    Hi there, thanks for taking the time to see what's wrong.
    Right now im leveling a new character, and i'm now doing the crossroads quest called : A warning from the Xian Merchant Guild. And i just don't know what to do.

    I'm told by Isabelle to talk to ''Hunt" near the entrance of the Valley Lily Inn. But when i talk to him it says i need more knowlogde of Bobby lauren I'll quote him : ''This is Valley Lily Inn, Run by Madame Grace. Don't Even try to compare this to the inn of that disgrace to the Lauren family, Bobby Lauren. * You must meet a certain requirement to obtain the knowledge of this NPC. Go meet the NPC indicated on the world map first, then come back to obtain this knowledge.''

    The NPC it leads me to is Bobby Lauren, and when i talk to him he has nothing to say to me. He says : ''The Grand Chamberlain deserves our utmost loyalty. I hope he recognizes my devotion someday!'' And nothing else.

    I hope somebody knows what do to with this. Thanks again for reading this. And I hope im not just missing something very obivous.

    Hunt needs you to have the knowledge (shortcut H - maybe there is a hint on how to get it when it's not completed) of Bobby Lauren to be able to do conversation with you, but you don't get that knowledge when talking to Bobby Lauren?

    Do you have a warning too in Bobby Lauren conversation? Does he have a yellow "!" above him?
    Yellow point would mean you would trigger the knowledge by talking to the NPC, prerequisite would be then be indicated the same way that you explain here with Hunt.
    It's possible that you have to get the info about him by talking to other NPCs and doing the amity game.

    a screenshot of them, their dialogs and/or you questlog (shortcut O) could help to answer. Once we get the knowledge we don't have those informations anymore. It's done once and for all for the whole account and it was long ago for many of us.


    Edit: all I found is that you need 1 point of amity with Bahar, meaning, you go back to Velia, you do the amity game once with Bahar (trade manager near the stables) or you wave/greet him with the interaction menu (F5...) for 3 points.

    So the thing with greeting Bahar didnt work. So i decided to take a bunch of screenshots. So maybe you can find something out with that. I made then with a program named Gyazo and it gives a link so... here they are:

    Ok, Bobby Lauren isn't the problem, it's either Isobelle or Povios (you'll need both anyway if you picked the 3rd Crossroad option)

    Those topics requirements (Sophistication I and Economy I or anything that isn't monsters), you'll unlock enough of them by talking to everyone, questing and buying knowledge from amity game around there.

    more details there to find the ones you are looking for:

    though the guard actually speaks about Bobby Lauren, it's kinda weird. If you needed a certain amity score the yellow text would tell you how much.

    aaaaaaaaaaah wait wait, checking your images again, I see that you have a negative score with Bobby Lauren, try to rectify that first thing.
    Enabling the mini game with the 2 others persons may be handy later on though.


    Edit: yes that's it, knowledge of an NPC but no amity score required => Amity 1 required

    So, I'm trying to do the amity game thingy but i can't equip the knowledge cards..
    Do you know what im doing wrong? I can only do the one you can slightly see in the right corner.
    Basicly how do i zoom out in this screen?

    it's not the full screen there is it?
    normally you can (right?)click on the circles in the bottom right corner to fill the circles in the elephant- These are your "cards". Mouseover them to see their stats, how much score they give. You need to fulfill the requirement noted in the upper part of the screen: here for example, you need to fail at least once.
    So you pick a low chance circle and try to make the more points despite it.

    Worst case scenario if the game is hard (some are near impossible later in the game), you can still wave/greet the NPC to convert 3 energy to 3 amity.
