Unlokcing "Hidden" Quests
« on: April 16, 2012, 01:48:51 pm »


               Wotcha people, here's a litte query that i have and hope you'll be able to give me some insight into solving.

Just started to play through the OC again after some downtime, and have noticed that there seems to be several Quests that can only be accessed if you're the correct character class (or can persuade the NPC granteing them).

ATM, I'm in Chapter One and noticed that gilles (Moonstone Mask) won't speak to my character until i've accepted Oleff's Quest for Never's Tomb. I know that Eltoora wilol only grant the Membership quest to arcane spellcasters (I'm a Barbarian / Rogue).

               Ummm... what were looking for exactly?  A list of every quest that requires a special circumstance or other variable to be set?  It's easier for most  to just consult a walk-through that contains full details. 

The one that I used many moons ago seems to still be up and running but there are others around if you google a bit.  No point in restating what has already been compiled IMO. Some, like the UHS-type I mentioned, allow you to control the level of spoilerization (just made that word up '<img'>. )

If your toon is male (yes, barb/rogues do come in female versions, too) you will be offered a task in the upstairs of the Moonstone Mask.

Your barb/rogue will also miss out on the druid-only quests in one of the later chapters, but basically most quests just require visiting the initiator and then follow the journal.

Also, some convo options changes according to alignment so be wary.  And then there are those 2 romance threads (Aaron Gend for females, Aribeth for males) though I suppose those wouldn't be considered quests since you get no GP/Xp for following them to conclusion.

               I think that if you play a male Wizard/Druid you should get almost every quests

               Sorry guys, connection timed out last time I posted.

What I meant to ask was about certain NPCs who won't talk to you unless you've already taken up a Quest or meet other criteria - IE: have to be an arcane magic user for the Cloaktower stuff.

The main one that's stumping me currently is about the NPC Hoff in the Docks District - what Quest/criteria do i have to get/fulfill for interaction?

First, your toon must be male.
Second, you must get clearance to go upstairs from the owner in the Moonstone Mask and then talk to the gnome hooker.
Third, you must convince her you will help her to obtain the quest item.

Whether this convo can occur if you have already had a "session" with the other lady or not, I am not sure, but it is worth a shot.  I think it will as long as you are a male.

A female toon must just pass the quest with Hoff.  IIRC this is the only gender-specific quest in the entire campaign.

There is also a waitress in the Docks section that will give you a smuggler coin if you first bring up the subject with the one merchant prior.  Both convos require a Persuade check.  Not much of a quest but its there.

               Well, you have to be druid in order to get into the druids' quests where you fight four of them and get a boon for each one.
In order to talk to Gilles in the Moonstone Mask you have to agree with Judge Oleff to investigate the Halueth Never artifacts. In the end you could choose to give back the artifacts to Oleff (better if your character is good) or Giles (if you're evil).
When you give the all the artifacts to Oleff you can try to persuade him to get some more, he will give you an adamantine stone, if you get them all to Giles you can persuade him in order to gain a moning star +1.
Maybe nobody tried this: if you menace Giles to have back the sacred quill (once given to Oleff you will earn other money and a +3 good score) you still can kill him while he runs away but you have to be fast into hitting him with a ranged weapon.
After giving the artifacts to Giles you could try to bully him, he will disappear but three Talona's cultists will try to get you.

               I've never heard of the Talona's cultists coming after anyone. In what area does this attack happen? Does it only happen when bullying Giles after giving him an artifact or after the last artifact or something?

               In the Moonstone Mask, when you complete the quest in giving all the artifacts to Giles you can ask him for more, whether you fail the persuade check or not you can try to force him so that he will run away leaving you against three Talona cultists.

               Similar thing happens with Nyathar, when you complete the quest he will give you the Ironwood but you can ask for more forcing him, no animal will come to aid him, he will simply pay some more and disappear, you lose a merchant in the end. Even Ophala will go away if you force her to give you some more after she gives you the diamond
