+1 It's unnecessary busy work for the player during a trade, if the related skill isn't pooled. It's even worse here in BG3 because we don't have a shared inventory, so we have to move stuff around.
In the last CRPG I played -- Wasteland 3 -- the highest Barter skill of any member of the party would be used, regardless of who was talking to a merchant. I was so glad to see it. It doesn't break immersion to imagine that your most skilled party member in trading is whispering in your ear, giving you advice about the value of things during a trade deal. If they could make a better deal than you, why wouldn't they speak up?
