Finding Treasure
"These guys live for tracking down hidden treasure. Just having one in your party will guarantee the discovery of hidden holes filled with valuable treasure. They're also the only ones that can open giant purses. But real work is beneath them. That's all I have to say about them."

Savvy Merchants are a class of Jobs in Little King's Story. Savvy Merchants appear in Farmland, after purchasing the Shopping Arcade. Merchants will sometimes appears as NPCs that will come to the Castle to add plans to the Kingdom Plan.


Savvy Merchants can dig and aid construction, and can open large purses containing large amounts of treasure. They can also passively detect secret holes that usually contain treasure or spoils by simply walking past them, an ability most useful in the TV Dinnah fight. These holes can usually only be found by commanding a citizen over their exact location. 

Sometimes the Merchants will give Corobo items when he talks to them: the Toy Axe, Casual Clothes, Clothesline, Legendary Dress, and a Kingstone Jewel necessary for the Jewel Book quest.
