Picking up the coals

posted by krisis on - last edited - Viewed by 298 users

I've been trying to pick up the coals where Elaine was pinned down but I'm clueless to how I have to pick them up. I've pretty much gone through my whole inventory by now.

What am I Missing?

  • Thanks. Can't believe i missed it.

  • Hey, you're not the only one. This was my biggest hangup in the whole game, just because I totally missed that one thing.

  • Yea, same here. Never needed a single clue in neither first chapter or the second EXCEPT for the bloody coal part. Credits to Telltale for such an EYECATCHING bucket... heh
    As Liam Neeson would say it....Mind your surroundings!

  • i thought it was really obvious that its there...but maybe thats just me

  • Finding the bucket was easy, but where on earth are the coals? One of you said they're next to where elaine was pinned down.....but I don't see them?

  • They are on the ground next to the library and where Elaine was pinned. You'll see them when she after she gets up. I thought it looked like a necklace at first, but they are coals!

  • hmmm...this part must come later in the game or something because elaine is still talking to the merfolk queen and the millugunty (sp?) pirate captain in the royal chamber. I still can't find the coal, I looked everywhere. I turned the hint frequency on to full blast and all guybrush keeps saying is "There must be more stuff for me to plunder!" But I looked ALL over the map, islands, etc. everywhere! And there's nothing to pick up.......a glitch or something? (btw I got the seahorse and the sea turtle, but not the cranky fish artifact).

    Yea, you're probably not at that part yet...

    You won't be able to get the coal before you find all three artifacts. Get the fish artifact and then start worry about the coal
