Garnet at the Auction

Treno Auction House is a location in the city of Treno in Final Fantasy IX. The party can bid for both normal and key items there. The former usually comes in the form of Add-Ons, such as Dark Matter and Reflect Ring.


Story

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

The Auction is part of the storyline. Kuja seems to be a regular here, although there is some in-game rumors supporting the fact that he may be the owner, Lord King. The auctioneer inquires in his interest in Garnet, although in a servant-like manner, so we can safely assume that he has brought a great deal of money to the Auction House. Freya also mentions that he may be King, the owner of the mansion. Also, Amarant Coral was once a guard in the Auction House, but was fired when Zidane framed him, after an attempt at thievery. This theft, occurring before the game's storyline begins, makes Amarant a wanted man throughout Treno; there are posters showing his likeness at the Inn.

Auction

During the auction, generally there are two key items, and two pieces of equipment, usually Add-Ons. The key items bought in the auction can almost always be sold to the nobles walking around Treno, and it is quite easy to make a profit on an item. Add-ons, such as Dark Matter, Ribbon, and Anklets are removed from the auction if the player has one in their inventory, but this can be fixed by equipping a character it. The Elixir is removed if more than five are present in the inventory. An useful way to avoid a bidding war is to bid after the auctioneer's second "last" call; right before he declares the item sold. This temporarily halts the countdown, but helps avoid most of the bidding.

A key item called Magical Fingertip is one of the items buyable in Auction. If you give it to man in Daguerreo, you will obtain Excalibur. However, you must first talk to that man to make Magical Fingertip appear. Second, the player needs to have bought Une's Mirror, Doga's Artifact, the Griffin's Heart, and the Rat Tail, and sell them in the town. After this, the Magical Fingertip will become available to buy. Aditionally Doga's Artifact and Une's Mirror can be taken to the Black Mage Village's gramophone, to play "Doga and Unei" (The Truth) from Final Fantasy III. Aside from these uses, owning these keys items can highly increase your treasure hunter rank.
