Onaris - Sarino quest?
Who is the real merchant? You can ask the bandits about them, but they don't give a useful answer. How can I find out the truth?

They don't give a real answer? You played that quest 3 times thus and therefore seen the outcome of all 3 options?

1. Dwarf says "......." (I don't remember sorry) ---> leads to fight
2. Onaris's order
3. Sarino's order

Answer to second question is yes and third question is no. So which of the guys should I kill?

you know i killed one of them for the rare magic book reward. but i never got the book as a reward. possible bug i guess.

Yep, same here. Killed the tramp for the book and never got the book. If that's the case, it will be better to visit the two sites and fight the battles instead. At least you get the armor from the corpses.

Hey Enor-When you visit the tramp does your map cursor go all weird at that one site? The cursor becomes reversed and hard to navigate for me, so I wonder if this might be related to not getting the book once the quest is complete. Weirder things have happened....

The patch fixes this quest, but the spellbook is useless to any mages as it is ignisfaxis instead of ignisphaero. Both mages have ignisfaxis at the start so the book is only worth money. As I posted in another topic, this is the first truly idiotic quest reward in the game. You'll get twice the AP for siding with the tramp instead of the merchant. 20 ducats vs 100 AP is an easy call.

fwiw, just played this and got the book that teaches cold shock. It may be random.

I got cold shock as well.
It's relatively obvious who's who if you pay attention to their reactions. The Tramp sends you to deliver a message, whereas the merchant moves right to killing.

If Onaris survives, he asks Boron's forgiveness (for killing someone)
Sarino more or less treats it as the cost of doing business.

You can know the answer by asking the bandits. He will tell you that the merchant is the one that tried to have the other killed, so that tells you he is the true bad guy.

Also, the reason the above posts are mentioning a different book is because this is a necro thread from November, many many patches ago.
