Sheesh...I'm embarrassed.

I've been playing with the market for some time. 
And, I'm not too proud to admit I don't know everything. But, I really felt like I knew just about anything having to do with the AH. 

 

Then, re-watching @Dahle's video, after re-visiting the Iron Man thread, I came across this little tip that I never, ever noticed before.

See that bit on the bottom in white letters? "Search for Salvage used in this recipe"....I never, ever noticed these words before. Had no idea they'd portray the salvage used in the recipe. All this time I was using the tool tip from the mouse cursor over the recipe icon. 

Ya just click on it, and it shows you. 

I'm sure many of you already knew about this - but me being the obtuse person I am...I never noticed! 

So, for the one or two of you who may also be a bit obtuse, or simply unobservant - here's your pro-tip for the day.

WHAAAAAAAAA????????????????????????? 🤯

 

You are not alone.  Until this post I never would have bothered paying any attention to that text.  I knew there were words there but honestly did not look closely nor did it ever occur to me to mouse over them.  Talk about a failure in UI design. 🤡

I've used it often. How could it be improved? I'm not sure, other than to list the savage explicitly as links and give back buttons from their listings. But there's a number of neat features (and quirky stuff) in the auction. The original developer tried to think of ways to make it work well. Even if they didn't get everything, and it needed a few QoL passes, it's pretty good overall.

Yeah guess I forgot to use my <sarcasm> </sarcasm> tags 🙃.  Not sure if the graphics engine they used would support underline but personally I think that would go a long way as to making it a little more obvious to us clueless mortals that the text can be interacted with.  (Note: The above underline goes nowhere 👍)

/e facepalm

If someone posts a reply quoting me and I don't reply, they are most probably on ignore.

Some of them even know that I have them on ignore.

But that won't stop some of them from bullying and harassing people, because some of them love to do it.

It's who they are. There is a group of them that have banded together to do it. They think that it is acceptable.

Ignore is a tool to improve your gaming experience. Don't feel bad about using it.

If it makes you feel any better, I pretty much have them committed to memory!

 

I don't bother memorizing them.

Whatever the character is specializing in has the ingredients in a list in the bought tray and I just hit "find" and then buy however much I need of that ingredient.

I never remove the initial seed ingredients list for each specialized item from the bought list. it's always there to "find" from.

 

I don't even memorize the pricing. I have a spreadsheet for that.

I learn new stuff all the time.  It's great!

 

It's always a great feeling when you stumble upon something that has been there but you really never really needed it in order to succeed, but it is even better when you have really been frustrated about something and you finally uncover that that thing that makes everything that you have been trying to do ten times easier.

Interestingly enough, after trying it out, this knowledge doesn't really speed up my process at all.

 

Although it does make it easy to list the salvage, it does not autopopulate price or amount, which my normal method does.  As a result, I'm finding my old method slightly preferable.  Also, I hate change, get off my lawn, etc.

What I really want to do is open more than one auction window at a time. Even if they share all the same market slots.

 

Just curious.

How would you use two auction windows at the same time or what would you be cross-referencing or whatever?

I would be hunting for salvage in one, and going over recipes in the other.

If you want to make a fortune of Inf in City of Heroes, watch my guide on the Auction House.
Or come on by and visit my Discord.

I run my theme groups there and chat with Twitch viewers in voice there.
And lastly, come see my on Twitch.  City of Heroes is my main game!

I had accidently clicked on it one time and was trying to figure out how I had the salvage listed for a recipe. A couple weeks later I noticed the text and clicked on it. One of those "oh holy s*** moments." I never felt more like a newb as a vet.
