The map above represents Harbinger's Retreat available in Pillars of Eternity 2 Deadfire - Beast of Winter. Here, you can find the main Harbinger, Vatnir. Visiting this place is mandatory if you want to make progress in the expansion's plot.

Important places in Harbinger's Retreat

1. Tip of the Iceberg. This is where you start exploring this location. Harbinger Valbrendhur will speak to you during your first visit there. He can rent you a room (the basic one is for free) and sell supplies. Besides that, he also gives you Harbinger's Robe and Harbinger's Hood. In the upper right corner of the location you can find a hidden stash with a Permafrost shard (you need a character with high Perception to detect this stash). Next to it you can also find a chest with lager and oil.

2. Vatnir's Room. Inside the containers you can find a Potion of Major Healing, Adra eniach and Spices. A skull is on the right - after clicking on it you can examine it closer or put your fingers inside of it. Both options unlock access to the Secret Chamber (4) - this is where you will be able to find Vatnir at the end of An Honored Guest quest.

Also, two Immolator bombs can be found near the entrance to the secret room.

3. Sanctuary. Entering that place triggers a conversation with Vatnir. The dialog gets interrupted by noise coming from the outside - everyone in the Sanctuary will leave. This adds a new objective to An Honored Guest quest.

4. Secret Chamber. Inside it you can find potions and a Stone idol. This is where you will find Vatnir once you deal with The Messenger during An Honored Guest quest. You can add him to your party. Besides that, you can also receive Vatnir's icepicks that will help you reach Outcrop on High (M4). You can also kill Vatnir. However, you can get attacked by the entire village and lose access to numerous quests if you fail to convince Harbinger Hafjorn that you didn't kill Vatnir.
