       =========================================================================
       
       Good day everyone and welcome to my Overlord: Minion Equipment FAQ. This
       is the second FAQ I've made so far so it should look alright and provide
       lots of info. The main purpose of this FAQ is to help people easily find
       specific pieces of minion equipment. I don't know if I'll be adding the
       stats of each equipment since that would take lots of time and testing.
       Well, enjoy the FAQ!

       [EI]                     EQUIPMENT INFORMATION
       =========================================================================
    
       In Overlord destroying breakable items and defeating enemies might
       yield pieces of equipment for your minions to use. By equiping your
       minions they become stronger and last longer in battle. To pick up
       equipment simply sweep your minions over them and they will automatically
       equip themselves. Note that sweeping minions over better equipment
       will discard any old, less useful ones they have. These discarded pieces
       drop onto the floor for other less equiped minions to pick up. Pieces of
       equipment can be easily seen by a bright shine they usually emit when on
       the floor. Note that most equipment is only visible on Browns. Reds,
       Greens and Blues may pick up equipment, but it might not be visible
       yet it will still have an effect. There's five types of equipment:
       weapons, helms, gloves, armguards and armor.

       [HT]                      HOW TO USE THIS FAQ
       =========================================================================
       
       The lists of equipment will follow the following format. Here is an
       explanation of how it works.
    
       Name: (Name of the item)
       Location: (Where it can be found)
       Source: (Who or what drops it)

       [EL]                      EQUIPMENT LOCATIONS        
       =========================================================================
    
       The following lists are currently organized by location. I will be
       working on a ranking system for their strength later on. Note that all 
       enemy related equipment can be obtained in the Dungeon with the exception
       of the piece of equipment Blaster Bugs drop.

       The following pieces of armor are drops from heroes. Therefore, they are
       one time only pieces of armor that once lost can never be recovered. The
       Succubus Queen, although not a hero, will be here since she is considered
       a boss and her item can only be obtained once.
    
       Hero: Melvin Underbelly
       Location: Melvin's Kitchen
       Equipment: Melvin's Fork
                  Melvin's Crown
    
       Boss: Succubus Queen
       Location: Half-way to Heaven Inn
       Equipment: Blood Red Hood   
    
       Hero: Sir William the Black
       Location: Angelis Keep
       Equipment: Sir William's Staff
    
       Hero: Goldo Golderson

       [ME]                    MINION EQUIPMENT UPGRADES
       =========================================================================
    
       Depending on what Mistress you choose you will be able to raise the
       strength of your minions' starting equipment. Here are the possible
       options.
    
       **********
       Rose
       **********
    
       Browns' Equipment Upgrade:
       Happens automatically once you choose her over Velvet. All your newly
       spawned Browns will be wearing full mid-level equipment when taken out.
    
       Blues' Equipment Upgrade:
       You can buy the upgrade from the Tower Upgrade Menu for 5000 Gold. Once
       bought, all your newly spawned Blues will be wearing full mid-level
       equipment when taken out.
    
       **********
       Velvet
       **********
    
       Reds' Equipment Upgrade:
       You can buy the upgrade from the Tower Upgrade Menu for 5000 Gold. Once
       bought, all your newly spawned Reds will be wearing full high-level
       equipment when taken out.
    
       Greens' Equipment Upgrade:
       You can buy the upgrade from the Tower Upgrade Menu for 5000 Gold. Once
       bought, all your newly spawned Greens will be wearing full high-level
       equipment when taken out.
    
       -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
       Additional to this, retrieving the Beer Kettle object from the Brewery
       in Golden Hills to your Tower will equip all your newly spawned,
       un-upgraded minions with full mid-level armor.
    
       Please note that there is a very dangerous glitch in the Brewery area.
       Once you enter, make sure you do NOT leave or turn off your game until
       you have retrieved the missing spokes for the broken wheel near the
       entrance AND have turned it completely. Failure to do so will result in
       a glitch that will make the spokes disappear permanently, thus completely
       halting game progress.
    
    
       =========================================================================
       [OI]                     OTHER MINION EQUIPMENT
       =========================================================================
    
       Besides pieces of equipment, minions can also pick up two other items
       and use them automatically.
    
       Name: Beer Mug
       Location: Mellow Hills, Heaven's Peak, Golden Hills
       Source: Crates, On tables, Drunkards, Dwarves of any kind
       Effect: Your minions drink it's contents to gain a power boost and a
               yellowish aura. They will end this state by taking a wizz.
    
       Name: Large Chicken Leg
       Location: Halfling Homes(2), Melvin's Kitchen, Golden Hills
       Source: On tables, Halfling Cooks
       Effect: Your minions munch on these for no apparent effect.
    
    
       =========================================================================
       [UH]                    ULTIMATE HORDE EQUIPMENT
       =========================================================================
    
       The following pieces of equipment are needed to get your horde to 400%
       efficiency and get the Ultimate Horde Achievent. They can all be located
       in crates in the Ruborian Desert, mostly in the Village.
    
       Helm: Golden Spartan Helm (Either)
       Armor: Spartan Armor
       Gloves: Spartan Gloves
       Armguard: Spartan Armguard
       Weapon: Golden Scimitar or Golden Halbert
    
       It is easier to reach 400% efficiency if your horde consists of 30 Browns
       and 20 Blues.
