The Shopkeeper is a Standard NPC.

Description Edit

This stout guy looks more appropriate for a trade district in some large city than for a dungeon. His prices explain why he prefers to do business here.

Info Edit

The Shopkeeper can be found in the Shop, on Depths 6, 11, 16, & 21 (the depth directly after each boss depth). The Shop will always be in a room adjacent to the staircase that brought you down to that depth. They will sell overpriced items; and will buy items from the Hero/ine, for a significantly lower gold return rate. The purchase price will be five times higher than the sell price of an item.

On Depth 6, he will buy your items for about 10% of their selling price. The price for each item rises by about 50% in each subsequent Shop. Unidentified items are less expensive than identified items, and less useful potions and scrolls (such as Scroll of Challenge) are less expensive than more useful ones (such as Scroll of Terror).

If any damage, or any (de)buff, is applied to the Shopkeeper, he and his goods will immediately disappear, leaving an empty room. It means that, in addition to damage (directly by the Hero/ine, an enemy, or indirectly from a Skeleton’s explosion), harmful potions, aggressive scrolls, and some wands (Amok) will make the Shopkeeper flee, so don't test out scrolls while in the line of sight of the Shopkeeper. If you use a Wand of Teleportation on the Shopkeeper, he will be teleported outside of his Shop, but you can still buy & sell items from him.



  • In versions before Update 1.6.2, if the enemy you’re fighting in the shop drops an item, it will automatically become part of the merchandise; and then the only way to get it is to buy it.
  • Items that are being sold in the Shop cannot be stolen with the Wand of Reach.


Update Change
1.6.2 Changed: Items dropped (by the Hero/ine) on top of the Shopkeeper's goods, can be picked up for free
1.6.2a Changed: The Shopkeeper's animation has changed
