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.

Vatnir is a male Endings Godlike priest, and a recruitable sidekick in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire . He is the one who invites you to Harbinger’s Watch - an iceberg in southern corner of Deadfire. He is also the leader of the Harbingers - a cult of Rymrgand.

Background[ | ]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

The man speaking before the room wears the same tattered robes as his gathered congregants, but his head is wrapped in soiled strips of linen.

Vatnir is the leader of the cult of Rymrgand at the Harbingers' Watch. Although ostensibly a zealot and a devotee of his god, Vatnir is actually a skeptical opportunist. He puts the blame primarily on the circumstances of his early life. Being a godlike is hard enough, but being a godlike of the god of decay and entropy in the brutal, unforgiving expanse of the White that Wends made it even harder. To make things worse, Vatnir was considered a messenger from the gods, due to his appearance, and many looked to him for guidance and wisdom.

For better or worse, Vatnir decided to take up the mantle and do the best he can to make life bearable for others, even if it means heading a cult of death-obsessed fanatics.
