Merchant in Dark Alliance refers to Kartik who is the only Merchant in the game. Kartik can be found before starting any missions and he will provide you with potions, and upgrades for your equipment in exchange of Crystals and Gold that you can gather by completing Missions, looting the area and defeating Enemies. You can also sell unequiped equipment to Kartik in exchange of Gold.


Upgrading Consumables

You can upgrade Potions at the merchant's stand. All potions start at level 1 and can be upgraded up to level 3.


Materials: Crystals

There are 5 types of Crystals that can be obtained:

  • Common (common_crystal_materials_dark_alliance_wiki_guide_25px
  • Uncommon (uncommon_crystal_materials_dark_alliance_wiki_guide_25px
  • Rare (rare_crystal_materials_dark_alliance_wiki_guide_25px
  • Epic (epic_crystal_materials_dark_alliance_wiki_guide_25px
  • Legendary(legendary_crystal_materials_dark_alliance_wiki_guide_25px)

The rarity of the item you want to upgrade will settle the rarity of the Crystals you are going to need. You can upgrade or downgrade Crystals to obtain Crystals of higher or lower rarity.


Gold (coin_icon_dark_alliance_wiki_guide_25px) is the Currency throughout the game that can be obtained by defeating Enemies, looting the areas for chests or breakable stuff that may store something inside. Completing Missions is rewarded with Gold and Materials. The harder the difficulty chosen for the Quest, the higher the reward in Gold.

Gold is mainly used to upgrade your equipment, but you will generally also need Materials to do so. Gold can also be used to upgrade Materials.   



You can customize the visual appearance of your Equipment. Skins are purely cosmetic and do not change the Equipment's combat stats
