- This article is about the merchant service. For other uses, see Merchant (disambiguation).
A merchant is an NPC that buys and sell items, such as identification and salvage kits, as well as more exotic commodities, such as sweets or alcohol. Merchants will also sell the applicable key for the region they are located in. Unlike traders, merchants sell their wares at fixed prices, which do not vary according to supply and demand. In Factions, there are Faction merchants that will only provide services to certain players in outposts and under certain circumstances in explorable areas.
Usually, a merchant will charge double the item's value. For example, Vial of Dye [Gray] would cost 50 at the merchant, while it can be sold back for 25 . Some items, such as quest items (except for Kilnn Testibrie's Greaves, Crest, Cuisse and Pauldron) or weapons from presents, are not accepted by merchants and so cannot be sold.
Merchants can normally be identified by the word [Merchant] after their name.
