Problems with knowledge

18 posts in this topic

Posted

Hey,

 

I am a fan of searching every bit of the map for stuff to discover. And I basically like this knowledge system. But there is a big problem: You simply don't get some knowledge. And it is annoying the shit out of me. This is some kind of rage and some kind of bug report and some kind of "what da heck am I doing wrong?!" thread.

 

Bleeker Fish: I was sitting there for hours trying to catch this fish, but no way there is one in this whole river. Did you ever catch one?

Extraction Mill: This should be gained just by getting there, but nope, I did not get it. I totally don't know, what I have to do to gain that knowledge.

Swamp Naga Commander: This one is the most annoying one. There are only 2 on the map with around 300 "distance" to each other. You can run from to the other and just see them spawning. So I ran and ran and ran. Killed a shit ton of em and just killed them for hours, but nope. No way I'm getting the knowledge.

Harpy Abductor: The moment I was writing Abductor, I finally got the knowledge...

 

Seriously, there should be some kind of progress thing somewhere. Or did I miss something? How am I supposed to get these things other then blindly running around to find the trigger. I am a perfectionist and this is killing me -.-"

 

BTW: I love this game, these are just small things and maybe not important for others, but when I see a game like this, where so many small things are done perfectly, than I got the feeling to qq about stuff like this.

 

Greetings.

This is where you can find the knowledge for the Extraction Mill. Talk to the guy who I indicated with a red arrow (see picture) and accept the quest named "Extraction Mill". Once accepted, you'll instantly gain knowledge on the Mill, and you complete the quest simultaneously. The quest costs 5 energy which shouldn't really be a problem.

Edit: The NPC's name is Di Lanoa

Did you ever find the Bleeker? I am having a hell of a time finding him, I've put in a combined time of probably 10 hours.

Bleeker is a fish type.  Look at the oceans, see the little fish symbol under the '?' marks?  Now look next to Barossa, you can faintly see the same mark in the grass.  Get fishin'

Any tips on why My "People of Calpheon" wont show as completed even though I have every listed NPC found and all energy awarded. (only thing bugging me is the "?" in the area near the banker and Rubin.)

Thanks Minkey! :D 

Really helped, thought I would get this knowledge by using the extraction mill tool minigame. But after like 15 times I stopped.

Swamp Naga Commander is obtainable. Sure there are only two and getting the grade is random with a low %, but it is possible. Just have to keep at it. (i have all naga grades)

The same for fish, low % when you catch one, just have to find the right place to catch them and some fish are just rare of you need better fishing skill to get it.

RNG will hit people in different places, but if you want the knowledge just keep at it.

As for other knowledge, you can get it from all sorts of methods - going to location, talking to random npc, amity game to unlock it, and so on.

I like that it is tough, it is something to work toward and energy cap is important.

You also get knowledge from bookshelves, random no-name NPCs (random as in generic villager/soldier without any icons above their heads, wouldn't even know but I'm spamming R too much) and other various world objects. 

I think there's an area with 3 Nagas and 4th in the little swamp island near the node manager west of the town. Prolly some more lukring around. Still, took me 1h+ to do em.

Use the internet maybe? BDPDB has the info on how to get all knowledge's. I have all topography/ecology/ocean/characters completed. >_>

Just keep grinding and reference the DB for any missing knowledge. You may need to dig a bit for some info though.
