The Enigma that is Ruby

The Enigma that is Ruby


In your travels around Astonia you will encounter that well known lady Ruby on a number of occasions.  She has a house in Aston next to Kelly and if you go there you will be shown the door in a rather abrupt fashion.  However if you have met Ruby previously in your travels, been extra polite to her, and done the favors she requested; then after doing at least two she will offer you a weapon. The weapon offered will be the one of your highest weapon skill , with 2 magical enhancements.  These enhancements can be up to +20  depending on your level and the number of favors you have done before you seek your reward.  After accepting a weapon, the favors are reset and you can  do them again to claim another weapon when your stats are higher.    The first Ruby weapon after 2 favors will have +3 stats, you need to be level 5 to use it, 3 favors, +4 stats you will need to be lvl 10 to use it.      You will always be able to use the Weapon that Ruby gives you, which may limit the stats according to your level, max +9 pre Arch

If by chance you annoy Ruby and she refuses to talk to you, She really holds a grudge and that favor is closed to you, your only recourse is to take a weapon, She then forgets all about you resetting the Favors.  If the problem occurs on your first or second favor you will have to locate and do other favor/s (to get two) to be able to accept a weapon.


Quoted from Ishtar on MB

"Ruby is a patient lady, and she does not mind (enough to change the reward) if you give the 2nd best answer. She will get angry if you insult her, though, but she's quite good at making that understood right away.
Order does not matter at all.
The bonus is limited to what you can wear, no matter how many quests you do.
Different quests give a different amount of points. You can get something like 300 points total, but these are divided down to give a result in the +1 ... +20 range, so rounding may yield confusing results."
