Sacred 2:Ogre in Distress
1. Talk to the Lonely Ogre
2. Guide him safely to the coast
As you wander the Crystal Plains in your quest for adventure, you find a rather bemused looking Ogre.
Help me to find my way home.
Hullo! me is lost. Still. Or again? Dunno, me is confused. Yes, me is. Me was out hunting with me friends! And me got lost. They say if you lost you go straight ahead until you is home. When you come to the end of the world, the hand of God pick you up and put you down on the other side of the disc. What? You not know the world's a disc? Me been walkin' straight for days and this where I be now. Help me, please!
Well it seems like a straight forward job. A brisk walk to the coast, some easy Experience and another tick in your quest journal. A nice easy job to help enhance your growing reputation as a hero.
You didn't allow for the fact that although some people have been considered to have a deathwish, this moronic Ogre cheerfully runs towards every suicidal fight that he can find!
Oh "bleep", where has that idiot gone now? If he lives long enough to reach the coast, I'm gonna kill him myself!
Thankee! Me smell sea air! Me will find way home from here alone.
Finally, you got him there. And miracle of miracles, he is still in one piece!
As you watch the "bleeping" idiot shamble cheerfully off towards the beach, you grasp your axe tightly and and fantasize about ripping his fool head off and shoving it .....................
Yes well! Thankfully you have completed the quest successfully and will hopefully never have to meet him again!
This is an extreemly difficult quest to complete successfully. The quest itself is straightforward, what makes it difficult is that unlike some npc's who can wander off and get into difficulty, this Ogre seems to try as hard as possible to get himself killed. He literally throws himself into every fight and the more impossible the odds the better.
Trying to keep him alive can get you killed in a hurry, so I found the best way to complete the quest is to not try fighting for him. Just run towards the target area on the coast as fast as you can, while watching his health bar and spamming health potions to keep him alive. Once you reach the target area, he will teleport to your side and stop attacking everything in sight.
Before you undertake this quest make sure you are carrying plenty of health potions, because not only is he suicidal, but his defence is virtually non-existent.
