Let's keep the discussion going.

I've been wondering, when you get offered some choices for completing quests later on, is there any real value to some of the choices?

The Hermit offers you a hut for example, or you can get healed by the Nymph. Is there any value out of either of those options?

At this point I have more Orens than I know what to do with really, so I'm looking at different options.

The Hermit offers you a hut, but there's a better choice to make from a quest-related perspective.

The Nymph's choices weren't all that great, and I don't recall that they had an impact on any quest.

One of the choices from the hermit is a wreath thingee, which allows you to complete another quest for points.

From the gal - the drowner repellant that you get is nice because the drowners are worth so few points and they swarm you in chapter five, but I guess you get that no matter what your other choice is. I think a rune was one of the choices, and I took that. Yeah, Hagatha's right - there's just the quest she gives you to do initially.

Oh, right -- I forgot about the drowner repellant.

But by the end of the game drowners are so weak you can deep fry them with one Level four or five Igni. As an added attraction, since the Drowners are usually accompanied by multiple Bloatzingers, you can set off a chain reaction of small explosions with your trusty Igni spell. Blooey! grin

Oh, that was ever so much fun when surrounded by drowners and Bloedzingers!

lol As amusing as I thought it was at first playing with fire, the umpteenth time I went around that part of the crypt swamp ( I got good and lost), I decided to try out the repellant. Then it was funny all over again watching the drowners start to come toward me and then zoom off.

How do I uncover what kind of herbs it is by the hospital wall? (Chapter 2) And is it wise to save enough money to buy the armor from the blacksmith for 5000 or is it just a waste of money?

If there's no identifier on the plants, it means you need to read an appropriate book on them (or in some cases you can do a quest that gives you the same knowledge).
As far as the armor goes - some people really like it, some don't bother. Just depends on how you play I guess. If it hadn't been so darn expensive I probably would have, but it isn't necessary (unless you find yourself unable to win fights of course).

Hopefully the Druids have the book. Just got back to Vizima after defeating the stone golem with my new sword bravo
But I think that I won't bother buying the armor this time.

I found the armor worth buying myself. You can always buy it in the next chapter as well I believe.

I'm playing on normal difficulty.

I find that I have more money than I can spend now anyways, enough to buy it again if I needed too.

Me, too. I was having a hard time on Wyvern Island until I got the armor. When I went back, I sliced through them like butter!

The Antiquarian didn't have the book?

One advantage to getting better armour througout the game is that you get more quickslots for potions. I like having both Swallow and Tawny Owls stacked there ready to go.

maggie, did you just buy this game or are you trying to update an older one?

Edit: Maggie, I went back to an older thread and on that thread Milee said
Quote:
The version you have (1.4.5.1280) is the boxed and the downloaded version for previous owners (that I have) is 1.4.5.1282. You don't need the other update, your game just thinks it does


I have the boxed enhanced and though the "update" blinks at me during start up, I just ignore it and play. wave

But chapter III is really annoying, specially with the Graveir Contract, and the Medic in Distress quests.

Since I'm having problems finding any Graveir in the cemetary, and it's frustrating to look for the "distressed nurse" mad

You can also find Graveir in the crypt within the cemetery.

The nurse only appears at the hospital (outside it) at noon each day. She won't appear until after you've gone to Shani's party though.

I only find a lot of Ghouls, Fleder and 2 - 3 Alghouls in that crypt. I'll check the sewers, there's supposed to be a crypt there.

No I have had the game since it came out, I want to update it to 1.4.5.1280 and that is what I need a link for. By the way, I fully read your thread. Why does the game keep saying it needs an update and do you know where on the game you can find what version you have??? I turned mine on, looked all over and cannot find it.

Sorry for being a pest

Smiley, I don't know if you can get in the crypt in the sewer until you receive certain info, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Maggie, I don't know how to find your version. I loaded mine today to look for you. It's usually in the "about" but I'm not finding that.

Did you try the publisher's website for the patch?

I think I am going to take it off, since I downloaded a smaller patch and put it on, wish I was better at this. I will let you know how it goes.I will put on the boxed version of wither enhanced and it should be updated, looks like I messed it up again.

Maggie, that is what I have and yes, it is already patched. It's like pushing the Easy button puppy

Yes, you are right, got it back on, thanks so much, I will never update again on this game. Our Cox Cable in this area has problems, so we are having them. An Easy Button would be great.

Try going to the cemetery at a different time of day, meditate until midnight and then go. The time of day can affect what you face in a given area in terms of enemies.

Resting at the firepit near the fallen tower in the Swamp may also get you some Graveirs.

I'm also pretty sure this is one of the contracts that carries over into later Chapters.
