Delusions of Grandeur Objectives

  1. Kill the chained Godwoken



Delusions of Grandeur Walkthrough

 In one of the vaults on Bloodmoon Island, you find a note on a bookshelf. It's a detailed case of possession.

 (Entrance of the hatch)

To open the statue, you need to let one character with Scholar tag to decipher Ornate Hymnal, it turns to The Taming of Holy Fire. This book can be found at multiple locations, including the archive on the northeast of the island, and a Black Ring member near the tree.)

Go to the Ancient Forge on the north of the island, forge a silver lever shaft with a silver bar.

Use the crafted lever shaft on the slot inside the vault, then cast Spirit Vision and ask the guardian to open the door. You must pass a persuasion check to get him to let you pass, otherwise you can consume his source to get through. 

If you persuade the guardian to unseal the door, the Godwoken will be chained up and you can speak to her.  She will tempt you with power.  Accepting her offer will result in all your source points being drained and her attacking. If you refuse you will have to pass a speech check or you will be drained regardless.  Whether you pass her speech check or if you decide not to talk to her at all, you can kill her while she is still chained without her fighting back, or by breaking the chains and she will attack.  The quest will close immediately after killing her; if you talk to the guardian he will state that his watch has ended then disappear. 

If you consume the guardian's source, Rajjarima will already be unchained when you open the door.  Defeat her to close the quest.


Both options result in the same EXP gain (57,775 EXP, tested at level 15 and 16) and 7,775 EXP for killing her (at level 15). 

Quest rewards: a Large Rune, an Epic equipment, and a small amount of gold, plus a single choice between four Epic equipment. 



The killing blow on Rajjarima must be dealt by the Godwoken character you used to convince the ghost guardian, otherwise the quest item rewards won't appear.
If the killing blow is dealt by another party member, you will still get EXP but no item quest rewards. 


Tips & Tricks

  • The spirit gives the reward and closes the quest if you don't source drain him. (Tell him you won't speak to the demon to open door).  This might be fixed in DE, quest will close when the possessed Godwoken dies. 
  • If you speak with the Chained Godwoken Rajjarima, you can resist her speech check with minimum 4 Persuasion with either Strength or Constitution, or minimum 5 Persuasion with either Intelligence or Wits. 
  • She will most likely one-shot the closest character at the start of the fight  -- Over 2.5k dmg --  (spread out).

        Tried with every method including the ones from comment, only got exp and basic loots from corpse. Big oof

          Weird stuff happened. Trying to do the quick save and reload doesn't work.
          10 min later, when I'm fighting near the Black Ring gang, the reward screen just appears out of nowhere.
          Thanks, I guess?

            Item reward bug fix: after doing the killing blow, quick save & reload that same save.
            you can now get your item rewards

              DE: 36100 for killing her
              21675 complete the mission
              I went to the spirit after that and it just disappeared, it didn't give me any reward

                Same goes for me, I didn't receive any loots, regardless of which character I used :/ Tried a few times too

                • Anonymous

                  I killed her, multiple times, with both the character that passed the persuasion check, the one that didn't, tried quitting, reloading, jumping three times on my left feet. No rewards, only the EXP and some crappy loot from the body.

                    DE on PC: Spoke with her, passed persuation check. Went down and just killed her while in chains.

                    Both rewards (choice + rune + arrow + gold) + Legendary necklace from the body granted.

                    Also tried setting her free and killing her then... that results in the 1st reward not being granted but the quest completed anyways.

                    Recommend just killing her with the character that passed HER persuation check (not the ghost's)

                    • Spoke with her, passed persuasion check, killed her while she was in chains (if you examine her stats you'll see she is insanely powerful, 700-800 dmg). Got a ton of XP but no rewards. Spoke with Robert and afterward he just disappeared. DE on Mac

                        You must have at least one full (replenished) source point when speaking with the demon in order to follow the ‘power’ thread of the conversation to the conclusion. Otherwise, she will simply state you do not have any source and the conversation will end.

                        After that, stepping in to one of the two nearby source puddles will auto start the conversation again and force you to either give in to her charm or resist via the persuasion check.

                          DE newest version:
                          No matter what I did, kill her in chains, destroy the chains afterwards, spoken to Robert with the Godwoken who did (not) kill the daemon; no item reward, no exp reward (only for killing her)

                            DE on PC. The quest log just closed the moment Rajjarima dropped dead, and no reward from Brother Robert. All these options leads to the same result:
                            1. Don't speak to Rajjarima & kill her with the character who persuaded Brother Robert.
                            2. Don't speak to Rajjarima & kill her the other character who didn't speak to Brother Robert.
                            3. Speak to Rajjarima & pass speech check, then kill her with the character who persuaded Brother Robert.
                            4. Speak to Rajjarima & pass speech check, then kill her with the other character who didn't speak to Brother Robert.
                            5. Agree to free Rajjarima then kill her with the character who persuaded Brother Robert.
                            6. Agree to free Rajjarima then kill her with the other character who didn't speak to Brother Robert.

                            All 6 options lead to the same amount of EXP and no item reward at all.

                              "The killing blow on Rajjarima must be dealt by the Godwoken character you used to convince the ghost guardian, otherwise the quest item rewards won't appear.
                              If the killing blow is dealt by another party member, you will still get EXP but no item quest rewards."

                              This was the complete opposite for me, after I killed her with the character that persuaded the ghost, I didn't get a Quest Reward Screen, EXP only. HOWEVER, when I killed her with a character that DIDN'T persuade the ghost, I got the EXP and the Quest Reward as well.

                                I think that needs to not be a persuasion check. In what way is resisting hypnosis a persuasion issue? I'd call that a constitution / intelligence / wits issue, not a persuasion issue. I agree with that other guy down there. I'm sick of being gated off from quests because of BS like that.

                                  Idk what I did right, but I could go into the pit with Phoenix dive and kill her without her ever trying to talk to me. Got the rewards and everything. Very strange

                                  • I didn't receive any loot on DE. Brother robert just vanish when talking to him once she's dead. Tried with any persuasion check so she doesn't suck my source power, tried to kill her when she's still chained, tried to let her suck my power. Nothing worked.

                                          After update 1.09 there is a bug where after fixing the silver shaft into level would consume both silver shaft in your inventory. Drop one of your silver shaft before fixing the lever or you would lose both...

                                            Just for the record. No need to fight her >>at all<<. Just press STRG / CTRL to go into attack mode and whack away at her while she is still bound (I shot at her from the highground with a crossbow). Fight won't happen and you get normal experience (about 57k, I was at lvl 14). Quest progresses normally as well. Tried this with multiple saves (where I just "executed her" as described and where I fought her normally. Same results in terms of quest and EXP). Should work flawlessly.

                                                I killed her after resisting her with the con persuasion check. I summoned a bone widow took control of it and hit till she died. Then teleported her corpse to loot it.

                                                • You still get the same amount of experience by just killing it without even triggering the conversation. Kill it from the high ground then go down and loot the body. The quest will close when you go and talk to the spirit.

                                                      So I've tried this both ways (like many things in my life) and all you have to do is keep firing on her from a distance with an archer before you engage in converstaion. Same xp, same loot, don't have to go hunting source , quest closes all nice and pretty. Heed the gatekeepers advice. Don't let er speak

                                                        Not sure if the quest has been updated, but I had a completely different experience. I had translated the book, before I knew what it was, so going down wasn't a problem.

                                                        Here's my experience.

                                                        1. Cast Spirit Vision. Go up and talk to the spirit. He doesn't help you much.
                                                        2. Go up to the door, click on the locking mechanism. It takes a silver bar forged into a silver handle or something. The forge is found on the island.
                                                        3. Go back and talk to the spirit. He says that he is the key to unlocking the door, and nothing else. I believe you've gotta pass a persuasion check to get through. Luckily, I went up to him and talked to him with my tank, and Strength was one of the persuasion options.

                                                            I was able to kill the demon with my Conjured Incarnate without ever entering combat. I did this while she was still chained, after successfully thwarting her talking challenge with 22 Constitution and 4 Persuasion.

                                                            • Polymorphskill Chicken Claw made this fight fairly trivial, as the demon cant possess anyone for the duration of it. Chicken claw + rupture tendons made the fight somewhat comical.

                                                              1. Make sure you try to fix the lever with the character that has it in its bags, or you wont get in.
                                                              2. Destroy pillars and delete the dwarf, cast living on the edge to make sure he doesnt die, and make sure you heal the dwarf after the demon is out.
                                                              3. Get rid of the physical armor, cast chicken claw and rupture tendons.
                                                              4. Watch as the demon runs away and kills it self, while rejoicing from the pain (!).
