Items worth FPSing[]

List of good to steal items:
Name of the item Location Owner Why is it worth taking? Worth to steal
Ring of Influence Tarant J.M. Morant hands down best ring in the game and best FPS in the game regardless of build (unless you do some extreme cases) 5/5
Sword of Baltar Dernholm Lianna Pel Dar This sword so early given to Sogg or used by strong character outright skips combat for next 30 levels 4/5
Enchanted Gaun Black Root Tailor (female only) increase reaction by 30 and is generally good to have, you can kill owner for it at night (her husband fear you forever, but no other consequences) 3/5 fem

0/5 male

Hand Cannon Tarant Insult Master Normally to get Hand cannon player must perform a lot of gymnastics, shop rolls and gang missions in the boil, this one is in plain sight 2/5
Blessed Scimitar Tarant Magic shop Magic Scimitar wiith to hit bonus, not great, but since i listed revolver i feel obligated to list it - i was personally using this item, not terrible + has own spell with 5 charges 2/5
Almstead's Axe Black root Blacksmith Almstead This Axe have +15 to hit and is NEUTRAL, not great by any means, but better than bow/scimitar 3/5
Amulet of K'an-el Quintara Fawn - heal master So this Amulet gives +4CN and +100% regeneration, most stats in amulet and just insane bonus, only con is how late you can obtain it compared to other items on the list 5/5
Small size power armor Caladon Armorsmith Dwarf shopkeeper wear it as armor, if you are in need for one, there you can get it 4/5
Elite Platemail Caladon Dwarf during persuasion master quest This is only single instance of elite platemail in the game, normally player must craft it and invest 5 points in technology - smithy to do so

This armor can be used to craft mechanized platemail or even Automaton

Mechanized platemail Ashbury Quest giver Player got a quest here to retrieve the armor and obrain 400 coins for doing so, i suggest letting spider go lose, give him armor and wait until night to get it back from his body, however any method to get free power armor is good 5/5
Mechanized platemail Tulla Guy outside During the water gem quest if you keep around some of the technological characters and are in market for one, better late than never 3/5
Caladon Crusaiding Armor Caladon MR.Razzia so funny situation, quest require you to give him armor, but you might want it back, killing him by any means land you in troubles with thieves underground and is considered as bad idea, not finishing the quest is valid option, but i just prefer to steal it back 3/5
