I'm aiming for a 100% wisdom/honor game using the walkthrough, but it doesn't tell me who the murderer was. I won't bore you all with what I tried before resorting to asking you guys, so... who it it? :?

It's more satisfying if you work it out for herself. Make a list of all people (with portraits) in the game, and cross out everybody who either lacks a motive, or has an alibi.

For instance, it wasn't Morholt, because he lacks a motive (and also, he's way too large to fit in the castle). Likewise, it wasn't Taliesin, because he was in the Theylann camp at the time (which the mercenaries will confirm).

There are two important clues here:
* The assassin leaves behind a piece of cloak. Who knows about cloaks?
* The assassin appears to be murdered with Branwyn's dagger. Who knows about daggers?

Oh.
I thought that (s)he wasn't the murderer, because I had previously tried all possible combinations of motives for her/him. Thanks a lot.

I really couldn't come to the right conclusion. Every suspect and motive that seemed logical to me were wrong. So at the end I just started to select all the answers, one by one, until I got the right one. So now I know both the identity of the murderer and the motive, but could somebody please explain to me, how was I supposed to reach this conclusion logically? What clue did I miss? I didn't even find

So could you tell me what clues do point to this suspect? And, PLEASE, don't give me any answers like " figure it out by yourself by carefully analyzing every clue you find". I don't have any earlier saves anymore, so to examine everything one more time I would have to replay the whole game. But I have already replayed it nearly from the start several times, to finish some side quests, and it would be really annoying to do it once more.

Ashe tells you about that.

Simply put, everybody else either has an alibi, or lacks a motive, or both. For instance, you know where

And as I said in my previous post, both the piece of cloak and the dagger are clues. Unsurprisingly,

Means, motive, alibi. Elimination, my dear Watson.

So I must have forgotten about that dialogue with Ashe.
But, if I show the piece of cloak to

cloak and verify that it was torn? If not, how can I deduce that it was his cloak and not someone else's?
