As of the latest update, this achievement is now obtainable.

This achievement is pretty easy so long as you visit every shop in the game and buy everything new the moment you visit it. You only need to buy each item in the game from the shop once. So if a shop in town A sells a herb, you do not need to buy a herb again from the shop in town's B and C.

You must buy all items in one playthrough. Missing some in one and buying just those items in the next will not unlock the achievement.

The guide I followed was Tim333's walkthrough (found on GameFAQs), coupled with a checklist compiled by Za Pantsupati (listed below).

There are *a lot* of missable, single visit only locations however (around half the game is single visit only!), which the game gives zero warning about. One town in particular that you simply *must* be aware of when trying to do this achievement, and the town which is most likely to screw you over is Verahansha.

At some point during your visit in Verahansha you will be tasked to fix a train. DO NOT do this until you have bought everything from the shops across the rest of the Verahansha districts, as you will not be able to return to them once you ride that train. Due to the price of the items here (you need a total of around 70,000 Gold), the size of the town and the sheer number of shops available, it gives the impression that it is a 'main town' that you can revisit and explore as you wish. I thought I could just come back later to these districts when I had more money, only to find that I couldn't return once I rode the train. Even though you stick around in other districts of the same town for a long whilst afterwards.

I have made a note where I feel it is necessary for you to know that you cannot return, to help.

The following is extracted from Za Pantsupati's post (with his permission):

This checklist will list everything you can collect when you first visit a town. See the end of the guide for a section on backtracking to other areas to receive treasure with spells you learn later in the game. Following this and Tim's guide, you will earn every achievement in the game, except for only fighting the mandatory fights.

Note about Tim Variations: these listings are things that are different or missing from Tim's guide, due to the game being updated since he wrote it.

Note about Treasures: Tim's guide sometimes listed treasures that you could not access when you first arrived, or he did not have them in his overview but mentioned them in the actual text. I have tried to remove or add these as I played, but may have missed some. Please let me know if you see any errors.

Note about shops: the items listed may be missing what is actually available at the shop. This is for two reasons. One, you only need to purchase something once; Two, it will be listed at its cheapest price, which may not be the first time you see it. You can always purchase it the first time you see it, but just be aware of where you mark it off on the checklist.

Note on Achievement Unlocked/Achievement Progress: make sure you refer to those achievements in the guide, as not everything is automatically done. I have simply put benchmarks in for where you unlock things. You may need to take actions outside of collecting what I've listed and progressing the story. The very first one "Acolyte" is an example of this.

*Make sure you purchase everything before leaving the area. Some of these places can not be returned to.*
