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, 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 of source, so you can still use source in the end. 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.

      1st playthrough, had to reload just before fight because Braccus glitched to below the map at start of 2nd phase as he was stood on part of the ground that disappears at start of 2nd phase when that triggered and it made it nigh impossible to win due to not being able to hit him until he finally jumped to a spot on the map, with my party pretty much wrecked. 2nd attempt I ensured that I focus fired Dallis before he had chance to move anywhere stupid. 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.

        At first try, I refused to surrender, focused on Dallis first and killed Braccus. 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.

          This guide is ****ing aweful.

          Killing Lucian does nothing to start the next fight, when you refuse to surrender your source, all you have to do is put Dallis down to a low enough health pool and that'll trigger the next fight. Forget about attacking anyone else. Focus her down first!

            Long, awful fight. Also, you don't get epilogue if one of your OG chars isn't the winner in the final final battle.

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

                Surrender your source unless you're a masochist or you've got some good rebalancing mods that fix Larian's bs decisions. 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

                  I surrendered my source and sided with Lucian and Dallis. 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.

                    The article is wrong. Killing Lucian (or rather making him "unconscious" does not trigger the second step of the fight, only nearly killing Dallis does.

                      I litteraly restarted game to do properly drain soul from Isbeil, Linder Kemm and Pale man to prevent them show in final battle..what a suprise when Kraken summon them again...so in DE it does not work.

                        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.

                          It's possible to beat the first stage of the fight in just 2 turns with a Elf char with high initiative and the talent that reduces the AP cost of scrolls and grenades, and other with level 2 Necromancy. 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)

                            Bit of a f@rt of an ending. 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. Not to mention teleporter pyramids at end puzzle, or blood rain (both my characters had leech so I couldn't even attack myself to get the blood needed for the floor puzzle. Had to start again!!)

                                  Worst type of fight. 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....

                                    Confirmed in 3.6.58.1306, killing Braccus before he can move will make you skip the phrase 2 combat and win the game. 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.

                                      Does that Charm Voidwoken idea actually work? 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.

                                        I just killed Braccus Rex before he could trigger the second phase and it worked. 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.

                                          Even if you consume souls of all three pawns of God-King (Sallow Man, dwarf woman and paladin) they will be summoned by Voidwoken. I consumed them all but they were summoned.

                                            Tough fight, but nothing a few sips of green tea and a mind maggot grenade or two couldn't fix :D Had Kemm and the Sallow man (summoned by the Kraken) charmed and they whittled down Braccus while the Sallow Man kept plaguing the Kraken. 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!

                                              "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" - 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.
