So I had my suspicion that same phenomenon will happen and here and soon enough with a fast trip to npc I was right. Many will all ready be aware of it I'm sure but for those few guys don't notice it or don't bother to look around. What I am talking about is for the shops buying materials on prices way less what you could sell them on the npc. That could be happening because people would like to craft something very cheap or resell the materials and all that is fair practices but what I am afraid happening is most of those players turn the materials in to the npc for fast profit and that's imo wrong... So yeah keep your materials for later only they will increase in value as people will want to craft B and later A grades or try to find the fair priced buy shops In any case seeing shops buying for example Thread for 30 or less adena when npc buy for 45 adena Durable braid and silver nuggets for 100 adena buying shop when npc buy for 225 adena well yeah take extra time to look around please.
