The fastest treasure hunter ever
.v1.3 by Zarbolord
This is a guide for the Fable 3 legendary weapons achievement: We need guns, Lots of guns, and how to complete it fast if you can’t trade with other players or need chest weapons. Basically it tells you how to speed run the game to get as many weapons as fast as possible to give you more chances for the ones you’re missing. You can stop at any moment you feel comfortable, I just detailed until Millfields since the rest is straight forward.
Also just to put things straight, it’s an addition to other guides, this guide doesn’t have a weapon’s list, nor does it say any specifications about the achievement. It’s just to help with those needing rush hunts, so I will ignore all comments which don’t relate to the content in this guide. If you require that information please refer to smudged horizon’s guide, which is just above.
Rule #1: As soon as you get in an area get as many silver keys as you can, you will need 10, then 20, then 50 to be able to open the weapon chests (if you don’t want to open the 50 chest then only bother with 20, but I still find it better to open them all just in case). I will mark down the ones I got in order through the guide.
Rule #2: Rush through the story, there’s no point in doing sidequests which won’t help you (unless you need guild seals to advance, i.e. in Bower Industrial).
Rule #3: Only buy shops and pubs. On a normal amount of rent, I found that I received 100k every 5 minutes at the end of the game having bought all houses and shops, more than half of that was from shops only. So to not make this rush run of yours more annoying, just buy the shops and put them on high rent, it will cover all your expenses and not need any repairs. Certainly it might seem slower but more efficient in my opinion.
Rule #4: Ignore, absolutely ignore, all the weapons which are fixed (unless you need them but you should have had them on your main account). The Gnomewrecker will take hours, just to get all 50 gnomes, so ignore that quest entirely. The Tenderiser is, again, a waste of time if you already have one. Also no comment for the Bonesmasher, it’s on your way anyway (and could be useful to kill the hollowmen faster).
Rule #5: If you don’t get the weapons you want in the first few chests, don’t just quit and start again, my first weapons were useless to me, but then I found a few I needed further in the story so just keep going ( which is why I recommend getting that 50 silver key chest, but you don’t need to go that far if you don’t want to).
Rule #6: Always check the shops in case they sell a weapon you don’t have, you never know!
And so it begins...
Silver key 1: In parents’ tomb, on your left as you walk down the path.
When you get to Mistpeak Valley you can access the Chillbreath Caverns to get a silver key and the 1st golden key. You can also find 2 keys at the start, 1 behind a log pile, the other at the end of the slope near the monorail entrance. You can later log on with a friend or another GT account (once you get the lover and joker expression packs in the road to rule) and open the demon door in Mistpeak, which will hold your first legendary weapon.
That makes 1 weapon, 1 Golden Key and 4 Silver Keys
Brightwall will also contain a few keys. I managed to get 3 of the 5 quite quickly, including the 2 in the reliquary (the switch at the floating blocks and the door that opens when you light all the ground torches) and 1 in brightwall itself (left of the academy).
That makes 1 weapon, 1 Golden Key and 7 Silver Keys
When you reach the Mercenary Camp, you can find a silver key next to a watch tower on the hill, just at the animal cages area where you fight wolves. After that when you reach the hole you can get 2 keys, one behind crates and shelves on the right to the technician’s door, the other will require you to get the technician’s key on the left path just after the hobb arena and to run back to that door and climb the cliff.
At this point you will have 1 weapon, 1 golden key and 10 silver keys.
Just enough for the 10 silver key chest in Mourningwood, to which you’ve just arrived. When there’s a U shaped slope bend, climb it on the right and you’ll find your 2nd weapon. A little further, just before the Fort you’ll find a chest with the Bonesmasher. After the Fort get the key in the barred alcove along the hill and continue on to sunset Manor. At this point you can open the Golden door, get two more silver keys, and get the weapon from the chesty mirror puzzle. You can also find another silver key in the alcove in Mourning wood just before the Hippy Camp.
You will now have 4 weapons, 0 golden keys and 14 silver keys.
Now this is the point where it goes tiddle dee widdle dee, as when you reach Bower Industrial they give you a bit more freedom. I’d try to find 2 silver keys here and there, I suggest from the Old Quarter since they’re accessible right away (near the beach just outside the castle wall on the right behind a tree whilst looking out to the sea, and inside the house on the U bend road). You can then go to Millfields, grab the last key from The Hole behind the platform, get the key from Pepperpot Cave, another after hopping over a gate and following up the path when at the top of the hill, and the last one just before the graveyard on the left while looking in the direction of the lake.
4 weapons, 0 gold keys, 20 silver keys.
You can now run to the demon door in Millfields and open the 20 key chest on the left of it. That’ll give you another weapon. As from this point I suggest doing the Driftwood quests as quick as you can to get that 2nd golden key you need. It will be used to open the golden door in the Ossuary. I also suggest to hunt down all silver keys available and rush through the story.
These are the last things you need to do, at your own discretion:
- Open the door in the Ossuary (so do the ghost brothers’ quests too)
- Open the chest in the sanctuary room
- Open the demon door in aurora
- Open the 20 silver key chest on the left of the temple entrance in Aurora
- Open the 50 silver key chest in the castle gardens.
- Buy the Fort in MourningWood and get over 2000 points in the minigame (solo) to get another weapon.
- If you enslave the auroran people and get the mine built, you can access an extra chest with a rare weapon in it (after a puzzle).
And voila, shouldn’t take too long, I’d say 4 to 10 hours depending on how well you know all this and how quick you are. If you have any questions just ask me through a pm or something, or directly if you know me personally. Good hunting!
