Magic Shops

Magic Shops

There are several specialized magic shops in the city. Most minor magic items (including armor/weapons of up to +2) can be found in the city, and there is a 75 percent chance that any item of 16,000 gp or lower can be found for sale in Korvosa with little effort. In addition, there are a number of rare and expensive items for sale.

The list of these items can be found in the description of each magic shop found below, and generally change on a weekly basis as items are bought and sold.

Selling Items

The sale of items can be augmented with: Appraise, Profession(Merchant), and Profession(Trader).

When selling items, “taking 10” nets you a return of 50% of the list price. For every 5 points above a check of 10, the sale value of items increases by 5%. If a check is failed, the sale value decreases by 10%.

Due to unrest in the city, all final purchase prices are at least 120% of the listed price.
