  2. Agree to kill The Advocate.
  3. Kill the Advocate and report back to Jahan.



A Hunter of Wicked Things Walkthrough

At a house slightly east of Cloisterwood, there is a Demon Hunter named Jahan (he is the same Jahan from the original Divinity: Original Sin). Approach him for 14,975 Exploration XP.

Jahan will ask you to investigate Bloodmoon Island and kill a powerful demon there named "The Advocate". If you have Lohse on your team, you can agree to let her talk to him for +10 Attitude and he will agree to help Lohse in return for killing the demon. Either way, the quest will progress and you will earn 7500XP.

It is highly recommended to do all three quests: "The Secrets of Bloodmoon Island", "The Advocate", and "The Forgotten and the Damned" in conjunction with this one, as they all revolve around the same path. Rewards will be listed on their respective pages.

There is also a book called "Ornate Hymnal" inside Jahan's home, which is required for the "The Forgotten and the Damned" quest. Reading it as a Scholar will net you 14,450XP, if you have not already read it.

Travel to Bloodmoon island through Cloisterwood harbor or by casting Spirit Vision at the broken bridge next to Driftwood Fields Waypoint. You can teleport over safely using the spirit bridges that appear. In any case, when you arrive on Bloodmoon Island, speak to The Advocate at the demon's camp, and by all means agree to do his personal quest since it nets a lot of XP and advances your main quest anyway. You can also kill The Advocate right then and there, but it is not recommended, since you can kill him after doing his quest anyway.

After dealing with the Black Ring magisters surrounding the tree, you can kill The Advocate. Arp-kha, Chtylchia, Basatan, and a dog will aid him in the fight (the other dog will be on the beach still - you can kill him as well for 7225XP), so be sure to pickpocket Basatan as much as possible before attacking The Advocate. Killing The Advocate gives a measly 7225XP, but he drops pretty nice loot. You will also earn 7225XP for killing the dog, and 28900XP each for killing Basatan the Wishmaster, Chtylchia the Mistress of Agony, Eyrhen of Havoc, and Arp-kha the Elemental Knight. Once they are all dead, don't forget to loot the "Voidwoken Fish Exchange Scroll" on Basatan, as you will need it later on in Act IV for the quest, "Doctor's Orders" in Arx. You can also clear out the area of any remaining enemies for maximum XP and loot at this point.

After you killed the Advocate, since you will need to learn the name of the Arch-Demon anyway later on when you report back to Jahan, you can now simply cast Spirit Vision and talk to the Spirit of the Ancestor Tree to learn the name of the Arch-demon Jahan is after. In order to speak with the tree though, you will need to learn the name of the tree, which can be found by reading the book called "Archivist's Journal" in the Archives located in the picture below (this Archive is actually associated with the quest: "The Secrets of Bloodmoon Island"). Invoke the Tree's name and you will earn 66200XP, as well as learn the name of the Arch-demon, which is Adramahlihk, residing in Doctor Daeva himself.

The above picture shows the entrance to the Archives. You will need enough wits to spot the mound and dig it up. Entering it will net you 50,575XP.

Report to Jahan that the Advocate has died and you will earn 36100XP, and as the dialogue progresses you will earn another 36100XP for a total of 72,200XP. At this point, if you followed the walkthrough and used Spirit Vision to speak with the Spirit of the Tree to learn the name of the demon, you can simply reveal the name to Jahan when he asks another request of you. If not, you'll have to trudge back to Bloodmoon Island again. In any case, after you reveal the name of the demon to Jahan, you will officially complete the quest and obtain a choice of Legendary-quality loot.

If Lohse is with you, Jahan will then try to cure her as promised but ultimately fail. However, he will agree to join you on the Lady Vengeance and face the demon later.

      If you think the quest is bugged, use Peace of Mind in any of your heroes while near the quest location, he'll spot the right place to dig

        After killing the advocate, Javan rewarded each of my characters a skill book of summon inner demon but you must speak to jahan at end of quest with each character, accept quest then turn in quest in same conversation.

          I did all the quests on Bloodmoon Island, but upon returning to Jahan to complete them, he tells me he'll teach me about source, the conversation goes as intended... only I don't actually learn anything from him. My source pool didn't go up to 3 as it should, nor did I learn Source Vampirism.

            I did everything on that bloody island and came back to Jahan - cannot finish the quest with Lohse, he brabbles and everything is pointing to that cage but then the conversation is off. I know the tree name, I did everything - no quest update. Dang it.

              I got all of Basatan's and the Advocate's vendor loot (or most of it) including over 50k gold in total, 7 pouches of superior pixie dust, loot I had sold them, etc.

                    I tried to hand in the quest but I don't get the completion for the quest nor do I get the option for him to join my ship, am I doing something wrong? Or is this a common issue?

                      I have the same exact issue. The lizard in the cage is dead, and when I talk to Jahan in order to perform the ritual, the dialogue just stops.
                      Any ideas on how to deal with this issue?

                        The demon in the cage accidentally died when I fought Alice Alieeson next to Jahan. The quest is now bugged and can't complete...

                          One way to kill advocates group on tactician without too much cheesing is to lure the enemy ambush pack to the nw of the camp and let them fight it and attack as they are busy.

                            If you can't see the secret hatch where the "archives" marker is, you need a higher Wits level to see it. Try using a clear mind scroll or spell. I had 18 (too low) + 8 from clear minded and it appeared for me.

                              Use teleport. From the main broken bridge. Teleport spell one character and then use the teleporter pyramid to group. (It's a hassle but I used it)

                              If you have an undead character send him on the boat alone and teleport pyramid to him.

                                    Hmm for me he says to find out the name of an arch demon he has been trying to kill. However i have only met him after i had already killed the Advocate, there is no mention of this here so i assume i cannot get this information anymore because the advocate is already dead? Anyways if that should be the case perhaps it would be wise to include in this article that one has to aquire this quest before killing the advocate. Thanks
