Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Eraral-dro wants you to drug the mercenaries so they won't be strong enough to fight back if their party decides to turn on the Baandari.

Add the Powder to the Mercenaries' KegsEdit

Make sure you activate the keg when the Gold Coast Brewmaster is not near the kegs. If he is, just wait for him to walk away.

Once you've poisoned the kegs, find Eraral in town. The next step of the plan is to convince the traders at the Trade Stalls to give monetary support to the Baandari. You need to speak with Dordanion, Jainda and Kagun about Eraral's plan. All of them will pledge their support. Once you've spoken to all three merchants, find Eraral-dro. You won't get too far from the stalls before Tabil will come rushing in, panting. He tells you that Eraral has been taken by the mercenaries, and that they let Tabil go if he sent a message to you. Captain Aurelia Blasio wants to speak with you at her camp. Tabil offers to finish negotiations with the merchants while you meet with her.

Head west of the stables to find Eraral. He's in the captain's tent. Speak with Captain Blasio. She tells you that you can speak with Eraral, but doesn't want you to free him. Speak with Eraral.

"It's too dangerous for you to be here. Tabil … I told him to run for home, not for help!"
How can I get you out of here?
"Hss! Not so loud!
To save us all, continue with the plan. If the mercenaries are bought off, the captain will have no support. She will be easy to take out then, but not before."
Where are these mercenaries, then?
"No doubt Tabil has already gathered them together, but he's no good at negotiation, I fear. Ensure they get what they desire."

Head back into town and find Tabil in front of Fazaddu's House. He needs you to find out what the mercenaries want, as they're more keen on entertainment than they are on gold or drinks. Head inside to speak with each of the mercenaries.

Buy off the Colovian MercenariesEdit

The mercenaries are on the bottom floor of the building, the entertainers are upstairs. There are three mercenaries: Vitellia Strabo, Yggnast and Longstig are waiting to be entertained. There are also several entertainers: Sadelia is strong and good at wrestling, Ostarion has many tales of his travels to tell, Kagun is a masseuse, Dahari is a soothing harp player, Athemel is a chef, Lananwe is a dancer and Julien doesn't want to be here.

You need to speak with the mercenaries to figure out what they want.

  • Vitellia Strabo – Wants to punch something – Sadelia and Ostarion will make her happy.
  • Yggnast – Just wants to relax – Kagun and Dahari will make him happy.
  • Longstig – Wants food – Athemel will make him happy.

After you buy off the mercenaries, head over to Captain Blasio's camp. She'll run off when you approach, so you need to follow her down the hill. She will have two guards with her: one is an archer and one is a ravager. Blasio is a thundermaul. When she's dead, meet Eraral-dro by the stables to collect your reward.
