PSA: Trade Distance Bonus Percentages Chart

55 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

UPDATED HERE:

Made to help out the community, here are the bonus %'s for various trade runs.  If a field is blank, I haven't done that route yet but will update the chart when I do so.  I do not have the smaller trade nodes listed, just each village/city/town.

You would think you would just care about the biggest distance, but remember that trade exp comes off of profit.  So this chart will let you quickly figure the profit based on distance and in game of course it tells you the profit based on sales.  So a shorter run might be more profitable if the destination is paying more than the longer run.

Hope it helps

No problem, but do bear in mind that Buy and Sell prices matter a good deal as well.

You mean like if you zig zagged from Trent to Velia? No, that doesn't change the % distance bonus.

My % from Velia to Glish is 23%, not 15.

Does this apply to fishing as well @Archaegeo?

It applies to anything you take to a Trader from another zones.  So a silver coin from trent would be 32% distance bonus in velia

My % from Velia to Glish is 23%, not 15.

I just double checked, took an item from velia to glish, 15%

Thank you. At least now I don't have to worry about not bothering to take my fish to Heidal from Velia.

Thanks for this! As someone who loves the trading system (and also loves Excel spreadsheets) I'm going to find this very useful.

I was taking a look, though, and it seems like the chart is more or less symmetrical along the diagonal, which makes sense (the distance bonus between city A and B should be the same regardless whether you sell at A or sell at B). BUT I did notice a weird trend/discrepancy. See attached.

Buying from Moretti and selling at Moretti generally have very different values. No significance to highlighting, was just doing it to make it easier to pinpoint values that were different.

It didn't seem consistent, either. In some cases the numbers were better buying at Moretti, in some cases they were better selling there, depending on where you bought the item / where you sold it. Is this a clerical error or is it really the case that Moretti behaves oddly in trade?

Yeah, was just a very bad transcription error by me from the horizontal to the vertical, ill correct it, thanks for the catch.

Updated the chart to fix Moretti line and colored it for visability

Added the Google Sheet for posterity -- Will give access to you Archaegeo if you wish (although I am pretty sure you have a sheet out there somewhere :) )

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1d6A2vY-0yUnOPWvRE7AeK6_GPFltgIPEVINx5_I765o/pubhtml?gid=0&single=tru

 

Thanks for the data, and I will update the sheet if you post data here (I am too noob in-game to fill the un-fielded values at the moment)

Updated Ilya to Heidel value (131%)

Best use of this?

Go AFK fishing at night in ilya and turn in all the fish to the trade npc in Trent.  Nets you at least 150k a night.

I don't know what kind of AFK fishing you're doing but... AFK fishing nearby cities/towns without any distance trade nets me 750k-1mil a night.  I usually get about 4-5 relics.

Same here, fish alone get me at least 650k from a single inventory if I get them near Velia and sell them in Trent.

At least applies to lower level fishers though, even at a low level I think 150k is doable. The higher your skill and better rods/inventory, the more you can make in a single run.

Yeah, just using thick pole, assuming no 125k fish and no relics, just 20k golds and blues, afk for 6 hrs.

Thanks, great guide for someone learning the ropes of trading! :> I've got a small issue though where Calpheon city doesn't show up on price quotations for the Calpheon region. Is anyone else having that problem as well? All the other nodes/towns in the Calpheon region are dislayed with the exception of Calpheon city. Just wondering if this is a bug or I'm missing something.
