Notes Edit

  • If you plan on making traps then you should always buy all of the Metal Shards a Merchant has to sell. There are no merchants that sell unlimited Metal Shards so the only shards you will find are the finite amount merchants have to sell, random items in chests and bodies, and from stealing.
  • Purchasing Metal Shards from the Armor Merchant does not have lasting value as all non-DLC equipment is lost after A Noble Expedition is concluded during the Dwarf Noble Origin.
