suggestion - it's cheating.
quick save or save the game
mindread to see what they say - if the outcome is worth it [reward], then continue on
else restore the saved game.
Same rule applies to chests - some chests randomly generate a reward. you can quick save the game, open a chest, look at reward - if it's something you like, continue on. If it's not, restore save and keep trying until you find something you like.
