Power-ups are special modifiers sold at shops, that the player can purchase to help them defeat monsters and other players. Power-ups provide a host of varying abilities that can massively increase a player's defensive or offensive power. Others can simply provide the player with an extra layer of options/utilities that can assist them over the course of the game.
Subsequently, the player will want to keep an eye out for useful power-ups when visiting any shop, selecting ones that either synergize with their character or are effective at dealing with the current task at hand. An element of strategy is also possible, as the player can choose quests that require them to head to a shop they desire.
Basics[edit | edit source]
As mentioned in quest locations, shops are unique locations that the player can choose to stop at, anytime they land or pass them. When the player chooses to stop at a shop, they may use their stars to purchase one copy of any of the items listed in the shop's inventory, if they can afford it. Most of these items are consumables that can bestow the player's character with permanent or temporary stock effects, however, cards can also be purchased from certain shops. All consumable items are used instantly upon being purchased and cannot be stored.
Each store carries its own selection of items that will restock once all items are either purchased or the locations are resets. Thus, if a player clears a shop inventory and another player visits it on the same chapter, the shop will still be sold out. Items are also shown to everyone upon purchase, however, cards are hidden to everyone except the buyer.
Which items are carried are based upon the type of store the player visits, and each type of store has its own inventory (2 bakeries will have different inventories). In general, the shops can be thought of as providing 3 types of items: cards, stat boosters, and health items.
|Armory||Battle cards, hyper cards, and unique equipment.|
|Bakery||Various sweets that boost stats.|
|Tavern||Various drinks that can heal HP/overheal and hireable mercenaries.|

Mercenaries[edit | edit source]A special type of unit called a mercenary can be purchased from the Tavern. Doing so will spawn a that will walk around on the board, taking its turn after Player 4. The mercenary will be colored to match the hud color of the player who spawned it. Mercenaries will only trigger , , and panels, and it will attack any other unit it passes on the board (other than the player who spawned it). They will remain on the board until they are KO'd. KO'ing a mercenary that has defeated a player will give the player the mercenary's stars. Mercenaries have different stats and passives from the Pirate Crew Members that spawn on from
|If a unit is KO'd by the Mercenary, 50% of the stars lost go to the player, and the rest to the Mercenary.|

Price Adjustments[edit | edit source]
Shop prices are affected by the player's character stats. Based on the default stat spread of +0 ATK, +0 DEF, +0 EVD, and 5 HP, characters will gain an adjustment to their Shop prices based on how positive or negative each of their stats is. ATK gives a 25% modifier, while DEF, EVD and HP give a 10% modifier. Consequently, the stronger the character's stats, the more expensive power-ups will be and vice versa.
