I've had this problem a lot. I was going to let it slide for a while as it was only robbing me of cash for lack of quality on items, but I've now completed the fourth of Dessiral's bounties and find myself with four unique items with no special properties and no real value. I couldn't be totally certain but it seemed to kick in with v3.0x. I'm only playing in normal mode and I think I only have the "extra 5k" and "bonus skills" blessings in effect. Is there any prospect of this getting sorted out because at this rate I can't see how I'm ever going to able to afford one of those pimped up super yachts that I've had my eye on!
