Non-tradeable equipment can be permanently bought for 6 Seals each, with the exceptions of Gladius and Dragon Shield for 3 Seals each. Completing the initial quest gives you the "the Returned" title that gives the following bonuses: Max Damage + 10. Max Str +5. Max Int +5. Max Dex +5. Max Will +5.
The bulbs need to have 2 inches (5 cm.) of soil beneath them. Add some gravel to the bottom of the container to ensure the drainage of water. Gladiolus cannot sit in waterlogged soil. Again, if this should happen, the bulb will rot. Plant bulbs 3 to 6 inches (7.5 to 15 cm.) deep and 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.5 cm.) apart with the flat side down.
