Thanks L4L for explaining about the stones and igni sign. Is the swamp very hard?

Oh, yes. The swamp is deadly, especially at night! Drowners, drowned dead, echinops, bloedzingers and the dreaded archeospore! Yikes!

Hi Sherryah smile

I certainly used the talisman early-ish in the game but later, when I got super (or maybe over ?) confident, I took it off and yelled "Hah !! Come Get Me" !! cool

'Course, being too cocky by half I soon learned my lesson rotfl

Cheers.

lol I can recall feeling quite invincible, and then being flattened by an island full of wyverns!

L4L, that was what I was saying. I don't think it is to your advantage -I don't think it's cumulative- but I could be wrong. After a while you have so many bronze talents you can fill in the blanks just in case - every time I've played I've wound up with lots of bronze talents unused.

My game told me to leave the Spider Worshippers Cult until chapter 3.!
Remember that if one has too many things in the Potion ingregients part of your inventory it is possible to find a fireplace and meditate to make potions.

If the top part of the inventory is full then look to see if there is any food you can eat to strengthen your vitality. I always try carry a sandwich or two for that purpose.

In the swamp most monsters increase in number around whatever place you are attempting to reach. If they are gathered groups I knock them over with Aard then step on them and dispatch them. Most remains contain ingredients for potions - although it makes me grin to find Orens on some. grin

Ohh, the swamp at night is too much fun!

I was bouncing along, having fun, killing Drowners and Drowned Dead and having no problem at all.

All of a sudden, there was a wyvern who I also dispatched handily.

Sauntered along a bit more--saw the island with the wyverns--drew one off and whomped on him.

Went back to do it again, and whomp!

Suddenly there were 3 or 4 Wyverns, a bunch of drowned dead, drowner,evil plant things, and ghouls and aghouls all intent on making me their next meal. It's a good thing that Geralt runs fast!

I also learned Not to meditate in the swamp as the only time I did that I "woke up" surrounded by big ole monsters lol

At least until now, the drowners haven't been too bad. And when you kill them, you get experience points. Level up time!

Thanks Nickie, I assumed they weren't cumulative, but I didn't want to miss a good thing if they were.

Do you get Silver Talents based on where you are in the game? I've gotten 2 so far, and more bronze. We need a transmutation spell wink

Thanks Alice, I'll do that then.

I get a big kick out looting houses in the city. You can go in anywhere and loot and the people don't say anything--not even the thugs.

The other thing I get a laugh about is waking people up in the middle of the night to talk to me lol

And most of them aren't grouchy, just matter of fact, what do you want. It's pretty funny.
Ah, so you found wyvern island. Fun! Lots of points there if you can do it.
I don't know if it's a certain point in the game, or a certain level where the silver talents and then gold appear. headscratch

Yep, I will go back in for sure--but think I'll do it in the daytime. Or else I'll just keep trying to draw them out one at a time :Lol:

I don't think I 'll do the wolf contract though--well, I won't unless they attack me and then all bets are off!

How much dog tallow do you need for the dog contract? I haven't taken the contract yet--thought I'd collect tallow first and then do it.

I'm assuming if you take a contract and then don't do it, there is no penalty?

I did the dryad yesterday. If hubby saw that, he would be stealing my game lol

lol Know what you mean about going green.
No penalty for not taking the wolf or dog contracts - you just don't get the points. The contracts are just available for that purpose, and not necessary for the game story line. In one of the caves you do have to kill wolves that are trying to eat you, and I had to take the headphones off. And I tried to outrun most of them, just didn't want to kill them. I didn't do either contract, so don't know about the tallow, didn't realize that would suffice.

Nickie, I know what you mean about the headphones. Eeeek!

I just gritted my teeth and got it over with!

I did the dog quest and you only need
Click to reveal..
6 pots of dog tallow.
I found all the pots in the town--no animals hurt in the pursuit of this quest.

I did go back to
Click to reveal..
Gramps for some mayhem, but I don't get the choice to kill him anymore.



I was a bit stuck, but managed to finish this one quest which in turn has opened up some more. It will be interesting to see how much I can play in the next few days.

I guess I could just forgo sleep and play at night when everyone else is asleep rotfl

I cannot bring myself to kill the good dogs no matter how many experience points they offer. I used up the 3 pots of dog tallow I found in the houses accidently in potions. Dog tallow is the fat from the body of the dead dog right? Gross!

Lets hope the younger generation who have a tendency to mimic what they see don't get any ideas.That is the one part of the game I highly object too to condone killing innocent dogs. I have no problem killing animals that hurt my character though, bring them on! Wolves until recently were going extinct and unless they attack me I hate killing them. Don't know if I will do that quest. In sacred 2 they have us going on their territory and killing them and now I see the repeat in the Witcher game also. Strange trend if you ask me. Anyway good thing we are not penalized for not completing contracts. Just my opinion thanks for letting me vent.

Sherryah, I don't see the reason to kill dogs either, and I'm very glad that is an optional quest. It's not necessary to complete the game. I found all the tallow before I took the contract. It is sad what some folks do for fun.

I don't like killing wolves either, but it does seem to be "normal" in RPGs. I haven't played many, but I think you've had to kill wolves in every one.

There is one area where you will have to kill the wolves though--but they will attack you first. Turn your sound down though. The sounds were distressing.

I don't know what I will do tomorrow when I have to return to "real" life sad

Unfortunately, it's in the nature of RPG's to make choices that involve killing things, including human beings. Witcher will force you to make uncomfortable choices. But that's why the game is so compelling.

Well said Hagatha.

L4L, regarding gramps:
Click to reveal..
If you go to his table while he's eating, that should spark a conversation about killing him, unless you've already had the conversation. Anyway, if you don't kill him, he has a great potion called hangman's venom, or something like that which he'll give you - anyway, get that formula if you're still there, most helpful

Sherrayah, regarding the doggy tallow quest - I also was shocked, and thought - what were they thinking!

Luckily, this is only an optional quest, and if you were only going to kill the doggies for exp., there is bucketloads more exp. to be gained in the sewers and the swamp. (Also the crypt if you already have access to it)

If you need tallow, to complete the quest with, keep in mind that this game gives ABSOLUTELY NO penalty for looting. I even looted Ramsmeats' containers and closets right under his nose, and he did not budge! I just walk into any house, ignore the people in it, and loot all their containers - they don't seem to mind! - and there you will get dog-tallow and flintstones amongst food and other goodies.

Just remember to drop collected tallow off at the Inn-keeper asap, so that you don't inadvertantly use the tallow when making sword-coatings. smile

I am having a new problem that is irrating me. When I go to save a game in the enhanced version it takes me 2 minutes at least to get to the menu where the game can be saved. After I hit the save empty spot it quickly saves. Has anyone else had this problem? It use to save my game quickly. I even deleted alot of old save game spots thinking that was the problem but nothing changed. Thanks for the advice Moondancer. Thanks to whoever replies to this.

Gads, that would be irritating. In my 3 1/2 plays through this game I've never had this problem either. I was going to suggest you delete old save games, but you've already this. Boy, I hope someone else can help you.

Thanks for your reply really strange it just started happening. Anyway maybe you can help me with something else I need to know. I am trying to fill the contract with the drowned dead in chapt.2 and needing 10 tongues to prove I have killed them. however all I get is brains from the drowners. Where are the drowned dead or are they the same as the drowners? Where can I find the drowned dead if they are not the same as a drowner? Thanks in advance.

Sherryah- grin

I found the tongues in the swamp, that is where I got most of them. Found some in the graveyard too, but did not get into it until chapter 3, the swamp is a good place and also a good place is the sewer. I think Drownerss and Drowned Dead are the same, but I could be wrong.

Good Luck

The drowned dead are very strong downers- look the same but they'll be identified as the drowned dead. You'll find them in the swamp or out of other water places, just like the drowners. To get the tongues, you have to have read the Swamp Monsters book. You'll find that a lot with different monsters - you get some ingredients, but you'll have to read the books to get other ingredients that are particularly helpful for quests, etc.

Thanks thats the problem I even killed the drowned dead and did not get the tongues. Now I realize I have to read the book. Do you know who has that book? Also I found the canibal's house in the swamp by any chance is that gramps hut? he gets on my nerves when I tried to help him moving so slow so I dumped him and restarted a save game.

Sherryyah, you do have to help Gramps in the Swamp if you want a certain recipe (and it's a very good one -- well worth the effort). If you like, you can clear the path to the Shrine he needs to get to first, then come back and get him.

Check with the Antiquary in the City for the book of ingredients for Swamp creatures. In the first couple of Chapters, I spent most of my money on alcohol for potions and books. Having those alchemy ingredients can make your life a lot easier.

I found that in order to Save or Load reasonably quickly -- even in Enhanced -- I could only play with about 30-50 game saves at any time. I just copied the rest of them to another folder. Otherwise I spent a lot of gaming time twiddling my thumbs waiting for the menu screens.
