I don't see a thread about the errors in Ultimate Equipment, so here we are.
Maybe it is a bit early, but as I am making a new character, an Alchemist, this error jumped at me:
Ultimate Equipment Page.76: wrote:
In the APG it weight 5 lbs. 50 lbs can be more realistic but the playability of going around lugging a kit that weight as much as a full plate to be capable to use your class abilities seem a bit low.
Note that an Alchemist’s kit (one of the adventurer kits presented in the book), a kit that include "This kit includes an alchemy crafting kit, a backpack, a bedroll, a belt pouch, a flint and steel, ink, an inkpen, an iron pot, a mess kit, soap, torches (10), trail rations (5 days), and a waterskin." weight only 24 lbs.

I do think the error there is that the alchemy creation kit should indeed weigh 5 pounds, not 50 pounds -- it's a typo in the item entry. Because it's just a bunch of reagents, basically, and you need it for your class, I think 5 lbs is a fair weight (but not 50! :) ).
Another error (unless I am blind and not seeing it...)
Page 370, Table 7-13 Random Weapons is missing options for numbers 66-84. In other words, there's an entry for numbers ending at 65, and the item directly below it starts at rolling 85.
This is purely a layout/printing error, but if this sees a second printing you may want to fix this:
Page 124 - Under Adamantine Breastplate. There needs to be a break between the descriptive sentence and the header below it (Armor of Insults) -- currently the header is squished into the sentence.
And then under the Armor of Insults entry, there is an unnecessary break between its descriptive paragraph and the Construction Requirements section.
If you fix both--add the space where it's needed and remove it where it's not--it should not push anything off to the next column or page.
pg 98-99: a "Poor" stay at an inn is listed as 2 gp when it should be 2 sp. This is most obvious on Table 2-13.
The error on page 370 was mentioned during the blog previews and the missing items were re-listed in the comments.

Through a bit of serendipity though, this gives me a great idea for alchemical birdlime to help bring fliers down to earth. ...err...for my players to use...yea...

Any errors listed in the previews need to be repeated here so there's only one place to look for looking up errata. If you know of any others, please post them!
And thanks for pointing this out!
Shouldn't Bonebreaker GAUNTLETS be hand slot items, and not wrist slot?
Bracers of Falcon's Aim seem ridiculously cheap given that its a +3 skill, +1 tho hit ranged, and essentially Keen for bows, continuously. Scabbard of Keen Edges is 16,000 (vs. 4000 for this) and it only works 3 times a day for a few minutes each, and is a standard action to use.
Gauntlets of skill at arms...also wrist items? Again, I have no problem with these items or their slot, but these should be described as bracers or armbands or something, not gauntlets.
Here are the things I noticed in the previews.
Caster's Shield: Both instances of caster's shield should be italicized.
A minor issue (perhaps personal): Wearing a ring of inner fortitude ring does not make the...
This treasure is made up coins and small magic items, such as potions, scrolls, and wands.
pg. 387 - RPG Superstar listing
ancestral reliquary, iron collar of the unbound coven and clockwork conscience are listed as items that are published in this book - but are not actually in the book, except on the RPG Superstar credit page.
All of these are neck items...
I would ask that you take the earliest opportunity to put these items into print somewhere so these authors can not just get credit but be published in a Paizo product.
I concur, the Bracers of Falcon's Aim seem like one heck of a bargain and my two ranged players found it in the first 30 minutes of sifting through.
I suppose the real issue with the item is not the cost, the cost is appropriate for a 1st level spell I suppose, but the fact that Aspect of the Falcon is only a 1st level spell. Keen Edge is 3rd level (though it is 10 minutes per level) but Aspect of the Falcon gives Keen to bows, plus a bonus to hit and a skill bonus. Aspect of the falcon should be at minimum 2nd level if not 3rd.
These are from the latest preview.
she can teleport anywhere that spell's effect,
Fiery Nimbus Rod:
it takes and additional 1d10 fire damage.
Construction Requirements: fairy fire
Rod of Absorption:
Jar of Dragon Teeth:
and those 19 or more Hit Dice are affected as per form of the dragon III.
If the owner changes before all the teeth created by the jar are consumed, the original owner no longer gains benefit from this artifact.
Spell with a target of "you" generally are stronger than spells of the same level that can target anyone. When someone make a magic item based on those spells he should be extra careful with the price.
Even though now it has been in 2 Books, I am still calling this an Error in now Both UC and UE.
The Range for Double-Barreled Musket is set at 10 ft. it should be 40 ft.
Balance Question! The Shackles of Compliance have a DC 25 Will Save associated with it. With that, it would require a +14 to make these shackles. If I remember correctly, an item should *generally* be around a Will Save appropriate for a minimum required to cast the spell, which is an 11, or +0. At a Level 1 Spell, it should be DC 11, DC 12 or DC 13, don't you think?
On that same page, (274) The Shackles of Durance Vile has no Saving Throw DC.
Lastly, HeroLab pointed something out: The Shackles of Compliance are 2,810 GP in Skull and Shackles. The Shackles of Compliance in Ultimate Equipment are 3,280 GP. Which is it?

What is a +4 bonus to all poisons?
+4 to craft

I looked at all the kits, and for the most part, the weights seem off.
It seem a bit weird, but this is SKR explanation:

I fully agree with the "better packaged" part, less with the "pproximate middle value that would work for either size" but still that is the reasoning behind the weight of the kits.
Diego has the right of it. I think it would have been good to have a brief clause in the introduction to the section that the packages were re-weighted, as it is not as obvious as I think the devs think it was. Always hard with writing/gming/designing--often what you think must be clear is day is actually obscure.
But the "Alchemy Crafting Kit" (which is not one of the package kits, just part of another) is still mis-weighted at 50 lbs instead of 5.
Were they re-weighted? Has Paizo confirmed this?
Read Diego Rossi's post. He provides the Dev posts that explain the weights of the package kits.
p 137: Impact weapon property is listed as only applying to slashing and piercing weapons, when it should be listed as not being applicable to light weapons.
p 154: Earthenflail is listed as having the Shattering weapon property, which doesn't seem to exist.
p 43: The dragon pistol is listed as having a range of 20 feet, while page 45 lists it as having a 10 foot range when firing a bullet.
p .133 Winged Shield
usually it has italicized text stating the magic item
p. 154 DWARVEN THROWER
a little wordy
p. 157 Luck Blade
Luck blade (2 wishes) 102,660 GP
p. 160 Shifter's Sorrow
wouldn't this just be "+1/+1 silver two-bladed sword"?
p. 162 Sword Of Subtlety
"A +1 short sword with a thin, dull gray blade, this weapon provides a +4 bonus on its wielder’s attack and damage rolls when she makes a sneak attack with it."
p. 162 Sylvan Scimitar
"+3 scimitar" is not italicized in the description text.
If I am interpreting things correctly, not ever a +5 short sword -- for the purposes of determining stuff like damage reduction, it is still a +1 sword (a +5 weapon bypasses all kinds of DR that the +1 weapon does not). It is exactly what it says, a sword with a magical +1 enhancement bonus that grants an additional +4 to attack and damage when sneak attacking (but does not have the other properties of a +5 weapon). Maybe it would help if the additional bonus were typed (circumstance bonus, luck bonus).
If this were to be clarified, this is a Core Rulebook item so it would need to be clarified for that book as well as UE. I'm FAQing your post because of this.
On page 15, under the Masterwork Armor heading in the second paragraph, the spell Masterwork Transformation is referenced. The first sentence discusses using the spell for masterwork conversion of weapons, but this section is about armor and shields. Seems to me that this sentence should reference armor, not weapons. The referenced spell works on both.
What it looks like to me, is that a copy-paste was performed and wasn't cleaned up afterward.
p. 166 DUNGEON RING
Since the Price is "varies" shouldn't the Cost be "varies" too?
CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS COST 6,000 GP
p. 169 Ring Of Delayed Doom
"for each of its garnets that ha sbeen destroyed"
should be "has been"
p. 172 ring of protection +1
minor formatting- missing comma in price
Here's another one for the same item.
The delayed harmful effect occurs when the wearer falls unconscious, when the ring is removed, or 1 minute after the last time the ring’s power [is] activated;
And as long as we're quibbling... I would actually say "for each of its garnets that have been destroyed." Or maybe "for each garnet that has been destroyed." Yes, I understand antecedents; and when they're potentially vague, it's better to make them proximal. So, when choosing between "for each [of its garnets] that has been destroyed" and "for each of [its garnets that have been destroyed]", I would go with the latter.
p. 179 Liberator's Rod
text refers to item as "rod of liberty" twice and it is italicized giving the meaning that it is a named magic item.
as noted by someone else
Page 110, under Crafting poison: "If you have the poison use class feature, you do not risk accidentally poisoning yourself when applying poison."
Irrelevant as the paragraph is about crafting poison, not applying it.
How can BENEFICIAL BANDOLIER be a belt slot item while ENDLESS BANDOLIER be a chest slot item?
p. 238 Iron Cobra Gauntlet
minor type , weight says "1 Lb." should be "1 lb."
