The XP shop is where you spend your experience on items! Item names, types, their prices and functions are all listed here.
To purchase any of these items, do not post in this thread. Instead create your own shop thread for your character in the Sparking Shop board- you may use this thread for all purchases made for your character! Staff will post letting you know when your transaction has been completed in these threads.
Once an administrator has approved your purchase, go to the green trade button in the bottom left corner of the forum site. There you will find gifts sent and received, and you should see a gift given from the administrator that approved your purchase. Accept the trade, and the item is yours.
You can also request to refund items for 50% of their purchased cost at any time in your shop thread. You cannot refund consumable items that you have already used- they will be removed without giving you XP back if you have used them in a thread somewhere. If you purchased an item while it was discounted, it is refunded using the 50% of the discounted price you purchased it at.
25% of the XP spent on items costs count to SMM, which you can read more about in the SMM and LMB thread.
If you wish to spend your Zeni instead, visit the Zeni Shop.
A refresher on the types of items is as follows:
Passive Items: Items that have no effect or very minimal effect on combat
Active Items: Items used in combat and permanently stay with the user.
Consumable Items: Items that have use in combat and are removed from the user's inventory on use.
You can read more about the specific rules regarding items in the Combat Rules thread.
