Redeem a Bond to summon a portable trader
From April 23rd to 2nd June you will be able to exchange a Bond to summon your very own Portable Trader, like the current Vic the Trader, to spend your hard-earned Bonus XP.
At this time, this is not a permanent addition to the game, but may be re-introduced permanently if it proves popular. This does not impact the usual occurrence of Vic the Trader.
How does this work?
|Withdraw a Bond into your inventory.|
|Access the Bond interface, then locate the Portable Trader.|
|Click on the Summoning Stone in the inventory.|
|Deposit unwanted bonus XP.|
|Purchase desired items with credits.|
Once activated, the Portable Trader remains available for 1 hour – and if you leave the game this timer is paused. Should you lose sight of your Trader, he can be re-summoned using the same Stone. The Portable Trader can be accessed an unlimited number of times while active. You can buy multiple stones, and they remain available to you even after the promotion ends.
- Is this available for F2P players?
- How much does the Portable Trader cost?
- Does this mean the regular Vic the Trader is disappearing?
- How long will the Portable Trader last when summoned?
- At the end of the promotion, will purchased Summoning Stones be removed?
- Does that mean there will be Portable Traders everywhere?
- What if I forget where I put my Portable Trader?
How long will the Portable Trader last when summoned?
The Portable Trader will be active for exactly 1 hour and the timer is paused should you log off. During this time you can trade and spend earnt credits. There will also be a buff on your buff bar showing how long you have left.
Does that mean there will be Portable Traders everywhere?
You cannot place a Portable Trader within 3 tiles of another players trader or a 10-tile radius of the standard Vic the Trader. Players can only summon one Trader at any given time.
What if I forget where I put my Portable Trader?
Don’t worry, you can summon him in most places that allow Summoning Familiars. On top of this, if you have a large distance between you and the Trader they will automatically be dismissed.
