Do you need Platinum, Tenno?
I welcome you to this little corner, a place where we talk about matters more subtle in my opinion, if we compare them with the crudity and brutality of combat. I am sure that all of you know how to wield your weapons in one way or another but, Do you know how to trade?
Here we are going to help to answer this question, so all Tenno know the basis of trading in Warframe Universe.
How do I start an exchange?
In the three places where you can trade you can “Set Up Shop”, to do that you simply need to press the gear key “Q” and, on the right, the option “Open your Store” will appear. When you do that, you will see a menu with 5 slots. When you select one of them you can choose any tradeable item, including Platinum, you have in your inventory.
Once you open your Store and find a buyer, you only need to get closer and start the exchange.
In the Clan Dojos there is a difference, you have the “Trading Console”. When you get close to it, you will see a device to interact with. When you use this device, a list with the Tenno in the Dojo will appear. Select the Tenno with whom you want to trade and start the exchange.
The menu that will appear is exactly the same which appears when you open your shop, 5 slots where you can place the items you want to exchange or sell.
In any case, if you do not coincide in the same session, you will have to invite form one of these trading places the other Tenno to make sure you are in the same place to be able to trade. To do that select the name in the chat and press the option “invite”.
How do you change the server and language?
The most simple way is to select the language you want in the game launcher. In this window, on the top right you can see a drop-down list. Select the language you want and that’s all. When you enter in the game, both menus and chats will be in the language you have selected.
In some cases, there are different regions with the same language, for example with “English” language you have the regions “North America” and “Europe”. This can be changed form the menu in “Options”, “Game”, “Region”. There are the following Regions:
Changing the region inside a server is only possible if the players of the different regions speak the same language. So, when you change the region the language will not be modified. For that, we can tell this is only useful if you want to trade with players in North America or Europe, because they are the only regions with the same language. Maybe some of you will find this useful.
Why is interesting to change the server and region?
Trade in Warframe is “free”, this means that there is no fixed prices for anything, because there are the Tenno themselves who set the prices of the tradeable items.
All this means that the price of the same object for some Tenno will be “expensive”, for other will be “fair” and there will be some who think that there is “cheap”. And that happens with the prices per “Region”.
One example of this is the Prime junk. Try to change the language and you will see the differences between the regions.
Are there rules and prices in Trade?
The answer is NO. There are limitations in trade, as we already see, about the tradeable objects, but there is not any rule beyond that. The prices are free, determined by the supply and demand, so any object is worth what Tenno are willing to pay for it.
Does this mean that there are no frauds? The answer is no, there are no scams in a free market. But that doesn’t mean that there are no Tenno who take advantage of the ignorance, abusing of those who do not know the value of the things they have.
How can you avoid a scam?
The only way to avoid it is being informed as much as possible before trading. I recommend you to ask other Tenno about this topic, and there is no better place to ask than a Clan. The scams among Tenno of the same clan are very rare and most of the times are sanctioned by Clan’s officers.
If you don’t have a Clan, the other option is ask in the Region chat, where there are many Tenno willing to help. Don’t be afraid of asking, something very positive about Warframe Universe is that we count with one of the best player communities, and you can see it.
Why is trading so important?
Trading is one of the essential pillars in Warframe for many reasons, being one of the most important the possibility to obtain items you can not get otherwise. The other thing is that offers the possibility to all Tenno to earn Platinum without spending real money.
I think we all agree that if you do not have Platinum in Warframe, your life will be more difficult, because this is the only way to get some things essential for any Tenno.
