Although I havent played the first one, this sequel is definitely one of the great titles ever to come for PC gamers. Everything on this guide is made entirely from my experience while playing the game. And I dont expect anything to be perfect. If you have any tactics or strategies that works for you better, then do it. Another thing is that this is just a GUIDE. Its not a mandate or anything to dictate what you need to do. But rather, this is made to help you decide what you really want. If you have questions and suggestions, kindly email me. I will gladly reply to them whenever I can. But if the question has been answered or can be found within this guide, your email will be humbly ignored. Mindless insults or unconstructive criticisms will be posted in the next updates with similar replies. ------------- 00AD -- [GAMEPLAY TIPS] ------------- AD01 -- STICK TO ONE CLASS AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE! -->There are four classes in the game. We have Fighters, Rangers, Combat and Nature Mages. Though specific skill sets and weapons can also create specific sub-classes. If you need more info, you can check my Character Classes guide, that can be found probably on the same gaming site you found this guide. Sticking to one class will make your character more efficient by specializing in one or more fields, defining the character's role. Also, changing weapons or skills will greatly affect your character's growth. AD02 -- HAVE THE ABILITY TO HARVEST POTIONS! -->This is invaluable, specially in the early parts of the game where money is scarce and you need to increase your chances of survival. Having a ranger and/or a mage that can harvest potions from certain bushes is a great help. Also, increasing the specific skills for harvesting yields larger potions for your perusal. AD03 -- KNOW YOUR ENEMY! -->Before you jump into battle, take some moment to mouse over your target. This is will give you at least ample time to check what are the strengths and the weaknesses of your enemy; this will give you the chance to adjust your spells and attacks as needed. AD04 -- CHECK YOUR EQUIPMENT -->I think this is a given knowledge already. All gamers know the importance of upgrading your party's equipments. Just take note of the attribute bonuses the equipment gives and to what character class is it more beneficial. (ex: A fighter does not need +intelligence bonuses but mages do.) AD05 -- AVOID GETTING "OUTFLANKED" -->Well this basically means avoid getting mobbed or attacked from all sides. This can mean quick and sudden death to your party, specially for mages and rangers. You need to have a "pincer" or something like that when fighting a huge crowd. You would want to have your fighters hold the opposition at a distance while your rangers support fires and your mages cast thier spells. AD06 -- TAKE NOTE OF PECULIAR AREAS! -->Taking note of strange places helps a lot specially when doing sidequests. This will save you time finding them when you need them later on. AD07 -- SUMMON TOWN PORTAL -->This is a invaluable spell. It allows you to return to town and return to the same place where you summoned the portal. This is good when fighting bosses and looting. The portal stays until you restart the game or summon another portal in a diffrent location. Only one portal can be active at a time. AD08 -- THE MAN-EATER TREASURE CHEST (or MIMIC) and the LEVEL 100 ??? MONSTER -->In several occasions, when you try to open an innocent looking treasure chest, it will start to move and start attacking your party. You need to dispose of it immediately or you will be dead before you know it. It is tough and annoyingly powerful. Special attacks and ranged attacks are your best bet here. Just let your fighters get beaten or knocked unconscious. Dont bother healing them. they'll just die in an instant anyways. Dont worry, this monster drops a large amount of loot in all types and sizes. -->Time to time, when you have acquired several magical items, a Level 100 Hak'u witch Doctor-like monster with the name ??? will pop up from nowhere and will attempt to steal your items, lying in the ground. You can make him drop good rare items by attacking him or better, pummeling him with high powered spells or special attacks. You cannot kill him though. He's just there you drop items for you. Dont miss the opportunity when you encounter him. AD09 -- CHECK THE AREAS THOROUGHLY! Most dungeons have secret buttons or levels cleverly hidden from view. Fortunately, the map shows these buttons as blue dots in the walls. Make sure to navigate dungeons thoroughly as most of the time, secret areas have hidden treasures in them. ----- 00AE -- [Q & A] ----- #01 WHY DO I NEED TO DO SECONDARY QUESTS? -->Items and experience, my friend. Rewards from completing secondary quests are oftentimes rare and set items. Not to mention a good amount of gold, skill points and the like. #02 I HAVE ACCESS TO A SECONDARY QUEST BUT IM STILL UNDER THE RECOMMENDED LEVEL. CAN I STILL DO IT? -->Yes you can. If you are just 2-5 levels lower than the recommended level, then you can set out with medium difficulty. However, attempting to complete a mission that is 6+ levels higher than you, expect a tough time to complete it. And the faq the game's balancing system nets you small exp even if your worked hard defeating high level enemies. #03 DO SIDEQUESTS DISAPPEAR AFTER TIME? -->Fortunately, NO. There are quests that you can initiate in ACT I but you wont be able to complete it until ACT III. You can initiate a quest then just comeback when you're levelled up or you have the specific items. #04 THE QUEST NEEDS ME TO HAVE A SPECIFIC CHARACTER. SHOULD I DISBAND ONE OF MY CHARACTERS AND TRAIN THE NEEDED CHARACTER? -->Yes, you need to. However, training them is optional. Every character has their own quests and you need to have them in your party to initiate the needed events. Well, there are certain character sidequests that starts in ACT II but doesnt complete until deep later in the game. (ex. VIX's quest in ACT III) If you are done with the quest, you can disband the required character and use your previous party member if you want to. #05 I LOST THE ITEM I TRADED! AIM I SCREWED!? -->On rare circumstances that you lost a unique item (ex.Lelani's Sorrow trade items) and cant find it anymore, you are definitely screwed. #06 I HAVE VISITED THE PLACE YOU MENTIONED IN YOUR GUIDE. WHY IS THERE NO PROMPT OR EVENT LIKE WHAT YOU DESCRIBED HAPPENED? -->Remember, if you are doing a character sidequest, you need to have that character in your party, that character to touch the lever, chest or talk to the NPC's. Also take note that if its not happening, check the order of events as described in this guide. the steps needs to be done IN ORDER. #07 I ALREADY FOLLOWED EVERY STEP IN YOUR GUIDE. I AM SURE THAT ALL THE REQUIREMENTS ARE MET BUT STILL, THE QUEST DOESNT COMPLETE! -->I encountered that myself. Im sure I did everything right but still the star just stays there, and I cant complete the quest. I dont know what is the cause of this, but it is possible that this is a bug. The dragon boss in ACT II, CH8 never appeared and I almost didnt finish my game. It has happened to me twice on separate files. I just exited and tried again several times. If you have mods or other .res files in your resources folder, make sure to remove them and try relaunching the game again. I dont have a solution for this unfortunately. ------------------------- 00AF -- [SECONDARY QUESTS // ACT I] ------------------------- ++++++++++++++++++++++++ AF01 -- The Armorer's Apprentice ++++++++++++++++++++++++ * Intended level: 3 * Read the Tome of Smithing and tell Telinu the correct material list for the Dryad armor Details: When you have the mission to get the sharpening stones from Telinu, agree to help her get the proper recipe for creating a dryad armor. Once you have access to the Great Hall (After the Morden Towers main quest) look for a book called "Tome of Smithing". Get it and return to Telinu. Just choose option 3 and you're done. You will get the armor she had made. +++++++++++++++ AF02 -- Lumilla's Salve +++++++++++++++ * Intended level: 3 * Collect four nettle clusters and give them to enchantress Lumilla Details: Talk to Lumilla the enchantress, just beside the magic shop in the center part of Eirulan. You need to find four needle clusters for her. You can buy them also from the reagents shop in the same area as well for 100g a piece.

And also, there's always a risk of screwing this one especially if you're not careful when selling/ dropping items. Once any of the trade items are lost, you wont be able to complete this quest. 1.Start the quest by talking to Lelani inside the house next to the Eirulan pet shop. She will then give you a DOLL. 2. Go to the Falls (take the lift beside the Inn) and visit the first cottage. Talk to Fenella and give the doll. You will then get a FLASK OF ELVEN ALE. 3. After you arrive in Azunite Desert (ACT I, CH7) enter the room and talk to soldier Baramar. He will tell you that he needs something to quench his thirst.

Talk to the half-giant Nalus and he will show interest in the Agallan Relic you have. Trade it for some HARPY FEATHERS. 9. Go back to Aman'lu and head to the northernmost part of the town. Find Ithir'renne in one of the ruined houses there and trade the Feathers for an AMANLU ORCHID. 10.

Take the spiral path upwards. Teleport to the Elven Shrine and make your way to the first part of it (where you first took the platform down) and look for a secret button in the west wall. You just need to put colored stones to the appropriate sockets. Put a green stone on the green socket and go down. Push the button on the wall to open the other side of the room. Put the yellow stone to the yellow socket. Pick another yellow stone and two red stones. Go down. Locate a button in the wall to open yet another side of the room. Put a red stone in the socket and get two purple stones. Put one purple stone on the socket to open another secret area in the room.

Teleport back to Eirulan and return the Sapphire to Laenne to complete the quest. +++++++++++++++++ AF05 -- The Kithraya Hive +++++++++++++++++ * Intended level: 13 * Destroy the Kithraya hive queen Details: When you first visit the Falls, go past Fenella's house and take the lift down. Go across the bridge (the spirit there is part of another sidequest) and take the lift up in the other end. Enter the house and talk to Tamari to initiate the quest. Lower the bridge so that you can return to her easily later on. When you're near the exit of the Lower Kithraya Caverns, you'll find a path splitting south. Take the path and fight your way to the Queen's Hive. Defeat it to get its severed head. Return to Tamari, give her the queen's head to end the quest. +++++++++ AF06 -- The Hak'u +++++++++ * Intended level: 7 * Find the hidden rear entrance to the Hak'u caves * Rescue Hesla's daughter Tanzi * Speak with Hesla in the Eirulan infirmary Details: During the Morden Towers main quest, you will stumble upon Morain fighting a Hak'u. Talk to her to get her request to save her niece, Tanzi from the clutches of the Hak'u and activate the quest.

After completing CH5, leave the Dryad camp and take the west gate. Find a small cave just near the incantation shrine. Enter it and talk to Hrawn. Go back to the Dryad camp and go east to the Eastern Greilyn Teleporter. Teleport to Western Greilyn Jungle and go west to find the house with the Hak'u usurper. Knock the door and you will be allowed to go inside. Kill everything inside, collect your loot, then head back to the teleporter. Go back to Hrawn's cave and get your reward.

Enter Rokhar's Rift Site and talk to him. Defeat all the beasts that will appear until the dire wolf is tamed. Talk to him again. Head back to Eirulan and talk to the pet merchant.

Look for the path that goes south and find a Bone-Filled cave. Look deeper to find the garganturax inside.

Go back to Eirulan and talk to Arianne to get your reward and complete the quest. ++++++++++++++++++++++ AF10 -- Feldwyr the Blacksmith ++++++++++++++++++++++ * Intended level: 12 * Find Feldwyr's anvil * Find Feldwyr's mythril ore * Return the anvil and mythril ore to Feldwyr * Find Feldwyr's hammer * Return Feldwyr's hammer to Feldwyr * Speak to blacksmith apprentice Fyrndolf in the town of Aman'lu Details: This quest requires fighting several enemies between 22-24. If you have difficulties, you can just return back once you are at least 20+. And the fact that even if you kill a bunch of level 22's, you wont gain that much experience. So it is recommended to just come back if you are in an appropriate level. You can however, initiate the quest and get the anvil as he requests. The mithril ore may need to wait. In the easternmost part of East Grielyn Jungle, there should be a bridge and another path heading north. Go north and find a cave past the ruins. Make your way inside, clearing enemies as you move along. Talk to Feldwyr and he will ask you to retrieve his anvil and mitril ore. There is no general direction of the area. Its very straightforward so just navigate the area until you find the LV16 Hak'u mini boss carrying the anvil. The are secret rooms in the area so make sure to look for hidden buttons and levers along the wall. If you have noticed, the path leading south has a LV.24 boss guarding the entrance. Even if you defeat it, the next area is littered with several level 22's. Just like what I noted earlier, it would be best to return to the area once you reached lvl 20 at least. Once ready, clear the area and all its rooms. Once you obtain the anvil and the ore, go back to Feldwyr and have a short scene where his hammer is stolen and the enemy breaking through the wall. Follow the new path and eliminate every single enemy. After getting the hammer, return it to Feldwyr. You wont get your reward yet, not until you reach the ACT II town of Amanlu. Talk to Fyrndolf, just inside the house behind the weapons and armor dealers, to get your reward and complete the quest. +++++++++++++++++ AF11 -- A Family Heirloom +++++++++++++++++ * Intended level: 14 * Enter the crypt described by Master Thestrin * Solve the Guardian of the Crypt's riddle Details: As soon as your quest to find the four stelae of the Azunites begin, head down the camp and defeat the first guardian. Just above the stairs is a tower with a lift heading down. Take it and talk to Master Thestrin to get this quest initiated. He will ask you to visit the crypt and solve the puzzle. It is located southeast of the camp. If you want to, you can head back and find the crypt. Dont open the doors however. It contains a lot of Azunite undeads, levelled 28. Speak to the statue and quess the proper order of the gods mentioned. If you guessed incorrectly, level 16 monsters will appear. ITs a good way to farm EXP, gold and items. You even have the chance to get rare items. I think you can do this 4-5 times. If nothing appears even if you intentionally answered incorrectly, that means its enough. Answer the statue in this order. (3-3-1-1) The backdoor containing the sword will open, guarded level 28 undeads. You can rush in, grab the treasure and run away. Return to Threstin and get your reward. You need however, to keep the sword if you want to finish the second part of the sidequest. You will get some chants as reward but keeping the sword will net you insults from him. Just ignore his babblings and keep the sword. ++++++++++++++++++++++++ AF12 -- The Imprisoned Half-Giant ++++++++++++++++++++++++ * Intended level: 19 * Talk to the soldiers about releasing Sartan once Windstone Fortress is safe * Talk to the newly freed Sartan Details: Upon entering Windstone Fortress, you will find Sartan imprisoned in a pit. Talk to him to get this quest started. After you successfully activated the Azunite artifact you have acquired and finished the scene where the blocked path in the north, talk to soldier Orayne to get Sartan released. If you still have space in your party, you can recruit him now. If not, just choose option 3 and he will just go to the Eirulan Inn, ready to be hired until you change your mind. ++++++++++++++++++++ AF13 -- The Missing Squadron ++++++++++++++++++++ * Intended level: 18 * Find Private Nolan * Find Private Banos * Find Private Caiden * Speak to Squadron Leader Taarth Details: You can talk to any of the missing soldiers to get this mission started. Make sure that you tell them you to follow you. 1. The soldier Banos is located in the Eastern Gatehouse, inside the room in the first hallway. 2. Soldier Nolan is in the westernmost room of Windstone Barracks, directly accross the Windstone teleporter. 3. Soldier Caiden is in the southwest corner of the West Gatehouse. After finding all of them, talk to thier squadron leader, Taarth. He is located near the pit where Sartan is held. +++++++++++++++++++++++++ AF14 -- Secrets of Xeria's Temple +++++++++++++++++++++++++ * Intended level: 19 * Enter the Temple of Xeria and place the Stone of Life within its socket * Finish exploring the Temple of Xeria * Return to the grizzled bar patron in the Eirulan tavern Details: You can start the mission as soon as you gain access to the bar/inn. Talk to the obviously marked guy called Grizzled bar patron. Have him tell you his story and you will get the mission started. But you wont be able to complete it until you reach the Temple itself in ACT I, CH10. Once inside the temple of Xeria, navigate it until you find a room similar to the rooms in the Secrets of the Elven Shrine quest. You need to put the proper activation stones in the correct sockets. To prevent running back and forth, just collect 4 stones for each color. You can just throw away the extras later on. 1. Place one green stone to the socket. A door opens in the west wall. 2. Get yellow stones, then put one stone in the yellow socket. Southern door opens. 3. Place yellow and green stone. Two doors will open. Enter the room that contains red stones and get them. Go to the room with red sockets. Put the stones on the sockets. 4. Get three purple stones from the other side of the room and place it on its socket on the other side. 5. Another room opens with a single purple socket. This opens the path to the main room that has all four colored sockets. Put a stone on each of them to open the door. Get the loot and the chant inside. Go back to the bar and talk to bar patron to earn your reward. -------------------------- 00AG -- [SECONDARY QUESTS // ACT II] -------------------------- ++++++++++++++++++++ AG01 -- Tywlis' Broken Staff ++++++++++++++++++++ * Intended level: 30 * Find the reagent Tywlis needs to repair her grandfather's staff Details: Find Tywlis inside the house in the northern part of Amanlu. This could be the easiest mission in ACT II, depending if you have a RAINBOW TRINKET stored. It is a regeant that can be dropped by monsters even in ACT I. If you dont have it, this mission may have to wait until you get to Snowbrook Valley. A rainbow trinket can be found in the Frigid Cave, just past the first bridge. Just give her the regeant and claim your reward. ++++++++++ AG02 -- A Dark Ohm ++++++++++ * Intended level: 26 * Observe the Vai'kesh during one of their rituals * Return to mage Lyssanore in Aman'lu Details: Visit Amanlu's magic shop and talk to Lyssanore. She needs you to observe Vaikesh rituals. Doing this quest is necessary if you want to gain access to another sidequest. When you reach the part when you are pursuing the Vai'kesh Prophet, wait till you get the scene where his minions emerges from the Large Vai'kesh cavern. Go inside and the door there. Watch another scene where a large group of Vai'kesh is performing thier ritual. Teleport back to Amanlu, talk to Lyssanore to complete the quest. You will learn the Chant of the Dead, which will allow you to talk with the spirits you have encountered along the way.

There are always shrines conviniently located near the spirits. Not to mention that the effects of the chant (Vox Mortem) lasts 300 seconds or 5 minutes. You can actually start this mission once you get the Amulet of the Dead with you. This is a unique amulet. You can talk to the spirits in any order you want. There are 18 of them and wont be completed until you're late in ACT III. 1. The spirit in the Lost Valley of Azunites is near the incantation shrine, within the ruins. He should be near a wall. 2. The Northern Greilyn Jungle spirit can be found inside the Haku caves, just beside the broken bridge. The caves are just northwest of the North Gate. 3. The Western Greilyn Jungle spirit can be found just west of the teleporter. It is near the Hak'u Usurper's house. 4.

The incantation shrine is just inside the large Vai'kesh Cavern beside the cave the spirit is in. 10. The Amanlu Inn spirit is in the broken balcony of the Amanlu Inn. The shrine is in the northeastern part of the town. 11. The other Amanlu spirit is just under Twylis house. Find the secret buttons to open the area and the lift leading down.
