Found out you can reach 200 honor in about a minute by continually greeting Rakeesh. Working as intended or exploit? Would be nice to get an answer from the designers, cause i would like to finish the game the way it was intended to be played, in order to get the full experience.

Might as well be working as designed, because you can definitely reach 200 honor by spamming flower-gifts in the original.

Wow! That was a fast response Sandsai but it doesn't really answer my question. And yes, i do have a choice of not spamming it, but is it a bug or working as intended? I mean you can spam climbing or throwing rocks for increasing your stats and that's the way it was designed right? As for what Ulmont said, yes you can spam flowers in the original but that means you got to spend money buying the flowers in the first place. Spamming greet doesn't cost anything at all.

It shouldn't rise that fast, but it's more of an oversight than a bug. Still, onto the "to-do" list it goes. Please let us know if you find any other instances like this when playing.

Thank you for the swift answer AGC2! I am so thrilled with this wonderful remake and you guys have done a great job honestly. I just liked it so much i guess that i wanted to play it the way the designers meant it to be played so i don't ruin this wonderful roleplay experience.

Yeah, I found this last night when I noticed my honor stat mysteriously going up after greeting Rakeesh. I imagine the conversation goes something like this:

Me: "Can I be a Paladin? Am I honorable enough?"

Rakeesh: "No, not yet young adventurer. You must first seek to-"

Me: "Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!"

Rakeesh: "Will you shu-"

Me:"Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi!"

Rakeesh: "Oh, darn it, FINE, you are the most honorable of all. I'll let you be a paladin if you'll just SHUT THE HELL UP ALREADY!"

Me: "Hi!Hi!Hi!Hi! Oh... okay, thanks. Bye!"

Paladins ARE a pretty whiny sort, after all...

That actually takes a while to max out but it is certainly easier than the ordinary approach of just chatting around with the town's regulars.

Communication is really the only skill I've ever spammed, both in the QfG2 remake and QfG3. Basically, it's only because I'm cheap - I want access to the lowest bargain price as soon as possible. I am curious if Communication is the only factor in your minimum price in the bargaining system, though. Does anyone know if anything else factors in?

not quite, your biggest bargain is completly done independently of your communication skill

I mean *censored* and it's 90% price reduction with startup communication level

Overall that one is a pretty minor spending compared to the pills, man, the pills.

Getting a 40% discount on stamina pills is great. I certainly burn through more than 50 dinars of stam pills.

Some can come close to or even reach 50%. I've checked. Most 100 centime items can go as low as 55 centimes, a 45% drop.

Can't be the only one. My thief somehow pissed off Issur (c'mon, he can't PROVE I robbed him, and those could be ANYONE'S bellows that I sucked up that air elemental with) and Issur refused the bargain prices he used to accept from me earlier.
