The in-game Trade system is used for the face-to-face exchange of items and gold in real time. This method is used primarily to avoid paying the fees associated with sending via Mail or listing through a Guild Store, as there is no cost to trade with another player using the Trade interface.

Trade Interface[edit]

The Trade interface

The interface for Trading can be accessed by approaching another player and using the Interaction menu to select Invite to Trade. Each player is given a small window on the left side for listing up to five item stacks as their contribution towards the trade. Items can be selected from your inventory on the right side; note that items cannot be drawn from your crafting bag and must instead be retrieved to your inventory before initiating the Trade process. Each player can also include a specified amount of gold as part of their offer.

When both players have added the items and/or gold they wish to offer, they each Accept the other's offer; when both players have accepted, the trade is complete and each player is sent the accepted offer of the other player.
