For now, you can hawk your jacket on the docks. The devs have already promised that a consignment shoppe is "on the list." Har!

I know there's definitely one on Endurance - I'm sure Alpha has one as well. It has all sorts of stuff just falling out the windows - swords, definitely, clothes, I believe. I think it just looks like treasure through the windows, but it's been a while.

atteSmythe,
who wouldn't be suprised if Alpha's was east-facing, since Endurance's was south-facing

I still wonder why we would need such a shoppe when we could just have racks put in all the existing shoppes that sell finished items, effectively achieving the same thing, but without using valuable island space... :)

consignment vs. racks in shops Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

well, i see 2 different discussions:

a. consignment shops: i put my stuff up for sale to anybody.
--- which just involves tracking me down, when someone buys.
b. pawn shops: where i just sell my stuff to the owner, who resells it.
--- which is just an exchange of anything in the "selling" forums, no?

haven't been to the shop on alpha mentioned yet... how's it working?

ps. the idea of racks in shops of used stuff seems kinda like a hack...

Sure, go to the alpha bank and then walk outside. Walk southwest. The first building you'll pass is the furnature store. The next building is the consignment store. Neither have been implemented. Yet.

I can see no better time to implement this than now, with the amount of new traffic the oceans are seeing and will continue to see.

There is just way too much shouting going on in all of the oceans popular islands with people wanting to sell thier barnacle.

That's not the only direction to look at feature scheduling. I think there's no better time to implement the labor puzzles than last year, but everything takes time, so everything gets put into the queue.

No doubt. It had just occured to me after going to all three oceans and hearing the massive amounts of shouting that this would be a good idea. If getting more crafting puzzles means muting more random shouters then Im all for it :)

Huh. I figured that the banks would probably be turned into something like this to save space and use up an existing building. Good to know that they're already on their way.

Please mind the bump.

No, we won't make money. The consignment shoppe is not a PoE fountain. Any PoE from sales will come from other players and I suspect there'll be a fee placed so that players can't use the consignment shoppe as "free" storage.

Faulkston,
