If you are buying from a merchant and then selling to another for 60% value rather than 50% value....how are you making a profit.

Buy Item A from Merchant A for 100 EC
Sell Item A to Merchant B (that buys at 60%) for 60 EC
Equals at 40 EC loss for you!!!

Now if you want to buy items in one place and then take them to Defari and sell them for 60% value...then that is on you and you are dumb cause you are lossing EC.

For you to make a profit:
Buy Item A From Merchant A for 100 EC
Sell Item A to Merchant B for 160 EC
That is a profit of 60 EC and means that Merchant B bought item for 160% of value.

I personnally have not seen anywhere (execpt Exchange) where you can sell an item for 160% value.

Now if the item was a drop..then it really wouldn't matter if you sold it for 60% or 50% cause either way you are making a profit.
