I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this in the past - or someone else did anyways - and, unfortunately, nothing came from it - so I'm throwing it out there again.

When composing and having little to no gold on hand, you get a " you do not have sufficient gold to create this potion". Whilst this is obviously accurate, the message is, not to put too fine a point on it, as much use as an ash-tray on a motorbike.

For the player to GET that message, the game obviously knows how much gold is needed - so rather than just saying "you aint got enough gold on hand", how about actually TELLING the player how much extra gold he needs to make the potion(s)

Eddie Izzard : The National Rifle Association say that guns don't kill people, people do. But I think the gun helps, you know ? I think it helps. I think just standing there going "BANG" - that's not going to kill too many people, is it ?

 

I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but it seems that everything I eat lately turns to poo ...

But I think a better way would be to simply have the money taken from the bank (as is done for buff market). Same should apply to auction house too. Auction house gives the message of "you need X more gold to make this purchase" but that amount is always incorrect, because it doesn't factor in the gold at hand.

Nope. PvP Players need the window for gold theft.

That's logical, but then the buff market should also keep it strictly to gold at hand. And market notification is still incorrect. If I have 400 gold, and the item is 600, it always says I need 600 more to make the purchase.

I've just noticed that the FSH now informs you of the cost - thanks so much Pointy :)
