View Full Version : The elf chick's hidden runes? Huh?

11-02-2011, 10:30 PM
Supposedly the Elf chick can find hidden runes or something, or so says the manual. These can supposedly open secret areas. I'm assuming it's NOT talking about the elfstones, because anyone can find and use those, or so it seems.

Where the hell are they? So far all I am finding with her are herbs and such. The dwarf find rock things, the ranger finds footprints, but so far no runes. At least I didn't find any in the first big multi-stage dungeon...

You see them occasionally on walls.

The ones I found had blue lit design on the wall, kind of swirly.

You go to the wall and "investigate". She says a few words and presto room opens with loot. I haven't seen anything extra special but I think its random loot so you might luck out with something really good?

Could someone please take a screen shot of these? I'm just not seeing any, at all.

I ran back to the Barrow Downs to snap one for you as that was the only one I could remember the location to lol

I hope this helps!

Sweet! That is perfect. It's actually pretty big, then. Do you recall if there were any in Fornost?

I am pretty sure there was 1 but can't remember where in the sequence it was. I know it was in one of those alleyways you go through like towards the beginning part and it was on the right hand side of the alley. Maybe someone can help you better.

No worries, I was planning on running back through anyway one last time with each character. I'll see what I can find. Thanks!

I had to go back to fornost as I was looking for the ore for that side quest grrrr it was a last ditch effort ....

anyway, the secret room can be found right after you speak to the elf twins (after beating the first troll). They will want you to follow them down an alley of sorts... it is the same area you meet your first war machine. The secret room is on the right about halfway down the alley.

If you mean the mithril ore,

I believe this ore is found along the route into Mount Gundabad, which I believe would be considered near the beginning of Chapter 4

I looked all through there :(

You are playing the dwarf right? I am wondering if only the dwarf can find it.

Late reply, but I was pretty sure I did not have to use my secret wall breaker to get the ore. I do however frequently use the "Q" button and always scour every area in the opposite direction as the direction icon prior to moving forward, and it's possible I found it in a slightly off the beaten path area.

Can we please stop calling her an elf chick. The appropriate phrase is elven chick. Thank you.
