Ethereal Soul-Trader is an ethereal companion who sells wares using a unique currency to players.


They can be summoned using the [Soul-Trader Beacon], which can only be received through World of Warcraft TCG (trading card game). The currency is obtained from getting the killing blow on something that counts towards honor or experience for the player.

When summoned:

I have arrived. Shall we set to work, then?

Occasionally when siphoning Essence:

Ah, more essence to capture...
Here is your share.

How may this one help you, <sir/madame>?

Gossip How does this work?

My business partner slays things; I drain a portion of their essence... a pittance, really; the slightest of slivers. It won't be missed.
Still, to fulfil[sic] my portion of the contract, I pay in Ethereal Credits.
One may redeem these credits for items I sell at any time. I'm bound to have something that will interest you...
