I was just wondering what time merchants and other weapon vendors generally set up shop? I have yet to get a sword for E1 and ideally wanted to have bought one as early in the day as possible.
Earlier than that…
I suspect that the traders are starting to set up on site around Thursday. If not, they will probably be open pretty early (10am?) on Friday, for people just like you
Most of them are usually trading Thursday night.
Yeah, most have at least opened up by Thursday even if they are still putting the finishing touches on their stands.
