Golden idol (spoiler)

#1galarzajhPosted 6/30/2012 9:49:34 AM
im doing this quest in which the armor vendor in the main city is asking for a idol of sorts. was just wondering if anyone could tell me where i can find a gold idol. i only have two bronze ones. is that what the quest requires or will something different happen if you get a gold one.

You can get it from the quest "Guard Duty" from Simone (Fournival's Manor, the house nearest to the castle's entrance).. the quest becomes available after Fournival's Trial (Main Quest).. pretty sure that he should be judged innocent to the quest to appear..

The quest tells you to escort Simone around the city.. It should be done perfectly or you'll just get a golden egg. Don't get too far from Simone.

1.) Hide n Seek.. she's at the Gran Soren Inn.. also fill up an empty flask with water near her hiding spot before proceeding.

2.) Fetch her a flask of water... just give her the water we got earlier.

3.) Race her to the gate.. Let her win but don't get too far...

Grabbing her results in an instant fail.

I've heard (haven't tried yet.) that you can also buy the golden idol from her later if you didn't already get it, but you have to (Spoilers for "Trials and Tribulations") prove Fournival guilty. Symone will be moved to the slums, and she'll sell you the Idol for 100,000.

But I'd recommend trying this as a last-resort only, since I can't confirm it and haven't seen anyone else confirm it...

Edit: And, no, you don't need to complete Trials and Tribulations to get the escort quest. You just need to complete his "Land of Opportunity" quest as soon as you can, and the Escort quest will be available around the time you can accept the Trials and Tribulations quest. This, I can confirm.

I remember this mission, and failing it is quite easy. I recommend finishing a quest to trigger a checkpoint save, THEN trying the escort mission. That way, if the game screws you with an autosave, just reload the last checkpoint.

There's no other way to get one that I've heard of. I could list how you get evidence for him and some ways to get it against him, but there's honestly no benefit to having him found guilty.

That is incorrect. You get the "Escort Duty" (not Guard Duty) quest pretty much right after you do your initial quest for Fournival (Land of Opportunity) where you are to get Jasper's family off of Fournival's property. You get this way before you even get to meet the Duke, which meeting is a requisite for the "Trials and Tribulations" quest..

You did something wrong on the quest, now you're gonna have to ask someone to gift you the idol.
