Fable 2 Guide - Love Hurts

Back in Bowestone set up the Love Hurts quest. This involves you going to see the gravekeeper in Bowerstone Cemetery to go on a longwinded hunt for some missing body parts which he is collecting.

Without asking too many questions, you'll be sent first to the well-travelled Hobbe Cave in Rookridge to get the initial piece of the puzzle. Fight your way through the cave to wherever your dog locates the quest-crucial dig spot as being. Digging here will unearth the lower part of the body. Get back to Bowerstone and deliver the partial corpse to him. It emerges that he is collecting the body parts of Lady Grey, but for what end it's unclear at the moment. The second piece is in a new tomb in Wraithmarsh. Unfortunately every time you travel there you tend to have to fight at least one Banshee or group of Hollow Men, but you can fast travel pretty close if you use Bloodstone Road as the route. Hold A to enter. This tomb is a bit of a puzzler, but the first room you get into is pretty simple. Defeat the Hollow Men and then destroy the creepers to climb up the stairs and then stand on the switch underneath the next set of tangled plants and shoot the glowing orb, then slash at it, then shoot it again to open the main door out from the lower level.

Once you get to the corridor with the spikes in and full of Hollow Men, head to the end and stand on the switch to send an orb through and to the other side of the spikes.

Move back to the centre where the spikes are and shoot the orb as usual. That opens the door, so continue on. The next main room is waterlogged and again inhabited by Hollow Men. Defeat any that there are then stand on the switch underneath the odd looking statue. After it repositions itself, do the Chicken expression to activate another orb. If you follow the golden trail now to stand on the switch in the next room nothing will happen, but double back and head up the stairs to the left of the statue, rather than following the golden trail's path. At the top of the stairs stand on the switch (you may have to move on and off it repeatedly until the orb changes colour and moves closer) shoot the orb and then drop down to stand on the platform in the room below. You can then proceed through the door. The next large room will see plenty of Hollow Men to defeat, but more importantly an orb which moves from statue to statue each time you hit it. Keep pummelling it until it makes its way to the opposite door to the one marked with the golden trail. Make your way past the flame-throwing statues and stand on the switch right at the end to open the correct door. Head through and in the final room open the coffin/chest to get Lady Grey's upper body. Get out of Wraithmarsh and back to the graveyard (fast-travel if you wish) and get the details of the third piece.

Fortunately for all concerned this one is nice and short. Go to Fairfax Gardens and into the tomb of Lady Grey herself. Once you descend the stairs and initiate the drop into the main tomb it all looks a bit scary amongst the dark sand.

All the same, head straight forward to the coffin and open in to retrieve her head (it's a shame the coffin in the Rescuing Charlie quest wasn't this easy to open!). You can leave via the stairs at the end of the room through the larger-than-average beetles, or simply fast travel out back to Bowerstone Cemetery.

Finally the quest is nearing its end, and this time you can find the gravekeeper in his basement. It emerges that he has invented a device to resuscitate the dead, planning to use this on Lady Grey convinced that she'll fall in love with the first person she sets eyes on. As events unfold you can either choose to keep Lady Grey as your girl (she does look and sound unique, which is a plus) despite all the gravekeeper's hard, yet disturbing work, and collect 10 evil points. Otherwise, just leave the mansion before events pan out at the gravekeeper's request and you get 10 good points. The Rod of Life trophy and 8500 renown also greet you upon completion of this quest.

I too cannot give him the head. He just stands there and the path leads me back to fair fax gardens. It makes me so mad that I went all this way for nothing. Plus a silver key and a gargoyle are behind the mansion and you can't get them if you don't finish this mission. So the gargoyle mission(which ends with a legendary weapon) are also not able to be finished either. Any help at all???

after getting the first body part the game sometimes won't acknowledge that you retrieved the body part, it sends you to the graveyard, but when I arrive at the cemitery, the bread crumb trail will always lead me to the Hobbe's cave, where I cant dig it, as I already have the lower body part. What can I freaking do? Tried to reload about 5 times, and it didnt work...

Added 24th May 2011, ID #44764

although i already knew what to do thank you and to the guy who said in the event that someone doesn't want to marry Lady Grey, life if you are a female who isn't interested, then just leave (as in go upstairs and out the basement door) before the countdown ends. Then she notices creepy guy and they live happily ever after. And then you can buy the mansion and kick them out! muahaha. well i married her and im girl i just wanted evil points then i killed her. >

I married lady grey and bought fairfax castle. We had a little girl one day lady grey dissapeared and I haven't found her since. I looked everywhere for her it always takes me back to castle fairfax when I click on the family cursor? Any suggestions?

Added 20th Oct 2010, ID #15698

First and foremost, she does not permanantly go away if you don't marry her the first chance you get. I didn't have a proper five star wedding ring for her, so I popped back to Bowerstone Market and visited the Jewelry seller. I bought an appropriate ring, and set back to the Graveyard Mansion, I traveled into the basement, and she was gone! I ran out of the mansion and down the curve a little bit, and there she was. I targeted her, and proceeded to give her the ring. We got married, end of story.

As for the person who asked if you can still own the mansion if you don't marry her; yes you can. but she is the owner, and you'll pay a fee to kick Lady Grey out of the house, It goes for 100k either way (if you marry her, and wish to own it, or you don't marry her, and wish to own it).

Added 19th Oct 2010, ID #15583

so unless you marry her straight away she is gone forever?

Added 23rd Sep 2010, ID #13370

Lol. She will occasionally disaper. Just wait a few secs. She appear. This is if she follows you.

Added 21st Sep 2010, ID #13245

Lol. Guys......Shes in love with you. Just get her to follow you to Bowerstone Market. Buy the "Eternal Love Ring", Propose, and BOOM, Shes married to you. Its simple as that.

Added 21st Sep 2010, ID #13244

Added 4th Aug 2010, ID #7370

she appers in the graveard from time to time if you dont marry her first chance, so just look there.

Added 11th Jul 2010, ID #3980

if i marry her can i still buy the mansion

Added 10th Jul 2010, ID #3874

There are numerous bugs associated with this quest, especially when it is completed before the main plot quest. I found information about it on the fable wiki, so if you're having trouble that's a resource you should look into.

Added 4th Jul 2010, ID #3066

Where does she run to? Or does she just disappear?

Added 4th Jul 2010, ID #3027

She runs away unless you marry her
