Mystery Merchants are NPCs who sell and buy special valuable items. Mystery Merchant shops are only open occasionally and they accept only Mystery Market Coins. This type of shops were added in patch 85 in August 2019.
Merchant inventory is random. It usually includes highest level enchanting materials, Pocket Tab expanders and occasionally dragon mount with crit power buff, very fast (330) normal mounts or auto-gathering and loot-collecting pets.
Merchant inventory is limited, there's usually only one mount or more expensive stuff available. When someone buys it, it's greyed out in shop. Also items are limited per account, you can only buy one Pocket Tab expander even merchant has 3 in inventory.
There is announcement when merchant arrives.
However, this announcement is province-wide and you don't get the info if you're not there. In later patches merchant arrival is announced globally.
Merchants stays open 30 minutes in one place.
Merchants have few locations they may appear. Places are not marked on map. Some are easy to found and some not.
Locations[edit | edit source]
- Highwatch in city second level, the Court of Enlightenment
- Allemantheia near Agora
- Velika near Velika North Gate
- Kaiator in chamber next to Link Street
Mystery Merchants in cities have fixed locations and are marked on map. They are not open all the time. These merchants are masked human males.
Five minutes before merchant shop opens goblin Starc, Mystery Market Coin Vendor appears. He sells maximum of 3 coins for 1070 each. Starc appears four times a day in main cities. (He appears around 06 to 08 AM in Kaiator in EU servers. This seems to depend when server was started after maintenance). Order of mystery merchants is Kaiator, Allemantheia, Highwatch, Velika 6 hours apart.
There are also traveling merchants that appear on some locations for some time. They are goblins. One merchant appears in one province. Generally you want to search merchant in towns, camps, dungeon teleportals and other landsmarks.
Province merchant (w/o global announcement) have 5 hours re-spawn timer in the same province but different location. Note: this must be incorrect, merchant sometimes opens in other place just after previous shop closes.
Southern Arun merchants sell very fast normal (non-flying) mounts. Southern Shara merchants sell costume boxes. Northern Arun merchant sells pets, including loot and auto-gathering pets. Northern Shara merchants sell skill scrolls, Relic or Halidoms, infusion material which are generally bad deal. HW and Velika merchants may sell flying dragons. Island of Dawn merchant sells diamonds if you want to convert you coins to gold. Almost all merchants carry few Pocket Tab expanders, partner skill change voucher and Argog Weapon Skin template.
