Hey everyone. I have a cold and I've been playing Mystery Dungeon: EoTime to pass the time. So, while whipping Zero Isle North for the umpteenth time, I found a nasty trick to robbing Kecleon shops and I figured I'll share it here because I'm sure some of you will be able to put it to use.
Here's the trick: Everybody knows how you can use a Pure Seed or Trawl Orb to steal the stuff and run to the next floor, right? Well, there's something else that allows you to steal the stuf AND make a crapload of money. First, bring a bunch of valuable stuff with you into the dungeon. When you find a Kecleon Shop, lay out as much of your valuable stuff as will fit on the carpet. Then, leave and have Kecleon pay you for it. THEN, go back on the carpet and pick all your stuff up in addition to the stuff you want to steal. Leave the carpet, don't pay for the items, eat a Pure Seed, and go down the stairs.
Note that this trick works well in Zero Isle North, since the shops there usually have a large amount of carpet space on which you can put more items to "sell." So basically, the trick allows you to steal from Kecleon shops and get a lot of money. Any questions?
