相当数量的人按照原价购买商品。这实在令人遗憾,因为买卖本身即是一场不需请柬的全民游戏。这场游戏主题为讨价还价,郑重其事的同时亦不失之优雅。在艾尔斯威尔,店家通常会为潜在买家无偿提供热茶和糖果,并在洽谈生意之前来上一系列亲切寒暄。此种不同寻常的传统礼仪自有其现实意义,此举令消费者有足够的时间来品鉴商品。如若你不认可以上规矩便被认为欠缺教养,尽管买方并无必须接受之义务。

不管这种传统是否为当地文化的一部分,面带微笑,礼貌交涉对于买卖双方都是明智之举,恰似角斗士决斗前的互相致意一般。

砍价在泰姆瑞尔全境均广为盛行,然而如若你的报价与店主的预期相距甚远,平衡便会被打破。你可以试着用6金买标价10金的商品,再看店家会怎么对你。

不要对商品表现出过多兴趣,同时亦不可对商品的品质吹毛求疵,即便它们确实存在缺陷。更好的方式是对先对其制作工艺大加赞赏,然后再对无法为当前标价买单深表遗憾。当商家微笑着边大赞你的眼光,边向你极力推荐时,要表现的无动于衷。

游戏进行的先决条件是合理为商家归类,别先入为主的认为乡野商贩愚昧容易对付,也别有城里奸商只卖次品这一成见。特别指出,大篷车(商队)通常都是理想的买卖交易场所。

了解自己所需以及明智选择交易对象的能力需要长年累月的实践积累,进入某个商店之前,最好了解该地域商品以及商人的普遍共性。同时也要留意地域偏见。以我的故乡晨风为例,亚龙人就经常被广泛质疑。当你进入商店之后,如若发现店主因担心你偷窃物品而寸步不离,千万不要惊讶,也不要认为店主无礼。与之类似,诺德人,布列顿人以及帝国人亦常被夏暮岛商人冷眼相待。当然,据我所知,没有任何地方的任何店家足以开明到放任虎人和木精灵随意进出店铺而不加警惕,就连虎人和木精灵店主自身亦不例外。

如果你的确喜欢或者需求某种商品,请马上以尽可能实惠的价格买下。我无法详尽告诉你,我到底错过多少有趣的稀罕文物,仅仅是认为我一定能在这片区域的其他地方,譬如一个更大的城镇,以更优惠的价格买到手。等我意识到自身错误时以为时已晚,一周后当我重返那个商店,东西往往已被买走。即使事后发现自己当时自认超值的商品在另一个地方的售价更低也远比永远错过购买的机会要好得多。偶尔的冲动,是最好的购买要诀。

把握游戏动向,每个人都能赢。

The Buying Game
by Adabael Timsar-Dadisun
Tips on buying and selling


So many people simply buy the items they need at the price they are given. It's a very sad state of affairs, when the game is really open to all, you don't need an invitation. And it is a game, the game of bargaining, to be played seriously and, I hasten to add, politely. In Elsweyr, it is common for the shop-owner to offer the prospective buyer tea or sweetmeats and engage in polite conversation before commencing the business. This eminently civilized tradition has a practical purpose, allowing the buyer to observe the wares for sale. It is considered impolite not to accept, though it does not imply obligation on the part of the buyer.
Whether this particular custom is part of the culture or not, it's wise for the buyer and seller to greet one another with smiles and warm salutations, like gladiators honoring one another before the battle.
Bargaining is expected all over Tamriel, but the game can be broken if one's offer is so preposterously low that it insults the shop-keeper. If you are offered something for ten gold pieces, try offering six and see where that takes you.
Do not look like you're very interested, but do not mock the quality of the goods, even if they deserve it. Much better to admire the quality of workmanship, but comment that, regretfully, you simply cannot afford such a price. When the shop-keeper compliments your taste, smile, but try to resist the flattery.
A lot of the game depends on recognizing the types of shop-keepers and not automatically assume that the rural merchant is ignorant and easily fooled, or that the rapacious city merchant is selling shoddy merchandise. Caravans, it should be mentioned, are always good places to go to buy or trade.
Knowing what you're buying and from whom is a talent bought only after years of practice. Know the specialties of certain regions and merchants before you even step foot in a shop. Recognize too the prejudices of the region. In Morrowind, where I hail from, for example, Argonians are viewed with a certain amount of suspicion. Don't be surprised or insulted if the shopkeepers follow you around the shop, assuming you're going to steal something. Similarly, NordsBretons, and Cyrodiilsare sometimes treated coolly by merchants in the Summurset Isles. Of course, I don't know any shopkeepers anywhere, no matter their open-mindedness, who aren't alerted when a Khajiit or aBosmer enters their shop. Even Khajiiti and Bosmeri shopkeepers.
If you see something you really like or need, buy it then and there at the best price you can get. I cannot tell you how many times I passed up a rare and interesting relic, assuming that I could find it elsewhere in the region, perhaps at a larger town at a better price. Too late, I discovered I was wrong, and when I returned to the shop weeks later, the item I wanted was gone. Better to get a great purchase at a decent price and discover it again at a worse price than to miss out on your opportunities for ownership. Occasionally impulsiveness is the best buying strategy.
Sense the moves of the game, and everyone can win.
