Possible to find Thaler guilty & lose a valuable Act II resource - Don't talk to the Mysterious Man at his house[edit source]

As I've played before, I know Thaler isn't the guy and that he's quite handy. But this time through, I was at the third step in Vizima Confidential; I'd cleared Vincent Meis as a suspect (but had yet to let him know) in Suspect: Vincent Meis; I was at the "lack of evidence" steps in Suspect: Vivaldi and Suspect: Thaler; I had no other suspect quests yet. I went to Thaler's house one night to sell some loot (he's so useful that way.) The mysterious man was inside talking to him. I clicked the man, got 100 xp as he said something about not saying I'd seen him there, and my Suspect: Thaler quest updated from the second step, lack of evidence, to a third step, Guilty. It said I should pressure him. If I did so, he told me to "Fark off" and refused to deal with me anymore, even after coming back into his house. So be careful - shame to lose your 24/7 loot buyer and richest poker opponent. Luckily I saved before I talked to him about it, so I got to keep him as willing to trade and play with me by simply never talking to him about Salamandra after that, but later when I intentionally led the autopsy in Anatomy of a Crime to implicate Ramsmeat or Azar Javed my Suspect: Thaler quest didn't update to show his innocence. I'm running the 1.3 patch, if that makes a difference. Licensed Luny 22:58, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the replies. I did eventually get him back to innocent after telling him the autopsy (restored from a save) identified Javed. I just thought it might be worth mentioning here, since I didn't realize you could make him guilty. And talking to him about it means he stops dealing with you ... gotta unload all those Temerian Steel Axes I get at night, pain to wait for daybreak when the blacksmiths are awake. 68.34.2.193 02:18, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Proving Thaler innocent[edit source]

  • Speak with everybody about Thaler
  • Never accuse Thaler
  • Click on that Mysterious Stranger at night
  • Speak with Thaler and repeat that you trust him

OR

  • Just have sex with Shani (it really should work)

Clearing anyone[edit source]

In my experience, it takes 3 "I believe you"s to three different lines of dialogue (one each, not nine!) to clear any given suspect (especially since we all know now who did it). How you get there can vary quite widely. Game widow 23:36, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
