Goblin emporium title

The Goblin Emporium is a place where you can trade certain alchemy components for the chance to get "Rare, Epic, or Legendary Equipment". You trade them in to a goblin named Kobo.

  • You trade ten (10) items to receive one item.
  • You can make up to ten (10) trades per day.
  • Tradeable and non-tradeable items are described below.

The items you can receive are:

How to trade in[]

To perform a trade of 10 items for a single better item:

  • Select the 10 items to be traded.
    • In the bottom section of the page (the available items to trade area), click Emporium trade in below any item you want to count toward the 10 items to trade in.
      • The x# count will decrease.
      • The item image will appear above the available items to trade area (where it said, "Choose 10 Items below to trade for a mystery item!").
    • Until you have 10 items selected, the phrase "Requires X more items to roll for a mystery item!" above the trade in items images is displayed.
    • You can click on any of the item images you have in the "selected to trade in" area to return them to the "available items to trade" area at any time.
  • Trade the items.
    • Once you have 10 items selected,
      • Press Emporium button lit to trade them and receive something in exchange.
      • Or click "cancel" to cancel and clear all of the selected items.

What you can trade in[]

Many of the items you receive as gifts or monster loot can be traded in. Tradeable items are displayed in the "Alchemy Ingredients" section (found under Keep > Stats tab > "Alchemy Ingredients" section), with the exception of Battle Hearts. Only alchemy ingredients that do not have any stats (excluding 0 / 0 stats) can be traded in the Goblin Emporium.

What you can't trade in[]

Any item that can be used as an armor, weapon, unit, or magic on its own (found in the "Units" or "Items" sections of your Keep → Stats tab) cannot be traded. These items will have Attack/Defense stats (even 0/0 stats) and include:

Sample 1000 Trades with Kobo[]

A check on 1000 trades gave the following results. There's to say that the drop rate seems to be different from server to server. Someone got Defender several times, five Death Touch Gauntlets, and seven Heroes also, whilst here none of them have been seen. It could be a very, very long time before you get everything you want from Kobo.

If player level is too low, the drop table is impacted. For example, LV20 player may never get items/soldiers which are designed for higher player level such as Celestas Devotion, Deathshield, Dragon Talon, Dreadnought Greatsword, Hellkite Minion, Obsidian Armor, Obsidian Helmet, Serenes Arrow.


  • Introduced May 11, 2010.
  • Goblin Emporium is not available in iOS, but is found on the Keep drop down menu in FB and Web3, under Kobo.
  • The item that you get is random. Giving Kobo certain items will not affect the item you receive.
  • Kōbō (工房) is a Japanese word meaning 'workshop'.
  • Kobo is also a new Hero under the name of "Kobo " which is purchasable from the "Oracle Chest Reward Oblivion ":
    • This hero is purely defensive, and has ZERO attack power up to level 4!
    • At level 4, he adds more lower items into the Emporium (4 extra useless items i.e. individual item chances get smaller).
    • At level 4, he requires fewer items for a trade (i.e., 8 rather than 10).
