Sell/Buy Anything from NPC Vendors?

    Hail: In the first several years of the game, you could go to 5 different NPC's, and sell "Crossbows" as example, being bought for and sold for 5 different prices. Part of the game was recalling around, or moongating, to get the best price for the 100 Bows you just made. Players would go to NPC Mage shop as example, see black pears at 6gp each, and sell them on their vender for 5gp each, and so on.

    So, assuming that a duped item can not be sold to NPC's, should they be done over, to allow, "Every Item in the game to be sold or bought by them, and then resold by them?

    You have a Lamp post from Doom, the NPC will buy it from you for 250k. He will then add it to his supplys, and re sell it for 275K. So, the next player goes to Doom, gets a lamp post, knows that NPCs sell them for 275k, and would buy his for 250k, and thus offers it for sale on his vender for 260k.

    Thoughts? The idea is that the merchants could still sell all their stuff, and the buyers could buy anything knowing that it was real, and never be ripped off.

    people will buy up all the lamposts (as per the example but extends to any high end item) and horde them in a locked chest and sell them at inflated prices.

    Nope, that removes player interaction entirely. At that point you might as well just have glowing faces in the walls of your house that you double click every minute to get a random artifact or rare.

    The current system works FINE as long as people aren't DUPING or otherwise cheating. People put things out for a price, somebody buys them, or not. I do think that the vendor fees should be a percentage of the item cost at the point of sale, however, rather than a fee every day. Or perhaps one initial fee and one sale fee.

    ....and get banned for duping?:D

    Edit: come to think of it, shouldn't all the NPC's who hold stocks of 500 be banned, too? Anyone seen any NPC shops removed?
