Patch 1.0

EHG has just released an update to the Merchant's Guild Item Faction, coming in Last Epoch 1.0 on February 21st! This preview goes into the thought process behind the change and wraps up a bit of information on the Falconer and Warlock. See below for the official post.

Merchant's Guild Update

With Item Factions, you can either join the Merchant’s Guild, which grants access to the Bazaar to trade items with other players, or join the Circle of Fortune, which grants significant item drop bonuses.

We do want to mention one fairly large change to Merchant’s Guild we’ve made since the deep dive. From both the CT Program, and public discussions, there were concerns about item supply within the Bazaar. This concern stemmed from the ability to sell certain items being locked behind Reputation levels. This meant players would not be able to sell many items for some length of time, reducing selling participation.

To ensure a strong item supply within the Bazaar, there is no longer a Reputation level requirement to sell any class of item. Also to promote healthy item supply within the Bazaar, Favor costs for selling items are much lower than buying favor costs, so Merchant’s Guild members can be a bit more free with selling items.

Is It Enough?

This update is certainly a big improvement to the Merchant's guild, but only time will tell whether it's enough to encourage players to trade and participate in the economy as opposed to going Circle of Fortune.
