The Seeds of Deception is a Quest of the DLCThe Forgotten Sanctum in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. Llengrath requested the watcher search for an ancient arcane artifact of Engwith.


Important NPCs



  1. Access the body of Wael
  2. Enter Wael's body
  3. Search Wael's body for the artifact
  4. Search the Heart of Mystery.



  • In order to enter Wael's body, you need to use the key you get at The Assembly of Echoes to interact with the machine in the middle of The Scriptorium. You also need to sacrifice a piece of memory to use this machine to reveal the stairs to lower level.
  • Enter The Upper Bowels, you can find one Outer Godseed Fragment at Archives Subbasement.
  • Another Outer Godseed Fragment can be found at Memory Siphon, be careful when you fight enemies there, don't step on runes otherwise you may be killed by hazards.
  • Descend into the Heart of Mystery. After defeating the Oracle of Wael, you can decide to give the schema back to it (and receive a Ring of Clenched Muscle) or not. *(you can loot the ring if you simply kills it)
  • The last piece of the artifact is on the opposite side of the Oracle. Find it and return to Tayn.





  • The Seeds of Deception
    • Llengrath requested I search for an ancient arcane artifact of Engwith while I explore the body of Wael.
    • (Alternate) 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.
  • Access the body of Wael
    • 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.
  • Enter Wael's body
    • I've gained access to the massive entity below. I can now descend into the fleshy depths.
  • Search Wael's body for the artifact
    • Now that I've entered Wael's body, I can search it for the artifact. I shouldn't think about that too hard.
    • I located what appears to be part of an arcane artifact.
    • I located a second piece of the artifact.
  • Search the Heart of Mystery
    • I've found two pieces of the artifact, but the core still seems to be missing. I might find it deeper within the body.
  • Return the godseed
    • I've located the complete artifact. Now I should return it to the archmage.


End States

  • I turned the godseed over to Tayn.
  • I granted the godseed to Llengrath.
  • I returned the schema to the Oracle of Wael.
  • I kept the pieces of the godseed for myself.
  • 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.
