When i first starting playing during early access i was very frustrated to find out they'd disabled the Auction house/trading post facility. A big attraction for me in new MMO's is the player economy and ill often spend as much time in the AH as i do in the rest of the game
However, ive found in TSW that not being able to easily buy new equipment has actually been quite refreshing. Gear in this game is sooo important as it vertually dictates your lvl. without the ability to buy stuff ive been excited at every loot drop and ive even explored crafting indepth which is something i never bother with. i think something special will be taken away from the game if you can easily purchase a ql7 weapon and then fasttrack your SP to be able to use it.
i have a couple of blue drops that i sold through general chat and it wasnt much of a hassle. i even got a couple of ppl on my friends list because of it.
I never though i would say this of any MMO but i genuinely think the game is better without an AH.
If someone is talking in general chat in a language you dont understand, chances are they're not talking to you. So chill out and stop bitching about it!
