There are some nice items that are supposed to be unlocked by completing the shop quests for certain shops, by bringing those shops some trade items. There seem to be many sources for acquiring those items, e.g. treasure chests, but most of them seem to be limited.

What are efficient ways of farming for trade items like Buddhist prayer beads and Shrunken heads? Are there any renewable sources of those items?

  • Not exactly efficient but my rule of thumb, find all the chests. You'll get this for free. :) Oct 1, 2011 at 19:42

You will find majority of the trade items in chests (the rarer items are generally found in the chests in the Followers of Romulus lairs).

The only source of "renewable" items, is the thieves/bandits that rarely attack you. Each one killed will yield a large amount of money, and one trade resource (mostly ones that you'll just sell, but sometimes quest items).


You get quite a variety of items by sending your brotherhood of assassins out on missions. It lists what you will receive for each mission completed so it's a very easy way to gather rare items. If your assassins are of a decent level and you have the maximum amount, you should have no problems.
