Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale

Sea Carpet, Omega Ferromin and the Emperor's Crown
I have been playing this game for a very long time (current save passed 500 hours today) and I have never once seen Euria try to sell the Sea Carpet. Do I have to do something special to make her sell it to me? I am half-worried that patch 1.108 inadvertently removed it from her selection of wares at this point. (I only know it exists because it's listed on the Recettear wiki)

I also have similar worries about the Emperor's Crown, which I have yet to see despite close to 200 runs through the Crystal Nightmare boss rush. (It's the only drop aside from the last Omega Ferromin I have yet to get)

Lastly, is there some sort of special condition for Omega Ferromin to drop? I've found two bottles, one in Crystal Nightmare 1-10 and one in Crystal Nightmare 21-30, but since then I haven't seen a single one despite intense farming for almost a full week.

(I should note that I bought the game from a different source than Steam, thus why it can't be found in my library here.)

It's all down to luck, basically. I've had Euria sell me the Sea Carpet a few times, even without me trying to raise my reputation with her. As for the other things, it's just the First Law of Pokemon applied to this game. Whenever you go looking for a specific, rare Pokemon (or in this case, a specific, rare item) you will find everything exept what you're looking for, including multiple items that are even rarer than what you want.

Thank you for the reply. Glad to hear that the Sea Carpet is still possible to obtain. Guess I'll just sacrifice a goat to the RNG and hope for the best.

I'm still waiting for the Sea Carpet too. Yet to see a single Omega Ferromin.

I did, however, get two Emperor's Crowns on a run the other night.

Did you find the Emperor's Crowns in the boss rush or on one of the regular floors?

Omega Ferromin is a serious pain to farm. Literally the only purpose of rank 4-5 items is to farm more rank 4-5 items, so x3 Omega Ferromin for Invincible Armor is a bit bonkers. Doesn't help that both Louie and Arma, the only characters who can wear Invincible Armor, are both heavily outclassed for farming purposes by Griff and Charme. (Arma might have Rocket Boots, but give Charme some good defensive equipment and like 30 mont blancs and she can spam Flame Charge from start to finish of a thorough 10 floor run without running out of inventory space)

With a bit of effort, I finally managed to get the last items I needed. http://puu.sh/8xa11

Thanks again for clearing up my doubts regarding the last couple of items.

Wow, could you actually describe what your effort was? Did you just save/load multiple times, or it didn't help? Did you keep leveling her up by buying at near pin prices? I understand it's been two years already, but still. Nobody else on the internet says what they did to get the carpet, or whether they got it at all.

I decorated the store with gaudy and bright decorations (I don't remember the exact values Euria liked though; you should probably check the Wiki for that) so Euria would come by as often as possible, then I just repeatedly opened the store over and over again for hours until she finally sold me the carpet. It took me a very long time, to say the least. I'm not sure if anything else is required, as it was one of the last things I did in the game, and I had pretty much everything maxed out by then.

OK, thanks for the answer :). Just to make it clear - you just played the game as it went, not reloaded the same save game over and over again until she offered the carpet, right?

No problem! I just played the game as it went, but I think it would probably work out just fine if you savescummed to get it too. I did that with some of the things I farmed for in dungeons to save time. It's all RNG, so I don't *think* there should be a problem
