- Find an idol for Caxton.
After the Arisen has spoken to the Duke, Caxton will inform him/her that he wants a prized idol as a status symbol to get better supplies for his store.
You must deliver him a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Cursed Idol to get access to better equipment in his shop. Note that you can only give him one idol; a Gold Idol cannot later be given to him if you've already given him a bronze one, for example.
WalkthroughEditThe Gold Idol you get from an Escort Duty quest for Symone, which can be started by talking to Fournival after completing Land of Opportunity and Chasing Shadows.
Depending on which Idol you gave him, he'll start selling equipment of varying levels. Giving Caxton a Gold Idol will give you the best upgrade to his inventory while giving him a Cursed Idol will net you the worst upgrade to his inventory, with Silver being better than Bronze. Choose wisely.
- You might want to consider saving the Gold Idol for the Supplier's Demand quest, which is an identical quest for Madeleine. The quest can be obtained after she opens up her shop. In general, Madeleine's ware takes on valuables more geared towards magic items and equipment for female characters.
- Giving Caxton a forgery of one of the idols yields negative but potentially amusing results.
- After handing over the idol of your choice, it will take 2 complete game days for his inventory to update (so you must sleep at the inn until morning 3 times).
