Divine Divinity Silver Armor/Armor of Larian, Dragon Armor, Holy Artifacts FAQ version 1.0, 10/15/02 by Lexa - firstname.lastname@example.org As I have not played the game for several months, I will not be able to provide specific help outside what is covered in this FAQ. However, any additions or corrections are always welcome. Try the forums at www.larian.com if you need more help. Silver Armor/Armor of Larian easter egg: You can find the silver armor with a really long name after you kill the Stalker in the Dark Forest - a guy standing near a cabin will give you the quest. Once you kill the Stalker, you can find the armor in a chest, and is rather good armor by itself. You will need your teleporter pyramids to correctly finish the quest, so if you haven't gotten them back yet, continue with the main storyline (rescuing Zandalor) until they're restored to you. To change the Silver Armor to the Armor of Larian, you have to collect all four treasure map pieces. They are: - in the northeast corner of the Verdistis sewers, on a body - bought from merchant Mpeznak in Verdistis - in the spider cave west of the Archer's Guild - in the southwest corner of the Dwarves' hall in a prison room. Once you have all four pieces, you can find the entrance to a cave in the Dark Forest. The entrance is next to the mountain range northwest of the white pavilion in the northwest quadrant of the Dark Forest, and is rather hard to spot because it's hidden behind a clump of trees. I actually ran past it about five times before finally finding it - carefully mouse over every copse of trees you see to find it. Once inside, you have to find the three crystal balls in various parts of the cavern and put them into the decoratively-enameled bowl (the red one). That will open the secret door to the treasure room. You can walk through a wall north from the treasure room and get into a room with four ropes and a tombstone with a message about the Sept 11th attacks. This is the tricky part - to get to the Easter Egg area, you will need some specific things in your inventory. a) the four ropes from the room b) exactly 2002 gold (press control while dragging gold out of your inventory to separate it) c) five ales from Rimmer in the Dwarves' above-ground town (you can either buy them from him or tell him of his brother's greetings after you talk to his brother in the Dwarven Halls) You need these exact numbers or else it won't work, so if you have extra rope, gold, or ale, drop it first. Drop a teleporter pyramid here (the portal stone on the other side doesn't work, so you will be stuck unless you drop a teleporter pyramid here, and keep one on you to get back to it), and touch the tombstone, then walk onto the portal stone in the northwest corner of the room. You should be transported to an area where a paladin and a bad guy fight eternally. Walk around and you will see prison gates. Open one and use a rope on it to be able to climb down. Release the prisoners (the DD development team). You can get in between the areas either by lockpicking the doors or by climbing down from the different prison gates. In the last area, somebody will ask you to go down and kill the game's bugs. These can be quite tough, but once you do, talk to Sven and he will change your Silver Amor into the Armor of Larian (save before talking to him, as the armor's stats are somehwat randomized. You can keep reloading until you get really good stats). It has slightly better stats than the silver armor but is invisible, so you look pretty dumb. If you don't like it, you can always use the dragon armor. To get back out, use the teleporter pyramid you kept on you. You don't have to drop it to use it; just click on it in your inventory. For extra fun, steal the sound team's organ. It's pointless, but it'll look snazzy in your inventory. Dragon Armor: You have to collect each of the five pieces. - Belt: in the west side of Verdistis, you will encounter two sisters squabbling about their inheritance. After talking to them, you can go into the house. Either go down the hatch or fall through the floor, and the belt will be in the basement. - Shield: in the armory of Stormfist Castle. You can get it while you're Janus' flunky, but if you miss it then you can still get into the castle all sneaky-like. If you've already been thrown out of the castle, collect both of your teleporter pyramids, and walk into the gate until you're _just_ before the point where you get thrown out. Open your inventory and drag a teleporter pyramid into the courtyard, and then use the other one to teleport into the castle. Don't talk to anybody inside the castle (they're set to still think you should be there, which will confuse the game), but go straight to the armory (room west of the entrance) and take the shield. If the door is locked, the key is in the room directly north of the armory. - Gloves: inside one of the elven burial pyres in the Dark Forest - Armor: Once you've solved the Stone Axe quest, be sure you have the note that proves the Dwarf King's brother's guilt, then talk to the Dwarf King to get the dragon armor quest. You will need both the armor itself, and a dragon heart gem to really make it nice. To get the armor, talk to Sir Patrick in Verdistis - he just has it lying around, and will give it to you once you run an errand for him. To get the heart, go to the Warrior's Guild (north of the Warrior's Guild teleport in the Dark Forest) and ask for admission. The second quest you get for it will be to retrieve the dragon heart by killing a dragon rider in the imp castle. Once you've done that, show it to the Warrior's Guild master first, then go to the smith in the Dwarven Halls to put it into the armor. (If you forgot to show it to the Guildmaster, that's okay - just go back to the smith and he should still have the old armor and heart in his inventory! You can just buy it back) - Helm: Once you have the armor with the heart in it, go back to the Dwarf King, and he will give you the Dragon Helm. If you killed the dragonrider before getting the quest from the Warrior's Guild, he won't drop the dragon heart, and you're screwed. However, the silver armor has comparable stats, so you're not missing much. Even if you don't intend on using it, wear all the pieces together at least once to get a bunch of exp. I'm told you also get one free rank in the skill Elemental Strike (thanks go to WarDragon for this fact). Holy Weapon Quest: Do not use your wishing well wish to get this quest! You can get it for free by reading a book in the library of the Cursed Abby. There are three holy artifacts: - holy amulet: in a corner covered with cobwebs in the elven funeral pyre in the Dark Forest - holy dagger: Talk to the Thief guild leader in the Ducal Inn in Verdistis to join his Guild. Once you've joined, go down into the cellar and into the Guild's headquarters. Go up the north hallway and into the guildmaster's quarters. The dagger is just lying around. - holy sword: lying around in Iona's Dungeon. Look for the pentacle with a candle sitting on it, near a skeleton hanging from the wall. Turn off the candle and a secret door will open. The sword is inside the secret room. If you already finished Iona's dungeon, you can get back into it through the pit in the graveyard where you came out Go to the northeast corner of the cathedral, and there will be a staircase hidden in a copse of trees. Go down there, but DO NOT touch the graves there, or else you will not be able to sacrifice the artifacts. Save first, then stand in the blue circle, and sacrifice two of the artifacts to get whichever is your preference. The stats on the artifacts are randomized, so you may want to load a couple times to get the best that you can. My thanks to everybody on the www.larian.com forums. They really know what they're talking about.
