- Bartering EXP is gained every time a barter is attempted.

- The amount of barter EXP gained may vary depending on the items that can be obtained on each island.

- Barter is categorized as a type of life skill and the EXP gained will be affected by Extra Life EXP Scrolls.

- Barter life skill EXP can be checked in the My Information (P) window.

- Barter Ranking can be found in Ranking.

※ Adventurers, please check your Received Mail List (B). The Barter EXP for the barters completed starting from the Barter update till now will be sent by mail.

 

  • ● Changed "Number of Exchanges" to "Parley" for Barter.

- Parley will be consumed instead of number of barters.

- Each barter node requires different amounts of parley. Even if you have barters remained on an island, you cannot barter if you do not have enough parley.

- 1,000,000 Parley is available at the start of every barter. Parley will recover every time Bartering Information is refreshed.

- The amount of Parley required for each barter decreases as your Barter level increases.

- The number of available refreshes per day will reset at 6:00 AM (server time).

[ Developers' Comments ]

Parley was applied for the first-time on the Global Lab and more of our Adventurers gave us their feedback. Using this as our basis, we refocused the overall direction of this system.

First, improvements were made to help gather enough lower level sea trade goods by decreasing the amount of Parley required for the higher-level goods significantly, which previously was depleted with just a few barters. This change, along with the introduction of the new system where higher Barter life skill decreases the amount of Parley required will allow Adventurers to barter even more.

Still, the nerf to level 4 bartering, arguably the most profitable barter where you could get up to 30,000,000 silver at once, from getting up to 3 to just 2 fixed will be maintained. Instead, you can now obtain up to 6 level 1 sea trade goods at a time through bartering. This is to balance the issue where sea trade goods would run out too quickly. By making changes that lead to increased income through more lower level barters, the level of difficulty and profit were adjusted.

Additionally, we made more ways to obtain materials needed to build carracks for Adventurers that dabble in the Great Expedition. We also plan on making changes to lessen the feeling of “doing homework” when building ships. Furthermore, we are preparing blue grade carrack items for our Adventurers in the deep end of the sea.

We plan to improve conveniences and more for this content, please continue to give us your thoughts and suggestions!
