Gulfing traders are mannish traders of the Near Harad faction. They can only be found in their respective market stalls in the bazaars of Gulfing towns. The blacksmith and farmer, in addition to the market stalls, can also be found in smithies and farms, respectively. The barkeeper spawns exclusively in taverns.

Only five market stalls form a bazaar. So you won't be able to find them all in one place, but will probably have to travel quite some time, if you want to find a specific one.

These traders were all added in Update 34, and are one of the five types of traders, that replaced the so called Southron traders (or Near Harad traders), that were in the game before. They are different from normal Gulfings in the fact that they all have a coin in one hand and a tool of their respective business in the other.

Behaviour Edit

The traders stand around in the market stall and wait for customers. They will trade for silver coins and exchange your money for larger or smaller variants.

They normally are passive NPCs but will attack if provoked; once provoked they will attack you with a tool of their trade.

TradingEdit

The Gulfing traders will trade with anyone who has positive or neutral Near Harad alignment. They sell various goods according to their profession. They will buy what they need, to do their job properly.

The traders will only buy or sell a certain amount of items before they will stop accepting that type of goods. After this happens there is a cooldown time before they will trade this item again. Even the complete set of trades will change after you trade more wealth with a certain trader. In this case, the new set will be unavailable for a short while, and then reopen.

Trading with any of the Southron Traders, no matter which sub-faction they belong to, will earn you the achievement "Desert Riches".

Here is a list of which professions can be found:

Price listsEdit

Items sold - Below are tables of values for each item that the player is available to purchase from the respective trader. Use this tables to find out if your trader is giving you a good deal or not.

Items bought - Below are tables of values for each item that the player can sell to the respective trader. Use this tables to earn more money by only selling when the prices are high. You will not be able to sell every item to every trader as not each trader will want to purchase every item listed below. Note that they only buy undamaged tools.

Speech BankEdit

All Gulfing traders, except for the blacksmith, farmer, and bartender, have the same speech bank. These traders talk about the lands nearby and their wares. They encourage you to sell and buy from them, provided you have the proper alignment.
