Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes - How to get rare star shop items

As you play through Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, you may have noticed that, sometimes, a shop will carry a special item listed with a star icon. They are not always in the shop list, but they appear from time to time.

These are rare items (or what I like to call "Star Items", since they are listed with a star icon) that only have a small chance to appear in shops somewhat randomly. Think of it like a rare drop from a battle, only it's in a shop context instead. If you find a rare item in a shop (again, listed with a star), it's best to buy it immediately, since it might be a while for it to show up again.

This page will help explain how these Star Items work, how to save and reload to obtain them, and list out all the star items in the game. Several recipes for the Cooking Contest can only be obtained in this manner.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes - How to Get Rare Shop Items

First, I'll explain how these rare items work. 

When you check a shop menu, the game rolls an invisble dice. There's about a 1/20 chance a Star Item appears in the shop list, if there is one available at that shop. After you do this, you must wait 30 minutes for the timer to reset, to check the menu again, and roll again. (In other words, you can't close and re-open the menu repeatedly and hope the item appears.)

Based on this information, you probably can figure out how you can exploit this to help you gain every Rare Shop item in the game.


How to get star items

  1. Wait 30 minutes. This is to 'reset' the timer that allows the 'dice' to roll when you check a shop.
  2. Save, probably at the nearest Inn
  3. Check the shop menu with the item you are interested in.
  4. If your item doesn't appear, reload until the item shows up. You don't have to go back to the main menu or reset the game, just "load" from the in-game menu.
