A Hunger From Beyond Walkthrough

  • Fort Joy:

In front of the Gargoyle's Maze, you can find a note on a dead adventurer. Read it to acquire this quest.

Pass The Gargoyle's Maze, and enter the tower. In a cursed chest, you can find The Devourer's Claws. You also learn more clues from the Voice of Flame. 

NOTE: At every point where you experience the fiery vision, you have the option to resist it. For every vision you do NOT resist, your main character will be hit by 1 round of Shackles of Pain during the final encounter of this quest.

Inside Orivand's Chambers, you find another set of glowing books on a table. Interact with it to learn more from Voice of flame. There is an option to obtain the flame essence.

  • Reaper's Coast:

Head to Stonegarden, read Ryker's Visitor Lodge and the quest will update the location of the dead shady digger.

Head to the eternal flame dragons in the graveyard and retrieve the boots from the body of the digger. When you equip those boots, a dwarf spirit will appear (spirit vision). Talking to him leads to another place of longing, inside the Blackpits Cavern.

  •  Nameless Isle:

hunger dragon
The Leggings of this armor set can be found following red arrows to a cave, near the Altar To Zorl-Stissa (around X180, Y685). Offer (PC: drag&drop, Console: hold rune in hand and then open head) a flame rune to the dragon skull inside to speak to Voice of Flame. You can loot one nearby or craft it. The vision will start immediately. After the vision you will find the Leggings in your inventory. Attached to this piece of armor is a fanatic lizard spirit, talk to him and the quest will reveal another place of longing.
The place can be found deep inside the lava fields, at the south-eastern end of the map (follow the quest marker). During the conversation with the voice of flame at the new place, if you guess his nature correctly, he will reward you with a skillbook.

  • Arx:

devourer armor divinity original sin2 wiki guide6
The Helm is in the blue cupboard in Vault of Linder Kemm. You can learn the combination for the lock from a note behind the painting "Portrait of the Outlaw Empress" (X:500 Y:985) hanging on the wall to the left side of the locked door behind the paintings "Passion of Lucian". (The combination is 232113).
You can talk to the new spirit of the armor piece but it is not yet required.

devourer armor divinity original sin2 wiki guide5
(Head to the Toymaker's shop at X: 274, Y: 297. On the table to the left  you will see spirits who will instruct you to go to the Lizard Consulate.)
The body is near the garden of the Lizard Consulate. Either make it all the way to the balcony at X: 180, Y: 408 and teleport, fly, or find the hidden ladder to the beach below, or use the wines from the gardens of the consulate. Inside a sack will be the Devourer's Heart body armor.

With all five pieces gathered, interact with the spirits again. The places of longing for the last two pieces are in the garden of the Consulate and the Toyseller's shop.
The Dreamer Lizard will then transport you to an arena where you must choose to side with the Devourer or the Dreamer. If siding with the Devourer, the Dreamer will die and the Devourer Armor set will be upgraded with the Onslaught Skill; the wearer will also be healed when they kill marked targets in battle.

If you choose to side with the Dreamer, they will chain down the Devourer so that the dragon cannot move or dodge. Multiple enemies and allies will be around the room. Clear out the minions first as quickly as possible. After a round or two, the Dreamer will be knocked out and the Devourer will start attacking. It has a huge range and is healed by poison. Keep your distance and use as many strong focused attacks to eventually take it down.

If you side with the Dreamer you will be able to loot the area for additional items. Plus, your Devourer Armor set will get the previously mentioned upgrades.

 

Tips & Tricks

  • The spirits are tied to their piece of armor.  If you find the spirits constant presence annoying, stashing the set pieces on the Lady Vengeance (AFTER finding the associated place of longing) can reduce visual clutter until reaching Arx and laying them to rest.
  • Set Bonus: The Devourer's strength courses through this armour, boosting its level to 20. The wearer may channel a violent frenzy that feeds off the life force of enemies.
  • Devourer Armour Set stats & description: here
  • IMPORTANT: Any runes added to the armour set will be lost once it has been activated.
  • If the wearer sides with the Devourer, they will be unable to unequip the armour set.
  • Only your main character will talk to the Devourer. You are free to position the rest of the party and the two obvious enemies (fanatics) using Nether Swap or Teleport. Two more enemies will spawn behind the dreamer.
  • DE: Even more effective than setting up the fanatics, is to devour them before entering the dream realm.  The fanatics will never apear and you will never have to fight them.  If you do this through dialogue, the other spirits will protest.  This does not seem to affect rewards.
  • If you equip the entire Devourer armor immediately after getting all 5 pieces, then devour the source of the Dreamer, you get the upgraded armor with no other hassle.

      got a bug in DE where i was able to fight the devourer dragon without ever getting the helmet. Now that ive gotten the helmet, it is stuck at level 19.

      • Anonymous

        It was certainly a difficult fight. The key was positioning.
        Spread your party members once the conversation initiates while leaving tank below.
        Use water damage which goes well.
        Managed to finish it on the last hit

          got a glitch where i start battle, it says a target is marked. if i don't kill them in 3 turns, i'll take damage. no one's marked. bug after bug. ridiculous.

          • Anonymous

            Easiest way to kill him when not playing as undead, respec to hydro and 2 in Summoning - get the Five Star Diner perk. Use Soulmate as soon as the fight starts and then chug all the Giant Potions you can, i only need 3 to kill him in the first turn

              Anyone else get an odd big where the dreamer was mad for no reason (-45 attitude) and had to be gifted items till she was happy again. Had so much money but that time I just gave her like 10000 and got her to 100 attitude and she was willing to talk to me normally afterwards.

              • Anonymous

                Ez way to cheese the fight: If you wanna kill the devourer, use a heavy hitter AOE attack, like hailstorm. You'll be able to strip his magic armor that way. Once stripped just enchant him, I used a hunter with enchanting arrows. The devourer will kill everyone and you can just kill him with no bigger problem. Have in mind that enchant spells on him will only last 1 turn because of his talents.

                  Tip: dont put any runes on devourer's armor before fighting dragon because they will parish after upgrade.

                    It is hilarious that you can complete the armor either by fighting the hardest boss in the game or by draining a spirit.

                      Sir Lora has been following me around in spirit form since he got mysteriously murdered in the Nameless Isle, and is just fine after I defeated the Devourer, but somehow when the spirit of the Dreamer teleports us back to the material plane, Sir Lora disappears and doesn't appear when I use spirit vision... I think he got trapped in the dead dragon realm.

                        You completely skipped over the piece in the Black Pits. Is there a piece there or not? there is no clarification.

                          I lost the Devourer's Claws somewhere in Act 1 (maybe i sold them by mistake or a bug idk). Is there any possible was to recover them beside to load an old save?
                          I am currently in Act 4

                            If you struggle with the fight, considers bringing barrels of deathfog to kill the adds before the fight even begins. You can get some near the place you fight Loic, near the Lady Vengeance.

                              Your answer is.. chicken claw. The best scroll in DOS2. That weird little scroll that you keep hoarding. Nuke his phys armor and chicken claw him to death. Playing on tactician, that bastard have 19k phys armor and 19k health.

                                PS4 Definite Ed. The code 232113 is correct, but it's a bit tricky since the X highlight of the buttons shows wrong order. Switch with R1 to right button and move to see the last one highlight, and it will work. Just did it myself and got the helmet.

                                  I have done each part and am on Nameless Isle now. I fed the Dragon a flame rune and got the leg piece. Now there's a red flag marker to the south in the lava fields. But when I get there I don't see any orange spirited objects, like there was in Black Pits mine. I can cast Spirit Vision and interact with the Fanatic but that's it. After talking to him the quest marker remains there. Every YouTube video I've watched shows those orange objects in the area but I don't see them. Am I missing something? How do I clear the quest objective?

                                    On the wall behind the portraits (first, second, third passion of Lucian) there is a portrait of the Outlaw Empress (left to the door opened by the painting). If you remove this portrait, behind it you find a sheet of paper with the order of the buttons for devourers helm.

                                      I managed to stack Flaming Crescendo (around 10 times then got bored) before the fight even started and without them triggering. I started the fight and as soon as the turn of the Devourer came, he got OHKO'ed (i'm lvl 19)

                                        THE CODE THEY GIVE FOR THE HELMET IS WRONG. Through trial and error I have figured out that the real code is random and you just have to keep pressing the buttons that don’t petrify you. Eg. 1, 2, 3 petrified. Restart. 1, 2, 1, 2 petrified. Restart. You will have more luck with this.

                                          I discovered a glitch with the leggings. If you equip them and then remove all points of warfare on that character with the mirror, you will get one extra talent point. You can repeatedly add and remove warfare for infinite talent points.

                                                  "Head to the Toymaker's shop at X: 274, Y: 297 and inspect the statues on the table to the left."

                                                  What is this referring to? I don't see anything like this in the toymaker's shop.

                                                  • In case you're as confused as I am about what happens with the devourer's armor in terms of it leveling or how the set bonus works, it only leveled to 20 for me after I defeated the Devourer and after I told the Dreamer I wished to leave the dreamscape (in DE version). However, after doing that, I noticed after my equipped level 18 breastplate "The Devourer's heart" which had 3 equipped runes on it, disappeared all the runes after it was upgraded. Let that be a warning to anyone who is currently used it on a STR character that you can and should remove the runes before you talk to the Dreamer and level the dreamscape area. Also I resisted and successfully passed the check on all of the visions but was still hit with 3 shackles of pain on my character. Not sure what I missed in that regard.

This is really good but there is an issue. The cool down reset is actually better than skin graft since it affects abilities that can only be used once per battle like Apotheosis and Fane's timewarp. Which means this is completely busted as you can have infinite source and turns (with Fane) provided you can keep killing your targets quickly. You can also drink the AP reduction tea to make Apotheosis 1AP!

For the number of times you accept the vision, you will receive the same number of shackle of pain's turns if you choose to fight the Devourer at the end.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                Okay, so I have looked this guide over about a dozen times and it only tells you where to find 4 of the 5 pieces and you have to read it with a fning magnifying glass to pick out where the pieces are mentioned. Ever hear of bullet points?

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  If you get stuck here, disable the Organized Containers mod (or similar mods) if you have them installed. It screws with how the game recognizes flame runes.
                                                                                  I suggest pressing the "empty bags" book, saving, disabling the mod, doing this quest, saving, enabling the mod, getting your bags back, then pressing the "auto-bag" book.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      I equipped the armor with runes and went into the last fight. After I left, the armor upgraded, but all the runes are just gone. Super annoying.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        In the final fight with the Devourer, engage him in conversation with 1 companion then control the rest and place them on high ground. Teleport the companion in conversation out of line of sight and the conversation will break but the Devourer won't aggro yet. You can then hit him a few times before the battle starts and when it does there were fewer enemy npcs for me. He also was not chained but still acted as if he was for the first 3 turns, only casting his bone prison spell (which can be destroyed btw)

                                                                                          • Anonymous

Once inside you need to deal with the patrols one way or another then head left and go through a hidden door. Once inside, there will be a cabinet with 3 buttons. The order is 2 3 2 1 1 3. It will appear inside the cabinet.
