What's to stop me and my friends from simply taking all the spots? You going to have infinity vendor spots for everyone? I don't think so. There's another server that has finite stable slots. Thousands and thousands, but finite. Even with 20 players or whatever they have now, I bet EVERY stable slot is taken, even though it costs money. You price "rental" of such a thing too high, no newbie will use it, price it too low, no newbie will get the chance to use it. It also completely undermines the work that some people put in getting properties close to town to add vendors. Despite that I think @Gideon Jura 's shop is terrible and understocked, that is just because it is not stocked with the things people want to but. But I do not doubt that people still buy and his shop is very profitable. Should his investment essentually be trivialized by vendors in town that anyone can place? As a non vendor person, and one who doesn't get along well (in game at least, irl im sure everyone here is an amazing wizard) with the near-town shop owners, even I think that is lame.
