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.

Main quests[ | ]

The Hollowing of the Dyrwood The White March
The Hollowing of the Dyrwood is the main quest line in the game, centering on Waidwen's Legacy, its impact on the people of the Free Palatinate of Dyrwood, and the protagonists' struggle to come to terms with their status as a Watcher. The White March is an additional main quest line added by the expansion The White March - Part I and continued by the expansion The White March - Part II. It is integrated into the main campaign, so you don't have to start a separate game.
Act I

You need to solve Never Far from the Queen before the White March will start.

Act II
Part 1
Part 2
Act IV

As soon as you jump into the pit, you are unable to finish any previous quests.
