Question from roachtbp

Where can I find recipes supposedly in Monastery (according to the Prima strategy guide)?

In the Monastery there are levers that open doors. The Prima strategy guide says that 3 recipes can be found in these secret rooms on bookshelves:

1.) Alchemical Recipe for Elixir of the Berserker
2.) Alchemical Recipe for Ironhide Elixir
3.) Alchemical Recipe for Heartsting Elixir

On my game, these scrolls were not in these room. I do not know if this is a mistake in the strategy guide, or if it is maybe a glitch in my game? I have heard that sometimes NPCs don't always load in the currect location (though I have never experienced this), so I was worried it was possible that these items didn't load like they were supposed to? Did anyone else find these recipes in the Monastery? If you have a save game before the monastery, could you load it and check to see if the recipes are there on your game?

I am playing the Xbox 360 version, so maybe they are only in the PC version?

Someone please help me ASAP!!! Thanks!

I found a recipe list on another forum (it list the names of the items created with the recipes, NOT the name of the actual recipe). Part of this list is copied and pasted below. It list these 3 items as being found in the Sea Cliff Monastery (and two of them can ONLY be found in the Monastery, according to this list). Did anyone else find the recipes for the following items in the Monastery?

1.) Elixir of the Berserker
2.) Ironhide Elixir
3.) Heartsting Elixir in the Monastery?

Ok, I am glad to hear that my game is not glitched, and that the recipes are not in the Monastery.

As of right now, the "Master Chef" achievement is glitched, as learning any Stamina potion recipe first prevents you from learning any Mana potion recipes, and vica versa. Whichever type you learn first (stamina/mana), the other type is glitched. A patch is coming to the PC soon, so maybe a patch will also come to the 360, and hopefully it will address this glitched achievement.

I did not know that there were recipes in the guide that were not even in the game, but I do think more DLC is coming, simply because of the menu screen when you start the game. It has a lot of options that seems to hint that the company plans to release some DLC in the future.

Hopefully a patch and some DLC will come soon.

The guide is wrong - in the 360 version those 3 recipes cannot be found in the Monastery. I do not know if they can be found in the PC version.
