Walkthrough

  • Allow Xoti to collect souls when you travel together.
  • Talk to Xoti to find a solution to her nightmares. She will tell you she want to try a cleansing ritual before the carved statue in the Temple of Gaun.
  • At Neketaka, take Xoti to the temple of Gaun to perform the rite. (after she asked you to do so)
  • Find more souls for Xoti to harvest, after that she will have a get more nightmare. DIscuss with Xoti, suggest her to offloading the souls through an Adra pillar or to animancers for experiments with the rebirth cycle.
  • If you persuade Xoti to help animancers for their experiments, head to The Sacred Stair and talk to Flaune Elette
  • You can also take Xoti to any of the activated pillars of Adra and let her touch it. Depend on your previous conversations with Xoti, she will choose either dark or light side of Guan. 
    • If Xoti chose the dark, the death side of Gaun, the souls will be kept in her lantern, she experiences a revelation, putting her at peace with the dreams yet giving some ominous dialogue about reaping feeling "painfully good". You receive Luminous Adra Mantle, can be used for upgrade Threshing Aura of Xoti's Lantern.
    • If Xoti chose the light, the rebirth side of Gaun, the souls will be released, her dreams stop, and she will thank the Watcher for making her "lighter". You receive Luminous Adra Mantle, can be used for upgrade Light of the Dawnstar of Xoti's Lantern.

It is our best means for surviving once Eothas breaks the Wheel. I will introduce Xoti to Flaune Elette, the lead researcher at the Spire of the Soul-Seers.

    • I encouraged Xoti to embrace the darkness of Gaun's sickle - of the fall before spring.
