Secret Knowledge is a skill which allows you to gain access to extra features: it allows you to use some of the game's most powerful elixirs and to collect special quest resources from superbeings.
You can gain Secret Knowledge by finding important, historical documents which turn up from time-to-time among the piles of paper that are picked up from various hiding-places and ancient libraries.
However, most of these historical documents are written in ancient languages and only the wisest representatives of your race can read them: Pandrik and Flavviy the Wise. They will study the papers and, if there is any, tell you about the secret knowledge contained within them.
Once you have gained some Secret Knowledge, you can make use of the Old Library on the Isles of Fay-Go, where you can buy the documents detailed below. Handbooks will instruct you in the use of non-standard elixirs and Guidebooks will teach you how to acquire special resources from superbeings which you can exchange for quicksilver at the Juggernauts.
Amulets and Elixirs
Warning! Acquiring special guidebook resources has the following features:
- They drop to all levels without restrictions;
- If your level exceeds the superbeing by 2 or more, the resource you receive will be non-transferrable.
- Shizka mushrooms are always transferable, regardless of level. However, there is a greater chance of receiving a toadstool.
*These resources are non-transferable after acquiring them.
