    Default Suggestion: Move rusty nail vendors outside

    it's been a while since the market tent got toasted, and it's not really missed.... but how about the poor displaced vendors go into the market area near cydonie agent of argonessen. Theres stalls everywhere there.

    Maybe there is speed issues, but it'd be great to see a hustle and bustle in the marketplace trading with vendors out in the open air.

    I agree. The lack of "seeing people" in the main instance is a huge downer for this game, and the first thing I noticed coming over here from COH three years ago.

    A Reconstructed "Vendor Deck" where the tent used to be makes the most sense.

    FURTHER, and this may cause some controversy-

    Take the House K and House D Vendors and either put them together in one spot, or bring them out too. Any other game I play in has their vendors together for best use and advantage for the players, not artifical ways of setting up travel time.

    Not a bad idea, if only to skip two useless loadings. Moving the other brokers there would be cool too. Less walking.

    Maybe the non-resetting of the brokers could be problematic?

    Yeah, you would have to have a forced reset "The clock strikes one am, and all the items gone"....

    The other problem is when you have multiple instances and you can see different stuff at different instances with the same vendor (I have only seen this happen ONCE, when someone was giving away their stuff in House D).

    I figured that may be the reason to seperate K+D from the others, but still, no reason to have the two of them apart other than to torture us. Put them all in House P near the AH, and I would be just as fine with it.

    Just say the rain flooded the vendors and they had to move to higher ground.

    Actually, we will be moving the vendors outside in Mod 9. We just wanted to make a spiffy place for them to set up shop before asking them to move.

    How much do these vendors kick back to you to get such treatment? These vendors are robbing the general population blind.

    What are the odds of spawning copies of the vendors in House D and K. I'm pretty sure whatever reasons that you seperated them are long since gone... and it'd be nice to have them all in a spot again... seeing as usage of them is pretty low.

    I agree - no more running all over town to sell different items!

    Also, I noticed last night that some nice low end Jewelry and Clothing is ALWAYS available as that Tavern is a very happening place! No more resetting and clearing of their inventory lists...

    I hope the new home is just as happening .

    I third this!! Just like iamsamoth that catchy beat was one of the first things about the game that captivated me. I would afk in there for nothing other than the tunes.

    But more serious, with the vendors outside I imagine a heavier server load not only with respect to the additional players but also inclusive of the actual lists of itmes maintained by the vendors - does this additional overhead 'hurt' the market instance?

    Yes I know that the Market can spawn new instances but am concerned that still the Market itself will be impacted at in some way...

    I for example know that the smart folk @ Turbine have defined their 'vendors' statically so that there's only one instance of each active at any given time so, even if there are multiple Market instances

    But wondering how the 5 minute loot purge rule will still apply since at any given time there's almost always someone in the Market... Would the 5 minute rule still be in effect and based on a particular instance of the Market or instead on a counter based system so that, as long as at least one instance of the Market is active, the 5 minute rule doesn't come into play?

    never liked the tent actually, but setting up on the stalls near cydonie would be perfect. Auction right near, trainers up the stairs.. Now if only the post box had a duplicate near the rusty nail...

    I would just be happy with a wand/scroll and ammo vendor in Meridia.
