The Cursed Ring is a Personal Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II



Important NPCs

  • Trompdoy
  • Statue of Illusions 


  1. Search the ruin and defeat the mad illusionist Trompdoy
  2. Take the ring from (one of)Trompdoy's body. 



  • On the southeast side of the island (near three voidwoken salamanders) there is an illusionary cave, go inside it, and there is a strange ruin.


  • The main entrance to that ruin is blocked, but if you take a look at your mini-map, you can find an illusionary bridge which leads you to another side of the ruin (to the left of Trompdoy).
  • Trompdoy will keep trying to stop you, so prepare to fight.  He ambushes you and will attack you with three to four duplicates.




  • You will meet a Statue of Illusions inside and he will ask you a few questions


  • Answer for first question is option 1:  'very awful, rotten'; the answer to the second question is option 2: 'a hex, a misery, a blight, a curse' .
  • Defeat Trompdoy and acquire the Cursed Ring from his corpse, beware you cannot remove the curse unless you have skill Bless, or go to the tower within Gargoyle's Maze.


  • Trompdoy will ask for your forgiveness and ask you to free his soul. You can either break his soul jar (illusionist's soul jar), or use it to empower yourself.
  • There is another statue near the treasure room, interact with it will teleport your main character to The Hall of Echoes. You will gain one source skill there.
  • Use the lever to disable blocking field and leave. 


Tips & Tricks

  • The curse CANNOT be removed from the ring itself.  You can bless your character after putting it on to remove the cursed ring from your character, but it is NOT possible to permanently remove the curse from the ring.
  • This ring is NOT part of the Tyrant's armor set in any way, and it's curse is not related at all to that cursed armor.
  • Many of the boxes are trapped with elemental damage.
  • Showing this ring to the gargoyle at the beginning of the maze outside Braccus' tower will get you teleported to the end of the maze, right at the tower entrance.
  • Take all of the artwork from the wall in the room with the Statue of Illusions; they are worth about 30-50 gold each.
  • You will receive many soul jars in the treasure room.  You can choose to smash them right there or save them for later. However, these are the souls of the 3 necromacers in the Tower of Braccus. If the jar are not destroyed, the necromancer will keep resurrecting after they're killed.

      On that room where you kill trompdoy and get the ring of braccus from his body, you can pass in stealth instead and avoid conflict. Then after you break the jar, go back do that room and the Trompdoy's body will be there with the ring.

          A lot of people keep asking "how do you remove the curse from the ring?", and are getting responses that answer "how do I remove the curse applied to my character, by the ring".

          What I, and I'm betting most of the other people want to know is, can you remove the curse THAT IS ON THE RING ITSELF. I'm well aware of how to remove the curse status on my character. I'd like to know if the ring itself can be altered so that it will no longer curse me if I put it on.

            A tip to defeat Trompdoy easily: just kill the cursed Trompdoy (hover your cursor above the ennemy to see which one is cursed), others are illusions and will die immediately.

              encountered a bug where I turned Trompdoy into a chicken and killed him, but there was no corpse just a pool of blood.

                After you obtain the ring put it on character, than remove it. You will be cursed whatever you wear the ring or not. Journal will be updated that you should find a new host for the ring. I have searched the new host in Fort Joy and Reaper's coast, but never find him.

                You can bless your character while he wearing the ring, it will be automatically unequipped, curse lifted and quest closed.
