If you own Amador, and you only sell 1 silver swords... you're really slacking on the job, I say... slacking! lol. If you're smart, for item quests, you'll update clan inventory in the city and then put the BEST/MOST EXPENSIVE swords in there! Then advertise that Yes, indeed, you DO have the best swords.
If you don't, Fal Dara can also do it for you instead
Is this still current? Because i own Ebou Dar and it is looking like knives are the best thing there. I am already 6k base Ji with 9k with support and i can only get crap Leg Armor but really good knives. Lemme know
Best locations depend also on who chooses to/has enough ji to stock the items that are given as an option to stock. Especially early to mid age, what a shop will one day have the best of does not necessarily indicate the can/do have it now. Though any top tier item (like bows in Emonds) generally indicates one item most likely to be as high as possible in a given city.
