Swipp is a male Fae Dragon in Flight Rising who runs a stand at the Trading Post. He is on the lookout for item trades; some of his deals are trades to turn less valuable items into more valuable items, such as trading silver for gold, while others are unique familiars and apparel only obtainable through trading with him. Swipp's daughters, Pipp and Tripp, introduced upon the expansion of his stall on October 29th, 2015, can occasionally be found at the stand offering their own trades with an added fee - 1000 treasure for Pipp's trades and 2000 treasure for Tripp's. In some cases it's better to wait for Swipp himself to offer the trade without the fee as you can lose more money than you'd gain for some trades; especially the Broken Penny Jar swap where you can lose either 800 or 1800 treasure depending on which daughter you trade with since the jar itself only gives 200 treasure from opening it.
Swipp is described as a savvy Fae who has a watchful eye out for the next big trend and could be considered outgoing, as he used to call people "friend". He no longer does this since the expansion of his stall gave him multiple new dialogue boxes. Pipp tries very hard to be like her dad when she's selling the player something. She uses similar tactics and phrases to convince whomever she's selling to that it's worth paying extra for. Pipp's dialogue makes her seem very energetic, peppy, and overeager. Tripp on the other hand comes across as snarky, cynical, and generally unhelpful. She makes it clear that selling or trading things is that last thing she wants to be doing.
Swipp offers 12 random trades daily that cycle every two hours - not as often as Crim's hourly lists, but not as rarely as Pinkerton's daily gifts from his Plundered Pile. Pipp and/or Tripp will also sometimes appear with an extra trade, making a maximum possible three trades available every two hours.
Swipp trades for a variety of items gained throughout the game, and users have put together a Google spreadsheet you can have your username placed on to be pinged when Swipp offers certain items. This can be done by following the instructions on the associated thread. There is also a reference list of Swipp's requested items in the order in which they appear in a user's hoard. As of May 10th, 2014, the on-site encyclopedia has been updated to include a page on Swipp. This includes a list of his trades. Using this list, his trades can be broken down into six groups:
Some of the items that can be obtained from Swipp can be gotten elsewhere like the Coliseum or the Marketplace. However, a lot of them can only be obtained from Swipp (excluding buying them from other players in the Auction House). The item trades listed above are exclusive to Swipp unless specified otherwise.
The following items used to be available from Swipp, but have since been removed from his trading list. These items can still be gotten by other means. They are listed in alphabetical order with what they required and when they were retired from Swipp's list.
Hi there, and welcome to Swipp's Swap Stand! Would you by chance be interested in [ITEMNAME]? A personal favorite of mine! Just a small one-time payment of 1000 and the items on the right and it's yours!
I know my dad doesn't ask for 1000, but I had to procure this [ITEMNAME] myself! I only have a few left, and it's certainly a better bargain than Tripp will ever offer!
Dad's been teaching me the ropes! Can I interest you in [ITEMNAME]? Only an additional 1000 more than my dad's deal. You'll just love it!
Or... we've got [ITEMNAME]. Quite rare, right, pop? For only 1000 and the items on the right, this great deal can be yours!
My sister Tripp might enjoy this if she gave it a better shot! How about this [ITEMNAME] for the items on the right and 1000?
Or... have a look at [ITEMNAME]! Only a few left in this condition! Let's trade for the items on the right and a small fee of 1000 - you'll be my favorite customer!
Or... hey! Hey! Check out [ITEMNAME]! It's a great little piece. For just 1000 and some items---where are you going??
Yes yes, I see you have your eye on the [ITEMNAME]! What a quality [ITEMNAME] this is! Only the finest [ITEMNAME] is offered at our stand! Care to trade for a one time payment of 1000 and a few items?
We've only got a few [ITEMNAME] left! Will you be one of the lucky ones?? Only need a few items from you and a small fee of 1000. Pleasure seeing you today!
Pipp's way too excited about the family business... She should be selling this [ITEMNAME], not me! Anyway, you give me the items on the right and 2000 and I promise you that I'll maybe stop whining so much.
Oh, look... I managed to find the last [ITEMNAME]--oh who am I kidding, we have like five hundred of 'em back there. Oh, and also give me 2000.
This [ITEMNAME] is certainly a [ITEMNAME]. Sornieth purchase taxes amount to 2000, by the way.
All my friends are out flying and I'm stuck trying to sell you [ITEMNAME]. What a great day. 2000 might make me feel better, though...
I see you looking at this [ITEMNAME], you know. Gonna need some items and 2000 first.
...why are you still here? If you love looking at the [ITEMNAME] so much, just give me some items and 2000 and take it home. Then you can stare at it somewhere away from me!
Yeah, this [ITEMNAME] you like so much? My dad sold out of them last week. I saved a small stockpile and now I have a monopoly on the things. "Bribe" is a strong word to throw around, but I think it's applicable. Give me 2000 and these items and maybe I'll give you [ITEMNAME].
My enthusiasm to be hawking this [ITEMNAME] is far lower than its already meager price. And by meager, I mean the items on the right and an additional 2000.
Look... I don't really even care if you buy [ITEMNAME]. I have way better things that I could be doing. Oh, and there'll also be a "transaction fee" of 2000.
Oh boy, oh boy. Have you ever just wanted [ITEMNAME] so badly? Well, cough up 2000 and the items on the right. This ain't Pinkerton's Plundered Pile.
