All three of these categories have their three own rooms where more than 400 players can trade at a time. If you are not finding an item in the first room, you can join the other to find the item there. Once you have found the item you are looking for, you will be able to request that person for the item and then give them a required amount of gold or an item that they want to complete the trade.
