The complexity, randomness, and pvp aspects of just turning this thing on made it entirely pointless for me when I can easily hop in the warspear portal and go to the auction house there. It simply isnt worth the hassle to me.
Does anyone know if replacing your Trading Post with another building removes the Ancient Trading Mechanism permanently? Or will it re-appear again once you build the Trading Post again?
Easily the most poorly implemented garrison feature. For the minor convenience that it is, the cost is just ridiculous. The Storage House features all provide an equally similar convenience and require no extra effort. It's also poorly advertised in the garrison building window, as you don't find out it'll take months of grinding to actually build the advertised AH until you build the thing and notice the quest.
i have been farming the ashran parts for 2 weeks now since its the only module i dont have, and no one sells them on my server. i have yet to see a single part
On my realm, it's not even possible to buy the Universal Language Components, nor is it possible to enter Ashran to farm them (Without a 3 hour queue)I've had the other 4 modules (Super Cooling Module, Arcane Crystal Module, Auction Control Module, Cyclical Power Module) sitting in my bank for a month now! Occasionally I'll see one of the 3 Universal Language Parts appear on the realm AH for around 100k Gold, never the finished module however and never posted alongside any other part! (No amount of gold can buy the finished Module)I've now given up all hope of getting the Universal Language parts, the robot shall forever remain laying on the floor broken.Somebody should really shout at the dev's on Twitter about this. I know of nobody that has the Auction House in their Garrisons despite tremendous effort farming the parts. Everyone gets stuck at the same point. The Universal Language components simply don't exist.
Thanks for putting all of this in a guide.Still seems like these drop rates are far too low for the reward (Mage, Hearth set in Stormwind, so many teleport items); I think I've seen two items so far.
I agree with all of the comments made above. Farming the pieces takes a long time, and the prices of the components are outrageous (anywhere from 1-100k gold per component). Luckily, I have most of the parts myself (sans the universal language components because I don't do pvp or am willing to pay the 100k gold per component). Yet, like another commenter mentioned, I can easily hearth back to any other major city and use the AH there. The cost to use ratio is way overboard in regards to this, and should be changed to an automatic feature that people can simply pay currency for (garrison resources + apexis crystals + gold) to activate.
Not worth the hassle to me. Bliz should rethink these requirements. Thanks for the guide, nonetheless.
+1 for not worth the hassle. The AH is just a hop away through the Ashran portal, or if I don't wanna burn my HS or wait for a flight back, I can just swap to my AH mule to buy/sell whatever I need. Any parts I've found have gone on the AH.
we REALLY need a way to permanently ignore certain quest !s we never plan to do, ever. I have absolutely no need for an Auction House in my garrison. All I want is for the ! to go away. Many people feel this way about the pet quest and / or the fishing quest, too. Surely, everyone out there has toons they didn't want to do things on. I didn't send all 11 of my toons off to Mt. Hyjal, so the board in the hubs has been tormenting me for years.
What if you build another building instead of trade post will the trader be lost or return next time u build the trade post ?
looking crappy things like this, I'm thanks myself everyday for chose to make my bank a goblin mage. I use the insta 90 for WOD expa (since all my other 10 tons were 90 when the expa came out). hearthstone on taureen part of orgrimmar and voila. between the entering to draenor and lvl 1 garrison quest line, the profession quest line and getting the followers of frostfire ridge I almost reach lvl 92. the rest of the way do it from xp mission from followers and now I can port to warspear so, everybody knows where blizzard can put theirs stupid impossible to get parts from the garrison AH, right?besides, the garrison sometimes hangs ups at 80% load bar so I will never miss an auction or lose a guy selling an epic at great price in the safety of orgrimar. in fact when I cant log in with any other alt trapped on garrison, I can unstuck the "a character with that name already exist" error logging in with my banker. :)
The Ashran requirement makes this an absolute no-go. Screw Blizzard and it's attempts to force world pvp on people who have no interest in it. "You do not need to kill players to loot these items" means if you are extremely lucky and no opposing players are lingering around the NPCs you will not have to kill any players. Not even going there.
I stopped trying to auction on any character I actually played a long time ago. Having to stop in the middle of a group to handle tells from folks looking to wheel and deal is a bit much. A lot better to just send items over to a mule with a guild bank and let him make the AH posts.
120k only for the Universal Module, okthxbye
This thing is way to much work for very little pay-off. Great guide though and thx for your time and effort. :)
