Starting Commercing, By A Beginner

    Another tip for newbie commerce is doing the fighter quest line as it should give you enough ducats (not counting the starting ducats you're given with). It skips the painful backpack process!
    Another to add is bandit hunting. There are bounty cards in the AH and other player shops that just sell them for dirt cheap often just because only a handful see some value in them, because the goal isn't to catch the outlaw but farming bandit badges, imo I recommend this just because sometimes I get bored of just traveling the goods, it breaks that monotony. Just a cc'd firewand is enough to kill veterans in 2 casts and masters in 3-5 casts for someone below 5k.

    Collect all the bandit badges whether you're out hunting for bandits or having to defend your goods. If you're starting out, don't even let the plain badges to waste.

    The Fighter quests give 3000 ducats. Make sure you get your starter 400 ducats first before doing so or else you'll forfeit them. Bandit badges can be turned in for quests, most of which I think are for musical instruments. They can be returned directly though for ducats instead: bronze gives 1 ducat, silver 10, and gold 100.

    Altogether these are not a lot of ducats. If you're going to do the fighter quests right away anyway, then go right ahead. But if not, you can be at 3400 ducats after a minimum of your first four runs by following the tip earlier in this thread. Bare in mind if you start commencing long before doing fighter then by the time you get the 3000 ducats from fighter then they will seem like nothing more than a delightful digestif.

    If you somehow become bankrupt, I think the trade imp will give you another beginner's amount of ducats.

    Yeah, you just have to talk to them. I was lucky enough to not go bankrupt, but I've read that you can get additional ducats if that sort of things does happen lol
