Vendor price errors

Post by Chrisko » Mon Aug 28, 2017 1:33 am

People mention this once in a while, and they are easily confirmed by wiki/history, BUT the number of incorrect prices are quite substantial.

This pricing issue adds up to quite a large sum over time, and can be a major factor in players being able to afford upgrades/spells for their first jobs.

Is this something we need to start listing one at a time when we find it, or is this something that can be compared/contrasted to an entire known correct database. I feel that if this had to be done one at a time the amount of work would be staggering.

Thanks,
Chrisko

When the server started we presumed all item prices were correct. Unfortunately there were at least 20 or so items which were used to exploit by characters that are now banned. We fixed these items but we had an issue on our hands, just how many items resold for more than what their purchase price was? I'm not looking at the DB now but there are thousands of items in the system. So we had to make a choice, either leave current resale prices where they are and just wait for the next exploiter or take proactive measures and punish everyone by lowering the resale price of all items significantly enough that most if not all item resale prices should be below the exploit threshold. We took option 2 and low and behold there have still been one or two instances of items being exploited (which said chars were banned for as well.)

Due to this we are willing to increase the resale price for items players farm for money. We ask that you try to keep bug reports short and to the mobs you farm as this is a tedious task.

Also because item sale prices are often in scripts and the resale prices are in the DB we do not have an easy way to compare them to the prices on the wikis.

**If you want to go the extra mile and make our job a little easier then include the itemID for the item u want the price changed for in the list, IDs can be found here (it is the first number in parenthesis): https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Darks ... _basic.sql
(use underscore "_" for spaces in your search)

A problem with making a bug report here for specific items is that we would be telling everybody what items we are farming, and if lots of people find out, it might make farming more difficult.

Does this include things like beast/bird blood that were nerfed by SE to combat RMT? iirc it was well after ToAU came out when they nerfed the price on these. Or are you looking for things that don't sell for what they do on retail servers today?

This is for all items that can be sold to vendors. Bird blood has already been addressed: http://kupoffxi.net/viewtopic.php?f=15& ... t=bird#p79

We decided to go with the more current price for bird blood for many reasons

Please search before posting, do not duplicate

Thank you

Will the items listed in this thread be fixed or should they be reported again?

Lanolin is one that I asked about on IRC a while back. Wiki says 680-697, but it vendors for around 100 iirc. Only dropped by a few mobs, but it makes farming rams a little more rewarding.

Please disregard previous comment regarding lanolin, as it has already been mentioned in the other thread. Sorry for the dupe.
