The White Forge - main quest Pillars of Eternity Guide

The quest begins automatically upon entering the Great Hall, which in turn is associated with completion of the Durgan's Battery quest. Your first objective is to get to the lower floor of the stronghold. The only place in which you might have some problems are the closed doors (M9,4). In order to open them, you must do one of the following:

  • The easiest solution is to simply select whatever option you desire and force a fight. The enemies are quite demanding, but at your level you should be able to deal with them without a problem. Afterwards, the door will be opened.
  • You can also tell that the Leaden Key Brotherhood is searching for something in the blacksmith. Afterwards, mention Zoltan and you will be admitted to enter.
  • By having Resolve on at least 12th level, you will be able to say that Exandru has invited you. Afterwards, say that you are going to pray to the Abydon. The door will be opened.
  • If you tell that you want to learn the secrets of the White Forge, or that you are only looking around, or that you want to acquire a weapon, you will be immediately attacked.

Each one of the above options will allow you to open the door and get to the lower floor. As soon as you do so, your journal will be updated and you will have to get to the lower floor yet again. It won't, however, be that simple.

There's a number of difficult encounters awaiting you in the mines, including one with a group of Ice Trolls.

First things first, you have to acquire the key to the workshop (M10,1). It can be found on the body of a dwarf (M10,6). As soon as you collect it, a group of enemies will appear. You have to defeat them. During your journey to the workshop, a group of enemies, with a Battery Siren, will appear. A Battery Siren is a powerful enemy, so you should prepare for the encounter accordingly. Use the key you've just collected and open the door to the workshop. Inside, you will have to fight with a group of enormously powerful Ice Trolls. This time you should place your characters appropriately, by sending your warriors to the front line and keeping your long-ranged characters in the back - don't forget about using potions if the situation requires it. Additionally, you can lay a few traps, if you happen to have them at your disposal. During the encounter, use the active pause as much as possible. As soon as you defeat the trolls, pick up the loot they dropped and collect the seal from the table. Now you must approach the doors that block the access to the stairs. During your journey you will encounter another group of enemies, with a Battery Siren. Place the seal in the opening on the left side of the door. Now you must do the following:

  • Turn the seal two times, counter-clockwise and then press the seal.
  • Turn the seal once, clockwise, and press it again.
  • Turn the seal two times, counter-clockwise and then press the seal.
  • Turn the seal three times, clockwise and press it again. The doors will be opened.

After getting to the lower floor, the quest will be updated, and you will have to look for the White Forge itself now. Even here, on the lowest floor, you will have to complete a series of activities in order to advance. First things first, look for the elements needed to activate the forge. The first n, Adra Disc, can be found in the room in the middle of the map (M11,4). Approach the sphere and press The Old Vail, then the Living Earth, and at the end the Ruatai. You will be given the disc. Now you have to acquire two adra spheres. The first one can be found in the room in the Northern section of the location (M11,6). The second can be acquired from the chest in the warehouse (M11,1).

You will awaken all the nearby enemies and you will have to fight a group of 6 to 7 foes. The encounter is quite difficult and you should prepare for it accordingly. Place your mages and ranged classes far away from the forge, and your warriors on both sides of it. It's worth to place a few traps and prepare potions which add fire resistance.

After the battle approach a large adra obelisk and click on it. From the conversation you will learn a lot about the history and the destiny of this place.
