Key points of Pillars of Eternity M40 - Galawain's Maw

Important areas on the map

Exits from locations

Locked doors or chests

Traps

Important NPC's (quest givers, traders etc.)

New potential team members

Dangerous enemies (bosses, elite monsters etc.)

Galawain's Maw is a medium-sized underground location, which you can enter while in Oldsong . You visit this location, nearly solely to complete The Old Queen and the New King quest that you receive from god Galawain in Teir Evron. You encounter here both friendly and initially hostile NPCs here. Apart from that, you will have to alleviate the conflict between powerful beasts, by killing one or two creatures.

Important places in Galawain's Maw

2. Destroyed bridge

It is only possible to cross the bridge using the grappling hook. Thanks to this, you skip the journey across the Northern part of the location (M40,3) and some of the fights with lions and members of the Lion's clan.

3. The Fangs' Heart - Northern passage

Meet Desthwn here, who gives you the key to Galawain's Maw (use it on the nearby door).

4. Southern passage

By default, the passage is inaccessible. You can open it later on, e.g. along your way back to the surface - you need to locate the switch Eastwards of the door.

Side quest: Prison of Ice - Talk to Larha.

Larha sells camping supplies, various weapons and tools.

5. Vines

This is another, next to the destroyed bridge, possible shortcut. It allows you to reach Galawain's shrine faster (M40,6) and to avoid several fights. After you interact with the vine, pick the option to squeeze through.

6. Galawain's shrine

You encounter Irensi and lioness Sul here, i.e. one of the two creatures for Galawain's quest. You can attack Irensi and Sul, use Persuasion to convince the woman to change her stance, or kill Oernos the Bear, which appears in the Northern part of the Maw (M40,7).

7. Oernos the Bear

Einden and Oernos the Bear appear right after you leave Galawain's Maw, after the meeting with Irensi (M40,6). Just like in the case of the lioness, you can attack Einden and Oernos, use Persuasion to convince the man to change his stance, or eliminate lioness Sul (M40,6).

Quests that you can obtain in Galawain's Maw

Side quest: Prison of Ice - Talk to Larha (M40,4).

Important NPCs in Galawain's Maw

Desthwn (M40,3) - You receive a key from him.

Larha (M40,4) - You can receive side quests from her and trade with her, she sells camping supplies, weapons, armors and tools.

Irensi (M40,6) - She guards lioness Sul.

Einden (M40,7) - He protects Oernos the Bear. Note - At first, he is standing close to the entrance to the Maw (M40,1), but you can only have a short conversation with him, then.

Types of opponents and monsters in Galawain's Maw

Lion

Lioness

Lion Clansman

Other important information, in connection with Galawain's Maw

You cannot feel entirely safe, while at the Galawain's Maw. After you leave the initial chambers, and along your path to Irensi, you will have to eliminate both various types of lions, as well as Lion Clansmen. Therefore, it is best to reach your destination as quickly as possible, because your meeting with Irensi changes the disposition of all the creatures around, towards your party. The exception, of course, is the situation, in which you attack Irensi and lioness Sul straight away, without meeting with Einden to learn the possible alternative solutions to Galawain's quest.

Lioness Sul and Oernos the Bear are very tough beasts. They deal lots of damage. Before you decide to eliminate, at least, either of them (you can also kill both) have the party rest. Keep in mind that you will also have to eliminate all of the accompanying creatures, unless you managed to change their disposition, with Persuasion.

In Galawain's Maw, there are lots of traps, especially in the Eastern corridors. You should not ignore them, because many of them deal significant damage. Unfortunately, if there is nobody with high Mechanics in your party, you will have to walk around many of them (you should especially watch your step in narrow corridors and cross them with one character, at a time).
