Yeah sorry, GTN not AH, but I enjoy people defending my right to call it an Auction House if I feel like it.

Oh yeah, and also, the fact that half the time you sell something you get a cryptic email like "oh someone just bought your crap", and of course you don't get the money for another hour, REALLY???

I can buy 6 different Synthweave shirts and have them magically appear in my inbox within seconds, but a simple electronic funds transfer takes a fricking hour??? Is Wells Fargo in 1985 really have better technology than the old republic?? Why don't they just use whatever magically transporters they have to send me shirts instantly used to just put my credits in a nice lockbox and send them to me instantly FFS.

And then half the time the system doesn't even tell you what you sold, it just randomly emails you money... it's pretty hilariously bad actually.

Yeah it really needs some help, ASAP. Trying to find things is very clunky and counter-intuitive.

Oh yeah, totally forgot about slot selection. Finding a helm or earpeace is like a quest, you should get like 10k xp for being able to find one under 30k, frickin greedy launch abusing crafters.........

I can't believe you care so much, sounds like butt-hurt to me. People who use the term "AH" out of habit aren't so dumb that we forget which game we're talking about, we don't go up to the terminal and start looking for battle elixirs and magic wands.

It is not an auction house. You don't bid here. You buy. It's a trade network. Get use to it.

It does need a search function though.
Without me, it's just aweso.
i7 950 @ 4.0ghz, ASUS X58 Saber mobo, 12gb RAM@1866mhz, 6970 LIGHTNING, 120GB SSD, 1TB HDD, BWU Keyboard, Razer Mamba, PC350s, XFX XXX 750w PSU.
This game desperately needs some sandbox elements. Repetitive grinding is not fun.
