Booklist - HD version (The Quest + I&F)

Postby GlassDeviant » Sat Dec 10, 2016 9:19 am

I've been working on a comprehensive guide/lorebook for the HD version, mainly for my own use in looking up stuff in general, all in one place. One thing I have not seen on the forums is a booklist, so here goes. This only covers the HD game, so it includes just the main game and I&F.

Note that any book with the "Maiden Ventures" prefix in the title seems to not work if you are beyond a certain level in the associated skill, though I don't know what that level might be as I have yet to actually read a single one of the skill books).

Awesome post, thanks. This brings up an interesting question. I've been playing for about two weeks now. I read in one of the guides the recommendation NOT to read skill books until you were over 100%, so I've been saving them. However I feel like I've stalled out. Also like an idiot noob I was storing extra books in a barrel....guess what, didn't visit it with in 7 days so it re spawned and I lost a bunch of books. Oh well I can buy or collect them again I'm sure.

So short skill books right away or save till later?

If you are trying to be really strong in the end game for higher level expansions, wait. But if you're not planing on it, just read it when you get it.

Great list!!

I think there is at least one missing book (not available on any shop), the "Book of Dark Sun Energy" (Alchemy +4) that can be found with the Bokor's (the Gravedigger) map.
