This doesn’t need to be your first upgrade, but it’s a massive money maker, especially with sleight of hand. Rogues can run through money quickly. With sleight of hand, this is going to earn you potentially six bucks, or just refund you more easily with Gregory and hard knocks(4). A solid moneymaker for most clue seeking agility rogues.
Item. Tool. Illicit.
Uses (6 supplies).
Spend 1 supply: Investigate. For this investigation, you may use instead of , and you get +1 skill value. If you succeed, gain 1 resource (2 resources instead if you succeed by 2 or more).
I think this is a garbage upgrade. Thieve's Kit lvl 0 is amazing. In many builds, it is 7 actions to get 3 resources and six clue - or at least a test with a FAR higher likelihood to do that.
Spend three XP and it nets you ~ probably ~ 3 resources and maybe a saved clue test?
Huh. Not that bad actually.
I suppose my hesitation is 6 XP for 2 cards is a lot in Green, with many XP Hungry cards.
Then again; 3 resources and maybe a saved clue test. A Emergency Chache and a deduction. That's pretty darn good?
I think the issue with the card is its Boring. It's expensive for a consistent, undeniably beneficial reward, but... so does the lvl 0 version.
I wanna spend my XP on fun cards like The Black Fan, The Red Clock, and Chuck Fergus.
Thieve's Kit lvl 3 is garbage.
