Sir Sarles, or the Mace of Disruption
Since these ethical debates are popular, I'd like to pose one.
I generally get both the real and the fake illithium in the Sir Sarles quest, give him the fake stuff, then upgrade the Mace of Disruption. I figure spending all that coin on another worthless object for the church is pointless when that illithium can be used to pound the undead back into the ground.
However, it is the dishonest choice, and I am playing with a primarily good party (Jaheira being the sole neutral). In everyone's opinion, is the mace worth screwing the temple over? (There is also the slight matter of getting vastly less XP)
