A couple to test;

Will forgetting the harp lead to a death at Icebella's palace by the wolves (the point of no return is both after Cedric is captured, and trying to climb back up the hill?  

Will missing the sled lead to a dead end after heading to the hill where the sled is needed (do the wolves attack cedric)?

I'm pretty sure in both instances the wolves do not show up if you do not have the sled or the harp though, avoiding the possible dead ends?Baggins (talk) 11:24, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

I just tested this in both the floppy and CD versions, and the results were the same for each. Despite the fact I carried neither the harp nor the sled, the wolf still showed up and abducted Cedric, leaving me in a dead end situation. Shadyparadox (talk) 09:25, August 11, 2013 (UTC)


"*If you give the ring to Sing Sing before getting the Magic Map you cannot get the map and are forever stuck on the Isle of the Crown"

I'm pretty sure this is averted, in that Sing Sing doesn't appear until after you trade for the map. If you take the map back to trade for the ring again, Sing Sing won't be in the screen. This way there is no way to trade the ring without having had the Magic Map. The only thing that changes this is also having the pearl in your inventory (which at that point you would still have something valuable enough to trade for the map, if you happened to trade the map back to the store owner after your return to the Isle of the Crown).Baggins (talk) 15:00, September 13, 2014 (UTC)
Just tested. You are correct, and I'd be happy to test anything else if you need to know something.Irrewonderful (talk) 17:03, September 13, 2014 (UTC)

I'm soon going to be going through this article and maybe others to fix the wording, as I believe it does not look encyclopedic enough. If anoyone has any objections or concerns, let me know. 18:12, October 5, 2014 (UTC)

Go ahead, but remember to try to keep it neutral.Baggins (talk) 22:50, October 7, 2014 (UTC)
I will. I'm just about to publish my first  edit. Will work on it more later. Irrewonderful (talk) 23:05, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

KQ5 - Forgeting the beeswax to plug the boat[]

KQ5 - Forgeting the beeswax to plug the boat

This is technically be impossible, as the harp is required to make it past Icebella, and the only way to get the harp is by completing the Dark Forest, requiring the honeycomb.

Not a dead end[]

  • If you send Alexander's ring to Cassima before you have a chance to show it to Jollo, you are unable to befriend Jollo and cannot pursue that storyline, but you can still finish the game.
