# 1 Commodity Cheat Sheet
12-05-2011, 08:12 AM
Okay, with commodities suddenly more valuable than a simple Aid The Planet mission, you might want to know where best to spend your hard earned money. Fear not, fellow captains, I have done the shopping for you!

Now, all the commodities have 4 prices. From least expensive to most: Special Vendor, Space Trader, Base Price, and Replicator. For the basic and advanced commodities that translates to 50%, 75%, 100% and 150% cost. (For some reason the special commodities are always 100% cost except from the replicator where it's 150%). The latest patch has changed Special Vendors to match Space Traders at 75% for most things. Updated prices below. Base prices are unchanged!

Klingons now have Commodity Vendors!

List below is Name Base Cost (special vendor and cost)

Basic Commodities (all available from Fhoss on ESD or Gren on Qo'noS)
Medical Supplies 100 (Semek Vulcan 75)
Provisions 100 (Taryss Andoria 50)
Shield Generators 100 (Fhoss ESD / Gren Qo'Nos 75)
Communication Arrays 200 (Taryss Andoria 150)
Industrial Energy Cells 400 (Semek Vulcan 300)

Advanced Commodities (all available from Lt. Marrien on SB39 or Trenk on Ganalda)
Antigens 400 (Rek MA 300)
Astrometric Probes 400 (Rek MA 300)
Water Purification Systems 400 (Lt. Marrien SB39 / Trenk Ganalda 300)
Weather Control Systems 600 (Rek MA 450)
Industrial Replicators 800 (Lt. Marrien SB39 / Trenk Ganalda 600)

*note all of the basic and advanced commodities can be found via space traders (the cargo ships, not ferengis or Mudd) for 75% base cost (which is better than the base cost, but the same as specialized vendors for most items)

Special Commodities (all available from Konzaar on DS9 or Odenk on Drozana - both locations are cross-faction)
Warp Coils 800 (also Talut K7)
Self-Sealing Stem Bolts 800
Entertainment Provisions 800 (also Ariana Risa)
Seismic Stabilizers 1000 (also Melangogg Risa)
Terraforming Systems 1200 (also Talut K7)

*note, the specialized vendors and space traders do not give a discount on the special commodities. Not sure if this is working as intended or a bug.

Gamma Quadrant Commodities (these are obtainable either from the Cardassian Lock Box or through "Haggle" DOff missions in Cardassian space*)
Bataret Incense
Ferasan Nepata Leaves
Jevonite
Shapeshifting Lockets
Tulaberries
Unrefined Ketracel

* Cardassian space is Alpha Trianguli, Beta Ursae, Zeta Andromedae, Deep Space Nine (and I'll bet Bajor when it opens up)

Klingons do not have specialized vendors (except for the few sold by the main commodity vendors)

Excellent candidate for a sticky thread, IMO.

Thanks very much for your work on this!

KDF captains can also "obtain" commodities via certain Marauding assignments (Detain Freighter, Facility Raids, etc.). However, what your raiding parties bring back is a bit random. (Certain assignments tend to yield certain commodities, but the exact commodities and quantities are up to the random number generator.)

And, of course, Trading assignments for both sides can yield good or even spectacular results for the 2k credit outlay.

As I, in my travels, the Space Cargo ship has prices very close to those listed in the OP. There may be a couple of cheaper elsewhere, but not many. That makes a One Stop Shop, if you can keep him from flying away, inliu of doing all of the Running around.

Due to the recent patch, space traders and the specialized vendors share prices now. There are a couple exceptions (for example, provisions). So yes, chasing down the space traders is a good way to get these.

Thanks to PhyrexianHero to pointing out a typo. No, Semek is not having a super-sale on Vulcan for Industrial Energy Cells. Sorry. (It's been fixed in the OP)

Thank you for making this thread; I find it very useful and I hope you continue to expand edit this thread as the game continues to grow.

/Edit

Damn I just raised this thread after no posts for 30 days or more (sorry).

I have to close this thread but I'll try to get it a sticky or at least added to the index.
