Shop Titans is a new iOS and Android game that puts a spin on the traditional RPG trope of the equipment shop where the heroes go to restock. In this game, you play the shopkeeper, and your goal is to sell all kinds of equipment to the heroes, the king, and many other characters that you might find in an old-school RPG.
You can hire tailors, blacksmith, craftsmen, and more to make items for you, sell them in your shop, and decorate your shop in order to bring in more customers. You can earn coins, gems, and a whole raft of other goodies as you get further into the game, too.

One thing that you want to focus on in your shop is to always have enough equipment available for your customers to buy. When crafting equipment, take a look at what you either have run out of, or what you’re about to run out of, and use that as your guide for what to craft next.
Start buying decorations for your shop as soon as possible. Decorations increase prestige, which does not increase customer traffic or item rarity, but instead it allows you to move up a prestige leaderboard. Another benefit of decorations is that when a customer interacts with them, they will give you free energy.
When you’re buying decorations for your shop, compare the amount of coins spent to the amount of prestige gained for each one. Purchase the decorations that earn the highest amount of prestige for the least amount of coins. Sometimes, these will be slightly more expensive decorations, but they’re worth saving up for.
You can sell or store any unwanted decorations if you need to make more room. You will especially need to do this as you level up your shop, because each time that you gain a level, you’ll unlock more new decorations in the shop.
Send your heroes out on quests, but be aware that they have a chance of losing the battle and making it back with no treasure. To maximize their chances of victory, give them the best equipment possible. For each hero, tap on the optimize to automatically equip them with the best equipment available to them.
Also, of course, save up the money to unlock new hero slots. You can put up to three heroes, plus one champion, into a party. Once you unlock a hero slot, you’ll be able to get the new hero for free.
There is an energy mechanic in this game, but it’s usage is entirely unique. Energy will allow you to add a surcharge to equipment that you sell. Selling at normal price gives you one energy, and making small talk can restore two or three of your energy. Selling at a discount restores a large number of energy.
So to make the most money for the amount of energy that you use, add the surcharge to your most expensive pieces of equipment. The black robe is great for this early on. Put a discount on your cheapest pieces of equipment, so that you’re not losing much money when you sell them.
Make sure to join a guild as soon as possible. When you do, you and other players will be able to help each other upgrade your craftsman. They’ll help you out, but make sure that you also help them out in return.
If somebody comes in asking for a rare or epic item, and you don’t have a shot at crafting it anytime soon, you can refuse in order to send them away. If you think you have a good shot at crafting it, though, you can simply ask them to wait, start crafting as much of that item as you can in the hopes of getting a rare one, and then sell them the item as soon as you craft it.
Keep crafting the same item over and over to upgrade the blueprint. When you upgrade the blueprint, you will earn one and a half times the amount of money per sale without having to take any extra time to craft it. To make the most money, focus on upgrading the blueprints of your most expensive items first, so that they become even more expensive quickly.
You can get plenty of free gems in this game. Like any other game with a premium currency, the best way to earn gems is to buy them, but there are enough free ones to satisfy any free player. Complete achievements to earn gems, first of all. Also, go to your to-do list and complete items on that list. There are three at a time on the list, and when you complete the list, you’ll get the reward and the tasks will reset.
