May 2022 Update
The daily trader cycle has changed in the May 2022 update to show weekly offers. This guide will be updated in due course to reflect these changes.
The Trader cycle refers to the order of the offers shown within the Trader’s shop. This is a 39 day sequence of offers that is the same for all players, however each player is at a different point in the sequence. The cycle last changed in December 2020.
The Trader’s Cycle
The full Trader cycle can be seen below:
What are the benefits of knowing the sequence?
Understanding when Magic Items of interest will be available within the Traders shop can help plan how to spend gems. For example, if you were planning on completing a 7 day hero upgrade with gems, this would cost 1000 gems, however purchasing a Book of Heroes from the Trader would only cost 500 gems, saving you 50% of your gems.
How to find out where you are in the cycle?
It’s possible to find out where your offers are in the cycle by comparing the offers you currently see compared to the list above. Simple, right? Unfortunately there are some days that are duplicates of others, which means you need to make a note of those offers and cross reference them with the following day’s offers. Sounds complicated… Fear not, there is a simpler solution!
