions in a user-defined price bracket

While the AH may not be THE way to get equipment, it is in the game and should imo help, not hinder the players. It is one of the tools to keep the money circulation in check and should not be a pain to use.

(I'm a QA manager in RL, so stuff like this tickles a nerve in me).

Agreed I miss the ability to filter at least, imo this is the biggest possible advantage, the ability to search for a keyword, or to be able to have a usable only box
