Late-December Version Update
From The Lodestone:
The final version update of the year will introduce the item search function, which players may use to search through retainer bazaars in market wards to locate specific items. The date and time of the version update are as follows.
Date and Time
Tuesday, December 21, 2010 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Item Search Function
This version update marks the first of several that will introduce improvements to item-based searches. The features to be added this time are listed below.
- A search option that tells players how many items of a certain type are being sold in the market area with which that item type is associated.
- Retainers returned by a search now have a distinguishing icon displayed above their head.
* Searches can be conducted by selecting the item search option at the entrance to any market, or from within any individual ward, row, or den.
With the introduction of the item search feature, it will now be significantly easier for players to locate specific items. We will continue to improve this system with further enhancements such as keyword-based searches, the ability to show the retainers selling an item at the lowest prices for searches returning numerous hits as with synthesis materials, and more. Concrete details regarding such information will be released in future Topics posts here on the Lodestone as they become available.
Discuss in the ZAM FFXIV Forums!
An more-user-friendly, less-buggy working beautiful world is a great start. If we could just get some content thrown into that world, I'd be a bit happier. I wouldn't even mind some instances/dungeons we could do for say 25-100 fraction point's a successfully completed dungeon(as something to do when we are done our guildleves). Based of what class you took into the dungeon.
find what you need faster!
Lets think about applying this concept to every search factor (maybe put a search filter in our menu) to add or hide icons repectively and to reduce or supply the player with an icon display. All we have are bazaar and linkshell icons, okay, but people are usually more complex than that. And there is no real adventurer search menu so what do we do to comunicate to each other... Lodestone forums? I dont think it would be such a bad idea to display icon over the heads of avatars to inform everyone on just that, different icons for different queries. Or we can just use them for the broken market wards and let the retainer have all the fun.
