#5: Fragments of a Scattered Faith
You will have this quest after adding Edér to party. Possibly after resting and talking to dwarf lady hanging in the tree in Gilded Vale.
New Objective: Bring Edér to speak with Maerwald.
Edér wish to speak with Maerwald upon realizing that Maerwald has totally lost his marbles. To help Maerwald to get the information about his brother’s death in the Saint’s War.
Reputation with Defiance Bay is the simplest way to retrieve the records.
Once access is given to the records, Edér is able to find the battlefield where his brother fell and record confirms he was fighting for Readceras, which comes as a blow to Edér and ratchets his anxiety about whether he fought on the right side.
Next, he wants to travel to the site where he died in shadow of Cliaban Rilag.
There’s an artifact from the battle at Cliaban Rilag that Edér recognizes as his brother’s. However, getting to it requires crossing the campsite of some would-be looters, who are hoping to wait out the Glanfathans standing watch. They make some anti-Eothasian slur and it ends in a fight.
Afterward, Edér expresses concern over the people with whom he shares a country. With the looters cleared out, an artifact is recovered. Now you need a cipher to read artifact. Kurren can do this. OR Grieving Mother can do it and in Act III. A Mind Hunter in Twin Elms can also read it.
This gives the answer; his brother traveled into Readceras and met St. Waidwen, and thereafter enlisted in their ranks. But the “why” of it is lost. His quest is complete here.
#6: The Trials of Durance
Durance joins to your party as you pass through Magran’s Fork. This side quest becomes available after he joins your party.
New Objective: Spend Time Traveling with Durance
Durance keeps secrets that unravel the more you talk to him. If you have Durance in party in Acts II and III, you will have visions of Durance that lead to further insight into his secrets after a certain number of rests.
You must ask him about more or less everything to be equipped for the last part of his quest, which unlocks after speaking to the gods and learning of Woedica’s plot.
Using knowledge gleaned from his dialogue, you must try to convince Durance that Magran conspired with Woedica, and that she no longer speaks to Durance not because he did something to offend her, but because she wanted to cover up what she had done.
If the quest is completed, he goes on to swear revenge against Woedica. If not, he lights himself on fire and dies.
