Let us discuss the BG3 trade system. Baldur’s Gate 3 have various shops, vendors, and merchants in it. But who are they and where do we find them? Here is another important question. How to get discount from Baldur’s Gate 3 trader characters?
First thing to remember, Baldur’s Gate 3 merchants does stock reset. But only after a level up or a long rest. You need to either of them to trigger a merchant stock reset. Otherwise, you are stuck with whatever items presently exists.
Okay, wanna know the BG3 traders? There aren’t many merchants in the game at the moment. Because we can only play the act 1 so far. I believe the number of traders will quadruple with the full release.
So, here is the all available Baldur’s Gate 3 shops, vendors, and merchants:
- Auntie Ethel
- Derryth Bonecloack
- Grat The Trader
- Roah Moonglow
And of course the Mudcrab merchant my personel favorite. Basically it is a mod that adds a trader mudcrab merchant to the player camp. You might remember it from the Elder Scrolls Morrowind. Holy mudcrab merchant saint. It has lots of golds to trade and really good to have at camp. So, I say go get this mod and enhance your BG3
Baldur’s Gate 3 Trader Discount
Baldur’s Gate 3 merchant prices are determined by two things. First, your bartering characters charisma. Higher charisma means cheaper prices. Especially bards, tieflings, and warlocks are lucky because charisma is their main attribute.
Other price determining factor is the attitude. Specifically, the merchants attitude towards the character he is bartering. So, how does one increase their attitude level with a vendor in BG3? You can increase attitude by doing unfavorable trades. Basically giving free items to the vendor or selling stuff cheap increases their attitude. It is a favor system and worth abusing.
Of course by helping trades with various quests should increase their attitude towards you. But I don’t think that’s a feature at the moment. Not in the early access at least. But we can expect it to happen on the full release for sure.
