(Shiren) Oh shit... a Melding Jar  at the Jar Shop!
Either I can sell some stuff and hope it's enough (The shop is kinda small, and most of my belongings are for the final trip) or try and steal it and die in the process.
Only two ways about this.
Used a change jar and going to get a sexy Razor Wind out of it.
Still in the town though.
Third Edit, went to the previous area and after nearly starving, went back to the shop and it's now a Melding Jar .
7500G and I only have 2476G, but it got me drooling.
So far I've yet to survive a steal attempt. If it wasn't for Izuna and Dark Spire I'd probably be playing Shiren more. Good luck on your run. *tips hat to fellow wanderer.* Some day we'll meet on the Plains of the Sun.
