Trade nodes

From Europa Universalis 4 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Trade nodes are 76 static "locations" on the map where trade can be conducted utilizing merchants. Trade nodes are not tied to specific provinces - even if the graphical representation can seem as if that is the case. Instead, nodes are tied to a collective of provinces, each contributing its trade value to determine the overall local wealth generated for the node. The node value can be modified by improving base production wealth, trade goods price changes, constructing manufactories or steering trade to and from the node.

As a general rule, controlling more territory in a node helps in gaining high trade power within that node, although this could also be achieved by controlling only provinces with trade modifiers (i.e. Estuary.png estuary or Province trade power value.png center of trade). Other means of increasing trade power involve sending Merchants.png merchants or a fleet of Lightship.png light ships to the node. Picking certain idea groups or opportunities to increase Mercantilism.png mercantilism will improve the effectiveness of these methods.

Nodes[edit]

Note:The table below mentions Inland sea even though trade-wise they are not different from other sea-nodes. This is done to mark nodes in which Galley.png galleys (or transports) can also be used for pirate hunting missions - though, while in mission, these fleets may occasionally arrive at non-inland sea provinces.
