Protecting Verzano[edit source]

If you successfully protect Verzano he will run out of the warehouse (after thanking you for killing Danna & Co).
Is that it? Or can he be encountered again later in the game since he is alive (similar to Ingroed and Nonton at the Charred Barrel)?

From what I see in the files and own experience, yes, that's about it. He has no strings for any subsequent meeting (and it makes sense, you get the hell out of Dodge after killing the daughter of the local mob boss). Tagaziel (talk) 11:32, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Not always receiving negative rep[edit source]

Just a theory, but perhaps if you get the kills on the guards or warehouse hands with certain splash damages instead of direct damage... you don't get the negative rep from it?? Perhaps it's related to my Aloth wielding a soul-weapon?? I don't know, perhaps it's just a bug, but they don't always give negative rep when you kill them. (Tested by just going in an start slaughtering them like a madman - Danna & Co not present.)

However now that I retested it I only managed to cause it 4 times over about 35-ish kills, and only on the warehouse hands this time, sometimes (still no obvious logic to it), so I'm taking back my recent edit since it only seemed to happen rarely this second test run - probably just a bug of sorts. — AnorZaken (talk) 08:52, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Never mind. Did more testing. It indeed doesn't always trigger on the guards either. I even lose rep when Danna's lackeys kill the guards, so that doesn't solve the problem either. It just seems slightly random and arbitrary. However not dealing any damage at all seems to avoid all rep loss. (Sorry Taslterminal, I'm butchering your edit it seems... :P) (I've saved some screenshots in case anyone has doubts.) — AnorZaken (talk) 09:10, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
I think damage might be the most important factor here, all things considered. Wish we could peek behind the scenes and see how the game treats combat. Tagaziel (talk) 15:32, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Cendric Spawning Condition[edit source]

Killing Danna at The Goose and Fox inn or the Vailian Trading Company warehouse will cause her fiance, Cendric, to attack you in Copperlane.

I'd assume that it doesn't really matter whether she gets killed in the inn or the warehouse, but I never really killed her in the inn before. Killing her in the warehouse definitely leads to Cendric spawning in Copperlane.--L4wlight (talk) 09:47, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
