How are you guys getting info piped from the TP in-game? Did Anet have an API for that?

I think they have a tool to send requests to the server and get the information.
(like the game does if you open TP)

correct me if i'm wrong

edit:
where do i find the vendor entries?
would be great if i can look through a list of them, click them and see what they sell
(so i don't have to look ingame and walk thousends of miles to find something with a cool skin)

Guys why the gems keep getting expensive they keep increasing, what do i need to do in order for them to go lower instead of higher, supply and demand so that means i buy more or i dont buy at all till it goes down?

If you sell more gems the price go down. If you buy more gems the price goes up.

@OmegaX: the TP interface is simply a web page, we just use the same methods the game uses to pull back TP info
@GotDamned: we dont have a good listing of vendors atm, but its on our list of things to do

are you running into any IP issues by storing the historical data or are you pulling the whole trending information from the tp api as well?
