So I found out after the fact that you cant get a golden idol from the "Escort Duty" quest unless you have already completed the "Chasing Shadows and Land of Opportunity". This is the only chance that you get to obtain the Golden Idol. If anyone can send me the golden idol so i can make a copy i would be in your debt forever.

Take any item to the Black Cat

That won't work. Forgeries are purely cosmetic. They don't possess any of their original powers/stats. Those items are only used to complete quests by fooling NPCs. And they usually will see through it.

The black cat actually duplicates items without a tag saying that its a duplicate item. It works the exact same as the real one.

The golden idol can be obtained as said above.
The silver idol can be obtained via a Notice board quest in the Guild Pawn.
Don't know about the bronze.

So lucky. I have just randomly found the bronze idol in the Witches house in Witchwood

I found the bronze sitting in the old Arisens house/cave on one of the tables.

I'm willing to be a hub for idol trading if we can get a Golden idol. I know how bad it sucks to miss a one time item and have no idea you just did.

Just to clear up, because some of you werent sure about duplicates from the Black Cat:

In fact pretty much most of the duplicates works just as fine as the original, that includes materials, important quest items and so on. Some items though, like the Ferrystones dont work. Never tried a Wakestone but i guess it doesnt work either.

The golden Statue on the other Hand works fine, but adds the possibility to give it as a present to Fournival.

Thanks for clearing that up. I had heard several times that the items didn't work at all. I was just going by what other players had said though. I never actually used this option yet since I'm fairly early in the game. Sorry for spreading any misinformation.

Something got messed up then. Basically the girl has to have a perfect day. You have to find her fast, have water on hand for her, and let her win the race, but just barley.

Here you are, destined hero of Gransys, catering to a little girl so that you can get the quality gear to do it. Ironic, I know.

forgery won't work because they know it is a forgery. You can still give it to him/her but only the bronze idol stuff unlocks not gold.

dupe your savegame (usb), release pawn with present, play with your old copy.

Should work?

That actually might work with 2 different saves :omg gotta try it now!

I didn't have water on hand, had to go back to the inn for it. Still got the gold idol.

handing in a forged golden idol will complete the quest, but you will NOT get the same weapons as you would have if you handed in the real idol. Forged idols have a value less than bronze. So you wont even be getting the weapons you would have if you handed in the bronze statue. It will be worse

and yes duping items via 2 storage devices does work. I did it all the time. Sometimes though, the item you send to people goes through as a rock for some reason.

Just a quick tip: You do NOT have to have done the "Chasing Shadows" quest to get the idol, I have not done it on this playthrough, yet have obtained the golden idol.

So I can't duplicate these stupid bugles that I need for the notice board quest?? Damn it :(

Actually I think you can. It seems to work on items needed for notice board quests. I recall reading a topic that recommended doing that for the Seeker Tokens. I haven't tried it myself though since I'm broke right now and only need a couple more to complete it. I hope it works out for you. If not you could always use the sleeping at the Encampment method I mentioned in that other topic. That should work but might end up costing more that forging them. I haven't looked into what the Black Cat charges. I just know it fluxuates based on the rarity of the item.

Yea alucard is right, you can dupe the bugles and seekers tokens if you want, but thats going to cost you lots of money. Honestly, I wouldnt even worry about those 2 notice board quests. If you still need to play ng+, the counter for your board quests carries over, and simply redoing the board quests will count towards your 50

CelticWarriorDB

Flip, really? Oh cool, I might just do that. The main reason I wanted to do it was for that sword you get called 'soultaker.' I wanted it to go towards the weapon/equipment achievement, and it sounds like a good weapon to have.

I tried that, and I slept there 10 times and it never respawned. Not only that, the bag that had the items completely vanished at one point, and still has yet to come back. This game really didn't want me to have those bugles lol

BTW, it costs around 8800 gold per bugle. Personally I'm almost at 5 million gold, so I could've afforded it, but that would take a long time.

Wow that much? That's insane. And don't worry too much about Soultaker. It's really not that good of a weapon if you're more than a few hours into the game. All of the quest reward weapons from the notice boards seem to be cool looking (often sporting really cool gold paint jobs) but are pretty underwhelming stat wise. Just from what I've noticed thus far. There might be one at some point that is amazing, but I haven't encountered it yet.

I hear ya. You never know. You might end up completing it at some point. Since you can find those bugles all over the place. That's the nice thing about notice board quests. They never fail. So you can keep them even into the post game I believe.

The Soultaker, seems to fall under the category of "made from alchemick metal", like all the Gold versions of most weapons. Going by the description, they are just functional/fashionable items that are best sold for a decent chunk of gold.

If anyone still has 1 or 2 golden idols to gift, I would appreciate it. I totally screwed up the escort mission (actually the little girl would not appear) and now I'm at the point of the game where these idols are needed.

I've got a gold idol 'forgery' if you're interested? I'm not sure if it makes a difference that it's a forgery and not real, but it's yours if you want it, let me know:)

There is a difference: the forgery one also reduces shop prices by 30% but cannot be used to complete the quest "Idol Worship" nor "Supplier Demand" :(
