There are a total of 117 items in Desktop Dungeons. Out of these, 74 are lockerable using the Guild's lockers, and as such can be taken into dungeon runs as an extra preparation. The in-game Codex lists 112 items (5 of the items do not have a Codex entry). Note that the codex erroneously tracks progression against 114 items, so a fully explored kingdom will list 112/114 items in the codex. Kingdoms started before March 2015 will most likely only list 109/114 items, as the release of the Enhanced Edition wiped all previous Codex entries, and three of the items are tied to early-game quests that can only be encountered during the beginner quests.

There are up to 38 items that can show up in the dungeon shops. These items belong to one of three shop item groups:

  • all 8 Basic Items are available as soon as Bazaar is unlocked, and remain to be the most frequently encountered item type even later on;
  • the 22 Quest Items only become available once they are individually unlocked through their respective quests, and are normally rarer than the Basic Items;
  • the 8 Elite Items become available as a batch once Bazaar is upgraded to Level 3, though normally remain quite rare finds.

Bazaar offers preparations that can alter the chances of each item group showing up in the shops.

For more information on the shop algorithm, check out the Shop Spawn page.

The Following 8 items become available in shops after you upgrade the Bazaar building in your kingdom to lvl 3. You can increase the odds of finding them in shops by using the "Elite Items" preparation. They can be placed in your Guild Locker after a run, and some can be found in various subdungeons, taken out and lockered "out of order".

Witch Potions

These potions are available as preparations and most can be bought from the in-dungeon Alchemy Shop. The unlock for the preparation and in-dungeon shop is different for each potion. Some potions are not normally available for purchase in-dungeon, but are available in the Daily Challenge.

Icon Item Description Unlock Preparation Unlock Shop Cost CP
Health Potion.png Health Potion Restores 40% of your maximum HP (rounded down) and removes poison Always available Always available 10 10
Mana Potion.png Mana Potion Restores 40% of your maximum MP (rounded down) and removes mana burn Always Available Always Available 10 10

SchadenfreudePotion.png Schadenfreude Restores 1 MP for every point of damage taken on your next attack

(Note: Mana burn is applied before damage is dealt, so if you attack an opponent with mana burn, it will take away all your mana and then this potion will kick in to restore your mana.)

Witch level 2 Complicated Task Part 5 15 10
QuicksilverPotion.png Quicksilver Potion Grants temporary 50% Dodge and dodge prediction, removed after a successful dodge Witch level 3 Daily Dungeon Only (can be obtained from God: Tikki Tooki Tikki Tooki with the God boon: Reflexes Reflexes) 15 10
ReflexPotion.png Reflex Potion Grants temporary First Strike and a free retaliation (extra attack) against the next monster you attack. Witch level 3 Daily Dungeon Only (can be obtained from God: Tikki Tooki Tikki Tooki with the God boon: Reflexes Reflexes) 15 10
WHUPAZ.png Can of Whupaz Instead of dealing normal damage, your next attack will reduce the health of the enemy you strike to 75%, unless it would do more damage normally.

A niche trick, but which had been of prime importance in the early dailies : if the monster has 1 HP only, it will kill it even if the monster is immune to the blow (for example a half-dragon hitting Durr, who is magic immune (in magma mines), would kill him when his life has been reduced to 1 HP).

Do not use Reflex potion with this as you do not get additional one hit.

Witch level 3 Daily Dungeon Only (can be found inside the Metal Spider Temple subdungeon) 20 10

Items Found In Dungeons

Subdungeon Items

These items are most often found in subdungeons and class challenge runs, and are not available for purchase in shops on regular runs. They come in two main categories, ones you can put in your Guild Locker and then use as preparations, and ones you can't. Some we're still unclear on in that regard, so feel free to contribute to that investigation.

Dungeon Boss Rewards

The following 6 items can be obtained by defeating tough bosses, and generally can't be found in dungeons otherwise. The Sensation Stone is a bit of an exception, in that it's obtained by killing an optional mini-boss and one can be found in the Tower of Gaan'Telet, but it's somewhat similar to the others. They can all be put into the Guild Locker.

Conversion Fodder

Sometimes, players will want to obtain large amounts of conversion points to better leverage their racial bonus. There are many items well-known as "conversion fodder" that are relatively cheap and effective choices for this purpose. Generally speaking, conversion fodder items are considered to be those which offer more than 3 CP for every 1 GP spent. The following items are all considered conversion fodder:

Item: Bloody Sigil Bloody Sigil (5.6 CP / GP)
This double-edged item is good for low-level characters, but quickly becomes excess baggage for a high-level character. Fortunately, it has a great conversion value and is worth buying for no other purpose than to immediately convert it.

Item: Gloves of Midas Gloves of Midas (4.5 CP / GP)
In addition to offering a superb conversion ratio, this item can also be used to earn additional gold which can be used to purchase even more stuff. As a result, it is highly prized.

Item: Rock Heart Rock Heart (4.3 CP / GP)
The Rock Heart is a great tool for anyone with knockback damage, the Glyph: PISORF PISORF glyph or the Glyph: ENDISWAL ENDISWAL glyph. Once you're done with it, you can convert it for a windfall. For those without the ability to crush walls, it's still worthwhile just for conversion points.

Item: Viper Ward Viper Ward & Item: Soul Orb Soul Orb (4.06 CP / GP)
These superb items grant you immunity to dangerous afflictions, consume only a small item slot, and convert for large amounts of CP when you're done. They're one of the best conversion-fodder buys around.

Item: Balanced Dagger Balanced Dagger (3.67 CP / GP)
A very niche item, usually relegated to vicious-difficulty dungeons where higher-level kills are impractical or for players without mad level-catapult skills like the pros have. However, in other scenarios it makes a good conversion fodder item. With its small size, you can carry it around and use it for what it's worth, then convert it when you're done.

Item: Troll Heart Troll Heart (3.44 CP / GP)
The troll heart will slowly accrue bonus HP as you level up, and can be converted afterwards without losing those hit points. Given its high CP value, this is often a great deal.

Item: Crystal Ball Crystal Ball (3.33 CP / GP)
Given enough gold, the crystal ball can provide you several good mana spikes and can be converted afterward for good conversion value.

Item: Venom Dagger Venom Dagger (3.12 CP / GP)
A consolation prize for those seeking conversion points, the venom sword offers a reasonable amount for a reasonable price. The item itself isn't very useful otherwise, though.

Item: Alchemist Scroll Alchemist Scroll (3.07 CP / GP)
The rules for items like these can be confusing at times, but the alchemist scroll's bonus HP do not disappear when you convert it, meaning this item can be picked up on the cheap, used sparingly, then converted later without much risk.
