Guilds in Revelation require funding to pay for construction and maintenance of buildings. The best way to get funding is through Specialty Trading. It is similar to trade runs in BDO and Archeage in a sense that you will transport specialty goods for profit.
Here is an overview for those that prefer that format: https://youtu.be/jIQoyVqcpb4
Your character must be level 50 or higher.
Become a merchant through Nobleman Oertig in your guild base (155,-69,65) *Merchant mode deactivates if a trade is not made within 30 minutes of activation. It can be activated again in the same way.
Take the Specialty Trading Quest from Nobleman Oertig.
The quest is to earn 18,000 gyth notes from trade runs. This value requirement increases as guild levels up their Research.
Check if you did all of this by looking at your guild menu, you will see a gold coin next to your name indicating that you are now a merchant. You will also have an alpaca and a list of specialty vendors in your quest inventory.
Find a specialty vendor by looking for this icon on your world map. Vendors sell different goods depending on the area they are in. Buy goods from them to transport and sell to other areas’ vendors for higher prices.
Overstocked mean the NPC has too much and will sell it for cheaper than normal rate.
Understocked mean the NPC has too few and will sell it for higher than normal rate.
When you have reached the quest’s traded earnings threshold, you can return to Nobleman Oertig to complete the quest. You will be rewarded guild points, Ausgyth Commerce Center reputation, and around 10% of the profit made. Around 90% will go to your guild. Specialty Trading Quest can be done up to 5 times each day.
Modes of Transportation
The popular method is to use auto-path and take the road. There are however faster alternatives; Sailboats and Flying Airships.

PVP In Trade Runs
Normal PK rules apply to those on alpacas and cart when doing trade runs. They can be killed. Their specialty goods will drop on the ground as a chest. Only the original owner can pick up the chest for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, it will be lootable by anyone with merchant mode and riding an alpaca or cart.
Stolen goods can be turned in at any specialty vendor for small amounts of gyth notes.
Work in progress: Sailboats and Flying Airships routes
Trade runs give only little amounts of gyth notes for your personal use. If you want to know how to get gyth notes for yourself, here’s our guide: https://youtu.be/Z_VnuKp90Hk
