Apparently they decided to make Alvarez the only swordmaster in the game. The problem with this is that once you have all four artifacts, he doesn't give dialogue options. He just tells you to go defeat Mara.
I just got blades to 10 and now it's impossible for me to get the final blades skill. Any ideas to get around this? --- One footstep among many is silent. One footstep alone is deafening.
He stilled trained me while I had all four artifacts, but stopped once I talked with Steelbeard and learned the location of the water temple. After that, Alvarez would only say the loop about me being the last pirate and stopping Mara and what not. No more training. --- N3B was here -- [PDBA 4EVR] thenocturnalrambler.blogspot.com
