Act II: Notice Board Quests
Location: Gran Soren
Acquire 66 Skulls
Reward: Golden Pale
If you completed the “Bone of Contention” notice board
quest, then you will have received 60 skulls as a reward. Simply pick up 6 more
along your travels which is incredibly easy – as your pawns may just pick them
up on their own – to complete this quest.
Acquire a vial of Wyrmward Perfurme
To find the perfume, go to the Ruins of Aernst Castle and
climb up the stairs that lead to the rear of the castle. You'll see a large open area
where there are boxes stacked up. Look for a chest in this area, near the
boxes, and open it up to find the perfume inside there. Return to the Alehouse
and talk to Arsmith to complete the quest.
Acquire 10 Parcels
Head north to Soulflayer Canyon and enter from the west entrance
near the Greatwall. When you enter, go to the left and up the slope with the
Cyclops on it. Go to the right and slide down to the left side. Make the turn
again and slide down another watery slope but this time stick to the right. Walk
along the ledge there to find the packages waiting for you, scattered all over
the ground there.
The Secret Admirer
Acquire Ophis’s Badge of Amity
When you complete the mission “Thick as Thieves” for
Ophis by killing ten bandits at the Aernst Ruins, you will receive the Badge of
Amity from her. Simply complete that quest and then bring the badge to Arsmith
at the Alehouse to complete this one.
A Book Keeper’s
Acquire a Promissory Note
Once you have cleared out the Ancient Quarry of the
monsters and ogres, Alon will open up a shop inside halfway through on the
right side. From him, you can find the promissory note for sale. Buy it and
return to Arsmith to complete the quest.
A Token of Esteem
Acquire Maul’s Badge of Amity
When you visit Maul in the Ruins of Aernst Castle and
talk to Maul, the bandit leader, he will give you the option of two quests to
complete. Once you have completed either one of them, return to him and you
will get the Badge of Amity from him. Then just take the badge to Arsmith at
the Gran Soren Alehouse.
A Fabled Dram
Acquire 5 King Bay Leaves
You can find these leaves in the area to the right of
Selene’s hut in Witchwood. There only seem to be four that appear at a time, so
take one to the Black Cat and have the forger there create an extra to complete
the quest. Keep in mind that you can only access this area if you have
completed both the “Lost and Found” and “Witch Hunt.” Talk to Arsmith once you
have all five.
The Hearts Compass
Escort Tomlin to the Prayer Falls
Reward: 3 Vigilites
Simply escort Tomlin to the Prayer Falls. It’s not any
different than the millions of escort missions that have already taken place.
Tomlin does seem to be a bit slower and does doddle a lot more than the other
companions, but carrying him helps lots.
Location: Pawn Guild
Defeat 3 chimera
Chimera’s are the lion headed huge beasts with a goat
head and snake tail that can be found in a few places throughout Gransys. To
find them the most often, look near the Abbey, along the path north of Gran
Soren, and just west of Aernst Castle.
Slay 25 Crows
Crows can be a little tricky to kill, but you can find
plenty of them to the north at the Abbey, in the Wilted Forest, and in
Witchwood. Take down 25 of them and this will be completed. Trying to kill them
with swords and/or maces can be a little frustrating, so take a bow out for
this quest to make it infinitely easier.
Put the Eye Out
Defeat the Cyclops
Reward: Silver Idol
Make your way to Shadow Fort and go through the front
gates. To the right side, near the castle wall, there will be a hole in the
ground that leads to the Frontier Caverns. Enter them and follow the corridor
to the far end and you will come out to an arena looking room. In the center of
it will be a large Cyclops that is covered in armor. Use the usual attacks on
it that you use for other Cyclops, as they still work, they just take a bit
longer. Once the Clops is down, you’ll receive a silver idol for your troubles.
Defeat 10 Sulphur Saurians
If you head to the Northwest of Gran Soren, to the river
between the Prayer Falls and the Nameless Falls, you will find plenty of
Sulphur Saurians being slugabeds along the river bank. Simply kill them as you
would any other Saurian and you will get this quest easily.
Defeat 3 Gargoyles
You can find gargoyles easily within the Everfall after
you have reached "the end" of the game. There will be plenty to choose from once there
and they are much easier to kill while indoors. They are much harder to defeat
outside in the dark where they otherwise randomly appear at night within the
A Dark Chorus
Defeat 10 Harpies
You can find harpies anywhere north of Gran Soren, as
well as along the mountain pass to reach the city from the Encampment. Harpies
travel in large groups so killing 10 is not difficult at all.
Slay 24 giant bats
You can find bats in pretty much any cave structure. Go
into the well, Everfall, the Quarry and the like to find them. Once you kill 24
of them, this rather simple quest is over and done with.
Quell the Hobs
Defeat 30 Goblins
Reward: 5000 XP
Again another nice and easy quest. You will run into more
than your share of goblins on your travels and will get this without even
Escort Adaro to the Shadow Fort
Another escort mission in which you need to escort the
rather feeble looking Adaro to the Shadow Fort. It’s not that long of a journey
as some of the others, but you will need to keep an eye on Adaro a bit more. Like
the other escort missions, leave in the morning to make the trip easier.
Escort Benita to Cape Pactforge
Reward: 3 Kept
For this escort mission you’ll need to take Benita to a
location just outside of Gran Soren to the south. If you have a Ferrystone on
you, use it to make this quest immensely faster. There’s no real danger along
the way, regardless it can be tiring making that same trek once again. When you
reach the area just outside the city, you can cross another escort mission off
Escort Clemente to Bloodwater Beach
Escort mission. Pack a Ferrystone. Leave in the morning.
Seriously there’s not much more to say. You’ve done these many, many times
already. You have already been to Bloodwater Beach with Barnaby, so there’s no
real secret this time around. When you reach the Conqueror’s Sanctuary before
the path that leads to the beach however, there may be a cyclops or two. If
there is, use the ballista on the cliff to take them down easily and without
harm, to yourself at least.
An Uninvited Guest
Speak with Pablo at the inn and he will tell you about a
thief that has been stealing from the markets. Speak to the two victims in each
store, Aestella and Heraldo. Once you have, return to Pablo and then agree to
catch him. It will turn night when you are ready and then you will have to walk
around the village to try and find him. You’ll find him running along the
streets, normally going from the church and back, and along the path through
the arch, up the road, and then down the stairs to the right of the church.
The easiest way to catch the thief is either cut
him off on his running route, or wait for him to run right at you. When he gets
close, hit him once or twice and that will cause him to stop running. Immediately
pick him up and that will catch him. If you fail to catch him and he escapes,
have no worry as you will get more chances repeatedly without failing the quest
itself. Once you have caught him, you will be back at the inn. Simply talk to
Pablo to complete the quest.
Burden of Proof
Defeat 3 Golems
Golems are few and far between in Gransys, so one of the
easiest ways to complete this quest is to go to the Tomb of the Unknown Traveler
on the cliff near Bloodwatch Beach and find the one there. When you find the
large rock pile there, hit it to make the golem come to life and it starts
attacking you. To defeat it, you will need to hit each of the lighted circles
on it and smash them so that they go out. Once you have defeated the golem, go
north to the rest area near Shadow Fort and rest for a few days to allow it
to respawn. Head back down to its location and fight it again. Repeat one more
time to kill it a third time and complete the quest.
Escort Quina to Prayer Falls
Reward: 5 Pancea
If you have been doing the quests in order as you get
them, then you should have already had an escort mission to the Prayer Falls. This
time however, it is a bit farther to travel to unless you use a Ferrystone to
get to Gran Soren to make this immensely easier and faster. Once at Gran Soren,
simply head west past the Quarry and Miner’s Hut, a little bit past the Abbey
and this will be done. This area is extremely brutal at night with all the
undead, so again, make sure you leave in the morning and have a Ferrystone with
The Maker’s Mercy
Defeat 10 Deer
Reward: tuft of
Deer can be found all over Gransys including in the
Withered Forest west of Gran Soren. To make this much easier, use a bow as the
deer will get spooked if you get close to them after killing one of their own. Snipe
them from afar and you can finish off this quest quickly and easily.
Burden of Proof
Defeat 10 Geosaurians
Once you start on the “Final Battle” quest, you will
first run into the Geosaurians. They are larger than regular Saurians, can turn
invisible like Sulphur Saurians, but are also much less dangerous when their
tails are cut off. Use cold against these Saurians and when you have ten
notches for each you've met, you will have this quest wrapped up.
Location: The Encampment
Slay 15 snakes
Snakes can be a bit tricky to find at first, but they
will usually appear in just about every cave you enter. If you land in prison you
will also find plenty in the corridors. There are also four or so that come out
of a box you can break before entering the Dripstone Caves from inside the well.
Simply kill 15 of the rather gruesome creatures and this will be complete.
Arise to Power
Defeat 10 Saurians
Saurians are about as common as goblins. You can find
them near any water source, usually just lying around being lazy. The fastest
way to kill them is hack off their tails from behind and then they will fall
over, leaving them open to attacks.
Defeat 15 Undead Warriors
Reward: 40 War
You can find Undead warriors in many places like Everfall
and many caves, but these ones need to be found near the Ancient Quarry. Either
head to the quarry – due west of Gran Soren – at night or go there and wait for
it to turn night and they will start to appear. If there aren’t many appearing,
you can continue north towards the Wilted Forest and more will appear. Note the
fat undead that explode don’t seem to count as warriors and therefore do not
count towards the 15 you need to kill.
Arise to Power
Slay 20 Wild Boars
You can find a ton of wild boar roaming around in front
of the Shadow Fort. While you don’t have to go there right away, just remember
that next time you are there – or if you want to bang this quest out – there
are plenty of them there. You can also find them in Witchwood, although they don’t
seem to appear as often there.
Hobble the Foe
Defeat 10 Hobgoblins
Reward: Teeth of
Much like the wild boars, you can find a ton of hobgoblins near the Shadow Fort as well. Killing 10 isn’t a big deal and you
will complete this easily.
Arise to Power
Defeat 5 Skeleton Magi
Lots of Skeleton Magi can be found in Everfall. You will
find multiple Magi in there, but you may need to run to the bottom twice to kill
5 of them. Alternatively, you can head to the Nameless Falls at night and wight
shows up and spawns them repeatedly. That is definitely a good source of
collecting their deaths as well, if you can handle the wight.
Arise to Power
Slay 29 Oxen
To kill the 29 Oxen, simply find them in the field in
front of Gran Soren and at the Eradication Site south of the Shadow Fort. They
are in many other places too, but you will find them in large numbers at these
locations, making the quest easier to complete.
A Hero’s Worth
Defeat 35 Male Bandits
Killing 35 bandits is as easy as falling down, but for this
quest, you will need to kill them at the Aernst Castle Ruins. Head there and
start a murder spree, killing 35 of them. The bandits don’t need to be in the
ruins, but rather just in that general area. It’s also a huge reward for
something very simple.
An Airborne Plague
Defeat 8 Snow Harpies
Reward: Beak of
Snow harpies can be found north of Gran Soren just past
the Windbluff Tower and the Hillfigure Knoll. Since they usually fly around in
flocks, killing 8 of them in one go is not unheard of.
Defeat 2 Metal Golems
Metal golems are not quite like the regular stone golems.
The giants don’t have the magik metal on their body, instead the discs are
spread out around the chamber. When you have finished fighting at the end of the
game, you will visit Everfall once more and while there, you will have the
opportunity to fight a couple of these fellows on your way. Take down two and
you’ll get yourself a hefty stack of gold.
Arise to Power
Slay 10 Seabirds
The seabirds are always found along the sea’s edge and on
beaches. There are plenty that you can find in Cassardis along the docks and
beach; enough to finish this quest quickly and all at once.
