So I did the "Escort Duty" quest perfectly and won the gold idol from Symone. But I gave it to Caxton and nothing happened. His shop didn't update at all and I made SURE not to give him the forgery gold idol. Anyone wanna shed light on the issue? If it's of any concern, yes I waited a few days. But still nothing. Anyone?

Not supposed to gift it to him. Need to wait for him to give you the quest

If you did give it to him as part of the quest it takes a few days for his shop to update. He has to wait for the weaponsmith to come to town.
Which, by the way, I really don't understand. All the merchants tell you that he only sells to people who he has given an Idol (better the Idol, better the gear). Yet somehow if you just happen to get an Idol he'll also sell to you? You'd think he'd remember who he did/didn't give one to and merely having one wouldn't effect anything.

Thanks for the info, guys. But I discovered that it really was a glitch of some sort. He gave me the quest "Idol Worship." I went and got the gold idol from Symone and then gave it to him for that specific quest. His shop still hasn't updated. Guess I need to start over or something. Great....

No you did the right thing. It happened to me as well.

I had to wait 4-5 days and I think the next time I played after loading my game again he had all the really nice gear.

I might be wrong..but I dont see the point in trying to get the Gold Idol..all it does is give you the max money and exp for the quest..no rare items or anything..if I need money and exp..I can just kill a drake or something...enlighten me..I could be misinformed

The gold idol unlocks caxton?'s full inventory that includes a very large number of superior weapons along with a 10% discount I believe. Or you can give the gold idol to miranda.

The gold idol is a VERY important item. That's why I needed it to work so badly. Caxton will sell you incredible weapons if you give it to him. Madeleine sells good stuff too. I've remade this character 5 times now and this was looking like the lucky playthrough.... Then this happened. It's been at least a week and a half in my game now and he hasn't updated. I need one badly!

everywhere I have read it states that the reward in exp and money is the only thing that changes with the quality of the idol. The weapons they end up selling is always the same..I'm still going through my first playthrough so I could be wrong..and I think the official strat guide says the same..but those are not always accurate

Try just playing the game and leaving gran soren, and resting in another town for a few days. I think thats what I ended up doing. If you search gold idol you will actually find my topic where the same thing happened. Dont give up hope!
