The Drunk Sailor is a task in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Rum-Dumb Riggere wants you to free him from his cell in the Port Maje jail.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Rum-Dumb Riggere's freedom can be achieved through a number of means:

  • Riggere's freedom can be purchased from Savia for Copper pands (cp)400.
  • Assisting Savia with the task, Restoring Order, allows you to negotiate a discounted price of Copper pands (cp)300.
  • The cell door can be lockpicked with Mechanics 3. You can find a couple of lockpicks in a hidden straw pile towards the back of the left most cell (requires at least 14 Perception to reveal).
  • The Port Maje Jail Key can be acquired by pick-pocketing Savia (requires at least 1 Sleight of Hand). It is advised to unlock the door while in stealth as unlocking the door within Savia's view will turn her hostile.
  • A Cinder Bomb can be placed on the wall outside of the Port Maje jail. Cinder bombs are available from Norgund on the upper floor of The Kraken's Eye.
  • Lastly, you can just kill Savia and loot the key from her.


  • If you unlock the door through illegal means without opening it, then bail him out legally with money, Savia will say "What? I know I locked this..." when she opens the door.
  • Savia rests away from the cell at certain time.
  • Bailing Rum-Dumb Riggere out means you have to pay his wage Copper pands (cp)2 per day even though your ship's still broken.
