Where is my book you over embalmed mummy?

I was questing with my latest Paladin through NM last night. I killed Andariel, went to A2 and cleaned out the sewers. I got to Radament, killed him, but he didn't drop the Book of Skill. I cleared potions, gold etc, but still nothing.

I saved and exited, and made a new game. My quest log at this point was showing "return to Atma for a reward." I went to kill Radament again, just in case, but still no Book of Skill.

- Anyone else had this problem?
- I guess there is nothing I can do, and I just have to live without the skill point? Especially annoying since I need all the points I can get on this build.

Can't say it has ever happened to me, but...

Did you try talking to Atma (or anyone else, I guess)? She might drop one on the ground for you. How about switching difficulties and checking again? Lastly, count up your skill points. =P. Maybe you already used it without knowing. ahaha~

If none of those work (chances are high that they won't), maybe you should MP with someone who doesn't have the quest. Who knows? Maybe you'll luck out. It's only one skill point anyway. hehe. Won't break something as OP as a Paladin.

Doesn't the book come from teh chest, not killing him?

@Nagi: Talked to everyone and despite the fact I had two pints of cold beer a few hours beforehand, I'm fairly confident I didn't click the book on autopilot. I thought about the MP option, I'll have to try it sometime.

@silos: Scroll is in the chest, Radament drops the book :tongue:

This happened to me some time ago. After a few tries at killing him I shrugged and just decided to move on. It's just one skill point, right? Anyway, I moved on a few acts then realised that the quest icon for the radamant quest had reverted back to the start of the quest, "Find Radamant's lair in the Sewers". Went back, killed him, got the book no problem.

Hope it's something similar for you.

@Tanksaabas: I had no un-spent points when I did the quest, so I am sure it isn't there.

@SiTro: Thats pretty much my approach, hopefully it will re-appear later like your's did.

I think SiTro's advice is good. I've never had a similar problem in SP but I think similar odd things happened on b.net. I would try rerolling the map seed by MPing or visiting another difficulty and killing Radament again, if you don't feel like MPing as a possible solution.

This happened to me just a few days ago. I didn't even notice the first time I killed him that the book didn't drop, but I was merrily questing along later in Act 2 when I suddenly noticed that the quest was back. Went back, killed him, got my Book of Skill. Counted my skill points, and sure enough, I hadn't gotten it the first time, but I distinctly remembered killing him, as evidenced by my Sewers 3 map being revealed already.

Interesting note: The character this happened to for me was also a paladin...
