Ghoul Guards? Edit

Are they just feral ghoul reavers? -DragonJTSLeave me a message 10:43, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

No, they are just normal ghouls (like Charon) which are armed and hostile, i.e. not feral. -- Porter21 (talk) 10:46, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

The quest is actually named "The Amazing Aqua Cura!"
Surely if their ghouls, they wouldnt be effeted by the radiation in the dirty water he is selling, anyway - lol. --ICECOOL777 00:52, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

They aren't being hurt by it physically, that's not the point. The point is that the guy is a lying sack of s***! ;) Zefiewings 21:42, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

F.E.V infected aqua cura Edit

if you tell him to sell the real aqua pura (witch gives you bad karma) then you can wait for a couple days and come back to underworld and see that he is not there anymore selling aqua cura, and if you go to the doctor in underworld, he will tell you that alot of ghouls are sick

Actually, none of the options give you any Karma, good or bad.Zefiewings 21:42, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

I noticed that his wig makes him look like the former Illinois governor Rob Blagojevech...that makes me laugh being from that state

Hehe, your right. Fat Man Spoon 17:03, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

So the former illinois governor is a half-melted zombie freak with a shitty wigt and is a liar?Probably Butter 17:04, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Fawkes Disappeared? Edit

I had Fired Fawkes just after Installing Broken steel and he left for the Museum of History But when i got there he was missing and there was just the Aqua Cura Salesman and Audience i Searched Everywhere even outside Project Purity. Where is He? Thanks in Advance!

Open console with ~ key and type: prid 2d9cf. Press enter. Then type: moveto player and press enter. Dumbassador 17:13, September 7, 2009 (UTC)

Problem There im using Xbox 360!

They say the first step in solving a problem is admitting that you have one.
  • For tips on retrieving Fawkes in your game, please consult the Discussion talk(archives) in the main article on Fawkes. Be sure to check The Citadel for him, too.
Nevertheless it is still possible that your firing Fawkes, right after installing Broken Steel, may have created a graphic object collision that removed Fawkes from the Museum of History. i.e. when The Aqua Cura sales stand loaded into the game and occupied the same space that Fawkes was standing in (beside the woolly mammoth in front of the entrance to Underworld). --Theicla 19:12, October 28, 2009 (UTC)

Article title Edit

Shouldn't the Fallout Wikia title for this quest be The Amazing Aqua Cura!, as it appears in the game? What I'm saying is that shouldn't there be an exclamation point in the title? BrenMan 94 16:51, September 7, 2009 (UTC)

yes. it's not right without it. it is a sales pitch and all.

Yes someone should edit this, I'm not sure how to edit article titles. The quest name has an exclamation mark, just like the Take it Back! quest, which has an exclamation on it's page, I noticed. A little consistency would be nice--JulesMasonLynch 21:44, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

And there we go! You guys do know that you can use the move button at the top of the page, right? It's not an admin-exclusive thing. Nitty Tok. 21:48, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

"Confirmed" inaccuracy in Bugs section about game crashing Edit

User (17 May 09) left the following irregular comment under the Bugs section:

"If you have completed this quest and left Underworld, attempting to return may cause the game to crash. This is very bad if you have entered the Feral Ghoul part of Underworld, as there is no way out except for the Museum Lobby (confirmed Xbox 360)"
As it stands, this reported (and confirmed!) comment makes absolutely no sense. There are no Feral Ghouls in Underworld except for The Chop Shop, where they pose no threat to the player. If the reported problem is that completing the Aqua Cura quest can cause the Museum of History Entrance to crash, then please correct the Bugs section accordingly.
  • Further input on how this quest causes game crashing (and how to prevent it) would be appreciated. --Theicla 18:53, October 28, 2009 (UTC)

Blackmailing Edit

In the article it says, "If you choose to blackmail Griffon and pass the first speech check for 50/50 profit shares with him (which has a low percentage rate for success), after this dialog with him ends you may immediately initiate another one whereby he'll give you 400 caps on the spot, mistakenly (and inexplicably) thinking he owes you back pay for having been away. Thereafter, you will have to wait for the weekly payments." However, he did only pay me 200 in said second dialog. Could it be that this depends on in-game time passed since some certain event, e.g. the activation of BrokenSteel (that could work out in my case: I have set the time scale to 1 so time runs slow, and at the Broken Steel start, you are 2 weeks in coma, so now I'm at 2 weeks and a few days after the Purifier starting accident)? -- 10:50, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Griffon Blackmailing Bug Edit

So I blackmailed Griffon for 50/50 profits, and then I traveled to Point Lookout to advance time by a month, but when I came back he just said "I don't have your money yet, once a week remember?". Im on the Xbox 360, not GOTY Edition, with every DLC installed.

Can anyone tell me what's wrong and how I can fix it?

I too have noticed this problem. I am on a PS3, non GOTY with Point Lookout. When I came back from Point Lookout, I expected to receive at least 8 weeks worth of caps but instead he says the same thing to me. At first I thought that I had to ask him exactly x weeks later on the same day, but that theory was busted when I waited a few days and only received 100 caps from him still. I would also greatly appreciate if someone could provide a reason for this and a solution. Cavalier13 20:34, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
Same here. My theory is it has something to do with the way the game advances time. Maybe the game clock doesn't add 4 weeks, it adds 1 month, and Griffon doesn't understand that 1 month = 4 weeks. Just a thought.--CyberSoldier8 03:11, August 2, 2011 (UTC)

Removed reference to Sweeney Todd Edit

I removed the behind the scenes section claiming this is a reference to a Sweeney Todd character:

"Griffon's character (and wig) appear to be a reference to one the recent film adaptation of Sweeny Todd (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007 film)), which features a similar character (with a not-totally-dissimilar wig) promoting fraudulent hair-restoration tonic ("Pirelli's Miracle Elixir")."

The only similarity between the two is that they are both a use of the Snake Oil Salesman Trope 21:35, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Possible improvement to page. Edit

I see the option for sale of the real pura by Griffon but not how it is done. I started the quest by entering the Museum of History. I confronted Griffon after getting a free bottle but he blew me off. I spoke Scribe Bigsly about it. I then went to the Authority and killed everyone and got the holotape and wigs. I then returned to the museum and had an option "The jig is up." This allowed an option to convince Griffon to sell the real pura.

The article probably ought to explicitly mention the objectives listed in-game for the quest before covering the highlights, but it does cover those. Specifically, it mentions your options when confronting him (at the end), which includes the option you mention. --HunterZ 05:31, May 16, 2011 (UTC)
