    I am the finance minister of Trinic (ATL), I just fired all 10 bottle vendors, rehired them (same spots) in my town. They was at my high price of 25 gold per (I pay 15 gold avg per as they start off at 5 gold each so 5+25/2=15.)

    They are still at the 25 gold mark when I rehired them and logged onto my crafter (since I go AFK often stops me dieing to a faction player in my town).

    Any one else seeing this on other servers?

    *looks to buy a large order of empty bottles*

    Since ur the finance officer try setting the rate (%) to a lower #, not the faction tih rate but the towns interest rate.

    That should correct the problem if I'm not mistaken.

    Finance minister of the city sets the price for the bottles.

    No, the NPC's do. I hire them and they start at there base price. Players buy the goods and every 2 piles (normally items in 500 stacks) the NPC adds 1 gold to its base price. This is reset when the NPC are reset, faction ministers can fire and rehire there NPC's to reset them. This is what I do for my supply :)

    Might be different on other shards, but on siege prices are set by town finance minister, buying out resources only changes the quantity, not the price.

    Bottle venders are different then the reg venders(and ore and wood) but by manipulating the interest rate you should be able to change the price that they start with.

    Granted it has been a while since I bothered to play with faction venders.

    I'll try to log on and have a look

    If you have a GM miner and a GM alchemist, it's pretty painless and quick these days to make your own potion bottles. The dev team recently and quietly changed sand mining so you get sand on every strike while mining in sand, so mining up a supply of several hundred units of sand doesn't take long at all and the sand stacks now too. Get your alchemist a stash of blow pipes and have him stand by the forge and craft a nice big pile of potion bottles. Won't cost you a thing except the cost of the blow pipes, and those are cheap.

    yes you do...

    Real Life takes priority over a game.
    I might be able to play all day with no interruptions, or i might get 30 seconds.
