The Champion of the Hunt is a Quest of the DLCSeeker, Slayer, Survivor in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. By completing the challenges presented by one of the Faces, the Watcher has earned the right to represent one of the Faces of the Hunt in the Crucible's bloodiest battle.

Important NPCs

 

Objectives

  1. Attend the coronation in the Hall of Memories.
  2. Defeat the other chosen and seize the title of Champion of the Hunt.
  3. Commune with the Faces of the Hunt.

 

Walkthrough

  • After you complete the challenges presented by one of the Faces (The Crucible), agree to represent it in a three-way free-for-all battle, the winner of which is to be crowned Champion of the Hunt.
  • The arena will be flooded and a colossal grub (Krovix of the Deep) will appear and attack you. It's weak against intellect afflictions.
  • After you won the fight, return to Pool of Memories and receive your reward.
  • Anoint yourself in the waters and be drawn into the Beyond. There you will meet three souls Erūke, Aexica and Whehami. Learn from them the truth about the hunt.
  • You can defeat Whehami and Aexica, restoring the flow of souls between Kazuwari and the beyond. OR You can sacrifice Konstanten's soul to replace the Faces. OR You can convince Whehami and Aexica to stand down with Eruke's aid. OR You can convince Whehami to replace his soul with that of a mighty beast (see next quest).
  • You can also use Muatu's soul to replace the Faces. The ending is further determined by how many souls you allowed him to absorb in the Crucible.
  • Do not use the Tooth of Toamowhai to leave the Crucible's connection to the Beyond shattered, or you will miss a reward later and get the bad ending.

Objectives

  • The Champion of the Hunt
    • I have earned the right to represent one of the Faces of the Hunt in the Crucible's bloodiest battle. If I prove victorious, I will be named Champion of the Hunt - and become able to commune with the Faces of the Hunt themselves.
  • Attend the coronation in the Hall of Memories
    • The carnage is over, and I walked away victorious. I am now the Champion of the Hunt. The crowning ceremony awaits my arrival at the Pool of Memories.
  • Defeat the other chosen and seize the title of Champion of the Hunt
    • Each of the Faces of the Hunt have chosen a contender. The next battle will be a free-for-all, pitting my pack against two others. When I'm ready, I can gaze into the Pool of Memories and face my most difficult challenge yet.
  • Commune with the Faces of the Hunt
    • Now that I've been crowned Champion, I can speak with the Faces of the Hunt and learn more about Kazuwari's crisis. I can commune with them through the Pool of Memories.
    • I entered a pocket of the Beyond through the Pool of Memories. Answers - and perhaps a resolution to the troubles plaguing Kazuwari - are at hand.
    • I met Erūke, the kith soul behind the Surviving Face. They told me that Whehami, the Slaying Face, severed the island's connection to the Beyond. Erūke wants this bond restored.
    • Aexica, the kith soul behind the Seeking Face, wants me to defeat Whehami and restore the island's connection to the Beyond.
    • Whehami is holding Galawain's realm hostage, severed from the rest of the Beyond. He wants another soul - mine - to take the place of the Faces of the Hunt so that he may walk again in the flesh.
    • It seems that though centuries separated their lives from one another, Aexica, Erūke, and Whehami became the Faces of the Hunt at the same time. Perhaps some deeper bond links the three.
    • Aexica believes that any strong soul could replace Whehami's in the Beyond. Perhaps I could convince him to accept another's.
    • Erūke believes they can help me convince Whehami to stand down by using the connection the two share through their single soul.
    • Aexica provided Whehami with the knowledge he needed to sever Kazuwari's ties to the Beyond.
    • Aexica admitted that she manipulated Whehami into clogging the flow of souls between Kazuwari and the Beyond for her own ends.
    • Whehami asked me to visit my wrath upon Aexica for her betrayal.

 

End States

  • I defeated Whehami and Aexica and restored the flow of souls between Kazuwari and the Beyond.
  • I sacrificed Konstanten's soul as a replacement for the Faces of the Hunt. I then used the Tooth of Toamowhai to restore the flow of souls between Kazuwari and the Beyond.
  • I convinced Whehami to remain in the Beyond. He let me undo the damage and restore the flow of souls between Kazuwari and the Beyond.
  • I convinced Whehami that I can exchange his soul for that of Galawain's mighty beast. All that remains is to hunt it down.
  • With Erūke's aid, I convinced the others to stand down. I then restored the flow of souls between Kazuwari and the Beyond.
  • I sacrificed Muātu's soul as a replacement for the Faces of the Hunt. I then used the Tooth of Toamowhai to restore the flow of souls between Kazuwari and the Beyond.
