*Paladins have a chance of dropping Goblin berries or having them in their vendor inventory. You find a couple of dead Paladins in the valley, but you could theoretically kill or beat-up every single Paladin in the game for the maximum chance of getting berries, which is how you get to a number like that. If you do not do that, you should maybe get one or two on average.

Additional information:

The chapter order of some of the skills is not entirely mandatory. You could for example focus more on One-handed skill and finish that up first, before going for Bow-skill. However some of the permanent bonuses (like Thekla’s Stew for example) are only available in the later chapters, so bear that in mind.

You are going to be a Dragon hunter which means you want to learn how to pull Shadow beast horns because there is going to be a quest to sell those to Buster on Onar’s farm. Each horn gives 300 EXP (as well as 300 gold) which realistically means that you are going to get those 3 LP back fairly soon. There are 9 Shadow beasts in Khorinis alone (more spawn in later chapters and you can also find some in Jharkendar and the Valley)

Minecrawler plates are entirely optional and only necessary if you want to get the armor (which is advisable in my opinion)

The other stuff is pretty much mandatory for completing the game or for say getting the Dragonhunter armor.

Also, make sure to have a properly optimized and enhanced Gothic 2 Installation with Spine
