I've PM'd both LouBlue and Flynneldariel, and can also assist those who haven't received an answer yet. Feel free to PM me as well, though as our friend above me said, proof of completing SMEN would be nice.

Gone NORTH, asked about Salt. Would greatly appreciate someone sharing the other endings with me... and an explanation as to what just happened.

So I'm playing through Where You and I Must Go, and I've got to say that the feeling of reading (almost) the exact same text as KING OF WAYS on my screen was incredibly eerie. Major props to FBG for that.

Is it possible to complete the storyline without going to Winking Isle?

Yes. Will it be easier? Not in the slightest. Details below the spoiler.

[spoiler]

You can always raise SMEN through the Seeking Road by sacrificing Appalling Secrets, Mourning Candles, and/or Searing Enigmas. This is an extremely expensive task, especially towards the end. For instance, the final step from SMEN 76 to SMEN 77, if done by drowning secrets, would cost 5,852 Appalling Secrets (worth nearly 900 Echoes) to attempt, and the challenge would have a base difficulty of 1,520 Watchful. That means that the highest currently possible Watchful, including a Mood (Watchful 327) would only give a 12% chance of success, with the secrets lost either way. So this is fairly impractical for high levels, but it works well for an early push before the costs scale too high.

Some Exceptional Stories also have the potential to increase SMEN. "The Chimney Pot Wars", for instance, can increase SMEN by 1 in one ending. This, however, would demand a substantial investment of money, and it's fairly financially irresponsible.

Furthermore, depending on your definition of "going to Winking Isle", there's the option of the lighthouse, which is, in my opinion, the most reasonable choice if one tries to avoid fasting and meditating on Winking Isle. This essentially involves grinding out St Destin's Candle over and over again through Notability and then bringing it to the lighthouse. The challenge here is the gap between SMEN 29 and unlocking Destin at SMEN 35, which requires use of the aforementioned techniques.

To add, the first three candles before Destin's also give SMEN, so the challenge is rather between SMEN 29 and SMEN 32 (give or take one SMEN either way, it's been a while since I counted it exactly).

I just finished the storyline and chose the "What is due?" ending. Would others who have dared to come this far be willing to share the other endings? I can share mine with anyone gracious enough to do so.

Two questions:

I'm going to be at 28 SMEN next week. I've obtained 0 candles (though I do have full scars, chains, and stains). How many points of SMEN do I get via candle acquisition/etc? Or in other words, how many points do need to get at winking isle?

Next, what's the best way to get making waves under winking isle restrictions? Most the 50 pence items are restricted. I'm already at 12 notability but need to maintain it until I can get St. Destin's. (Then again, I may not need to go to winking isle before st destin's if I can somehow get 7 SMEN, but I don't think I can without the super expensive seeking road options.)

You generally get one point of Seeking per candle. However, you can get three points of Seeking for the last candle, if you take a certain choice when acquiring it. This choice has no further prerequisites or costs (well, at least not one in term of game mechanics), but story-wise, this is mostly done by people who want to end their character via Seeking. Furthermore, before you can get the last candle, you have to get through some storylets that give you two or three points of Seeking, depending on one answer, you may want to consult the wiki on that when you get there. That makes nine to twelve points of Seeking, meaning you need to get up to forty points via Fasting and Meditating on Winking Isle.

At last, you can always give up St. Destins Candle at Winking Isle for one point of Seeking (and another one when you re-acquire it) without the costs of Fasting and Meditating, should you find yourself lacking a point or two. I hope I didn't forget anything.

Edit: You can still get making waves by side-converting tier 3 items, you just have to convert them all to Brilliant Souls or Memories of Distant Shores when you go to WInking Isle.

Hrm, yes, thank you for the info. Most useful.

Story wise, I plan to keep my body (and conscience) as unsullied as possible, so I probably won't choose the +3 SMEN option for the last candle, hehe.

I just want to know how long I'm apt to wait before someone can send me that damn Calling Card. Having every other requirement is a bitch to maintain LOL

Finally finished Seeking after about a two years.

I can finally min-max acquiring Notability, now...

Will I need to go back to Winking Isle at any point after my Seeking is high enough?

Nope. And you don't need to get Seeking all the way to 77 on Winking Isle, either; you'll get a few points afterwards depending on your choices. Just don't cut it too close.

Going to try for at least 75. It's just that being able to get the Book of Crimson Prayer from the Seeking Road sounded too easy, so I wanted to check.

My Seeking alt has unwisely acquired seven scars, seven memories of chains, and seven stains on their soul, and is now starting to work towards St Arthur's Candle. I'd be very grateful if anyone could help with the betrayals they need. Thank you.

After a year and a half of Seeking the Name, I am Done. I knocked, and asked - who is Salt?

All in all, was good fun. I didn't realize how close I was to finishing it this morning, St Gawain's was... easier to get than I thought (or was it?).

Now to start a new character, who may Seek the Name... and may be wise enough to stop when they realize what the answer will cost...
