Changelog:
8/6/2017 - Fixed a few small errors over the course of the past few months. Changed information pertaining to the Yakuza sauna. This may be the final update for this guide unless something big is found that needs editing, or if an update to the game demands me change something here.

3/10/2017 - Added small update to the "cat reward" spoiler.

3/3/2017 - Added "MAX ENERGY GAINS ARE INCONSISTENT?" information to "A Brief Explanation of Stats" section. As the title implies, there seems to be some sort of unknown algorythm that dictates whether you get the correct amount of M.ENG, or just +1...

3/2/2017
-Fixed the changelog. It's supposed to be the latest log first, right? xD!
-Fixed all M.STA entries!
-Added "Day", "Night", and "Day/Night" to all shops including the secret shop (Night). Ignored the Dojos because they're all Day/Night anyways.

3/1/2017
-Added "GAINING MAX STAMINA" and "HIDDEN MAX STAMINA CAP" information to "A Brief Explanation of Stats" section
-Added Oak Hill Mall, McNamara Street, Ocean Heights Ghetto, Ocean Heights Mall, Lil' Tokyo Mall, Merville Mall
-Changed "To Be Continued..." section to "What's Left To Do:"
-Added proof of Lotto Ticket success thanks to Dodecahedron Pizza Time.

2/28/2017 - Found out what the Wondrous Lady does. Credits to The Koogs/Undertaker Grim!
- Also noticed MAX stat gains may be tied to the amount of CURRENT stat you have - at least when connected with STA. This will need further testing tomorrow.
--Due to this, fixed an error with the Sauna M.STA value from +60/+1 to +60/+15.
- Added a spreadsheet offered by Undertaker Grim to compare to my own research! There may be discrepencies between our stats due to what was mentioned above: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MJSKKuL2uTD3sVo-qsDqUIiH-X3RHkhUsf2iJtx1wKY/edit#gid=0

2/28/2017 - First Iteration of the guide! Grotto Mall, Riverfront Mall, Sticksville Mall, FlatIrons, and Oak Hill completed.







OVERVIEW
Hello! This is a list of every shop I've found so far ingame, what items they sale, and the stats obtained from said items. As of 3/1/2017, I BELIEVE I've completed every store in the game. If there is a store or a mall I missed, by all means please post down below what it is and where it is, and I'll happily add it in.

WHAT YOU WILL FIND IN THIS GUIDE:

1. A brief explanation of what each stat does and how they work.
2. Pictures of every mall, including where they are on the map.
3. Pictures of the stores and their list of items.
4. Stats gained from every item in said stores.
5. My recommendations per mall.
6. Dojos I've found so far.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS!!!
If you see ANYTHING amiss, or would like to add to the list, then please post! Don't be shy! This game is brand new, and this is my first ever guide. Now, let's get to it.
A Brief Explanation of Stats


ATK = Attack - How much damage you deal with special attacks (NOT with normal hand to hand combos!) This seems to also effect direct grapple attacks like Provie's grab+knee. It does not effect grab+throw attacks. Thanks to CrazyHermit for clarifying!
WPN = Weapon - How much damage you deal with weapons.
THR = Throw - How much damage you deal throwing weapons or enemies.
AGI = Agility - Effects your character's stun time (when knocked down, frozen by nerd grenades, etc). Also effects jump attack damage. Thanks to Schwinner and Nero for figuring this out!
DEF = Defense - How much damage you can withstand.
STR = Strength - How much damage you deal hand to hand. It also provides extra knockback to your attacks. This can be a boon for some characters and a huge bust for others, so be forewarned.
WLP = Willpower - Explained Below

STA = Stamina - your "health bar"
ENG = Energy - Explained Below
SPC = Special Power - Your "MP" in this game. The higher the stat, the more "MP" you have to use special abilities.

WILLPOWER, STAMINA, ENERGY, and SPECIAL POWER BARS

The Green bar is your Stamina, or Health bar.
The Red bar under it is your Willpower bar. When your Stamina bar depletes to zero, your character survives and stands back up if you have willpower. If both your willpower and stamina bar depletes however, you're fully K.O'd and are sent back to your hideout.

The Blue bar under it is your Special Power bar. This depletes while using special abilities (like Provie's Windmill. Any ability that uses the "S" button). It regains pretty quickly, however.

The Red-To-Yellow bar under your character portrait is your Energy bar. The more damage you block, the more this depletes. If it fully depletes, you're unable to block anymore.


Stats in this game come in two different categories. Your Current Stat and your Maximum Stat ( CurrentStat/MaximumStat)

Maximum stats are increased through two ways: levelling up or consuming certain items (food, books, comics, etc) So far, only STA, ENG, and SPC Maximum Stats are increased via consumables. All the other Maximum stats are increased via levelling up (that I know of).

GAINING MAX STAMINA

I came to realize during creating this guide that Max Stamina gains are directly connected to your Current Stamina stat. If you have less than max, or the item you're eating does not fill your stamina to full, the amount of MAX Stamina you get from that food will be lowered.

Either way, there's only one best way to gain MAX STAMINA incredibly quickly and cheaply...and it's right there in Waterfront Mall (details in that section).

HIDDEN MAX STAMINA, ENERGY, AND SPECIAL POWER CAP (STA, ENG, SPC)

As stated, there is a hidden cap to how much MAX STAMINA, MAX ENERGY, and MAX SPECIAL POWER you can get per level. If you notice the game telling you your maxed stamina is maxed out, you need to level up to have it go any higher.

MAX ENERGY GAINS ARE INCONSISTENT?
After a bit of testing, max energy gains seem to rely on something, but no one is entirely sure as to what. If you're getting only 1 energy when you should be getting more, try buying the same item again. If it's still happening, I suggest just buying something that gives 1 ENG and costs little. For instance, the Churro from Carnita's Way gives +1 ENG and +1 SPC, but only costs 4.25. Merv Burger from Merv's Burger is a good one too if you only just need ENG.

UPDATE: A theory made by King Dedede might shed light on this little conundrum. It would need further testing, but I can somewhat concur this to be correct:

Originally posted by King Dedede:
I think I've figured out why Max ENG gains are inconsistent. Max ENG gains are tied to your level.

When I was upgrading and leveling Glen, I decided to go to Bookface and buy a Gaia's Bio. When I consumed it, I actually gained a whopping +9 to my Max ENG, and I was level 17 at the time. When I bought another Gaia's Bio at levels 25/26, I only got +4 to my Max ENG, and I bought another one afterwards to confirm it.

My theory is that the devs wanted players to focus on upgrading the stat early on, and punishiing those who did so late game. Pointless anyways, I think, since the cheapest foodsthat can upgrade the stat always give one point anyways, and it's better to buy the cheaper foods to build up the stat anyways. I'll admit that this may be wrong, though, but I really think it's tied to your level. The higher it is, the lower the gains.



Raising your current stat for all stats seem to solely rely on consuming items. Now with that all said, let's actually get to the part you probably clicked on this guide to look at!
Shop Item Guide
Below is the meat of this guide. There are a few things to keep in mind.

1. I know I'm a broken record, but this is a Work In Progress. Keep any negative criticism to yourself. However if you have anything constructive, go for it. I'd love to have the community help update this guide.

2. Consuming an item that gives stats that is already maxed will render that item useless (unless it gives other stats that aren't already maxed). Make sure to check your stats in your pause menu. (You can do so by pressing the "Special" key, which is RB on controller, Shift on keyboard)

3. I tried to make the layout as simple as possible. All stats are in a grid, and show up like they do in your Stat window ingame: CurrentStat/MaximumStat. So if an item gives 0 current stat but 5 maximum stat, the stat in question will be: 0/+5

4. After typing all of this, I came to realize that ATK, WPN, THR, AGI, DEF, STR, and WLP don't seem to have any maximum stat boosting consumables (that I know of so far). It seems the only way to raise those max stats is through levelling up. However I kept the 0/0 set up for all stats to keep things clean and orderly.
Grotto Mall

Grotto Mall only has one store, however there is a dojo down the street (You can't miss it. It's the door to the right of Purple Bee when you fight him). There is also a "secret" little shop after the arcade and a true Secret Shop in the Armstrong Tunnel to the left of the mall.

Queen of Cats (Day)

All cats purchased are sent to the Waterfront Mall Hideout. They don't seem to do anything other than roam about and gradually make a mess out of their kitty litter. However there's a secret to them, which I'll put in spoilers in case there are those who wish to find out for themselves.

After buying one, a yarn sword appeared in the middle of the hideout. My guess is, this sword was supposed to spawn after you bought all the cats, because I saw this after doing exactly that:

UPDATE: HAH! I was right! They fixed this in Update 4. You now have to buy ALL cats to obtain the yarn sword.

The yarn sword acts like a slightly shorter rake without the ability to smack people if they run over it on the ground. It does about 15+ damage per swing. It also respawns in the hideout.


Blade's Dojo


Blade's Dojo is the first Dojo you'll no doubt see. I won't be listing the abilities, as I'm trying to keep this guide as on point as possible, and listing each ability for each character and what they do will completely detract from what is supposed to be an item guide.

Arcade Mini Golf (Day/Night)

Head through the arcade to get to this area. After defeating all enemies, this store becomes available. Thanks to DraconisG for bringing this to my attention.

The Secret Shop (Night, after meteor is removed)

This shop is located within the Armstrong Tunnel, shown in the picture above (it's the small double doors Provie is standing just to the left of, NOT the door to the right). It's basically a secret dojo with only one technique to be bought. According to Auxois, the technique needs 63 SPC to buy.
Waterfront Mall

Waterfront mall has only 2 stores. It also however has a hideout. It's a good base of operations during the early game due to the sauna nearby. Cats you buy from Queen of Cats come here.

Wanna's Sauna (Day/Night)

Wanna's Sauna is the best place to go to quickly heal up and gain MAX STA since it gives a whopping +15. If you're not getting +15, make sure your current STA is full (This is all explained in the "A brief explanation of stats" section).

The sauna is conveniently situated right beside a hideout as well, and it's pretty cheap. This is THE place to go for MAX stamina gains as well. There's no other place and no other food that gives this amount of stamina while also costing so little.

Edamame is a good way to gain certain important MAX stats early. Everything else is hit and miss. Salmon roll looks good stat-wise but can be pretty expensive, especially during the early game.

MY RECOMMENDATIONS
This is a really good spot to relax and pummel enemies to death for their money early game. There's a hideout right there, a restaurant that sells a nice stat boosting item for relatively cheap (Edamame), and you can heal up/max out your current Max Stamina pretty quickly via the sauna. I don't suggest buying any food "to go" though as none but the most expensive give good health. If you need to, just stick with edamame. At the very least, you're getting good stats as well. Octopus Roll sounds like a good deal with its +3 str, but you should save your money until you get to the Sticksville Mall, which is just a few screens to the left of this one.
Sticksville Mall

Sticksville Mall is home to 4 stores. This will probably be the main area you'll want to go to for your stat boosting needs, at least during early game.

Energy Drink grants double jump for about 10-15 seconds. If you're having trouble with platforming in certain parts of the game, I highly suggest grabbing a few of these on your travels!

MY RECOMMENDATIONS


Dry Beef-Stick from Wee-Mart is a really good, cheap way of gaining +ATK. It also gives +1MAX SPC.

Pollo Taco is where you want to get your Str stat. +1 Str for 3.30, which, after a few calculations, makes it the cheapest way to gain that particular stat. This is why I said to not buy the Octopus Roll from Waterfront.
Carne Asada and Salad Burrito from Carnita's are good to take on the go. They both give a hefty amount of Stamina (Health). Salad Burrito is a little more expensive, but worth it if you can afford it. Ghost Chili does a fire breath attack that only lasts for a split second, and does minimal damage to enemies so I don't think it's worth it as much.

You can't go completely wrong with any of the books or comics available in this mall. All tailor toward a particular stat that you might need boosting. Just remember to keep an eye on your stat window.

MY RECOMMENDATIONS

This place is perfect for grabbing food to go (or to heal up if you're nearby). +40/+3 STA/M.STA for less than 5 bucks is pretty nice. The Spicy Chili might be helpful if you need stats in those particular categories, but other than that I'd stay away from it.
Also, don't make him smile. He's been through alot.

Kinda funny how the Hamburger is the best item to buy in a Chicken restaurant. +40/+10 STA/M.STA is pretty damn good. If you need to raise your health, this would be the way to go I think. Cheese from Le Jambon Cache is a close second, but you're really better off paying the few extra bucks. The Pizza Slice has a very nice spread of stats, so if you need all of those then I'd suggest that as well.

What's Left To Do:
1. Fix any erroneous errors found.
2. Re-buy everything from Waterfront, Sticksville, Flatirons, and Oak Hill with full STA to get the correct M.STA boosts for each item. 3/2/2017 Finished!
3. Find any stores that might be missing.
4. Find out what "Fine A Suit"'s items do.
5. Find out what the P-Bot is and does.
6. Figure out the correlation between gaining the correct amount of M.ENG and only getting +1.

As always, if you've found anything amiss, don't hesitate to post down below so I can get it fixed. Thank you!

So I was thinking about the ENG problem a friend brought up and about this. It's just a theory of mine, but it makes a lot of sense.

The ENG growth formula must be using the same formula as STA. Both cap at 533, and only minor adjustments would be needed to make it consistent. However, ENG recovers automatically, so there's no real reason to factor the current amount. They instead tried to compare your current max to your possible max, which you can't reach if it gets too high.

Rough pseudocode:
if(cEng+boost>=mEng-boost)
cEng+=boost/5
else
cEng+=1

@Beamng That should be the Grab button...What are you trying to pick up? Are you playing solo or online? Perhaps there's some sort of weird latency going on if it's the latter?
Best guide ever! TY! Now if I can only figure how to PICK SOMETHING UP... off the floor... grab doesn't work, block doesn't work, punch doesn't work, kick doesn't work, use doesn't work?

@Doobie Keebler I'll do some testing on that myself later today.
Alright, went ahead and tested it just now. I know for a fact it removed your wanted level, but it seems they either removed that feature or it's randomized. I editted the section stating this. Thanks for pointing it out.

@Charlie Brown I didn't really add the vending machines in this guide. They aren't very reliable, and I admittedly just ignored them. As for the errors, thanks for pointing em out. Also Karma Jolt has actually been in this series since its debut, so not surprised someone made a song about it that has connections to this game.

Oh,I forget one thing about KARMA JOLT that there is actually a song called this name,and its lyrics seems have some connactions with the game.

Also,to some extent,the canned drink,KARMA JOLT,is "sold"by the vending machine,so I guess it is one of the shop items?The vending machine is not broken after U "pay the bill",it will restock time to time.I don't have the exact rules about how or when it will be refilled,to my experience,U need to hang out in other zones for quite a time.
