2nd users with almost no Post history in the last 4 years,but suddenly an expert in Bartering. I'll take a few points. Dailies - there is LFG channel on discord for it, there are also Bartering guilds that help players do Dailies, daily. I also i did Dailies in Imp Sailboat, and it took like 2 hours solo, 2xTime faster on Improved Frigate, and even more faster on Carrack. T4 Stacks are short when you spend tons of Parley on Sea Coins, 10m - so not doing them, would remove your stack problem. Also being smart from the start and stacking lots of Lifeskill buffs, will reduce your Parley cost and help your stack problem. As for Investment - you start with a Sailboat or Frigate - that's your investment - after that you make money from Bartering to support your progress. The thing with Bartering is you need to be smart about it, knowledge and time are the key factors here, not silver, gear or Cash shop.
