Seiken Densetsu 3 / Trials of Mana – Item & Shop Changes

v2.6, by hmsong

The Item Shop in the game felt lacking, especially in the beginning (that’s where you need it the most). And the items in the Byzel Black Market were way too overpowered. And, the normal seeds needed more love. So, this patch changes numerous items available in the shops.

Hopefully, none of the new shop items will end up screwing up any events (will Dreamsee Herb screw up the events in the beginning of the game for certain characters?). If any of you notice something, then please PM hmsong, so he can fix it.

Some notes:

  • All seeds (including Magic Seed and Weapon/Armor Seed) can be bought in stores (most require a Class Change), although you can’t access some stores until certain plot points. See below for more detail. That ought to make money more meaningful, especially by the end of the game.
  • Added Secret Shops in Island of Oblivion and Mana Holyland.
  • The price for most consumable items increased (so that they can be abused less, at least in the beginning). On the other hand, they can be sold for more money.
  • Shuriken (item) can now multi-target.
  • Most seeds do different things (some uses the unused animations).
  • Switched the icon colors for Mysterious Seed and Magic Seed, since Magic Seed uses the animation of water.
  • Stardust Herb’s animation changed from Tinkle Rain to Flash.
  • Angel’s Grail restores 250 HP instead of 999 HP. That way, Angel’s Grail does not make all other items obsolete. It still fully restores all MP (I don’t know how to change that) – Update: I included a patch that doesn’t debuff Angel’s Grail, due to multiple requests.
  • Gunpowder causes self-death (can be used infinitely). Be careful with it.
  • Changed the menu icon colors of some items.
  • Some of Pedan weapons are only available after the Class Change 2. However, those weapons are now stronger than before (although not as strong as the final weapons).
  • Changed few minor things in Elrand, Sultan, Mintos, and Diorre armor shops.

See the attached document for details.

Applying Notes:

  • To combine with the Class Balance patch, apply the Class Balance patch first, then apply this – if you don’t, then you may not get the increased attack power from some of the Pedan weapons.
  • This is specifically for No Header ROM. If you only have a Headered ROM, then you can use TUSH ( to remove the header.
  • Compatible with the English NCorlett-translation patch. But again, you need a No Header ROM. If you are using the translation patch from, then you need to apply the translation to a Headered ROM first, then use TUSH to remove the header. And then you can apply these patches.
  • Compatible with the new Trials of Mana ROM, released in 2019. But again, you need a No Header ROM.

There are other hacks for Seiken Densetsu 3 that you should check out:

Sin of Mana

  • This changes the contents of the game in many ways, such as equipment bonus, level-up change, class balance, difficulty, boss behaviors, running in battles, MP regeneration, dungeon format, and tons of bug fixes. It’s a completely new game though, since so much has changed, and the game progress is slightly different.
  • There is also a forum (google “Sin of Mana forum”), where you can ask the creator (praetarius5018) numerous questions. He is very helpful, and even helps you to create your own hack. He certainly did for me.
  • Sin of Mana is NOT compatible with the new Trials of Mana.
  • Sin of Mana is NOT compatible with hmsong’s patches.

Please leave comments or reviews. This would give the creator ideas on what is good or not, and depending on the situation, even revise the patches.

If you have any questions or find errors, please PM hmsong on (click the name, then click the name next to “Forum Account”, then click “Send PM”).
