This page provides information on The Sacrificial Hermit[e] event.

Where: Wortham Bluffs Act I

Trigger: Speak with Rodger the Alchemist

Mob Details: None

Completion Details: Deliver the potion to the Crazed Hermit.

The Sacrificial Hermit is a very odd event. There is no combat involved (apart from the Spiderlings and Arachnid Horrors that may appear along the path), and all the player needs to do is bring a potion down a flight of stairs to a crazed hermit apparently living outside of the Caverns of Araneae. The potion makes the hermit's blood taste sweet, which he wants in order to please his mistress, the Spider Queen.

Rodger the Alchemist

After agreeing to deliver the potion, Rodger will sell the player potions and dyes at half the price of a normal vendor. Rodger is the first vendor in the game (in normal mode) who sells dyes.

Reward(s): Vendor Access (temporary)
