Auction House is an easy way to find and sell the things you need. It's also easy to use and in case of selling items you don't need to be online.


Auctioneers are located in Freedom Harbor - the most popular one is Grandet located on Harbour's City Square right in front of Magic Fountain. There are also other Auctioneers in Libra Bazaar located in a small house next to the Blacksmith and Gabriel.

1. Search

You can freely browse through the categories to find what you need and it's possible to change the results of your search to find the desired items faster.

You can use Search functions to look for certain item using key words but you need to be very precise. Small and big letters do matter and the filtrate might fail if you did not write the part of the item name correctly.

For Example: We want to find parts from Priest's armor set from Lost Lighthouse. Knowing that each part starts from the name "Katrina" so we type it into the searching box and click Search. After few seconds we receive a complete list of items that are currently selling with the word "Katrina" - that means we see now all the parts from the desired set.

You can also click on the upper bar of the list where are informations like Quality/Level/Name/ect to change the sorting of the list. Like clicking on Quality will sort the list from the worst item quality to the best or inversely. Or for example from the lowest buyout price to the highest.


2. My bidding

List of items you are currently bidding.


3. My Auction

List of items you are currently selling.

(For more information look at the guide below)


4. Received

List of items or money you obtained from the Auction House.


5. Bid and Buyout

Bid is of course the amount of money you can place for a certain item. You can change the amount of money freely using small boxes next to those two buttons. When you're bidding on an item check if you have enough money in the bag. Each time you place a bid money disappears from your bag to be placed on auction and when someone places a bid higher than yours you can get your funds back from the Received tab. You might want to keep this in mind since sometimes you will have to quickly tab to get back your money in order to place a higher bid on your desired item.

It's worth mentioning that when you fight for a certain item on auction the time is also very important. If the time to end is lower than 5 minutes and a new bid appears it will be changed back to 5 minutes and it will keep resetting until someone gives up and won't place up a higher bid.

For example: We placed a bid on auction and the time to it's end is 2 minutes. Someone else wants this item as well and placed a higher bid than ours. The time will be changed back to 5 minutes. We placed a higher amount of money than our opponent and the timer resets again to 5 minutes and so on until one of us decides that it's not worth to go further.

Buyout is simply an option to buy the item right away without bothering of taking part of an auction.

1. Place for your item - you can sell basicly everything that is tradeable like in case of Personal Shops however depending on the type and amount of your items the fee can be higher and it might be more profitable to sell them through the player shop instead of auction. The Service Fee is visible at the end of the table. You can also set the time of the auction (the longer auction time the fee will be also higher) and decide if you want your name to be displayed or sell as Anonymous person.


2. Full list of your items - there is no limit in how many auctions you can start. All of them will be listed here. You can also freely remove them any time by using the Remove button in the lower right corner of the window (get your item back through Received tab just like money you get from them).


3. Money - you can freely set the price for your items. Just keep in mind that if it will be too high your item won't sell. It's better to do the recognition in market first before selling anything - especially items that are more expensive to put on auction.

Hint: People are often confused by boxes where they need to put the price. So they go like this: Diamond / Gold / Silver / Copper. So the first box is for Diamond - last one for Copper.

When you're done with setting everything click 'Auction button to start your own auction!
