Pillars of Eternity Wiki

In response to patch v1. to Pillars of Eternity (June 6, 2024), the random loot tables shown on the wiki have been updated. These changes may take time to propegate.

As a result, random loot data is no longer accurate to old versions of the game, including all console ports. We'll be working to provide a mechanism to switch between pre-patch and post-patch loot for console players.

This page lists all quests in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Main quests[ | ]

Following the destruction of Caed Nua by Eothas, who occupied the adra statue devoted to Maros Nua, the Watcher ends up with a maimed soul and a desperate need to find the god to save his soul and himself. However, they will find out more than they bargained with, as with their hunt for Thaos.

Companion quests[ | ]

Bounties are particularly difficult combat quests that serve to provide a late game challenge - and a good source of coin. If you happen to kill a bounty target without the quest active, you can simply turn in the bounty immediately after receiving it.

Quest level[ | ]

The quest level as shown in the journal (by hovering over the the book icon under the quest title) gives the player an indication of the relative difficulty of the quest in relation to their level.

The base quest level is manually set by the game designers. Although this level doesn't actually influence any gameplay mechanics itself, it generally takes into account (and is therefore a good indicator of):

  • The average level of creatures, enemies and traps encountered, in areas related to the quest. This is expressed as a location's "expected player level" (also called "recommended level"). The quest level averages out to be around the same level as the locations prominently featured.
  • The difficulty of dialogue checks.

If the quest level is equal to the player's level, the difficulty of the quest will be as close to as it was originally designed, generally meaning that enemies faced will be close to the player's level, and dialogue checks will be generally passable.

Note that the quest level is adjusted with Level scaling in order to match the perceived difficulty of areas/encounters and in turn the enemies found within the quest, though the quest level itself does not affect scaling whatsoever. This should be kept in mind, as the quest pages on the wiki list the base/unscaled quest level - not one that is adjusted.
