   =========================================================================
   
   Good day everyone and welcome to my Overlord: Minion Equipment FAQ. This
   is the second FAQ I've made so far so it should look alright and provide
   lots of info. The main purpose of this FAQ is to help people easily find
   specific pieces of minion equipment. I don't know if I'll be adding the
   stats of each equipment since that would take lots of time and testing.
   Well, enjoy the FAQ!

   [EI]                     EQUIPMENT INFORMATION
   =========================================================================

   In Overlord destroying breakable items and defeating enemies might
   yield pieces of equipment for your minions to use. By equiping your
   minions they become stronger and last longer in battle. To pick up
   equipment simply sweep your minions over them and they will automatically
   equip themselves. Note that sweeping minions over better equipment
   will discard any old, less useful ones they have. These discarded pieces
   drop onto the floor for other less equiped minions to pick up. Pieces of
   equipment can be easily seen by a bright shine they usually emit when on
   the floor. Note that most equipment is only visible on Browns. Reds,
   Greens and Blues may pick up equipment, but it might not be visible
   yet it will still have an effect. There's five types of equipment:
   weapons, helms, gloves, armguards and armor.

   =========================================================================
   
   The lists of equipment will follow the following format. Here is an
   explanation of how it works.

   Name: (Name of the item)
   Location: (Where it can be found)
   Source: (Who or what drops it)

   =========================================================================

   The following lists are currently organized by location. I will be
   working on a ranking system for their strength later on. Note that all 
   enemy related equipment can be obtained in the Dungeon with the exception
   of the piece of equipment Blaster Bugs drop.

   Every minion knows they need proper headgear if they want to survive
   in this world. Here's all they can wear on top of their little bald
   heads:

   ******************************************************
   GLOVES                                            [GL]
   ******************************************************

   Whether you're cleaning, gardening, pillaging or just bludgeoning a
   sheep for it's soul, gloves will always make it look cooler. The
   following are worn on either of a minion's hands:

   Name: Brown Leather Glove (Left hand only)
   Location: Mellow Hills
   Source: Barrels and boxes

   Name: Metal Glove (Right hand only)
   Location: Heaven's Peak

   ******************************************************
   ARMGUARDS                                         [AR]
   ******************************************************

   What better way to avoid having your arm severed by slugs
   than using an armguard. These are worn on your minions' right hand:

   Name: Bound Metal Armguard
   Location: Mellow Hills
   Source: Boxes and jars, Halfling Swordsmen

   Name: Spartan Armguard
   Location: Ruborian Desert
   Source: Boxes


   ******************************************************
   SHOULDERGUARDS                                    [SH]
   ******************************************************

   Back problems? Great! These shoulderpads will definitely not help with
   that. Note each minion can equip up to two of these, hence the two
   shoulders:

   Name: Metal Shoulderguard
   Location: Heaven's Peak

   ******************************************************
   ELBOWPADS                                         [EL]
   ******************************************************

   Protect your elbows from any scrapes with the following:

   Name: Metal Spiked Elbowguard
   Location: Understreets(2)
   Source: Jars


   ******************************************************
   ARMOR                                             [AM]
   ******************************************************

   Never go naked into battle, unless you're fighting a Succubus, if you
   catch my drift. Your minions wear these on their torso of course:

   Name: Leather Vest
   Location: Mellow Hills
   Source: Metal jars and boxes, Halfling Swordsmen

   Name: Spartan Armor
   Location: Ruborian Desert
   Source: Boxes

   ******************************************************
   HERO                                              [HE]
   ******************************************************

   The following pieces of armor are drops from heroes. Therefore, they are
   one time only pieces of armor that once lost can never be recovered.

   Hero: Melvin Underbelly
   Location: Melvin's Kitchen
   Equipment: Melvin's Fork
              Melvin's Crown

   Hero: Sir William the Black
   Location: Angelis Keep
   Equipment: Sir William's Staff

   =========================================================================
   [ME]                    MINION EQUIPMENT UPGRADES
   =========================================================================

   Depending on what Mistress you choose you will be able to raise the
   strength of your minions' starting equipment. Here are the possible
   options.

   **********
   Rose
   **********

   Browns' Equipment Upgrade:
   Happens automatically once you choose her over Velvet. All your newly
   spawned Browns will be wearing full mid-level equipment when taken out.

   Blues' Equipment Upgrade:
   You can buy the upgrade from the Tower Upgrade Menu for 5000 Gold. Once
   bought, all your newly spawned Blues will be wearing full mid-level
   equipment when taken out.

   **********
   Velvet
   **********

   Reds' Equipment Upgrade:
   You can buy the upgrade from the Tower Upgrade Menu for 5000 Gold. Once
   bought, all your newly spawned Reds will be wearing full high-level
   equipment when taken out.

   Greens' Equipment Upgrade:
   You can buy the upgrade from the Tower Upgrade Menu for 5000 Gold. Once
   bought, all your newly spawned Greens will be wearing full high-level
   equipment when taken out.

   -------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Additional to this, retrieving the Beer Kettle object from the Brewery
   in Golden Hills to your Tower will equip all your newly spawned,
   un-upgraded minions with full mid-level armor.

   Please note that there is a very dangerous glitch in the Brewery area.
   Once you enter, make sure you do NOT leave or turn off your game until
   you have retrieved the missing spokes for the broken wheel near the
   entrance AND have turned it completely. Failure to do so will result in
   a glitch that will make the spokes disappear permanently, thus completely
   halting game progress.


   =========================================================================
   [OI]                     OTHER MINION EQUIPMENT
   =========================================================================

   Besides pieces of equipment, minions can also pick up two other items
   and use them automatically.

   Name: Beer Mug
   Location: Mellow Hills, Heaven's Peak, Golden Hills
   Source: Crates, On tables, Drunkards, Dwarves of any kind
   Effect: Your minions drink it's contents to gain a power boost and a
           yellowish aura. They will end this state by taking a wizz.

   Name: Large Chicken Leg
   Location: Halfling Homes(2), Melvin's Kitchen, Golden Hills
   Source: On tables, Halfling Cooks
   Effect: Your minions munch on these for no apparent effect.


   =========================================================================
   [UH]                    ULTIMATE HORDE EQUIPMENT
   =========================================================================

   The following pieces of equipment are needed to get your horde to 400%
   efficiency and get the Ultimate Horde Achievent. They can all be located
   in crates in the Ruborian Desert, mostly in the Village.

   Helm: Golden Spartan Helm (Either)
   Armor: Spartan Armor
   Gloves: Spartan Gloves
   Armguard: Spartan Armguard
   Weapon: Golden Scimitar or Golden Halbert

   It is easier to reach 400% efficiency if your horde consists of 30 Browns
   and 20 Blues.
