A Rising Star is a Task of the DLCThe Forgotten Sanctum in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. The watcher needs to help Bekarna find her grimoire.


Important NPCs



  1. Scour the Archives for Bekerna's grimoire.
  2. Restore Bekerna's grimoire.
  3. Return the grimoire to Bekerna.



  • When you explore The Enclosures, you can find a wizard named Bekerna. Finish her first quest Wasting Minds (The book she needs (Advanced Wistful Stargazing) can be found at Alcove of Incision of Hall of Reconfiguration. You need to steal it or fight librarians.) And she will ask you to help her get back her grimoire.
  • Bekarna's Depleted Grimoire can be found at Quarantined Section, In the southwest room. Take it to The Oratory of Wael, and place it on the table of chief librarian's room in midnight.  (has to be at night otherwise it can't absorb enough starlight)
  • Bring the Grimoire back to Bekarna, and she will give you a new quest Out of the Eternal Horizons.





  • A Rising Star
    • Bekarna lost her grimoire in the Halls Obscured. She thinks it might have been cataloged somewhere in the Archives by now.
  • Scour the Archives for Bekarna's grimoire
    • In the Halls Obscured, it seems that all books flow through the Archives eventually. Bekarna's grimoire may have ended up there.
    • A note in the Archives mentioned an anomalous grimoire that reacted to being carried into an eastern area of the Oratory of Wael.
    • The eastern area of the Oratory of Wael has a breach in the ceiling, exposing the space to outside light.
  • Return the grimoire to Bekarna
    • Exposure to starlight restored Bekarna's grimoire. No doubt she'll be grateful to see it returned.
  • Restore Bekarna's grimoire
    • Bekarna's grimoire seems lifeless, almost devoid of arcane power. Perhaps there's some way to recover its functionality.
    • According to the note I found, bringing the grimoire to an eastern area of the Oratory of Wael may help restore its power.
    • Bekarna said that her grimoire thrives on starlight.
    • The eastern area of the Oratory of Wael has a breach in the ceiling, exposing the space to outside light.
    • Nothing happened when I exposed the grimoire to daylight. I could always try the same thing at a different hour. Bekarna might also have some advice.


End States

  • Bekarna is dead.
  • Bekarna's grimoire has been returned.
