Vendor Changes, is there still a point?

    My group has recently returned to the realm of Britannia and we have all notice an extreme change in the vendors. Not only are the prices very high but some items no longer appear to be for sale or if there is a vendor, they are empty shard wide.

    Is there a reason behind this?

    I was hoping to set up some vendors to made some gold back to get re-established but not sure if it is worth it or what is the best things to start selling.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Vendors are still a great way to make gold. The best items to sell that are easy to obtain are resources, whether leather, ingots, lumber, or any other type of consumable. You can also group up and run Peerless and Doom to get ingredients and artifacts. Just remember that advertising is key to running a successful vendor house.

    well kind of off topic i started a big vendor house in tokuno
    called Tokuno Mall west corner
    i try and be fare but i want some advice from someone who has ran a vendor mall for along time
    the prices might be a little to hi or to low but I always want to keep it running
    perhaps you can place a vendor there and let me watch what you do with yours

    If you want to get some increased business, price your things for a lil less that what theyre sold at in Luna.

    Mark runes to your establishment, and drop em around high-traffik areas.

    But yea, resources are your best bet. 120s are good too if you do champs.

    Thank you all for you suggestions.

    I have run many a successful vendor mall in the past, before I left we had one in Luna on the corner, I just noticed that there seems to be only a limited type of items now sold and they are extremely high.

    Well....we'll give it a shot. If it doesn't work, no harm no foul.

    I just wondered what all we had missed in the 8 months we've been gone.

    My Vendor Is located at the north corner of luna to the left of the tiny house. It is always restocked with 125 items of high end goods mainly from idocing and strong boxes, I have to wait for one item to sell before I can put another on. Any ways if your looking for a good vendor try that one the name is []*[]HIGH-END[]*[] Has a Black Helm And Sigil Armor In The Front Row. In My Opinion I have yet to see another luna vendor compare to it Other than my guild mates GAU's Vendor Which is Located at same mall Wearing all black in the back row.

    Best way is to find similar items in luna say PS, Resources,Arties find the adv. price of those items then mark them 25-50% cheaper than luna. most items in luna are not worth the gold asked for em. Then mark and drop runes all over the place, drop gates advertising your mall for an hour or 2 during peak hours.

    I had a luna vendor I kept my prices so low I couldnt stock fast enough I put 10 items or so on a day it was gone before I came home from work 90% of the time. I managed to keep my prices soooo low and still pull a huge profit due to super fast turnaround. as an example If i had a 120 archery scroll it would be up there for about 4-5m, 120 swords 3m, 120 mage 10m, exc,exc
