Selling Stuff?

New to the game this week. I am enjoying it however I am feeling pretty lost. I've been following along on quests and I'm trying to learn the crafting system. From what I've read so far there are "trading guilds". Is there another way to sell stuff without joining one of those? Is there a broker of some sort?

    Yes, but it means the dark ways... also know as spam the chat with your junk until someone want it.
    Basically if you really want to get in to the market, you need a Trading Guild if not you will be fine with chat spam

    Ways to sell things:

    To NPC Vendors: ornate gear, junk gear, stuff marked with the money bag symbol, and stolen goods are all best sold to NPC Vendors or Fences.

    In Zone Chat: type something like "WTS [link item]" into zone chat. You'll want to have some idea of the worth of the item, either through TTC, add-ons, or searching other guild stores to figure out prices. If someone wants to buy it, you'll send the item via C.O.D. mail for the agreed upon price.

    In a trading guild: with Elsweyr, you'll be able to search for guilds to apply to, which should make these easier. I usually look at advertisements in zone chat for a guild that suits my selling style.

    In a trading guild, you'll get 30 listings where you can list items for whatever price you want.

    Trading guilds have to bid every week to keep their trader spot, so many have some sort of participation requirement. Some make have required sales, raffle ticket buys, etc. I've been able to find guilds that fit my sales, since I like to farm alchemy mats which makes for steady gold.

    Hope that helps!

    Welcome to the game.

    This is just a friendly, informative message...... a majority of the items you get while leveling your first character aren't really worth much, except what you can get at an NPC vendor. You can try wasting some of your time spamming in zone chat, but until you reach level 50 and CP 160 (the max CP an item will drop at) it's not worth the energy. I would honestly recommend just deconstructing a lot of your items to level up your crafting skills. Once you get higher level, gold is easy to make so I wouldn't stress about it at this point.

    There are trading guilds that don't charge fees to join. If you're on pc/na there are guilds I could send you invitations for, if you were interested.

    If you're making a crafter, a good start is to get as much research started/done as you can. The first few traits will go fast, however every additional trait will about double the time it takes to finish the research.

    99% of the stuff you get while leveling to CP160 is best deconstructed to level your crafting skills. While crafting is not a requirement, it does make the game better.

    Nice thing, you can level Blacksmithing, Woodworking, Clothing and Enchanting thru decon alone and not have to invest any skill points.

    However, if you are going to craft, research your traits, and start now. I have some posts in the crafting section on how to do that.

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.
