IX

Treno Auction House is a location in the city of Treno in Final Fantasy IX. The party can bid for both normal and key items, and the former usually come in the form of add-ons, such as Dark Matter and Reflect Ring.

Story Edit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Kuja seems to be a regular, and may in fact be the owner. The auctioneer inquires in his interest in Garnet in a servant-like manner, so one might assume Kuja has brought a great deal of money to the auction house. Freya also mentions he may be King, the owner of the mansion.

Amarant was once a guard in the auction house but was fired when Zidane framed him after an attempt at thievery. This makes Amarant a wanted man throughout Treno, with posters showing his likeness at the inn.

QuestsEdit

AuctionEdit

During the auction, generally there are two key items and two pieces of equipment, usually add-ons. The key items bought in the auction can almost always be sold to the nobles walking around Treno, and it is easy to make a profit on an item.

The Elixir is removed from the auction if more than five are present in the party's inventory. A useful way to avoid a bidding war is to bid after the auctioneer's asks "Any more?" right before he declares the item sold. This temporarily halts the countdown but helps avoid most of the bidding.

A key item called Magical Fingertip is one of the items available in the auction. The Magical Fingertip can be given to the old man near the inn in Daguerreo to obtain Excalibur. The player must first talk to the man to make Magical Fingertip appear in the auction, and the player needs to have bought Une's Mirror, Doga's Artifact, Griffin's Heart, and the Rat Tail and sell them in the town to make the Magical Fingertip available. These items can be sold to the nobleman and adventurer that walk around the Bishop's House and the scholar in the synthesis shop.

Additionally, Doga's Artifact and Une's Mirror can be taken to the Black Mage Village's gramophone to play "Doga and Unei" from Final Fantasy III. Aside from these uses, owning these key items can increase the Treasure Hunter Rank.

Selling key items to citizens of Treno Edit

After purchasing some of the key items in the auction, they can be sold to the nobles for a profit. Once sold, the items will reappear in the auction. The player can choose to decline the first offer to get a higher price (won't work for Doga's Artifact).

Item Person 1st offer 2nd offer
Griffin's Heart Adventurer at Cafe. 8,000 10,000
Doga's Artifact Scholar in Synthesis Shop. 10,000 N/A

These items cannot be sold to their respective NPCs again when won a second time from the Treno Auction House. Reacquisition is only advised if the player is working on the Treasure Hunter Rank.
