Spells -- Earliest/Cheapest to buy


Recommended Posts

Based on the data from Randomizer and others (and the game), here's a list of the cheapest place to buy each spell. In cases where you can buy the spell meaningfully earlier at a more expensive price, I've also listed those -- but there are surprisingly few!

 

The numbers in parentheses refer to the price "rate" of the seller (Extremely Cheap is 0, Utterly Ridiculous is 6). I don't have actual prices handy.

 

EDIT: behold lilith's lazy table fix. thanks lilith

Just realized, this says Dispel Barrier is purchased in Ft. Dranlon, but it's actually obtained in Fort Emerald.

 

Edit: the list above also seems to indicate it's possible learn the top three Mage spells at Fort Remote...which I don't think is possible.

 

It is possible.

 

 

Thompson's hiding underneath Fort Remote and will teach them to you after you find him. You gotta get and follow up on a quest to find him before it's possible, though.

Wait, now the list doesn't mention Erika for the top-level mage spells...does Erika charge way more than Thompsonor something? Also, I just reached Erika, and she A. taught me those spells and B. gave me the quest to find Thompson...so it seems like I must get to her before I have a chance of seeing Thompson...which means I might as well buy the spells from her...? Am I missing something again?

There's a steep reputation requirement (55) to get training from Erika; it's quite possible to see her long before meeting that requirement. Also, I think you can get a quest to find Thompson from someone else as well.

Yeah, Erika has the same prices as Thompson, but he's probably accessible earlier? I guess if you wait a long time to go visit Erika (it looks like she is a prereq for finding him) that could be false, but 55 rep takes some doing. I just don't want to give the impression that Erika sells those when you find her, because I was sorely disappointed when I found her :p
