    In some areas (like the Marketplace) there is a quest you can do (in the case of the marketplace it's the STK chain). After you complete it, many vendors will talk to you slightly differently ("Greetings, Numot. Now that the business in the Steam Tunnels is cleared up, our merchants have agreed to lower their prices for you").

    It isn't by much, 2% sounds about right.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    Thank you...I know about the chat changing but never noticed any price differences.

    The increase is about 5% for selling. Dunno the buy increase offhand.
    You get back 10% of the base price at normal vendors and 15% at friendly vendors. (and 20% ish at pawn brokers)

    Some vendors are always friendly tho and always give the 15%, an example is the portable hole general shop.

    Others require a story line quest completed. Generally these are original release multi-part quests.
    Harbour: The Lost Seekers (aka Waterworks)
    Market: Shan-to-kor (aka STK)
    House P: Some are Tangleroot, some are Threnal Ruins
    House J: Deleras Tomb
    House D: Sorrowdusk - Greymoon/Cult of the Six
    House K: Sorrowdusk - Greymoon/Cult of the Six

    Most newer areas don't have this feature and simply deal only 10%, which is kind of lame. Makes it better to teleport to the portable hole to sell rather then using local vendors, which is annoying as many characters cannot teleport.

    I didn't think both House D and House K use Greymoon/Cult of the Six, so I just checked and House D text indicates it uses Scoundrel's Run (I thought House K used Caverns of Korromar )

    Totally agree with the lack of improving the 10%, so I spend a lot of time in the portable hole with the characters that can teleport (yeah Royal Mask and UMD)

    It might be a good idea to give an idea to new players on what they aiming for since pots etc are a priority when starting out. A cheaper price in pots would definitely have me zerging the quests for the discount

    So I guess the consensus is that 75 favor will not affect ordinary vendor prices, but the so-called reputation quest will (and haggle of course).

    I was under the impression the reputation quest and areas were linked like like this:

    Harbour - Lost Seekers (WW)
    Marketplace - The Seal of Shan-To-Kor (STK)
    House P (One-Eared Bugbear Inn+Delver's Canteen) - assault of Splinterskull (Tangleroot)
    House D (Salty Wench Tavern) - Scoundrel's Run (Three-Barrel Cove)
    House J - Delera's Tomb & Return to Delera's Tomb (Delera's)
    House K (Eye of Kol Korran) - Cult of the Six (Sorrowdusk Isle)

    I must admit, I haven't tested them all myself, but go with what I remember from the Wiki before it went down.
    But I can confirm Harbour, Marketplace, House P and House J.

    Default Silly question, but curiousity killed the cat..

    What I have been wondering is: Does the server revoke your 32 point char build abilities if you TR all your characters? Anotherwards does it keep the fact that you once had/made it to 1750 with a character and allows you to keep making 32 pointers even though you dont have one any longer?

    from feedback I've gotten (ppl cancelling subs and deleting all chars then coming back again), the 32pt is account unlocked when you speak to the Drow in harbour...same for FvS and Drow and Veteran so if you TR that character your account remains unlocked

    Once you earn the favor or buy it in the DDO Store... its stays with your account.

    400 favor with the coin lords gives you access to a feat close to the one that Argonnseen gives you. The feeat gives you + to your Intimidate and Diplomacy skills.....not sure on the plus but i think that it is about a +10 on both not completely posotive on that.

    I TR'd and closing on 400 coin lord again...so I can update this.

    Not sure where I am at with the 12, but I'll double check.

    Been a while, so I should probably go thru this again to see if/what has changed or fill in some things I may have glazed over.

    Updated for those who still reference this after all these years. I even created a handy PDF version for those who like to kill trees.

    Any updates to make or corrections that I need to do, please feel free to PM me here or reply.

    Cheers.

    The House D general vendors sure seem to think it's Scoundrel's Run that grants their discount.

    The House K "Greeter" directs you to Sorrowdusk, so it's not too strange that's the discount chain for them.

    The House D favor vendor offers the Large Wide quiver at 75 and the Large Thin at 150.

    And the more important one, you've got the base prices for the Silver Flame healing listed, not the 50% off rates (500gp for Heal, etc.).

    Updated.

    Thanks +1 for your eagle eyes!
