Herman Feresio, Calpheon Chairman

Hi! 
I have a quest "Lord of Keplan's Recommendation Letter", which directs me, to speak with Herman Feresio in Calpheon. The problem is, that I can't, because I need to reach amity 500 with 2 other guys. My question is, do i really have to farm amity, or did i miss a quest, or something, which allows me to speak with that guy?

You need to farm the amity to be able to speak with him. I did this recently, story quest ended after I talked to him... pretty annoying. 

Anyways, the Valk outside is fairly easy to get 500 amity with. It's person next to him who is a pain. He likes theology to you need to learn about it. If you hit H and go to the Theology tree, it's fairly simple to go to each NPC on the map to get at least 6 points of Theology learned. 

 

An alternative way to get 500 amity with the maN next to Herman, is to spam greets with him, although this will take forever.

Velia Believer is in the Velia Church at 5:30AM in-game time. If it's 5:30 and shes not there, run away and come back and reload the church. It's a woman sitting on the bench inside the church.

Mysterious Man is outside the south-east gate in Heidal. He is standing in a stable/building on the north side of the road.

You are suppose to talk to him and manually select the first option that costs energy. Learning knowledge costs energy. If you have already learned the knowledge from him(Check 'H'), you need to go to other NPC's marked in the knowledge menu under Academics > Theology.

I know, but he just doesn't give me any option.

for mysterious man you must complete some Heidel quests or there is a level requirement.  I do not know which or how many quests but I tried getting the knowledge on an alt who had just arrived in Heidel and there was no option. Went on my higher level main and the option was there.

@ Dary : Try reaching Apprentice And then talk to him again. I still need the knowledge from the Mysterious Man but currently my Trading is Beginner 8 and the option does not show. So I think you need At least Apprentice 1 before you can talk to him.

Where I am standing in the screenshot below is the actual Heidel Gate Mysterious Man, for Theology 1.

 

The location where the track starts is where the location of a different NPC named "Mysterious Man" (hes actually an illegal trader and can be found in many cities at night only). He is the one that doesn't seem to give you an option but it's because he's not the right NPC.

 

The religious mystery man is inside a stable almost directly east of the south east gate into town.

You have to do the Conversation mini game until you have 500 Amity.

make sure you read the requirements at the top for each session of the mini game. some tell you to fail to spark interest, some tell you to gain X amount of interest, etc. if you read all of the requirements and follow along looking at favor, maximum favor and interest, you will make the 500 easily.

Just a heads up the bddb has great tool tips on a lot of the knowledge stuff and where to go to get it.  Some really helpful comments as well

http://bddatabase.net/us/themes/theme_25017/

I will say though that the Theology topic is super annoying because of the extremely limited choices for Amity gains.  Probably going to wait till I can make Amity gain potions then work on him.

Yes Valks is easy to get through amity rewards via conversation but Theophil Batian not so much with only 7 options to pick for the amity mini game some of the requests like fail to spark 5 interactions or even trying to gain enough favour alone is hard enough if not below sub 50.

 

Regardless I just hammered him with 3 other alts and spent 400~ energy or so just saying "hi" to him over and over.  Only if real life relationships were that easy :x

Getting the 500 Amity with Valks was easy enough, as I did some adventuring and talked to what "?" marks I could, the chairman on the other hand, even after getting full Theology Knowledge, I just spammed the F1 Greet option (3 Energy for 3 Amity.) it took a few days because I didn't use a bed/elixers so, yeah, in the end the CP's was kinda/sorta worth it, I mean 320 CP isn't anything to scoff at, right...right....(Please assure me I didn't waste my time, lol....)

If you got all the cards from theology, you should be able to get +150 amity per conversation.

Just be aware that the favor and interest of the npc is random when starting a conversation.

My trading is beginner 10 still and I did all of the Theology just fine. 

Moved my alt in Calpheon Noble Dress and with 140ish energy in Calpheon and after 15 min I was done with Herman :P

Yes, my comments were a misunderstanding about the NPC. There are 2 Mysterious men in Heidel and I thought the one they mentioned was the one near the first stable and not the second one doing a "spell" in the abandoned stable outside of Heidel. You just need to have finished a few story quests in the swamp before you can gather the Knowledge of the Mysterious man.

Guy With Feathered Helmet (100%)

Lady writting (100%)

Young Red Hood Guy (95%+)

Blond Female Knight (70%+)

Young Antler Guy (95%+)

Old Red Hood Priest (forget what % he was at)

Spammed that combo and as long as i didn't get the fail 3+ times I always was able to get to last conversation. Took me 40-50 energy to get over 500.

(for the guy next to chairman)
