In Warband I loved to trade first to collect insane amount of money. Then I never have to worry about being poor again. I used an Excel-sheet to mark some prices and get some raw data. If you want to play like me and want to just spend 100 days jumping from town to town collecting load of money, keep reading.
Is trading best way to play?
If you want to be the ruler of the world without lowering difficulty. Yes.
If you want to play for fun. No.
In fact I’m going to warn you. Trading play style might get boring. You will just jump from town to town buying and selling. Literally. No interesting fights or castle invasions.
When should I end trading?
That’s the hardest question. This is up to you, if you want to play just for the fun of trades, go ahead and do it. But after a certain point factions will go nonstop war with each other. That will affect the prices an they will go up like crazy. You should be able to collect at least 500,000 denars before that. It should be more than enough not to worry about money ever again.
Can’t I just follow games own green and red prices?
If you want to do so. After gathering the data I found that my values are pretty close to games green/red price values.
Every mule you find! I had 100,000 inventory space before I stopped trading and started actually playing the game. Remember that the more troops you have the faster you move once mules start to slow you down.
Data in sheet
How is data collected?
Data is collected by the price that town is buying. If town was out of stock, I sold them one of each missing goods. Quit trading screen and reopened. Then typed in the price. I know this might make it less accurate but its the only way to find out prices in places that will never get the good to sell.
Is the data accurate?
Mostly yes, but not always. Data is collected from my first 100-150 days. After this game becomes endless war and prices go up. Also each time you start a new game things may change.
Should I follow BUY and SELL instructions?
I added BUY < and SELL > but they are just to give you perspective. DO NOT follow it 100%. Make your own decisions. Mostly I kept this to keep track where I should sell stuff, not buy. It helped me to plan a way, not just go randomly around world. If you have big stacks of items and can’t find high price enough, sell for cheaper. I usually bought for price BUY < and mostly sold for minimum of BUY < making profit minimum of 1. Trust me, you should do this or else you end up carrying 2000 flax with no buyer like I once did.
Quick view for them who don’t want to use the sheet:
|Fish||Grain||Grapes||Meat||Butter||Olives||Cheese||Beer||Dates||Wine||Oil||Clay||Wool||Flax||Hardwood||Linen||Tools||Salt||Hides||Iron Ore||Pottery||Cotton||Silver Ore||Fur||Velvet||Leather||Jewelry||Hog||Sheep||Cow|
Here is link to Google Sheets raw data.
How to use the sheet?
“MIN” = Minimum value for which goods are sold.
“BUY <” = Buy for lower than this to make profit.
“AVG” = Average price of goods worldwide.
“SELL >” = Sell for higher than this to make profit.
“MAX” = Maximum value for which goods are sold.
“WIN” = Profit made for buying at BUY < and selling at SELL >.
“TOWNS” = How many town are included. This is only needed if you want start over. None of the numbers are accurate before this reaches 53.
Next you will find the data sheet. On the right side of each town you find two prices for each good; top price is lowest and bot price is highest. Starting from first, Akkalat sells fish sometimes for 17 and sometimes for 25 and always for price between them.
When scrolling down you can find averages. Here you can check which town sells for lowest or highest price. For example if you have ton of fish on you, you should go to Chaikand.
