Traders are dwarves that live in Keldagrim, the capital of the Dwarven Realm. They work in the Trade Octagon, a large area in the city's massive palace.

The traders are located on the first floor of the Palace in Keldagrim

The eight ruling companies of Keldagrim, the Consortium, are in constant need of labour, ore, and mining rights. Although some transactions are done formally behind desks by the companies' directors and secretaries, the large amount of trading performed often requires less formal methods. To accomplish this, the Consortium has hired traders to perform trades in the Trade Octagon.

Two traders for each company stand on each side of the Octagon, found in the centre of the city. Here they shout out their offers and look for potential deals. To help oversee this, the Trade Referee stands in the centre of the Octagon and ensures that the octagon runs as smoothly as possible.

Traders do not currently have roles in any quests, and cannot be talked to, but at level 90 Thieving, players may pickpocket them. Initially, an activity was planned for the Octagon, but as confirmed by a Jagex Moderator, this scheme has now been abandoned, replaced instead with the thieving element.

ThievingEdit

From 9 September 2009, players can pickpocket the traders. This requires a Thieving level of 90 and gives 556.5 experience if successful. The odds of success when pickpocketing traders seem to be better than elves and heroes. If a player fails to pickpocket a dwarf trader, they will be stunned for a few seconds and dealt 10 damage. There are trade floor guards around which will attack you if you fail to pickpocket the trader. The best way to handle these is to attack them with low level weapons and lure them into a nearby room to trap them. This way you can thieve without being bothered.

Players can gain up to 181,000 experience an hour from thieving dwarf traders at level 99 Thieving. 447,000 experience an hour can be gained if using the Crystal Mask spell and light form prayer while thieving from traders with level 99 Thieving. Using a Trahaearn exoskeleton set, Soul-in-a-box, black ibis, abyssal lurker familiars, an Ardougne cloak 4 and a legendary five-finger discount aura in addition to crystal mask and light form at level 99 a player can gain 1,000,000 thieving experience an hour.
