View Full Version : Any Miners for my Keep?
Sat, 25th Nov '06, 2:19am
I had those miners I rescued from Old Owl Well's Orc lairs, but now the leader up and left me for some reason; said he was going to Amn.
I didn't think much of it since I had the woman from Port Llast, but apparently she's just a merchant, and my weapon master now says he needs a local ore supply again.
I've looked all over the place and haven't found any other miners... any idea where I should look?

I'm not as far as you in the game yet, but I seem to remember a miner in Port Llast. I think her name is Chalindra, and since her hubby's dead, she might be willing to help you out.

Yeah, that's the woman I'm talking about. I have her, but she seems to deal only with the sales side of things and not the actual mining... Darn it! :)

You might check the bioware boards. I seem to remember someone posting a full list of workers for the keep. I didn't open it, being that I'm not at that point in the game yet and didn't want to spoil it, but it might be worth a gander in your case.
Edit: here's the thread I was referring to. I haven't read it, so not sure how good it is. But here it is anyhow: http://nwn2forums.bioware.com/forums/viewtopic.html?topic=522733&forum=110

Hmmm... According to thread over there, Calindra should be a miner too. Not sure why the weaponsmith said he needs a local supplier then...
I didn't see anybody mention Pentin leaving though.

From some of what I've read, it seems that if you don't keep your folks "happy" that they will up and leave on you. Of course, this is definitely the blind leading the blind here, since I've not experienced this for myself yet :p

Apparently in chapter two you can only do two weapon upgrades. You can do more in chapter three when you find more ore.
I got the armorer and he's got enough supplies so *shrug*. Just poor clarity in the dialog I guess.

yeah I'm stuck on this as well I saved teh miners before I even knew about the keep & then also have talked to that lady in the inn in port llast & she keeps telling me she's waiting for her men to meet her or some such & the other miners who who knows where & I can't upgrade my armys gear b/c of this & i'm in act 3 and probably drawing close to the end of it now.

After you save Pentin and his miners, they show up in Old Owl Well.
For Calindra, you have to find her husband. He happens to be somewhere in the Duskwood.

yes I know I've already done that & I've found them...turns out are in the fields area which I usually don't travel much I just by pass them via wolfs minions. Anyhow so now that I've found them they have no ore and want me to find a mine...but I have no options for one anylonger. I am in Act III going to meet Sydney Natale.
So I think my greycloaks will never see gear upgrades :( Unless someone knows where or how to find a mind at this point?

There is apparently more ore to be found in chapter 3 (though I'm still in chapter 2). You just need to look for it in any caves you come across. When you find it, click on it and you'll get 50 XP :)

So I'm in chapter 2 and with the ore I've find since the beginning of the game I've been able to give my soldiers 2 weapon upgrades and 1 armor upgrade. Does that sound right for chapter 2, or does it seem that I've missed some ore deposits?--I'm assuming the game is remember all of the ore deposits I've clicked on over the course of the game and using those in the mining activities.
Sun, 26th Nov '06, 5:49am
I believe I was able to do two of each armor and weapons.
Sun, 26th Nov '06, 7:10am
yeah I've been looking since I've been in Act III and I've yet to go into another cave short of the Ironfists & there isn't any there that I've found so far.
Anyone in Act III yet and know where some can be found if any?
Sun, 26th Nov '06, 7:43am
From what I've been able to glean on the bio boards, you should be able to do 2 of each in act II. Unfortunately there's a bug in one of the orc caves where sometimes one of the ore deposits doesn't give you xp when you click on it. I bumped into that bug, so I'm guessing that's why I didn't get to do the second armor upgrade.
That said, it seems there's plenty of ore in act III to make up for this, so I'm not going to worry about it too much.

@ BTA :
Yeah, the same just happened to me, but I happen to have a lot of diplomacy, so I talked him into staying. Don't know where you can find some other miner though...
I started chapter 3, and so far I found three sources in the fire giant mountain : one near the bottom/left sentry tower, one in the main camp, and one in the dragon's lair.
And does someone know how you can get Ogren (or something like that, a character from West Harbour) for your keep as a farmer?
Mon, 27th Nov '06, 3:43pm
You're talking about Orlen, and you just have to go to West Harbor to ask him. Without posting any spoilers, you need to do this pretty quickly after getting your keep or you'll miss the opportunity.
Mon, 27th Nov '06, 10:41pm
Yeah, I kinda figuered I couldn't get him since he died in West Harbour... ;) Damn it! Juste when my cleric had resurrection!

The half-orc miner will at some point threaten to leave if you haven't found him enough ore to mine. The trick is to have Khelgar in your party when you have this convo. Choose the Intimidate option and, if you fail (as I did), Khelgar backs up your threat and the half-orc sticks around.
