Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer[edit | edit source]

In this game, the amount of Gitan Shiren was carrying at the end of an adventure will be reduced to zero upon returning to Canyon Hamlet. This can be avoided by storing bags of Gitan as spaces in the inventory. Additionally, this does not apply when backtracking from Old Cedar Road (Table Mountain) to Canyon Hamlet, though.

  • Fay's Puzzles #47/50: Money Toss states the damage of a Gitan bag is value/10, rounded down and does not take defensive power into account.
  • Piles of Gitan can be placed into a Strengthening Jar to increase the amount inside. It will increase by 10% each time you go down a floor, up to a max of 9,999.
  • Further strategies are detailed at Fun with Gitan.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The only way to put genuinely a pile of Gitan inside a jar or throw a pile of Gitan is to hold B while walking over it, thus preventing you from picking it up. Then, use Underfoot commands to manipulate it.
    • Monsters disguised as Gitan can be picked up normally like other items.
  • Monsters of the Pickpocket family seek out and steal Gitan. If Shiren isn't nearby, they will stand on piles of Gitan, and will steal Shiren's.
