Once the player has located the market, go to the NPC and communicate with him. A menu will open up with all the details of the things that can be bought and sold in the market online. If you are looking for some treasures, here’s a Treasure Location Guide. The Lost Ark market does not trade in silver currency, so you need gold currency if you want to buy items from the market in Lost Ark.

Things to Trade in the Market 

There are plenty of things you can buy and sell in the market. The market tab and the auction tab have different items to exchange. The marketplace has all the objects required in the game, and the auction house has all the gear and equipment to strengthen the player’s abilities. Here is a complete list of all the things available in the market.

Adventurer’s Tome Items are also from a category in the Codex. The player can either receive this item from Neria or trade it in the market of Lost Ark. The information about all these items is also given in the Codex. Here’s a complete guide on the Rohendel Adventure Tome in Lost Ark


Pets are not essentially required in Lost Ark, but these objects can follow you throughout the game. They are beneficial as they collect different dropped items and give them to the player. These collected items can give a buff to the players.

Entering the Lost Ark Market 

If you are a beginner in the Lost Ark, you cannot enter the market as the access to the market is through the public sale home. You will not have access to the public sale home initially. 

You have unlocked the public sale home once you attain character degree 30 in Lost Ark. You can then visit the Market Broker at the Luterra Castle or other main cities of the Lost Ark. 

Market Minimap

You can open the market by clicking the minimap and the gavel icon. You can enter the market wherever you want after clicking this gavel icon. 

Buying items from the Market

Pressing Alt Y, you can open the market. There will be two tabs, one showing the market and the other showing the Auction House, so you have to carefully examine where you are buying the items. 

There will be a search bar, and you can type what you want to search. You can only search for skins, battle items, honing materials, and crafting items right now. You can also trade in some resources, but you must know that some resources are available in stacks of 10 rather than in stacks of 100. 

Buying Items
Market Buying

You can move your cursor in the shopping window to learn an item’s Average Day Price from Gold or trade-in for the last five days. If the lowest price is listed next to an item in Market Online, it’s the cheapest offer. Buy it before the offer ends to avoid paying more.

You have an Interest List similar to your shopping cart. Click the pin icon next to an item to add it, making it easy to track the item’s price. My Transactions display all your listed market offers; remember, you can list up to ten items at a time. To purchase from Market Online, click the Buy button in the bottom right corner of the item, revealing its price and availability.

Collecting Gold

Earning Gold isn’t difficult in Lost Ark, and there are several ways through which a player can earn Gold. You can earn Gold by communicating with different NPCs and building relationships with them. Gold can also be earned by completing dungeons and other challenges. You can trade Gold in the marketplace if you are a smart player.

Selling Items In The Market

In Lost Ark, Selling items in Market Online is even simpler than buying items from the marketplace. You can add the item you want to sell to the market by clicking the Add Item option. You will have an inventory through which you can select an item you want to trade. 

After that, you must set the price of the item you want to sell. Then, set up the Listing period for the item. The listing period is when you want your item to be available in the market; it can be for 1 or even 10 days. 

Selling in Market

You can only retrieve your item after its deposit period ends, and it will then be removed from your inventory. The item’s total price is based on your total sales revenue, excluding tax. Items labeled “Bound to Roster” cannot be sold.

Remember that there’s a 5% tax on every item sold, equivalent to a 5 gold transaction fee for a 100 gold-priced item. Additionally, the Deposit per item cost increases if you deposit the item for three days. This fee is refundable, but the Transaction Fee is not. These rules are in place to maintain market balance and prevent flooding with player offers. Once someone purchases your item, Lost Ark will send you an email with the receipt.

Auction House

Lost Ark features an Auction House for purchasing abilities and consumable items. At the Auction House, you can trade jewelry, gems, gear, and Ability Stones. Unlike the marketplace, the Auction House involves bidding or opting for immediate purchase through the “buy now” feature.

To access the Auction House, simply click the button located below the minimap in Lost Ark. If the button isn’t visible, click “Edit Widgets” to locate it. The Auction House offers two tabs for item purchase: one for fixed-price items and another for equipment and artifacts. Prices fluctuate over time, and players bid on items, with the highest bidder outbidding others by offering more Gold.

It’s important to note that the Auction House only accepts Gold currency; items cannot be bought with silver currency.

Items in Auction House

There are different types of items available in the Auction House. Most of these items provide a player with better abilities. The Auction House has all pre-used items except the outfits that are being sold.

How Auction House Works

Buying items from the first tab works similarly to the Market Online, whereas the bidding tab works differently. Bidding allows a player to bid on any item. It’s exactly how the real auction works. 

Auction House Bidding
Lost Ark Bidding

These auction items are up for a certain time. There are different types of items; some are cheap, and others are hot ticket items that are quite expensive. The hot ticket items have bidding wars where all players bid on one item, making it way more expensive than its actual cost. 

Searching for an item that has been previously sold in the Auction House bidding tab, you can check the bid history. The bid history of the item will give you a general idea of its price and actual worth. There are tabs for an item’s current bids or rates, too. These tabs will show you your trades and your bids, too. This will help you track the item you bid on or if someone has outbid you. 


This Lost Ark Guide about its Market Online has given you details about how the market and the Auction House work. It’s a perfect place to buy and sell items and equip yourself with good gear. If you enjoyed reading this guide, look at Lost Ark Classes Guide, too.
