There are currently 2 Different Hubs in the game, the Private Tavern and the Heroes Market Place also known as the Town. This is where you'll spend any time not in battle to sell, buy, manage, tinker and test any gear you've found in combat. The Tavern and Town also posses multiple NPCs with various shops.
- 1 Vendors
- 2 The Emporium
- 3 Others
These NPCs will either sell you something, or provide a service.
The 11 items for sale are generated/refreshed once every hour. The item stats are based on your hero's equipped gear level. This mean if you are wearing all the best gear you can get from Chaos 1, the Blacksmith will generate random Armor and Weapons for sale with stats equivalent to items dropping in Chaos 2. The Blacksmith's gear caps out at Chaos 3 quality however.
The Relic Hunter
His Relics for sale are generated/refreshed once every hour. The generated item stats are based on your hero's equipped average relic level.
Gran Ma'ster's Skills Shop
Gran Ma'ster is a vendor in the tavern that sells Shards that are available to all Heroes for Gems.

Petrinarian and Stable Boy's Pets Shop

Professor Sebastian Proteus, also known as "The Tinkerer" is the genius who adapted gear to have M.O.D.S. on them. He's also the creator of Protobot and the Sky City Bank.
Professor Proteus allows you to transfer mods from one item (e.g relic, helmet) to another. This process costs Defender Medals or Gems as well as the respective upgrade material (e.g Plain Leather, Plain Iron Hammer). For a comprehensive list of materials, see Tinker Materials.
