This page contains our walkthrough for Nemnok the Devourer quest available in Pillars of Eternity 2 Deadfire. You can get this mission from Tatok in Junvik village - your goal is to find a boy named Kaali.
Starting the quest
Tatok is in Junvik village located in the place marked on the map above - area near Ori o Koiki (M38). After entering the village, you can witness an argument between Tatok and the village leader. Speak with Tatok - you learn that Kaali has been offered to a mysterious god. Your goal is to find the boy - he is in the Drowned Barrows, north from the village.
Exploration of the Drowned Barrows
Upon entering the Barrows, you have to participate in a scripted interaction during which you can decide how you want to enter this location. The path through the mouth leads to the main part of the Drowned Barrows. The eyes lead to Drowned Barrows Crown (you will have to go down to the main part of the location). Go through the eyes if you want to explore this location. If not, choose the mouth. Drowned Barrows Crown has no unique items or something that can change the way this quest goes. However, the equipment carried by the enemies here is valuable.
There are a lot of enemies in Drowned Barrows. Keep moving straight to reach the next part of the location. You will reach the place presented in the picture above - the room has a few traps; the passage can be opened with the button on the left. You can also decide to explore the rest of the room - chests, barrels and enemies contain valuable items (equipment or precious stones).
Meeting with Nemnok
The stairs lead to the Sanctum - this is where you will find Kaali. Approach him to initiate a conversation. It doesn't matter which dialog lines you chose - Nemnok the Devourer will always get summoned. You now have to decide what you want to do with him:
- Attack - Nemnok the Devourer is a powerful foe. Your party's level should be 18 or higher (they also need to be well-equipped). Kill Nemnok's minions fast (you will also need to kill Kaali). Once they are dead, focus your entire party on Nemnok. After that Nemnok the Petite will appear - you can chase him out, kill or ask to travel together. The last option makes Nemnok the Petite as your pet - he grants +1 to maximum Empower Points, and your party receives one level 1 additional spell cast for a Druid, a Priest and a Wizard.
- Use the Diplomacy 8 dialog line - here, Kaali goes back to his home. You can then decide to either kill Nemnok or receive a quest called The Lost Grimoires during which you have to collect three grimoires hidden somewhere in the game's world.
After killing Nemnok don't forget to search the chests under the statue - inside you can find three legendary items - Chromoprismatic Quarterstaff, Veilpiercer bow and Mundane Shell shield.
The quest's ending
Go back to Junvik village. The reward received from Tatok depends on your choices in the Drowned Barrows:
- Kaali is dead - you receive 500 gold.
- Kaali is alive - you receive Hearth Defender's Scale armor and 500 gold.
