"He’s definitely not a good character. He’s a Gnome, and he’s sneaky. Still, he’s handy in an adventure as long as you don’t expect him to be a front-line warrior or for him to carry a lot of weight."
-PRIMA’S OFFICIAL STRATEGY GUIDE


Location[]

Vollinger can be found at the bar of King's Inn & Pub in Dernholm until the player visits T'sen-Ang. After that he leaves the game forever.

Circumstances[]

Vollinger is willing to provide Apprentice training for several morally questionable skills. He is mostly unwilling to chat, but expresses interest if the player discusses their recent events.

Recruitment[]

  • Vollinger will join as a temporary Follower provided:
    • The party has an open follower slot
    • The player is at least level 14
    • The player discloses that they are the lone survivor of the Blimp Crash
    • Vollinger generally leaves when the party concludes their business in T'sen-Ang if there is not an amicable parting with the Molochean Hand
  • He will offer to join as a regular follower provided:
  • He can also become a permanent follower if he waits outside of T'sen-Ang, and then rejoins after the player has finished business within

Special Follower Considerations[]

  • Vollinger will no longer offer Apprentice training once he has become a follower
  • Vollinger will get upset (to the point of becoming hostile) if the player attacks Dernholm residents
  • This includes Sir Garrick Stout, so you will need to make him wait while doing the Dodge and/or Melee Mastery quests
  • If he does becomes upset (without going full hostile) then he can be placated with some Absinthe

Interactions[]

  • Vollinger has a running travelogue for the darker or mysterious elements of most places that the party visits
  • He evokes an objection from Virgil should the player attempt to engage with him
  • He can interact with Gideon Laier
  • He has additional dialogue with the player if he leaves the party at T'sen-Ang and they later meet again alone at his house

Vollinger is a gunslinger who also learns degrees in the disciplines of Chemistry and Gun Smithy
