What is a consignment house? Its a reverse Auction House. Basically, the potential buyer goes to the proper machine (Shard or Item) and places a request for a specific item, $$, and (optional) ingredients. A crafter walks up, and attempts to craft the consignment.

On success, crafter gains the ingredients and the money. The completed item gets sent to the Consigner.

The Consigner can set a % threshhold that limits any crafter from attempting to use supplied ingredients. (Any crafter can still try, but if they don't have the %, they must supply their own ingredients, though still get the ingredients on completion).

The Consignment house works $$ wise exactly like an Auction house. (Posting fee, 30% deduction on delivered funds).

Basically there would be two separate consignment houses. Shards and Items.

Love it. Super idea. Super Super idea. This is the beginning of a real crafter's guild.

So basically you suggest an option to place buy orders on the AH? That would be good.

More than once I needed a specific unboud shard, and it was not on AH. Out of luck.

It amounts to that, but personally, I'd like to see it as a tab in the machines. That might over-complicate things from the dev's standpoint, but it would sure help crafters.
