I've heard buzz about a "grand exchange". Can someone tell me what it is exactly?

Basically they've linked the forems market into the game so people don't have to stand around selling stuff anymore. The new market is located just north of west varrok bank. You can post stuff to sell there & leave it until it sells then you'll be notified to pick up your money from the closest bank. You can also post an offer for an item & will be notified when the item is found. I think it will be good once the market stabelizes after the initial rush.

basically nobody is entirely sure of what the grand exchange is yet as it has not been brought out yet. but, a general idea of what it is is described in the behind the scenes november eddition. this is exactly what it said: (taken directly from runescape news archive, november 1st behind the scenes) "Later in the month, we bring you the 'Grand Exchange'. This new building will be located in the north-west of Varrock and will house a huge new addition to the game: the ability to offer items to buy and sell across ALL servers and to ALL players! You might, for example, go to the Exchange and put a full Barrows set up for sale - then, playing Skullball in Canifis, you might get a message telling you that they have sold and that you can go to the nearest bank to receive payment! The Grand Exchange will allow you to spend more time on the things you enjoy, providing a less time-consuming alternative to selling your items on the Forums or amongst the crowds of Varrock Marketplace." i hope that will help you understand what it is better, because up to now, this is the only explanation of it.
