Fable 2 Guide - Donating to the Light

You can now pay a visit to the Temple of the Light regularly to make donations in return for positive points. The most sensible course of action is to donate 1,000 gold at a time, giving you 25 good and 25 purity points each time. Donate 500 gold in total and then one more upon the monks' request between midday and 1 pm to earn the title of Harvest Benefactor and attaining the weapon The Rising Sun. You need to donate over 10,000 gold in the one go for this, so one for the future perhaps.



With that in mind, travel to the Chamber of Fate via fast travel or using the Cullis Gate on top of Bower Lake Hill as the first step on the next mammoth quest, The Hero of Will.

[size=12][/size] Ok, after reading all the comments regarding the Temple of Light Donations I too am having the same problem.. I now understand why for my aviator is quite corrupt... I have donated about 20,000 and it still has not given me anything nor gone away... Maybe there is a glich in the game but I will not allow myself to be stuck on this.. I have progressed so far in the game that this seems so small to worry about.. If there are any pointers and or clues to this please info me... Otherwise I will simply say that the game is not operating the way it should.. Enjoy this game alot... Thank you

how do you donate to the temple give it to a monk or what

Guest

If you can't donate it's because you didn't help the temple of light before going to the spire (you are warned before you go that there will be consequences for things you didn't do...) if you are stuck in that case, time to go evil! Go to the temple of shadows and donate for a different weapon! Yay for you! xD

Next play through you know what to do to insure you have that weapon :3

When the Temple Of Light is smashed, that means that you have either done some Temple Of Shadow Quests or that you bought the Temple Of Shadow, because that destroys the Temple Of Light.
Likewise, if you buy the Temple Of Light, the Temple Of Shadow is supposed to be destroyed.

To do this quest properly, you should not do any Temple Of Shadow quests.
Also just donate some gold to the donating thing (not to the monks, though I'm not even sure that's possible), until you get the title of the next "Harvest Benefactor".
Then, when you have that title, you have to donate to the temple between 12:00 and 13:00 pm, no sooner not later.
I'm not sure about the amount, maybe its 1k , maybe 10k.
Maybe you should try 1k first, then if that doesn't work you can always donate 10k.

Also, after being back from the spire the first time, the temple and it's surroundings are bigger.
There is a second building, there is water, nice statues, etc, and you can actually bu the second temple building for around 90k to 100k.

Btw, there seems to be a glitch which causes this quest to never end.
You can keep donating to help the temple and to get morality points and green orbs, and you can keep getting the title of Harvest Benefactor, and then donate at the appropriate time to get the weapon again, and again and again.

Maybe it can be sold for a large sum, but I haven't tried that so I'm not sure about that.

it's not that the sun will go into the middle of the room, its that at noon the sun hovers over the statue up against the wall near the donating plate. where the monk is praying you'll see the sun move slowly as the time passes. but you have to do it between 12noon and 1pm.

Ok I was there from noon til 1:30pm and the sun never reached the middle of that floor. idk what is going on but apparently this is a quest that does give some troubles. I know all about moving around and it makes time travel faster and I know about the lower amounts and such but I am not a dumb person by any means, lol it just is not working.

Ok now I donated the lower amount first and I still didn't get it. I donated 10k at 12:30 and yet I still didn't get it I then tried again and still nothing. What is going on with this quest? This quest is costing me alot of money here and I do so need every bit of it.

"Ok, I got there early so I gave all the monks gold (500), then at 12:10 I gave the 500 then at 1230 I gave 10,000 (I already have the sun) but my quest is still there. So i gave more money 10,100 thinking it had to be over 10k and the quest is still there. Is it because I am corrupt? (which I dont know why? I didnt steal, I have A LOT of homes, pubs but I am not charging their rent more so that part is really bugging me...I dont like it, I do have two husbands (only to get the gamer points) and now I dont know how to divorce, I dont go back and see the one and I dont give him money but yet we are still fine). I am 100% good is this why its not working?" This is a minor glitch. You can get the Rising Sun infinity amount of times! ;)

Make sure for anyone who is having trouble, that you donate your money to the pedestal in the back of the room, not the monks themselves

Donate at least 500$, this will start the next part of the quest about the suns zenith. Then watch the sun filter into the building. when it reaches the middle of the floor then its time to donate the big 10,000$. Also if ur lazy u can catch the same effect by checking ur clock in the start menu when the clock strikes 12:00pm its time.

stupid question maybe, but HOW do you donate???
All I get when I go to the temple is a golden circle to stand in, then I am surrounded by monks begging for a donation, but I can't do anything???

Help?

I went to the temple at 12:00 pm. Realized I needed to wait closer to one so went out dug up a few items, bought some gifts for the priests there for achievement. The entire time the clock would not move. It was still 12:00 pm. I know time moves forward when you travel but how do you make it move only 1 hour forward? xD

Dude, you are clearly donating at the wrong times and not doing what the quest tells you to. Make sure 'Donating to the Light' is highlighted as your main quest, and then donate the amounts at the times which are specified above. To find the in-game time, hit the start button and look in the top right hand corner of the pause screen. You MUST donate between midday and 1pm for this to work.

Guest
Added 18th Sep 2010, ID #12869

 
if you kill lucien before you start donating, the whole temple should be newly renevated. if you donate after 12 30 but before 1 it worked best for me. It also helps if you are extremly Pure and Good.
