    1. Introduction
    Thanks for choosing to use my guide Eragon is a great game. At first, when the 
    movie was coming out (there was an ad at the movies), I thought, 'this CANNOT 
    be Eragon, the one I'm reading.' turns out it was. Soon enough the Eragon game 
    was out, and I was reading Eldest. The first thing that convinced me it was the 
    Eragon was an ad on Neopets. I NEEDED to see the ad now. I looked on the 
    internet, took too long to load... Sorry. Sorta got a bit carried away with the 
    story. Lets get on with it, shall we?
    1a. Storyline
    Eragon is about a 15 (turning 16) year old boy who lives on a farm with his 
    cousin, Roran, and his uncle, Garrow. One day while hunting, Eragon finds a 
    polished blue stone which he takes into Carvahall (his home town) for meat. 
    When Katrina, Roran's girlfriend buys Eragon meat... wait, don't worry 'buot 
    that part. It isn't important. Oneday, the stone hacthes into a baby dragon 
    which he names Saphira. A couple of days later, some mysterious creatures, 
    called the Ra'zac (pronounced Razac) burn down the farm with Garrow in it. 
    Eragon then sets out on an adventure with Brom, the storyteller, to get his 
    revenge on the Ra'zac. To Be CoNtInUeD!!!

    NOW time for the good part. Do you know how LONG that took? About 20-30 minutes 
    including breaks.
     Before you play a movie clip will play including urgals, Durza and Arya. You 
    can skip this, how ever.
    A list of moves will come up. Why do I nbother wasting my time to write down 
    Explore the dangerous wilderness called the Spine.
    Find someone to buy the blue stone.
    1. Wolves
    Press SELECT or the map icon on the touch screen to get up the map. The ring is 
    where Eragon has to go. The ring with the circle is where Eragon started. The 
    green arrow is Eragon. Any red or purple spots or squares are enemies. Make 
    sure you kill them so you can get bow and dagger points up. For now, head to 
    the ring!
    Head through the path towards your first objective, hitting any bushes in your 
    path. Once the deer runs off, the screen (top) will have writing PAY ATTENTION 
    TO THIS WRITING! Sometimes it is very important. Now slash any bush in your 
    path, except the dark green bushes, which are impossible to slash down. Once 
    you find the path, keep following it. The deer will run off. Jump up the 
    ledges, then proceed, cutting any bush. Around the corner shall appear a wolf, 
    which you obviously must kill, so kill it before it kills you by using X and Y. 
    Remember that X is strong and slow, whilst Y is weak and fast. Choose wisely! 
    Remember to shield yourself using R and target with L to make it easier. After 
    defeating it proceed. Pick up the green thing, which is a herb. It tells you a 
    bit more about it on the top screen. It should teach you how to draw the 
    symbol, so draw over the symbol twice. Hack through the bushes. If you lost any 
    health while trying to kill the wolf, then pick up the herbs from the bushes. 
    These are small herbs, which replenish health, but cannot be picked up to use 
    later. Jump down and go close to the edge of the gap. On the other side is the 
    deer. Shoot her with an arrow. From that side that you are already on. Make 
    sure you lock on. The deer will run away, and a movie clip will play with an 
    egg. Double jump over the gap, and some wolves will appear. Obviously kill 
    them, and move on. Some more wolves will appear, so kill them. If you go right 
    before the ledge, there will be some arrows. Pick them up. Go into bow mode. 
    Notice the bushes at the top of the ledge? Shoot them. This will make the 
    bushes disapear. Notice the blue object? Interact with it by pressing A. Go 
    back to Carvahall, either following the path back or going the easier way, 
    which is located by the ring. But, before that, kill the wolves. No need to 
    save at the dragonhead statue, the game will autosave.
    b. Carvahall
    Find someone to buy the blue stone.
    Complete the Carvahall Quickfind Quest.
    Bring the meat back home to Garrow.
    Make sure the stone is safe and undisturbed.
    Find Sloan (The house with the ring) to sell the blue stone to him. But, before 
    you go near there, there is a quest to be completed. Mirbell will set a 
    location where you have to find the mystery item. It will be near the well. 
    Make a right turn at the well. The prize is art for your gallery, Arya 
    Ambushed. Now go to Sloan. His house is the closest to the well when you go 
    straight forward before making the right turn. Enter the house, and talk to 
    Sloan. Eragon will start talking to Sloan, starting a conversation. The 
    conversation will turn into an argument. His daughter, Katrina, will give you 
    some meat. Now you must go back to the farm and give the meat to Garrow. Just 
    make sure it's not Roran. Garrow's the almost bald one. Talking to Garrow will 
    start a conversation between all three of you. Time to go into the barn to hide 
    the stone. Hide it in the loft (The upstairs. Make sure it's at the very back, 
    and don't make the same mistake I did of not searching for a way through.). 
    After placing it in the loft, Eragon will realise it's an egg, and it'll start 
    hacthing. The hacthling is a baby dragon. In the next clip, It will show the 
    gedwey Ignasia (Gedway Ignasia, just so you know the pronunciation.) Head into 
    the woods. Tell you what would be really funny? Talking to someone with the 
    dragon in your hands. Too bad you can't walk right past Roran. 
    Find something you can use to build a shelter for the dragon.
    Shoot squirells to feed the dragon.
    The game will autosave, and Eragon will place down the baby dragon. Time to 
    search for sticks. Don't worry, they're easy to find. All of them are almost in 
    one whole path, just to make it easy. After gathering all the sticks, go back 
    to the baby dragon. Eragon will start making a shelter. Time to make better use 
    of your bow. It's time to shoot some squirrels! Near the shelter will be some 
    arrows, which keep coming back, so fill your quiver to the max (50). Remember 
    to lock on while in bow and arrow mode. Turn around the first corner. There you 
    will find some more art, Alagaesia (Alagayseea) Map. After collecting, shoot 
    some more squirrels. Time to talk telepathically to the dragon. The 
    instructions are simple; Draw the symbols that appear on the lower screen.
    b. Carvahall
    Find your cousin, Roran.
    Follow Brom into the tavern.
    Find 10 beads for Romar.
    Go home for the night.
    Complete the Carvahall Challenge Course.
    Now walk out of the woods, into Carvahall. Time to find Roran. So walk around 
    (or simply look on the map) until you find Roran and Katrina. When you find 
    them, talk to Roran. After they walk away, follow Brom into the tavern. I think 
    they copied most of this story from the movie. It's faintly coming back... But 
    who cares! This is a walkthrough, not a movie review! After leaving the tavern, 
    Eragon will want to know more about dragons. After Brom walks away, go home. 
    But there are two quests I want you to do first. First go to the back of 
    Carvahall, the part that's blocked off by a wagon. Talk to the man with a hat 
    on. He will want you to gather his beads. Start with the one closest to the 
    tent, then go in a path from there, or you could look at the map. I was stupid 
    the first time and missed the one closest to the tent. Only after I finished 
    the game did I find it. A movie clip will start when you walk on to get the 
    fourth bead. Sloan will be in the house with two mysterious figures. One is 
    named Durza, a shade. A mysterious figure will kill Sloan. For you people who 
    don't like that sort of stuff, you don't have to wacth it. Too bad for the 
    people who do. Now urgals will be all over town, but continue gathering beads. 
    Before you can gather all the beads, Saphira will pick you up. Another mini 
    game. This one's harder; you have to control the dragon and fly through hoops. 
    After the mini game, you will arrive at the burnt down farm. You can go back 
    into Carvahall to complete the quests, so gather those beads. The Spine Concept 
    Art is now available near Mirbell. Dragon Tower Concept Art is also near the 
    burnt down farm. After gathering all the beads, go back to Romar. He will give 
    you the House Interior Concept Art. Now Fae has a challenge course for you. You 
    must go through every ring in the time limit. Don't worry, every ring you go 
    through adds to your time. After you finish, you will recieve a large herb. If 
    you have not completed the game, your reward will be a weapon book, which will 
    add points onto your dagger's experience. After completing the course, go back 
    to Fae and Romar, and through the exit.
    d. Palancar Valley
    Find your way through the forest and go to Therinsford.
    Complete the Palancar Valley Challenge Course.
    1. Urgals
    Talk to the man on the left of the entrance. You must complete the challenge 
    course, just like in Carvahall. On the way, you will find a Spine Concept Art. 
    Your gift is a weapon book, and once again points go onto your dagger. Now, 
    killing the urgals, go towards your destination. An easier way is to go towards 
    the ring from where you are, seeming it is closer. After reaching your 
    destination, Eragon will start talking to Brom, asking him what a shade is. 
    Well, if you're paying attention to what Eragon and Brom are saying, you will 
    see the name of the thing that killed Sloan- a Ra'zac.
    e. Forest
    Find your way through the forest and go to Therinsford
    Find 12 urgal sashes for Bava
    1. Urgals
    2. Urgal Archers
    3. Wolves
    4. Kull (Giant Urgals)
    Kill the urgals, which will come to you. Take the path to your left. A girl 
    will want you to kill the two kull in front of her. Now talk to her. Bava wants 
    you to find twelve urgal sashes, then she'll open the bridge for you. Now when 
    you get out of the alcove, keep going straight ahead, killing any enemies in 
    your path, and collecting any sashes you find from killing the urgals. You may 
    want to start using your bow and arrows, to get the experience up. Remeber when 
    using your bow to stand so the enemy cannot see you. When you jump down the 
    ledges, an urgal and wolf will ambush you, so defeat them before you move on. 
    Slash the bush in the bottom right corner to find ruby essence, then keep on 
    going. At the waterfall, you must make two turns, killing the urgals and 
    collecting their sashes. When you go further, the road will close, and some 
    urgals will appear, so kill them to proceed. You will find one urgal and two 
    wolves, so defeat them and move on. When you move near the river, a gate will 
    create an arena, where you must defeat some urgals and archers. After killing 
    the enemies, an urgal with a vulture will come, and you must kill both. It is 
    best to kill the vulture first. There should also be another urgal, but no 
    vulture. This one is in the river. You should start saving up your arrows now. 
    When you arrive at the bridge with the waterfall, jump up to where the 
    dragonhead statue is. Save your game, and go to the right. There should be a 
    Dragon tooth, which raises your health when three have been collected. Continue 
    on the adventure now. After killing all the enemies (you should always kill 
    archers first in groups like that,), slash all the bushes in the next area, one 
    should have cobalt essence underneath. In the next area, turn to your right 
    when you enter. One bush should have cobalt essence underneath. After you 
    collect your twelth sash, Bava will open the bridge for you, so go that way, 
    because that's the only way I'm going to do this walkthrough for now. Trust me, 
    Eragon might have to walk a long way back, but it's a shortcut. If you see any 
    enemies while walking up to the bridge, don't worry about killing them, unless 
    you want to. If you haven't noticed this guide does not cover any sword or 
    dagger techniques. When you're about half way, collect the Forest Concept Art. 
    When you walk off the bridge, pause your game to read this. Eragon will 
    manually walk, and a boss will come down. Hop up onto a ledge and shoot him 
    with arrows until you have nothing left, so start using the dagger. Dodge all 
    of his attacks. And by dodge I mean walk out of the way... no RUN! Run out of 
    the way. Keep repeating until you kill the kull. Remember to use X attacks. 
    After you kill the kull, Brom will ask Eragon if he's thought of a name for the 
    dragon. He will call her Saphira, wacth out, another different meaning to add 
    on to the big list of the 'Eragon Calling the Dragon Saphira List'. This time 
    it's because of her Sapphire eyes.After defeating the kull, you should find a 
    House Interior Concept. After the mind touch mini game, go through the exit to 
    the Rocky Pass. 
    f. Rocky Pass
    Make your way across the Rocky Pass, and towards Daret.
    1. Urgals
    Kill all the urgals in your path, using your bow this time as well as your 
    dagger. Talk to the man you see walking on the path. He has hidden an object in 
    Therinsford. Don't kill any of the urgals.
    g. Therinsford
    Make your way across the Rocky Pass, and towards Daret.
    Complete the Therinsford Quickfind Quest.
    Find 12 mugs for Lutgar. 
    When you enter Therinsford, Keep on walking until you find a barn, and turn 
    right. You should see Roran and his girlfriend, Katrina. After the scene, keep 
    walking in the same direction. You should find a weapon book. Go back to the 
    first barn, then turn right. After crossing the bridge, turn at the first 
    right. Someone stole his twelve best mugs, so you have to find them. The first 
    one is on the bridge. The next one is near the dragonhead statue. Now go back 
    into Therinsford for the next one. Go back across the bridge. The next one is 
    near a house. Then from there, go diagonall to find the next one. It's close to 
    the water. For the other eight, you must go out of Therinsford.
    f. Rocky Pass
    Make your way across the rocky pass, and towards Daret.
    Find 12 mugs for Lutgar.
    Complete the Therinsford Quickfind Quest.
    1. Urgals
    2. Urgal archers
    3. Kull
    Kill the urgal and archer. Kill the archer with your bow and arrows, and defeat 
    the urgal with your dagger. On the way you should find Forest Concept Art, then 
    defeat the urgals. The next mug is near the man. After you collect it, talk to 
    the man. He has hidden an item near the big log you had to jump over. Don't go 
    through town. Go across the river. If you don't do this, you will lose like I 
    always used to. There is a certain part of the river you have to cross at, 
    though. On the way you should find a mug. Take a shortcut at the intersection. 
    Remember not to kill any urgals. Near the log is another mug. The prize is 
    Desert Concept Art. Only five more mugs to find. I purposely left one out so 
    you didn't waste time in the Quickfind Quest. Near the intersection is another 
    mug. At the first pine cone tree near the river, turn right. Ok, we haven't 
    found all the mugs yet, but we can continue another time, unless you want to go 
    on the quest without my help. Do as Saphira says, and stand on the Saphira 
    symbol and press A. She will swoop out of the sky and destroy the rocks, 
    revealing a cobalt essence underneath. Just one more dragon tooth for 40 more 
    health points! Take the left path. Kill the kull. You should find Urgal Scout 
    Study, then kill the kull. Ok, wrong way. Not a great loss of time, though. 
    This time, from where I told you to take the left path. Take the forwards path. 
    If your standing at the intersection, confused, it's the left path. Defeat the 
    kull, and proceed. Call Saphira to destroy the rocks, and collect the Ruby 
    Essence. This whole time I've been calling it Cobalt essence. Please now refer 
    to it as ruby essence, 'coz I'm not fixing up all those mistakes. Wacth out, 
    the next ledge is narrow. If you fall down, you'll have to get back up there. 
    On the other side, there are archers, so hasten to the other side. Defeat the 
    two kull and the archer. Again, call Saphira and collect the ruby essence. If 
    you talk to the man, your taking up a challenge even I can't do, and I've 
    completed the game. After defeating the kull, do a double jump across the gap. 
    Cross the bridge, defeat the archers, and collect the large herb. If it's your 
    first time, it's VERY hard to draw. After collecting the ruby essence, you 
    might want to save to save your game. Take the path to your right. When you 
    reach the path where the rocks seperate it, take the right course. Kill the 
    kull and archer, then proceed. Jump up onto the ledge. Take the right path. 
    Defeat the archer and whatever other enemy appears there. The swicth lowers a 
    gate. You must find the other one, so head back down. Now head forward. Defeat 
    the archers, and hit the swicth. Now go to the gate. If you fall down, taking 
    the correct course, you will find NPC Concept Art. And don't even ask me what 
    it is, 'coz I don't know. Time for a boss. A kull with swords. Use the same 
    tactics we did as in the forest. This time dodge the birds, and just attack the
