As other people have played through the game, they gained hindsight about what would have helped them earlier, but by then it was too late. However, they have shared some of their insights here for your benefit! Also, if you have a helpful thought of your own please share it with all of the rising merchants who will follow in your footsteps.
Resources are the basic ingredients for all of the items in Swords & Potions 2, and are combined using recipes. The initial recipes available only use Tier I resources like wood and stone, but they quickly require higher level resources, other items, and even rare resources that must be used wisely.
Everyone starts off with 4 Tier 1 resource locations unlocked (Iron Mine 1, Sawmill 1, Garden 1, & Tannery 1), but you must build resource bins in your shop before these resources become accessible to your workers. As you grow your town, more resources will appear and new resource bins will become available in the Shop Builder to access them. Note that if you collect any common resources (such as steel rods or oil) before you have bins built for them, they will be accessible to your workers from the nearest item chest.
Common resources regenerate over real-time up to your maximum storage capacity. If at any time a resource's inventory count is equal to or greater than the current maximum storage capacity, this regeneration stops. Higher tier resource locations are unlocked by improving your city, and upgrading these locations will increase the rate at which the resources regenerate.
|Tier I Resources||Tier II Resources||Tier III Resources||Tier IV Resources|
Rare resources are not available from any resource map locations and do not regenerate over time. They are only available as reward for certain achievements, as loot from the dungeons, from the daily roulette, or by buying them with tokens.
|Acid||Faery's Tear||Volcanic Rock||Abyss Shell||Phoenix Feather|
|Eternal Ice||Demon Horn||Moon Stone||Roaring Powder||Golden Silk|
|Shadow Essence||Dragon Scale||Rising Sun||Divine Leaf|

Customers are very important in Swords & Potions 2 because they drive your business forward each day. The number of customers you receive increases with your fame, and they each have an affinity level which determines who is most likely to show up. You are able to interact with customers in three different ways: sell to them, buy from them, or send them on quests. There are different classes, such as soldier or bard, which give a general indication of what a given customer will want from you, but each one is slightly different.
Can only be completed once, but usually give high XP and good rewards. Requires a specific setup of adventurers and items to start.
Equipment required for an event quest is lost. Consider it payment for the items/resources you get.
Repeatable quests to level adventurers and obtain Gold/Items/Rare Resources. Requires one adventurer and up to three items, all of which you can choose freely.
If an adventurer level is above the level range of a dungeon, he will gain no XP.
Item break chance
|Item level in relation to adventurer level||Break chance|
|below or equal||10%|
|+3 or higher||90%|
Send adventurers to upgrade some city buildings.
After completing the gold requirement you are usually tasked to send 50 to 200+ adventures in order to upgrade the location. This is done for all recruitment advances.
Here you can upgrade/move existing and build new furniture to improve your shop and cater to the needs of your workers and customers.
It can only be accessed via the City Screen.
The tools are pretty self-explanatory:
- Upgrade: Upgrade existing furniture. The higher the level, the higher the cost and the longer the time to complete the upgrade.
- Move: Tired of your workers spending half their time running around in the shop? Maybe it's time for a more efficient shop layout.
You can temporarily park furniture on the sidewalk. Saving is disabled until everything is back in the shop.
- Rotate: Choose between two or four directions (depending on item) for maximum space utilization.
You can press "Space" instead of clicking the button, even for new improvements.
- Delete: Get rid of unneeded stuff. No refunds though. And once confirmed, that item is lost forever!
- Expand: Need more room? Get more room! Each purchase will add one row to your shop.
|1 / 2||1,000||2|
|3 / 4||2,500||5|
|5 / 6||10,000||10|
|7 / 8||25,000||20|
|9 / 10||100,000||35|
|11 / 12||500,000||50|
|13 / 14||1,000,000||75|
|15 / 16||5,000,000||100|
|17 / 18||10,000,000||200|
Fame is a measurement of how well you are doing and increases with every item crafted or sold. Certain shop improvements can increase your XP gain.
You can also use Golden Medallions to boost XP gained from selling for 24h (click the banner showing your current level).
New workers, dungeons, quests, and furniture are unlocked at certain fame levels.
Increasing this will increase the number of daily customers, thus increasing your income. Certain customers unlocked by city buildings also require a certain shop appeal to appear in your shop.
|Customers||Appeal for next level|

Your city is where you get to build a community as well as develop the infrastructure to develop your business further. On the one hand, you have the central square, where up to 12 players may trade items, visit each other's shops, and talk privately in the city chat area. On the other, all of the players may contribute communally to improving the resources of the area and the city buildings, which improve the level of your potential clientele.
Achievements are earned by reaching various milestones in the game. They give you gold, crafting recipes, rare crafting resources or special items.
