  • How to Complete the Quest “Arhu’s Failed Experiment”

Divinity: Original Sin is one of the best turn-based RPGs ever made and has garnered critical acclaim since its first release in 2014, even earning a sequel. There are a lot of things that make Divinity such a great game, but the main feature is its fantastic storytelling and world building.

RELATED: Ranking Larian Studios Games From Best To Worst

You can encounter many quests throughout your adventure in Divinity: Original Sin, but one of your biggest challenges will be defeating the SparkMaster 5,000 in the “Arhu’s Failed Experiment” mission. You might need some tips to defeat this powerful foe, especially if you’re playing on one of the harder difficulties, so here’s everything you need to know to tackle this task.

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

How to Unlock “Arhu’s Failed Experiment” Quest

“Arhu’s Failed Experiment” is a side quest that you can start in two ways. The first method you can use for the mission is Speaking at Arhu on the inside the Legion HQ in Cyseal after joining The Fabulous Five. The second possible way to unlock this mission is to while speaking at Visco on the northeast side of Cyseal. Arhu will give you the SparkMaster 5000 Universal Controller after talking to him.

How to Complete the Quest “Arhu’s Failed Experiment”

There are multiple stages to completing “Arhu’s Failed Experiment”, so below is a guide detailing each of them in the order you need to complete them.

Journey to the Row Tunnel

Speaking Arhu or Visco, you will discover the location of a cave with the SparkMaster 5,000. Follow your quest marker out of Cyseal and to the Rank Tunnel. Upon entering, you will encounter a robot named SparkMaster 5,000, which you must defeat to progress. Visco will also approach you and three soldiers will help you fight the robot.


(Optional) Detonate the SparkMaster 5,000

The easiest way to defeat the SparkMaster 5,000 is to using the Spark Master 5,000 Universal Controller that Arhu gives you if you tell him about the failed experiment. If you have it, you can use it to immediately cause the SparkMaster 5000 to self-destruct.

You must use the (Happy, Happy, Happy) option followed by the (Angry, Angry, Sleepy) option when interacting with the controller for it to explode. If you choose to detonate the SparkMaster 5,000, you will not gain any Robot XP.

If you want to gain XP with the SparkMaster 5,000, you need to defeat it in battle. This will also be the only way to complete “Arhu’s Failed Experiment” if you haven’t collected Arhu’s Controller.

Defeat the SparkMaster 5,000

Visco’s men will aid you in the fight against the SparkMaster 5,000, and you’ll gain more XP for each of the men alive after the fight, including three in total. If every soldier dies during combat, then “Arhu’s failed experiment” the mission will fail.

The combat is quite easy if you play in classic mode, because the Spark Master 5,000 has a weakness at flash. However, lightning will also charge the robot. Once the robot is fully charged, you need to activate the Three nearby levers so that the SparkMaster 5000 uses the load. The SparkMaster 5,000 also primarily uses lightning attacks, so it’s good to have some defense against that type of magic.

You will also have to deal with of them Undead Magi, which will fire magic attacks at you during their turn. Mages will also charge the SparkMaster 5,000 during their turn, and if you don’t activate all three levers in the room, the robot will use its Ultrabolt attack. As such, prioritize defeating undead mages before attacking the SparkMaster 5,000.

If you play Divinity: Original Sin in Tactician Mode or Honor Mode, there will be some differences. First, the SparkMaster 5000 Fire a barrage of missile which inflict fire damage. When the robot launches this attack, the missiles will wait one turn until they reach their target. You should bring some form of fire protection to defend against missiles.

However, the main threat on Tactician or Honor difficulty are the two undead mages who will now sit behind the SparkMaster 5,000, so they are harder to attack. Since the undead mages will now be in the back, you need to prioritize defeating them even more urgently.

After defeating both the SparkMaster 5,000 and the Undead Mages, you will earn up to 1575 XP and can travel to Cyseal to complete the quest “Arhu’s Failed Experiment”.

Talk to slimy

After defeating the SparkMaster 5,000 with at least one of Visco’s men surviving the battle, you can travel to Legion HQ in Cyseal and enter the prison area, where you will encounter Viscous. To tell about Viscous of your victory, and the quest “Arhu’s Failed Experiment” will complete, earning you 1,800 XP. You can also convince Viscous to open the nearby treasure room if you win a rock-paper-scissors mini-game against him.

Dungeon Master’s Tips for Making DND Travel Interesting https://we-are-africa.org/dungeon-masters-tips-for-making-dnd-travel-interesting/ Thu, 16 Jun 2022 15:45:00 +0000 https://we-are-africa.org/dungeon-masters-tips-for-making-dnd-travel-interesting/ Travel and exploration are an integral part of most Dungeons & Dragons games.

Travel and exploration are an integral part of most Dungeons & Dragons games. They have the potential to become one of the most enjoyable aspects of the game for your players, or they can turn into long and boring sessions if not carefully crafted.



RELATED: Dungeons & Dragons: Tips For A First Dungeon Master

There are tools and techniques that Dungeon Masters uses to enhance these parts of their games, and by knowing some of them you can elevate the player experience at your own table. Traveling in real life is an opportunity for adventure, bonding, and discovery, so let our D&D games reflect that.

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

8 Encourage role play

Time spent traveling in the game is a great opportunity for characters to role-play, share their stories, and bond. Especially if the game is new and the characters haven’t spent a lot of time together, the downtime between important events can bring them closer together.

While more experienced players will take advantage of these opportunities themselves, the Dungeon Master can also encourage role-playing at such times. Traveling takes time and it is very unlikely that a group will spend days together without talking to each other. So just reminding players of the passing time and asking them if there’s anything they want to do or say can easily get your players in the mood for roleplaying.

seven Environmental challenges

Your player can traverse multiple environments while on the move, and facing the extreme aspects of each environment can create memorable and challenging encounters. Surviving a sandstorm, crossing narrow cliffs, getting lost in a thick forest, or other similar occurrences are tropes of the fantasy genre for a reason; they are exciting.

Extreme weather conditions, dangerous hazards, and difficult trails are great options to include in your game. You’ll also find great tips in the Dungeon Master’s Guide and other resources that can help you turn these events into challenges. of interesting skills for your players.

6 Random Encounter Tables

Random encounters are a great tool to make long journeys exciting and immersive. Depending on the environment and method of travel, your players may encounter monsters, events, and social encounters that make the world vibrant and introduce a refreshing change of pace to the game.

RELATED: Dungeons & Dragons: Tips For Dungeon Masters To Balance Encounters

There are many tables available online for different environments and for certain levels of players that you can use, but you can always arrange the encounters yourself or take inspiration from the resources available and modify them to suit your world.

There are also several ways to decide which encounter your players will face for each part of the journey. Some DMs will ask their player to roll, making it feel like players are responsible for their own fate. Other DMs might choose to roll in secret and arrange encounters in a more unexpected and surprising way.

5 Use of different vehicles and travel methods

When talking about travel in D&D, most will imagine a group of adventurers traveling long distances on foot, on horseback, or sometimes by boat. These are the most common means of travel in fantasy settings, but there’s nothing wrong with shaking things up once in a while.

Traveling alongside caravans, using flying mounts, jumping through teleportation circles or, if your surroundings allow it, airships and trains can provide a different course of adventure for your players. You can also consider multiple travel methods for different parts of the trip to make a long trip more interesting.


4 Discover monuments

An often missed opportunity for new DMs is to establish a more realistic world through landmarks and points of interest. When traveling between two major cities on your world, it is unrealistic for the entire journey to be through uninhabited wilderness or empty roads.

Including small and subtle landmarks along the way can help your players immerse themselves in your game, interact with more aspects of the world, and experience various little adventures. Small towns and villages, abandoned ruins, secret hideouts and isolated societies can be some examples of interesting discoveries during the journey.


3 Meet other adventurers

It’s easy for players to think they’re the only heroes and saviors, and while that’s not necessarily a problem in a D&D game, it might not be the sentiment you want to convey in as a Dungeon Master, especially in the first, lower levels. In a living fantasy world, many adventurers travel the world to help those in need or earn extra money.

RELATED: Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeon Master Tips for Creating Memorable NPCsThe best way to communicate this aspect of the world to your players is to meet other adventurers. Voyages are a great opportunity for these encounters, and you can create small side adventures where your players help other adventurers and share victory, or even battle them for valuable treasure.


2 Monitoring of supplies and rations

There are many D&D groups that focus on the survival aspect and mechanics of the game. But for those who don’t find this style of gameplay interesting on its own, survival can still be an interesting challenge while traveling long distances.

Tracking the exact amount of rations and supplies is a nuisance for players and DMs, but you can always estimate how many days of travel characters will start to run out of food and water. Without spells such as Goodberry or Create Food and Water, your players might need to hunt and forage, trade with passing caravans, or try to pick up their pace and reach a town before they run out of supplies.


1 Prepare hidden treasures

Traveling and exploring go hand in hand in a D&D game, and the DM should be prepared to reward their players’ curiosity with little treasures. If your players ask for details or search for interesting places during the journey, and they always end up empty-handed, they will be discouraged from exploring in the future.

Preparing a list of small hidden treasures, such as buried coin chests, lost weapons and items, or unique and interesting magic items can help you both improvise when your players start exploring and reward their attention and their good perception or investigation rolls.

Now Lowe is suing American Airlines, which he says provided law enforcement with the information that led to his arrest. Lowe, a resident of Coconino County, Arizona, is seeking a jury trial and seeking unspecified damages.

An American Airlines spokesperson told the Washington Post in an email that the company was investigating what happened to Lowe but did not comment further.

Lowe’s attorney, Scott Palmer, told the Post in an email that he believes the airline was responsible for his client’s arrest and incarceration. “Without American’s release of Michael’s name and information as the sole suspect, the detective would never have issued the warrants,” Palmer wrote. “It all starts with the disclosure of Michael’s name and his name only.”

Disabled woman sues American Airlines, alleging she was ‘humiliated’ when she tried to use restroom

The chain of events that led to Lowe being imprisoned for 17 days began on May 12, 2020, when an unidentified man robbed a duty-free shop at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. Detectives would later use the surveillance video to track the suspect until he boarded American Airlines Flight 2248, which departed for Reno around 7 p.m. – shortly after the robbery.

Lowe was also on that flight, having arrived after a connecting flight from his home in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Unbeknownst to Lowe, DFW Airport Police obtained a search warrant on June 18 ordering American Airlines to provide “all recorded travel data” for passengers on Flight 2248. Instead of relaying the information for everyone on the flight, however, the company reportedly gave details to the police on just one: Lowe.

The airline did so, the suit says, although Lowe did not match the description of the suspect presented by police in the search warrant affidavit: a tall, thin, white or Hispanic man with a haircut. military-style short who was wearing a black polo shirt and blue jeans when he robbed the store and then boarded the plane.

The airline tip, according to the lawsuit, led to the issuance of two warrants for the arrest of Lowe on June 30 – one for criminal burglary of a building and another for criminal mischief. Authorities entered those warrants into the database of the National Crime Information Center, which links law enforcement across the country.

There, warrants waited over a year without incident.

Then, on July 4, 2021, police in Tucumcari, NM responded to a disturbance at a holiday celebration that Lowe attended while vacationing there with friends. The police checked the identifications of the participants and, after discovering Lowe’s warrants, arrested him.

Lowe told them there had been a mistake; he couldn’t remember the last time he had been in County Tarrant and didn’t know where it was. Realizing he wasn’t going to talk about his arrest, Lowe told his friends not to worry; he would clear things up quickly and be back soon.

“He was wrong,” the lawsuit says.

Instead of returning to the festivities, Lowe spent 17 days enduring an “unending nightmare” inside the Quay County Detention Center in Tucumcari, according to the lawsuit. Upon arrival, he was ordered to strip naked and prove that he was not smuggling into the prison.

Lowe claims he barely slept in jail, which he described in his trial as “the most grueling physical test of [his] life.” At the “bottom of the pecking order,” he was forced to sleep on the concrete floor most of the time. Even when he secured a metal bunk, he could not sleep. and screamed for hours. One inmate, deprived of medication for his psychiatric disorder, shouted ‘random and incoherent’ church hymns throughout the night, the lawsuit says. Another vomited and moaned for three days in a row, he adds.

A “palpable sense of threat” infected the prison, according to the lawsuit. The violence erupted over trivial things — shared TVs, phone access, or for no apparent reason. In the suit, Lowe said he “was forced to watch” an inmate punched a young man three times in the face in quick succession. A week later, a wall was still stained with the young inmate’s blood.

“To have to sit in silence and not come to the aid of another human being – especially someone vulnerable like the young inmate – was excruciating,” the lawsuit said.

Overcrowding has resulted in “extremely unsanitary conditions,” he says. The smell of urine and feces reeked so strongly that Lowe often breathed through his mouth and used prison clothes to cover his nose. When he couldn’t take the stench any longer, he asked the prison staff for cleaning supplies. They gave him a spray bottle of water with “just a dash of disinfectant and a dirty mop with no bucket” added.

Hyper aware of his “intense physical vulnerability” in the prison showers, Lowe avoided bathing for days until he could no longer “bear the physical discomfort of the filth of his own condition”. He estimated that he showered four or five times during his 17 days in prison.

The Quay County Detention Center did not immediately respond to a request from the Post early Wednesday.

Officials put the wrong man in a mental institution for 2 years. When he objected, they called him “delusional.”

On the 17th day of his incarceration, a guard called Lowe and, without explanation, told him he was released. Lowe was given the clothes he was arrested in and walked out of jail “for nothing”. He bought a Greyhound ticket and, after being labeled homeless and kicked out of a McDonald’s restroom, boarded a bus for what was supposed to be a 12-hour ride back to Flagstaff. But the bus broke down, turning the trip into a two-day odyssey.

“As he crossed the threshold of his house, Mr. Lowe allowed himself to sob until he could no longer stand.”

According to the lawsuit, the charges against Lowe were ultimately dismissed. Nonetheless, his arrest and incarceration “shaken his identity to the core and clouded his view of the world,” according to the suit. Logically, he knows that a repeated experience is unlikely. But “his fear cannot be rationalized…it infects virtually every decision and action he makes.”

While shopping, Lowe worries that she might forget to pay for something. He gets anxious when he sees patrol cars, depending on the costume. He rushes through conversations with National Park Service police, experiences he used to have as part of his job as an outdoor guide.

“Because of this intense emotional pain, anguish, anxiety, depression and loss of self-esteem, Mr. Lowe became a man desperate to find himself,” the lawsuit states.

He blames American Airlines. The company should have provided airport police with information on each passenger listed on the flight manifest, or those matching a general description of a suspect. Instead, the airline negligently conducted its own investigation and wrongly identified Lowe as the only suspect in the airport police department’s investigation, the lawsuit alleges.

This, according to the prosecution, “likely led” to Lowe’s arrest for a crime he says he never committed.

Welcome back to Timeout! This month I got spooky with a new book about a haunted road trip and spoke to one of the authors about their experiences with the paranormal. Em Schulz and Christine Schiefer are the hosts of the hugely popular, award-winning true crime/paranormal podcast And that’s why we drink. They release their first book, A haunted road atlas, which is full of travel tips, drink recommendations, haunted places, and more. The guide also includes some of the country’s most notorious crime scenes and paranormal locations.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to speak with co-writer Em Schulz about their experiences with the supernatural, their favorite true crime/paranormal locations, A haunted road atlas, and more. Em is a member of the Ghost Club, Society of Psychical Research, Parapsychological Association, and Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

Read on for my full interview with Em Schulz!


Disgusting fucking: You and Christine Schiefer have an award-winning podcast called And that’s why we drink and you’re both releasing your first book on May 31, titled A haunted road atlas. How did you become involved in the paranormal and can you talk a bit about your experiences as a paranormal investigator?

Em Schulz: I’ve been interested in ghosts since I was little. When I was seven years old, my grandfather passed away and about a week after he passed away, everyone in the family started having their own weird, unrelated experiences. My cousin had an experience a week after he died where she took a picture of him when he obviously shouldn’t have been there. My mother saw him in her dreams. When I was sleeping in the middle of the night, I woke up to him sitting on the bed, and just stroking my leg and smiling at me. The next day, I said to my mother, “I’m going to grow up and be a ghost hunter”, which, oddly, worked. I think my mother expected this not to happen [laughs]. Growing up, I was really into anything scary; I’ve always wanted to go to haunted houses or buildings, or do ghost tours when we travel.

When I got to college, I ended up becoming a ghost tour guide, which was sort of a pseudo-paranormal investigator early in my career. I worked at a museum across from this building, and I went there to ask if it was haunted. And I guess they thought I was asking for a job. I don’t know how they came to that conclusion because I just wanted to know some general ghost stuff on my lunch break, and I guess they read it when I was looking to start working for them. They did ghost tours and saw that I was interested and told me to come back Friday night and they paid me twenty dollars after the ghost tour. After that, each of my weekends at college was spent doing ghost tours with them, doing some prep with gear beforehand, and doing my own little ghost hunts before our guests arrived. Thanks to this, I entered the real world of ghost hunting, then I made groups of volunteers as I moved. I ended up in Boston for a while and made a volunteer group there where I would investigate. That’s how I broke into the world [laughs].

comics: Through your podcast, you’ve covered hundreds of cases involving everything from hauntings to alien abductions and cryptids. Can you share your most disturbing paranormal experience or scariest case you have investigated?

ES: When I was working as a ghost tour guide, I had some really scary experiences. I remember being alone upstairs in an attic setting everything up before our guests entered. I had already turned on the gear and was doing my own little ghost hunting thing, since I had time to kill. All of a sudden I saw this big mass of solid black; you couldn’t see through. It was like a shadow, and I heard a growl. I really don’t remember anything else. I don’t remember him coming near me or anything, but all of a sudden my hand started hurting and I had a big scratch on my hand for a while. It’s really the only time I was scratched or touched by something.

There was another time I was at a friend’s house, and she always said the place looked haunted, but she had no real proof. I was laying in my bed and I swear I felt something grab my ass [laughs]. It was as if something was cut while I slept. I shared a bed and she was a childhood friend of mine, so I thought she was trying to make a joke or something. So I said, “Haha, very funny,” and when I looked, she wasn’t even in bed yet. There was a print on the cover like someone grabbed me. About two weeks later when she moved in, she moved some of the furniture that was in the building when she moved in, and there was a whole stain of decay. So that was sort of his last proof that someone had died in the building, and it was haunted.

comics: As I mentioned earlier, you and Christine wrote your first book, A haunted road atlas. The book is a guide to some of the country’s most infamous crime scenes and hauntings, and also includes recommendations for bars, restaurants, bizarre museums, travel tips, and more cool stuff! Out of all the places in the book, do you have a favorite haunted place and a favorite crime scene and why?

ES: For a crime scene, it would also be a paranormal location because we’re writing about the Hotel Cecil, which is huge in Los Angeles. I feel like a lot of people in the paranormal are familiar with Hotel Cecil, especially if you live nearby. I would say this is my favorite true crime and paranormal location if I comb it, simply because so many stories have happened there. He’s probably full of energy. But in terms of the paranormal, I’ve never been there before. In fact, I discovered the place while I was writing this book and had never heard of it before.

Near Cincinnati, Ohio, there’s a place called Sedamsville Rectory and I’ve never heard of it, but, wow, it’s a scary place! I don’t know too much about its history, all I know is that even though there were a few priests who lived there, they all seemed to have a checkered past. There was a priest who was notorious for molesting children, so there’s a lot of negative energy there. One of the current owners is regularly owned in the building. They’ve done a bunch of guest spots on TV talking about it and the owners are aware of what’s going on. It’s super scary. Since the last time I checked, I think they were trying to turn it into Airbnb. It works pretty well if you’re into morbid tourism. It’s a place that interests me a lot, but also where I never want to go [laughs].

comics: A haunted road atlas will be released on May 31. Where can people buy it and are you working on anything new involving the paranormal?

ES: There are a few bookstores where we are going to book signings. We’re doing one in Cincinnati, we’re doing one in Boston. You can buy it online and my favorite is that it will be in Boston at the Strand. Boston is Christine and I’s hometown because that’s where we met, so it’s a special city for us. As for working on other projects, we don’t have anything in the works right now in terms of books, but I guess it depends on how many people like this book. We are definitely open to writing more. Maybe in the future it will be a series.

You can pick up your copy from A haunted road atlas right now!

The British have a reputation for tipping. We are seen as bad tippers by other countries — we don’t like to tip, we might even be mean. But the truth is, we’re just not used to tipping very often because there are no real tipping “rules” here. If this is your first visit to the UK, tipping can seem like a minefield. When do you tip? Who do you tip? How much do you tip? There is nothing more embarrassing than not understanding the etiquette of the country you are staying in.

When friends of mine came from abroad, I received frantic messages from them in a restaurant, wondering if the waitress would be offended if she tipped him directly. My friend wondered if this would be frowned upon and it might seem like she was suggesting the waitress was poor. As I explained to my friend at the time, tipping in the UK is quite a casual affair and you are unlikely to offend anyone, whatever you do. There isn’t really a tipping ‘culture’ here in the UK and it’s more based on ‘how you feel about the service’.

That said, it’s confusing for anyone visiting, so to help you understand when, who and how much, here’s a guide to tipping etiquette in four of the most common tipping situations while you’re in the UK. United.

To eat

Tipping is very common after finishing a meal in a restaurant here in the UK. When you receive your invoice at the end of the evening, take a quick look at it. If there is a service charge at the end of the bill, that’s your tip included and you don’t need to give anything extra.

Of course, if you feel like you received amazing service and want to leave more, you can. Note that this is not common practice here in the UK. Some restaurants include a tip on the bill and some don’t. Most don’t because diners don’t like it. Brits tend to object to being told how much to tip or whether to leave anything.

If there is a service charge included and you are unhappy with the service you received, you can request that it be removed, and many locals do. If there is no service charge on the bill, you can tip, but there really is no obligation to do so. Most diners, if satisfied with the service, leave a small tip on the table as they leave. This should be around 10% of your bill, but again, how much you leave is up to you.

As I told my friend who was freaking out about what to do at the end of his meal, you normally wouldn’t give it to the waitress, but leave it on the table when you left. In most restaurants, the amount you leave won’t go directly to that particular waitress anyway, as all servers are required to hand in their tips to be split equally. That’s a whole other debate. A lot of people think it’s unfair, while others think it’s absolutely fair.

If you are buying take out food there is sometimes a tip jar on the counter, and again whether you tip or not is entirely up to you. I don’t think I’ve ever left a tip in a takeout or seen someone else do it. If you drink and eat at a bar, you are not expected to tip the bartender. If you really want to, you can tell him to “keep the change” when you pay with a bill higher than your bill price, or you can say “and one for you” when you order your drink, implying that you buy a drink as a thank you. It’s a bit of a throwback as bartenders these days won’t drink while they work, but it’s a nice way to say thank you for service. You certainly wouldn’t tip the bartender every time he pours you a drink. It should be noted here that in most bars in the UK you pay as you go rather than opening a tab. You can ask to open a tab and then pay the bill at the end and tip if you want, but most people pay the bartender every time they order a drink, and tipping in a bar is almost unknown in UK.

Taxis

With the rise of app-based taxi services like Uber, it’s much easier to tip your driver if you’re happy with the service. You just do it through the app, and it’s very common in the UK. If you are happy with your driver, you can leave a tip and a good review on the app, and drivers are as happy with a 5-star review as they are with a tip.

But if you take a black cab or other private taxi hire, it’s a bit more inconvenient. If the bill is pre-calculated, it is difficult to tip and most people would not tip the driver in this case. If you’re paying cash, a good way to do this is to round the price to the nearest pound or just say “keep the change” if you give them a note. Again, you’re not supposed to tip the taxi driver at all, it’s an entirely personal choice, and your driver won’t be offended if you don’t tip.

Hotels

Tipping hotel employees is probably the most confusing and complicated of all areas of tipping in the UK. As with everything else, you don’t have to tip at all and no one expects it. The hotel worker who is most often tipped is the bellhop or bellboy. He’s the person who helps bring your bags to your room, and it’s okay to give them a few pounds for that.

Housekeepers don’t usually get tipped, but some people like to leave small gifts for them in the room after they check out. You can also leave a few pounds in the room when you’re gone, as a nice surprise for your housekeeper. It all depends on how good your hotel is, but if you have a doorman you can give them 2-5 pounds when you leave if you want.

Again, this is by no means intended, and most Brits wouldn’t. It’s not normal to tip when ordering room service, or to tip at the hotel bar or restaurant, especially if it’s all on your hotel bill.

Tourist guides

If you take a bus tour you will usually find that the driver has a cup or something where you can tip at the end of the tour. On rare occasions your guide will board the bus to ask the driver for tips, but this is unusual. If you’re taking a walking tour, it’s not common to tip your guide. I think it mostly comes down to that British clumsiness. We don’t really like handing over money that way, directly to a service worker, and prefer to leave it in a jar, or better yet, leave it somewhere to find it after we leave! If you don’t have such British awkwardness, you can, of course, tip whenever and however you like, and your guide will be very grateful.

Other places where you could tip

One of the most common service workers to be tipped is your barber at the salon. It’s a strange anomaly, but we seem perfectly comfortable with it. Hairstylists are regularly tipped 10% of the bill, and this also sometimes extends to other salon workers, and even retail workers from time to time.

It all comes down to our desire to give a little extra when we are very happy with the service received and nothing at all when we are not! For this reason, no one expects you to tip and if you do, they will see it as an appreciation for the service you have provided them. But if you don’t tip they won’t assume they’ve done wrong, as most UK customers don’t tip at all. Although servers really appreciate tips to make a little extra pay, they don’t rely on tips to make enough money, and if you say a genuine “thank you” and tell them how awesome it was and that you will be back is actually just as meaningful to them as a tip. Customer retention is very important in the UK and customer retention comes before tipping for most businesses.

So, of course, tip if you think the service was great and don’t if you don’t want to. No one will be offended whatever you do. There is no right or wrong way.
