Spoiler New antiques dealer related items?


shop refresh
- I expect this to exchange the 6 available direct buy items (similar to the premium button)
instant exchange
- I expect this to finish a currently running bartering (again - like the premium-option)

I assume, similar to the coins and supply rush items, these will be available in upcoming events as daily specials or other rewards

Instant exchange as in instant swap of prizes, not ending any current auctions. The wording you used is kind of confusing, I significantly doubt inno would allow someone to diamond finish a crows next upgrade right when it pops up for 10k or whatever.


the hammer is the symbol of the auction, not the barter
maybe the item is to rush through the 30mn when you cannot join an auction
