If I may ask (for a future playthrough), how many points are needed to invest in Presence to obtain all dialogue options ?

That would be 3...

No problem I prefer the book over the charm.  In fact I forgot what the charm did.

The charm did the same, so only the order of when you get the items was changed!

Quote
I can't see to close since there's no way to spin the camera around to show the character from the front.

You can define keys to move the camera, default are the numpad keys.

So I will still get the charm later on in the game?

I did not know I could move the camera with the numpad. Thanks! :)

Edit:  Okay got the charm.  It was in Dr. Grouts asylum.

Welcome Talyn. Are you the Talyn82 from the Bioware forums? And cool name, I'm still sad, that Talyn and Crais died (Farscape is such a great show).

Spoilers :'(

Be careful next time. We can't all see every show out there.

Even with the spoiler I recommend checking out the show.  At the time it was one of the most popular scifi show on tv.  It has a great cast and many memorable characters.  At the time Farscape and Stargate SG-1 were my two scifi shows.

So currently my Toreador, Tristan is in Hollywood.  He just got the movie script from the hotel manager for VV, and scared off Julius.  While back in Santa Monica I confronted Muddy and killed him.  My experiences with the Toreador so far.  With a 3 in presence the melee fights are easy.  Since I am in Hollywood and this is were we do the Warrens section.  I've begun putting points into firearms and perception.  I hate the Warrens because of those creepy Maiden's they are so creepy but easy when using stealth and a Colt Anaconda.  Back Downtown I only had trouble with Bishop Vick in the crackhouse.  His shotgun blasts were doing a lot of damage, but I hacked him up with the fire axe from the haunted hotel.

Just finished the Warrens and talking to Gary.  I was pleasantly surprised to find a locked door and terminal.  The terminal said 'shortcut.'  I hacked the password and the door unlocked.  I went in and eventually I made my way to the Nosferatu Lair.  Along the way through the shortcut I encountered an overweight creature that fires a green projectile, and a "Maiden" which I easily snuck by.

Anyway thank you to Wesp5 for the shortcut.  I don't mind doing the whole thing.  It's just the fact that you don't gain experience from killing monsters, that makes Warrens pointless imo.

You... killed Muddy ? Or you witnessed his murder ?

Talyn: I think you killed Muddys killer, the red headed guy with the white shirt?

The Warren's can get tiresome and they are so bugged. I'm really glad for wesps shortcut. I love the Nosferatu though, especially Gary, he is great.

And yes, Farscape was a great show with really great and memorable characters.

Oh yes, this might be what happened.

If it happened, then take note in the future because you can persuade him to step down and abide by the masquerade... if you'd like to choose that path.

It was late last night when I posted I killed Muddy.   Yeah it was the murderer I killed in the junkyard.  As for getting him to abide by the masquerade.  I did not get that option.  My persuasion has been at 6 since Downtown, I am now in the downtown library about to confront the Lasombra.  But up to what level should I keep allocating points into persuasion to get all persuasion topics?  Also up to what level should I raise seduction?  Because I read that during the Giovanni mission I can seduce my way in.  The first time I snuck/killed my way through which was not hard. 

About the Nosferatu.  I like the fact that Gary and Imalia were once attractive and are now ugly.  But Mitnick is my favorite with Gary  and Tung right behind.  Talking about Gary and Tung.  Who is the highest ranking Nosferatu between the two?

About Farscape damn right is a great show. :)

With a 9 in persuasion you can pass all checks.

Now about seduction. Although I use it in my playthrough, it is considerably less useful than persuasion. There's almost nothing you can do with seduction that you can't also accomplish with persuasion. So unless you really care about having blood dolls then it might not be the best skill.

Gary of course, he is clan Primogen. Top boss of all LA nossies.

Okay good so I don't have to raise seduction.  I thought there was more to it than just blood dolls.  I assume as a Ventrue they will need seduction?  Cause even though I have no problem getting cash in the game.  The blue blood packs are expensive, and I need the extra cash for my Colt Anaconda.  So I will raise persuasion.

As for Golden Gary.  Now I remember there's a scene where LaCroix is speaking to other vamps and he says they are vampire Primogen.  Gary was one of them.  But yeah I like Gary, boss.  I am doing his pointless quests to acquire certain items for posters.  I say pointless because you don't get any experience points for doing them.
