Rerolling to a new EW character: Lots of small questions!

Post by That_Axe » Thu Feb 23, 2017 5:43 am

Hello.

I was playing this game as an SG critter before I decided to reroll for a new game due to messing up a lot of quest-lines.

I'm going to try out doing EW critter for my new run. Hopefully this new character will finish the game. I have a lot of questions hoping to find some answers here:

1. What's the best way to get caps? Aside from one time quests, caravans, did I miss some merchants who has more than 1,000 caps after a restock? I kinda got the pedo gunshop owner whacked- Does he restock with more than 1,000 caps?

2. Do we have some kind of list for time-sensitive quests? I know Anonym's kill the soldiers quest is somehow time-sensitive.

3. Do we have a list of new weapons' skill types? For example I thought that the anti material rifle was a small gun type because it's a sniper. Turns out it draws its aim from BG skill. How about those grenade launchers?

4. Is there any other option for the Caravan Meeting quest? I just got one leader killed. I had no other option to warn him or get info about the hit.

By the way really awesome mod!

Edit: Oh, and tips for early energy weapons? I was thinking of rushing to Empire to get that free plasma pistol on one of the desks inside the "palace". Is there an earlier energy weapon available that I missed?

What do you mean by SG and EW critter?

I think Chuck has a chance to restock above 1000 caps. I don't remember precise numbers. Anyway traders in Albuquerque (that is Chuck and Margaret) have largest stock of caps among all the traders.

Best way to earn caps is by completing quests. Caravan runs are good way too. Anyway, I don't think you need to hoard the caps. Don't try to get all operations from the hospital, just choose most important ones for your character.

I think that's the only one.

Grenade launchers are big guns as well. It's mentioned in their description as well as in description of anti-material rifle.

You can either send Frederyk to the meeting (that leads to quests from Sedit Caravan) or you can go in the meeting in his place, just talk to him, he'll suggest that (and that leads to quests from Frederyk's Dream).

Thanks for the quick reply!

EW = energy weapons
SG = small guns
Critter = Critical hit based character

Who is Margaret again? Is she the lone Empire trader?

I know I don't need all the operations, but I just can't ignore the whispers of the min-max devil hovering above my shoulder!
