    I'm having problems with this word. Right now, its translated as "Bargain" but the translation isnt good. if you've played FFTA2, you know what it is, right? Junk items that drops from treasures or monsters, that you can bring to the shop, combine the items and the shop will make a cool item for you to buy (WFT? You bring them all the material needed, and they still rob you of all your Gil, making you pay for it [​IMG] ).

    To be honest, I havent played too many FF games, so if there are other games using the same system, what is it translated as there? Suggestions welcome!

    Edit: My vote is for "Loot"

    edit 2: ffxii uses "Loot" it seems, so this is what we'll go with. Unless someone has a really good idea and can justify it [​IMG]

    If I remember, FF12 had a similar system. The shop was called a Bazaar I believe.

    @noitora:
    Not talking about the process, but the actual items you gather/get to use in this process

    From what I remember, they used to call it Treasure in the other FF games.

    Revenant Wings uses Treasure. Unless I've missed the point...

    Hmm from the classic use of Loot in many rpg's i'd have to go with loot.

    If you are talking about the stuff monsters drop, the term for that is "spoils" isn't it? I mean I used to call them drops, but thats more of a informal name. Loot is fine, but looting means stealing and you aren't stealing so much as killing and taking the so called "spoils of war".

    Definitely loot !
    All other words are not connected with the topc and irrelevant!

    Booty means the same but it´s crap!

    We will go with loot, as it both fits, used in other FF games, and is short so it easily fits into textboxes etc.
