Notes[edit]

  • Two collectors offer items worth far more than 9 Gold in exchange for 3 Mantid Pincers:
    • 1 Gold bonus: Chen Po Chin offers armor worth 10 Gold at merchants.
    • 31 Gold bonus: Marik Kuri provides kits that cost 40 Gold. (If you sell the Salvage Kits instead of using them, the bonus drops to 11 Gold. If you sell the Identification Kits instead of using them, the bonus drops to 1 Gold.)
    • 91 Gold bonus: if you use Marik Kuri's Belt Pouches, since they would normally cost 100 Gold if purchased. (However, these pouches are only worth 5 Gold if sold.)
