Shop Questions/Survey

Based on feedback from demo players and testers, the top complaint about Blackmoon Prophecy II thus far is that shops don't feel interesting enough to visit in some towns. I want to change this, so I've got a few questions relating to shops in the game that I'd love to have answered by anyone who would like to take a minute to answer them!

1. How is the variety in the following shops thus far? You can simply say good, bad, decent, etc. if you wish.
A) Armor Shops
B) Crafting Shops
C) Item Shops
D) Magic Tome Shops
E) Relic Shops
F) Rosetta Stone Shops

2. How many new items would you like to see appear in each town? Do you want an increase in item quality in each town, or just items that are "different" and aren't necessarily better, but still offer advantages or stand out?

3. Which towns felt like the needed improved stock?

4. Do you feel that iron/mythril ore should be able to be purchased from shops? How do you think this would impact weapon crafting for you? Would it make it too easy, just right or, if you felt it was difficult beforehand, do you think it still would be?

5. I've considered adding new pieces of armor. Since I'm trying to keep the armor piecess in a neatly categorized order in the items menu, this would require that I go through the database and maps to update a lot of monster drops/chest rewards/shop lists if I were to add new items since many would be displaced in the database's armor list. It's something I'd have no objections with since I'd only have to sacrifice probably one day of actual game work to do this (mapping and such) and I do have ideas for additional pieces of armor (mostly uniques and such). How does this idea sound to those who are unsatisfied with the game's armor shops?

6. Any other comments regarding what shops offer and how you feel they could be improved. Anything you'd like to see?

Will there be better items from relic shop later in the game as they all look the same? Also is it better to save Rosetta stones for the end of the game? because the rewards all look the same and I have them all because I found the last level of the demo had high drop rates and I found a lot of them there.

Exciting, but ultimately pointless.

Yes, there will be many more relics. A whole slew of new ones are introduced either around the end of the demo or in Cornelia, I forget which.

When you say you found "a lot" of Rosetta Stones, just how many do you mean? They should be extremely rare and hard to obtain from random encounters. What last area are you talking about? The Great Lindblum Reef?

The Great Lindblum Reef? Yes that level I have at lest 6. I think got three from the demo from bosses and I have spent 2 for the egg thing. I would have had at lest 8 that's 5 from random battles but I did grind or power level quite a bit so that might have some thing to do with it.

Ah, I suppose it does make sense since your total time is more than twice that of any other reported play times! You'll never need Rosetta Stones for ultimate weapons or anything of that nature, but you will be able to turn them in for some pretty handy things later on.
