How to use a Merchant
« on: November 03, 2013, 12:18:39 AM »
So this is likely REALLY stupid (or at least Noobish) question, but...

I just bought a Merchant and then clicked on "Items" figuring that he would be there like everything else.  However I do not see a Merchant available to "Use".  Am I looking in the wrong place?  Having spent the 5000 credits to get fellow to come by, how do I actually call him?

Thanks in Advance!

your warehouses need to be able to hold the amount you wish to trade

I have seen conflicting post about using the Merchant on a Titan.  Is it limited to the 1B Cargo Capacity it has when not Deployed?  Or can you Trade an unlimited amount?  Thanks...

Yes the trades are limited to the 1b capacity.


If you have on your titan 2.5b ore and no hydro, you can trade it for 1b hydro.  If you have 1b crystal and no ore, you can trade 600m crystal for 1b ore and no more.

What the last two folks said is confirmed.  Titan must be Deployed to use the Merchant and you can only get up to 1B of the Resource you are trading for.  I tried sending along extra Cargo ships to see if that would increase the limit.  It did not.

This might be a stupid question. But do i need cargo ships on my Titan when i use the Merchant for a trade? Or is it automatically done with no movements? I'm thinking i don't need them because, where would they go.

however, if you want to do multiple trades then you need cargo ships to lift the resources off the ground whilst you conduct other trades..

you would be better suited sinking res into a h warehouse to get it past the 1b capacity of the titan. this way you will get more for your trade..you can also purchase the Logistics Specialist which adds an extra two levels of h warehouse...

As an example i have a level 25 which gives me a trade of 6.3b hydrogen.... next level would take it over 10b

this then gives better value for your money guys.

Thanks for the help to both of you. I've just never used my Merchants before and didn't want to mess it up.
