    Where exactly is
    Show Spoiler
    the Key Of The Domain (that opens Grendel's gate)
    located? I already found it once (I distinctly remember seeing its name in-game) but I either dropped it while reshuffling the inventory or I loaded a save where I didn't have it or something, and now that I'm at the actual gate it's nowhere to be found.

    I tried Locate Items on all floors with no results so I think it might have despawned at some point (I'm not sure if it would show it even if it's still in the original chest? IIRC it was in some chest, wasn't it?).

    I stole
    Show Spoiler
    druid burnoose
    from Morgana. Now, if I give her any tablets, she screams that she was robbed. If I give her this hood, she talks about him. If I sell it to her, and then give any tablets, she still cries about the theft. She is neutral, charm and offerings do not help, she refuses to talk on many topics. Somehow it is possible to improve a relationship with her?

    Of course, I somehow convinced myself it was in one of the chests on the earlier floors so I didn't even try to Detect Item on that one. Thank you!

    A lot of NPCs have scripted sequences in which they give the party items, and if they don't have the item in question when that interaction is triggered, they abort the sequence and get angry. Potentially, this can mean you miss content. In this case, it's fine.
    Show Spoiler

    Morgana's sole function beyond flavor text is to give you the burnoose, which lets you skip one encounter in the barrow caverns. If she gets angry with you, you aren't missing much.



    Yep.

    Thx.
    She answered many questions, "I do not want to discuss this with you," and I thought that she had a big quest line.
    Show Spoiler
    I had the impression that she could do something with a werewolf hunter, and that somehow one could learn to use his trait ("a mark of the beast").

    Not sure, but I obtained it later than the Quest Locker, so it must have been behind a locked door that I didn't open on my initial exploration of Kublai Axis.

    Which area is the ring pouch located in?

    Her script file doesn't seem to mention anything about that, for what it's worth.

    I opened everything there, and had locate item cast over every area... no rack.

    Don't remember :negative: Either dominion exemplar/somewhere around blackspike mtn area, or around Kublai Axis, or around Nerukruel pyramid (maybe temple of hathor sogg even). After treasure box and before quiver and bookcase, definitely. Wasn't in Skulheim, Gideon area, or seas past the chariot arrival.

    I have the ring pouch and the Nerukruel Pyramid was the first place I went to after getting down from Lalain Falls, so it's either in it or directly on the way there.

    The assay function tells me the Potion Rack was obtained in Kublai Axis. I suppose it's possible that I had placed the Potion Rack on the ground in Kublai Axis and then picked it up again, which would cause the assay function to replace the Potion Rack's original location with Kublai Axis, but there's no reason I would have done so and I can't remember doing so (whether for the Potion Rack or any other container). Perhaps it's a bug causing Kublai Axis to be listed instead of the actual location where I obtained it. :M

    Does it look like a green cube? If so, you acquire it at the academy, where

    What's the Quest Pouch supposed to be for? It doesn't seem to let me put any obvious quest-related items (like tablets) in it.

    edit: so far it only let me put Stuffed Parrot and Eyepatch in it, but not the Tricorne

    Quest pouch seems to be another bag for putting items in. I assumed it was a pouch for quest items (critical) as well but now I think it's a pouch for when you're questing. If you change the settings you can put critical items in bags probably (?) but I haven't tried it.

    Unrelated, has anyone got the Arcane spell Recharge to work? Sounds like it's supposed to replenish item charges but when I cast it nothing happens / it doesn't prompt me to select an item. Do I need to equip an item with charges?

    Currently it just doesn't work. Like some other spells. According to description, Cerebral shield should be castable on any character. Also message that it is not "casted" but "invoked".

    If a berserker holds one-handed weapons in each hand, then, after getting an additional attack, he will strike with a weaker weapon in the off-hand.
    If a berserker holds a one-handed weapon in one hand and a shield in the other, then, after getting an additional attack, he will attack with main, more powerful weapon, not to mention that he is better protected at the same time.
    WTF?
    I can not find an academy, the key to which is taken from
    Show Spoiler
    the lieutenant.
    Read the posts about north-west of Kublai Axis, but did not find anything. Maybe, empty small building with 5 cells, the lockpicking of doors on which the lieutenant does not interfere, is this academy?

    But I think that the academy is a large corner building in the NW of the city. But the key to it does not fit.

    The key is to the vault. I was adviced to use knock-knock to get into the academy (and the warehouse), which indeed does the trick.

    Ah, no, the academy is the building in center (w/Ethergate to Crowl and sewers exit), the door he initially is encountered at. The NW building is shock troops inductment center, and there is no key to it to my knowledge, nor for the warehouse on west-center.

    Does anyone know what can be done with the djinn in the bottle?


    For wiki

    Zephyr Cola + Cure lt. condition = Stone to Flesh

    Zephyr Cola + Amaranth = Cure Paralysis

    Zephyr Cola + Black Lotus = neutralize poison

    Zephyr Cola + Burning oil = super burning oil

    Valerian Root + archangelicus = bag of sparkles

    Valerian Root + blood tamarinde = neutralize poison

    Valerian Root + bitter tuber = Cure Paralysis

    Valerian Root + black rose = Cure Heavy Wounds

    Beat the game but there's still some unfinished business.

    Entropy:
    Show Spoiler
    I found both an Entropy Sword and an Entropy Axe. They cannot be equipped and their description implies someone is trapped inside them waiting to be saved. Is there anything you can do with them?


    Moravia:
    Show Spoiler
    @felipepe's map shows a teleport connection from Samhain Gorge to "Ramparts of Moravia" but I can't find such a thing. Am I mising something?
    There's a discussion on the Steam forums implying you can enter Moravia without the key from the special starting location somehow.


    Refugee of the Ancients:
    Show Spoiler
    Same here: On the Steam forums is a post by Cleve himself implying you might be able to aquire the Key of the Ancients without choosing the corresponding starting location somehow. I know you can wish for any of the three special keys from the djinn and maybe that's what he meant but is there any other way?

    Oh, I see. Had a full party when I met the princess and she was one of the NPCs wandering off never to return after the first meeting. I assume you can steal the key from her as well? Stealing/killing the Khan gives me nothing. Something to do in a second playthough, I guess.


    Show Spoiler
    Ugh, thank you, found it now. I was searching in Samhain Gorge like the quest compass map told me to. I did search all nearby areas except Samhain Underworld for some reason. :shittydog:

    Have a question about Singularity

    Show Spoiler
    I found an hourglass and text on the wall that seems to imply I need to reverse time to get across the endless corridor. Problem is no one has enough invocation to use the hourglass.

    Am I fucked or just misinterpreting what I need to do?
