Found all four chapters of "The History of the Chantry," by Brother Genitivi.
This is missable. Chapters 1, 2 and 4 can be found by visiting the Chantry during each Act. I recommend that you make visiting the Chantry your priority upon starting each Act so that you do not forget to do this.
Note: Chapter 3 is missable and is only available during the quest "Following the Qun" during Act II. After traveling to the Chantry at night, you will encounter a cut-scene where you discover Saemus' fate. Immediately after the cut-scene ends, use your targeting wheel by pressing to pause combat. The book will be on the podium overlooking the ground level of the Chantry. Select it with the targeting wheel to pick it up. You may also be able to grab it in between breaks in the combat if you missed it the first time, but it will be more difficult. If you are unable to pick it up before the cut-scene begins, simply reload your last autosave and try again.
Okay question, I went through and found all 4 chapters like the achievement says to do but when I gathered the last one the achievement didn't unlock, I checked my guide book and it says that you can't get one of the chapters till act 2 so my question is, anybody else have this problem?
First Book ~ Act 1 ~ In chantry during daytime (No quest needed)
Second Book ~ Act 2 ~ In chantry during daytime (No quest needed)
Third Book ~ Act 2 ~ In chantry during (Follow the Qun) Save before entering the Chantry You can only get this during the null in battle. Fight next to the alter, and just keep trying to pick it up during the fight. If you can't RELAOD Save and do it again.
Fourth Book ~ Act 3 ~ In chantry during daylight (No quest needed)
hey BigGay, in act3 go to the chantry (make sure its day) go to the back, up the stairs to the left, left from the top of the stairs, thru the pillars, on top of some crates is Chapter 4. If u still can't find it then you may have progressed the story too far.
For the one during 'Follow the Qun', where is the book? The battle with the Arishok in is not in the Chantry. I just went though a playthrough, but had missed the previous books. I decided to find it during the battle but couldn't. Any help?
Hey @4 when you're in the chantry in the fight you can hold LT and target the book to select it and act on it ;) quite useful to know hope it helps save people some time! Also thanks for the locations were a great help found the one I missed!
For those worrying about trying to grab the chantry book during the Arishok fight, if you use your radial menu, you'll find that there is a circular redicule in the middle of the menu. The player can use it to target an object, hit A, and then as soon as you close the menu, the player will interact with the selected target. This let's you pick things up and open things, even in combat.
