Black Desert Imperial Trading Guide

Black Desert Online guide to the various aspects of Imperial Trading added with Aug 10 patch.

Calpheon/Mediah Trade

All trade quests from Trade Managers in pre-Mediah and Mediah areas now rewards Calpheon or Mediah Trade seals when you complete them. This is just an added bonus to regular trading as you can now use these Shiny Golden Seals of either Calpheon or Mediah Trade to purchase items. Trade quests in Serendia, Balenos, and Calpheon rewards Calpheon Trade seals while Trade quests in Mediah rewards Mediah seals.

Work Supervisor

Workers now give Shiny Golden Seals of Worker Supervisor randomly whenever they finish a round of work. These seals are deposited in the storage of the city they call home. Higher tier workers (i.e. Artisan workers) seem to give more and goblins might be the best choice to mass produce these seals due to their fast speed.

Shiny Golden Seal – [Work Supervisor]

You can exchange these seals at Santo Manzi in Velia for items.

Imperial Conquest

Imperial Conquest are seals you can obtained by killing the thieves that spawn and attack you when you have a trade package for you. All you need to do is to grab a trade pack from any trade manager and go to the spots marked with the bandit icon. These thieves are about level 50 and comes in packs of 3 or more. On average you will get one seal per pack so it can take a while to accumulate enough seals to trade in for items.

Imperial Fishing & Training

You can now trade blue and higher quality fishes to an Imperial vendor in Velia and Level 15+ horses of any tier to another Imperial vendor in Calpheon.

Imperial Fishing

Imperial Fishing Delivery NPCs can be found in Velia, Glish, Epheria Port, Splashing Point and Valencia City. They will take most blue/yellow fish you have at 250% trade bonus and occasionally give you Shiny Golden Seal – [Imperial Fishing] as well.

  • There is no distance bonus. The trade window may include a higher price since it factor in the distance bonus but you will only get paid the 250% trade value with no distance bonus.
  • You cannot bargain with the trader.

There is no distance bonus but you still need to have nodes connected or you will only get 30%. The freshness of the fish won’t matter for the silver value, as long the fish is not expired. Each trade also have a limit on how much of each fish (usually 30-40) they will take and this limit reset every few hours (assumption is randomly every 3-4 hrs). This limit is shared with other players so you  swap channel or NPC if you encounter a NPC that no longer takes your fish.

  • Karon in Velia next to the dock manager

Imperial Training

Level 15+ horses of any tier can be traded for Shiny Golden Seals of Imperial Training at stables in major cities. Once you have the Level 15 or above horse inside a stable in one of the major cities, you will get the option for Imperial Horse delivery when you click on them. This will give you a number of Shiny Golden Seals of Imperial Training depending on the tier of the horse and a large amount of silver depending on the number of skills the horse has earned.

  • Tier 1 horses get 1 seal, tier 2 get 2 seals, and so on with Tier 7 horses earning 7 seals on trade in.

bdo-imperial-trainingbdo-imperial-training-2

With the Shiny Golden Seal – [Imperial Training], you can trade them with the stable NPC Breesman in Calpheon north gate.

  • 15 seals give you a Dark Brown Camel which has the same stats/skills as the regular camel just with a different appearance.

Imperial Delivery

This feature is currently a bit buggy with the Imperial Delivery NPC only showing up in select channels (Valencia 2 channels seems to have them at time of writing). Do not confuse the Imperial Delivery NPC with the Imperial Crafting Delivery NPC, these are two different NPCs.

For Imperial Delivery you need to press ESC to go to the main menu and then click the new Trade Info button. The top section shows you the Merchant Event in which merchants in some areas will take all goods at 200% value if you have nodes connected to them. This isn’t related to Imperial Delivery and is just normal trading so I won’t go into it here.

bdo-imperial-deliverybdo-imperial-delivery-2

Now the bottom section marked Imperial Delivery is our focus. You will see 5 NPCs, one in each region. They will take different goods that changes every few hrs from various places. You need to hover over the goods to see where you can purchase them. For example the Mediah Territory Imperial Delivery NPC wants Love Potion No.6 that comes from the Trade Manager in Olvia. Another way to see items that are available for Imperial Delivery is going to the individual trade managers and spot the Imperial Delivery in progress notification on the items.

bdo-imperial-delivery-3bdo-imperial-delivery-4

You trade in the goods these Imperial Delivery NPCs want and in exchange for these goods they will give you silver and variable amounts of Shiny Golden Seal – [Imperial Delivery] which you can exchange for other items. For maximum silver gain you will need to connect the nodes just like regular trades. There is also a limit on how much of the items they will take, as indicated by each item’s trading interface. They will stop these items once that limit is reached. This reset every few hours but you can also swap channels.

  • There is distance bonus and you can bargain to get more than the listed price.

Imperial Cooking & Alchemy

How Imperial Cooking & Alchemy Works

Imperial Cooking and Alchemy basically function identical so I have grouped them together. In each of the major cities in each region is an Imperial Crafting Delivery NPC that will take certain packages you crafted using cooking or alchemy. You must craft the sub-ingredients first using normal alchemy/cooking tools in your residence and then use the processing window (L) and select either the Imperial Cuisine or the Imperial Alchemy Packaging option to make the final product that will be accepted by the delivery NPCs.

  • It is possible to proc a double sometimes when doing the processing to make the trade packages.

bdo-imperial-cooking-alchemy

These trade packages will always sell at 250% and you do not need to connect nodes to the various cities to benefit from it. However, there are some restrictions on how and how much you can sell.

  • You can only make packages via processing to your maximum alchemy/cooking level. So if you are a professional chef, you can only make professional cooking boxes and below. You cannot make the artisan or master ones until you reach there in cooking levels.
  • There is a daily limit of how much you can sell, this is determined by your maximum contribution point (i.e. at 200 contribution point I can sell 67 items to these traders)
  • For each item, each NPC will only take 30 +/-7 (i.e. maximum of 37 or a minimum of 23). This number is shared between players for that NPC on that channel so if someone sold the same items before you get to that NPC and deplete the quantities, you will need to wait 3 hrs for the NPC to reset that particular item’s stock or swap to a different channel or go to a different NPC in the same channel.
  • There is no distance bonus. The trade window may include a higher price since it factor in the distance bonus but you will only get paid the 250% trade value with no distance bonus.
  • You cannot bargain with the trader.

  • [FirstLight] Vortex Blade

    Thanks! Didn’t realize Imperial trading had so much to it.

  • GavinRuneblade

    I think there might be a way to exploit worker seals via 1 round tasks. Like set a worker to make one Blackstone powder, not a full load of his max stamina. Does that yield a seal?

    If it does, I bet it is an exploit and gets patched fast.

    • Actually I was wrong, it is not given at end of work but rather has a chance to give you one whenever a worker finishes a round

      • GavinRuneblade

        That makes sense and is a good way to handle what I had guessed at. I wonder if worker luck plays a role or not. Would be annoying to test given the best way is one type of worker per city and all my cities have mixes of worker types.

  • Simra

    Just reading your guide. Very nice work, thank you. I wanted to add that you can get a camel with Shiney Golden Seal -[Imperial Training] at Boulder Outpost, also.

  • Trender

    So how is imperial trade if you sell those items in marketplace?

  • Andrew Galley

    Thank you! It looks like this update makes trading-heavy gameplay worthwhile again, given the silver returns for commodities tended to be pretty shite up until now.

  • Zeldain

    I am not sure I understand Imperial trade at all… I mean, Imperial fishing… with 250% bonus, why would you ever sell any fish anywhere else? I don’t get it.

    • phinman

      only a certain amount of said fish can be sold at one time and from what ive heard about korea is the fish are typically always oversold or close

    • GavinRuneblade

      The Imperial trader only takes some sorts of fish. All gold and some blues, but no greens or whites. So you literally cannot sell everything to them.

  • Myst

    Are the alchemy and cooking limits exclusive, or if I sell say 67 boxes to the imperial cook and I have 200 CP can I also sell 67 boxes to the imperial alchemy trader?

    • Nope, they share the same limit.

  • Doob

    Great guide as always Dulfy. But do you or anyone know when the daily delivery quantity resets?

    • Midnight I think. Forgot it was est or pst.

  • Steve Phillips

    Pure Liquid Reagent is actually CLEAR liquid reagent in EU

    • Seth Lawson

      Same in NA

  • Alegroso Granada Jeb

    daily limit of quantity imperial cooking reset daily or every 3 to 4 hours?

    • Not the daily limit, the NPC limit.

  • Kallen

    Found out that reset is every 3hrs, but its not a 100% chance to reset.

  • Seth Lawson

    Training: Horses “sold” for seals receive 50% of their market value. Sold via Horse Market, you receive 65% (both are impacted by value pack, making them 65% and 85.5%)
    As mentioned many other places, seal items require additional seal items or memory fragments to repair. They also don’t work as sets with earlier pieces, so the Prow isn’t faster without the 220 Calpheon Trade seal and 500 worker seal boat items.
    These also provide additional upgrading difficulty, with Horse/Vehicle gear going +9 => +10 allowing fails beyond 30 (Was able to go from 52 to 61 on the Prow of Abundance, though I wouldn’t expect this to be common, as it later upgraded at 26)

  • Lyvectra Alt1

    What costume should we wear to make the boxes? Are they based on Cooking/Alchemy exp, or Processing exp?

  • Larze

    On the Dark brown camel for 15 trading seals. Its actually slightly quicker than the normal camel at 101% starting stats. Not sure if they gain stats quicker either but I will upload a screenshot of a max level dark brown camel if anyone else has a normal level 20 to compare with.

  • Sherrif

    “This is normal trading so I won’t go into it here”

    So where do you go into it? I only ask because you’re the only guide that even references it’s existence, and I have no idea what it is.

    • Renira

      Yes, this. I’ve been trying to find an answer on this for months. Every time I try to visit the merchant, everything’s always normal price. I have no idea what’s special about the Merchant Event at all…it shows 200% or greater on all goods, but when I look through the quotation board, I only see regular prices on everything. I’ve tried to walk up with various trade goods and none of them have an offer over 200%. I try googling “Merchant Event” with Black Desert and this is truly the only thing that mentions it. I’m at a loss.

    • Renira

      Also, I found it listed as “Hot Time Trading” in the forums and it states the following:
      HOT-TIME TRADING

      Every once in a while, there will be a global announcement indicating that a town is buying goods for 200% of their value. This form of trading is rather simple. Before the allotted time or quantity runs out, sell any trade goods into the indicated town. Like any other forms of trading, a node must be connected to that town to profit from it. Due to the irregularity and random placement of these events, it is not wise to actively seek this trading method out unless it happily falls under a specific happenstance where the town is already connected in your node setup.

      I honestly don’t think I’ve missed the quantity running out every time. 😛 Is this just broken?

      • Sherrif

        Yeah, same here. I’ve even tried both ways, selling items from that merchant and to that merchant. There doesn’t seem to be any way of getting a 200% price on anything.

  • Mylerna

    Is it just me or do you make more by selling the cooked items on the marketplace? Example – Ham Sandwich sells for 20,224 on mkt, if I make 50 that is over 1 million. The box only gives me $575K. Am I missing something?

    • Only the lower level imperial cooking stuff are worth it, the artisan/master ones rarely as they require too much of the expensive stuff. Of course you also have to see if the food sales on the marketplace

      • Mylerna

        Ok, thanks. It appears the boiled eggs, omelets and honey wine are good deals right now. Some of the ones such as soft bread etc… are good too, but they require milk and that stuff is too much of a pain to get. Anyone find a node for milking cows let me know 🙂

  • Geary Coomer

    what do I do when I see not enough quanity even with 10 crates and I’m to heavy to do more

    • Geary Coomer

      I’m at apprentice but I did sell 10 boxes before to this problem

    • Swap to a different channel, the limit also reset every 3 hrs
