There are many stores found in the game, usually inside towns. Stores sell almost all types of equip-able items. Each store is of a certain type (ie. jewelry, swords, light armor), which will determine the inventory that it stocks for sale.

Stores will also buy any item you choose to sell. This is a leftover from the earlier versions in which it was harder to unlock the Transmogrification Chest. There's usually no real point to selling an item to a store; the Transmogrification Chest will give the same amount of gold as the store; AND will give energy to the Sher'Tul Fortress once you have unlocked the fortress. However, the Transmogrification Chest will give a maximum of 25 gold per item transmogrified, whereas there a few stores that have a higher maximum payment for sold items: the lost merchant's shop in Last Hope, and Kaltor's Shop, will buy for a maximum of 35 gold, and gem stores (in Derth, Irkkk, the Iron Council, and Point Zero) will buy for a maximum of 30 gold. Therefore, it is theoretically optimal to sell certain expensive items to those shops instead of transmogrifying them, if the fortress energy does not matter.

Stocking and Restocking

Stores will be restocked under certain conditions, which depends on the campaign being played. Restocking adds new items to the store's inventory for sale, and. Items that the player has sold to a store will removed from the store's inventory before restocking, but other items will be kept. Restocking is announced with the message "Most stores should have new stock now.".

Store inventory is generated when the player accesses the store (both the initial stocking, and after the condition is met for the store to be restocked).

Most shop inventory is randomly generated, but there are some guaranteed items (such as lore in libraries).

Item generation depends on the base level of the zone, and the zone's material level range. For the generation of store items, these values can be overridden, depending on the store. The base level influences what items are likely to generate Needs verification, and items outside the material range cannot generate. Each zone can have a list of base levels to use for generating store items at each (re)stock. If this list does not exist, or if it has been exhausted, then the normal base level of the zone will be used.

There are three ways the material level range can be set:

  • It can be dependent on the player level used. When a store is first stocked, the player level used is 8. When a store is restocked, the player level used is the player's level from when the condition was met for the store to be restocked (not the player's level when opening the store). If the player level is exactly 5, the material range will be 1 to 2. Else the max material level will be 1 + one material level for every 10 player levels (up to 5), and the min material level will be 1 less than the max (not below 1).
    • For example, at initial stocking (player level 8), the material range will be 1 to 1, so there will only be tier 1 items in the store.
    • At player level 20, the material range will be 2 to 3, so the store would be restocked with tier 2 or tier 3 items.
  • Otherwise the material range of the zone will be used, so it will not change unless the material range of the zone changes.
  • Some stores ignore material levels, and so can generate items of any material level (i.e. 1 to 5).

Stores in Maj'Eyal: The Age of Ascendancy

Most stores in Age of Ascendancy use the level for material level ranges. The exceptions are stores that only sell fixed lore (where it doesn't matter), and stores in the Gates of Morning or Kroshkkur.

Stores are restocked as you level up:

  • New items at level 10 (Tier 1-2 if using the player level)
  • New items at level 20 (Tier 2-3 if using the player level)
  • New items at level 30 (Tier 3-4 if using the player level)
  • New items at levels 40 and 50 (Tier 4-5 if using the player level)

In addition to the standard inventory for each store type, there are a few special features in certain stores:

Stores in The Arena: Challenge of the Master

There is a store available in The Arena. It appears at the start of the game, and after defeating each boss (except the final boss).

The store contains 64 items, chosen from a long list of item types. This list does not include item types introduced in Embers of Rage. Needs verification The store, like the Arena zone, has no material limits (tier 1 to 5 items can appear). Needs verification The store is completely reset each time it appears.

Stores in Orcs: Embers of Rage

Stores are restocked upon the completion of certain quests: You Shall Pass!, The Deconstruction of Falling Stars, and Hunter, Quarry.

In addition to the town stores in Orcs: Embers of Rage, certain zones can randomly have Ancient Automated Archives, which are portable vending machines. These can be reprogrammed to relocate to Kruk Pride. The Embers campaign also has one special zone which is a special store: Kaltor's Shop.

AAAs that sell lites and pickaxes ignore normal material level restrictions, so they can sell items of any material level (i.e. 1 to 5) regardless of where they are found.

The stores in the Gates of Morning are still there in this campaign's version, but they aren't accessible due to being aligned to the Sunwall, a hostile faction. Needs verification
