hi dear users and i hope the dev is looking too
my suggetion is to create new NPC
the dev can decide the location ... supposed to be in junon cuz this is the center of all shops
that NPC will gather all info of the selling items in junon
and there will be a search bar that you can quick search the item u want can Mark the location of that player's shop

well i know it exist in ROSE Online, im not saying to copy it
but i think it will be a cool and nice new feature to the game
and making the shopping more easy and comfortable
what do you think of that?

1: This sounds gimmicky and overly complicated.

2: I'm personally of the mindset, if a PServer can do it, it can be done better.

3: Auction House would still be a better option.


You can sell without needing to stay online [offline selling]

It condenses all items into 1 UI and can be accessed technically from anywhere, depending on implementation.

It support a search function, and doesn't require you to find the shop as compared to your suggestion.

It helps reduce the odds of players being scammed, as having all items listed and sorted by price makes visibly spotting extra 0's or digits easier.

It also helps reduced over priced items / over pricing, as you can see who has the best* prices in 1 window, all accessed from the same interface.

Encourages the development of a 'mail box' system. For items to be purchased from the AH and mailed to you. 


Mail system itself has plenty of benefits but it's off topic.



Point is, there's a reason Auction House marketing is so popular in MMO's. It's the best formula and one of the most secure. No system is perfect, but the closest so far, is an auction house system, and there's plenty of examples to go by for the developer to make a nice one.


So personally, no, I don't like this shop search function. There's much better alternatives, and it sounds janky.
