Love has a Price Objectives

  1. Pay for the prostitute and meet her upstairs



Love has a Price Walkthrough

A man named Lovirk at Driftwood tavern promises you something exotic worth trying. If you convince him via speech check or tell him a good joke about talking dogs via the Jester-tagged dialogue options, he will waive the initial fee. You will gain 3000XP for this. After he reveals his non-negotiable exotic fee of 100 gold, he will give you the key to a suite on the 2nd floor.

Use the character and enter the suite alone, then talk to the lizard and spend a night there. You will receive 6000XP. If you refuse the prostitute, you will receive 3000XP and have to try again with another character. The next morning, some thugs will suddenly show up while you are naked, demanding money. If you are Ifan ben-Mezd, the thugs will recognize you and leave. Otherwise, you will have to pay them or fight (your gear is in the burgled backpack on a table next to the bed. If you are playing as the Red Prince, then the lizard you meet will turn into the Red Princess instead. (if you are undead, the prostitute will fight with you.)

Head back down and confront Lovrik, and he will claim he did all these for his daughter. If you ask the cook, you will learn that he's lying, and you will find that he fled while you weren't there. If the cook is dead, then you won't find anything and the quest can't proceed until you kill him. Killing him grants no XP but he has a significant amount of gold on his corpse. If you did kill the thugs and confront Lovrik, you can also spare his life and the quest will conclude rewarding you a final 3000XP (after which you can kill him anyway to get the gold too, though the quest will have already been completed and the log will not update further). If you believe he has a daughter, Lovrik will flee concluding the quest but granting no additional XP.

Bug: If you use The Red Prince to engage in this quest, there is a chance that the quest will hang after the sexual encounter and Lovrik won't have any additional dialogue options for you to progress with the quest. And even if you kill Lovrik, there is a chance that the quest still won't close.


Tips & Tricks

  • Swap the key to the suite to a party member that isn't spending the night. This way you'll be able to send in your party at the start of the fight.
  • If you have already found two Teleport Pyramids you can use them to teleport to your party member. (lore friendly)
  • You gain an extra 3000XP if a party member changes their mind about spending the night with Zharah. This will upset the lizard meaning you will have to pay 100 gold to Lovrik again to try again with a new party member. The 3000XP gained only occurs once. You do recieve the normal 6000XP if you chose to sleep with her with another party member.
  • Killing the prostitute after sparing her will end the quest.
  • You can pickpocket the prostitute to get a level 11 dagger (18-19 damage).
  • If you lose your gear to the muggers and are unable to kill them you can find it in a "burgled backpack" on a table in Lohar's room.

      Max XP for Definitive Edition is 20000 XP (2000 XP for persuading Lovrik + 1000 XP for declining courtesan with 1st character + 6000 XP for sleeping with courtesan with 2nd character + 8000 XP for killing thugs + 3000 XP for letting Lovrik off the hook). Gill gives no XP so thugs only give 8000 XP (4 thugs x 2000 XP).

        with 4 group member I'd get 2000xp for accept the quest 1000 when I said no with my main (elf female) 3000 when I talked with her a little bit and made her wet, then said no (RP) -I don't remember if I get xp with Ifan when i fent in and said no and then 6000 for sleeping with her with Fain -3000 when killed Lovrik + 5x2000 for each robber then (little spoiler here) 4000 because the cook didn't like I went in so attacked me. tips: 1. If you don't get the key with another character then go up to her - she said sorry- then go back for the key and pay 2. I went to Lovrik with Fain as fourth party member and I'd got an option which meant no pay. 3. I slept with her 3 times just with Fain. First time she danced for me ...etcetc then i stood their as if nothing heppend but when i went to her she sound like we met before then I slept with her - robbers - and after it again. 4. She became a friend if you sleep with her as Fain 5. Be careful with the drunked fellows down if you attack Lovrik if you want to keep them alive so teleport the guy to the kitchen or into a bush far from the tavern.

          The description for getting the last 3k exp is a bit unclear. You shouldn't confront him saying you killed the thugs, you have to say that you had a good time. After that he doesn't run away and you can kill him for the gold (which he drops even if you pickpocketed him before that). -Aggnog

              why is no one talking abt the fact that you don't have to have the prostitute be a woman? is that a recent update to the game or something? i've always liked how the game is very neutral on sexuality, gives a lot more options. i think i remember the dialogue options even being slightly different depending on which you choose. when i played with ifan and the male lizard i feel like there was like this sub/top thing going on?? or am i just imagining things

                "If the cook is dead, then you won't find anything and the quest can't proceed until you kill him" Lovrik or the cook?

                  So after I finish the fight I'm not able to loot anything from the bag. Trying to do so bugs the game so that I can't interact with anything else or even load or quit the game-I have to ctrl alt delete out. I've tried doing it with different characters, moving the bag to my inventory and then opening it, moving it to Lady Vengeance and opening it, nothing works. I'm in honour mode and saved past the fight so I can't go back, so basically either I lose all my items or the run's over, which is pretty much one in the same given I lost any quest items, etc plus all my gear. Has anyone experienced this or know a way around it?

                    I lost the fight and found my missing gear in Lohar's room on the table (Left of the under tavern bit where the Arena is)

                      160 gold, no experience, and a firestorm grenade when killing Lovrik. You're better off pickpocketing him for 3k gold and letting him live, the lying rat. At least the quest and killing the assassins seems to have netted 10k experience, some gold, and items to sell. In order to get the 2,000 experience up front, though, you do have to persuade or "Jester" Lovrik to see the courtesan. If you bribe him, you do not get 2,000 experience(so you'll only get 8,000 for killing the assassins) you get from the other two options. I didn't see much point (or reward) to play this quest out as the Red Prince either (no assassins and it's all an illusion that doesn't even get mentioned in his journal or quest line).

                        So uh... Idk if it's still possible, but I banged the lizard chick twice lol. One time than another after, than I attempted again after the fight, or I believe it was after the fight that I was able to go a round two lol. This was a bout a year ago.

                          As a solo lone wolf, you can leave a teleporter pyramid and your gear in a container outside the suite. Drop other pyramid next to the bed. When the thugs attack, cast cryogenic stasis on Zharah, adrenaline and use teleporter on the ground. Loot gear from container, re-equip quickly and use teleporter to get back to the suite. Kill the thugs and go again with her. :)

                            If you'll have sex with him/her second time, in the game ending, it's said that you've returned to your lover in Driftwood and together you founded a new house — The house of love. I laughed really hard when I heard that, I love this game.

                              If you're a massive hoarder like me, have a character with a lighter load do the prostitute, took me ages to take all my stuff out of the backpack :v I would've thought all the poisoned fish I was carrying would make the muggers think twice about taking my stuff, and the lizard lass of offering her services, but apparently not

                                    If you choose to spare the prostitute after the fight, and choose to sleep with him again, you'll gain a Lucky Charm status for a short while.

                                      I think Lovrik is considered by the game as standard "trader", so the amount of gold he carries depends on the player level.

                                          So for me this was a weird one, I am an undead and did the undead specific dialogue with Lovrik to make him waive the fee, slept with the lizard lass and when I got mugged I used the teleport pyramids that I got from the Lady Vengeance to teleport my team into the room and kill all the muggers. Once they were all dead I spoke to Zharah again and used the fourth dialogue option followed by the "look undead" prompt to go another round with her, so to speak. Afterwards I went downstairs to confront Lovrik about the muggers but he just rattled off some line about not having money and now the same thing happens whenever I talk to him. I've tried switching to another character but all that happens is I do the prostitution dialogue path and Lovrik says she's done a runner, at least for now. At this point I might just summon a bone widow and have it eat him cos I can't progress the quest anymore -_-

                                            Having a party member change their mind in Definitive Edition v. resulted in +1000XP for me, not +3000XP. Also the most beneficial way of dealing with Lovrik is not believing his sob story and letting him walk: killing him grants no XP whereas letting him live after calling his bs grants +3000XP and the gold loot you'd get off his corpse is a tenth of the sum that you could just pickpocket off of him. (in my case anyway)
