New Trade System

With the new 3.5 Erenor Eternal patch, the old trade system is now replaced with a new one. Here are some of the changes.

ArcheAge Patch 3.5 Simplified Trade System Chart

Simplified New Trade System Chart

Trade Outlets
  • Nuia: Solzreed Peninsula, Two Crowns, Cinderstone Moor

  • Haranya: Solis Headlands, Villanelle, Ynystere

  • Auroria: Diamond Shores. This Trade Outlet will only be available when your faction’s base reaches the new rank 4. If the base downgrades, it will lose the Trade Outlet.

At these Trade Outlets, players will be able to sell specialty packs or purchase and sell special Cargo for gold.

PHASE 1: Same Continent Sales (Gold)

Goods crafted are still categorized into 3 groups:

  • General Specialty Packs - Made at regular Specialty Workbenches in zones

  • Merchant Specialty Packs - Made at a Fellowship Plaza

  • Aged Specialty Packs - Larders

 

After crafting any of these Tier 1 Specialty Packs, you can only sell them at a Trade Outlet in the SAME CONTINENT where it was made i.e. Nuian Specialty Packs can only be sold Solzreed Peninsula, Two Crowns or Cinderstone Moor. However, the Specialty Packs must not be made in the same zone as where you are selling them i.e You cannot sell Cinderstone Specialty Packs at the Cinderstone Trade Outlet. There will no longer be traders in the zones not mentioned above. The Specialty Workbenches will still be in all zones.


The pack should be turned in to the Specialty Buyer at the Trader Outlet. The final sale value depends on:

  • the type of Specialty Pack you have made (regular packs, fellowship packs or larders)

  • the maximum value of the Specialty pack you have made (Larders generally have more value than the other 2 type of packs)

  • how many of those specific packs are in stock at the Trade Outlet

The more packs of one specific type that the post receives, the lower the value of the pack. If the Trade Outlet is full, it will not accept new packs at all!

Also, Specialty Packs can no longer be transported across the ocean for resources. This function has now been moved over to Cargo in Phase 2.

PHASE 2: Cross-Continent Sales

Talk to the Cargo Seller and click on "Production Info". It will show you the Trade Details shown above. This is the number of specialty packs that needs to be turned in before they are converted into Cargo. Cargoes are Tier 2 packs.

When the conversion is completed, you can purchase the Cargo from the Cargo Seller with the following requirements:

  • You must be at least level 30

  • You have enough labor and gold

  • You possess a Cargo Certificate. These certificates can be purchased in the Vocation Shop for 300 Vocation Badges.

Make sure that you are buying regular Cargo and NOT Certified Cargo for cross-continent trade run.

Upon purchase, the Cargo will be placed on your back as a trade pack. You can put the packs in your vehicle but you will need to move them across the ocean as soon as possible.

Sell to a Trade Outlet on another continent for Gold

Cargo is now measured by a new mechanic called “profit”. The faster you get it to another outlet, the more money you will make. Once the Cargo is sold to the Cargo Buyer, it will be certified by the Blue Salt Brotherhood. For example, Nuian Cargo can be sold to either an Auroria Trade Outlet in Diamond Shores or a Haranyan Trade Outlet in Ynystere, Villanelle or Solis Headlands.

Sell to Herren on Freedich Island for Dragon Essence Stabilizers

If you wish to obtain Dragon Essence Stabilizers instead, head to Freedich Island and sell the Cargo to Herren.

SAFE TRADE RUN

If you do not have a boat or wish to travel safely, you can use the protected NPC ship. Talk to the Cargo Ship Manager and purchase a Captain's Protection for 5g or purchase it from the Vocation Shop for 1000 Vocation Badges. Then go up the NPC ship and talk to the Ship Captain. This allows you to take the NPC ship to the other continent without getting attacked. However, you can only bring one trade pack at a time on one character. You can also target the NPC ship to see estimated time of departure.

PHASE 3: Charcoal Stabilizers

After the Cargo from a different continent has been certified by the Blue Salt Brotherhood, it becomes a Tier 3 pack; a Certified Cargo. That Certified Cargo can then be moved one final time to a Cargo Exchanger somewhere else on your continent.

  • Nuia: Gweonid Forest, Aubre Cradle, Hellswamp

  • Haranya: Falcorth Plains, Arcum Iris, Perinoor Ruins

  • Auroria: Golden Ruins

These traders only accept goods certified by their continent.

You can purchase the Certified Cargo from the Cargo Seller with the following requirements:

  • You must be at least level 30

  • You have enough labor and gold

  • You possess a Cargo Certificate. These certificates can be purchased in the Vocation Shop for 300 Vocation Badges.

Make sure that you are buying Certified Cargo and NOT regular Cargo for same-continent trade run.

EXAMPLE:

So an example of the whole process goes like this:

  • A Haranyan Specialty Pack is sold at a Trader Outlet in Solis Headlands, Villanelle or Ynystere for gold. It gets converted into Cargo.

  • The Cargo is shipped to a Trade Outlet in Nuia (gold), Auroria (gold) or Freedich Island (dragon stabilizers). Let's say, it is brought to Cinderstone Moor. This Cargo becomes a Certified Cargo. If you bring it to Freedich Island, it ends there.

  • The Certified Cargo can be picked up and sold to a Cargo Exchanger in Gweonid Forest, Aubre Cradle or Hellswamp for Charcoal Stabilizers.

Other Changes
  • The Freedich Island Gold Trader event has been retired. No more clink of coins.

  • Rewards will now be delivered in 8 hours instead of 22 hours.

  • The Reward Rate has been reduced from 5% to 2%.

  • The Ocean Trader has now become the Relic Trader. He’ll still take your ocean related trade packs like normal, but he’ll also take any other trade pack EXCEPT your Cargo and Specialty Packs. Upon receipt he’ll offer you a fixed reward, unaffected by any price adjustments.

  • While Shadow Merchants will still remain in the world, you won’t be able to interact with them anymore. Their role has been moved to the Relic Merchant.
