Search on Snapshot
So I'm going to make an assumption here that the Desktop tool loads a snapshot of the AH into the game. If that's not a thing this idea isn't working.
So I ran into the problem that if I run a search for Transmog stuff I end up with a lot of pages to scan (like 600) which takes a lot of time.
Then I thought it would be neat if you could just run that search on the snapshot ingame which drastically should reduce the time it needs to scan all the stuff.
The way I thought it could work is like this:
1) You select whether it should perform the search by live scanning or by searching the snapshot.
2) If the snapshot option is selected, it will perform the search on the snapshot without querying the Auctionhouse.
3) If the player selects something to buy it actually queries the Auctionhouse to see if it's still there.
4) If yes, offer to buy, if not, too bad.
Obviously the data might not be 100% accurate cause people will buy and list new stuff between snapshots but chances are for stuff like transmog the item you are looking for is still there.
It at least beats accuracy of the results after scanning like 600 pages.
I don't know if that actually would be possible but it certainly would be awesome
This isn’t how the desktop app works.
