The Ethereal Soul-Trader is quite possibly the most exciting companion pet available. He has many interesting features…
- He's full size.
- After summoning, he says “I have arrived. Shall we set to work, then?”
- Whenever you kill a mob, he absorbs their souls in exchange for Ethereal Credit.
- When siphoning a mob's soul essence, he will occasionally say “Ah, more essence to capture…Here is your share.”
- Ethereal Credit is only earned from mobs that are capable of rewarding experience or honor.
- The clothing sold by the Ethereal Soul-Trader is very similar to the attire worn by the members of The Consortium.
- The item is level 20, but has no level requirement. It can be used by even level one characters.

Here are a couple of pics showing what the completed set of armor looks like. The entire set will run you 2200 Ethereal credits.
Note: Although the Ethereal Soul-Trader is a vendor for his specialty wares, he is not available for selling; however, you can buy items back from him.
The Soul-Trader Beacon also has a small chance to be found within Landro's Pet Box.
Due to an a lag exploit, the Ethereal Soul-Trader was hot fixed to not be usable in battlegrounds or arena, so you cannot summon him in zoned PvP instances. Sorry… 🙁
