WoW Classic Addons: IAmAMerchant

Recommended Posts

44576-wow-classic-global-stress-test-del

Today, we're looking at an ambitious Classic Addon called IamAMerchant, currently developed by Redditor NukiWolf2. The addon will turn you into a vendor, and that's something the RP community will appreciate.

Visiting the Auction House and spamming Trade chat can be tedious if you want to sell your wares. Often, you won't sell anything, and you'll lose your deposit on top of that.

The main goal of IamAMerchant is to transform players into vendors, allowing others to inspect and buy items from you. You must set up a list of items that you want to sell and assign them a price. Then, you must wait for a player to inspect your wares and they can make item requests through whispers.

The next step in development is to add a UI that will simplify the process of adding items you want to sell. The developer is looking for feedback, and here's how the addon currently looks like. What do you think?

Reminds me of a similar feature in Aion but you actually do sit down and can type in a marketing window on what you wished to sell and can stay afk for a duration till the game kicked you out.

Back in the real old Everquest days, they added this with a zone called the Bazaar. There was no auction house and selling things in trade chat was an absolute nightmare. You would setup what you wanted to sell, then people would click on  you to buy. Going /afk overnight and waking up to see what you sold would make for some fun mornings. It's also how my one of my toons ended up with about 380 days of actual game time, haha.

I always posted up at T2 in ECL. I don't think I was still playing when the Bazaar came about...

So how does this work? Do the other people need to have the addon to be able to buy from you using the addon? Do you appear as a vendor to people who don't also have the addon? Somebody please help me understand. 😢

      Onyxia has been recently defeated in WoW Classic by a raid group comprised of Druids only.
      Reddit user fouronnes and his raid with 32 other Druids have downed Onyxia in WoW Classic.

      Logs
      The raid was able to defeat the boss in a little over 10 minutes. Logs can be accessed by clicking on the image below.

      Queue times return to some WoW Classic realms with a high population amid the coronavirus lockdown and character transfers. Firemaw (EU) players report 3-4 hour queue times on a Sunday, urging Blizzard to lock the realm and a similar situation is occurring on Incendius (US).
      Redditor ANTRagnarok came up with a graph while waiting in the queue and it turns out you must log in at 4:45 p.m. if you want to make it to the raid that begins at 7:30 p.m.

      Players are urging Blizzard to lock Firemaw (EU) on the official forums and offer free character transfers, as many do not want to transfer to different realms using the paid character service.
      The situation was apparently worse the day before with queues exceeding 3,000 players which resulted in 5-6 hour queue times. Redditor Aoussar123 reports that people are idling in cities hitting the space bar every once in a while to stay logged in which makes things even worse.

      Incendius (US) is facing a similar situation, but the queues aren't as bad as in Europe. The realm was beyond capacity full even before paid character services, then came transfers from Faerlina, Skeram, and other realms, rendering Indencius beyond unplayable according to Redditors. Players reported 2-3 hour queue times on Incendius during raid time.
      Blizzard has so far not responded to any of the reports and we will keep you updated should they come up with any solutions in the near future.

      UPDATE: The issue has now been resolved.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The aforementioned fix was completed with restarts at 6:00 a.m. AEDT, and the Battleground Holiday has been operating as expected on Oceanic realms since then. The first Battleground Holiday has been delayed in Oceania due to a bug. Blizzard is currently working on a fix that may require Classic realm restarts.

      The first Battleground Holiday should have gotten underway on Oceanic realms at 12:01 a.m. AEDT (about 4.5 hours ago). That has not yet happened, due to a bug.
      We’re working on a fix, and the fix may require realm restarts of Oceanic Realms, which we would undertake very soon if necessary.
      We apologize for the delay.

      Blizzard today announced they suspended numerous WoW Classic players that were found to be using anti-AFK cheats or bots that automated movement, mainly in Alterac Valley.
      Anything that degrades the gaming experience for other players will result in harsh penalties, according to Blizzard, and they will continue to issue suspensions based on player reports, so if you see someone circumvent AFK rules, make sure to report them!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Yesterday, we issued numerous suspensions to WoW accounts that were found to be violating our Code of Conduct. Affected players were e-mailed with details about the violation and suspension – a great many of which were found to be using anti-AFK cheats or bots that automate movement, especially in Alterac Valley.
      This was the most-recent in a series of similar actions we’ve taken to address unfair gameplay in WoW Classic.
      Please be reminded that using third-party programs to automate any facet of the game, exploiting bugs, or engaging in any activity that grants an unfair advantage is considered cheating. Exploiting other players is an equally serious offense. Scamming, account sharing, win-trading, and anything else that may degrade the gaming experience for other players will receive harsh penalties.
      We’ll continue to monitor reports of and take actions against players who circumvent AFK rules. If you come across a player violating the Code of Conduct policies, please report them.
      Thank you.

      Blizzard has just posted patch notes for the latest WoW Classic update which includes Arathi Basin, two new factions, Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza, Battleground Holidays, and various bug fixes.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Features
      Arathi Basin
      Join the League of Arathor or the Forsaken Defilers as they battle for precious resources. Pitting 15 members of each faction against each other, the race is on to be the first to 2000 resources, capturing strategic landmarks around the Basin to increase your team’s gain and cripple the enemy. There’s never been a better time to join the war.
      Arathi Basin will unlock at 3:00 p.m. PDT (6:00 p.m. EDT) on Wednesday, March 11.
      Battleground Holidays
      Most weeks, Warsong Gulch, Alterac Valley, and Arathi Basin now enjoy holidays that begin on Thursday night at midnight and continue until Tuesday morning. During a holiday, emissaries from that Battleground will be found in the major cities, and honor/faction rewards for performing objectives in that Battleground are increased.
      Bug Fixes and Updates
      There is now a warning dialogue when players enter a raid that has an active raid lockout, giving players the chance to avoid accidental raid saves. Harvesting gathering nodes that are on zone boundaries should now be more reliable. Many particle effects and transparency effects now display more accurately. For example: Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker will appear brighter than before. Perdition’s Blade will appear brighter than before. Particle effects on the Warlock and Paladin class mounts will be less pronounced than before. Fixed an issue that could cause Nefarian to momentarily fly away after revealing his true from at the beginning of Phase 2 of his encounter. Players who are Honorless Targets are now immune to Mind Control. Hunter Player-controlled pets now move in a straight line to their target when commanded to attack, rather than defaulting to behind the target. Shaman Mana Tide Totem should now reliably deliver a fourth tick of Mana Tide. Warlock Blood Pact is no longer re-cast when Amplify Curse is used or Nightfall procs.
