Hello, I'm nearing the end of the game I think and I'm trying to recruit Eloins but I'm having issues. I have no idea where to look because there's no labeled map or markers showing where to go. People sometimes mention waypoints in relation to towns but I have no idea where they are. I followed the river to the hidden temple in the swamp and fought all the way to the top (or so I thought) only to find dragon scales and no Eloin. The enemy encounter rate is way too high which has me dreading going back in to try to find them again. Did I miss something? I also haven't found the crowbar or sledgehammer and I did come across a pile of rocks in the temple. Are they hiding in there? I did try to start the last encounter with only one recruit (the one you give an offering to in the cave to the northwest) but they didn't show up for the battle. Is there a way to summon them or something? I get absolutely destroyed and my team is like level 65.

Hello, and thanks for the question...admittedly, VoltAge:Genesis can be a bit foggy in its directions (what can I say, I loved Rings of Power as a kid)...that being said, the best way to locate / recruit Eloin is by unlocking new characters for your party (and new townsfolk in general) and then following their storyline progression until they give you a hint about where to consider checking...in fact, the path to locating every Eloin in the game starts right in your hometown of Pedregal Springs. That being said, I can give a SPOILER-EY list below to help you track them down.

Pazuzu (Wind) - While there is one character that can put you on the path to meeting Pazuzu in Pedregal Springs, he's quasi-secret and not necessarily a guaranteed "get"...most people will start this quest when they speak to the old lady standing in the ruins in the NE corner of Accoro Village (the farming village north of the massive verdant plains area N of the road to the western mountains). Follow her instructions, progress through the caves, and get ready for a NASTY fight!

Yer Tanri (Earth) - Speak to the Gardener in Pedregal Springs (near the fountain), and track down each of the three types of produce he asks you for (Cave Mushrooms, Medicinal Herbs, and Bizarre Fruit) once all three quests have been completed, speak to him again. You should have little difficulty tracking down the Eloin of Earth with his assistance.

Nanshe (Water) - Once you start the quest to locate Eloin, examine the monument near the fountain in Pedregal Springs to start the quest (if Zach and Casey have moved to your town, they will give you hints to check out the area as well). Once you reach the temple in the mountains (which it sounds like you did), you need to go to the deepest section of the caverns under the temple...the dragon scales you refer to are at the top. Just keep following the glowing statues, and you should locate the Seed in no time...but, consider bringing some StealthGens to avoid those tough fights along the way!

Jack Frost (Ice) - Completing all of the quests from Nyla (the pink haired Scavver) will eventually end with her family's store having many of the best pieces of gear money can buy (including the Crowbar you asked about) at that point, she will suggest speaking to Amelia, back on Mateyo. Catch a ride from New Panavinto back to Mateyo, and complete the quests involving Boomer variants in the area, then use a Crowbar to pry open the broken elevator and descend into the sub-levels of the military base. When you get to the end, you will face off against Jack Frost, the Eloin of Ice. Incidentally, if you want to save some cash, there is a Crowbar hidden in the left-most storeroom of the Konolo Ruins base.

Azazel (Dark) - While you're on Mateyo, you may want to pay your old friend Azazel (the Eloin you met at the end of the first major storyline arc on the island of Mateyo) a visit back in St. Joseph's Road (the abandoned temple). Be sure to bring a strong light source, or you may be in trouble.

Taranis (Electric) - Once you have recruited several other Eloin, Taranis will automatically appear as soon as you enter Pedregal Springs and challenge you to a battle. Admittedly, this can be one of the nastier Eloin battles because you might get denied an opportunity to do much prep work, but I believe in you! Defeat Taranis to obtain his relic and (maybe) a powerful spear as well.

Ogoun (Fire) - Upon defeating Taranis, you will receive a hint as to where you should go to track down Ogoun, the Eloin of Fire...search for him in the ruins of Oca Ronga, the city where the southern portion is blocked off do to constant gunfire. Once you track him down, you'll have to fight Ogoun, but he is very similar in strength and tactics to Taranis, so he should present a minimal threat.

Poimandres (Holy) - Once you have completed all of the quests from Delphine (the monk trapped by the cave-in at Rieldara Valley) speak to her again at her usual hangout near the fountain in the center of Pedregal Springs. From there, it should be fairly easy to acquire the powers of Poimandres, the Holy Eloin.

And there you have it! To answer your other question, there is a mercenary in the the cave system just S across the lake from Estancia (the abandoned town NE of the starting area) who will sell you a Sledgehammer once you have returned from your first trip to Mateyo. Failing that, you may get it as a drop / steal from a Steel Legion Fighter, though not all variants of them will be carrying one. As was stated before, Nyal's father will sell a Crowbar once you get the final upgrade to their shop, or you can find one in the Kanolo Base.

Equipping the Eloin's relics will grant you the ability to use a powerful spell associated with their element while also granting you immunity to damage from that element; if you have recruited enough Eloin for them to feel like they have a chance, they will show up and deal a large amount of damage to the final boss to give you an edge.

Hi, Thank you for the list I was stuck there too and it really helped. I'm still a bit stuck for the Ice Eloin though. I fixed the elevator in Kanolo HQ some times ago, and more recently in the game I fixed the Boomer problem and the hole was they came from was filled. It's only after that that I talked to Nyla in Pedregal Spring and she told me to go talk to Amelia  but Amelia has dissapeared since the Boomer quest. When I take the elevator in Kanolo HQ, I access Kanolo B1 but I can't go through the electrified field and there seem to be boxes blocking a path. All I can do is read some documents on a computer there. I'm probably missing something crucial but I'm not sure where else I should go or what else to do to progress ?

(also this is off topic but I've been unable to complete Butler's quest for Bony Plates as they don't even appear in my Items at all anymore. They did when I had 1 or 2 but after I managed to get more than 4 they dissapeared and when I talk to Butler he acts like I haven't found enough of them. It's not really a problem, as I don't think it matter that much for the rest of the story (?) but I thought I'd mention it)

I was stuck there too. Once you get to the pile of boxes, go right until just before you get to the storage room. There is a vent below you that you can go through to get to that area.

Thank you so much for the help ! I don't think I would have ever found that out by myself lol

Thank you for the heads up, I will definitely look into this and see if I can replicate the issue.

To be clear, you say you started the quest from Butler, but once you obtained more than four (4) Bony Plates they vanished from your inventory and Butler claims you do not have enough of them now. Some questions:

1) Are they still able to be dropped by the Male Shellbeasts? If so, do the new plates appear in your inventory until you gather 4, and then vanish? or do they accumulate normally?
2) Am I correct in assuming you did not receive the extended dialogue about the history of the Treehuggers from Butler? If not, then what does he say when you speak to him?

I am fairly certain I know what is causing the issue, and if I am right it is a simple fix; but unfortunately to progress with Butler's storyline in the current version it appears that the player will need to gather EXACTLY four Bony Plates before talking to Butler near the fountain in Pedregal Springs in order to complete the quest. If however you DID complete the quest (i.e. you were able to tear down the posting in the Hunter's Guild) then the lack of new dialogue from Butler is possibly caused by either A) not levelling him up enough to hit the next story point, or B) Not having enough Treehugger Lore points to obtain the Tree Coin from him, which is a required step on the way to completing his final storyline quest. Doing so will help you learn more about Butler, the Eloin, and even give some hints about where the next game in the series is heading, but will not affect the ending (though you can also get a pretty incredible sword and shield if you are paying attention).

I hate that this quest is not functioning right, and I will be starting work on a final (?) update for the game in January, so keep an eye out for more info on this in the future!

I don't remember any extended history of the Treehugger from Butler, the Quest is still not completed and the notice about it is still up on the board. When I go talk to him in town he asks me if i'm here about the bounty and then Nolan tells him we don't have all the Bony Plates. I haven't gotten any other dialogue from him and I haven't gotten a Tree Coin (idk if you can only get it if the Bony Plates quest is done or not).

I'm  not sure if the Bony Plates are still dropped by Male Shellbeasts. I've only fought one recently and it didn't drop one, I've walked around in the plains near the tunnel to Coluna for awhile but I only found the one so far. I'll try to see if I can find more but if I don't at least it's not necessary to advance the main story so it's ok.

Thanks for looking into it though !

Of course the only Eloin I've managed to recruit so far was the secret one (Pazuzu). I'll follow your guide and see if I can't find the others. I'm struggling to find medicinal herbs (I have no idea where bizarre fruit is) or where to go to complete Hunter's Guild bounties to satisfy Nyla's quest.

Medicinal Herbs can be purchased in the village on Mateyo Island or found growing in a few spots scattered throughout the game, while Bizarre Fruits can be bought from Nathan (Nyla's brother) at his pop-up store on the border of Loica (the SE checkpoint that they won't let you through). As always, keep an eye peeled for Nathan's pink hair, which is generally the only hint that you'll get when he's hiding somewhere.

You can't complete Nyla's final quest until after you have busted Nathan out of prison at the Trabunco Checkpoint; for Nyla's final quest, once she gives you the prompt to help her get permission for her family to sell Hunter gear, you just need to advance the Hunter's Guild storyline by doing quests for the captains in each of the Guilds (Coluna, Acclapata Fortress, New Panavinto, Pedregal Springs). Eventually, the Captain in Pedregal Springs will clue you in to a leader of the Hunter's Guild who is doing inspections of the Guild branches. Find him at the Acclapata Fortress branch, and talk to him. If you have completed enough "Bounty Board" quests (item fetch quests and rare monster hunts) throughout the country then he will grant you permission . Go back, talk to Nyla, and the quest is complete.
