Aye my fellow pirates. I was wondering if anyone else is having problems with the ancient tomes (companion training tomes) not working in Marleybone and in Aquila. I have completed Marleybone and have been in Aquila for awhile now and so far, I have found only 1 ancient tome that would work. None of the others I have found worked... and I do know what an ancient tome is, what it looks like, etc.

If anyone else is having this issue, please let me know. And if anyone is NOT having any issue with them, can you please let me know where you found them so I can go back now and see if it still does not work for me...most likely, it won't but I'll be able to grab screen shots which I can then upload to my bug report I submitted this morning.

I appreciate any feedback.

I have found about 4 of them 2 in AQ 2 in MB

I recall one in the Minotaur lords map at a dead end. these cost me now like 8800 gold each to buy in the tavern. I am almost done with all my companions being 60+ so far wont be but another week and there all 65 or better. The other one was in the map with Ebeneezer lower floor a room that's just past the final boss battle. These can be picked up I am sure there may be a guide on these by now ? :-)

Thanks,

Have you explorered the top of Walkie's Hotel? There is a room with a companion training tome inside. Enjoy!

To Masterryan:

Yes, I definitely know how expensive they are to buy, particularly since it seems most of the ancient tomes were broken. I found about 3 in MB, looked exactly like an ancient tome, sitting on desks, etc., I am certain they were tomes, but wouldn't work.

Also, there is a really nice guide for the ancient tomes, however, the owner has not updated the guide to include either MB or AQ.

To Brave Steven:

Thanks, I will go back to Walkie's Hotel and see if I missed that one. I did get 1, and I'm thinking it was that one. I believe there should be more than 1 in MB and 1 in AQ, and I have only found 1, and am done with MB.

To Both:

What I am actually trying to find out if anyone else has run across these books lying on desks, etc, that look exactly like ancient tomes, but they'd don't sparkle and you can't pick them up. I found 3 like that in MB, and I wish I had documented where I found them, but sadly, I did not.

Right Fielder, The name of the guide is Illustrated Guide to Ancient Tomes, and was created by Calico Jill. Here is the link, and I just checked and still no update for MB or AQ. I did find the one in Walkie's Hotel, but so far, that's the ONLY one. I find it annoying when K I in their updates section mentions having more ancient tomes to pick up and did so in such a way, one wouldn't think there is only 1.

Chryssis, Thank you so much, I will replace the guide I have with this new one. I have to say that K I really left much to be desired for the number of training tomes to be found in MB and AQ, when compared to how many there were in all previous worlds... only 1 in MB and 1 in AQ.
