Pillars of Eternity Wiki

The Seeds of Deception is a quest in The Forgotten Sanctum.


Llengrath or Tayn requested I search for an ancient arcane artifact of Engwith while I explore the body of Wael.


Depending on who you sided with during Root and Branch and A Shout in the Dark, Llengrath or Tayn will request that you find the Godseed after completing both quests. The reward changes depending on who you sided with and your final dialog choices upon completion. This quest can only be done along side The Inner Mysteries.

(Note- You might not be able to get this quest if you dont do both quests for a single mage)

Descend into The Upper Bowels and collect two of the pieces of the godseed. Each are located on a pedestal with a light blue glow.

  • The first is found in the north east corner of the map in the Archives Subbasement.
  • The second is found on the west side of the map in the Memory Siphon area.

Jump down into the Passage to the Depths. The final piece is located opposite the boss.

Return the Godseed Inner Core for your reward:

  • Tayn: Will grant you Tayn's Gratitude. His plans for the item are a little murky, but claims he will plant the seed to grow a new titan.
  • Llengrath: Will grant you Glasanam Argûes and plans to use the item to grow a vessel for Llengrath.
  • Optional: Keep the godseed instead. The godseed can be used to upgrade a weapon to Mythic. However, this will reward only XP and the wizard will be upset.

0 The Seeds of Deception
10000 Llengrath requested I search for an ancient arcane artifact of Engwith while I explore the body of Wael.
Alternate descriptions
40001 Tayn wants me to retrieve an artifact from the body of Wael - a godseed, the mechanism and blueprints to build a god's body from scratch.
1 Access the body of Wael.
10001 I won't be able to explore the body if I don't find a way to enter it. I must gain access to the titanic form.
2 Enter Wael's body.
10002 I've gained access to the massive entity below. I can now descend into the fleshy depths.
3 Search Wael's body for the artifact.
10003 Now that I've entered Wael's body, I can search it for the artifact.

I shouldn't think about that too hard.

20000 I located what appears to be part of an arcane artifact.
20001 I located a second piece of the artifact.
4 Search the Heart of Mystery.
10004 I've found two pieces of the artifact, but the core still seems to be missing. I might find it deeper within the body.
5 Return the godseed.
10005 I've located the complete artifact. Now I should return it to the archmage.
End states
Yes 30000 I turned the godseed over to Tayn.
Yes 30001 I granted the godseed to Llengrath.
Yes 30002 I returned the schema to the Oracle of Wael.
- 30003 I kept the pieces of the godseed for myself.
- 30004 Llengrath won't speak to me given how I resolved the issue of Wael's body. I suppose the godseed artifact belongs to me now.
