Shops

General Shops in Anarchy Online (often entitled 'Supermarkets' in game) are shops that sell a wide variety of different goods at various quality levels. These shops can be found in most major towns and even a few minor ones.

Shops of these types are divided into Basic, Advanced, and Superior (in Omni, Superb) shops. Basic shops sell goods that largely range from ql 1 to ql 50, Advanced shops sell goods with a ql range of ql 20-90, and Superior shops sell goods from ql 70 to ql 125. Tradeskill terminals will sometimes break this rule and sell components at higher QLs, and there are some items that can be found in normal terminals ranging up to ql 200 (such as Hacker Tools or Trimmers).

Normally these different types of shops are separate, but Neutrals have a combined Advanced and Superior shop setup that leaves out Superior Nano-Crystals.

Clan characters cannot open Omni shop terminals, and vice versa. Neutral characters cannot buy from certain Clan and Omni terminals, such as Clothing terminals (meaning they cannot buy Omni-Med Suits). The exception to these rules is Trade terminals, which any faction can buy from and sell to.

With the obvious exception of Nano Crystals, shops of different grades (Basic, Advanced, and Superior) sell the same items, but at a higher QL. Three exceptions that impact players the most are: Advanced and Superior shops do not sell Implants, and Basic shops do not sell Containers. All grades of shop sell the same General Nanos, e.g. the Expertise and Boost Nano Lines, which are obviously the same QL.

Shops often contain electronic Billboard displays of ingame and out of game features such as Helpbot and advertising, and game story elements such as 'Dreadloch Arms and Armor'.

General Shop Types[edit]

  • 'Fair Trade' most common Neutral shop franchise
  • 'Vanguards' common Clan shop name, signifying management by the Vanguards consortium.
  • 'Emporium', uncommon Omni name. Most are unnamed, presumably because they are Omni-Tek owned.
