Talk:Eternal Fire signet ring

Where is the old woman who can replace the ring?

the old woman with the ring[edit source]

It's described here, and the label which appears says "Beggar" when you mouse over her, and you may have to try several old woman beggars before you find the right one. I've usually found her in the area just south and east of the main village (sort of between the main village and the royal huntsman's camp generally) Game widow 09:49, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Beggar's Ring -> Skip Quest?[edit source]

I have trouble finding the quest that Geralt needs to do for the Reverend to get the signet ring. It had to do with the candles in the shrines IIRC. So once you have the ring from the old woman, you should be able to do all the "trust" quests, and skip one quest for the Reverend? Though I wonder how he reacts after not giving you the ring. — AEon 22:13, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

You need to talk to the Reverend first. He asks you to do a little safeguarding - a quest that is beatable, but might be challenging so close to the beginning. If you complete the quest, he will give you the ring. But if you take the ring from the old woman, you can't complete the Reverend's quest anymore (this is normal, there will be choices later on as well) - and the Reverend won't be too happy.

Getting the ring from the old woman (as far as i recall) doesn't affect the quest at all, except you don't need to pay for the signet ring. The phases of The Salamander's Tail where you need to gain the trust of Odo, Haren and Mikul are optional, so not doing them does not invalidate the quest, you just skip over a few phases in the quest. — Game widow 23:23, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
