Quests



You need certain trading levels for some quests but they can also give you large amounts of trading exp too. Take note that some of these quests may be timed though and it is best to exercise caution when attempting them.

For more details on the prerequisites of these quests, see the Quests page.

Shops



For every trading level you get you will be able to buy things 0.5% cheaper and sell things for 0.5% more at NPC stores.

See Shops for price lists of NPC stores to find out what they buy and sell, as well as Locations to find out the best trade route
for you.

Some Guild Shops also have their price lists available.



Below are some important trading levels, which is also information you can gather from the above Shops page.

Bazaar



Market stands can be set up at Echtin, Port Barin and Tropi. If you have equipped a Small Stand or Medium Stand, the Market or Bazaar will contain a link allowing you to set up the stand. The items you would like to sell have to be in your inventory, but take note that you cannot equip a wagon with a stand. Thus, it is not a good idea to be overburdened.

You first select which items from your inventory you would like to sell. A Small Stand allows you to select up to five different types while a Medium Stand allows you to select up to eight. You then set the price for each and receive 1 Trading xp per min, pausing only when you reach a botcheck. You cannot do anything else while the stand is running, e.g., work on a different task, travel to a different location, or click on the town name as well, which will close the stand.

However, if you log out or reach a botcheck after setting up the stand, it will continue to operate until you log back in or click your botcheck, although you will no longer receive the 1 xp per minute while offline. When the stand is closed, you will receive a message with a market report, listing the details for each sale. You gain 10 Trading xp for each sale, unless your customer has already traded at that town.
