Wolfe's Lair

S2FA An Empty Office S2FA

This tutorial was made in collaboration with Madder Hatter, although I must confess the only part I played in the collaboration was the daunting task of editing all the images...


The first step in this lengthy quest is activating The Switch in the Jungle. The closest portal is Na'Fian and the closest warp from the Island of Many Roads is the portal in the Jungle room. The path leads from the Na'Fian portal.

Enter the cave at the above location:

There you will find The Switch:

When you click on it the following message will pop up to let you know you are on to something:

Next you need to find Something Wonderful (there is no quest marker for it). The closest portal is Teardrop Hamlet, and the closest warp from the Island of Many Roads is the portal in the Desert room. The path leads from the Teardrop Hamlet portal.

Enter the cave at the above location:

Upon entering Something Wonderful you discover you are in the lobby of Ascaron Headquarters!

Heiko tom Felde is there and after talking with him he gives you the daunting quest of finding all the Ascaron employees to tell them it's time to begin work on Sacred 3!


Feel free to travel to the different floors. You won't be able to get into any of the offices but when you reach the second floor you get the title "Ascaron Fan".

Now begins the real journey, finding 89 Ascaron Employees spread throughout the land of Ancaria, time to get busy! Oh, you might want to keep your eyes open for all the Easter Eggs you'll find along the way :)

(click the above map to be brought to an interactive map showing all of the NPC locations)

As you travel throughout Ancaria speaking to the NPCs they will randomly say one of 10 possible messages:

1: Oh you're here, good! I'm sure I wouldn't have thought of it. Well then I'll hurry back to my office. Please do come see us!
2: We're finally ready. I'll go buy a few things quickly, and I'll meet you there. You'll come see us, won't you?
3: Thank you for the information. I'll leave right away. You go on and have fun.
4: Great let's go. If you're coming too, bring some candy.
5: Are we ready? Great, we'll have a wonderful time.
6: I'm on my way. Thank you. I hope I'll see you there.
7: Thank you for the information. I think I'll go buy a few cookies on my way. See you soon.
8: The others are already on their way? Well then I'll have to hurry so I can show them how it's supposed to go...
9: Oh... I knew I forgot something! Well then let's go, we don't have all the time in the world.
10: Very good, thank you. Here we go, finally. I'm sure we'll meet again, see you soon.


There is one exception to the above, you get a special treat when talking to Benny Kayser:

He will then give you a set item, we haven't totally figured out how to make sure you get the set item from him though. It might have something to do with how high your ability to find special items is or maybe it has to do with what difficulty level you are in. Heck, it might even be depending on what game version you are playing if you haven't installed all the patches. All I know for sure is that the first time MadderHadder did this quest he didn't get the set item, but the second time (while playing in Niobium) he did.... So anyway here is the item:


So you found them all, time to travel back to Ascaron Headquarters and collect your reward! (A yellow flash will occur when your quest log updates upon finding the last NPC.)

When you arrive back at Ascaron Headquarters, Holger Floettmann will be waiting for you in his office on the third floor:


 After congratulating you he directs you to Bettina Wegner on the second floor, who gives you a key to the lounge so you can put your exhausted feet up for a rest.

Head down to the first floor, you'll find the smoke filled lounge down the hall on the left, get in there and get your well earned reward!

So what is the quest reward, you ask? It will spawn in the Lounge!

Just like with Benny, the first time MadderHatter did the quest the reward was just gold and potions, but the second time he also got two items:


Don't forget to check out all the employees desks for some personable catch phrases, all the doors are unlocked now, including the rest rooms... ugh! check them out at your own risk!
