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. Trader's Forum is located north of the Grand Piazza. A portal to the north allows travel to Gendarran Fields.

- Citizen (1): I've watched visitors throw a wide assortment of items into those swirling mists.
- Citizen (1): One asura in particular must have tossed in over two dozen exotic weapons.
- Citizen (1): It made me realize that Zommoros has probably collected an impressive arsenal by now.

- Zommoros: Not all of them! But still, a lot! If you're one of the lucky few to get an invite, feel free to drop in.
- Mystic Forge Skritt: Come, come! Into the Mystic Forge!
- (Zommoros and the skritt vanish into the Mystic Forge while Miyani cheers.)

- Prior to the rebuilding of Lion's Arch, an explorable sewer system, The Bilge, was located beneath the Trader's Forum.
- The ambient dialogue with Zommoros and the skritt was released alongside the Mythwright Gambit raid. The dialogue triggers every other hour and ends with skritt throwing loot at the audience which can be claimed once a day.
- The sculpture over bank area is made to resemble an octopus, while the structure over the crafting station is a starfish.
- In the crafting area, near the Jeweling Station, there are several boxes and cabinets with a flag in the middle placed in a way that closely resembles a Super Mario level.
