Just a word of warning! There are two Trade nerfs in KR live right now that's slows Trade leveling a lot.

I suggest to start Trading now if you plan to hit Master 2.

 

From December 15th:

Acquired trade experience has been decreased, when trading goods within 500 meters of its origin. However, the price is the same as before.

 From December 22nd:

When the total amount of purchased trading goods exceeds a certain price, purchasable amount will be decreased. It resets every midnight.

Thanks for the timeline. I knew the changes were active just didn't know when. I've been slow playing this on purpose trying to avoid using all the "tricks" but looks like I just need to bite the bullet and get it done. Ty

The Mini Elephant helped me a lot. Made it from Beginner4 to Artisan 7 in 6 days . Its possible to do without "tricks" (rolling). Just mount your cute little friend and trade everything from Valia Trademanager to the nearby Farms (press Autorun to accelerate faster). Its possible to do it in under 15min (channel switch for Trade reset). After Prof5 take the Calpheon route!

Yeah I have 2 elephants since they came out. Its not that I don't know how to trade or how to do it the tricky ways, its that I've lost desire. I'm at 50% Art 9 atm.  It happened before the change to experience and before the merger, I just stopped wanting to. And those changes didn't help, the reason I don't like it atm is because most of my housing crates are sitting idle in someone elses care and getting 30K points just isn't appealing to me.

Because @Haal is demon spawn.  Thought you knew.

So all I need to do is get an elephant, buy trade items from velia until i'm overloaded and trade them to farms around velia, rinse repeat? 

I'm only like skilled 5 for trading and never bought trade items or did trading routes before.

How is that even possible?

What do you mean how is it possible? I'm sure there are thousands of people who have never touched trading.

Every time I try to sit down and actually level a life skill I end up getting distracted, then drunk, then high, then I just go back to grinding after a nice intoxicated dance break.

Yeah I think it's my fault for assuming you were. I thought you were aiming it as an insult like how is it possible I'm still skilled trader. :P

Basically it was all leveled from trading fish and the trade items found grinding, I never specifically bought trade items and traveled around, which is why I'm still clueless on the matter.

I was planning to do it one of these days but the announcement of Magoria release definitely made me go for it. Already hit Artisan 1 some time ago so it shouldn't be too long to hit Master2..

If you're skilled 5 it's better to start in Heidel and surrounding farms. I moved to Calpheon at Prof 5 to do the same and will switch to Altinova around Artisan 5. In Heidel and Calpheon I gained around a level every hour of trading up to Artisan 1. Only downside to the Calph route is you need to pay more attention. Heidel and Velia is basically alt-tab and do other stuff

Thanks so what is the Heidel route specifically and are they any trade items I should use or are all the same as far as exp is concerned?

My route was basically Heidel > Moretti Farm > Heidel > Eastern Gateway > Heidel > Northern Cienaga > Heidel > Costa Farm > Heidel. Switch channel and repeat. I like to semi-afk so I wasn't always on time with npc's but if you are it should still last around 15 mins with a merchant wagon. Simply start off with the highest level packs available in Heidel until you're done.

Yeah that's about where I am from doing nothing but casually produced crates.  IMO, trading needs some rethinking.  There's just no ..."GAME" there.  It's nothing but mindless busy work that isn't even as interesting as the rest of the AFK-lifeskilling you could be doing instead.  Setting off in a wagon should begin some kind of adventure that then spawns NPC's and mishaps scaled to your level or Gearscore.  There should have to be some actual thought put into the things you buy and where you sell them to beyond just looking at a Chart and buying low selling high.  ...even That little bit doesn't really change your outcome much at all and the STUPID MINIGAME it DOES HAVE... seems a lot more based on RNG than it does on your actual choice to nudge or shout the scale.  ....I've got screenshot after screenshot of it counting as "Balanced" certain times when it looks way off and tons more of it being almost perfectly even yet "Bargaining FAILED" is in big letters.  It's the dumbest crap in the game because it doesn't even have a big random and exciting conclusion chance at the end of it like HorseBreeding atleast has

Basically yes. Overload dosn't matter. Your are limited by 16 slots anyway. Sprint for Elephant is required .

Do you not realise that Trading is some what a competitive lifeskill? more so than others?
