Introduction ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~0= 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 -------------0= 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!!! 2.

Do you know how LONG that took? About 20-30 minutes including breaks. a.Spine 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 attacks? QUESTS HUNT IN THE SPINE Explore the dangerous wilderness called the Spine. SELL THE STONE Find someone to buy the blue stone. ENEMIES 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 QUESTS SELL THE STONE Find someone to buy the blue stone. MIRBELL'S QUICK FIND QUEST Complete the Carvahall Quickfind Quest. RETURN HOME WITH THE MEAT Bring the meat back home to Garrow. HIDE THE STONE IN THE BARN Make sure the stone is safe and undisturbed. ENEMIES None 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. c.Woods QUESTS GATHER STICKS IN THE WOODS Find something you can use to build a shelter for the dragon. GATHER SQUIRRELS Shoot squirells to feed the dragon. ENEMIES None 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 QUESTS FIND RORAN Find your cousin, Roran. FOLLOW BROM Follow Brom into the tavern. ROMAR'S GATHERING QUEST Find 10 beads for Romar. GO HOME Go home for the night. GYPSY FAE'S CHALLENGE COURSE Complete the Carvahall Challenge Course. ENEMIES None 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 QUESTS ON TO THERINSFORD Find your way through the forest and go to Therinsford. OTHO's CHALLENGE COURSE Complete the Palancar Valley Challenge Course. ENEMIES 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 QUESTS ON TO THERINSFORD Find your way through the forest and go to Therinsford BAVA'S GATHERING QUEST Find 12 urgal sashes for Bava ENEMIES 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 QUESTS THROUGH THE PASS Make your way across the Rocky Pass, and towards Daret. ENEMIES 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 QUESTS THROUGH THE PASS Make your way across the Rocky Pass, and towards Daret. OSWYN'S QUICKFIND QUEST Complete the Therinsford Quickfind Quest. LUTGAR'S GATHERING 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 QUESTS THROUGH THE PASS Make your way across the rocky pass, and towards Daret. LUTGAR'S GATHERING QUEST Find 12 mugs for Lutgar. ATRIS' QUICKFIND QUEST Complete the Therinsford Quickfind Quest. ENEMIES 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 kull.
