Kahanga Palace | Neketaka Island Walkthrough
Pillars Of Eternity 2 Guide and Walkthrough
The map above depicts Kahanga Palace. This is one of the bigger buildings that can be explored during your stay in Neketaka. The entrance to the building is located in the Serpent's Crown district. This is a very important location story-wise because this is the place where you can meet with the queen of Huana. There, you can unlock a few new quests, recruit two companions, meet with a skill specialist or collect loot.
Important places in Kahanga Palace
1. Throne room. An audience with Queen Onekaza II is a part of The Veins of Eora main quest. You will receive a new main quest Distant Light and also a side quest called The Brass Empire. After the audience the queen will go on the roof of the palace (M25,8).
During the audience you can recruit Maia and Pallegina as new party members. You can also talk to them later after the audience with the queen (note - Pallegina's presence in the palace depends on your decisions in the first Pillars of Eternity game).
Prince Aruihi can give you Trade Secrets quest. You will also receive the Envoy's Badge from him to complete the aforementioned quest.
2. Hall of Remembrance. You can talk to Granis Yirgar about his armor. He's also a skills trainer - in exchange for 3,000 gold you can raise the main character's Survival and Athletics skills by 1 point.
6. Large hall. Barati can give you Bounty type quests.

Other information related to Palace Kahanga
Try to not delay your visit in the palace. Completing the main quest rewards you with a lot of XP. You can also recruit two new party members which give you more options when it comes to choosing your "active" party. Also, don't miss your chance to meet with a skills trainer. Increasing Athletics can be especially useful, e.g. for completing certain scripted interactions.
There are two pairs of stairs on the palace's rooftop. They lead to a large terrace where you can, e.g. find a pet and meet another skills trainer. The rest of the attractions that await your party there are described on the map of Serpent's Crown (M16) (the game loads up this map when you enter the terrace).
