The Winthier market has always been a popular gathering point for players to run shops, buy and sell goods, and socialize. Today, we feel it is time that the market got an upgrade. Exactly one week from now, we will be launching an exciting a new market in a completely separate world! This area will be more spread out and have much more room for not only the shops we have now, but shops that may be constructed in the future. With much more room and space in between each shop as well as a separate world, we will be able to considerably decrease the amount of lag many of our players have been experiencing around shops, as well as ensure that each shop is given its fair amount of exposure to its customers.
Some of you may be wondering, "But what happens to my current shop?”. Fear not! We will be moving shops into this new market upon request. If you would like your shop moved into the new market, you will need to claim a plot there once it is launched, and then post in a dedicated thread letting us know where your shop should be moved. Your items and valuables will be copied as well, so nothing will be lost as long as you have only built within the wool borders, anything else will remain for you to gather yourself. Remember that you will need to be Exalted or higher to claim a plot.
This new market will open its gates on July 19th, at 10PM Server Time. To see how much time is left, check the countdown clock on the website.
- All plots will be the same size as our current standard square plots, which are 13x13.
- All items and money will be able to go back and forth freely between worlds.
- Once this world is open, you will be able to type /market to get there.
- There will be no more evictions in the current market unless rules are clearly broken.
We look forward to seeing you there!
