Trade Commodity


These are items which can ONLY be accquired by trading or PDA missions or POI raiding.
Your task is to find out which Commodity Trader offers these items at cheap prices and find other Commodity Traders somewhere else which buys them for expensive prices. Creating a positive Trade balance.

Note: Trade commodities, regardless of rarity, cannot be put into the OCD at ANY level.

Commodity Trader Location

To give you a hint where a Commodity Trader is located in the Universe, just press M and check the Description.

  • A Wealthy economy can be found mostly in PvP playfields

  • A Sustainable economy can be found in interesting PvE or PvP playfields

  • A Unpromising economy can be found in PvE playfields

Additionally you can assume to have a better economy on planets or really special orbits than in an orbit.

Origin Discount

Additionally certain Origins have different Commodity items they can trade for special conditions at very special locations (look out for Origin locked Stargates or Supergates).

  • Federation: 10% / 30% / 50% better buy and sell price for Robotics Robotics

  • Freelancer: 10% / 30% / 50% better buy and sell price for Ancient Relics AncientRelics

  • Pirate: 10% / 30% / 50% better buy and sell price for Liquors Liquors

The percentage rate is also dependent from the economy level you are in. However 50% is set in Unpromising, 30% in Sustainable and 10% in Wealthy playfields.

NPC Faction Discount

The Commodity Trader are getting their items from the NPC Factions. So the better your NPC Reputation towards Zirax, Polaris and Talon for example, the more likely you get a trade discount!

  • Honored with Zirax: 7% Discount on Weapon & Alien Commodity items
  • Honored with Polaris: 15% Discount on Antique & Component Commodity items
  • Honored with Talon: 30% Discount on Bio Commodity items
