You will find the "distressed nurse" outside of the hospital in the garden right by the hospital, at least that is where I found her.

Good Luck

I finally finished both quests, but the crypt in the sewers was the best place (4 Graveirs) grin

I'm now in chapter 4 but how long does it take until the Vodyanoi priest is back at the altar?

If I remember you have several things you have to do before he will be there. Just do what you have to do and he will appear one day.

Mad- Yes the time is right, could not remember, except I met her outside. Thanks

Well.... I've made a lot of progress, I collected the reward for the evil Vodyanoi priest. But when I kill the monster in the crypt in the fields I don't get a head at all frown

Did you make sure to loot the body?

Yeah, but no head at all. I even did an extra check with the walkthrough at Gamebanshee to be sure that it was the correct monster.

This happened to me once and I figured out that you can only hold one trophy at a time. So if you have the priest in inventory and haven't collected the reward then you can't pick up the second trophy. I don't know if it will still be there to pick up after you claim the reward for the first trophy or not but you can try.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Oldman, I found the same thing. The wolf head was still there when I went back to get it wave

Well I finished the game finally.

The ending was kind of on the lower side of my expectations. Although, I can't recall too many games that have had really satisfying endings from my perspective.

After all the build up, it's hard to impress me.

The journey is its own reward.

I like the ending well enough. There were some questions that remained unanswered, which I liked, and some that were answered. But it wasn't a huge ending in terms of an all-out battle. It was more like the ending to a story, an inevitable conclusion, and in that way it succeeds.

I still think the ending to Planescape Torment is the best, from a story-telling perspective.

Does it really up your survivability that drastically, though? I mean, for 5k Orens it better.

H4, I thought it was well-worth the 5K Orens myself. Besides, later in the game I had more orens than I knew what to do with!

Back to the armour -- yes, it really helps. I buy it as early as I can in the game without compromising my ability to buy books.

A question about using talents---I can't seem to activate a level 2 skill for Aard even though I have the requirements, student level and a bronze talent. I have activated level 2 in other skills.

Do you have the apprentice skill activated on level 2, or is that what you're saying won't activate? Sometimes you have to reach a certain level in intelligence, could that be it?

Yes, Nickie, you are right. I was just going to say I finally found the answer. I need more intelligence. I hadn't seen that requirement before. Thanks for your quick response.

What are the best things to put talents into if I just want to beat the tar out of things with my swords?

You sound like me, H4! Of course, the obvious like strength, endurance and agility and your silver and steel sword skills. However, you also want to build up some of the magic skills like Aard and Igni etc. They will be invaluable. And you want to be able to make potions and recognize the ingredients to make them. So there are talents to spend on intelligence and other things.

You can't get through this game on sword skills alone. Wait until you meet the Archeospore in the swamp!

I would say that maxing out all of the primary statistics is very important for a fighter-type -- even the less obvious ones -- and naturally the sword skills are highly important. If you read the descriptions of some of the higher level primary stats, you can see how important they will be as the game progresses.

I also wouldn't think of playing this game without having the ability to make oils; those can make or break a tough fight. Some of them are just plain evil! evil I don't spend a dime on weapons in this game. I just use my plain swords plus oils until a better weapon drops into my lap.

Oh, yes, the oils are a great help. And Diamond Dust will do great in a pinch too.

A question about the Enhanced Edition - this may have already been discussed and I just missed it:

If I have the "original" Witcher game, can I download the Enhanced version for free somewhere to get the improvements and the two "expansions"? Or do I need to purchase the game new?

It sounds like folks are really enjoying playing this game, some for the second or third time....

Thanks, Oldfeeble

If you haven't registered the game, you'll need to do that first. Here's the FAQ on that.
