Items and Loot

Special Items

Throughout the game you will run across items called "loot." Loot can be traded in for money, and when certain combinations of loot have been traded in, you'll be able to buy cool stuff from the Bazaar. There has been a lot of discussion about which loot is good, where to get it, how to go about keeping/trading it, etc. I'm of the opinion that you really don't care about the overwhelming majority of stuff out there. For example, do you really care how to earn a way to buy a 10 pack of potions? The answer is: no. Just go fight 20 monsters and earn the Gil to buy them out right.

With this in mind, I've put together a collection of the items you may actually WANT to buy from the bazaar (see the table below). Note that items which should be STOLEN may require the thieves cuffs. Be sure to have 3 pair, if possible, when you go after these things.
