Fable 2 Guide - Treasure Island of Doom
Next is the involving Treasure Island of Doom quest. Set it up as usual and then go and speak to the drunk in Bloodstone tavern. He's sure he's seen a ghost in the cave by the waterfront yet no one believes him, mainly because he hangs out in the dingiest pub in Albion presumably. This is quite a long-winded quest, so be sure you have about half an hour to see it through, then head out of the tavern to the cave he has pointed out. Dive off the ledge in front of you as you enter, then climb out of the water and up the wooden ramp past the galleon docked in the cave.
You won't meet any enemies until you come to the out-of-place door. It leads to a mess-hall full of pirates, eager to protect their captain and their booty. They may be ghosts but they can be easily despatched using similar techniques to Bandits. Inferno and flourishes work well, and using Raise Dead to draw attention away from yourself isn't a bad idea either. In the next room you need to uncover the switch to unlock the door (clever people these pirate-ghosts) which is in the top left-hand corner as you enter the room. This gives you passage into the captain's personal quarters after a spiral staircase, where you can find the key to his chest in the drawers by his bed. Unlock the chest to get a lever, which you can then use all the way back in the main cave (turn right as soon as you exit the building) to raise the water level and make the ship sea-worthy. Vault across the gap and onto the ship and the captain and his motley crew will appear. Focus on his foot-soldiers as the captain is supervising for the moment. With them out of the way you can feel free to focus on the man himself.
Will attacks are weak against him, so ranged and accurate fire is the way to go. Try to avoid his melee attacks if possible, and once defeated you will get his treasure map, giving you access to a secret area of Albion and a plethora of treasure up for grabs.
Head up to the helm and press A by the wheel to become at one with the ship and see it steer out of the harbour and to the location on the map. Pretty sweet.
Once back on dry-land you are given the task of finding 10 treasures on Lion's Head Isle. Why this information wasn't marked on the map is anyone's guess. The first can be found in the ship wreckage ahead and to the left of where you start. Explore underneath the wreck's overhang to find it. The next can be found by following the path across the beach and into the grassy area uphill. Jump down on your left to land on top of the same shipwreck where you can also find a chest, containing 1500 gold, just like the other 9, allowing a total of 13500 gold from this one quest.
Next, head back up to the same path and walk up the point where you are prompted to dive into the water off the tall jump. Instead of that, jump off the left hand side onto a platform underneath for the third chest. You can find the next stash in a chest on the central isle of this canyon, and the fifth in a dive-spot nearby. Walk around in circles on the central isle for a short while and your dog should find a dig-spot with the sixth. Seventh can be found underneath one of the waterfalls to the left of where you land from the jump into the water. Climb out of the watery canyon and head into the cave to find chest number eight in an opening on the left. Drop down onto the ledge below after exiting this cave to get chest nine. Continue back to the beach then follow the spit of land to the far left by swimming then turning round the end of it to find the final chest. Head back to the ship with all ten in the bag, activate the wheel as before and the drunken pirate will meet you as you disembark back into Bloodstone.
You should now have enough renown to take on the rest of the Hero of Skill quest, but the rest of the quests from this part of your life in the game are now detailed below.
