The price of using the rugs can be halved from 200 to 100 coins with a Ring of Charos(a). The price will naturally be halved and can be reduced to a further 75 coins if one takes part in the Rogue Trader activity.
Alongside the Desert Tasks update, Rug Merchants now offer the option to 'Fast-Travel' for 1000 coins instead of their usual price (500 coins after completing the Rogue Trader activity). This will skip the travel animation and get you to your destination in just a few seconds instead of the traditional, more scenic route.
After having completed the easy Desert Tasks, once per day the rug merchant can be asked for a bag of lost items.
- The examine info "A man who deals in rugs." is a pun on drug dealers as 'rug dealer' and 'drug dealer' sound similar.
