comments and responses

Yes, indeed you can play both sides of the street. It is the best way to maximize your experience, and gain reputation, which by the way, once attained, is never reduced. Just make sure you get all you need to enter Ishtar peacefully and complete the quests there before liberating any more hashishin town/cities. You can kill Shakyor now, if you like.

i did finished the quest "Nomads and Raiders" of Bakaresh. Managed to get bundle of weapons for Murak too. everything is done but the quest is still there. can the quest be cancelled or failed after i decided to liberate bakaresh later on? (it means i have to kill Amul who give this quest right?!) and one more thing about bakaresh, i would like to take care of the oasis from the nomads n raiders so i will earn 20 reputation point from hashishin. that way i dont have to kill too any water mages right?! (I dont feel right killing them all ;-p). i have done the quest from Shakyor so i have no other importance with Sinikar, Ateras, Knut and Redge. if i may know, will the quest from Tizgar influence any other important quest? (as i'm destroying their camp) As i told u, i'm done with Shakyor's and have liberated Lago and take Vatras safely to Hurit. Please advise me. Thanks a lot for the help

I don't know why this would be necessary, but did you talk to sinikar and the nomads at the oasis outside of Backaresh to get the liberation quest. Then the sweeping slave will dialog, he'll want the usual some bundles of weapons. If you've done all that then go around and talk to all the other named folks in town. Make sure you completed all dialog and quest for them.

Sinikar is in a cave off to the left before you approach the two outer guards on the approach to Backaresh. He's always been there for me.

This is a repeat response to the same question asked in this thread.

No, it does not matter what your rep is with another faction, only how many cities you liberate or camps you destroy. At some point getting your rep to some level requires you to do the things that trigger hostility, but it is NOT the reputation level.

You complete the temple quest by gaining access to the temple and visiting the high priest there.

Messiah.raj

The oasis is west of the city, go out the way you came in and just keep going due west until you see a group of nomads. Before going there with Silvio, you may want to go there first alone, there are people there who give you quests. And one of them is the opposing support quest. Your choice which way to go, but you should at least take advantage of the opportunity to gain additional experience for the other quests. If you plan to eventually liberate Backaresh, then the support quest at least gives you some help. Not that it can't be done on your own, but it is a tad more difficult. BTW, most oases are marked on your map by a pair of palm trees.
