    1.where do I use bodhi's black heart?

    - If you have a romantic interest who was taken by Bodhi before the Chapter 6 battle, that person is now a dead partial vampire. Take the person (hope you didn't forget his/her stuff outside at the entrance to the area) and the heart, go to the ruined temple of Amuanator, put them both in the arms of the idol past the area with the simple word puzzle, and, voila, returned love interest.

    2.is it wise to make Crom Freyr?

    - Depends on whether you have a hammer wielding character and whether more people need lesser strength enhancing things or you think one character with a 25 strength is the way to go. Generally, if the hammer wielder has a way of increasing strength already, Draw Upon Holy Might, for example, it may not make sense.

    3.how do I get through the portal in aslyum that says you need three stones to enter?

    - If it's the one in the room with the mephits and the rakshasa, you don't go through it, you just feed three gems that you find (IIRC, one in the are where you get the bag of holding, one in the area with the kobolds just up the steps on your way to that part of the "maze" and I forget where the third one is), you'll get two enemies to fight and a genie will pop out and give you an armor that I think is decent.

    4.what do I do in the place in aslyum that there is chest and in the chest there is something like sundial, gagged man, hourglass, etc?

    - Click on the various statues who will present you with pretty easy riddles. Place the item that solves the riddle in the hand of the statue until you've done all of them. (Hey, I think this is where you pick up the third gem for the portal.)

    5.how do I complete the quest that there is priest of Lathander in the graveyard and he want's to find a caretaker(?) of a child?

    - There's a grieving paladin at the north end of the graveyard during certain times of day. Talk to him and it flows naturally.

    6.how come Wave can slay salamanders but not Fire Salamanders?

    - Dunno, never use it.

    7.are burning skulls undead?

    - I don't think so, I've never had luck turning them or using the MoD on them.

    8.what level can I turn:
    Lich, Elemental Lich, Demi-Lich?(not fear, but make them explode)

    - Don't remember, I'm at work.

    9.do I have to kill Sendai 9 times or 17 times?(including Statues)

    - Don't remember 17. Are you using Ascension?

    10.Minsc's berserk abillity stops inprisonment of Demi-lich(in watcher's keep) but not of Kangaxx?

    - Think it's in the nature of the "spells" that Kangaxx throws.

    11.storekeep won't buy Helberd +2. but he buys other stuff. it says:"I can't/Won't but Fenced goods."why?

    - It thinks someone stole it. If no one did, this may be a bug that pops up from time to time.

    11. It is stolen equipment. ;) A merchand of integrity wont accept it. You will have to search out a fence to sell it. Search the sewers in the tempel district for Roger the Fence - or go to the Thieves guild or one of the "merchands" who only come out during the night to do their business (you can find them in Waukeen's Promenade, Bridge District, slums). ;)

    6. Wave slays any water based creatures unless they make a save iirc. Cold Salamanders and Water Elementals will be slayed by the Wave Halberd.

    I'm pretty sure Wave is made to kill Fire critters, not Water ones. As to the Halbard +2, I'm going to guess bug, as about the only ones you find really can't be stolen (unless you aquire them, sell them and then steal them back I guess), as one is a drop from a foe and the other is sold at A-Mart.

    The Halbred +2 she's refering to is dropped by a statue in watcher's keep. no idea why it's considered fenced, I only know that it does...

    What I really don't understand, is how can a merchant know you're selling him fenced stuff? It's not as if you label them after stealing... and since there are tons of items that look the same everywhere, how should anyone know the difference?

    I have never even considered what level you'd have to be to not just turn but destroy the various lich-types. My thinking is that it's probably impossilbe to destroy the demi-lich. It's probably hard coded into the game that you can't. I'd seriously doubt you'd even be able to turn him as that would be ultra-cheesy. That having been said, I would imagine that if it were possible to turn any of the elemental liches, you'd have to be an extremely high level - probably higher than what is realistically possible in SoA. However, since one can easily get a 40th level cleric in ToB (I think clerics hit level 40 well before the 8 million XP cap) if it isn't hard coded I suppose it's possible. I just don't think you'd be able to do it with a 20th level cleric in SoA though.

    I think Demi-Liches are Impossible, and elemental ones are about TE level 30 or 25.(I can't turn elemental ones at TE level 22)
