TF Crier – Auction Houses? Guild Stores!

Communiques from the White Gold Tower – Updates from the Official ESO Site

The White Gold Tower released an official response to several questions posed by those seeking to extract the riches that surely can be found in the many dungeons located throughout the land. Many of these notices, posted throughout the the land, apparently had hand-written advertisements for ‘Dungeon Delving Insurance’. When asked about these adverts, the White Gold Tower representative we sought out indicated that such adverts are not sanctioned and should be disregarded. Though the representative would not identify the culprits, several readers of the illicit ads indicated that many of the postings had fine, uniform claw marks at the bottom of each one.

“Yes, this will improve your stamina…”

The Mage Sage recently suspended all official imperial trade routes and markets. Sage calls for guilds to establish regional trade routes and markets to help avoid monopolies and to curb banditry along the many trade routes across the land. Many Khajiit caravan masters responded by seeking out the Brotherhood to silence Sage. It has been a few days since we have had any further communications from the Mage Sage since the announcement.

The scholars, from the province of Shoddy, have created an informational scrying mirror discussing the history and culture of the Ayleids. The scyring mirror will be on display in TF square next week! Those interested in learning more about the Ayleids are encouraged to attend one of the viewings.

That Is All!

    What does this have to do with Auction Houses? Plus this only mentions guild store lore which is good and everything but we need info on exactly what they are.

    I assume that “The Mage Sage recently suspended all official imperial trade routes and markets” is referring to auction houses.

    Why is there no Ayleid ruins anywhere other than Cyrodiil? They were really good in Oblivion.

    The Ayleids, also known as the Heartland High Elves, only lived in the region now known as Cyrodil. They didn’t live in large groups elsewhere, and so, there are no ruins of theirs to be found.

    bro.  bro.  encouragements first :D  The post was witty and fun.  Then put in your opinions/concerns.

    All I can say, I hope the Brotherhood didn’t succeed.  All-in-all, I am very…cautious about this guild store, as I’m sure everyone is, since we have almost no idea what it means.

    Star swords melting armor,  the mage-madness, & pointy ears/thin bodies sound  very op in my opinion as well. To bad ESO history shows the downfall were the Ayleids themselves. It’s a possibility history could repeat itself… A token of luck in my hope it doesn’t.

    One may summon his philosophy when they are beaten in battle, not till then.

    The title was in reference to:

Many Khajiit caravan masters responded by seeking out the Brootherhood to silence Sage. It has been a few days since we have had any further communications from the Mage Sage since the announcement.

    On the second page of that link, Paul Sage confirmed that trading will primarily be through Guild Stores, not an Auction House.

    I wonder how Guild Stores would work, maybe they can collect tax on what is sold, that would be cool.  So it appears we would have the option of either buying from Auction or Guild Store, which is nice since I’d rather buy from a Store that has reasonable prices rather than an Auction which, in my experience, has inflated prices.

    I think the idea is that there won’t be an auction house at all. Which makes sense due to the mega server tech. Don’t want to end up with a Trading Post like GW2 where everything is constantly massively inflated all the time.

    The one question is will there then be a giant guild to join specifically focused on trade and sales, thus makin it’s guild store into an auction house?

    And how will this effect small guilds or players that have not interest in joining multiple guilds or the player that does not join any guilds?

    Guilds could tax purchases through their stores as a source of revenue, if such a tax were implemented.  This revenue could be used to procure supplies for running the dungeons, big-group adventure zone content, and the war effort.

     

    Paul Sage confirmed that there will not be any central- or faction-based auction house.

    There will be a ”Large Scale Player Trade Mechanism” in the game (basically an Auction House). They want it more focused than a huge broad-scaled AH, and have a small community towards it.

    In the MMORPG.com Q&A session last week, Paul Sage answered a question about trading with other players:

    You will be able to trade in your Guild Store.

    In other words, the “Large Scale Player Trade Mechanism” is the Guild Store

    I too like the idea of guild taxes.

    guild tax would only work if you could sell outside the guild. Otherwise no one will want to tax their own guildies I would think…

    Please elaborate why such a tax would not augment guild donations as well as some may think?

    I would love to have taxation (is that right?) on the guild stores! then you could collect money without having to actively collect from members.

    I think guild masters being able to impose a guild tax directly on store purchases rather than looted currency might be a nice way to implement that feature in ESO. I’m not sure it will be in at all, though. I don’t know if there will be sufficient guild expenses to justify a taxation system in-game.
