Features / Functionality
-Loads / Active while only in Major Citys & only outside these places if u choose
-Using AceCom Join a Global Channl
-Using AceCom as well to Scan / parse the trade channl for Enchanting barks using common abriviations / formats.
-when u load up the UI you can choose slot & type of enchantment and it sends a request to the Active Ace Channle for all enchanters loged into it for what they can do or if offering those first.
-it would also send a readable request to the Trade channle.
-i reilize that this could get spammy for the channle so it could also keep a catalouge of who can do what localy, and also keep that catalogue updated as it sees requests from others and responses.
-as far for enchanters they can select to only do certian enchants, or only Skill-Up enchants, All enchants ect; local databases would reflect this preferance & or update this accordingly
ofcourse this needs some refined programing but what ya think so far?
First the Interface for those looking:
would list on the left hand side, have the slot to enchant, then followed by a Generic Listing of what enchant can be applied.
Like for the Chest Slot, you can Add Mana,Health,Deflection,Stats; As each Sub-Type there are often different Ranks thereof.
when first selected it would show a history / "Snap Shot" of prevously seen price/people
to update this list Live would querey the Trade Channle (both /2 and an addon only chl) for players ONLINE/in the channle that for the desired enchant. Once a player has been defined as being able to do an enchant, and is above lvl 35, then it would log the player as able and price with and without mats for future referance.
also be able to querey the player for current prices as market changes --optional ofc
other wise it would simply monitor the addon channle for updates to players / prices.
For those that can do the enchantment:
it would list what they can do - in much the same way you would search for it as listed above. then it would let you put in your own prices for each item or, poll for average prices as previously seen. You'd be able to set prices for doing the enchant with and with out mats and weather or not to advertise a perticular enchant. As some enchanters arn't doing low lvl enchants to make money off of.
If a lot of people dont even use the built-in LFG/LFM interface then I dont think you'll actually get many people using an addon such as this, thus defeating the purpose.
ah, No the LFG/LFM system being borked is more because people do not believe in the system to actually work, thus they do not list them selfs LFG/LFM. Where as if they did they might actualy find a group. but the flaw there as u have states is that people do no use it. the system works only if one works with in it.
but this is more along the lines of Auctioneer, plenty of people use that as can be seen by the number of downloads and hits the site gets.
while i appreciate your comment and input - your PoV on this and the LFG system is ultimately why things like this will not work - the "I don't wanna use it because others don't use it"-"herd of sheep off the cliff" mentality.
