I started EQ. I got my alchemist to over 240 and find that I can buy most potions cheaper from an alchemy NPC than I can make it!! Even worse, some potions require looted items that aren't a problem for alchemy merchants. I don't see how I can make money with a trade. Am I missing something? If this is true, why hasn't SOE/Daybreak changed this years ago? The sad part is that this is so easy to fix. Daybreak simply can drop the prices of alchemy ingredients, and other ingredients for other trades, to make the mastercrafted products more desirable and profitable.
