BlackDeath: She finished the Axe of Stone quest before I did, and gave me all the information for it. ------------------ A Little About Me ------------------ I decided to add this section because of several questions that I have received about me. Mostly it has been where am I and what do I do. Well, here is a bit about me. I am currently living in Hampton, VA. For those of you that are outside the United States, I'm in Virginia. I work full time in the United States Air Force. Just recently I had my first child. She is absolutely the biggest blessing of my life. Her name is Aurora McKaille (McKaille is her middle name). She was born on 11 September. Well, other than that, life is grand. ---------------- Version History ---------------- 10.14.02: The FAQ is born! 10.22.02: I've added a bit more info to the quests section and I have also added more to the teleporters. There is now more, in-depth information about potion making. I have also done some reformatting to make it a bit more user friendly. 10.27.02: Just added more information, nothing big. 11.08.02: Big update. Sorry it has been so long. Between a full time job and a two month old, time has been in short supply lately. 11.26.02: Yeah, I know, it's been awhile. I just added a few more quests. ----------- The Quests ----------- The following information is only the quests and how to solve them. Since this game is, for the most part, open-ended, there is really no way to write a 'walkthrough.' The quests that I have all the information for are listed first; otherwise, they are in alphabetical order. All the quests are with their game title and information. Not all of them are complete, but as I get more information, I will update the FAQ. Also, a quick and easy way to find a specific quest, hit CTRL-F. In the window type the name of the quest or a keyword or two and hit enter. If you have any information to add, just drop me an email. These are the quests with complete information...

Devine Artifacts - Dagger: Book in Thieves Guild - Amulet: Amulet in the Elven Ruins at Dark Forrest, where you solve the urn quest - Sword: in Iona's dungeon, chamber of illusions. In the near of that room is a candle, a pentagram and a skeleton. Put out the candle and the wall will disappear. You have to sacrifice the 3 pieces to get the holy weapon. The entry to the cave can be found northwest from the graveyard teleporter or north and slightly to the east from the church. There is a little group of trees and bushes. The entry is hidden in there. Go down and DON'T, I repeat don't, open the sarcophagus. Place yourself in the right blue circle and click on the statue. Save before sacrificing and reload until you get the weapon you want. Treasure cave/ Silver Armor - The 1st map is in a spider hole (near the elves teleporter) - The 2nd map you get from 'Mpenzak' in Verdistis. - The 3rd map in the sewers of Verdistis in the northeast within a corpse. - The 4th map is in the hall of the dwarfs (near the entry to the mines is a small prison - you need lock pick level 4 to open the door). The armor itself is found in the Stalker cave, get the quest first from an old hermit standing somewhat south of the urn collectors in the Dark Forest. The Treasure cave is in the Northwest corner of the Dark Forest, near the mountains, hidden under trees. Go to each cove (2nd one) and press the ALT key or move the mouse slowly over bushes and trees. If you've found it, look for 3 crystals laid in blue bowls. Collect them (drag and drop to your inventory) and go south in this dungeon to an empty grey bowl, put them in (one by one) and proceed through the new opening. In next area just place one of your teleporter stones (very important) near the chests, put your loot in them. And leave a teleporter stone since there is no way to return, because the teleporter in the Easter egg area does not function. Make sure you have this in your inventory: - Silver Armor - Stack of 5 Ale from Rimmer - Exactly 2002 Gold - 4 ropes (the ones in that same cave) Use the ropes on the prisons when you have opened them up. You have to use those ropes on the trapdoors in order to proceed under earth. You're warned about some imprisoned monsters. If you go there, kill all those "bugs" and talk to Sven later on, he will thank and reward you. Dragon Set - The belt is in an abandoned house of Verdistis. The house should be to the WEST of the town. When you get inside and walk towards the hatch, the floor will break and you'll land in the basement. - The shield is in the armory of the Stormfist castle. If you were already kicked out, approach the entrance, and fling your pyramid through the entrance and you'll be able to visit the castle again (just avoid making a mess because this seems to be an exploit and not something intended). - The gloves are in one of the burial pyres in the Elves Burial to the south. keep looking out for a selectable pyre cuz it's the only one that has anything inside. - The quest to get the armor is given to you by the dwarf king. To enable it you MUST bring a note from the caves (same caves where you get the ax) that proves the king brother's guilt (it's a study in the very north east corner of the caves). It's hard to get because you must defeat an extremely tough wizard to get there. When you are about to enter the throne room, you might need to use the fling trick (just throw the note inside the room and pick it up after the checkpoint) to get the note past the checkpoint where the guards take all your stuff away temporarily. After you talk about the note's subject, the king will tell you that you need to get the armor and the dragon heart. If you complete the Axe quest by giving it to the king you get the armor quest. If you complete the axe quest by taking it back to the town yourself and talking to that priestly type you don't get the armor quest! Armor: go to Sir Patrick at Verdistis and after you ask him, he'll send you on a simple and quick errand (be sure to have 2500 gold handy). Dragon heart: This is another tough one. Go to the warrior's guild and ask for admission. After the first quest, you'll be sent to retrieve it. I hope you didn't kill the dragon rider in the imp's castle before the quest was given. After you have both, just go to the dwarfs' smith at the halls and after a day's work hell have the plate ready. - Show the restored dragon armor to the dwarf king (get it through the checkpoint) and you'll get the helm. ------- Skills ------- This is even more stuff that was given to me by SpiderDude. Also, throughout the game, there are several spell books laying about. I would like a list of all the books and their locations. If anyone has this information or even part of it, I would like to have it. Naturally, anyone that provides me information will get full credit. Free Skills: - Trader's Tongue: In the blue boar inn at the bar you will find a man named EL'GAMMON. If you talk to him he will try to sell you useless goods. Buy all of them until he doesn't have any left and then talk to him again. - Trader's Tongue: 3 books in the Merchant guild library. 1st book, bottom left-hand room, middle table. 2nd book, on top of bookshelf in north part of same room. 3rd book, northwest door, behind one of the covered chairs near the north wall. - Identify item: gained from doing the broken wheel quest for the stuck cart drivers. - Alchemy: do easy quest for the alchemist in the dark forest. - Restoration: learn from Goemoe in Aleroth after you heal both sick soldiers and learn from the statue in Nericon's garden after answering its riddles. - Lock pick: learn from Rob after joining thieves' guild - Lock pick: talk to the guy in the thieves' guild base, take him on the bet, and unlock four doors, which requires you have 4 lock pick. Talk to him again, and he is impressed, and will teach you one level of lock pick, so you can open the last and fifth door which needs 5 - Aura of command: side with the bees when you go to retrieve the imp council member. - Demon summoning: Summoner in Verdistis. - Bless: Save the kid from Vampire in the Dark Cave, then help Knight fighting Trolls. - Restoration: Tell Mardeneus who killed George and why. Essential Warrior Skills: - Weapons skill: Just the weapon you want to have - Lock pick: Level 3 max since u get 2 in game at thieves guild - Magic shield: Adds 5 to all resistances per every point spent on t. - Spirit Damage: Adds a 100% chance of inflicting 20-30 spirit damage at 5th level. - Augment Dam: Adds - Freeze: Adds - Alchemy: Don't put a point in alchemy. The alchemist in the dark forest main map will teach you alchemy as a reward - Enchant weapon!!!!!!!! - Restoration: no more then 2 since you get the other 3 from quests Essential Mage Skills: - Rats: One of the most underrated skills. Their magical property that they force the enemy to attack them will save you many times, and when playing with the wizard, they have the additional nice property that you can swap locations with them. - Monster identification, too. It saves lots of mana seeing their resistances at level 5 - Deadly Discs: works wonders in crowded areas - Magic Shield - Normal Shield Essential Survivor Skills: - Deadly gift: especially the scorpion traps are amazing at higher levels - Wisdom: for extra experience and faster advancement -------- Potions -------- To make a potion, you need alchemy skill of at least 2. Walk up to a patch of mushrooms or herbs. Open your inventory up. Drag a flask over the herb/mushroom until it blinks. Then unclick the flask and voila instant potion! Herbs: Purple = Healing White = Stamina Blue = Magic Mushrooms: Red = Healing Blue = Magic White = Poison Orange = Stamina Flasks: Small Flask = Minor Potion = Alchemy skill: 2 Flask = Potion = Alchemy skill: 3 Large Flask = Super Potion = Alchemy skill: 4 Mixing Potions: To mix potions, you need alchemy skill of at least 1. Open your inventory. Drag one potion over the other until it blinks. Unclick the potion. - Red + blue = white (restoration) - Yellow + blue = black (shadow potion, invisibility) - Yellow + red = orange (strength) - Yellow + white= purple (temporary resistance) - Augmentor makes a potion larger Drudanea / Super Drugs If you use a empty potion bottle on some Drudanea (that stuff George the shopkeeper asked for at the start) then you get Super Drug (need alchemy 2). Drink it and it seems to permanently change your stats, +100 to poison -100 to Spirit. -------------- Gameplay Tips -------------- Duplicating Items First, quicksave and open your inventory then click on the item you wish to duplicate and drag it to the play area but don't drop it. Then press Ctrl-L while still having the left mouse button clicked on the play area and when you see the bar starting to fill up release it. If you did it correctly (and there was no X over the item at the part of the play area that you had the mouse over) then the item should drop where you pointed it before loading and also be on the inventory. So far this trick has worked for me on charms potions skill-books money weapons (though nothing unique, I haven't tried anything unique so far) and the teleportation pyramids (though I reloaded just in case it got stuck) it should work with everything. Robbing People - When you put a barrel or a chest in your inventory and drag all items directly into it, you can rob just about everything with no one accusing you of theft, just be sure to be on your own when taking the items out of the chest and in your inventory. - For the Rivertown alchemist back room who will lock the door when you try to get in try this: Open the door, but don't step through the doorway, throw the pyramid through into the corridor, then close the door again. Now you should be able to pyramid in and out. - Move the whole container that the item is in out of the house (nobody says anything about it but the merchants but if when you release the button and then click somewhere outside the shop you can leave the shop before he tells you anything). - For items inside cupboards that you can't move, you can do the same thing as above only you have to move each item individually after you open the cupboard. Using Charm Enchantments - If you collect a lot of enchantments, and you can only enchant one gem spot, click the item you want to enchant several times. Fill them all one by one, and then close them. This way I made a sword with over 20 enchantments. - In the last part of the game two vendors offer gold versions, it could be a good idea to save some spots for those. Portable Bed - In a house near the abbey you can find a portable bed. You're able to move it to your inventory. - You can also get a couple of bales of hay and spread them on the ground making a bed that you can reuse. Fast Experience - Find two powerful enemies that give a hefty chunk of experience, preferably ones that are a little way apart. (For those at the end of the game a couple of blue dragon riders are perfect. 10000 experience per time). - Kill the first one (and any accompanying enemies), and then use resurrect to bring them back to life. They'll be shown as allies, but if you walk far enough away they'll revert back to being enemies. Go to where the other enemy is, and repeat. Walk back to the other enemy, and they should now be hostile again. You can kill them again for more experience. You can then resurrect them, walk to other enemy and kill/resurrect them... repeat between enemies until you have suitable levels. - Warnings: This can be a time consuming method. Especially at higher levels. If you need to sleep whilst doing this, make sure all enemies are hostile. If any are friendly they will die when you sleep. (And you can't resurrect them.) Also, make sure that any surrounding enemies can't kill them whilst they're friendly. If they die, they can't be resurrected either. Failed Item Quests workaround If you messed up the Holy Weapons quest AND are through with all other quests you can complete and are ready to go bang the gong, this could work for you. Do this right before you go to the gong as some of the world changes. First, save your game outside the entry stairs at the Holy Weapons conversion site. Second, start a new game and immediately save it. Third, open the Divinity file (windows Explorer), go to saved games and copy your "good" saved game into another directory. If this FIX doesn't work for you, just copy the saved "good" game back to its original spot under saved games. Now, move the data, Items and Inv files from your "good" saved game to the new saved game. When you do this and load the new game to start playing, your character should still be exactly the same (stats, items and all) but when you go down the stairs, you will be able to complete the quest and get an awesome ONE HANDED SWORD! The quest will still be listed in your book, but you get lots of experience points and the sword. Now walk to the blacksmith above the merchants and have him ID the sword. Now save under a new name, just in case! Go back to your files and move the new Data, Items and Inv files back from that last save to your "good" save and load up that game. You will still be in the blacksmith's room, and the door is locked - just click on him and it opens. Go to the teleporter out back and back to the gong and continue the game! JUST BE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR ORIGINAL GOOD SAVE! Good Luck. General Gameplay - Due to the high level of item interaction, some puzzles or quests require you to move boxes and stuff around to reveal a secret hatch, door or lever. If you ever see a bunch of stuff (boxes or such) piled up, chances are that there's something underneath or hidden by them, just grab them and move them aside. There might be the key that you are looking for. - Make sure to at least click on the books and manuscripts lying around, I've found a few puzzles where the big clues are found in manuscripts or books nearby. - When you're just running around in the wilderness, use your ALT key to highlight items that might be stashed away behind bushes or trees. I've run across about 10 potions just sitting underneath a tree, but you can't see them if you're just running by. The ALT key is your friend. - You can actually pick up CHESTS or BARRELS by dragging them into your inventory window.... then place them at your home base so you can stash loot in them. Also any CHESTS that you can't pick lock or open now, just take them to your home base so you can deal with them later. - Even one level of Poison is REALLY handy. It even helps you run away sometimes because a monster that's been poisoned can't move that fast, they sort of move around in a very jerky motion as the poison is working. - Any weapons that have COLD damage will FREEZE opponents when you hit them... combine that with Poison and you can take out much larger groups just by whacking each monster frozen while the poison takes over. You can hit one monster after another and soon you have 5 frozen Orcs simultaneously dying from poison. It's even better when you have the STUN skill. - Read your journal, it seems obvious but it's not really... the journal actually contains hints that you may not have picked up during your conversations with NPCs. - Don't sweat it if you can't figure something out... go explore for a bit, there's tons of quests and things to do in the world of Divinity. Make sure to mark in on your map so you can come back later. Definitely DON'T DO IT tips - Don't enter Commander Ralph's room. He'll kick you out and lock the door breaking a quest. A big one! - Don't use the key for the Gardens on the Graveyard first. It causes a break by not then working for the Gardens! - Don't open any one of the four tombs in the holy weapon secret room. It breaks a very hard to complete quest! - Don't kill the assassin before finding the clues (corpses) at the burning wagon and the secret hideaway there; you'll probably bust the quest! - Don't get the sword from the stone and then leave the Dark woods, when you return almost every living thing, including the elves will be dead! - Don't hit the gong before finishing all your open quests, you won't be able to go back after that! - Don't refuse to touch the imp's ball! Eh? That sounded a bit perverted =) But anyway, you get only one chance to do so!
