Greetings fellow Traders!

I gotta say Trading is the most fun aspect of this game to me. I'm currently at Prof10 and keep running my wagon as much as I can! My typical route is around Calpheon but it's not perfect as the trade managers aren't always replenished when I'm through.

What level Trading are you and what routes do you guys use?

Currently just going back and forth Calpheon Altinova but that's because I focus more on levelling my horses.

 

For levelling trading short routes with as many items as possible was supposedly the fastest way I think? Which route are you using?

These are my active nodes and my route is as follows:

North Calpheon --> Bernianto Farm --> North Wheat Plantation --> Floring --> North Wheat Plantation --> Florin --> Plantation --> Contaminated Farm --> East Calpheon --> Fales Dirt Farm --> Marni Cave Path --> Keplan --> Marni Cave Path --> Keplan --> Bain Farmland --> Oberen Farm --> South Calpheon --> Gabino Farm --> Cohen Farm and then back to north calpheon. 

I use the professional trader shirt that gives 10% XP (sold from luxury vendors!) and Sute Tea for another 8%. I only discovered these a few nights ago.

As an Artisan Trader (Edan) who mainly just wanted to level/breed horses, seems like you guys have the right idea.

I usually just burn my energy and do daily contribution quests whenever trade goods run out.

As a newish player and new to trading (my route is typically Olivia to Velia to Heidel) i was curious how you guys feel about the system for money making. I know it's worth it for the horse training and breeding but what about money in general and contribution spendage to connect nodes. Would it be worth more to farm crafting mats to sell and or maybe wagons ( i have found that at the very least crafting the trade wagon for sale is a pretty large profit vs just selling the crafting mats.)

So as an example i could sell the trade wagon on my server (assuming it sells of course, haven't actually tried yet) and make around 700k profit. But in general that's kinda dull. Should i instead focus my points into connecting towns for trade? I do at very least plan to make myself a trade wagon and deck it out with some parts before i really decide. Later on i wanna buy or craft a noble and or merchant wagon plus maybe a ship for trading too. The farm wagon works of course but i cant upgrade it so that isn't very fun. Or least i don't think i can.

As a side note: generally my goals in pve for this game are to make as much money as possible while still spending it all over the place. I have 81 contribution points at level 26 and never have any available to spend lol. Which is why i figure i need to focus on one or the other. Trading or Gathering.

 

Thanks for any insights you guys might have.

Velia to keplan is my current route. I can usually pick up tons of trade questa on the way. It's not the best, but it is what I'm doing for the moment.

Velia  > Heidel > Glish and back again. And then > Northern Wheat Plantation > Calpheon when they need to restock, and I fish at each end.

Behold the Moneyshot in all its blingyness.
