Yes, im aware we have plenty of these threads, but can someone say which items are REALLY WORTH to transfer? Because i dont want to spend time obtaining them. I dont care about unique items which cant be found in the next game and are only available by transfering these items. If they have no use, then i dont want to transfer. I also not gonna transfer the Cell Key, Dragon Eye and Hermes Water.

I only care about items which unlocks something or are great to have. Most of the people advise to get some items in this game (because its easier to farm them here) instead of farming them in the second game. Anything like that?

Should i transfer the stat boosting items or should i use them in the first game?

There is a list made by Lancet Jades here:

https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/468548-golden-sun/49792149?page=1

So anything worth here to transfer?

So far i decided to send these over to TLA (correct me if they have no real use, but most people advise to bring these):

Gaia Blade
Kikuichimonji
Muramasa
Demon Mail
Thunder Crown
Cleric's Ring
Lure Cap
Warriors Helm
Elven Shirt
Mythril Shirt (4 of them?)
Hyper Boots (4 of them?)
Quick Boots
Feathered Robe
Orb of Force
Assassin Blade
Storm Gear
Mirrored Shield
Spiked Armor
Spirit Gloves
Asuras Armor
Swift Sword
Dragon Shield
Spirit Armlet
Righteous Mace
Adepts Helm
...

Thanks in advance.

Regarding things that would fit your criteria of being useful, there are some, of varying usefulness.

First, pretty much all weapons listed are inferior to end-game stuff in TLA. Only the Gaia Blade and maybe Kikuichimonji can really compare, but you'll generally have access to stuff with ~150 attack by the point in TLA where Isaac joins. Conversely, armor pretty much tops out at 40-50 defense, even in TLA, so anything in that range or close to it can still be useful in TLA.

Some armors that are useful:
-Asura's Armor (great HP regen)
-Warrior Helm (crit boost and earth power bonus)
-Spirit Armor (+15 to all four element resistances)
-Dragon Scales (high resist to water and fire)
-Storm Gear (high resist to all but earth)
-Elven Shirt (1.5x agility multiplier effect; very unique)
-Adept's Helm (1.2x max PP multiplier effect; also very unique)
-Lucky Cap (having both crit boost and PP regen together is unique)
-Fairy Ring (unique ring, but fairly useless effect)
-Cleric's Ring (unique ring, only way to make use of ANY cursed items, really)
-Lure Cap (completely unique effect)
-Water Jacket (high water/fire resist)
-Earth Shield (earth resistance and a mediocre HP recovery effect if used in battle)


Some things of note:
-The Gaia Blade, Warrior's Helm, and Spirit Armlet are the only three items in the entire two games that give a bonus to Earth power.

-Spirit Gloves (the GS version, NOT the ones from TLA) also give +5 to all four elements, which is the only gloves/shield slot item to boost all four elements, and one of two items to boost all four elements' power (the other is Planet Armor in TLA).

-The Water Jacket, Storm Gear, and Dragon Scales from GS are some of the best elemental resistance-boosting equipment available.

-Gaia Blade and Earth Shield are two of the only three items that give earth resistance in the two games, but the third (Luna Shield) gives better earth resist than the Earth Shield. Dragon Boots (TLA only) also give 10 earth resist (with fire and water too), and Spirit Armor and Cosmos Shield are all that resist all 4 elements (+15 and +20 to all, respectively).

-Except for the Hyper Boots, all critical rate boosting equipment found in GS is inferior to what is available in TLA, usually by a large margin.

-Don't bother too much with headgear, because you'll want a Crown of Glory on all the males in TLA (8 PP regen per turn) and Psychic Circlet on females (12 PP regen per turn). Those two items are totally amazing and broken.
Eclipsing power is, at times, not only the instrument of demons, but also of gods.
Lost, but not forgotten.
