Can someone pls recommend some profitable trade routes in 2.0? I just started a few days ago with this version and I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the new trade goods.
Btw, is wood not intended for trade? Most vendors only want to pay ~30.
Thanks in advance!
Selling stuff from the North to a town in the south (like the rich King's Landing) gives the most profit. In my game, I can buy leather for very cheap in the North (about 15 sp) and sell it about 200+ at King's Landing. Huge profit.
Wood is not well programmed : it is offered at 250 flat in all villages and there is no profit to be made, except on some rare occasions for special types of wood.
I also use the merchant option "local prices". Quite useful.
Still, trading is not really viable. I just recently did a big trade route that took my cavalry about a week. The conclusion is all the profit I made is lost in paying my troops even though most are stationed in my castle.
What is viable is to conquer a town and castles as your own king. Otherwise, all silver pieces you muster from trading and quests are lost quickly to paying your army. I realized I was chasing my own tail, got bored and will now attempt to conquer a town and destroy a faction in Essos.
