POE barter system is what I would call fake complexity.
For those of you who have not tested that game, you can basically buy and sell items to vendors using town portals, identify scrolls and upgrade materials as currency. In other words, it is really like having multiple currencies of yen, marks, dollars and pounds with different exchange rates between each other.
It is an unnecssary complexity that adds zero value to gameplay. The only possible reason to like this clumsy way of trading is that you are a currency trader and knows the average market exchange rate between these currencies and are attempting to profit off less knowledgable players.
As for OP, it is just naive thinking. Do you think that if AH is closed down or converted to some kind of barter system, someone will trade their 6% CC mempo for your poison resist mempo + 10 flawless square ruby?
