    Horde/Alliance Temples - I want to be there, but there's no AH!

    I like the idea of giving engineers the convenience of having an auctioneer in the respective temples in the Vale. I used to be an engineer in Wrath and loved the perk. However, now I am a Jewelcrafter, and I still use the auction house a lot. I can't access the auctioneer from the Shrine of Two Moons. It's not mega inconvenient, but I l may as well live in Orgrimmar.

    I want to hang out in the new content capital, but I use the auction house so much, I have to constantly use my hearthstone (I guess Mages don't have this issue). This is sort of a rant of how I am stuck in Orgrimmar a lot, but also a constructive discussion on the pros and cons of the new auction house system.

    So you were okay with it when you were an engineer but now you're not okay with it because you're not one anymore? That doesn't sound very fair. Or you can give up your other profession for engineer.... And there are also portals to org so you can use the portal to org and hearth to the shrine.

    Be an engineer and a jewelcrafter?

    No. My point was I didn't realize it until I switched professions.

    I am not saying I want everyone to be able to use the auctioneer. More complaining, but it was my choice.

    Also commenting on how there's all this new content, yet I am still stuck in Orgrimmar.

    That's the point. Blizz wants to keep the home cities active. So, the AH is not in Pandaria. It seems to be working, although I'm not sure I agree with it.

    once upon a time in Beta they DID have an AH in the shrines, where the portals are... but there were no portals.

    the devs decides that portals to the cities would be better.

    I just have an engineering alt that sits in the shrine and abuses the auctioneer. Everything passes through his hands to and from the mail box. It's an extra step, but I haven't had to go back to org in quite some time.

    I'd suggest using a bank alt. You can even put engineering on it and park it at shrine if that's where you want to be.

    Except to engineers. My main shaman hasn't even used portals since he got to the vale.

    So really, there is no point to only giving it to a few classes. just throw in some scattered around pandaria and it will work out fine. Have a normal AH new the BMAH, one in halfhill, one at dawns blossom and so on.

    If they want to get players out into the new world then just throw in some essential vendors and its done.

    Which is largely why I don't quite agree with the action.

    IMO, the problem with people not being out in the world in Cataclysm had a very simple cause - there was almost literally nothing to do. That isn't the case in MOP...or at least, not yet. I think they could easily put an AH into the Shrines and not see any major impact on the world.

    Stormwind and Orgrimmar, however, would see an effect.

    could you imagine how much lag would be in that tiny ass temple if there was an ah?

    seriously the shrines are like 2/3 smaller than dalaran, plus its way too crowded already

    Just give it time. While the AH is only accessible by Engineers in the shrines, I would bet that it's going to go the way of the Engineering only AH in Dalaran. Soon(TM) it will be an AH for all.
