Questions about Negotiation/False Accusations

Hi Ben/John,

May I know:

1) Does Negotiation really reduce the price of FA?

2) Does Fixer's standings has anything to do with reducing the price of FA?

If it's possible, I would like to know by PM, how does your system calculate the price of FA. Thanks for your time.

Thanks TJ. I guess I have to stop doing favors for Fixer.

But I still have a question to ask, here's the information I have:

1) I have Negotiation level 3 (30 percent off)
2) I have Fixer's standings 155 (assuming the standings after 60 doesn't count) & bonus given after having 30 standings with Fixer) = 60 - 30 = 30 percent off
3) My xp now is 24,793,820

Is the formula:

Cost of FA
= (10 percent of my xp)
= 2,479,382

and the price I need to pay now is $1,683,098. So, the price reduced = 2,479,382 - 1,683,098 = $796,284 & that means:

796284/2479382 = 0.321 percent off

That would give me a conclusion that Fixer's standings doesn't reduce the FA cost, instead if I want to lower down my FA cost, I still can raise my Negotiation skills.

Can you help me to work out the formula, TJ? Thanks in advance.

That is easy enough to find out you have a 3 (trained negation) put on a negation ring (+2) and a negation glove (+1) give you a 6 (the max discount and see if cost is lowered. If not then basically it is what it is and doesnt matter what formula or explanation is given why it just is.

I've tried that and it doesn't get reduce.

Ben, can you run the numbers on prices for people all the way up the experience ladder?
