      Not the fault of the wiki here, but the in-game tool-tip that says items are 10% cheaper/more expensive per point of bartering is not correct. The real number is a hair above 4% (I'll provide math in a reply below if you want the exact formulas). As an example trying to buy 600 gold 'Medium Intelligence Potion' at Bartering level 2 costs 600 gold. Equipping something to increase bartering to level 3 (from level 2) the new cost ends up being 576 gold. 24 gold cheaper which is 4% cheaper and certainly not 10%. This has been checked against other items and the 4% value holds (although subject to rounding).
