FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Aveyond II:Ean's Quest

Recommended Posts

********IMPORTANT NOTE********

This information is for VERSION 2 (including 1.6 – 1.8 Beta), but the FAQs from VERSION 1 are below the double lines. While most of these questions/answers will still be valid from version 1, some of it will change. As questions/answers are verified by the original submitter, they will be moved above the double lines.

 

 

*****ORIGINAL SUBMITTERS:*****

PLEASE check the questions & answers you submitted, to be sure they still apply in version 2. Then let me know if they are still correct, and I will move them to the version 2 part. Thanks so much.

 

 

**** USE CTRL-F TO FIND THINGS QUICKLY ****

Due to the massive number of questions and answers presented here, using Ctrl-F to bring up a search text box can be very useful. You can do this in a couple ways, depending on your search criteria.

 

1. Type one keyword into the textbox, and press Enter. For example, if you want to know something about the warthog, just type in ‘warthog’ (no quotes, though), then press Enter. You can then use that to go through each place in the FAQs in which ‘warthog’ appears, to find your answer more easily.

 

2. Conversely, if you want to see the questions for an area or don’t know what keyword to use, you can use the Table of Contents below. Simple find the area in which you want information, then cut-and-paste the letters in the brackets into the textbox and enter. That will take you to the beginning of that particular section.

If you're playing in Full Screen mode, press Ctrl-Enter to switch to Windowed mode temporarily, then Ctrl-Enter again to switch back to Full Screen, if you desire.)

 

Q: Can I use my saved games from prior to version 1.6 and following in Version 2? (shaz. tiniponi)

A: Yes, you can, in either of two ways:

Method 1:

****GENERAL QUESTIONS****][

(no specific location, or multiple locations)

 

 

[dlvl]

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: (VERSION 2)

When a player starts a game, they get to choose their difficulty level (easy, normal, difficult). Difficulty level affects a couple of key components in the game.

 

Easy Mode:

-Monster's strength, attack, defense, and skill power haven't changed. (monster)

-When a character gains a level, the character's HP & SP are restored.

Normal Mode:

-Monster's strength, attack, defense, and skill power are 50% higher (monster * 1.5).

-When a character gains a level, the character's HP & SP are not restored.

Difficult Mode:

-Monster's strength, attack, defense, and skill power are 100% higher (monster * 2).

-When a character gains a level, the character's HP & SP are not restored.

 

The change is less noticeable at the beginning of the game, but as the player gets farther into the game, the curve between modes is quite noticeable.

 

 

[gdie]

GOODIES:

Q: Are there any Goodies or Easter Eggs available in Aveyond II:Ean’s Quest? (tiniponi)

A: A: Yes, there are five Goodie Caves, but finding them requires diligent searching. Be advised, you should really play the game without them the first time through ;). When you’ve done that, and are ready to start searching for them, search every nook & cranny, cliffside, etc, pressing your Spacebar or Enter at each spot, and you will eventually find the Goodies.

 

Now that Amanda has released the locations, we can publish them. The caves are on the following maps, and are conspicuously marked. ;)

WEAPONS – Spire Mountains – cliff face where you first enter from the World Map (Mainland)

ARMOR – Woodlands, in southeast corner (as far southeast as you can go)

LEVEL – Green Weed Plains – southeast corner, north of the chest with bears guarding it.

GOLD – Seri Desert, in Cliffside southwest of Pirates Cave and north of anchor chest

(LOL … since the weapons cave moved to Spire Mountains, all the regular goodie caves are in the southeast part of their maps.)

HIDDEN MERCHANT: There is also a merchant in a hidden cave, on the snowy island northeast of the Mainland. He sells fairly high-level items & spells.

 

 

[mgxp]

MAGIC EXPRESS:

Q: What is the Magic Express? (shaz)

A: Similar to traveling runes in AV1, Magic Express allows you to quickly travel to different locations. You must activate a switch at the destination before you can go there, which means you can only use it to return to places you have already visited

 

Q: Where are the Magic Express stations? (shaz)

A: Only on the mainland -

Shadow Woods, near Ravenwood

Woodlands, near Ryva

Green Weed Plains, near Thais

Brightwood Forest, near Candar

Toadstump Marsh, near Bogwood

Seri Desert, near Seri

 

Q: Why doesn't Magic Express list the place I want to go? (shaz)

A: You can only use it to get to places you've already been, and only to places on the Mainland. The switch at the destination has to be turned on. Also, each station only links to a few other stations - you might have to "chain" your way through them (use one, then the next one straight away) to reach your desired location

 

 

[prty]

PARTY MEMBERS:

BEST WEAPONS FOR PARTY MEMBERS:

Q: Where can I find the "Ultimate" weapons for each player? (KTC, shaz, whisperingmist)

PARTY MEMBERS INTERACTION/MARRIAGE:

Q: How can I marry Ean and Iya? (shaz)

A: You have to get 5 attraction points - these are already listed in the FAQ, and separately in the Party Interactions Guide (warning - contains lots of spoilers!)

 

Q: How can I marry Emma and Rye? (shaz)

A: You need to get 6 attraction points - check the Party Interactions Guide (warning - contains lots of spoilers!) for details.

 

Q: How can I marry Ava and Gavin? (shaz)

A: You need to get 4 attraction points - check the Party Interactions Guide (warning - contains lots of spoilers!) for details.

 

Q: How can I teach Nicolas a lesson in humility? (shaz)

A: Ava will do all the hard work for you. Check the Party Interactions Guide (warning - contains lots of spoilers!) for details.

 

EAN:

Q: What forms can Ean assume, and where does he get the transfigurines for them? (tiniponi)

A: The following:

1. Elf (start, and Shadow Woods)

2. Beast (Shadow Woods)

3. Chicken (Grimm's Farm)

4. Griffin (Shivendale Woods)

5. Cyclops (Graystone Pass)

6. Behemoth (Brimstone Underpass)

7. Dragar (Littlerock Plains)

8. Vampire (Cursed Woods)

 

Q: How can I change Ean's form?

A: In your items menu, use the transfigurine of the form you wish to become.

 

Q: How do I get the Giant Chicken transfigurine? (KTC)

A: You need to start the quest for the sultan in Seri. He wants something exotic.

 

Q: In Ean & Iya's profiles, what is 'Attraction' and what does it do? (question submitted by Abby, answered by KTC)

A1: It shows how much Ean and Iya are attracted to each other. With 5 attraction points, you get the "special" Ean/Iya Ending.

 

Q: How can I get Attraction points? (tiniponi, mojanecusjanepotus)

A: In several ways:

1. Give Iya a kitten (Candar - Renna)

2. Give Iya a ribbon (Candar - Lorena)

3. Fairy love spell (Happily Ever After)

4. Witch's spell (Bogwood -Hilda, if she has Calliope's wand)

5. Give Iya a gold ring (Candar - ring seller on street)

 

EMMA:

Q: How long must I wait for Emma to finish her training?

A: It may be after you gain 10 levels from the time you paid your tuition, or after you get your ship.

 

NICOLAS and GAVIN:

Q: How can I get Gavin and Nicolas in my party? (shaz)

 

A: You cannot have both of them at once, even in reserve. Nicolas hates witches and Gavin hates nobility. They will not travel together. You can have a maximum of 7 people in your party, 4 of them active

 

Q: Is it better to have Nicolas or Gavin? (shaz)

A: It's up to you. Nicolas is great for defence and healing, and Gavin is great for offence. It depends on the type of game you want to play

 

Q: Why can't Nicolas and/or Gavin learn certain magic spells? (shaz)

A: Nicolas can learn white magic, Gavin can learn dark magic. Both can learn neutral magic. So some spells they will both be able to learn, and others will be for either Nicolas OR Gavin.

(Note: right now, Nicolas can only Learn White Magic spells, but we think that is a mistake.)

 

IYA:

Q: How do I know what blessings Iya has? (shaz)

A: You can see Iya's blessings as dots when you look at her profile. Coloured dots are blessings she has; blank ones are those yet to be obtained.

From left to right the dots represent: Luck; Wisdom; Wickedness; Hope; Love; Compassion

 

Q: What guilds can Iya join, and where are they? (shaz)

A:

Chaos Mage - Thais

Mage - Seri

Enchanter - Happily Ever After

Necromancer - Casket Hill

 

Q: How can Iya join a Guild, and what are the rewards? (tiniponi)

A: NOTE: YOU CAN ONLY JOIN ONE GUILD PER GAME, SO CHOOSE WISELY

 

Chaos Guild: Defeat Chaos Master in Thais; Reward: 100XP, Storm Sphere, Chaos Master Gown

Mage Guild: Defeat the Mage in Seri; Reward: 300XP, Battle Sphere, Mage Gown

A: You can only join ONE guild per game.

 

Q: Can I join more than one Guild? (tiniponi)

A: No

 

Q: I joined xxxxx guild, but now I want to join yyyyy guild! Can I switch guilds?

A: No … you can only join a different guild if you go back to a savegame before you joined the other, or if you start a new game.

 

Q: What Spheres can Iya get, and from where? (tiniponi)

A:

1. Song Sphere (she has it when she rejoins your party in Shaenlir)

2. Storm Sphere (Chaos Guild - Thais)

3. Battle Sphere (Mage Guild - Seri)

4. Butterfly Sphere (Enchantress Guild - Happily Ever After)

5. Cursed Sphere (Necromancer Guild - Casket Hill)

6. Phoenix Sphere (pedestal in Brightwood Forest - requires 10 Karma points) (This is the best sphere in the game)

 

Q: Can I still get the Phoenix Sphere if I stole from a donation box? (shaz)

A: Yes … see below under ‘DONATIONS’

 

Q: Can Iya gain spells even after using the level-up goodie to reach 99? (tiniponi)

A: Yes … just return to the level up cave and, with each of your spheres equipped in turn, continue pulling the lever until she has learned all spells. She will gain no more levels, but she will learn the spells.

 

 

[dntn]

DONATIONS:

Q: What do I get if I make donations? (shaz)

A: Each donation you make gives you 1 karma point. If you have 10 karma points, Iya will have access to the Phoenix Sphere, which will allow her to learn the most powerful spells

 

Q: Can I still get the Phoenix Sphere if I stole from a donation box? (shaz)

A: If you have stolen from ONE donation box, then you can get a maximum 8 karma points (+9 for donations, -1 for stealing). There are two tasks you can perform to redeem yourself and get those remaining two points. Restore the beast in Ravenwood to human form, and give Great Grandma Nora her love letter which will restore her youth and reunite her with her lost love.

 

Q: Where are the donation boxes? (shaz)

A: in order of appearance (approximately)

Elfwood

Ravenwoods

Ryva

Shaenlir

Thais

Candar

Seri

Verashema

Happily Ever After

Eredar

 

 

[nmph]

NYMPHS

Q: Where are the nymphs? (shaz)

A: (this is the order in which I encountered them, Heptitus and Ceri, and Serendipity and Aisling could probably be done in the opposite order)

Heptitus - nymph of wickedness - Bogwood

Ceri - nymph of love - Candar

Serendipity - nymph of luck - Stardale Glen

Aisling - nymph of hope - Fairytale Forest

Nuha - nymph of wisdom - Eredar (Land of the Lost)

Ishtar - nymph of compassion – Shaenlir

 

 

[crsd]

Curses

 

Q: How to I get rid of curse? (shaz)

A:

Nicolas - BLESS

Gavin - CLEANSE (blue chest in Graystone Caves)

Witcheye Root (Casket Hill)

Equip and Unequip cursed armor

Equip lucky charm (from Ivanna in Candar), Undead and Toad amulets to prevent curse in the first place

 

Q: Why does Cursed Armor/Shield/Helmet DROP my defenses/attack rather than RAISE them? (KTC)

A: It's cursed equipment. Cursed means to drop defenses and attack power by half. Also, think about the location you're in: Land of the Dead, Casket Hills, Two Moons Plain. Look at the monsters: All dark magic creatures. Why should it raise it when the whole land AND its inhabitants are essentially cursed?

 

 

[chst]

BLUE & RED CHESTS:

Q: How do you open the locked blue treasure chests? (phoenixgirl)

A: You need to recruit Jack (he doesn't have to be active) and he'll have a picklock to open the blue chests.

 

Q: How can I open the locked Red Chests? (tiniponi)

A: These chests are magically locked, and require a magic picklock to open them.

 

Q: Where can I find the Magic Picklock? (tiniponi)

A: In a Blue Chest in the Mists

 

 

[dynm]

DYNAMITE:

Q: Where can I get dynamite? (tiniponi)

A: There are three places where you need dynamite in Aveyond II, and you get the dynamite from three different places:

1. Rye will have some when he joins the party

2. You will find some in a chest in the Shaenlir sewers while escaping with Iya

3. There is some in a chest in a storeroom in Seri

 

 

[clks]

CLOAK OF SHADOWS:

Q: The Cloak of Shadows does not work! What do I need to do? (shaz, tiniponi)

A: The Cloak of Shadows is not an invisibility cloak. If you want the same effect as Aveyond I’s Cloak of Invisibility, help Doyle in Happily Ever After, then choose Smelly Shoes as your reward. Monsters will be disgusted and run away if you are wearing a pair of smelly shoes!

 

 

[bbrd]

BLACK BIRDS:

Q: Do I have to fight all those black birds flying around everywhere? (shaz)

A: No - the black birds that just fly in a straight line will go right over you. If they fly a little more randomly, you need to watch out for them (like the ones in The Woodlands)

 

 

[anml]

RABBITS, SQUIRRELS, BUTTERFLIES, ETC

Q: Can I interact with the rabbits, butterflies, baby birds, squirrels, etc, I see everywhere? (tiniponi)

A: No. However, late in the game, there WILL be a cave of Squirrels you will be able to interact with.

 

 

[botl]

BOTTLE

Q: How do I get a bottle? (shaz)

A: Help the warthog in Happily Ever After

 

 

[hpea]

HEA:

Q: What is 'HEA'? (KTC)

A: Happily Ever After

 

 

[cnoe]

Canoe

Q: I can't find my canoe! (tiniponi)

A: There are three possibilities:

1. When you first get it, you’ll use it on the river once you return to the WORLD map.

2. You got off it, explored, etc, and can't find it. This is probably because you forgot where you left it. Retrace your steps, and if you still can't find it, you probably have just forgotten something you did right after you left it. Check every possible place on the shore and you should find it.

3. For one person, the canoe did disappear. He shut down the game, reopened it, and the canoe was back where he left it.

 

[shvl]

Shovel

Q: Is there a Shovel? (KTC)

A: No Shovel.

 

[shld]

Shields

Q: What does 'Spirit Shield' do? (tiniponi)

A:Some of us think it protects against Magic spells, but we aren't sure.

Q: Do I need to get all blessings to fight the Snow Queen? (shaz)

A: The chicken, and the egg it's sitting on, will come into play later in the game. For now you can just ignore it.

BOGWOOD, Toadstump Marsh

Q: How do I get to Bogwood? (shaz)

Q: What is the Softening Cream for? (tiniponi)

A: You can use it on Jack’s stone statue in the Thais sewers to return him to flesh

 

Q: Heptitus just tells me to go away - she won't ask me to help her join the Actor's Guild (shaz)

SERI, Seri Desert, Pirates Cave, Tournament

It's east of Thais.

 

Q: How much time must elapse between rounds of the Tournament? (tiniponi)

A: 45 minutes of actual playing time

 

Q: What are the rewards Emma receives for winning tournament rounds? (tiniponi. whisperingmist)

A: the rewards are bands she can equip, each with different stat bonuses, as follows:

1. Yellow band: agility +5

2. Red Band: agility +10

3. Blue Band: agility +15 (I didn't receive this one, but at least one person did)

3. Green Band: agility +20

4. Gold Band: Magic Defense +30 and agility +25 (She is also promoted to Sword Master.)

 

Q: Where do I go after getting the pirate ship? (shaz, tiniponi)

A1: Head east to find the Land of the Lost first

OR:

A2. You can explore the other islands before going to the Land of the Lost. However, please note: At one time, it was mandatory to go there (to Dead Man’s Canyon – the only place on the island accessible by ship) at some time before getting a dragon. It may or may not still be that way. It’s up to you which way you want to approach this. :D

 

Q: What do I do with the bean seeds? (shaz)

A: You can swap the bean seeds for a goat (in Happily Ever After) to keep on Grimm's Farm if you buy it. (There's no beanstalk to climb in AV2. )

 

Q: Where can I find an anchor, dynamite, and sails for One-Eye Ava in the Pirate’s Cave? (tiniponi)

A:

anchor – in a chest south-southwest of the cave

sails – buy from sail merchant in Seri marketplace

dynamite – in a chest in the storeroom north of the castle in Seri

 

Q: When I complete the hermit lady's quest in Seri Desert, sometimes I get a salamander as a reward and other times, I get golden salamander armor as a reward. Why is this? (phoenixgirl)

A: Getting one or the other as a reward is entirely random.

 

Q: Will the salamander ever lay another egg? tiniponi

A: No. If you particularly want either the armor or the salamander, save before you talk to Sabriyya to get your ‘reward’. You may be able to eventually get the armor, if that’s what you want.

 

Q: In Seri, I can choose to buy Imperial or Pirate sails - does it matter which ones I get? (shaz)

A: no - there seems to be no difference in the plot

 

Q: What do I get if I save Rasmen from the thugs? (shaz)

A: he will give you a packet of bean seeds, which you can use later in the game

 

Q: What is exotic?! (KTC)

A: Something that is huge, located in a nest, and makes a lovely omelet.

 

 

[vrsh]

VERASHEMA, Shivendale Woods, Jewel Mine, Mini-Dwarf Lair, Stardale Glen

Q: Why can’t I get to one of the chests in Shivendale Woods? (tiniponi)

A: You have to go through the Jewel mines to get to that clearing. Search the mines carefully … there is an exit to the World Map in it (look for the bright white cave entrance).

 

 

[hpea]

HAPPILY EVER AFTER, The Mists, Dogwart Plains, Mirror Mansion, Widow’s Cave, Fairy Tale Forest

Q: Where is Aveyond? (shaz)

A: You have to find a guide. Head to The Mists (lowest continent, westmost cave) to start, but there will be some mysteries you'll have to solve before you meet your guide

 

Q: How can I get past the troll guarding the bridge in Dogwart Plains? (shaz)

A: only the North Wind is strong enough to blow him away

 

Q: What will I find if I can get past the troll guarding the bridge? (tiniponi)

A: The tailor’s kit Doyle (Happily Ever After) needs

 

Q: I need the North Wind to move the troll, but I am supposed to give it to Obert. Which do I do first? (shaz)

A: This is one place where you have to choose. Either choice will potentially leave you with an unfinished quest in your journal. Neither are necessary to the plot.

 

Q: What do I get if I use the North Wind on the troll, and if I give it to Obert? (shaz)

A: If you use it on the troll you will find a tailor's kit that someone is looking for (he will give you a choice of two items that will help you during the rest of the game). If you give it to Obert you will receive the North Wind spell which Gavin can learn.

 

Q: The Alchemist in Happily Ever After says to come back if I ever want a potion made. Do I need to get her to make a potion? (shaz)

A: This is linked to a side quest - talk to Gulliver in Ravenwood after he leaves Verashema and he will give you a use for a potion

 

Q: What kind of potion can the Alchemist in Happily Ever After make for me? (tiniponi)

A: Antiwere (requires Thistleroot (The Woodlands) plus a hair from the Beast ( Ravenwood)

A: She will leave after you have found the guide/guardian to Aveyond

 

 

[brms]

BRIMSTONE VILLAGE, Fire Rock (Volcano), Brimstone Underpass

Q: How do I kill those firebirds?! (KTC, Indigo)

A1: Be at least level 50. Use Nicolas's lullaby attack to put the birds to sleep. Then whack them with weapons/spells. Do NOT use Phoenix Sphere unless you're in the 2nd level for spells. The key thing is to keep those birds sleeping.

Another way is to use Chicken Curse Spell since it will immobilize the birds. When in doubt: trust the chicken curse or run. :) (literally)

A2: Blizzard scrolls that can be bought in Happily Ever after are very useful against them, more than other spells I was using. The spell attacks the whole party and the damage it causes to each of them is 1000+ so it's really worth to buy a huge stock of these scrolls in HEA before going to Brimstone underpass and use them.

 

 

[erdr]

EREDAR, Land of the Lost, Littlerock Plains, Mount Siren, Old Ways, Hidden Library, Dead Mans Canyon

Q: Is there any way to get through the blocked cave in Dead Man's Canyon? (tiniponi)

A: No ... you must enter Old Ways from another direction.

 

 

[wpas]

White Pass, Ice Cavern (part2)

Q: What do I use to capture the North Wind? (shaz)

A: If you completed a quest for the black widow in Fairytale Forest, you will have an empty bottle. You can catch the North Wind in that

 

 

[cskt]

CASKET HILL, Land of the Dead (from Underworld Entrance),

Cursed Woods, Two Moon Plains, Squirrel Hideout, Cliffs of Remembrance

Q: How can I make Haliburt recognize Great Grandma Nora? OR How can I make Great Grandma Nora young again? (tiniponi)

A: Get Haliburt's love letter to her from the drawer in her house in Ryva, after she asks you to do so. Give it to her, and watch the magic happen. :)

 

Q: How can I get the Lord of Souls to restore the Squirrel Commander’s soul to him? (tiniponi)

A: Bring him a memory of his mother.

 

Q: Where can I find or how can I get a memory of the Lord of Soul's mother? (tiniponi)

A: Find a rose on the Cliffs of Remembrance.

 

Q: How do I kill the Vampire Bats and Ghosts? (ktc)

A: Vampire Bats are weak to Melee attacks. Spheres have NO effects on them so DON'T use them.

Ghosts are weak to magic attacks. Melee attacks are mostly ineffective against them.

Again, Chicken Curse is very effective in these situations. When in doubt: trust the chicken curse or run. :) (literally)

Q: I have Gulliver's cloak, but he isn't in Verashema

A: You have not gone to the Land of the Lost as Uthar instructed. Go there now, to Dead Man's Canyon, and after Ava and Ean speak, return to Uthar. Then Gulliver will be in Verashema.

WhiteRose, this thread is only for frequently asked questions WITH answers, not for you to post questions you want answers to.

 

I'd encourage you to repost that one in its own thread (you need to use IE to get the New Topic button), and to specify whether you're playing version 1 or 2, and if you're playing 2, what difficulty level you're on, as the answer could be more than just a level number.

Q: How do I get into the secret library?

A:Go to Eredar, and search through the city. You will find a Silver Key: http://www.amaranthia.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=152&forum=14

Now go to the Littlerock Plains, and go to the very south part of the map where you will see a cave: http://www.amaranthia.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=163&forum=14

Enter to go into Old Ways. Explore and you will find a locked door. http://www.amaranthia.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=170&forum=14 You will automatically try the key in the door and enter the Lost Library.

I am going to lock this topic. It's too easy for people to scan through, not find what they want immediately, and tack a question onto the end, forgetting where they are and that there's a whole forum just waiting for their questions :)

 

If anyone has questions WITH answers that they feel should be added here, please PM a mod, who can take care of it.

 

If anyone has questions that AREN'T answered here, please start up a new thread - you deserve your own spot, not to be hidden away inside a completely unrelated topic :)
