There are multiple NPCs in Etheria, most you will find in the Tavern and Town, but you will come across some of them only in maps.
NPCs can provide services, have shops, or just present fun interactions, making puns or discussing work.


These NPCs will either sell you something, or provide a service.

The Blacksmith


The Blacksmith is a vendor in the tavern that sells Weapons and Armor for all Heroes for gold.

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.

He can be found left of the Training Dummies in Tavern, or behind the Emporium in the Town.

The Relic Hunter


The Relic Hunter is a vendor in the tavern that sells, you guessed it, Relics for gold. He sells Relics that are available to all Heroes.

His Relics for sale are generated/refreshed once every hour. The generated item stats are based on your hero's equipped average relic level.
This mean if you are wearing all the best gear you can get from Chaos 1, he will generate random Relics for sale with stats equivalent to items dropping in Chaos 2. The Relics generated cap out at Chaos 3 quality.

He can be found to the right of The Blacksmith in Tavern and Town. He has his own shop in Tavern, but hangs out in the Blacksmith's one in Town.

Gran Ma'ster's 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


Interacting with the Petrinarian will open the Petrinarian window, allowing you to view, equip, feed, power up, and evolve your Pets.
The Stable Boy will open the Hatchery window when interacted with, which can be used to hatch any Creature Eggs you may have.
Both windows can always be accessed, whomever of the two you may decide to interact with.

You can find this couple after beating the Liferoot Forest map. You can find them above the Training Dummies in Tavern or when going left in Town.

Professor Proteus


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.

Professor Proteus can be found left of the Blacksmith in Tavern, or when going right in Town.

Sky City Bank


The Sky City Bank is a place to store items you don't want in your inventory, it consist of multiple Vaults and a Material Vault. These have to be bought for Gems.
Protobot is the guardian of the Sky City Bank, both of which are inventions of Professor Proteus.
You can find the Sky City Bank next to the Training Dummies in Tavern or behind the Emporium, left of the Blacksmith in Town.

Knight Commander


The Knight Commander will inform you of newly unlocked Campaign maps and any Campaign-related quests you may have, although he does not do anything after you've beaten the Campaign.



The Tavernkeeper may be interacted with to report any bugs you find.

The Tavernkeep can be found behind the bar of the Tavern and Outside Tavern in Town.



When your inventory has completely filled up, the Scavenger will collect any further items dropped on a map. He also picks up items dropped from enemies killed by falling off the map.
These items will remain in the Scavenger's inventory for a limited amount of time until he gets rid of them.

You can find the Scavenger to your right when spawning in the Tavern, or right of the Dragon Statue in the middle of Town.

Shady Merchant


Talking to the Shady Merchant will bring up the Quest Menu (accessed also by pressing "J").
He can be found behind the Tavernkeep's Bar in both Town and Tavern.

Treasure Pirate


Here you can spend your Defender Medals on unique, valuable items. The Treasure Pirate sells pet affection boosters and special Creature Eggs like Betsy Dragon Eggs.

In the many maps you'll play in Etheria, you'll sometimes find the King and Prince of Dragonfall watching you.

The King


The King of Dragonfall is a serious and stoic man. Throughout the Campaign he will speak to you, tell you what your objective is and explain Etheria.

The Prince


The Prince of Dragonfall is a happy and cheerful child.

You will first see him cheering you on from the top of The Gates of Dragonfall, and later from the throne in the Throne Room.

The Queen


Not much is known about the Queen. The only evidence of her existence is from a banner in the Throne Room.

After the raids from Assault on Throne Room, the King's banner is torn apart, her's however is left untouched.


These characters used to own a shop, or are present in some maps.

The Enchantress


The Enchantress used to upgrade gear by fusing other gear and gold.
The Upgrading mechanics has since been changed so that fusion of gear is no longer required, and is done within the inventory.

You can find her in the tavern sitting at a table near the Pirate Cove, or in the open tavern in Town. Sadly she doesn't have interactions anymore.

Stubborn Old Man


The Stubborn Old Man is the owner of the Objective you need to protect in Dragonfall Bazaar. In the map he sits on his cart, which is the objective.

You can find him near the bar in both the Tavern and Town.
