    Default A few solid suggestions for SL.

    1. 5-slot trade window: We have 5 pieces of gear to make a set, why only 4 slots? I spent all morning mediating a huge arguement because someone logged after trade without giving the final piece up. This could even happen by fluke, you get dc'd after trading the 4 pieces but before giving the 5th one. This is quite a glaring issue, and makes *zero* sense in my opinion. I assume because the trade screen is the same coding as PL's.

    2. Enhancer timer: No, this has nothing to do with the timer counting down outside of a dungeon, I'm sure the devs know that one. Here's my beef...
    Say you bought a 3x 30 minute enhancer, and have been playing for roughly 20 mins. Well, the best time to check your remaining enhancer is right as you remake, as you wait for friends to join. Here's the issue, albeit a minor one: "So-and-so has entered the zone" appears directly overtop of the enhancer countdown, so you can't see the time remaining. If all 4 friends join while you're trying to look, you end up spending 10-15 seconds trying to see past it all, and instead of hosting/leading, you are now the guy in the back saying "Hey, wait up!"

    3. Combo Enhancers: When a combo enhancer runs out, it acts like it's actually 5 seperate ones and in turn spams your screen 5 times that your enhancer wore off. Uber annoying when trying to keep your peepers peeled for tiny red mines.

    4. People you have muted/ignored joining your runs: This has been suggested before, but is more important than ever. Say you're hosting and trying to be quick, so no pw, and you don't really care who joins as long as it fills up.
    That doesn't mean I want the guy that called me a "%&*&# mine triggering #$#!$%" to keep joining my games, or people you don't enjoy playing with in general. There's no reason for someone the host has on ignore to be able to join runs.

    5. Deals of the Day: This has gotten me jipped out of plat many times with the Holiday pack, Rivet, 3x Combo, etc.. When something is up on DotD, the price for said item should be that cheap everywhere. Maybe with a little *dotd* sign beside it so you know why it's cheaper than usual. I can't tell you how steamed I was to buy a Rivet the day they came out for 500plat only to see DotD 20 mins later for 50% off. Or even the Xmas packs, I bought 2 for 30p each, back out of my menu to learn they are only 25p. This adds up and has probably eaten up a few hundred plat on my expense.

    6. Make the bonus from custom sets worth the 200k in recipes/mats. Simple enough. As it is I'm only in custom for the looks, the benefit from the set bonus is negligable, especially in Voleria. Good work on the custom weapon color changes though.

    7. Auction Terminals: Why not put 3 along that wall in the AH, or even a circle of them in the middle facing outwards? Help spread the people out so when you go looking for a friend in town, you can find him and he's not buried under 20 people standing at the single terminal. Stash is never busy like that thanks to the Guildhall stash, but the auction terminal is a cluster. Also, between the terminal, Preston the Auctioneer, and the horde of bodies there, you almost never click what you meant to the first time. Also, we can haz item sold notification, pl0x?


    Well, I know I had more, but I can't remember and these were the important ones, so feel free to add to this.

    Great ideas Ebalere! I certainly like the combo enhancer suggestion because it does get annoying, and placing the "elixir buff" section a bit more easier to access.

    Good ideas! One idea I have is the ability to repurchase guild hall enhancers at the dungeon instead of taking the long route back. By the time you get back, everybody abandons your game.

    The mana regen on custom Runetech is good enough for me. As long as I don't have to use blue stims I am happy. Not sure what the bonus is, other than +2 mana regen.

    These r all great ideas ive had problems with all of these. The auction terminal thing doesn't really bother me that much but at least one more terminal would be nice.

    I still can't fathom y we can't access the cs from the tier 3 guild hall. everything else is there. I hate leaving the GH when I'm messing around wit buddies to check the cs, then I come back and the party's over.....

    edit: I'll also throw this in here rather than start a new thread since devs have checked here. I'm sure this had been suggested, but the stash is so flawed it's frustrating. I don't get the way it organizes what I put in. I would be happier if everything I put in stayed in the exact order I put it there rather than the randomness of it now. at least then I can say "I know I put that vanity in when I stashed my mats" so I can just look for a chunck of mats and I know my van wil be there. I've thought I accidentally liquidated things bc I couldn't find them. I go through it almost every other day, and I can't decide which is more frustration, trying to find something or putting everything on my stash toon and switching back and forth to get things I need. I can't imagine this hasn't been suggested by others already, but id forget to mention it if I didn't type it out when it popped into my mind

    thats actually a really good idea, a CS in GH would be amazing.

    I really like ideas 1,4,5, and 7. I would especially like to see the muted one implemented .....you really don't want someone u muted following u like that.

    Also l also like lelouchx's ideas for cs in gh. Sometimes I don't even want to walk into blackstar because of all the random friend requests and junk.

    Great ideas!

    Edit: forgot to include would love stash to be organized......it takes forever to find stuff sometimes.

    are there stash and cs terminals in any of the other "towns?" i think that would be a great idea also if they aren't there already, i haven't looked at the new town, but i don't remember seeing one in the numa town. i hate all the random guild/friend invites and PM's "why won't you join my guild," or "if you join my guild i'll make you an officer" on my poor little merch toon. she's very shy and doesn't like to chat, she gets scared when too many people try to talk to her. in hindsight, probably a bad idea to make my merch toon a female....
