Realistically though there are only like 10-12 items or something that you have to buy from the secret shop so it doesn't take long to get them down.
It again comes down to the issue of being easy to understand for newcomers. And so far the only things that i've seen that indicate what needs to be bought at the secret show are some dull red text in the item description that it needs to be bought there and the message that tells you about it after you try to 'do it wrong'.
It should be clearer on what needs to be bought at the secret shop. The secret shop should also probably only list the special items or perhaps the default window that opens only lists the special items. As it is it seems that special items are lumped in with every other item and that makes it difficult to sort things out (though i'm also finding the store in its entirety a bit messy in general but whether that's just because I don't understand it yet is still to be determined).
Or at the VERY least they need to make it that if you try to outright buy a special item you can just buy it rather than requiring all the items beforehand. Basically what happened was that I had Maybe 2/4 basic items that could upgrade to a special item but I had the gold to skip those items and outright buy the special item. I went to the secret shop and tried to buy the special item, the transaction went through but no special item. I then saw that one the other recipe items was in my 'stash' so I had to go down to main base and as soon as I got there my item went through and I got the special item. I simply should have gotten the special item as soon as I tried to outright buy it regardless of whether I had the basic items already.
