"... I consume whatever results in the highest cost trade pack turn-ins ..."

How do you calculate this? Do you have to run around to individual traders or can you see it some other way?

Loving your Archeage posts, they are gold.

Hi Adam and thanks very much. There's a Trade Info option in the Vocation menu (third icon from the right / lower right of your screen). Using this you can see what percentage is currently being paid for particular combinations of trade runs. The maximum pay is 130%.

So for example, if you have materials for Halycona to Gwen Forest and Biscuits are trading at 110% and Yams at 128%, go make yams. Being equal distances, the higher % paying trade pack is the one to go for in that case.

However, if they're different distances, such as Olive Oil out of Lilyut at 97% but is furthest so should pay more but Figgy Pudding fro White Arden is at 130%, I'd do White Arden instead. It's a matter of distance which yields the highest payout + the turn in percent which is based on how many other players are doing that same turn-in at the time.

There's also a trade pack calculator which tells you the base turn in amount but is not good for calculating profit as it's assuming all materials at 0 cost. However, until you know the base fees for the various combinations, it's very useful (http://eloth.org/tradeprofit/). Enjoy.


You're a legend, that's extremely useful. Thanks very much for taking the time to write that out for me.

You're welcome. :-)


Do you know if it's possible to get the yata/bear mounts and pets from their pens? Or can they only be attained by raising the animals individually?

Alysianah aka Saylah

Absolutely, can only come from breeding them individually, will not happen in pens.


Thanks a lot. Wonderful blog!
