the trading system is okay , but it could use a few improvements. Firstly, two major and improbable changes, but that would be a nice QOL imprevement: AFK Market/ AH: An npc that lets you sell or buy items from another players, even if they are afk. Maybe reduce the personal shop fee and put an increased one on this market so players still use personal shops. That is, if the game engine can allow such a functionality, taking into account all the game works in "instances" and maybe a serverwide auction house is not possible. Let us sell and buy shards in personal shops. Gilding shards requires tons of grinding and gilding 5 deadly strikes is not an easy task. a Market would let new players get resources for Mods and gear upgrading and even old players sell shards from characters they dont use to buy new mods or other shards. This wont outdate the dust system as some shards are not being really used and you get way more than you could sell with the current market system. And, the two i would consider would be huge improvements to the actual trade system, without "major" changes Let us name our shops, if possible. Seriously, the best part of automated trade systems in games is being able to search for what you want. Here you have to browse 20 shops everytime you log into town. I would like to see a shop called "TENACITY 95 CH34P BUY FAST" if i am looking for mods. The only way to search currently is the general chat. Let us hide sold out or empty shops. Like the naming thing, this will hugely help browsing, making the market more bearable to use . TL'DR The trade system is not exactly bad, but lacks some features that make people prefer automated trade instead of screaming in chat for 2 hours until a shady individual says "Psst kid, want some Ch8 ampoules?" and proceeds to rip you off.
