Does anyone know what it is supposed to do or if it is a broken skill. It does not change prices so I cannot really see of what use it is?

You can haggle with this skill => offering less money and look if the trader accepts.

We all love a good haggle. Though with nearly unlimited funds, what's the use spending skillpoints on it?

Ask the people who were complaining about the lack of gold before the 1.4x patches.

No use living in the past, Raze
Though I suspect the Larians will be changing the availability of cash, since it renders some of their skills obsolete, currently.

I personally think the sheer lack of available skill points renders many of the skills obsolete - but that's just me

If so, I'm sure another faction of as-yet-unheard-of fans will arise to complain about the drop in gold availability.

Hear ye, hear ye - again a topic I wouldn't take wagers up against, Raze

Well you can count me in the ones that would complain. I think that the money amounts in are just perfect. In early in the game I found myself starving (for portions) and wishig to have some more money. And since I hate to cheat, I died so many times that I lost count. And one more thing : Money is very usefull to unlearn skills. I donīt know what I would have done with the broken skill of lockpick in which I did the mistake to invent 2 skillpoints! Untill is fixed I would have only two choices : Either to start all over or play with 2 skillpoints less.

I agree with Lucretia.

The cost of unlearning skills that have become useless is often prohibitive, and at the very least I think most of us will need/want to unlearn two or three skills over the course of the game.

I don't think drastic reductions in the amount of available cash is a great idea for this reason.
