Same for all items in belvast except for the last item and the first two which have pathetic listing prices. This is an issue. Why has it gone unnoticed for years? What is this? Do you want to put people off of commerce for ever? This is how you do that.

    I don't think safes were ever worthwhile in commercing anyways. I always had to use the swords and whips to level that rating up and it's kinda stuck at 7 because belvast is just boring to commerce :/ Though I have made 32 mil ducts since christmas day so commercing isn't impossible just because belvast is crap :)

    What @Arjune said is true, but all of those goods being well into the negative profits shouldn't be happening. I'm pretty sure in order for that to happen, people need to sell thousands of those goods to each of those regions to force the buying price there down to that.

    I do agree that those prices need to be fixed. There's no reason that every single town should have a negative profit like that... it just doesn't make sense. it's like the entirety of Erinn does not want Belvast safes XD

    Basically the points stated in this thread reflect my feelings. I hate useless things.. The absolute ignorance of nexon to have kept this being an acceptable thing for so long deserves to be called out. This is wrong and neglectful of your own player base. Rather infuriating honestly.

    If it is a glitch, someone will need to file it and find if anything done by players in game causes the price deflation to tank like a stone really quickly. If that is the case, then you really have all rights to be upset.

    But it's also entirely possible it's not a glitch, but a bunch of people deliberately running some unused goods' prices to the ground so other things get a slight price boost.

    I think the price stops being negative for Safes once you get the discount on purchase price for higher merchant ratings.
    Though that'd probably only make them worth a few ducats profit apiece, instead of negative.
    Didn't realize they were that bad though, wow.

    There's the price I get in Mari with r1 commerce mastery and merchant rating level 7 ..... considering you can only carry a max of 8 with a partner pack elephant? You can only get a worthwhile profit selling to the smuggler and thus dropping your rating? .... YUCK

    LF> Commerce revamp .... I'm annoyed that they teased a commerce revamp on the picture they had for Renovation now. I really thought we were getting one after some time... even a GM mentioned a commerce revamp in the Renovation Q&A :P maybe they scrapped it?

    Who knows, but this neglect no matter what the case is truly disgusting. I stand by that.

    The game is probably secretly owned by some obscure chinese textile firm trying to racketeer its Yuan xD

    Welcome to Nexon where the number 1 priority is money and apparently fixing the problems in the games they actually own isn't worth the time, despite the fact that fixes... will probably get them money?
    Yeah, I don't know about this company sometimes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    @Arjune It is probably because MikuV3 is not using Belvast as a stop for commerce. Belvast isn't a favorable stop to do commerce since there's that boat trip (both ways) in the way. MikuV3 is probably referring to the rest of the commerce places.

    Even if that is the case, the fact that the prices are so ungodly low and that even a trip from tara to cobh is more profitable than belvast makes it redundant. I'm not sure if this is actually beneficial or what not but I need answers. For those prices to be so low that it's not useful to trade to -OR- from makes me sick thinking about it.

    The answer is your low merchant rating in belvast

    did you not see my screenshot with level 7 rating and r1 commerce mastery? it's not much better... least not for Safes. and you can only carry 8 of them
