The Loremaster is a Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II. Cranley Huwbert, the famous author of the Huwbert series of books, is in Arx. Can you best him in a test of knowledge? Note: This quest is not listed in your journal, but is straightforward and gives good rewards.
- Cranley Huwbert
- Challenge Cranley Huwbert to a test of knowledge.
- Answer all his questions correctly.
In Arx, you can find Cranley Huwbert in the Loremaster's house, at around co-ordinates X:387, Y:320. Speak to him.
He will laugh at you and ask you a series of questions. If you pick the "Scholar" tagged option, you can skip the first question. Other tagged options, such as the "Jester" tagged option, will not work.
The first question he will ask is: "Let's see... three major houses govern the Ancient Empire. There's the House of Law, the House of War... now, what's the third?"
- The answer to this question is "The House of Dreams".
The second question he will ask is: "In what year was our saviour, Lucian the Divine, taken from us?"
- The answer to this question is "1233".
The third question he will ask is: "Name the first king of the dwarves".
- The answer to this question is "Tenax".
The fourth and final question he will ask is: "The Sourcerer King from times of yore, Braccus Rex, had a twin. What was her name...?" Arguably, this question would be the easiest if you played the first Divinity: Original Sin game.
- The answer to this question is "Cassandra".
Answering any of his questions wrongly will result in him not inviting you to his chambers. You can try again with another character if you failed, though. If you answered all four (or three, if you picked the "Scholar" tagged option earlier) questions correctly, he will reveal a secret hatch in his fireplace and invite you to join him in his private chambers. Agree. If you decline, the result will be the same as if you failed his challenge.
Alternatively, you can simply place a book on the pile of books on the table, and it will also reveal the fireplace hatch, as shown below. However, you will still need to pass his test before you can enter the hatch and claim your rewards.
Speak to him again and he will ask you what the most darkest, most delicious nugget of knowledge you have ever come across in your time is. Simply pick any of the three options and you will receive a choice of 1 source point skillbook reward. This "quest" is effectively complete at this point. Note that the other rewards you get besides the choice of skillbook is completely random.
- Choice of 1 source point skillbook reward, upon completion.
