Spellbound Side Job Walkthrough

The description for the start of the Spellbound side job

Follow these steps to complete the Spellbound side job:

  1. Go to Nix, who is in a back room at Afterlife.
  2. Talk to Nix to learn about a spell book he found someone trying to sell online. He wants V to buy it for him in case there is trouble. The contact’s alias is R3n0.
  3. Leave Afterlife and call R3n0.
  4. R3n0 will quickly relay an address and demand that V come alone.
  5. Go to the address and meet R3n0 in an exclusive corporate bar. She will inform V that the magic book is hidden somewhere safe.
    The contact offers the goods at a price.
  6. There are a couple of ways to get the coordinates of the stash from R3n0, but this is far from the hardest choice V makes in Cyberpunk. Whatever you choose, remember that she is armed with a Palica shotgun and has control over the camera system around V:
    • Access the laptop next to her at the bar. To get around the code on your laptop, Jack in and use at least one Datamine Daemon. Of the four files on the laptop, one has the coordinates of the spellbook, and two others inform V that R3n0’s real name is Clarity. She works for Hard Wire Ltd. who tasked her with copying the spellbook and destroying it, which she chose not to do…

    • Pay her 7300 swirls. If she paid the due date, she will simply tweak the V coordinates. Giving her grief for being a petty fraud does nothing but violate her dignity.
  7. Go to the coordinates and open the pink case there to find an old-fashioned tablet called “The Book of Spells”. Johnny, ever the cool anti-hero, describes it as being at the top of his time. Loot it.
  8. It is possible to hack the spell book before bringing it back to Nix. This results in unlocking the spellbook and getting a crafting recipe for the legendary System Reset quickhack. This quick hack is especially useful. It has a passive effect that reduces RAM cost after defeating an enemy that stacks up to six times.
