Have you noticed that gear from vendors are almost never good. They only give you one stat and then that stat isn't any good. Vendors should give better gear because it's erasing the point of buying gear when it's so bad. I don't want to farm good gear for the rest of my life. What's your opinion?

The gear from vendors is just enough to get you by until you can win something better. If you want the good stuff ya gotta work for it. Not everything in the game is designed to be easily bought. Working for your goal is one of the lessons the game teaches. It is precisely why some really cool gear is also no trade and only the pirate that won it can use it. When you see someone with it you know that they had to win it in a fight the hard way, not just buy it. Even using a second chance chest is still using this concept as you have to do the fight to get to that chest. It builds character and that is always good.

I don't mean really good gear with powers I just mean ok gear. Like in the bazaar. Some of that gear should be able to be bought from vendors. Vendors are cheaper.

Oh I agree with you on that. It is easier and cheaper sometimes, its's just that one of the things the game is trying to instill in its players is to have goals and actually work for them. Having everything handed to you all the time is not very good for character building. Working for what you really want really makes you appreciate it more and feel better about yourself for accomplishing it.

The Bazaar is actually cheaper than a vendor for common Items that the vendors sell. It's the rare things in the bazaar that are costly. And usually the better items available in the Bazaar are more rare because people buy them soon after they get in the market.
