Default Becoming a mage

October 4th, 2009, 13:14
Allright, so I wanted to play a mage in my second game, and went straight to the Monastery (got knocked down and dragged in by the first Warrior that saw me). Now I'm a Warrior of the Order (level 10, just completed the city quests and entered Chapter 2), without ever having the option to become a mage (I can use Crystal/Fire/Frost, but not Seals).

So, how does one become a mage? It's obviously not by going straight to the Monastery; you'll end up a Warrior of the Order no matter what.

I suspect it has something to do with Harbor Town.. ? Perhaps, if you do all the quests there for the Inquisition, and for the mage in the Gutter, they'll give you some sort of pass that will let you join the Monastery and become a mage?

If that is the case, then the ideal start (thinking back to Gothic 1 here) would be to do all the quests for the Bandits, up to the Dons quest to go to the city, and then save a "Choice" game there, after which you can:
1) Do the quests for the thieves in the city, and join up with the Don.
2) Do all the quests for the soldiers (+mage) in the city and get a pass to the Monastery where you:
a) Become a Warrior of the Order
b) Becoma a mage

Is this correct, or is the mage path entirely different from what I suspect?
