I wouldn't mind any sort of reduction in the base tax. 150k sale turns into like 95.7k? idk still a bit of a reduction there.

Tbh listing a Liverto for 9.X Mil nets you 6.X Mil.

Greedy little Shai profiting 3 Mil a sale. Its a conspiracy, they're using our money to fund weapons of their own.

Shai Armies. World Domination.

I'm scared.

It's extortion! 

There has to be a way for players to lower this value.

So since we are b2p and we dont have premium sub to lower AH fee to 10% we want 10% for all, because 30% is to HIGH!!! (sorry for my bad eng) :D

The reason taxes are high is because that tax is supposed to be paid to the Guild that controls the region/node.  Once Guild vs Guild sieges are enabled, you'll see why this is really important.  It's a huge incentive for organized world pvp and adds incredible value for fighting a war to control regions within Black Desert.  Needs to remain at 30%.

Edit: I just want to emphasize, that this tax is going to guilds.  So striving to be a powerful guild is a big deal and adds to the world politics between rival guilds.

The high sales tax on traded items is an amazing method for fighting inflation, it is just fine. In games where currency is generated freely and there is not a fixed amount of money in circulation this is one of the best gold sinks, which also scales with inflation to keep it in check and maintain a healthy economy.

A change to the tax will cause even worse issues.

Tax on market only restrict silver movement, it does very little to reduce inflation. Too high tax will actually accelerate the inflation since the silver is not generated by the marketplace simply moved. Less silver movement merely mean those who make silver end up with more in their pocket to raise the price of whatever they specifically want.

guild owning a territory do not get the 30% but the 5% extra on top. Every player currently pay 35% taxes not 30% (30% market tax and 5% local tax)

Guilds only get 5% of that tax, the 30% left over is a gold sink, it was viable in KR because you had the option to only have 15% tax but 35% is just too much lol, it adds so much weight to upgrading gear it's real

Pfft what does it matter, it's not like people can undercut you to the point where you are selling at 1 silver above cost price.

It might feel like you are losing a lot of silver in tax but I am sure the game is geared that way. If the tax goes down to 10% all other item prices should go up 20%.

This. This is prolly the most true reason to keep the AH tax. If we start removing reasons to keep on PVP and GVG'ing this game isn't going to last. If your not in a guild join one and see what the benefits are like.

Um what? Every trade transaction except potions goes through the Trade Post. Every item that is traded removes 43% of its value from the economy. Considering virtually everything you could want to buy with silver is on the trade post it is a huge gold sink that scales with prices, it does a great job fighting inflation and removing silver from the economy. Vendor items are a miniscule gold sink compared to the trade post.
