The following abilities let you reach these:

  • Artful Dodger grants Knightly Leap at level 2 which lets you jump like a chess knight
  • Psionics grants Psychokinetic Shove at level 2 which lets you push the item off that platform
  • Mathemagic grants Froda's Jump Discontinuity at level 1 which randomly teleports you a short distance, so it might take a while to get there. On level 5 you get Xeuclid's Translation a more expensive but non-random teleport.
  • Ley Lines grants Invisible Geometries at level 5. It lets you move in cardinal directions, but costs a ton of mana. This skill is especially useful in wizard builds.

The "Artful Dodger" branch grants the "Knightly Leap" trick at level 2 - lets you jump like a chess knight, and works for grabbing these. – DMA57361 Jul 18 '11 at 21:05
@DMA57361: Good call, I've edited it in. – CruelCow Jul 18 '11 at 21:42
I tried Artful Dodger, I don't know why but I cannot jump over it – Drake Jul 18 '11 at 22:07
@Drake, apparently this will be fixed in patch 1.0.3: – yatima2975 Jul 19 '11 at 22:30
Would Move in Mysterious Ways from the Burglery skill work? – Arkive Nov 30 '11 at 16:50

Use a concussion bomb.

You make it with the tinker kit, the recipe is something like:

1 × Gunpowder → Makeshift Bomb(s)
Does not require any Tinker skill (requires level 0).
Higher skill creates more bombs, up to a max of 6


2 × Makeshift Bomb → Concussion Bomb(s)
Requires Tinkerer Skill level 1 or higher.
Higher skill creates more bombs, up to a max of 3

There's lots of ways. Any effect that delivers knockback, from Ragnar's Meteor to Grey Heron Takes Flight to the aforementioned Concussion Bomb to Barometric Pulse Device to a carefully-arranged Handy Wand (have to hit a flying monster hovering on the water between you and the item) can do it. IIRC, you can even do it with Unliving Wall, which gives knockback so that monsters don't get trapped under it. :)

Any effect that allows you to teleport can do it (Knightly Leap is the fastest one you can get to in terms of leveling up). Even the more hardcore/obscure teleports like Rocket Jump can get there. It's not likely you'll ever do it with a blink, but it can be done.

Finally, you can grab it directly with Magical Law's Confiscate Evidence, which lets you pick stuff up from anywhere you can see it.
