Are items found in chests random or fixed?
I really need a nautilus scroll to be able to complete a quest where I need to reach the Alchemist.
Unfortunately, I only had one & used it to access the other room that needed it.
I have toured the island best I can for my lvl - Looted all chests that I was able to open - gone back to all merchants over & over again - they never seem to have anything new.
So now I'm stuck & can't graduate from the monastery - it's most frustrating.
Even though I don't usually use them, I even looked up cheats to try & get this scroll, but they won't work for me either.
I'm a golden oldie & not at all tech savvy, like I need to ask a 5 yr old how to work most techy things :)
I guess I must be doing something wrong :(
Another thing that annoyed me, is the guy in the bandit camp that teaches lockpick - every time he saw me coming he laid down by the fire to sleep & just said 'I'm trying to sleep'. Any time of the day or night he did this - & that was before I joined the opposition & was technically still helping the Don. Now I can't find anyone to teach me lockpicking to lvl 3. Am I missing something?
Items in chests are fixed and not random. You ought to be able to buy Nautilus transformation scrolls from Ilumar in the monastery or Cormac at the bandit camp (from Chapter 2 on). Patty, on the beach outside town can teach you lockpicking to level 3 as well (also from Chapter 2 on). Quests from Ilumar and his students should also be able to help you create your own Nautilus Transformation scrolls, if you're aligned with them.
