The Sims 3: World Adventures

Special merchant is an NPC status randomly assigned to a Sim living in Al Simhara, Shang Simla and Champs Les Sims when the player first visits.

Merchants[edit | edit source]

Special merchants roam their respective worlds freely, but are always visible through a map tag. Often they are found at a market. These Sims are the only ones in the game who can sell the adventure rewards.

Sims need to have a visa level of at least one to buy items and objects from a special merchant, with each new level unlocking rarer or more useful items.

Ancient coins[edit | edit source]

Ancient coins are a special type of coin that can be used to buy adventure rewards from a special merchant.

There are many ways to acquire ancient coins, and they appear in collectible piles.

  • Most adventures pay out a sum in ancient coins. (They usually also improve a Sims' visa level).
  • Finding piles in tombs and treasure chests.
  • Digging them up at dig sites.

Adventure rewards[edit | edit source]

The items are generally ones that will help a Sim on their adventures, such as dried food that never spoils, or a skeleton key. There are also items specific to the location. For example, special varieties of grapes can be bought in Champs Les Sims, France.
