There has been complaints about the lag in Plane of Knowledge for as long as I can remember, this always gets worse when the NPCs and decorations are added for the anniversary. In beta we have Ngreths Den for doing Tradeskills away from everything else so I thought it would be nice if live servers had something similar rather than going to Plane of Knowledge to do them. I don't think adding the Den to live servers would be a good idea, as we don't want Beta NPCs accidentally appearing on live. Ideally the zone needs to be reasonably small with few decorations, so it doesn't get laggy and also easy to get to. I've listed 5 zones I think would be good as zoning in/out points along with a couple of suggestions for what the zone may look like. Suggestions for Tradeskill Hub zone Original Baazar (reasonably small with 2 large open areas from what I remember) Copy of CSHome (players have requested a way to see what it looks like, this might be ideal) Zone available Once Planes of Power unlocks (I think it was Niente that said CSHome had a similar look to Halls of Honor so this would be a good fit for lots of reasons) How to get there Add a door from the standard Guild Hall Add a placeable door for the Housing Guild Halls Add door to Baazar Add door to Guild Lobby Add door/book/portal from Plane of Knowledge Layout Try and do it logically, a lot of Tailoring items require Smithing so put them near each other, the same for Baking and Brewing, rather than the other side of the Tradeskill area. Vendors Add a copy of the vendors we currently have around the small bank area (including a banker & parcel merchant) All Tradeskill containers (would be nice if the cultural ones were available too) Add vendors with all the TS books Add some new vendors with the items that can only be purchased in other zones, ie Abysmal Sea, Crescent Reach etc. After an expansion has been out X amount of time add a copy of the TS vendors to the TS Hub. (Heading to Stratos for just one or two items is a pain).
