@Gogo: Not much in the way of "unique" stuff, no. Although there's some stuff that you get a decent bit earlier than the first chance to buy it. Bosses are an exception of course, as always. But there are a good chunk of regular mobs that, if you steal past the easiest slot or two (which generally contain potions and such), you may be surprised at what you can get. Sometimes it could be as simple as an Elixir, or as good as getting pieces of a gear set that's still a couple towns away from being buyable.
@Panzer: I don't remember how, but Bandanas are still easy to acquire early in this game. I've had them for quite a long time, but I don't remember where I got them. Other stuff though, as I said to Gogo, it's much more worthwhile in this hack to steal from regular mobs, because you can get stuff early on that's actually useful. Would love to see a list, but I'm actually enjoying having no idea what I may end up stealing next. Sometimes I find something cool, and sometimes I get crap for all my effort. But either way, it's definitely one of many good aspects of this hack.
