Shadow of War Market Place and Currencies explained



The main currency is called Mirian. Mirian can be used to upgrade your gear and fortresses by adding garrisons, warchiefs, your attacking force and more. Mirian can be obtained in one of the following ways:

  • Defeating Treasure Orcs
  • Destroying Gear for Mirian
  • Destroying Orc followers for Gear (which can be destroyed for Mirian)
  • Finding Mirian stashes throughout the game

Gold is the 2nd currency, used to purchase higher tiers of items from the Market Place. it can be purchased in one of the following ways:

  • Through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store or by adding to your Steam Wallet using real money.
  • Awarded in small amounts at specific milestones.
  • Awarded for participating in community challenges.

Shadow of War Market and InGame Currencies

There is nothing exclusive in any of the chests. The difference is quantity and chance to get something of a higher quality as you go up through the tiers. No content in the game is gated by Gold. Everything can be acquired naturally through normal gameplay.

Gold can be purchased with real life money. Here is the price in USD:

  • 500 Gold = $4.99
  • 1000 Gold = $9.99 (+50 Bonus)
  • 2000 Gold = $19.99 (+200 Bonus)
  • 5000 Gold = $49.99 (+750 Bonus)
  • 10000 Gold = $99.99 (+2000 Bonus)


In the very top of the screen is the statistic: Garrison (Number of Followers), Number of Unopened Chests and Consumables.

The categories of items sold at the Market Place are split into:

  • Featured
  • Bundles
  • War Chests
  • Loot Chests
  • Boosts

The chests are split into 3 categories, depending on rarity of the items inside.

  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Mithril

The Quality of the items is split into:

  • Common
  • Rare
  • Epic
  • Legendary

The following are examples shown on the live stream. Not everything was demonstrated by the hosts. Here you can see all that they did show and tell us about.
