Badge of Vows 77 is a Badge of Vows medal obtained during the From A Different Sky quest of the same number. The badge is the remnant of a former Riftstone, collecting it earns a reward of Rift Crystals.
- "A badge that glimmers with a mysterious light. Similar medals can be found scattered around Gransys."
Picking up this item grants a reward of 1 Rift Cluster and 1,000 experience.
The mantelpiece cannot be reached with a Double Vault. There are several ways to obtain the badge, including using High Frigor to create an ice block stepping stone, or the use of barrels for a similar purpose.
Enter during the day around mid-morning or later after the Duke has left the room. If other people enter the room, wait for them to leave.
As any of the vocations that use magick, cast Frigor / High Frigor near the fireplace. If done correctly, this will create a platform of ice that can be used to jump on to grab the badge - if the spell is misplaced the climbable block of ice will not form. (see the image for a successful cast)
Stack barrels to reach the badge - if luckily placed a single barrel may allow the badge to be reached -however it is easy to stack one barrel on top of another reliably create a suitable platform.
Barrels can be found in several rooms within the castle. Place on near the badge and table, the climb the table, pick up a second barrel, and place it on top of the first. The Arisen can then jump and grab onto the second barrel, climb up, and take the badge.
In general the first strike on the badge will cause it to 'drop', from its initial position onto a more stable position, much like a coin falling onto its side. Usually this position is on top of the bookcase where it started, and further attacks will not move the badge. It is pointless to continue attacking it.
It is claimed that explosives and explosive spells, such as High Ingle or Throwblast, may be used to dislodge this badge from its perch.(verify) If you use this method it's best to wait until the time of day in which the Duke sits in the Audience Chamber. That way you don't get arrested for utilizing High Ingle or a Throwblast.
