    Ok, here are a few things I think NPC Vendors should sell.

    First off, the reason being is that they are consumable items and it would provide gold sinks to help take gold out of the economy.

    Alacrity Scrolls - Sell for 1m each. Yes it is pricey but honestly only the rarest go for 1m and this would allow you to buy them. Right now with fishing being hot you can't find any. You can do t-maps to get them for free or you can buy for 1m. They are consumed and thus it is a good gold sink.

    Skill Tokens - Buy 80 skill in any skill. Call it intense training token or whatever. 5 mil each. You could buy 5 alacrities (See above) and get there pretty easily but that would take like an hour. For 5 mil - get 80 skill. Basically a one use skill frag.

    Property Removal Potion - Rub it on an armor or weapon of choice to remove one slected property. 750k This would allow you to remove that one property on a good item that you don't want. Say an Ecru Cit ring with Physical resist or something. Or Reflect Dmg from a shield etc..

    I'm sure we could come up with others....

    Create 8-10 items like this and it will provide a way for more gold to escape the economy and keep inflation down.

    I think thats a pretty cool idea, it will never happen though EA is convinced people buy their adv char tokens and not the hundreds of duped ones.

    Interesting. Though property removal no unless it's 100mil per property. Or doesn't work on imbued items and can't be imbued afterwords.Which makes it pointless anyway.

    Alacrity scrolls 1mil well this sets a set price the fishing scroll is currently 2.2mil to 3.8mil range cause of it's popularity. Animal taming 1.2mil cartography 1.5-2mil and lockpicking 2mil. If npc scroll sells in a unlimited quantity then the price has to be set at a much higher rate to not undercut player venders and promote hunting for scrolls instead of instant gratification.

    Skill tokens 80 in any skill for a mere 5mil? Nah advance tokens are 18 mil and up. To be able to pick and choose a skill on a character is infinetely better than a advance token. No less then 50mil.

    Remember anything a npc sells is a unlimited dupe so the price of that item should be so high to deter foever floods in the market.
