Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale Tips

Back to top
Cutting Corners - Watch your power crystals!
In the middle of a dungeon - especially one of the later dungeons which can sometimes have you fighting several monsters at once - you'll probably be rushing around a lot. However, be careful! If you kill a monster and then quickly run around a corner there's a chance that some of the power crystals will get stuck on the corner and your adventurer won't absorb them.

Granted, only one or two will get stuck but they won't get added onto your power meter and if you want to level up you'll need all the crystals you can get! If you notice that some of them are stuck rolling around the edge of the wall, you should run back and try to absorb them but if you wait too long they'll disappear!

Destroying Rotating Statue Heads- Louie
In later dungeons you might begin to notice a lot more of the rotating statue heads - those nasty things that shoot out 4 laser circles at a time. While fighting multiple enemies at a time it can become very crucial to get rid of these, but how?

If you prefer to use Louie, you'll have noticed that you can block these lasers with his shield, but only if he's being hit head-on. There's a small interval where they don't shoot lasers since there is a space between them, but the window is too small for Louie to attack without getting hit.

The best way to destroy these statues, then, is to run around and hit them from behind. They're not fast enough to turn and get you like the stationary pumpkins are but you might have to keep running in a circle to avoid them if they are at a higher level and will take more than one or two hits to destroy.

Following Shadows - Beating Pumpkins and Hornets
While in the dungeons you might notice that there are odd spots on the ground. For example, in the Amber Gardens these spots may look like a patch of grass.

If you've paid enough attention you might realize that shadows don't appear on these patches! When you walk over them, the shadows beneath your feet disappear until you walk off. If a monster walks over them, the same thing will happen to them.

This isn't much of a problem, but when you start battling those floating pumpkins they can be hard to keep track of since you won't know where they are - they're floating! If you find yourself in a swarm of pumpkins or hornets try to lure them away from the patch so you can see their shadows and figure out how close they are to you.

Haggling with Prime
Prime, Alouette's fairy, is particularly sneaky. You might offer her a perfectly decent price for an item and she'll reject it, claiming that you are charging her too much. However, most of the time... she's lying! Prime will tell you that you are charging too much when, really, she just wants to pay less. You can offer her the same price repeatedly and at the end she'll accept it.

It doesn't always work but I try to sell her items at 114% of the original price and she rejects it, only to accept it on the second try.
