End Times Walkthrough

This entire chapter is the final battle you must face. Prepare yourself, for this could be long and challenging.

On your arrival, your followers on the Lady Vengeance (such as Malady, Gareth, Almira, and Tarquin) will show up and pray for you. Their prayer will reduce your source point cost of all skills to 0, so you can basically cast all of your most powerful spells at no source cost now. So don't forget to make use of it and memorize your best skills. Also, if you have not already done so, remember to split your resurrection scrolls evenly to every party member so they can resurrect each other if needed.

As you walk forwards, surprise! Lucian the Divine is alive; he has faked his death all along, and is waiting for you along with Dallis, Braccus Rex, silent Gareth and some magisters. Lucian will explain his plan to you, why he killed all the other Godwoken, why the Voidwoken appeared, and what he wants to do - removing all source from the world to heal the veil so there can finally be peace in Rivellon.

Dallis will also reveal her true face - that of an Eternal - and explain that Fane is actually her father, and she seeks to offer her father the chance to atone for his sins. She will also reveal that the real Dallis was the one who found her tomb, whereupon she replaced the real Dallis to become a Magister General.

When all is said and done, you'll have 2 choices: Sacrifice yourself and surrender your source "for the good of Rivellon", or refuse and attack Lucian and Dallis. Both choices will lead to a fight. A little warning here: if any of your teammates are dead when you kill the last enemy (like Braccus, for example), they will end up as permanently dead and not join you in the epilogue - so make sure all your allies are alive before landing the finishing blow.

Surrendering your Source

If you choose to sacrifice yourself, it turns out Braccus Rex stole the leashing wand from Dallis, and escaped his chains. Dallis, Lucian, and everyone else will be allied with you, while you all attempt to crush Braccus. Braccus however, will receive a "gift" from the God-King, the Kraken, and it will cast "Fate of the Sworn" spells and summon enemies you have fought before, like Isbeil, Lord Linder Kemm, and the like. The Kraken will not be able to summon them if you drained them of their source before, though, so if you drained Isbeil and Linder Kemm's spirits of their source previously, the Kraken won't be able to summon them to aid Braccus in this fight. Regardless of whether he can summon them or not, though, the Kraken will continuously summon more enemies to the battle, like Black Ring members. In order to kill the Kraken, you will need to use ranged skills and spells, but in this fight, all you really need to do is kill Braccus Rex, and the Kraken will die. Also, not like it really matters at this point, but killing each of them grants 299,700XP.

You can alternatively use the spell "Charm Voidwoken" on Kraken to charm it and all its summons, making the battle trivial.

After the Braccus falls, Dallis will say she has failed, and says the fate of the world lies in your hands. The battle, it seems, is won.

Refuse to surrender your Source

Battle will ensue, pitting you against all enemies. You do not have to kill them all; you only need to kill either Lucian or Dallis. Depending on your party build, you may find either to be easier to defeat. If you kill Braccus, he will be free from Dallis's control. Don't waste your time and simply focus down one of them; when one of them falls, Braccus Rex will proclaim that he seized the leashing wand from Dallis, and he will then summon the Kraken with help from the God-King. The battle then begins same as the above - as if you surrendered your source to Dallis - but with one caveat: everyone will be hostile to you, but Dallis and her gang will also be hostile to Braccus's gang. Braccus will also regenerate all his hit points. "Charm Voidwoken" can be a life safer here.

Like the above, the easiest way to complete this quest is to focus down Braccus first. Once he dies, the Kraken and all his summons will perish. Then, you can focus down Dallis (if you haven't already) for an easy kill and the battle ends. 

The Choice

If you signed a contract with the doctor previously in the quest, "Doctor's Orders", when you defeat Braccus Rex, the doctor will appear and kill Lucian and Dallis if they are still alive. He will then ask you to honor the contract, whereby if you agree, you will need to kill your teammates. In this ending, the Doctor will drive out the God-King, and rule the world with you as gods. If you refuse, he will kill your main character and you'll have to kill him with your team mates.

Assuming you didn't sign the contract with the doctor, if you slept with one of your companions back then before Act IV, they will kiss you passionately and declare that they love you, while you can say you love them back. After that, you'll have to make a choice: Ascend to Divinity, or refuse it. If you refuse it, and there is no one to ascend as well, the God-King will laugh at your foolishness, enslaving the world to his whims, while you become his servant. There will still be an epilogue on the repaired Lady Vengeance, though, but it will be a grim one.

If you decide to accept the power of Divinity, you will have to choose 1 of 3 choices, which will decide the fate of all Rivellon. All choices will show a brief cutscene, and will lead to a nice epilogue with you on the repaired Lady Vengeance.

  1. You can fulfil your destiny as the Godwoken and become the new Divine. If you choose this, you will become the new Divine, adored, beloved and loved by all. You will form an alliance to combat the God-King and his minions, but the threat of the God-King returning still looms somewhat, due to the void rift not being completely closed. Windego's fate depends on whether you freed her from being Sworn in Act IV.
  2. You can give source back to all the peoples and release Divinity into the world. When everyone is Divine, no-one is Divine. If you do this, then everyone will become a sourcerer and band together to drive back the God-King into the void. Although there ushered a new Golden Age of Peace for a time, the people eventually used their source powers to wage wars and kill each other, in a desperate bid for more power. Like the above choice, Windego's fate depends on whether you freed her from being Sworn in Act IV.
  3. You can allow yourself and all the world to be purged of its source. If you select this option, you and all the other Godwoken are cherished and remembered as great heroes, having sacrificed all your source to seal the rift in the void, removing the threat of the God-King forever. During the epilogue, it is also revealed that Malady somehow managed to save you from being purged completely and being turned into Silent Monks, but you won't be able to use or collect Source any more. Windego will be freed from her shackles regardless of whether you used the Swornbreaker to sever her link back in Act IV.

As Fane, you are also given two additional choices, in which your ancient mistake may be put right. You may choose to save your people from the Void, either by bringing the God King home and redeeming yourself in his eyes or by sealing him away forever and allowing the other Eternals to return. In either case, the mortal races will be enslaved and basically everyone will hate you when you return to the ship.

In the epilogue, you can speak to your companions and friends to learn what's next for them. If you never ate the phoenix egg you may have obtained in Reaper’s Coast, it will have hatched into an adorable baby phoenix. When you are ready, speak to the Lady Vengeance unicorn to end the game, showing a long cutscene of what transpired to the various NPCs and towns you left in your entire jouney in Rivellon.

Congratulations on finishing Divinity: Original Sin II!

 

 

 

Tips & Tricks

  • There are MANY reported bugs with the choices and fight progression here at the end of the game.  Make sure you save just before you start (and possibly even during) as it is easy to get locked into a situation where the game will not progress.  Sometimes the initial fight doesn't even trigger, sometimes you can kill Braccus without killing Dallis or Lucian and the fight will not end, sometimes the second phase will not trigger at all, etc.  Just reload and try again, being sure to either drop Lucian or Dallis enough to engage Braccus' conversation about breaking free to trigger the second phase, and you SHOULD be able to make it through.

      Oh my god that final fight is the worst ****ing thing I've ever seen.

      Ok, now you get to fight the strongest boss in the game.

      *You kill Lucian*

      OH GUESS WHAT, VREDEMAN IS BRACCUS AND HES BROKEN FREE NOW FIGHT 3 OTHER HYPER-BOSSES AND THE KRAKEN IS GONNA NUKE YOUR PARTY EVERY TURN, AND YOU HAVE NO HEALTH OR ARMOR BECAUSE LUCIAN AND DALLIS WERE DECENTLY POWERFUL

      Christ it's so ****ing bad, I'm not subjecting myself to this stupid ass **** ever again.

        Lol. High initiative Ranger w/ Skin Graft scrolls, adrenaline and ballistic shot. If you dont go before Lucian there is still a good chance you survive his turn. Tactical retreat to top of stairs. Drink +11 finesse potion. Drink +11 Wits potion. Peace of Mind scroll yourself. You have 2 pts left.

        Now, cycle adrenaline > ballistic shot Vredman > skin graft scroll... forever... you literally have an infinitely long round. Focus Vredman and the end. No Kraken, no 2nd phase. GG.

          Sworn Co-Op playthroughs. You will be forced to fight the entire map and your former party, use sworn breaker, or die by rejecting the godking. You will need 70 wits to beat Lucian's initiative otherwise he goes first and will attack you as they are neutral to your party as long as you are alive. If you die in this fight Lucian and Co will then aggro the remaining godwoken and the quest proceeds as normal. When Dallis or Vrederman gets weak enough this will trigger a cut scene which will pull you out of invis, playing dead, or sneak you will need to tank the Kraken's attacks or worse it's summons because they will go before you and proceed to smack you unless there is a charmed npc or a summon like a bone widow to work as a decoy.

            Had issues with this one.

            Then just took a bunch of invisibility potions and waited until everyone is done fighting. Then moved closer to remaining enemies and waited for all skills to reset. Then one turn kill on each enemy.

              Party got totally screwed over with the sallow man's "airborne plague" skill so getting him out of the way really helped the second time. Just teleported him over to a platform he couldn't get down from and for whatever reason he stayed there. Good for me, since I was going after Kraken for achievement unlock.

              • Anonymous

                Never tried charming the kraken due to the high magic armor.

                What works well is you go teleport Braccus Rex near your allies (scroll works), then burst him down completely -should be over before his turn even comes up. If you allied with Lucian/Dallis, its ends even faster.

                • Anonymous

                  Braccus didn't trigger on Lucian's KO only once Dallis was near Death. One of my Characters was down when we go teleported and for some reason coudlnt resurrect them. Then the kraken came and on round two just blasted everyone and we all died. Great game....

                    The part about the Kraken not being able to summon Kemm, Sallow and Isbeil if you consume their souls is wrong. Consumed all three, but they were still summoned by the Kraken, which makes no sense story-wise.

                      Fane and Red Prince invokers, just focused in braccus, letting his undead kill lucian´s people. Pretty easy, more or less. Doctor was harder

                        I just happen to haul 3 barrels of deathfog in my pockets lol
                        Dropped it just before the stairs, then my Sebille ranger just tactically retreated and dropped one of them on top of lucian's head xD, so there's him.
                        Then I just quickly nuked Braccus with Sebille's Farsight+high huntsman (+85% DMG from high ground with ballistic shot adding +5%DMG per every meter), Necro Fane used infect and raised bloated corpse from the gheist that had just dropped dead cause of that deathfog barrel.
                        Bloated corpse goes boom and rips Braccus to shreds, without him even saying a word (I believe he "intervenes" when his HP drops to about 30-40%, cause attacking him with the bloated corpse made him do his speech)
                        And its just Dallis and some white magister that didn't touch the deathfog
                        vs. Fane, Sebille, Red Prince and unlucky Lohse who, unfortunately- DID tough the fog, but was quickly reanimated :D Ez game.

                        With Braccus intervening it was total anihilation cause Lucian nuked my Fane with some heavy battering ram or something like this, so he was out, then Kraken and his band (mostly Sallow + Kemm) did the rest, so if you happen to nuke braccus without him doing some majic, it gets like 200% easier.

                          For the first time in 3 years, my Fane and Red Prince end the battle in 2 turns. Rex died after speaking Blah Blah because of Storm skills and Kraken fight did not appear. LoL if it is a bug thank you. I just run lone wolf wizard for the first time on Normal. LoL Wanna end it battle too quickly and glad it happen.

                          • Funnily, if you had Braccus "charmed" during phase transition, kraken will skip summoning its allies (Kemm, Isbeil, Sallow) and will attack Braccus instead. Making the fight much easier.

                                I avoided the whole second phase of combat and finished the entire encounter in 2 rounds. My thief character had initiative. I drank some green tea, then did backlash on Lucian. From there, adrenaline > daggers drawn > skin graft scroll, repeat 3x... Lucian should be at around 2,000-2,300 health. One more time (adrenaline etc) triggers Lucian's dialog just before the second battle starts... however daggers drawn attack is still going and kills him before the dialog finishes and he drops dead. From there all my characters used green tea and the remaining skin graft scrolls (I had 6) and mopped up everyone else taking barely any damage.

                                  I didn't think I could do this, I mean, in other games you cannot mind-control end-game bosses but in this fight you can pretty much charm any boss without a magic shield and can turn to chicken anyone without a physical shield. At one point, I had charmed the Sallow Man and chickened Braccus on the platform where Dallis was perched in dragon form... They killed each other.

                                    Braccus Rex, although undead will NOT lose full health when soul mate and drinking health potion. Thus, soul mate is almost useless.

                                      Why is Ifran so butt hurt about making the objectively best choice. “The betrayer”. Also, I killed Lucian and Dallas and thought I was plugging the hole myself. Kinda annoyed they’re still around.

                                          I have a "Sworn" Fane and just defeated Braccus, and killed my other characters as well. There's no more conversation or things for me to do. It seems that I am stuck in the map now, is there a bug or is there anything else am I supposed to click on? Thanks!

                                            Also quite disappointing ending. It feels weird. You can fight against them all, but then you need to focus Dallis first, and then on the second stage focus only Braccus. You can side with Lucian and then focus only Braccus. Or you can fight them all and focus Braccus right away and avoid second stage fight. All these switching sides kinda weird. And why Braccus all of a sudden the main center of attention and arch-enemy? I expected some epic fight between two sides of the conflict, but instead... this. The first fight against Alexander was more epic and satisfying.

                                            The game is awesome, of course, just the ending is meh...

                                              That is an interesting game balance wise. This fight could be extremely hard or extremely easy. First I did it hard way - with both stages of the fight, everyone hostile.
                                              Second with mage (54% crit chance): Green Tea + Adrenaline + three teleport scrolls + Pyroclastic Eruption + Skin Graft + Pyroclastic Eruption - and only Dallis standing with half health (specifically left her out to not trigger second part) and still have Adrenaline and enough AP to finish her. They didn't get to do anything besides Lucian the first move.

                                              Basically, stay away from Green Tea, if you want a challenge.

                                                If anyone has the issue whereby you chose to surrender your source, move straight into second phase, kill Braccus but the fight does not actually end... even though there is no enemies, DO NOT RELOAD. The fix is that you have to damage Dallis even if she is not an enemy. Once you "kill" her the event will end and you will progress to the end.

                                                  Accidentally killed Braccus with a Time Warp-Green Tea combo with multi spec Mage Fane. Didn't realised there's supposed to be another phase where he summons enemies

                                                    Killing Lucian first did NOT trigger the Braccus phase for me as the article suggests. It only happened once I killed Dallis. And for some reason Ifan revived with no armor on towards the end of the fight... maybe a bug after being revived several times?

                                                      What in incredible game though! My first time beating on classic.

                                                        So, something wierd happened when I did this fight just now. Going in blind, refused to surrender my source, I focused Dallis, Braccus broke free, summond Kraken, they wiped the floor with us. For the second try I decided to avoid damaging Dallis and try to transition to the second part with as few enemies as possible. This resulted in me winning the fight and proceeding to the ending without triggering the second phase. A shame, as I would have preferred to do the fight properly.

                                                          There seems to be a bug in this fight, not sure whether it has been mentioned prior. My party leader was Fane and was sworn going into this fight. My party was not specced for this fight at all so I switched my mage into intelligence pure and geomancer, with pyroclastic eruption doing ~5k damage on the tooltip (would have done more because of the overlap in AoE). So basically I skipped the second phase because my guy went second after Lucian and one-shotted all of them. After that the God King shows up and demands Fane uphold the oath and kill the other party members. I refused and GK permanently kills Fane, removing him from the party. Dallis and Lucian didn't have any dialogue after GK killed Fane, which I don't think is supposed to happen. So with the other three I couldn't leave the arena and couldn't use waypoints and couldn't get the trigger to advance to the final cutscenes. I had to reload and use a Swornbreaker on Fane for it to proceed properly, which I felt was a better ending anyway. Ifan said Fane was one of his best friends.

                                                            I had like 20 Charm arrows, so yeah you might be able to guess what my strat was lmao. | First get rid of their magic armor with multi trap + Exploding arrow and then just charm everyone.

                                                            I actually had to fight Fane and the other guys didnt know you could just kill Dallis, im not sure killing only Lucian works atleast it didnt for me.
                                                            You really start to notice how op your own chars are when theres someone with 4k MA and PA with 8k HP. But Chameleon/Challenge/Poisonfog Arrows(on myself) and play dead really came in handy. Didnt notice you could just kill Braccus either so I ended up just charming both while healing myself up from the last fight and waiting for challenge to be off cd so I finally finished of braccus and it just ended so i reloaded and just killed the kraken first.

                                                              If a party member made a pact with the doctor instead of the main, it basically blocks out the endings where you surrender your source and where you ascend with the doctor and you lose one party member for good :(

                                                                So i played with 6-man party mod and at the end Red prince and Ifan decided to betray me :\
                                                                Ifan said he wanted to build source communism and red prince said that he wants to become divine for the dragons blah-blah-blah. Is it because i had not enough attitude? My attitudes with Beast, Sebille and Loshe were around 100, but i had only 74-75 for Ifan/Prince. How much attitude do i need to ensure that everyone will support me at the end?

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  Fight got easy as soon as i respecd Prince into a two-handed anathema one-shot machine with 7k physical nuke being dealt to everyone around him upon his death. Tacticion mode bearing in mind, Prince one-shotted Braccus Rex with Anathema under enrage + onslaught (ye, you can actually use onslaught with Anathema in DE). After doing that he was targeted by both Dallis and Lucian, which resulted in their death upon killing Prince. All that was left was for Ifan to resurrect Prince into Gheist and two magisters to kill him again and deal 7k damage the final time.

                                                                  • Anonymous

I thought it was done and the only thing left to do was to talk to your companions so I always turned it off there.

                                                                    • Anonymous

The result is one of my crew betrays (That's Ifan, I don't know why, maybe he's the weakest, or he has the least attitude toward me), the final fight is fighting with him, and he get killed easily, game ends

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        I chose to surrender my source which made the battle (presumably, according to what I'm reading below) infinitely easier. Was level 19 with a party of the Red Prince (as a Deathknight build), Lohse (Druid/Summoning build), Fane (Pyro build), and a random elf ranger/archer and it was... needlessly easy.

                                                                        Nobody lost all of their magic armor. I killed Sallow Man almost exclusively with my ranger and Lucian nearly 1v1'd Braccus - I think I got a big overpower off on him with the Red Knight, but outside of that I barely did any damage to him. Lucian was hitting him for 4k, 2k, etc.

                                                                        I didn't have to kill Isbiel, Kemm, or any of the black ring spawns that popped up nor the Kraken. Just singularly killed Sallow Man with my Ranger and CC'd/moved around strategically with my other characters while Lucian tore through Braccus.

                                                                        Was expecting an hour long fight.

                                                                        Instead it was about 10 minutes and I literally don't think any of my characters lost their ~1-2k Magic Armor. Kinda silly. Almost bummed I didn't try and refuse giving up my source, after all the time I've put into the game.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          Chicken clawed Dallis and
                                                                          Then proceeded to shackle pain Braccus.
                                                                          Next phase starts, drop second Deathfog Crate, walk into Deathfog with shackled Character, Braccus dies GG EZ.

                                                                          • Anonymous

In so doing he doesnt have a chance to summon his black ring members. Also, the Kraken will attack Braccus, knocking his shield down in two turns allowing you to charm him again. When Braccus is dead the Kraken runs away so the only person you end up fighting is Dallis in Dragon form.

                                                                            I used Rupture Tendons (with Torturer) on charmed Braccus. He lost a LOT of health while running or teleporting.

                                                                            • Anonymous

Didn't realize I had to kill braccus first until he spawned two eisbells. could barely stay awake during the ending video

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                Ridiculous how it's not even mentioned in the guide, wtf are you guys doing? - EXACTLY what initiates the second phase of the battle is: Vredeman escaping Dallis's enslavement and retaliating with the full transformation into Braccus Rex. So in order to trigger that event you MUST damage Dallis (until her health bar drops to approximately 75%). You will know the next stage commences when amidst the battle Vredeman remarks "Are you feeling pooly Dallis?...". With this in mind, you should obviously focus your efforts on Dallis first. You will transition quickly and smoothly without breaking the game or missing out on any plot development.

                                                                                • Anonymous

I used a lot of Livin' on the Edge, and faked my death while Lucian and Braccus attacked each other... Then I used Ifan up high with LotE to do as much damage to Braccus as I could. Then I got Fane up, teleported over to Braccus and finished him off by turning him into a chicken and healing him a bunch while he ran around in the fire the Kraken created. fyi, it doesn't matter if your allies are dead, they come back.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

On my 2nd playthrough that I just completed I had the Devourer armour set on Red Prince and Vredeman/Braccus got targetted at start of first fight with the Devourer Mark, so I attempted to focus fire him first to get the buff from killing him. For some reason the 2nd phase didn't kick in despite me KOing Dallis during a Pyroclastic Eruption cast whilst Braccus was still acting as Vredeman. I then proceeded to kill him, then finished off Lucian still in 1st phase and the game then moved to quest completion. This is on PS4 Definitive Edition.

After this, sebille wanted to be a divine and killed her. When I come back, the game was stuck; I was unable to do anything wanderin around. In next try, I surrendered my source and then I ascend as a divine. How is that possible? The final battle is extremely buggy.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

Forget about attacking anyone else. Focus her down first!

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          Honestly, this game is laggy, bugged to ****, and poorly balanced. I hope the devs will do a better job next time.

The final-final fight is more like your party vs Lucian/Braccus as you'll be their priority target No fight previously has been such ****. Good luck with your game not glitching out if you choose the other option

Lucian stuck to Bracchus like stink on a monkey. He killed Bracchus while I had my team (Prince, Sebille and Fane) close to Dallis and beating fiercely on Sallow Man and Lord Kemm. This was my 2nd play through and seemed easier because the void monster didn't spit more monsters onto the battlefield before Lucian finished Bracchus. The first time I fought this battle, same sides, I think it was a 4 or 5 hour battle. I lost Lucian and almost lost Dallis. A crippling blow by Sebille finished Bracchus in that fight.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                    • Why Dallis has Dragon form, the world may never know. I feel like the devs just threw it in as the obligatory rpg dragon fight since there is only one other in the game and its optional. Also the Dallis' timeline is pretty *****ed. In the journal you find on Lady Vengeance, she is gushing over Braccus Rex and how she sees herself in him, that certainly couldn't have been the Eternal. So when did Fanes daughter start impersonating her I have no *****ing clue.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

Use Living on the Edge and Death Wish on your char with the highest physical damage, just before triggering the conversation with Lucian. When the fight starts, drop a Deathfog Crate right in the middle of the enemies. After that use teleport scrolls and your jump skill to move everybody to safety but the char with Living on the Edge. Then it's just a matter of destroying the Deathfog Crate (which can be done with a fireball scroll for 1 AP cost). It will instantly disable Lucian and double the damage of your Physical Damage Char, that will be able to kill Dallis in just one turn. With the above strategy, your party will be healthy and with all cooldowns up in the Braccus Rex phase. Than, all you have to do is rush him down (Green Tea helps a lot)

Great game ruined by the amount of googling one has to do to even remotely suss 60% of the quests. And too much can go wrong just by selling something you didn't realise you'd need eleventy-million hours later like the fish exchange scroll.

Here, take half damage of your health before you even get a chance to have a turn. Who the hell came up with that idea. Why do so many fights in this game start you off as the worst underdog and the only way to win is by doing some stupid cheese strat. Good concept ruined by horrible decision making. Now these idiots are making BG3....

It is easy to achieve, for example, if you have a powerful wizard (need Savage Sortilege talent) in your team, you could... 1. Drink green tea, and some potions to boost your Intelligence and Wits. 2. Cast Summon Inner Demon and cast Terrify to destroy all the magic armor of Braccus. 3. Teleport Lucian to the middle between Dallis and Braccus. (Grouped enemies will intensify the damage of Pyroclastic Eruption) 4. Cast Pyroclastic Eruption. Dallis, Lucian, and Braccus should die.

I wouldn't have guessed really the Ktaken is a Voidwoken so wouldn't have tried this idea in the first place but even if I had you first have to knock down his magic defense which itself takes a good amount of effort (I am not soloing and have the Prince as my main, along with Fane, Ifan, and Beast. Doesn't seem as trivial as the Wiki seems to suggest.

The game still continued and I'm now sitting on the throne. Made the whole final fight MUCH easier. I got Braccus down to about 1.8k hp and then used my Onslaught ability on him. His dialogue triggered after the third hit but then four and five followed and immediately interrupted and killed him.

Those plagues actually stack (and bypass armor), so the Kraken had like -100% to all resistances, 90% lowered damage, and half health, so he was quite easy to take down. Thanks Sallow Man!

If you select this option, you and all the other Godwoken are cherished and remembered as great heroes, having sacrificed all your source to seal the rift in the void" - BULL*****WRONG description. I've chosen 1st ending, very glad about this, but then I came here. I read this about 3rd option and think "Hmm, "you and all the other Godwoken are cherished and remembered as great heroes", "sacrificed all your source to seal the rift in the void", so (, I think while reading this,) I will destroy the Void and become a hero, with my friends, nice, let's look at this ending, maybe I change my ending to this variant..." ... F*CK NO. CHANGE the description: "You surrender your soul and souls of your friends to warmonger degenerate,- Eternal Dallis, and, pathetic coward, who sat in his protected by traps, little vault underground, instead of fighting the Void, - "Divine" Lucian. They turn you into Silent Monks, destroying your souls, while themselves becoming "divines" and claiming the throne. Malady with her demonic tricks somehow restores you from pieces of your torn souls. And she is disappointed indeed. You are f*cking nobody. Obey to Lucian order. Congrats. You can now go and F yourself as you are nobody and not needed." About phoenix: I never ate the egg, egg was saved on the ship, in the chest, but there was no word about the hatching. Overall, first ending is the best. Very good game.

After that i ran and popped invis potions and let the other two sides obliterate each other. Literally won because Dallis and Lucian killed Braccus for me. Pots for the win people

Only Beast will stand by my side. Nowhere can I find any information on this. Looking up guides, I am supposed to end up on the ship after the final fight- not fighting my own party in the void. I presume my game is broken. I am going to try to remove those two members for the final fight, which will make that battle even more difficult, but I sure am tired of all the glitches in this game (I have encountered quite a few).

I had heard of it. And... it went nothing like this... Dallis revealed herself, so did lucian, they told me to give up my source. I said no, they tried to fight me, they were all grouped together so, Dallis, Lucian and The cloaked figure (Viderman?) all died at the same time in my fist turn. Dallis and Lucian were "unconscious" The two magisters fought, they both died after. Then, the game asked me to take divinity, I did, back to ship, everyone happy, end credits, world rallied, god king defeated, void sealed, happily ever after outside of driftwood being eaten by ocean voidwoken. But no mention of Braccus, no Kraken... I did reduce the Kraken to 0hp in the harbor. I had also killed the doctor. I was playing as a custom Elf Undead and had Beast as an ally...

Dallis Dragon Form looks cool but she's terrible with it. Doesn't even fly off to face the Kraken.

It doesn't have to happen, and it is not a bug. You can give up your source, fight everyone still in the temple, kill Braccus without letting him get a turn, and continue the fight normally. No Kraken, no second phase, no nothing. After you kill everyone, the game normally continues, allowing you to chose to become Divine or not, The Doctor can arrive, everything continues normally and it doesn't break the game whatsoever. I've tested it throughout multiple saves and even recorded it. Patch: v3.6.36.3440

Says his final speech, calls god king, nothing happens, keeps taking damage from fire, finally dies. Happy end.

Damn these bugs!!

I did last time because I had Ifan and he told me I should do so, but this time I didn't have him, so I only have the choice to accept or refuse divinity.

It took out Lucian (1 health, just had to known down the armor) and the Gheist on the side.

Killed Braccus in the first fight - Kraken died on its own/ Seems to be a feature.

I consumed Sallow and Kemm and they both still appeared.

You also need to be behind for backstab crit. Works both on Classic and on Tactitian , i checked both
