Selling Gear: The Bazaar & The Vendors

Harvey Deuce
The Bazaar Trader

Where and How To Buy and Sell Your Gear

You’ve had your first battles and earned a few rewards. Or your backpack is full and you need to sell some loot. Or maybe you want to purchase some new gear, or training tomes for your crew and you need some gold. Whatever your reason, it’s time to sell some of the loot you’ve collected.

There are various ways to sell items. At the Bazaar, at a gear Vendor, or to a Free Trader. But hold up before you go hitting that Sell button. Are you sure your selling that item in the right place? Are you getting the best price for your loot? You mean you didn’t know there was a difference? Yep, there is.

Not all place will give you the same amount of gold for your loot. Like any merchandizing business, there’s a supply and demand component to the Pirate Spiral. And while it’s might be easy and convenient to sell all your loot in one place, you’re not doing yourself any favors by dumping your backpack in one place. It’s worth it to shop around a little.

History of Veterans Day
World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.” Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.
