Travelers & Merchants

Special Event Travelers and Merchants


Merchants offer quests which on completion instantly give you rewards and affinity towards that merchant.

Quest items can only be turned in if they are Looted

Some quests are currently unavailable in-game, as they are for an out of rotation seasonal merchant. There is no information about if this questline will come back, but it can be viewed on the Past Quests page.


After gaining 75 Affinity with a merchant, they become Friendly towards you instead of Neutral.
After gaining 150 Affinity with a merchant, they become Loved by you instead of Friendly.

At higher relationship statuses they can reduce the price and provide higher rarity equipment.

Each tier in relationship status reduces the price of the trade by 10%, rounded to the nearest integer.

Items that can be purchased and crafted have been adjusted according to merchants' affinity.


Merchants offer crafts after you've achieved a certain level of affinity.

The Alchemist, Armourer, Leathersmith, Tailor, and Weaponsmith each offer crafting services.
The Treasurer offers crafting services, but does not have any items to craft yet.

In general, crafts unlock at the following affinity levels:

Common crafts unlock at 25 affinity.
Uncommon crafts unlock at ? affinity.
Rare crafts unlock at ? affinity.
Epic crafts unlock at ? affinity.
Legendary crafts unlock at ? affinity.

Sell Prices

Merchants will buy your weapons, armor, and cloaks (but not jewelry) at the following gold rates: 1 | 2 | 3 | 6 | 10 | 20 | 30 gold, multiplied by the number of slots the item takes up.

For example, an Uncommon Leather Cap (2x2) would sell to a merchant for 3 x (2x2) = 12g total.

Note that this is specifically for Weapons and Armor. Other Equipment, Miscellaneous and Treasure items are priced differently.

How to Trade

Instead of selling your items to Merchants or Travelers for low gold, you can sell/trade your high tier items in the Trader's Guild with other players.

However, before you are allowed to trade, you need to meet the requirements given by Trade Master.

  • Initiation Fee: 25 Gold
  • Trading Post Cost per trade: 15 Gold
  • Marketplace Cost per trade: 5% of the Selling Price or 15g, whichever value is higher.
    • Items will be listed for 7 days before expiring.
    • After a listing is successfully sold or it expires, you have 7 days to collect your gold or items.
