About John Bedford

John is Metabomb's Editor in Chief, and is responsible for all of the Hearthstone news, features and guides content on the site.

Our Artifact Item Shop guide contains a list of all items in the game, and explains how the Shopping Phase works in Artifact.

Artifact is due to enter a slightly more open beta phase next week, and ahead of the full launch at the end of November. We've been busy providing starter guides for all the key areas of the game, and in our next article we're taking a look at the Item Shop.

When you create a deck in Artifact, you're able to include a collection of equippable items along with the rest of your cards. Once both players have worked through all three board “lanes” in the game, they get to spend some of the gold they've earned killing creeps and heroes on a random selection of these items - and others.

That's the system in very simple terms, but as with all things in Artifact the complexity lies in the fine details. In this guide, we've broken down everything we currently know about how Artifact's Item Shop works, so you have a clear grounding in what to expect.

This article is very much a work in progress at this stage. Once Artifact enters beta we'll be expanding on our guide considerably, with tips on what to prioritise when browsing the Item Shop.

If you're completely new to the game we strongly recommend looking at our core Artifact guide. It explains key gameplay mechanics and will help you access all of our Artifact content

Item Shop Overview

Here's a clear, step by step explanation of how the Item Shop functions in Artifact:

  • During each Shopping Phase - which takes place after all three boards (or "lanes") have been processed - you'll be presented with three panels containing items from the shop.
  • The panel to the right will always contain one of a handful of items that the devs always want players to have access to.
  • The middle panel will always feature one of the items you've included in your deck. You need to include a minimum of 9 such cards when crafting your Artifact deck.
  • When you purchase something from this middle panel, it'll be replaced with a new option immediately. This means buying from the middle panel should be your priority when making multiple purchases.
  • The remaining left-hand panel is called the Secret Shop, and can potentially contain any items from across the item list.
  • This panel is designed to highlight game-changing items that players were unlikely to build their deck around. In this sense it provides an element of excitement that might just solve an unexpected problem presented by your opponent's strategy.

Item Shop Equipment List

Here are all of the items that exist in Artifact, and that can potentially be added to your deck if the options arise.

If you find any of the terms contained in this list confusing, take a look at our Artifact Glossary which explains all the keywords, terms and mechanics in the game.
