What is the Forgotten Grimoire?

Seen it in the bazaar after the mark, it cost a lot... so exactly before I buy it, what is it? No spoilers if it involves any...

No spoiler. It is something called a "monograph". It is a key-item. If you have it in your 'key items' list, then certain monsters have a chance of dropping rare loot. There are seven monographs all together. They're expensive and buying them is completely optional. But they're very much worth it, because those rare loot drops are necessary to make certain tricky bazaar recipes.

Oh thanks a lot. So will the first one help me? or will it only start to help me when I get later in the game? I'm sneaking into the castle as of now. And for the first one, which monsters drop what?

Wtf do you think *****s are for? Beating step-children? And why the hell is that word censored? - wyrmslayer1991

They're all good except for the one that costs 25000 gil. That only adds Electrum to any entite's drop pool, which is worthless really. It's used to make the bazaar package for Golden Axe but you could get the Scorpion Tail before that, thats if you're even using lol-worthy axes and hammers.
#6FraniumDB(Topic Creator)Posted 3/29/2009 11:44:09 AM
Ah okay, thanks for all of the help you guys.
#7SinisterSandmanPosted 3/30/2009 1:19:51 AM
When it says you have to talk to any (Magic) shop vendor so many times, does it mean shops that only sell (Magic) specifically, or just any person who happens to sell (Magic), even if they sell (Weapons/Armor/Sundries/Techniks/Gambits) as well?

it can't be a multi-category vendor, you have to go to a shop that has a big purple sign near its door and is marked on your map as a magick store.
