NPCs in Black Desert are more in depth than in most games. NPCs can buy and sell items, but you can also steal from them and converse with them. You will also notice that some NPCs are not available at night, while others are only available at night.
Remember, tax rates do not apply to the items purchased through NPC stores.
▲ If you have knowledge of an NPC, you can check its location, travel distance, its schedule, and more.
NPC Shop Features
When you want to purchase items from a merchant you can also select "purchase multiple" and enter a quantity. Some merchants will have items you cannot purchase because you do not know them well enough. To get to know the NPC better you will need to converse with them.

If you look at the list of items sold by a merchant, you may occasionally see an amity requirement. This means that you can not make purchases of that item unless you raise your amity to that number. Remember, items that require amity are difficult to obtain.
However, once you purchase the item, your amity with the NPC will be consumed. So you need to remember that you will have to increase your amity with the NPC through the usual means (exchanging stories, greeting them) if you want to purchase more of the items.
