Spoiler !!

Hi, in Act 3 I got stuck in this Encrypted manuscript quest. This is my second playthrough so I have created the sword before. The first playthrough I already got all the items,

On the second however, I seems to lack harpy egg/ Rotfiend tongue. I see there are rotfiends in the sewer and Harpies in the town /mountain I killed loads of them but couldn't get the item drop at all. Is it still possible to get the last ingredients?

I don't think so. All of the items have to be collected before hand.

Damn, this playthrough is so screwed. I probably accidentally use it for alchemy ingredients.

Yeah the only creatures you encounter in Act 3 are Bullvores and Gargoyles. The sword isn't that awesome anyways, unless you have Runes it isn't better than the weapon you get from the Operator.

that gave me an idea. I have a save before I respec (thus abandoning the Operator staff), so I could load than one up and kill him instead since my spec is might good anyway. What's operator staff spec? Does it have slots? I have more than enough money to put 3 fire runes in it.

It doesn't have slots, which is why I said unless you don't have runes it's better than the Manuscript weapon (which has slots). Operator Staff is a crit weapon, and thus unless you are built towards crit you may or may not like it.

I indeed build towards crit in swordmanship spec. I don't have choice anyway if i want to get the perfect save game for the next DLC/ expansion with best gears. Think I will go for it, can't be bother to replay the game just for sword. I loaded back to chapter 2 and I still didn't have that missing ingredients. Not gonna bother with it unless there is mod to summon weapon.

You can still get harpy eggs by killing the harpies outside the city along the mountain tracks.

You can get a rotfiend tongue by killing rotfiends in the sewer. I know this for a fact because I was in the same position as you. I just went down to the sewer, killed the 3 or so that spawn, left the sewer to meditate and reset them, then repeated until I got the tongue. It probably works the same for the harpies.
