    Ruffie is in the same area as Albert. I think he is to the East a little.

    Could you have possibly killed Ruffie before you received the quest? If I remember correctly, Ruffie looks pretty much the same as all of the other dogs/wolves that you fight.

    Thank You, JSBB :) He's in the cluster of trees next to the river. Albert was supposed to give me another chew toy, but I didn't get anything in my inventory :confused: Oh Well, I guess it's another glitch. I just found out if you kill Rufie, you get 1200XP plus 17XP instead of 1000XP for finding him :cool:

    Have you tried fighting Albert before you return the dog. It's dangerous :D

    It's not easy, i remember i attacked them, after returning Ruffie, and before the dimension door. Lot's of magic missile were spent on Albert, and Ruffie attacked me too. They can not be hurt with non magic weapon.

    I tried later again and again, but it was the only case when succeed. Other times they escaped. Unfortunately i don't realy remember, just for the magic missiles.

    He's a slow one, so go ranged, but as mentioned, used magical arrows or darts besides the magic missle.

    Can you kill Ruffie, and bring him back to Albert? That would be certainly an evil path (because your PC doesn't know what Albert and Ruffie really are).

    Just walk up to him and say, "Here you go kid - here's your dead dog."

    Maybe it's just me, but I'd think that would be pretty funny if you could do it.

    Yes Aldeth, Albert says something like "You killed Rufie, how could you have done such a thing" Then he just leaves, I would have thought he would have attacked me. Also, Rufie can be killed with non magical weapons. I'll have to try Albert again some other time because I don't have a saved game anymore :(
