An art merchant's shop in Renaissance Rome

A merchant is a person who buys and sells items and commodities.

Types

Trading

Ezio Auditore da Firenze was also able to sell various items that he collected to the merchants of Rome. Virtually any item that could be stolen or looted could be sold for a portion of its value.

Shops on Tiber Island also offered a selection of special items, which could be claimed in exchange for a number of rare items.[2] Among these were:

  • Vatican treasure map - Art merchant
  • Seusenhofer armor pieces - Blacksmith
  • Captain's Sword - Blacksmith
  • Fast-acting poison - Doctor
  • Large pouch for crossbow bolts - Tailor

During the Golden Age of Piracy, the pirate captain and Assassin Edward Kenway commanded a fleet from his home and hideout on Great Inagua that traded with many cities accessible by the Atlantic Ocean.[5]

Kanien'kehá:ka Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton was able to sell various hunting spoils at any general store in the colonial cities and the Frontier for a profit.[4]

Trivia

  • Merchant stalls in Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's time period served to be a handy escape option, as he could dive through them to avoid running through a crowd of citizens.
    • In the PC version of Assassin's Creed, there was also a secondary mission called "Merchant Stand Destruction", in which Altaïr needed to destroy a set number of merchant stands within a time limit. The explanation for this was that the targeted merchants were selling products that were causing illnesses.
  • In the Xbox 360 version of Assassin's Creed, the "Gifted Escapist" achievement was unlocked for diving through twenty merchant stands.
  • Should Ezio walk under a merchant stall banner that indicated its type, the banner would move, even though he was too short for his head to touch it.
