New to the Shop Titans game? Master all of its mechanics in this Shop Titans guide available with tips, cheats & strategies for beginners

In today’s post, we will learn everything in deep; workers, champions, heroes, weapons, level, how to discover blueprints, resources, and some intermediate tips as well. So let’s get started – Shop Titans guide and Shop Titans tips & tricks.

Shop Titans Guide, Tips, Cheats & Strategies⇓

In the Shop Titans game, your goal is to make money by selling the gears to the customers who visit your shop now and then. Also, expand the shop so that you can place more furniture items in the shop. To expand the shop, upgrade, or install furniture items, you will need loads of gold coins, which you earn from the customers. Let’s learn everything in detail and explore all the Shop Titans tips, cheats & tricks: –

Get Familiar With The Characters⇓

There are three types of characters in this game; heroes, champions, and workers. You can use the heroes and champions in the quests(read our old guide on this game for the quest details). Unlike heroes, champions are more advanced characters; because of their powerful skills and stats.

How To Get Characters In Shop Titans


The workers in the game help you in crafting weapons, armors, and accessories. Now, let’s learn how to get these characters.

Heroes – You can spend the gold as well as gems to recruit the heroes. First, tap the characters button(Chars.) at the bottom of your screen and then choose to add a new hero slot. On the next screen, you will see the heroes that you can recruit -> fighters, rogue, mage, etc. All these heroes have different stats as well as skills. Since you can choose only one out of all the available choices, it would be hard to pick the best one. In this case, we would recommend comparing their stats: –

  1. Attack – The stars number displays how good is the hero in combat(In an offensive manner)
  2. HP – The health or hit points
  3. DEF – The higher the defense, the less will be the damage taken
  4. Eva/Evasion – Dodging performance
  5. Skills – All the characters/heroes have unique abilities. The skill rating displays how good is the character in skills performance/casting
  6. Also, read their skills

Once recruited, you will see that character in the heroes section under the character menu. Tap it and equip the gears. You can learn about the heroes in our guide(link is given above in the first paragraph).

Learn About The Champions⇓

You can send the champions on the quests. And you need champion coins to hire a champion. Now and then, special characters visit your shop – you must serve them nicely to get their champion shards/points. For example; To unlock Lilu, you need 25 Lilu points. These champions visit the shop randomly; so make sure to pay attention to every customer and try to fulfill their needs at any cost.

Shop Titans Champion Coins

Once you have enough, you will unlock that champion character and use them in the quests. Additionally, you need more of their points to rank up. For example; To rank up Argon(champion name), you need 5 Argon champion points. Keep serving all the customers and you will eventually get this opportunity. You can also obtain champion coins from the chests.

Learn About The Workers In Shop Titans⇓

Workers help you craft the items. Head to the character menu and tap on the worker avatar to check his ability to craft specific items. For example – Wallace(Blacksmith) crafts gears in the shop. You can hire workers from the city. Tap the city button at the bottom -> you will see some people willing to get a job at you. Tap the hire option -> spend the gold or diamonds to hire. If you don’t have enough, sell and earn until you save that much amount.

Now, this part is all about how to get the characters. Next, we will learn how to increase the level of these characters and get more benefits.

Level Up The Characters⇓

Heroes and Champions – Send these characters on the quests and they will gain experience points. Their level will increase once they hit the XP cap on the current level. To track the level progress, head to the characters menu -> tap the character -> under its name -> check level bar.

Workers – Workers earn experience points when you craft the items. To grant EXP to a particular character, you need to craft the item in which they are professional. For example; Wallace is a blacksmith and earns EXP when you craft the weapons. Allan is a carpenter who earns EXP when you craft the wooden items. For example; a wooden shield. Maribel earns EXP when you craft herbs. To grant EXP to Julia, you will need to craft armors.

Whenever you craft, the workers will gain experience and that message appears at the top-right corner of the screen(After you claim the item). In this way, you can check which character is getting EXP.

Shop Titans Level Up Workshops

Level up these characters to increase crafting speed, stats, efficiency.

Obtain The Resources To Craft Items⇓

Resources or materials are required to craft the items. For example; herbs. You produce these resources in the city. So invest some time in reading all the details of all the buildings in the city. For example; the Garden in the city is the production source of herbs. When you tap the craft button, at the top of that screen, you can see the resources that you own.

Quests – From the explorations quests, you can obtain the precious materials, required for crafting some items. So make sure to send the heroes as well as champions to those areas for the hunt of these materials.

Sending heroes on the exploration quests also grant Exploration EXP. As you gain more, the exploration level will increase and you will be able to access new locations where you can find more special items. For example; You can gather glow shroom once you reach Howlong Woods level 5.

Here’s the list of materials and source: –

  • Elven Wood – HW(Howling Woods)

Unlock High Tier Blueprints In Shop Titans⇓

Shop Titans Get BlueprintsTo unlock high-tier items, you need to complete specific requirements. For example; To unlock Balisong, you need to craft Stealth Knife 40 times. And, once you complete this requirement, research gets complete and you get a high-tier item formula.

To check these requirements for high-tier blueprints or new items discovery; tap the craft button -> go-to weapons/armor/accessory -> choose the weapon/armor/accessory type -> In the first slot, you can see the requirements to unlock that blueprint.

Shop Titans New Blueprints

You can check the tier level at the top-left corner of the item. Once done, tap it and use a research scroll to unlock that item.

Level Up Blueprints/Items To Get Better Quality⇓

In the Shop Titans game, you need a research scroll to unlock a new item(once you complete the requirements). You can obtain it by raising the level of one of your items. Now, how to level up an item? It’s pretty easy to figure out; go to crafting menu again -> at the bottom of the item icon, you can check the number of times you need to craft that item to reach the next level. For example; If it’s 5/8. Then it means, you need to craft it 3 more times to reach the next level.

Learn How To Get High-Quality Gears⇓

Sometimes, customers demand superior or higher quality weapons (green flame). Whenever you craft a superior or high-quality gear, the game displays it in the big banner(you have discovered a masterpiece). Now, how to craft superior quality or higher quality gear? It’s pretty easy; first, It’s random if the level of that item is low. If you increase the level of that item(by crafting it over and over again), chances of getting better quality gear will increase.

Shop Titans Gear Quality

The quality increases as you level up. Tap the (i) icon at the bottom of gear icon -> tap the scroll icon in the top-right -> milestones -> here you can check the milestone upgrades. As you level up, the value of that item will increase. And, at some point, you get a quality upgrade reward.

Build Furniture & Upgrade Storage⇓

You should focus on the shop expansion. First, we would recommend you to increase the inventory slots for the resources items so that you can keep a large stock. Tap the edit button at the bottom-right corner -> tap furniture button -> In the second tab, you can find all the RSS storage items -> build them and keep a large stock. Go to the third tab -> build a chest. Also, don’t forget to build racks, shelves to hang the items there – visitors may find it useful. You can upgrade them to display more items in the shop.

Also, expand the shop – tap the design button in the bottom-right -> expand -> tap the + button -> use the gold coins or gems. You can obtain gems by completing the achievements, reaching certain milestones(ascend the blueprints/items), leveling up.

Learn How To Level Up In Shop Titans⇓

By selling the items to the customers, you gain XP. In the top-left corner, tap the level bar to open the player profile – there you can check net worth, prestige points, mastered blueprints, and the XP required to reach the next level.

Ascend The Items Using Ascension Shards⇓

From the quests, you may get the chests. If you have a chest, you can see it in the loot section(city -> chest). Open the chest and you may get research scrolls, ascension shards, and other items. Ascension shards are used in ascending the items. Go to the crafting menu -> tap the (i) icon at the bottom of an item -> tap the scroll icon in the top-right -> ascension -> here you can ascend the items. Or long-press on the blueprint to open information page -> ascension. You can also get ascension shards from the fortune zone and the shop. When you ascend an item, a special buff gets unlocked.

Get The Piggy Bank⇓

Every day the game gives you a piggy bank – it pops out at the top-center of the game after playing the game for a while. Smash it to get items, ascension shards, etc.

Check Out The Market⇓

Go to the market and there you can buy and sell items, components, and treasure chests in exchange for gold coins or gems.

  1. I have clicked on some elemental buttons to craft them. They are done and say “ready” but when I click on them nothing happens. Now I can’t craft any more. I’m fairly new. Please someone help me use or get rid of the elements I’ve crafted.

  2. Having problems when I go to purchase character coins from the fortune zone the game kicks me off and resets it self. Anyone else had these problems?

  3. How do you get the characters max armor/gear level to increase? I have level 5 toons that can only equip level 2 items max. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you

  4. For heroes when you click on their skills at the bottom of the box it shows all of the element symbols with a dash next to each and a total. Can you add elements to the heroes? How does this work? What’s it for?

  5. Well when I click on the quest for argon it acts like I clicked it but nothing loads I’ve tried restarting the game uninstall everything any ideas?

  6. Darius that happened to me. I think it was on the bottom of my inventory. Have a look there. If not there its somewhere else. I know you won’t lose it

    • The best way I have found to get keys is fighting the dungeon bosses. You’ll see that they tell you what your chances are of getting a key. 25% for easy 35% for medium and 50% for hard. I hope that helps.

  7. I wish the devs would update the game do you could see your personal xp. We have no idea on the best way to level up. Do you get better xp selling, crafting, leveling up items or sending out parties?

  8. Haii. I’m a new player. So. After I craft some elemental stone? Forgot what it called. The one from magic tower. For enchant heroes gear. So it pop up a new recipe right. But I click on continue not on recipe so it would consume blueprint and learn it. Now how do I get that recipe again? Or can’t I? Thanks. Happy crafting selling.

  9. One things the guides don’t cover and I have been looking everywhere.. What is the best way to obtain keys. I have a ton of chests that are locked and cannot open them
