> > > I was shopping around in Lyesis, when I stumbled upon my first item of specialness, the Druid's Garb! The problem is, it costs just over one mil, and I only have around 400K. I think I can raise enough money if I sell all my items and equipment, but I'm afraid the following will happen:

I almost positive that my party will die, and I'll not have enough money to resurrect them (I don't have the RESURRECT spell yet), so I'll just have to sell the Druid's garb again to get enough money to resurrect my characters, leaving me with about the same amount of money I had before buying the druid's garb, with no equipment.

Should I just pass up this opportunity at the Druid's Garb and hope to catch it later in the game? (Again, I'm only at level seven.) Or should I sell off all my other equipment to get the Druid's Garb? Again, Druid's Garb, Lyesis, first item of specialness.

> Even if you had enough money, I would have told you not to buy it. The Druid's Garb is a very nice item, it gives your druid a lot of protection, but it's not worth crippling everyone else in your party by selling all their items, especially if you only have level 14 and under characters. You'll have plenty of opportunities to search for those items of extra specialness once you get to level 8 and below and start exploring extensively. I bought my first item of specialness as well, but only because I could afford it by selling off unneeded items and items that wouldn't seriously undermine and cripple my party (For example, sell a Plate Armor +3, but slap on a Plate Armor +1 on the character that sacrificed his Plate Armor +3, you still make a lotta profit).

Let's not forget that you can see what price your equipment will fetch before you sell any of it. A little quick math will tell you whether you can afford the Druid's Garb without actually selling anything.

If you had to sell the Druid's Garb, you would not be left with as much money as before. You would be left with half as much money as before. Not always a good thing.

Anyway, a Druid isn't going to carry your party all alone, at this stage. Better to wait till later, and get the Items of Extra-Specialness when you have either the cash or the luck.
