On each visit, she will offer 16 items for purchase: 4x resources, 4x speedups, 4x boosts, and 4x other items. You can refresh her selection by pressing the "Refresh" button in the top-right corner of the window. You can purchase each item only once per visit per refresh. Refresh costs are as follows:
|2nd|| 100 |
|3rd|| 200 |
|4th|| 300 |
|5th|| 400 |
Food and Wood Items
The Mysterious Merchant also offers some shop items priced in food or wood instead of gems at a lesser discount of 10% to 40%, depending on the specific item. Food resources may be purchased only with wood, while wood resources may only be purchased with food. All other items randomly appear as costing either food or wood.
Buying resource items using resources is a common method to bank resources away as items for later use, where they cannot be plundered by other governors.
