The Trader's Forum is a section of Lion's Arch with the Mystic Forge and contains (like the name suggest) many trade services. While these services were spread around the city after its destruction, they have returned here after its rebuilt. The Trader's Forum is located north of the Grand Piazza. A portal to the north allows travel to Gendarran Fields.
