Trickster/Drop List

Version 0.9 (March 8, 2002) : The Trickster list is complete at last. Unless 
someone finds a new monster that none of us has ever seen before, of course. I 
am still missing 13 dropped items (of monsters that appear in locations where 
I can't return, like Lucadia's Shrine), plus the bosses - for a while it 
seemed that none of them would have anything, so I never Lucky Shot them... 
until Lady Harken finally yielded a Secret Sign. I'd have to play again from 
the beginning to updated those, though... so unless one of you sends the info, 
the FAQ will probably stay as is.

I) THE BASICS
+ Trickster is the third Fast Draw learnt by Jack. It is also, in my humble 
opinion, one of the most useful. The steal rate depends on the monster, but 
having a high level and a high Response rating helps tremendously. 
+ Lucky Shot (and the Randomizer effect Best Shot) are spells that do very 
little damage. But they deal the killing blow, the monster has a 100% chance 
to drop any item he possesses. High Magic helps, obviously. If you do 0 damage 
with a Lucky Shot, equip Cecilia with the best spellbook available (the 
Necronomicon if you have it) and the best Rune (the Chrono Rune once you get 
it). If that still doesn't work, use the Advanced Black Magic spell Banish to 
lower the enemy's Magic Resistance. Be careful, as Banish rarely works (if it 
does, you'll see the monster shrink to half its normal size).
+ The Bone item (found in Saint Centour during the attack) can cast Lucky Shot 
if Mysticed. Very useful, since Lucky Shot is VERY expensive to cast.
+ Keep all of Jack's weapons. That way you can taylor your attacks to leave 
your enemies barely alive so Cecilia can Lucky Shoot them to death.

III) IN A NUTSHELL
+ Don't expect to steal / win good equipment by hunting monsters. Most of the 
time, you will already have better weapons and armors than anything the 
monsters have. There are exceptions to this, though : see below.
+ Some monsters (Stormdrakes for example) are incredibly hard to steal from. 
If you can't get what you want in 4 or 5 tries, you'd better give up (unless 
you're writing a FAQ, that is).
+ Stealing is THE best way to have plenty of rare healing items : Magic 
Carrots (numerous monsters), Full Revives (Alfase, Hydra, Minatous), and 
Ambrosias (mainly from Shelzauruses).
+ You can boost your stats as well, but usually Apples are pretty hard to 
steal. Sand Stags have Power Apples, Fafneils have Agile (you can also find 
those after defeating Acid Bunnies, but it's not as easy), Armordrakes and 
Dumptys have Hardy, and Hazenbergs and Humptys have Mystic.
+ Acid Bunnies are a good source of Lucky Cards. Use those against the bosses, 
the Hayokontons or the Bunnies themselves, and raise your levels faster.
+ If you find yourself in trouble against a Boss, use Goat Dolls. You'll be 
able to buy them late in the game, but in the meantime you can steal some from 
Niebasses, as soon as you have the Earth Golem.
+ Why pay for Jack's Fast Draws ? Get Secret Signs from the Zeins (all of 
them) and from some bosses, and reduce the cost to a measly 1 MP !
+ Steal or win Duplicators by fighting Hayokontons on their islands near the 
Isle of Conflict. Be warned : they're tough. It would probably be better to 
wait until you've tackled the arena and won yourself a few Full Libras, to 
protect yourself against their Direct Voice and Human Experimentation attacks. 
On the brighter side, they are worth a ton of experience points and Gella. 
Don't forget to use a Lucky Card !
+ As soon as you reach the Outer Ocean, you can make easy money by stealing 
Cross Cloaks from the Stokers on Demon's Lab Island. They're the only monsters 
there, appear in threes, and are pitifully weak. Best of all, they guard their 
items very poorly : you should have a 90 % or so steal rate against them. 
You'll make about 15 000 Gella per fight. Not bad, and they're not nearly as 
dangerous as the Hayokontons...
+ While you're in De Le Metallica, don't forget to win a Necronomicon or two 
from the Necronomic enemies. It's the best spell book for Cecilia, and you'll 
need it if you want to use Lucky Shot on some of the tougher monsters. They 
hardly ever drop it, though, so unless you feel VERY lucky you'd better Lucky 
Shoot them to death.
+ In the Abyss, you can steal Frog Badges from Wojanoids and Fish Badges from 
Largons. Frog Badges are left-hand accessories that protect from all 4 
elements, while Fish Badges protect from Thunder, Holy and Darkness. Equip 3 
Frog Badges before the fight with Raguragula, as it will nullify his only 
powerful attack (Volcanic Bomb, a Fire elemental spell). Without his Volcanic 
Bomb, Ragu is a joke ! Who needs Goat Dolls anyways ? 
+ Some optional bosses have some of the best equipment for each character. 
They are :
*Angol Moa (Juggernaut, best sword for Jack)
*Barbados (Dist Dims, best staff for Cecilia)
*Leviathan (Pret-a-porte, best armor for Cecilia)
*Lucifer (Jade Wilder, best armor for Jack)
*Monster Z (Doom Bringer, a sword for Jack ; Juggernaut is better, as the Doom 
Bringer lowers Jack's luck to Worst)
*Raguragula (Sheriff Star, best left-hand item in the game, usable by anybody)
*Rang Flash (Divine Blade, best sword for Rudy)
*Sado (Braver Vest, best armor for Rudy)
Don't worry, they drop their stuff every time (otherwise there would be no 
purpose in killing them).

IV) THANKS 
To ErgGibbon@aol.com for his walkthrough, which got me started. He's missed 
two or three monsters, and his steal/drop list is far from complete, but the 
walkthrough is perfect, and anyhow he got all of the important stuff.
