You are reffering of course to the PLAYER driven auction house, (because npc shops are still the same).

The market changed, some quests were nerfed and so on, you are not really meant to equip r95 gear on 95 anyway, so don't worry much, get into a clan with active ppl, do instances, buy low/sell high, etc, and you will be able to get gear that way eventually. (The social aspect is what keeps the game fun in my opinion)

you haven't provided any example of an item that went up 200% so you will not get any specific answer, 'unable to buy many things' is a bit vague

Keyword: Inflation

TL;DR ? --> just read the bold text.

we have seen such an extreme rise already around 2(?) years ago. Back then it came from an uncontrolled flood of adena hitting the Servers. That Adena was just created without any counter value to it and came from Elcyum Powder that was sold to NPC Grocers. The source of that Elcyum powder was the huge amount of players that started fishing with the newly introduced Fancy Rods, that were much faster then the normal rods. A player that collected 4 Powerfull Fish could exchange those with the Fishing NPC and received 3 Elcyum Powders in return, which was then sold to the Grocer NPC at a price of 2kk. The success rates were pretty good so a player could make a pure profit of 800kk to 1b per week. But, as i said before, there was no real value against that and the NPC just "create" Adena when they buy items from players so there was a huge Inflation of Adena which drove up the market prices at similar rates like now. This was all stopped with the change of the Fish-to-Elcyum exchange rate from 4:3 to 12:3 and later with by lowering the NPC bid price down to 1kk per Elcyum Powder. 

 

Now, there is a new form of "Adena printing" that has no real work value against it. Everyday, some top players pull a minimum 10 b Adena from the Cursed Sword System. Compared to the Fishing-System, there is a difference in the distribution of the Adena, cause with the cursed swords, only some top players get their hands on the "new" Adena. Nevertheless, we all know that this small circle of entitled players sells a huge amount of Adena to external (illegal) Adena Sellers for real money, thus the Adena makes it way to the large player base, flooding the market and driving up prices.

No.

Now people 1-105 lvl become in 1 week. Max 2 weeks. And for all need items. But +12 weapons, +10 sets and its not so easy to make, and its not so fast. Also cant   income in server fast way - b.valakas, b.antharas, seven sings and ets.. End drop... cc.bay, Kama, Balok, Tauti and etc - most popular instances. for 99-102 people.. They now 105+ - so drop penalty for all. Rune price was 35-40kk? Now 90-100kk. And in this way will be 200kk - no farmer right lvl. In this sistem what we have now - prices must to be 2-3x bigger then 6 mon ago. its normal.

Some things to remember when it comes to the market:

1. Prices always skyrocket at the beginning of a new update. That is due to everything from people changing classes, to new quests and promotions, to the rush to remain competitive with enemies and allies, etc. The prices almost always go down, in some cases, significantly lower, a few months after launch. Not always, but usually. 

2. High prices usually reflect item rarity, the seller anticipating the buyer's desire for immediate gratification (which should not be confused with the classic economic definition of demand), simple greed, the overabundance of adena in the game, and buyer ignorance in no particular order. 

3. No one is holding a dagger to your loins and forcing you to buy. Sometimes the best response to high prices is to walk away and only come back when the price favors you.
