Don’t give to Kobo!

Here is a list of some of the items I can think of that should never be traded with Kobo. They are all drops from monsters (not gifts) and are used to create good gear.

    Might want to add the runes that shouldn’t be traded like the one for the sword you get from Aurora and the rune from Agamemnon use to make the shield. I am afraid to trade anything as it’s a tad confusing. Thank you for the pictures they help

    Thanks so much! I’ve gotten more help from you here than I have with CA / Wiki help! I’ve been trading the serpent eggs with Kobo but you’re right, I’ve gotten nothing good from him yet.

    O, this is very helpful. I keep worrying that I would accidentally trade the drops from giants. Kobo has been decent to me– 1 devotion, 2 arrows, 1 death touch gauntlet. 🙂

    Just found this blog and subscribing. Thank you for taking the time to write your CA thoughts!

      Hi do you remember what you traded for the 2 arrows? For Castle Age on Face Book.

      • June 14, 2015 at 6:57 am

        Nope, sorry—it was just random things. I think it is pure luck.

    good items to trade: pieces of poseidon’s horn, map of atlantis (once you have the area opened) map pieces, and check your lesser generals, if they’re equipped with the items they need from alchemy, then you can trade those pieces to Kobo as well. I stay away from all other trades. It does NOT matter what you trade, or what combination you trade, Kobo will STILL drop either junk or epic items. So stick with the things that just don’t matter.

    I don’t see Poseidon’s fins on this list, but I know they can be traded. Hope this helps!
