Trade Packs


I assume if you have been playing ArcheAge you have heard of trading


Trading is the main economic standard in ArcheAge


If you are wanting to make money you are going to need to trade


Here is how you do it


 


 


Starting


To start to make a trade pack you need to know where to craft them


To craft a trade pack you need to go to a specialty workbench which is located in every area


all areas have their own type of trade pack so all trade packs are not the same


 


The materials needed are -


Quality certificate


Basic item


Main item


 


Quality certificates are bought for 50 silver at any general merchant


 


The basic items are


Medicinal powder


Ground spice


Ground grain


Dried flowers


Trimmed meat


 


 


 


Main items are different from every area if you would like to know the recipe press "O" and it will bring up a search bar put the name of the city in the search bar


 


 


 


 


 


Travel


 


"The further you go the more you get"


Travel is the way of the trade packer you master it , you dream it, and you live it


 


If you would like to see the base prices check here  http://www.archeagedb.net/article/Trading_Pack


or you can check the trade info in your folio


 


Travel is broken into two categories


 


 


 1 . Inter continental ( inside the same continent )


No risk


- Can only be traded for gold


 


 


2 . Outer continental (from one continent to another )


Risk


-Can be traded for Gilda Stars


-Can be traded for resources


 


 


Get a donkey


Donkeys are acquired by doing the blue salt brotherhood quest located in Tiger spine mountains in the first cross road or from mirage isle for 5 Gilda


 


Uses for transportation


Airship (Fastest)


Farmcart (Faster)


Donkey (Fast)


Walking  (Slow)


Boat ( only used for sea trading )


 


 


 


Three Key Factors


Friends


 


Always bring a friend pirates are out their in the seas their is always a risk


 


 


Play smart


Always be at your top, always pay attention 


 


Make money


Trade packs are the best way for a free to player to make money you can use that money to get patron

The more common it is, the less you'll make.  There is a different base price for each region based on distance and whatever the devs wanted like freedich island with a high trade in value based on it's location and design to be the center of piracy.  It will fluctuate from there based on how many tradepacks from that region are traded in at that location.  So go far and some place where less people trade that certain pack in at.

I'll rephrase.

What trade packs has everyone been doing? Where are you taking them?

How much do you average? 

This info is good. But some example packs would be awesome info for brand new players to have.

The 2 easiest packs and cheapest are arcum iris spiced eggs, and falcorth snowlion yarn.

Arcum- 50 ground spices, 30 eggs.

Falcorth- 50 medicinal powder, 30 goose down.

These also seem to be the most traded so watch your pricing.

Villanelle or solace are worth the most, if the prices havent been knocked down.

If you have plenty of labor and mats, running between arcum and falcorth will give you faster returns for slightly lower prices.

I do Arcum Iris to Solis Headlands, about 5-6g per runs. Takes me 10 minutes on a Donkey. I usually make 10-15 runs per day, so you do the math :P  The money is more than worth it.
