The Separatist's Test is one of the main quests that are unlocked at the beginning of the fourth chapter in Elex. This quest is part of the preparations for the attack on the Ice Palace and during it you must try to convince the Separatists to join the fight.
How to unlock this quest: Speak with Thorald in Abandoned Cliffs.
Receive the quest from Thorald and meet with the Separatists in the Converter in South Abessa. The meeting with Sestak can end in two different ways:
- You convinced the Separatists by saying that you have a common goal – This can happen if you say that you want to stop The Hybrid. Thanks to that the Alb–Separatists can join you in the final battle that will take place near the Ice Palace during The Battle of Xacor quest (3500XP). Having their support makes that fight easier to win.
- You lost their support after presenting your plan – This can happen if you tell that you want to reason with The Hybrid or that you want to allow him to rule. This results in a battle with the Separatists (1400XP). Start with killing Sestak because he is the strongest and most dangerous enemy (175XP). After that you can deal with the rest of the Separatists that are in the Converter (100XP for each dead Separatist). Choosing this variant means that the Separatists won't appear during The Battle of Xacor quest which makes that fight more difficult to win.
