Pathfinder - How to Play 5.3 - Other Equipment

In addition to weapons and armor, adventurers rely on a whole bunch of other important items which help them get by in the world. Each base class (excluding the "Hybrid Classes" in Ultimate Class Guide because it was published after Ultimate Equipment) has a class kit which includes some good items for a member of that class to start with. I strongly encourage players, especially new ones, to take their class kit. If you don't like your class's kit, consider the Dungeoneering Kit or Pathfinder's kit instead.

The full list of available adventuring gear is available on the Adventuring Gear page under Ultimate Equipment on the Pathfinder SRD. Here are some important items which many adventurers will want to carry:

Tools and Skill Kits

Many skills require, or at least benefit from, an accompanying item. The full list of Tools and Skill Kits is available on the Tools and Skill Kits page under Ultimate Equipment on the Pathfinder SRD. Here are some important items which many adventuring parties will want to carry:

Livestock

Sometimes you need something to ride, or something to carry your gear. Sometimes you just want a pet. The full list of Animals and related items is available on the Animals, Mounts, and Related Gear page under Ultimate Equipment on the Pathfinder SRD. Here are some examples of common and useful livestock:

Selling items

Items which adventurers can't use or no longer need are often sold at market. Unless the item is an art item (such as a fancy painting) or a gem, items are sold at half of their value.

Sharing Loot

It's generally accepted that each member of the party gets an equal share of the loot. This ensures that everyone has decent equipment, so everyone is a functional and contributing member of the party.

Complications arise when someone wants to keep some of the items which the party acquired. When this happens, I like to point people to Quartermancer, a handy tool I built to help fairly share loot.

Magic Items

Magic items will be covered later in this guide.
