Linked auction houses might come soon

Linked Auction Houses in 1.9 might come, according to Block:
Yes, this is something that players have asked for and something we've wanted to do for a while. We're doing our best to get linked auction houses in the game as soon as possible. There's still some work to do, but the current target is patch 1.9.
(emphasis mine)

Does this mean cross-server battlegrounds as well? One can always hope!

On the WoW paladin forum, someone posted this link, saying it was a link posted on his guild (Vision, Terenas) website.

I have no idea where this came from or who yangos is, but I spent 20 minutes playing with it. :)

PS The weirdest thing about it (to me, anyway) were the TWO 31pt talents in holy.

Some of these auras and seals are showing up on Thottbot searches. Does that imply that they are old beta talents?

Holy poopsmith!

This 1.9 Talent this is awesome!

However! Where's Holy Strike? It's missing from Holy and not in Retribution where is should be. Conviction still references a holy strike benefit...so.... Holy Strike will be a free spell to ALL Pallies?

woot woot! Let's hope.
Also, Linked AHs would be awesome, but not more awesome than linked BGs.

jj, seals such as Seal of Vigor have been rumored for quite some time. It's in the data files, but not put in to the game. Same thing with an updated version of Divine Intervention (a rez you can cast while dead).

I don't think that's leaked talent trees. For example, why would Anticipation be in the Protection tree when one of the two first talents in the entire tree is about getting hit with a critical strike? No synergy or clear goal with that.

That isn't a leaked 1.9 tree, a guy made that during the talent feedback. I remember the purity spell, and the zeal that you couldn't cast on yourself. lol

1.9 is likely weeks away. They are putting a lot into this patch, I wouldn't expect it on test for another 2-3 weeks.

I think what they mean by linked auction houses is placing an AH in the other capitals that currently lack them, and then linking them all up. For example, an AH would be added to both SW and Darnassus and be linked with each other and Ironforge.

Inter-server auction house linkage would be a database programming nightmare, not to mention the fact that you wouldn't be able to mail a majority of the sellers. It would also mess up in-game economics on different sized servers.

Yeah, that was a "suggested" talent tree.

And Mastgrr, in it Reckoning was put into the Retribution tree.

Anonymous,

Redoubt was still in protection, so it's crit based which sucks if you pick that and get any +def skill/gear.

Linked AH's will be as valein described...there will be an AH in Stormwind that has the same stuff as in Ironforge. It's not linked over varios servers.

Also stormwind was a much more popular hangout before it lost it's AH in beta (or alpha) from what I've heard, so plan for SW to be the new place to be.

I, for one, plan to spend a lot more time centered in Stormwind. I like the city layout better, and lore-wise it's more central (with the Humans tending to take a leading role, not to mention the diplomacy racial bonus). If Vir is correct, and SW will become the new hub of activity, I'd like to see them add a small port village to Westfall with a boat route to Theramore Isle.
