ricardo69 26/07/2011 12:07

when I kill the devil, in speaking with Merrill, the game crashes what do I do?

beatnik 27/04/2011 18:57

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^PLEASE DISREGARD THE ABOVE POST^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Although I realized he was waiting for me to watch him make an arrest. All is well except the below. Has anyone had a GREAT deal of difficulty getting into lord lovis's lair? Here is my problem just in case their are any spoilers ill still tag it. spoiler start I have tried both entrances the main Bridge way, in which you must jump from ledge to ledge then over the gate (i think) and then after trying that for a while I went the other way (the way described in this guide) in which you go up the side and then do one (LUCKY) jump (as if you miss the only place to go is down to the bottom and climb up again i find re loading faster). The bridge entrance i can never make it to the last ledge and IDK if i will make it past the gate after that either? The side entrance i always miss and land on the ledge below which is just a bit too low to jump up into the tower. Is their something that makes this easier? do you jump higher with certain stats????? I am level 7 and my stats are mostly in, int., vit.,m and spi, my str and dex are below 5 I believe. Maybe its my Dex?????? I hope i get it today as it is killing me all i need to do is this to move on but i can go do some side quests until either i figure it out or if someone can help i wish their was a way to open the gates as IMO this game engine does not excel in this type of thing just my opinion and everyone has one. spoiler stop TIA

beatnik 25/04/2011 22:50

I am playing on the Xbox 360 and though i find thier are differences in this guide from the game although thier is only one thing that has been bugging me. Maybe someone can help me? after my first encounter with captain rodney i cant find him and i need him to turn in several quests. The same goes for Richard After i gave him the first few goblin hearts. Below Where I am in the game is below but may spoil it for others so this is the warning but it may be needed to help me. Thanks!! spoiler start I first found richard (after you find him taunting the pig farmer) to turn in my goblin hearts he was pacing around Derks house) now i cant find him. Now i have Just completed the fight with the ghost and have yet made my way to the rendezvous. Captain Rodney on the other hand IDK where he went? i went to him in the barracks to turn Carl in (Danas husband) now carl is not in the dungeon but when i confronted Peavy for deserting he just showed up and arrested him. I also killed one of the monsters on the board The FIRST ONE the easy one LOL. So right now i have Danas love letter (i was going to give to her husband) and the one quest to turn into Rodney. I hope i get an answer as i am enjoying this game and i hope its not that buggy still? When I put the game in it did have a patch so it should have very little bugs left. Also so i dont yet understand the lore on this game who is actually the good guys the dragon knights or the slayers? spoiler stop

for go enter in temple Lovis, you get the key in the corpse. see screen:

Stilleto 13/02/2011 20:26

RE: Temple of Doom... no need to run around poisoned. Just follow the trail of blood/corpses killing the skellies as you go. You'll be briefly poisoned when you have to jump across the water, but it won't be nearly as bas as it is otherwise.

Xelian 27/11/2010 23:53

On the quest - For a Pound of Flesh if you decide to get Keane free you can get the password for Locke's cart and still get reward for the quest

Laetri 21/10/2010 18:12

@Nuckles: Thats cause you are still in the first phase of the game... after you becomes a dragon, yuou will be able to fly everywhere...

nuckles 09/09/2010 14:07

this rpg is so boring would have been better if they had kept the maps simple all i seem to do is walk even when i use the way stones also i find the quest boring

solochris 08/09/2010 23:08

forgot the 3rd thing i wanted to say, oops, on high and dry once peavy is in jail go visit him and do a mindread to find out he has stashed something behind the village telepoter, the bag seems to do a random generation as i have so far had a sword from it once and armour from it once. just thought i would add that.

solochris 08/09/2010 22:58

Ok 2 things to say, 1) "In to thin air" is a little side quest, you have to go to the foot of Loovis's tower (remeber the locked door next to the transpoter that you can't open) try to enter the door there and you get a bunch of undead critters to kill, you also find a very dead priest. there are 4 items hanging from the ceiling in the main chamber, there are to pedastools activate both to get steps to a hiden switch to lower the 4 items but you can only pick 1 (and no im not going to tell you waht they are other than a bow, a shield, a sord and a mace). 2) what the heck are the 3 talismans for? I have east, south and west (i think might have to double check if it was south or north) but no idea what they are for and why i try to use them my health drops to 10.....any help appreciated.

BigMamaUnicorn 24/08/2010 04:43

On the Pound of Flesh quest you can choose to help out the guard and he will give you the password to the cart so you don't have to mind read the cart to get it.

Le'Bron 22/08/2010 09:11

where is the talismen of the south i found the east and west in tthe cave but not the other one anyone know?

Lifolf 13/07/2010 19:03

The quest Vigor Mortis: where is the secret entrance, I just cannot find the dang thing. Any tips or guidance?

Rouster 12/06/2010 19:27

Response to "In Thin Air" question: after getting the quest and reading the note on the altar you need to go back to lord lovis's tower. At the bottom of it near the portal was a door that up until this point was locked. You can no go inside where you will battle a few creaturs and find the priest's body thus completing the quest. Hope that helps!

Saxxan 08/05/2010 11:51

"A GUILD WITHOUT A MASTER" is a side quest that doesn't seem to be mentioned here. You talk to Guidmaster Williams at the top of the tower in the mine (Map M2, Williams is "16") and then have to escort him to safety through a lot of L27 Black Ring enemies. Any tips or help on this one appreciated! I am finding it a struggle as the stupid GuidMaster will not stay out of the fight! LOL!

mjcone 01/05/2010 02:17

Do not fight Richard in the Famine Quest! He is very tough. If you survive, you'll be rewarded with the message that you failed the quest. And his loot was disappointing.

BigMamaUnicorn 27/04/2010 03:11

To Prankster55 To complete that quest you have to use the Lake Shrine and go into the Citadel Dungeon! Your Welcome in advance..... Nickie

Yrth 12/04/2010 19:30

For the Feast or Famine quest, there is an option aside from killing them or bribing them. If you mind-read Lomax, you will find out that he's pining for Elizabeth back in the village. Tell him you overheard her pining for him, and he'll cart his men off to the village.
