Trading goods with Neko (means "Cat").

Note: Facilities in the Palico Ranch specific to hiring, training, and optimizing your Palicos will be discussed in the section "Your Palico Companions", as Palicos are like their own entire game's worth of complexity!

The Trader in this game is Neko (means "Cat") . That is his full name, you must always refer to him by his full name. To call him "Neko" will result in many people frowning in disapproval in your general direction.

Similar to the Wycoon in 4 Ultimate and other similar facilities in previous installments, Neko (means "Cat") handles everything related to your resource points. Here is where you can spend them!

The first, and most useful thing that Neko (means "Cat") can handle for you is Order Items .

Request Trade is how you start farming. You will start the game with one cart, keep on fighting through the solo or multiplayer campaign to eventually unlock a maximum of three! Once you request a trade, you'll see a new form you need to fill out.

Option Explanation
Trade This will start the trade.
Palico Enthusiasm Select the Palico who will man this cart. Select one with high enthusiasm for a bountiful harvest!
Item You will start off with not many options but here are the four you will eventually get: Sunsnug Farm, Jumbo Shroom Mountain, Moga Bee Yard, and Tanzia Fish Market. Each farm will allow you to multiply a different class of items
Rounds How many "days" do you want this to go far? Minimum is one day, maximum is ten. Cycle an in-game day by completing a quest.
Gratuity Use a gratuity item to increase your odds of a better harvest. Examples include Lagniapples

Trading carts with Neko (means "Cat").

The Odds star meter will increase as your chances of more items harvested go up. The cost is how many resource points this farm cycle will cost you. Some items, like Herbs, are very cheap. Others, like Dragon Toadstools, are very expensive. When the farming is done, go to View Inbox to send the harvest to your item box!

Aside from farming, you can also buy things. Browse Wares lets you look through what Neko (means "Cat") has to offer you. Trade Goods are your usual items. Neko (means "Cat") will sell things like Herbal Medicines, Boomerangs, Nutrients, and various fish baits. Some, like the fish baits, aren't very useful. Others, like Immunizers, are cumbersome to keep combining and are very easy and convenient to buy here instead if you have resource points. As you progress through the game, you will be able to buy more and more valuable wares.

Special Goods are, well, special. First, Neko (means "Cat") will sell Oils . These are coatings that you can apply to the Sword and Shield weapon only and will buff the weapon temporarily. If you are a Sword and Shield user be sure to buy Oils and use them regularly. You can also buy Reverse Ambrosia , hard to find anywhere else, to undo any elemental buffs applied to the Insect Glaive's Kinsect . You can also buy jewels for Decorations and Armor Spheres.

Limited Goods are goods you can buy that aren't actually useful, but are for your aesthetic. You can buy new titles to customize your guild card with (such as "Magic" and "Dragon Slayer"). You can buy outfits for Poogie and really who wouldn't want to put their Poogie in a yukata?! And finally, you can buy new backgrounds for your Guild Card!

Finally, Special Permits can be purchased here. It costs special permits to go on quests that hunt Deviant monsters, so be sure to stock up on these. As you unlock more Deviant monsters you will unlock more types of permits to buy from Neko (means "Cat").
