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?
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 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. --- k
