You guys get to be my lab rats. Being Warhammer is small and changing the system when there was no system before can't hurt anything. I've enabled the new Materials Discovery system. This system will become the new foundation of the marketplace system moving forward into games down the road. This system allows any Lorgaire or higher member to add new undiscovered materials to the marketplace for glory and some discovery points. Their name will forever be written as the Discoverer of the material and they will earn 10 Discovery points upon approval.
At this point you can begin adding new materials by going to the Marketplace Section, Select Warhammer Online, Then Click "Discover New Material". As you type the name of the Material a list of known materials will be listed below. Be sure you do not try to add one that has already been discovered or your submission wont do anything. I will be working on getting some of the base materials in the system so i can take a larger look at the data map. What I hope we can do is not only populate our marketplace but also create a crafting guide dynamically based on the crafting materials. Our guides today from the original warhammer still pull a fair share of traffic and many return of reckoning players know us from our guides. This will become one of the most comprehensive crafting guides on the web.
Go give it a look and let me know your feedback. Is it easy to use? What would you suggest. A little feedback will go a long way into refining this before I roll it out to other games as well.
On the flip side, you can now begin placing work orders for the materials that we have in the system. If theres a material you need and don't see. Add it!
