Imperial Trading

From BDO WIKI
Jump to: navigation, search

When you supply products from trading, alchemy, and cooking to the Imperial Delivery NPCs, you can sell at a much higher price and make big profit. In Black Desert's world, there are <Imperial Delivery> NPCs to pass trade goods items and <Imperial Craft Delivery> NPCs to pass alchemy and cooking products.

Imperial Delivery is attractive because NPCs buy the trade items at a high price, but the quantity that can be delivered per each trade item is limited. You will need to check supply information and secure trade items faster than other adventurers.

There is a fixed quantity of each item that each NPC can purchase from Imperial Delivery. These items are also limited to each player's family name so that a few players cannot dominate the market.

Market Price of the Trade Item Is Fixed at 250%! Imperial Delivery

Imperial Delivery is a trading event from all around the world in which NPCs purchase certain trade items at 250% of market price. These NPCs are located individually in the main towns of the various territories: Velia, Heidel, Calpheon City, Altinova, Valencia City, Grána, Duvencrune and Port Ratt.


♦Imperial Delivery NPC Radolf Hansen in Heidel. You’ll find the title displayed on top of the NPC, making it easier to find.

For details about the Imperial Delivery, open the main menu by pressing ESC and then click Trade Info. In the new UI, first you need to click the Info/Function tab. The Trade Info will show the Imperial Delivery NPCs from different territories purchasing Trade Items at 250% market price. If you hold the cursor over the Trade Item, it will display the Trade Item description and place of origin.

This list of information and the quantity that is available to be delivered is reset every 4 hours. Each trade item has a certain amount that you can deliver. Therefore, it is important to deliver trade items faster than other adventurers.


♦Each Trade Item has a delivery limit. This is indicated by the Max Stock value (marked in light blue). When the Max Stock value is at 0, the Imperial Delivery NPC will no longer purchase that Trade Item.

♦Press ESC – Trade Info to see Imperial Delivery market status. When you click on the navigation icon, a guide leading to that Imperial NPC will be displayed on the map.

To get the most out of the Imperial Delivery, it’s important to take into account of the distance between the Trade Item’s place of origin and the village where the Trade Item is purchased and the original cost of the Trade Item.

This is because the closer you are the faster you can move Trade Items. Since you are competing with other adventurers, it is important to establish a route that allows you to quickly supply the Trade Item to the market.

A distance bonus is applied if you are delivering a Trade Item from a far place. The distance bonus is separate from the 250% market price. Because of the distance bonus, you can sell the Trade Item at a much higher price.


It is also important to check the Max Stock value of the Trade Item you want to deliver. Even if more Trade Items can be purchased, the Trade Item will not be exchanged if the Max Stock value is 0.

For these cases, you can try moving to different channels and then check the Max Stock value for the Trade Item you want to sell. However, since you have to wait 15 minute whenever you switch channel, another adventurer may have already monopolized the Trade Item you want to sell.

Sometimes adventurers will travel from afar with their wagon, only to find that they are unable to exchange the Trade Item in the market since the Max Stock value is 0. To avoid this, be sure to check the Max Stock value for the Trade Item in the territory you are heading to. Also, it’s good idea to acquire a Trade Pass (can be purchased with loyalty) before heading out.


♦Open the World Map and view the territory/city you are heading to. From the World Map, press the Wagon icon to check the price and Max Stock value of the item you want to sell.

The 250% fixed price means you’ll see larger return when you sell Trade Item with higher original cost.

If you take into account the travel time from the Trade Item’s place of origin and the Imperial Delivery NPC, you’ll see a larger return when you sell Trade Item with high original cost.

The Elixir and Dish I Made Become Trade Item! Imperial Craft Delivery


♦In each major city, you can find the <Imperial Craft Delivery> NPC.

The type of trade item you can sell to the Imperial Delivery NPC is random. However, the item you sell to the Imperial Craft Delivery is fixed and does not change. It is recommended that you craft these items ahead of time to be sold at a later date.

You need to pack your items before you sell them to the Imperial Craft Delivery NPC.

You can use the ‘Imperial Cuisine’ function to pack food items and the ‘Imperial Alchemy’ one to pack alchemy items. The ‘Imperial Cuisine’ and ‘Imperial Alchemy’ functions will convert the items to tradable goods.


Please refer to the example below:

Cook 20 x Fried Fish -> Use Imperial Cuisine function to pack dishes -> Dishes are converted to ‘Apprentice’s Fried Fish Cooking Box’ -> Sell ‘Apprentice’s Fried Fish Cooking Box’ to the Imperial Craft Delivery NPC.


There are a few more things you should know about the Imperial Craft Delivery feature.

There is a limit on how many items the Imperial Craft Delivery NPC can purchase during the trade event. However, unlike Imperial Delivery, there is also a limit to how much a Family can sell per day; allowing more adventurers to take part in the event.


The amount a Family can sell through the Imperial Craft Delivery is determined by dividing the Family’s Contribution Points by 3. For example, a total of 120 Imperial Craft Delivery can be sold if an adventurer has 360 Contribution points.


♦There is relatively less competition for Imperial Crafting Delivery because of the limit per family and item.

The Imperial Craft Delivery resets at a random server at midnight (00:00) and every 3 hours after that. As a result, it is important to find on which server the next Imperial Craft Delivery trade event will be held.

Once you have identified a channel where Imperial Crafting Delivery has started, you should prepare the items to sell. Since it takes a considerable amount of time to make items by alchemy and cooking, it is recommended that you decide a list of items to be sold ahead of time.


Your Cooking and Alchemy grade must be an appropriate level in order to pack items.

For example, you can prepare a meat stew as long as your Cooking grade is Beginner level 1. However, your Cooking grade must be Skilled or higher in order to convert meat stew into ‘Skilled Cook’s Meat Stew Cooking Box’.

If your Cooking and Alchemy grade is below Skilled, make sure to level up your Cooking and Alchemy skill in order to pack items.


♦Go to the Processing Method (Hotkey L) to use the Imperial Cuisine and Imperial Alchemy function.
