Like in any game featuring RPG mechanics, merchants are a godsend in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. While their services are definitely not among the most important in the entire game, the goods they have on sale can make farming for items way less frustrating and time-consuming. As unlocking some of the secret characters requires a decent amount of additional materials, merchants’ services are invaluable for all the completionists out there.
Traveling merchants in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity are not available from the get-go and must be unlocked. And if you haven’t managed to do so already, you have come to the right place. Here’s how to unlock merchants in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
