It would work in the same manner as selling, except you select the item you want to buy, list the price you want to pay for it and post it.
This would be a great way to gauge demand that isn't being met, as players could easily see what's being listed to BUY and know immediately how much demand there is for that item and then go either gather or craft whatever it is people are looking for.
I believe he wants a TAB Option where people can put up "WTB Ads" to compensate for the lost of the petshop being the staple for buying from people items the player doesn't have.
I agree with this, and it needs to be in the broker... Not just "WTS" Ads
I am all for this idea. Would bring another layer of depth to the broker and IMO would help make the loss of pets a lesser blow to some.
This would be a fantastic thing to implement to the Auction House.
It would benefit as it would reduce the "WTB/WTS" spam in chat. It would also benefit folks who are crafting as their items may be a bit more valuable and easier to sell.
I like it. +1
Yeah, up until now, we really haven't had a "want ad" section in any game that I can think of, aside from what may be a very spammy trade chat.
I think it'd be awesome to be trying to meet demand as it shows up on the broker. Would feel like you're going on "missions" for a client who wants something very specific, and I like that a lot...
