Be the Merchant of your very own empire! Quest, Craft, Profit, Upgrade!

As the Merchant, you are the commander of your own domain!

Blending together traditional RPG systems, tycoon mechanics, and a fantasy overworld, Merchant aims to reimagine the traditional mobile RPG. In Merchant, players take the role of a shopkeeper who must manage a team of Heroes and Crafters. Heroes are sent out on quests in order to fight enemies and gather materials. Crafters then use those materials to create weapons and armor. As the shopkeeper, players must balance their micro-economies between selling items for gold and crafting items to better ensure success for the Heroes.

Great game with no ads

I’ve been playing this game non stop for the past two weeks. I don’t normally do that with iOS games but this is stupid fun. Instead of playing overwatch like normal I put on Netflix in the background to play this.

It’s a basic management game set up with an rpg skin but has a pretty deep/well done leveling and gear system. I’m really impressed with it. The main quality is that the quest/mission/crafting timed things are super quick. So it’s not like typical “wait 2 hours or but these things to boost the production.” It starts off as seconds, and the minutes. But there are things to do in between so you’re never really just waiting until you get to the end game.

I still can’t believe how hooked I am on this game.

Literally can’t stop playing. The art style has an aesthetic look, and I love the gameplay. It’s not even that in depth but man it’s good. My favourite part is the time/wait for things is usually only a couple minutes, and generally doesn’t take long. Unlike other games; which have such long waits and I have no patience for that. I r8 88/8 m8, everyone’s gotta play this. 🧐😤😩

I'm enjoying it, but please please

... revamp the sound system so it doesn't kill my music every time i open the app. Also, some kind of guidance on the equipment, bosses, rare bosses, and skills/rounds? would be nice. If i didn't look it up extensively, i would have been lost and long gone from the game.
I was also wondering about the drop rates from rare bosses. I can get two Terros fangs for every one Ceros horn that drops, and both are blue, and should technically have similar drop rates?
Enchanting seems a bit useless, it's expensive, and the success rates are too low.
Obviously the game grabbed me enough to merrit extensive research i put into it so i could get anywhere... that's why 4 stars.
