@Aero: Cool, I do think it's a nicer way to offer players who missed content that wasn't there a chance to get some of the more needed items!


I was thinking of 2 things that would be good to have for the auction house. One, there should be a way to skip a particular auction if you aren't interested, just like in his video. Two, as I see the list of obtainable items grow it becomes very important to when they list the item also have the item stats viewable so that the player knows what they are bidding on.

You may have already incorporated both of these things, but if not I highly recommend them!

I'm not gonna add items that are found from chapter 6 and over(except few items). So no no for Shard of Shadow and Apocalypse.
I can't see a reason not to add the easily missable Shard of Shadows.
Your reason made no sense whatsoever.

That's an item that will never be upgraded to any powerful item(synthesis or item set). I just don't like to put this item to Auction Hall. Plus it will bug if there are two of this item(some items bug if there are more than one).

Yea well I'm not 100% sure yet how this will work. Actually I'm not going to do this system. But yeah it should be pretty fast, fun and not boring.

What about Azureus set pieces (except Armor and Relic)? They're very expensive for first-timers, so it could be nice.
And Master Key?

Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

How about Necromancer Staff?
(Especially important, as part of Chromatig)

That item you can buy from chapter 6 if I remember right.

You also should add the new starting items to the Auction Hall.
Quote
Takes too much effort to check if player have or not those sets. I don't know if I should add those sets, it's been bothering me.
Actually I've been thinking about this...
For example, initially variable 'A' is set to 0. However, after the Azureus Ring is purchased in chapter 1, variable 'A' is set to 1. Then, in chapter 7, the game then checks if variable 'A' is 0 or 1. If it's 0, then Azureus Ring is added to the Auction Hall. If it's 1, then do nothing.
Could that work?
(Again, I'm not very good when it comes to WE triggers, so I'm not sure if that could work. However, if the player has bought the item but then sold/dropped it, then it's obvious that they don't need the item, and there's no need to add the item to the Hall again.)

This could be done but it's a lot work to check everything. There are maybe 10 sets and I would also have to check if there are higher parts too(synthesis).

There are so many excellent items I still not see this useful: in the next version there will be a lot of new items!

Nah, I think only Azureus set and Shard of Shadows are needed. Other items are just too hard to miss.
That's only 6 items!
