Items here can be purchased using Victory Coins earned from fighting and robbing. Various items and boosts become available as you increase your fight mastery level and earn the four related Achievements. The maximum fight mastery level required to open up all items is 21 but your mastery level can continue far beyond this.
Group Sales prove there's (more) strength in numbers. Here's how they work: An item is made available in the marketplace with a starting price and starting stats (100/56 in the case of our first Group Sale item, the Onyx 50). Then, as more of the item are sold, its stats are upgraded. When the stats improve, the price increases too, but only for any new purchases of the item. Pre-upgrade purchases get the better stats for free! The level of stats everyone ends up receiving depends on the sales tier achieved by the end of the Group Sale (note the timer in the image, which is counting down to an end time of 2am PDT on 8/26 for the Onyx 50).
