The Julanar (tree) quest is optional in the remake, and even buying the saurus is optional, just like it was in the EGA game.

If you didn't buy the saurus, he won't be present at the end ceremony. And the characters who normally commend the Hero for performing actions relating to the saurus/tree will omit those lines in their end speeches if you didn't do them.

In the event of buying the saurus but not making the dispel potions, the original game covered this by saying that the dispel potion used in the end ceremony is a special one made by Harik for the occasion. Ours differs slightly, in that if you made the potions then you'll use your own. Whereas if you didn't, Harik will still make a special one for the occasion.

It's important to distinguish between not buying the saurus versus repeatedly refusing to buy a saurus from Ali Fakir; because the former, which is possible only if you don't encounter Ali Fakir on Day 2, was possible in the original, but the latter -- intentionally not buying the saurus several times while encountering Ali Fakir -- results in your death and the game ending. Did the VGA Remake also take this into account?

Yes, refusing to buy a saurus too often still results in death while it's still possible to avoid buying a saurus if you don't leave the city.

so how, when and why did the game end exactly if you didn't buy the saurus?

the only logical point i could say was that you died of exhaustion on the caravan or something, but i do remember you walking on the ground with the saurus next to you in the caravan, but i imagine you would get tired and ride the saurus some of the time too. Is using the Saurus avoided by walking to Raseir? Could the game be beaten without going with the Caravan to Raseir?

Also I think the ending should leave out the part with the dispel potion if the character didn't make one... that just seems more fitting to the qfg universe, if you didn't do optional, you missed out on something...

also, does helping the tree effect the plot or the ending?

You don't ride the same saurus that you bought on the caravan. You are given a different saurus.

why does the saurus stay? I think you are right though, I vaguely remember a graphic with a different colored saurus when you go with the caravan...

Aziza wants to study the magic on the Saurus, so you're loaned a generic (and real) saurus
