Tips and Misc

Walkthrough

Talk to Tara.

Four wings

Clear all four wings and pick up the required books in each. Another book can be found in each wing that enables the completion of an optional.

  • The required book, "Fundamentals of Magic", in the north wing can be found by searching the small tables throughout the area. A clue to its location can be found in the card catalog which is located with a set shrines in a room of the main stacks. The Bookwyrm can be found in another room on the north side of the north wing.
  • The required book, "1001 Jokes for Silly Sorcerers and Wacky Wizards" in the south wing at the top of the winding ramps.
  • The Central Thesis can be found in a small room off the east wing but you must first gather crests to activate the moving platforms. You can pull the levers to allow less agile characters an easy route.
  • Tarent's Memoir can be found among Tarent's classmates in the west wing along with a set of shrines.


End fight
  • If you talk to The Librarian he will tell you that a successful speech generally includes the following elements:
  1. A humorous ancedote designed to put the audience at ease,
  2. A story that connects with an important audience member by calling attention to a shared topic of interest,
  3. A brief summary of the fundamental principles underlying the subject,
  4. And last but not least, a clear and convincing central thesis.
  • Place required books on the podium.
  1. Place "1001 Jokes for Silly Sorcerers and Wacky Wizards" on the podium.
  2. Place Tarent's Memoir of his enthusiastic college friend on the podium.
  3. Place the book "Fundamentals of Magic" on the podium.
  4. Place the Central Thesis on the podium.
  • After each book, you get to fight a wave of trash and a bit of Vaspar. Probably go slow on Vaspar and careful with damage over time effects, the quest can be rendered uncompletable with Vaspar alive with negative HP (not clear why).
Optional fights
  • Crushing Details can be found behind a secret door in aisle IV of the north wing.
  • Bookwyrm is to be found in a room on the northern side of the north wing.
