After joining the Clerics faction in Elex (High-tech Allies quest) you receive the lowest rank, Acolyte. You can complete a few actions that will allow you to reach Legate rank. This is possible only if you speak with Reinhold and fulfil the following requirements:
- Jax needs to be at level 15 or higher.
- Complete An Acolyte's Pilgrimage quest for Balder.
- Complete A Good Debut quest for Martha.
- Learn the Clerics' ability – Suggestion.
- Have at least 1000 Elexit – promotion fee.
An Acolyte’s Pilgrimage
How to unlock this quest: Speak with Balder in The Hort.
Balder informs you that each Acolyte must go on a pilgrimage which means that you must visit four shrines in Ignadon. You can pray in each one of them and you can also donate 100 Elexit (the hero will feel better). During your pilgrimage you can come across many strong enemies, however, fighting with them isn't always required.
The first shrine is near the bridge that leads to The Hort's entrance (200XP).
The second shrine is west from The Hort and south from Hangar airport. You can find Screamers near the shrine but they are easy to eliminate. Armored Locust can be more problematic – lure it to a different place or attack after you deal with the Screamers (remember to block its attacks). After that you can approach the shrine (200XP).
The third shrine is south from the second, near one of the asphalt roads. There, you should find a group of thugs that stopped a Traveling Merchant. Wait for them to end the conversation and help the merchant in eliminating the bandits. Each defeated enemy gives you 100XP. After that you can speak with the merchant (provided that he is still alive) and examine the shrine (200XP).
The fourth shrine is east from the third and south from The Hort. A giant Mountain Troll may roam the area but you don't have to fight with it. Examine the shrine (100XP).
After that you can go back to Balder (1000XP).
A Good Debut
How to unlock this quest: Speak with Martha in The Hort.
Martha is responsible for preparing food supplies for people from The Hort. Speak with her and, after that, you must wait for her to prepare meals – the best way is to use one of the beds and select a different time of day. Martha gives you 4 Martha’s Protein Supplement Stew. You must deliver them to different people in the Clerics' city. Anna, Reinhold and Balder will take their supplies and won't cause you any additional problems. Xander may want to buy one meal from you if you have any left. He can give you 25 Elexit but you will anger Martha. After delivering all meals you can go back to the woman. The maximum number of experience that you can receive is 300XP (if everyone got their food supplies).
Warning – During your meeting with Balder you can have your knowledge tested (Knowledge is Power mini-quest). The correct answers are Calaan, Ulbricht and Arvid. You get 100XP and Plasma Rifle for passing the test.
Suggestion ability isn't connected to any of the quests. You must get it just like any other ability. Here are its requirements:
- At least 1 free skill point (you get them by reaching new levels)
- 500 Elexit
- Have at least 30 points in Intelligence
- Have at least 30 points in Cunning
When you meet these requirements, you can then go to Balder and pay for your training (the picture above). You can now go back to Reinhold and "test" your new ability on him. You will receive 200XP.
Reaching Legate rank
Complete all of the quests described above, unlock Suggestion and reach, at least, level 15. After that you can go to Reinhold and ask him to promote you to Legate rank. You must pay him 1,000. After that you receive 4000XP. The Armor Master now offers new Legate armor elements. You can also try to reach Regent rank – the description can be found on the next page.
