Two options really
Pendant:
This is heavily intertwined with the storyline and you normally don't get it till end game under certain circumstances. We don't actually know what it does though.

Master Key:
This will open all locked doors that would normally required a key found in a different area. It is reusable.

Umm what about the firebombs? They allow you a much easier first encounter with the tutorial boss and therefore a better weapon.

Pick Pendent or Master Key, the other stuff isn't worth it. You don't NEED to have the firebomb to take down the boss without much trouble.

There are good...if you want the Tutorial Bosses weapon, otherwise I'd go with the other two options. Best combo right now is Thief and ether Black Firebombs (if you want tutorial boss weapon) or Black Pendant (for more story) since if you choose Thief you get Master key automatically, and can still choose a gift. Though he doesn't have the best of stats so it's a trade off in the beginning.

firebombs are good... if you're bad at dodging.

consider the tut boss the entrance level exam to get you good at dodging.

Making my character right now and I'm gonna go for the best of both worlds. I've read that your starting class really makes little difference so I'm going Thief (since it starts with the Master Key anyway) with Pendant as my gift.
