I, like many others, have used faction reagent vendors to supply my crafters with a steady supply of reagents to keep my vendor stocked with smoke bombs, enchanted apples, scrolls, and other sundries. Now that faction vendors have disappeared I find it extremely cumbersome to restock reagents. Not only is the price higher, but buying the reagents is insanely time consuming. Price: Normal price for ginseng is 3 gp. On a faction vendor it is 2 gp. If I buy 500k gensing that is a 500k price difference. If you think this is a good place for a gold sink, that's fine, I'll just pass that cost on to my customers. The real problem is that normal reagent vendors are not near a bank so buying thousands of reagens at a time is even more time consuming (running back and forth to the bank with heavy loads. One exception is Luna where the vendors are at the bank. Problem is that there are only 5 vendors selling all of the reagents. (one herbalist sells some, but not all of them) It was common to have ten faction reagent vendors at a bank. this was much better as it literally takes several hours to work up the quantity they sell to maximum. Can we have some sort of compromise here? On my shard the consumables I sell are available in part because of the convenience faction vendors provided. I am one of two regular suppliers of enchanted apples and the only vendor of apples sold in bulk quantities on a regular basis. I sell 3 to 4 thousand apples per week. Just apples. That's 21000 to 28000 ginseng per week for one item on my vendor. Please consider not making it more difficult and/or more expensive to buy reagents. Thanks.
