Re: Best places to shop

Cheapest ships are usually at Laby. At Lima and Terra they are a lot more expensive.

Re: Best places to shop

I also only know Jade. For clothes Kirin (where I also happen to have a tailor) is generally slightly cheaper than either Terra or Lima and supply time is a lot faster.

For furniture I have shopped around and occasionally found islands like Sakijima to be cheap and fast but other times Lima is cheaper but never fast.

Generally if the cost is important to you then you should shop around as costs don't stay constant for long.

Re: Best places to shop

Wxfiend has some pretty cheap furnitures, and has most things in stock if not all. I believe one is on Kirin and the other on Hadrian. Tides of Change on Carmine has some of the cheaper ships around the ocean.

Re: Best places to shop

I agree with Furni being cheap and fast in Kirin. Just yesterday I bought a dresser for 900 poes + Dub with emidiate delivery. Other islans where 1500+

For Clothes, I'm a Terra fan myself.

Re: Best places to shop

We have two tailor shoppes on Terra (Fade To Black, Bad Seed). We only sell off of the rack but we have some pretty cheap prices...we even guarantee our prices with a price match if someone else is selling the same thing cheaper off of their rack. Let me know if you have any questions, thanks.

Bludgeons - Kirin
Swords - Dragon's Nest
Ships - Lima / Terra (occasionally)
Clothes - Lima / Terra


Decided Id have a simple look and compare some of the islands you listed. Ive compared them mostly against Kirin as thats were I'm based.


Ships

2/21 ships were cheaper on Terra than Kirin and that was only small ships the Sloop and Dhow. Most ships on Kirin were typically many k's cheaper especially the larger ones.

Lima - 7 / 14 available ships were cheaper on Lima. However adding in the seven that's could be made if the large shipyard was run properly, brings it up to 7/21.


Small ships - better to buy from Lima and Terra. For your LE and larger ships Kirin is best - odd despite not spawning wood.

Bludgeons

Im going to use aqua/aqua as its the first in the list.



1 same price and 4 cheaper on Lima out of a possible 11.
Other 6 were cheaper on Kirin.

Kirin is typically cheaper however delivery times might be better on Lima.


Swords

Use blue/blue - first reasonably priced colour.

DN vs Kirin
Of the 15 swords, 5 were cheaper on DN compared to Kirin. Of the swords cheaper on DN typically it wasn't a large difference.

DN vs Lima
2/15 swords were cheaper on DN.

Lima is the overall winner here. I didnt compare it against Kirin but id guess it'd be cheaper.


Clothes
I just simply clicked on random items and compared across. I didnt take note but I found of Terra, Kirin and Lima the latter was typically cheaper.

Terras prices ranged from reasonable to absurd for some items. Lima had some noob stall owners who brought there overall average down, I'm not sure how they make a profit sometimes.

Best to shop around here, you might find one thing cheaper on one island.

Furni

Lima vs Kirin
Again it varied alot, I clicked on random things and compared prices. Sometimes either was cheaper. my only note was expensive furniture was typically slightly cheaper on Kirin.

No winner here. Kirins delivery times are alot better however.

Re: Best places to shop

I only buy Sloops via Shipyards, so that's why I pointed Lima. I think noone, or barely anyone except Flags, buy anything bigger than a WB via SY; so yeah, Lima for me.

I've always found Kirin to be the most cost efficient, since I pretty much buy every single Bludgeon when I go shopping for them.

I only tend to see Lima when a new sword comes out - which has only happened with the Katana / Dadao yet. Most of the times, I go to DN by default, as I have for the past 5 years, and see reasonable prices with immediate delivery. If there's a difference between Lima and DN, it's not anything absurd.

Terra would be best for 'Fancy' clothing, Lima for most 'Basic' lines - And yeah, the prices on Lima are extremely unstable.

Even though I didn't say anything about Furni, I've always went to Lima, so meh.

Re: Best places to shop

There is more than one arch on Viridian, you know ...

Laby tends to be quite cheap for ships. Swords and bludgeons depend on which minerals they use, but Jade is almost certainly the most expensive (most of the sword making minerals are from the other arches), except for leushite swords and bludgeons.

Also I would say Napi/Hadrian would be good places for ships aswell I'd think.

Napi/Laby would be good places for clothes? But clothes you can find a deal anywhere.
