Autonomous Brokering in Rain of Fear11-08-2012
The Art of the Deal
Players have long requested the ability to sell items while they are offline, and with EverQuest: Rain of Fear this will become a reality!
Brokering while offline couldn't be simpler with this feature upgrade! Simply set up your broker as you normally would, making sure to have correct pricing on all of your selections, and then click on the new button in the trader interface labeled "offline mode." If you prefer to use command lines, we've got you covered; the command "/offlinemode" will have the same effect.
Using this button (or command) will log you out of EverQuest, but your trader will remain active. Any sales made during this time will work normally, and you'll be happy to log back in and find freshly delivered piles of platinum on your character!
I'm Buying 500 Shares of Antonica Steel!
We're not stopping at sales though; EverQuest: Rain of Fear also includes a number of improvements on the purchasing side! For the first time ever, players will not need to be in the Bazaar to see what items are available for sale (and at what price). Instead the /bazaar command will be usable anywhere in Norrath and display the items for sale in the bazaar as normal.
In addition to the traditional method of purchase directly from a seller, those who have Rain of Fear will also be able to buy items from anywhere in Norrath! Simply search for an item as you normally would using the bazaar menu, then click on the item you'd like to buy. After purchase, two delivery options will be available: delivery to the nearest parcel vendor (available for a modest fee* in game coins), or expedited delivery (via our new Expedited Delivery Vouchers** available in the Marketplace) which delivers the item straight to your cursor.
All in all, commerce in Norrath is about to receive a huge update!
*Currently the fees for parcel delivery in our Beta Test are set at 10% of the cost of the item being purchased, but this is subject to change.
**Expedited Delivery currently requires two Expedited Delivery vouchers, subject to change.
