The Lost Ark Wandering Merchants are important NPCs that are found across the various contents of Arkesia, where they offer important items that make them well sought after by players. During the Lost Ark end-game, there is a lot to do, and part of the core loop involves travelling to Wandering Merchants to see their refreshed wares, which often allow you to gain more power. So if you need a full breakdown of the Lost Ark Wandering Merchants locations and their available items, we've got you covered. 

Where can you find a Wandering Merchant in Lost Ark?

First, it is important to understand that not every region in Arkesia has a Wandering Merchant and that each NPC sells different sets of items. Check your location and whether you can reach a determined seller while they are available. Below you will find the locations of Merchants, along with the time they will be up on your server. Keep in mind that the times are AM and PM!

In case you don’t want to worry about checking the clock all the time or finding where a particular NPC is, then you can use the Lost Merchant app. It works like many other services for online games which are fed by the community. Fill in your server and region then you can see how much time until the Merchants spawn or for how long they are up. Other players will mark what are the items the NPC is currently selling and their location as well.

What are Wandering Merchants in Lost Ark?

Lost Ark Wandering Merchants are unique NPCs in the game

Lost Ark has many systems for players to interact with, such as the deck building and the Lost Ark Rapport system. The Wandering Merchants are extremely important to progress in both systems since they have a selection of cards and items that you won’t find anywhere else. On the other hand, the selection of items they will be selling changes each time.

However, the downside of the Wandering Merchants is that they travel all the time. So, their location shifts and can be in a number of random locations across the continents. These NPCs are on somewhat randomized schedules and only remain for 25 minutes in each of the game's channels, which can be accessed from the drop-down in the top right. Because of that, knowing what you may want to buy or where you should look for them is the best way to prepare yourself ahead of time.

This is the list of Wandering Merchants to help your life in Lost Ark!

Since you will be visiting many places, you can also use the opportunity to hunt some Lost Ark World Bosses.
