Haha, yeah. In fact that is one of my biggest "complaints" with the game: I wanted more of it! More cities, more areas to explore... I think I am going to have to pick up the books to get my fix until the next game drops.

Those go for 15, I think. Albar's crystals are 40.

Ahhh, that's good to know. I have a ton of bloodrizuer blood in my inventory and never thought of selling stuff back to him. Thanks dood.

The moral greyness is one of the best parts.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 28, 2012 9:37:00 AM PDT
Yeah, money is hard to come by until later. One thing you can do is run around the swamp, get a bunch of drowners and bloodrizuers in a group, and kill them all. Sell the materials they drop to Kalkstein. The bloodrizuers (or whatever they are) can drop something worth 40 orens each.

Yeah, I noticed that quest log from Kalkstein's notes that gives the hints. The problem is that I don't remember which two I have left. I have all 10 towers marked on my map of the swamp, because I've found all 10 obelisks, but I'm not sure which two are still not actviated ( wish the map would indicate this, so I can't tie them back to Kalkstein's hints. Don't think I bought one from Duuerverdan yet, so I'll keep that in mind. Gonna have to raise some money somehow...I just blew it all on books and scrolls from that dwarf selling stuff in the east part of town.

SUCH a great game. It's such an engaging game world that really makes me want to take a part in it and do the best I can to make it better, even if its so morally grey.

The merchant Duuerverdan (spelling) has one for 500 orens. I don't know of another way to get it. The offering to the statue actually nets you three of the stones. I think you get one or two from Kalkstein when you start the quest.

Look in your journal under the quest log, and the actual entries for the stuff related to the quest. It will tell you where to find them (or give hints). I didn't realize this and I ended up looking it up.

I think I'm getting close to the end of chapter two. Have 2 more of those obelisks to activate so that I can enter the mage's tower. I've done almost every sidequest in Vizimia and the swamp, and investigated almost every suspect for the detective.

The strange thing about those obelisks, is that I got 8 of the 10 stones to activate them, but I'm not sure how I've gotten most of them. They just sort of appeared in my inventory. I do recall getting two of them (one by making an offering to that goddess statue, and one from a tomb in a cave in the swamp), but how I got the other 6, I have no idea.

Haha. How far are you?

I'm slightly disappointed, yet strangely relieved, to hear that.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 28, 2012 8:31:15 AM PDT
Not that I can think of.

Are there any other PC-only RPGs that are nearly this good that I may have missed out on? Particularly ones that relased in the last 5 years or so?

Good man.

So yeah, this game is like crack. I'm consumed.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 29, 2012 6:45:29 AM PDT
Yep. The only thing it doesn't (natively) work with is a controller.

Thanks Idle.

I guess I'll give both schemes a try. I hope I'm OK with the mouse-only controls so I can play this on my big TV.

This reminds me, I need to finish the last Act of The Witcher 1! Loved the game a lot when I was going through it, such a quality game. I have The Witcher 2 sitting installed on both my PC and my 360. Too bad I just started both Darksiders 2 and Guild Wars 2 >.<

You can play it 100% with the mouse alone or with mouse and keyboard - depends on what you prefer.
At the start of the game it asks you which control scheme you prefer, but you are free to change it anytime during play.

Personally I prefer mouse & keyboard combo, but its fine either way.

Thanks Nate. The reason I ask is because I want to try and run this at high settings on my HDTV, but if it's too keyboard-heavy, I'll just play it on my laptop screen. So it works OK with just a mouse?

I'm only a little way into The Witcher 2, but it has naked people. Just consider that before you put it aside.

I dunno why I couldn't get into Witcher 1 or 2. I really wanted to like it, but the story and the characters just didn't connect with me for whatever reason. I also felt like a lot of the voice acting and dialogue were cheesy.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 28, 2012 3:21:26 PM PDT
Primarily the mouse. You can use WASD to move, but you can also use the mouse. You can select Signs and fighting styles with the keyboard or the mouse.

A question about the original Witcher...does this game make much use out of the keyboard, or is it primarily controlled by the mouse?

I also played on Easy mode, so I only got like 3 gameovers and breezed through most of the combat.

StriderNeo15 says:
Yeah, according to the quest handbook I only missed one in the prologue where you have to help some villagers.

edit: I even spent some time grinding for the poker achievement.

edit2: I also did miss part of a quest in Act 3 since I sold some necromancy notes to Dethmold in Act 2.
