Since, hitting 75 points of Free Agent favor I have been repairing at the guy in the harbor next to the Town Cryer, (the Free Agent guy who sells you +2 Heal/Repair/... kits).
I've been told that he is less likely to give permanent damage and is cheaper, though I have not verified either of those statements.
This weekend I hit 150 Free Agent favor and his repair tab has disappeared, though he does offer +4 items now?
Someone, showed me the repair guy in the dessert, but he sends me to his apprentices.
So, where do you guys repair? And does it make a difference?
