001. Introduction

Recettear is a fairly relaxing and easy to learn game. You run an item shop,
hunt for the stuff you sell, buy low and sell high, unlock new dungeons and
adventurers and all that stuff.

002. Characters

Recette:  Main character of the story. Left with a huge debt by her father
          without her even knowing it. Lives on top of a hill when Tear comes
          and tells her that she may lose her house if the debt isn't paid.

Tear:     Fairy working for Terme Finance to collect Recette's father's loan.
          She will be yout tutor throughout the game. Always shows her strong
          side and acts as a sister to Recette.

Alouette: Daughter of the owner of Big Bash, a big Walmart like chain, and
          claims Recette as her rival. She is assisted by her own fairy, Prime.

Prime:    Alouette's assistant fairy who keeps Alouette in check.

Merchant's guild master: He will be responsible for selling weapons and armors
                         to you. Fusion and expansion are also availed through
Euria:    She who we call the 'combo breaker'. Will occasionally come and sell
          overpriced items just to break your justcombos.

003. Adventurers

Adventurers can be unlocked sometime in the game. Their initial equipments will
be weak and unreliable and the only way to replace them is by selling them the
equipment. Another way is to "lend" them their equipment but this will take
space in your inventory so this is not quite recommended.

At the end of the game, you may acquire an adventurer's "True Card" as a sign
of friendship. The effect of True Cards is that you can use the said adventurer
early on on the next loop of the game. I recommend getting other True Cards
besides Louie since he'll be given at the very start of the game. True Card
selection is based on the number of adventures you had with an adventurer.
The more adventures, the higher chance of getting their True Cards. On an
event that 2 adventurers get the same number of adventures, priority will take

Louie, Charme, Caillou, Tielle, Nagi/Elan/Griff is the priority order.


Louie: Brave but poor adventurer. Uses swords. Throughout the story, you will
       know exactly just how poor he is. -_-;

How to unlock: He's given to you as your first adventurer.

Skills: Spin Slash   - Louie will spin causing damage to enemy units round him.
        Vacuum Blade - Ranged attack. 1 direction only.


Charme: Theif. She's fast and deadly. She can run by double tapping a direction
        and can even run on curves.

How to unlock: Finish Jade Way and after 2 cutscenes on your store (while open),
               she'll give you her guild card.

Skills: Mirror Image - Creates images that cannot be damaged but can damage
        Flame Charge - Charges the enemy with flames. Useful when escaping.
        Shadow Weave - Places a web on the ground rendering enemies trapped for
                       the kill.


Caillou: Mage with an attitude problem. He's quite fun to use especially when
         leveled up.

How to unlock: After getting the merchant skill of advance ordering, he'll
               visit your store and order a slime liver (Slime King), charred
               lizard (Gnolls) and bat wings (Eyeballs). After fulfilling the
               orders, sell some items to him and he'll give you his card
               to unlock him.

Skills: Pyrobomb     - Burst of fire in Caillou's surroundings.
        Ice Mine     - Fires a block of ice that explodes in a short distance.
        Sparkburst   - What I call 'Machinegun'. Fires a volley of arcane
                       missles in front of Caillou
        Gemini Force - Summons spheres that act as shields but can also be
        Warp         - Teleports Caillou in random places within the floor.

Note: Caillou's attacks absorb SP from opponents, so whe you run out, whack the
      heck out of them. Caillou's attack can also be ranged. Hold your attack
      button then you'll see that he'll somewhat charge and release an orange


Tielle: Elven archer who likes sweets. She's pretty fun to use when there are
        crowds of monsters in the floor.

How to unlock: Do her event in the town square where she begs her sister to
               walk slower. Then defeat her at Amber Garden (she's the final
               boss there).

Skills: Flame Arrow    - Fires a flaming arrow in front of Tielle.
        Seeker Arrow   - Homing arrows.
        Starshot Arrow - Tielle fires arrows into the sky and rains down like
                         satellite lasers.
        Cuterage!      - Gives Tielle rage to charge her arrows faster.

Note: Tielle's arrows can be charged. There are 5 levels of varying strenght
      and a 6th level when in Cuterage! mode.


Nagi: Eastern lancer with a very very narrow range. She can only attack enemies
      directly in front of her.

How to unlock: Meet her 4 times in random dungeons then when she finally finds
               her way back, sell her items and she'll give you her card

Skills: Flame Charge    - Nagi bathes her lance in flame and charges forth!
        Hundred Thrusts - Nagi thrusts with her spear faster than the eye can
                          see! Ideal for boss battles.
        Spin Slash      - Same as Louie's. Spinning attack.
        Vacuum Spear    - Same as Louie's. Range attack, 1 direction


Elan: Monk in training. Apparently has a long tab at the pub.. Drunk monk. xD

How to unlock: You have to have Charme then do the night event on which the
               pub owner's going to have a verbal fight with Elan. Go to the
               Merchant's Guild the next day and do the event wherein the
               GM will ask you to deliver a box to the orphanage. You'll meet
               Elan. Afterwards, sell items to him to get his card.

Skills: Flame Charge - Something like what those gnolls do. Punch with fire.
                       Not good damage and slow initiation which is only good
                       for escaping.
        Fist Flurry  - One of the best skills of Elan (for me). He will do some
                       wicked fist combo and finishes it with a rocky
                       explosion. Hits more than one target as long as it's in
                       front of Elan.
        Berserk      - He'll have improved damage but won't be able to use items
                       or skills.

Note: Elan's SP isn't that great and all so try not to consume it all at once.


Griff: Demon who trash talks Tear and Recette when they first met.

How to unlock: Defeat him at Obsidian Tower, he'll visit your store and give you
               his card.

Skills: Dark Claw       - Griff will attack in a straight line (One like in boss
                          battle) in an attempt to slice enemies in half.
Demon Soul      - Same as Elan's Berserk. You won't get knocked back
                          hit and have a stronger damage.
        Vampiric Vortex - Griff fires off a black vortex that sucks enemies and
                          damages them while healing you.

Note #1: Griff is a total badass. His range is massive and he has this dash that
         makes him invisible (pass through enemies).
Note #2: You DO NOT have to be on endless mode to unlock Griff. I got him on my
         5th loop (I'm on the 6th.)


Arma: Mech chick that you get as a final prize for finishing Recettear!

How to unlock: Get all characters then finish Lapis Ruins which is a no joke
               100 floors with an imbalanced final boss.

Skills: Vector Cannon - Fires a huge cannon which takes a while to charge.
                        Drains ALL sp upon use. 1 direction with a huge damage.
                        Will not work if sp is not full (w/c won't happen lol,
                        you only got one skill >_>)

Note #1: Her arms consume ammo and gets depleted. This is really annoying as her
         arms need to charge and charging needs time.
Note #2: I have not tried a non-endless Arma so the only way I know is to play
         endless mode. :p

004. Recetter Shop

This is where all the magic happens. You buy and sell items here which is the
purpose of the game.

Lemme get you the basics of the store.

Store atmosphere - There are 4 types of store atmospheres, light, dark, plain
                   and gaudy. This affects adventurers visiting your store.

**Pre-ordered items will be collected by customers ASAP that day. So when you
open at evening, expect all those customers to claim them at evening. When you
open in the morning, expect all those customers to claim them during morning.

Max you can raise is 130% when prices are normal and up to 300%++ when prices
are red (high)

Here are the highest max % I got so far (still trying stuff. :D)
low price    - 70%  (BLUE)
normal price - 130% (WHITE)
high price   - 310% (RED)

Also, when you are able to sell items on the first try (customers don't haggle),
there will be bonuses to exp. Here's a short list of them:

JustCombo - increases as you sell items on the first price you set continuously.
            gets cut if the customer haggles.
NearPin   - your price is near of what the customer thought it would cost
JustPin   - your price is exactly what the customer thought it would cost

There are certain (or often as the game progresses) times that customers will
try just to lower the prices. If the price you gave is 127% below, try to give
the same price again, some will buy the item with no further arguments.

When selling to adventurers, don't raise the price too much especially when
they are trying to buy an equipment that they can wear. You'll know this
because there will be a small box on the upper right corner signifying the
change in their stats. Sell low or even go below 100% so that your adventurer
will be more fit for battle.

Selling too much of 1 kind of item will result to its price CRASHING! Price
crash will result to that item to have a blue (low) price. Remove these items
and replace them with other items. Wait for a few days for the price to recover.

Here are the max lowest % I got so far. (feel free to experiment with these.)

low - (still looking :D)
normal - 40%
high - 90%

Buying also affects JustCombo so if you buy at the first set price, your combo
won't brake. :)

Remember: Capitalism, Ho!

Character Specific %
Finalage mailed me some info for this section as I don't think I have the
patience to watch them all 1 by 1. xD

"The Old Guy"                 - only buys at 116% at first, or lower. When he
                                knows you better, it's 118%

"The Guild Master/That Guy"   - Both of them, that guy who dresses similarly
                                to the old guy and the guild master, buy at
                                around 125~126% to start with, though 125 is
                                safest until you get to know them.
                                After that, I'm none too sure.

"The Woman and "Her Daughter" - I call the girl her daughter for sanities sake.
They both buy around 112% to begin with,
                                while the woman can be pushed later on to 116
                                percent, the girl is stubborn at 114%.
                                Ehh. What can you do?

                              - As for me, the woman can go past 112% to 127% or
                                more. I'll go try to go higher ;) -advent

Louie                         - About 118% Is always safe, save for when you
first meet him, 116% is better then. Liken him
                                the old guy.

Charme                        - Selling items to her at around 105% to 110%
a near pin occasionally, maybe her just is
                                around this level?

Calliou                       - Can never get his name right...12_% is always
                                it seems.

Alouette                      - Feh, 130%? It's safer to say over 135%, she
                                buys without complaint on 138% for me.

Preferences/Item Class
This part shows what customers want/need when they say paricular clues.

playing Recettear shop mode. xD

      Even my level 60 characters die here. Lots of failures on this one.


Dungeons are enjoyable at start but as the levels go higher, you might start to
get bored. Stuff in ingredients if you're aiming for fusion but if not, go for
healing items. This gets tricky as you start with only 20 slots. Pick those
ingredients with (+) and discard those that don't have (+). Recovery items with
(+) heals more than plain ones.

Also, when out of healing items, try to level up! But be careful as trying too
hard to level up while low on HP/SP might result to death.

It might also be another good point to clear the floor before going to the next
one as it not only gives you loots, but also precious experience points for
easier boss battles.


Also, dungeons have 2 kinds of traps - Treasure and field traps
Treasure Traps are traps activated upon opening a chest whereas field traps
are traps that get activated just by walking around killing monsters.

Trap types:
Bomb          - sets a 5 sec bomb
Warp          - warps you on random location in the floor
Slime         - summons 4 blue Slimes
Winter        - makes the floor slippery (countered by equipping Eskimo Boots)
Paralyze      - completely halts monsters and slows you down
Flying Fish   - 3 fishes whirl through the map.
Falling Rocks - Rocks fall to damage you and monsters

Random bonuses for floors. (Not all floors have bonuses. =])

Floor bonus types (random):
All attack strenght doubled
Adventurer attack strenght doubled
Monster attack strenght doubled

All defensive power doubled
Adventurer defensive power doubled
Monster defensive power doubled

All movement speed doubled

Item fusion one of the most gruelling parts of Recettear. You have to collect
ingredients, fuse them, go back to dungeons and collect again, then fuse and
the cycle goes on.

Here's the merchant level requirement for fusion:
Level 05 - Fuse rank 1 items
Level 13 - Fuse rank 2 items
Level 19 - Fuse rank 3 items
Level 25 - Fuse rank 4 items
Level 30 - Fuse rank 5 items

There are 3 colors that will appear on your creation list:
Green - You are good to go because you have the complete ingredients
White - You have unlocked all the ingredients but do not have enough
Grey  - You have one or more unknown ingredient for that item

You might also see something like:

Note: If the ingredient (may it be weapon or ingredient) needed is neither
in stores or not listed, then it can only be acquired via random treasure
chests on dungeons, fused OR you can buy at 500% from Euria *grin*

Note: All enemies have a random chance of dropping food.

008. Additional Notes

[x] Try to relax when adventuring in dungeons, you don't know what
new enemies will appear and what their attributes are. Don't go
rushing towards enemy, study them for attack patterns. :)

[x] When opening a treasure chest, check out Tear first, when she
gives an (!), DO NOT open the chest, it'll be a trap.

[x] When Alouette buys from your store, do 130%+ ALWAYS! :)

[x] Manage your time. Plan your day ahead, i.e.

Morning+Noon = dungeon
Afternoon    = go around town/sell
Night        = sell/go around town

See to it that you do events as some of them may unlock new characters.

[x] How did I finish Lapis Ruins? I took advice number 1. Relax. Don't
rush. And bring regeneration items just in case.
