Shop Titans Advanced Characters Guide: –
⇒How do you get characters? What are different types of characters in Shop Titans game?
There are three types of characters in this game; heroes, champions, and the 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.
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 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: –
- Attack – The stars number displays how good is the hero in combat(In an offensive manner)
- HP – The health or hit points
- DEF – The higher the defense, the less will be the damage taken
- Eva/Evasion – Dodging performance
- Skills – All the characters/heroes have unique abilities. The skill rating displays how good is the character in skills performance/casting
- 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).
You need champion coins to hire a champion. Every 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.
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.
Workers In Shop Titans: Design & Trade
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.

How To Level Up Champions, Workers, And Heroes In Shop Titans Game
There is a different way of leveling up for each type of character. Let’s learn about all: –
Heroes and Champions – Send these characters on the quests and they will gain experience points. Once gained enough, their level will increase. 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; 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.
Level up these characters to increase crafting speed, stats, efficiency.
Shop Titans – Resources Guide
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; 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.

How To Unlock High Tier Blueprints In Shop Titans: Design & Trade Game?
To 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.
You can check the tier level at the top-left corner of the item. Once done, tap it and use research scroll to unlock that item.
Level Up Blueprints/Items To Get Better Quality
In Shop Titans game, you need 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 portrait, you can check how many times you need to craft that item to reach 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.
Gear Quality – Shop Titans
Sometimes, customers demand superior or higher quality weapon(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.
The quality increases as you level up. Tap the (i) icon at the bottom of gear icon -> 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 growth also. 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.
Open The Chests, Get Ascension Shards, Ascend The Items
From the quests, you may get the chests. If you get, you will see it in the loot section(city -> loot). Open the chest and you may get research scrolls, ascend shards, and other items. Ascend shards are used in ascending the items. Go to the crafting menu -> tap the (i) icon at the bottom of an item -> ascend -> 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.
