The only problem I could see with an open-ended sort of event would be too many people trying to get involved. The trade channel is hectic enough. Imagine going into the PC-vendor area, and there stand 27 blacksmiths clamoring for your business. I'd certainly participate in such a thing, but I'd need a guarantee that I wasn't going to sit in a crowd of like-minded crafters for an entire day without getting any business because there's just too many of us.

Then it'd just be like any flea market, antique show, European open air market I've ever been to.My own Chicago's Maxwell Street market was just junk sellers, hot dog vendors, and blues musicians all crowded on a little street, everyone screaming for attention. A big blur...

Hi there, I created and coordinate the Black Market. To help deal with this problem..and avoid possible scamming we have designated crafters :) . These are known and trusted players.----Crafters: Alexiel (Tailoring), Urt (Blacksmith),Plaguewalker (Jewelcrafting), Bdullah (Alchemy), Leiwin (Enchanting), Rikora (Engineering), Banshih (Leatherworking). Every crafter is lvl 80, with their profession maxed out.

interesting... i love the basic idea for sure! but, how do you decide who gets to be IN and who doesn't? do they just have to be maxxed-out crafters? i'd love to try and hype this concept on my own server, but i need some specifics to help build my case. thanks for thinking of this, and any answers you can provide.

Fantastic Idea!I really hope this is one of those ideas blizzard sees and responds to. There would be concerns of mat stealing, etc, but isn't there always that risk when getting something crafted? In any case, blizz could implement some type of structure to it to keep it semi-organized.But that is kinda the fun of black markets, bargaining a price between multiple vendors with the same goods amist a hectic, huslin' and busilin' market.
