In the world of Maplestory, there are two main types of shops. They are

  • Department Stores (also known as Potion shops)
  • Equipment Stores (also known as Weapon and Armor shops)

Equipment stores are generally designed for players currently on a Beginner, First job advancement and early Second job advancment character. Higher level players must either hunt for their equipment, or the materials needed in order to synthesize the equipment. While Department stores are quite different from place to place, all equipment stores throughout the game are quite similar, each stocked with nearly the same items.
