Trading guide by Evilgenius1

Introduction

Always wanted to be a millionaire? Invest some time in the trading skill and start extorting, ehm I mean trading items to your fellow Syrnians.

Training the skill

Studying is the only way to increase your level. Your first lessons will be in the trading school in Rile (or Hooks Edge if you're a pirate). You can stay here until level 10. After that you will have to move on to the University of Unera.

Name Location Req level to study Maximum level you can study
School Rile - Remer Island 0 10
University Hooks Edge - Skull Island 0 40
University Unera - Dearn Island 10 25
University Xanso - Mezno Island 25 40
University Kanzo - Kanzo Island 40 50
University Maadi - Anasco Island 50 75

Studying is not free. Every lesson will give you 20 xp and for that you will pay a fee. The first lessons will cost 2 gold pieces (gp), but that price increases according to your trading level. You can use our trading calculator to see how much gold pieces you need to invest to reach a certain level.

Player shops

Once you have decided you want to be a shop owner you will have to increase your trading skill. At level 1 you will only be able to sell 16 items in your shop. Every next trading level will increase this number. You can use our Shop slots calculator to see how much slots you can fill at a certain trading level.

Trading posts

Besides selling things in a shop you can also trade directly with other players in the various trading posts. Most islands have one tradingpost.

Cave of Trades

Or you use the Cave of Trades (CoT) to put your items on auction. After setting a minimum sale price anyone can bid on it during 6, 12, 24 or 48h. After the end of the auction you will receive a msg confirming the sale and receive the gp in your pocket. The buyer will automaticly receive the items in the inventory. If the item was not sold you will also get a message and you will have to return to the CoT to retreive your item.

The maximum minimum price is determined by your trading level. At trading level 1 you can not set a minimum sale price over 500 gp. At higher trading levels it is possible to set a reasonable sale price for the more expensive items. It will also increase the number of items you can auction and bid on. Use our CoT calculator to learn more.

Buying

Sofar the selling of items, but how do you find an item you want to buy? You could take a look in the CoT (check our Mobile cave of trades!), use tradechat or click on every shop hoping you find what you need. Regarding the clicking on the endless list of shops there is an easier way. Once again you will have to invest into your trading skill.
