Barter became part of Black Desert with the Great Expedition update on 23 October 2019. Bartering allows you to exchange materials you have gathered, by sailing to a Barter NPC located on an island or ocean object.

Barter Highlights:

  • Barter by placing goods in your ship’s inventory and sailing close to the Barter NPC.
  • Weight management is important as you plan Barter chains. Barter goods can weigh 800LT to 1kLT each.
  • Ships with greater Weight + Inventory will earn more silver. (Less time required for depositing goods on land.)
  • Available barter routes for sea trade goods are manually refreshed by you up to 2 times each day (3 with a Value Pack)
  • 4 hour limit between pressing the Barter Refresh button
  • Barter is also limited by “Parley” points. (Parley is refreshed daily and optionally with a Pearl Shop item.)
  • Barter Refresh Points refill every day at 06:00 UTC.
  • The Barter Routes shown will not change unless you press “Barter Refresh” button

Barter Basics

Barter Requirement: a Great Ocean Ship (Bartali Sailboat or higher tier ship… Epheria Sailboat, etc)

Barter Routes are visible via the World Map. If there is a Barter available, it will show over the island or NPC. But, it’s easiest to use the “Barter Search” button to get a detailed listing.

Access Barter Routes via Esc > Life > Barter.

Barter via World Map (M) > “Barter Search” button in the bottom right corner.

Barter Maps from Discord

Barter Chains / Barter Routes

The Barter Search window will show you available Barter Chains or Barter Routes. You start with items you have gathered or prepared on land and transfer them to your ship’s inventory.

Land Goods are Required for Barter:

For your first Barter, you will want to look at the land goods required to obtain a [Level 1] Sea Trade Good.

Most of the land goods are obtained via rare procs from worker nodes.

  2. Sail to the Barter NPC and stay engaged with the ship’s wheel
  3. A barter UI will appear.
  4. Press “Anchor” and then “Barter”

Barter Refresh Options

Barter Refresh erases the current Barter List and randomly gives you a new one.

The amount of Barter routes you obtain is dependant upon your completed Barter count.


Barter Refresh is limited by 100 Barter Refresh Points. (150 with a Value Pack.)

Refresh Count Refresh Points Needed for Regular Refresh Refresh Points Needed for Ship Material Refresh
1 Time 20 40
2 Times 40 50
3 Times 50 N/A (You can only use the “Ship Material Refresh” function twice a day.)


5 Barter Refresh Options:

  • Trade Item Barter Refresh: Use 20 Barter Refresh Points to immediately refresh the list. (4 hour Cooldown. Limited to 2 per day or 3 with VP)
  • Trade Item Barter Instant Refresh: Use 50 Barter Refresh Points to immediately refresh the list, when you are unable to Refresh due to the 4 hour Refresh Cooldown
  • Ship Material Refresh: Use 40 Barter Refresh Points to immediately change all barters into ship material barters. These materials are used to upgrade to your next tier of ship. Each barter material has a required total barter count in order to have a chance to obtain barter routes for them. Ex. 3,000 total barters must be completed in order to start seeing barters for Brilliant mats. (There is a limit of two Ship Material Refreshes per day.)
  • Instant Ship Material Refresh: Use 70 Barter Refresh Points to bypass the Ship Material Refresh cooldown.
  • Reduce Refresh Cooldown: Use up to 50k Parley from one button press to reduce the Refresh Cooldown. (There is no option to choose how much Parley is consumed. You can press the button multiple times in a row, as long as you have enough Parley.)
    • 10k Parley for 1 minute
    • 50k Parley for 5 minutes. (1 button press)
    • 30 minutes = 300k Parley (6 button presses)
    • 60 minutes = 600k Parley (12 button presses)
BDO Barter Refresh Window

If you have an active Value Pack, you can recover 50 extra barter refresh points.

Barter Refresh Points refill every day at 06:00 UTC.


Ship Material Refresh

You can make the following barters after using the Ship Material Refresh function if you have a certain accumulated barter count. (Source: Patch Notes)


Accumulated Barter Count Item Given Item Received
100 One Level 3 trade good Fiery Black Stone x3 (you can do this 3 times)
300 One Level 4 trade good Frosted Black Stone x3 (you can do this 3 times)
3,500 One Level 5 trade good Solar Black Stone x1 (you can do this 1 time)
3,500 Gold Bar 100G x1 Solar Black Stone x1 (you can do this 1 time)
3,500 One Level 5 trade good Lunar Black Stone x1 (you can do this 1 time)
3,500 Gold Bar 100G x2 Lunar Black Stone x1 (you can do this 1 time)
5,000 Starlight Powder (amount will vary but will average 115) Sunset Black Stone x1 (you can do this 1 time)


 Rare Spawns From Ship Material Refresh

  • Barters exchanging Crow Coins for the following items appear at a low rate during ship material barter.
    • Golden Galley Figurine (100,000,000 silver)
    • Golden Turtle Shell ( 70,000,000 silver)
    • Obsidian Crystal Bracelet (50,000,000 silver)
    • Elaborate Pearl Necklace (30,000,000 silver)
    • Gilded Coral (10,000,000 silver)

Barter Exchanges Limited by Goods Level

Exchanges Remaining:

Note that you can perform the same Barter multiple times while you are at the Barter NPC. You will have to multiply your goods by the “Exchanges Remaining” amount. Be sure to hover over the items and add up their LT. Your ship will need to have enough inventory and weight to hold multiple Barters.

Barter Exchanges (multiples of the same Barter at one time) is limited by the level of the goods being Bartered.

Barter Barter Limit Barter Item Given → Barter Reward
Level 1 6 Basic Goods → Level 1 sea trade good x1
Level 2 2 Level 1 sea trade good x1 → Level 2 sea trade good x1–3
Level 3 4 Level 2 sea trade good x1 → Level 3 sea trade good x1–3
Level 4 6 Level 3 sea trade good x1 → Level 4 sea trade good x2
Level 5 4 Level 4 sea trade good x1 → Level 5 sea trade good x1

It is common to have some left over barter goods, if you do every available Barter.


Barter Goods to Keep

Certain Barter goods are used to obtain a better ship. You may want to keep these in Storage/Alts/Wagons, if your goal is to upgrade your ship. Then it’s a waiting game, to see when your desired barter route will appear, after pressing Ship Material Refresh.

Barter Good Storage Tips:

  • Barter items can be transported at the <Storage Keeper>, although the price of transporting can get pricey. (It costs about 80k for transporting 1 [Level 5] Barter Good from Port Epheria to Ancado Inner Harbor.)
  • Level 1 and 2 barter items can’t be sold, so make sure you have enough inventory to store them, if that is what you want to do.
  • Level 1 to 4 of the same goods do stack.
  • [Level 5] goods do NOT stack, but you can sell extras at the <Wharf Manager> for 5 million silver each.
  • You can utilize character transport from city to city on an Alt. (Takes one hour. Esc > Portrait > Transport)
  • You can utilize character tagging. (Portrait icon on the top left) Tagged characters can hold barter goods. They will become severely over weight, but if you swap to them at a <Wharf Manager>, you may save yourself a trip, depending on your tagged character’s LT.
  • You can transport or sail an extra Epheria Sailboat/Bartali Sailboat to Ancado Inner Harbor for your Alt to use for your [Level 5] Barter Routes that spawn in that area. (Crow Coins and Barter Routes share across all characters.)
  • WARNING: Remote Collection of a ship (or any mount) with Barter goods on it will destroy the goods and your ship (or mount) HP/Durability. Any Sailors on board will get sick and will require a rare elixir to cure.


Barter Weights & Silver Value

 Barter Item Level LT Value
[Level 1] 800 can’t be sold
[Level 2] 800 can’t be sold
[Level 3] 900 1 million Silver
[Level 4] 1000 2 million Silver
[Level 5] 1000 5 million Silver*
Crow Coins (80 to 600)
[Level 5]
1000 10 million Silver

Barter Weight (LT) and value is determined by the Barter item’s [Level]. The most treasured item is obtained at the end of a Barter Chain, when you exchange your [Level 5] item for Crow Coins.

* It’s important that you hang on to your Crow Coins and NOT spend them on a whim. It may be tempting to buy a compass, for example. But some materials that are needed to upgrade ships are quite rare and you may find yourself using Crow Coins for those.

For a detailed guide and listing of available items you can purchase with Crow Coins, please view our Crow Coin Guide.


Barter Land Goods for Land Goods

There will also be Barter options that are not part of a Barter Chain. This often includes items that are needed for ship upgrades. For example, a common one is the “Old Moon Guild Carrack” exchanges for tree sap.

These lands good barters often give items that are in the Land Good List for [Level 1] Barters. So chances are, you will see a Barter Route open up to request the given item.

Silver Profitability:
Land Goods for Land Goods can be profitable, if you sell what you obtain on the Marketplace. But be sure to do research on each Barter option, because supply/demand and pricing changes all the time with game events, etc.

Lets look an an example of a Barter Route that opened up to me… 1,155 Old Tree Bark (20k each) in exchange for 3,000 Vinegar (1.5k each). When we do the math for this Barter, we can see that we’re trading Cooked items worth 4500000 silver, for items obtained rarely through nodes and gathering worth 23100000 Silver. Total profit using pricing as I write this: 18,600,000 silver for each completed Barter. (there were 3 Exchanges Remaining, so 55.8 million in profit.)

This was an interesting Barter option if you factor in the time it would take you to Cook the Vinegar. (Vinegar was in good supply at the Marketplace at the time of this writing.)

Also note that this trade was located at Old Moon Guild Carrack in Margoria, where it’s not easy to sail and map functionality is disabled, unless you have a compass. Traveling there can take plenty of time, depending on your experience, luck, sailing skill, and boat.

Barter [Level 1] Sea Goods for Black Stones

Any [Level 1] Barter item can be exchanged on land for Crow Merchants Guild’s Barter Voucher. You will need 120 of these in order to obtain a higher tier ship.

  • 1x [Level 1] Barter item = 1x Crow Merchants Guild’s Barter Voucher
  • This Voucher is exchanged to Ravinia, located at Crow’s Nest.
  • 1x Barter Voucher = 1x  Verdant Black Stone
  • Verdant Black Stone is used for guaranteed enhancement of +1 to +10 on Old Prow, Old Plating, Old Cannon, and Old Wind Sail.


Transporting Barter Goods to Land NPC’s

Barter items are heavy. For exchanging to Ravinia’s sisters on the mainland, boost your Weight Limit.

  • Seafood Cron +100 LT
  • Draught +200 LT
  • Shai class: 600 LT base (additional when leveling up)
  • Traders Clothes (+100 to +400 LT) or Hercules armor set bonus (150 LT) – Herc armor allows for LT crystals

Special Barter

Special Barter allows you to trade for a large amount of Crow Coins and other goods. You have an RNG chance to obtain high value Special Barters. View some of these in the table below. Some Special Barters you will want to avoid, but some can be very helpful for upgrading a ship.

Player reports seem to be all over the place with RNG as to how often Special Barter spawns and which ones they get.

The islands that have Special Barter will display a gold badge on the World Map (M).

You will see the items you can exchange through the Special Barter, only when you have reached the relevant island.

They do not disappear after Barter refresh and stay until you complete them or there is an option to skip a Special Barter.  (If you have a Value Pack activated, you can skip remotely.)

Barter Parley Chart: Barter Mastery

Barters are limited by Parley. You have 1,000,000 Parley and each Barter takes away from that number. You must have enough Parley to continue doing Barters. Parley refeshes with the Barter Refress button, which has a 4 hour cool down. (Instant Refresh or Reduce Cooldown options will eliminate or reduce this Cooldown.)

To decrease your Parley cost, increase your Barter Mastery. Barter Mastery is increased via Life Mastery items (like Loggia Mastery Gear) and Barter Life Skill levels. (A Value Pack gives -10% Parley cost.)

  • If you achieve the top 5% of the winners, then you will be awarded extra. However, you will not be awarded additional medals, if there is a tie. For example, if 1st-5th place all have 5 points, then no one will get the 1st place reward.
  • Exchange Shining Medal of Honor with a <Guild Manager>, located in each town.

Item Collection Scroll Via Pearl Shop

At the time of writing this, there was an Event sale with 15 Item Collection Scrolls.

Item Collection Scrolls are commonly found with other Pearl Shop bundles, packs, etc. In other words, hidden from easy view.

Take careful note that if you are buying for this purpose that some Pearl Shop scrolls say [Event] Scroll. These will NOT work!

It’s a bit confusing. The image below says [Event] Lucky Fortune Pack. But notice the scrolls themselves do not have this label! These would work fine for making the Parley item.

Barter Exp and Leveling

Barter became a Life Skill shortly after its release.

  • Barter Exp is earned each time you complete a Barter.
  • Special Barters do not give Barter Exp.
  • Barter Exp depends on the level of the item being Bartered.
  • Increase Barter Exp by using any Life Skill Exp item or buff (Ex. Extra Life EXP Scroll from Loyalty Shop)
  • Barter Level is seen in your Character Profile window (P)
  • Barter Rank is also viewable in the Rankings window.

Leveling Barter Life Skill

Since Barter is considered a Life Skill, we can use all the many Life Skill Exp items available to us. Many professions have clothing, but not for Barter. (Hopefully in the future.)

Quick Life XP Item List:

  • Perfume of Swiftness: 20% (stacks with Elixir of Flowing Time or Verdure Draught)
  • Verdure Draught: 20% or Elixir of Flowing Time: 15% (these stack with Perfume of Swiftness, but can’t be stacked together or with other elixirs)
  • Loyalty/Event Extra Life EXP Scroll: 50%
  • Sute Tea: 8% (or Whale Salad/Seafood Cron Meal: 10%, +15% for crit version)
  • T4 cat gives 4% Life XP. 5 T4 Cats = 20% Life Skill Exp

  • Guild Buff (Experienced Cry): 10% Life XP
  • GM’s Blessing/Event Buff (rare reward): 10% to 15% Life XP
