Thanks edhe, I guess I'll have to keep half inching! I've been neglecting it to be honest because it so rarely hits (less than 10% I'd say) and has never got me an rare item. I've found it more fun to pound through battles as fast as possible, picking up dropped items as they appear. The success rate might not be higher than 10% thinking about it, but the gameplay is more rewarding!

What I haven't done yet is let more than one character learn half inch. I'll work on that.

Just to confirm what edhe said for any players in the same stage as me- half inching is definitely the best way to gather items! With all four characters half-inching every turn, it doesn't take too long before the stats work out in your favour and you get a success.

Just out of curiosity (and I don't want to read through the past 11 pages for an answer, spoilers and all that), what's the level cap, if there is one?

The level cap is 99. It'll take a while to get to.

Exactly.

this.
but according to my friend, it has reincarnation, whisch basically means that once you reach the cap in any vocation, you can start that same vocation over in lvl1 but keep all your allocated skill points so you can max all the skills out eventually :)

Once you've progressed enough in the game, when you enter the Stornway Inn, Erinn will show you Krak Pot. It will always be on the counter next to Erinn for you to use whenever you want from that point on.

The consensus on Gamefaqs seems to be that Deftness helps in stealing (although it isn't confirmed in the manual), although I was wrong about it governing hit rate - it increases the chance of a pre-emptive strike (not so useful if you decide to go with agility, which affects your speed) and the chance to strike a critical hit (mighty useful when battling metal slimes).

And I notice you were looking specifically for flurry feathers.They spawn in significant numbers on the map if you want to bolster your number. Bloomingdale for one has a good source of feathers.

Can anyone answer me this though? When I go around to harvest things, sometimes nothing shows up. It doesn't matter if I haven't visited the spot for days (or even at all), but materials seem to be too rare for me. I hear most respawn after an hour of play, but it doesn't seem to be the case.

@edhe - I have that problem sometimes as well. Iusually find this occuring after I haven't visited a region for a couple of real-world days. What usually works for me is to visit the site then come back in a few real-world hours and the item(s) have usually respawned by then.

Exactly.

There's definitely some random element to the items respawning. I was having a hell of a time with Finnessance and Aggressance, because the fisticups south of Stornaway took FOREVER to respawn. Now I've reached the spawn site south of Batsureg, fisticups there respawn almost as soon as I go away and come back, while the Stornaway site still hardly provides any. So it's not the same rule governing every item spawn point as far as I can tell.

If anyone has beaten the main quest and extra Quest no. 125 (Perk Up, Patty!), what did you do after learning the truth about Patty's friend? I'm stumped, and my OST isn't helping at all.

Find Patty['s Friend].

She should be somewhere around the village (batsureg) at night.

Sorry about the error. Find Patty's friend (have a good look around).

I found that using snooze (or kasnooze) on an enemy makes it much easier to steal items.
