Gareth is a NPC in Divinity: Original Sin 2.


Gareth information


Gareth location

Act 1:
  • Gareth first appears in ruins on north part of The Hollow Marshes, where he must be saved as part of Most Dangerous When Cornered.

  • After saving Gareth, he moves to the Sanctuary of Amadia.

  • Gareth can join the others during Call to Arms, and can then be found at the abandoned camp mustering for the attack.

  • Gareth may also be found on the Lady Vengeance, when sailing for the Reaper's Coast.

Act 2:
  • In front of abandoned farmhouse around Paradise Down, In Reaper's Coast.

  • Back on the Lady Vengeance, depending on choices made during Burying the Past.

 Act 3:
  • Gareth will begin the act on the Lady Vengeance, where he will express his intention to scout ahead for the player character.

  • Gareth can later be found at the Temple Of Tir-Cendelius confronting Alexander.

Act 4:
  • If Gareth remains with the player character, he will spawn in the ruins of the Lady Vengeance, and will move to the Hall of Echoes to lead the remainder of the ships crew.

Notes and Tips

  • Gareth can fight along side you on the Lady Vengeance.

  • Gareth has a chance of being killed during turn based combat in the ruins, or fighting Dallis on board The Lady Vengeance, which would deprive you of an early way to grab Warfare skills.

  • He can die in other encounters further down the line as well.

  • Gareth will not join you on the ship sailing to act 3 if you convince him to get revenge, but you will meet him there under a different circumstance. Otherwise, he joins you on the ship.

      If you help Gareth kill Alexander, he becomes 'free' and decides to blow you off. He "disavows you and parts ways." That's it for Gareth then, but I'd rather have him around for later, though he was some small help killing Alexander, though not much. Followed ice with fire spells which negated each other, and had no protection spells so we had to buff/save him. So he could flip us off? Nah, I'm going back to sending him to ship like a good little soldier, since I have high persuasion. Which skill is used is irrelevant if your PER is high enough.

        Spoilers for late act 4: In my game, Gareth kinda disappeared at some point during act 3; he was present during the Alexander confrontation, I joined him in the fight and he survived, but afterward I don't know where he went. He was absent for almost all of act 4, until I noticed that during the big fight with Dallis and co., there was a "Purged Gareth" among their ranks. Is there any side quest for him that I missed out on? I don't think I missed anything based on the current wiki page/comments.

          Not sure if it's already been posted, but there's a bug in which if you look at him on the Lady Vengeance when you're far away from him, his head and shoulders will be floating off the ground while his body will be a lying mess on the floor.

            Edited the page, adding some few info on his role/encounters after Act 1. Tried not to add so much spoilers since the page have links leading to later quests anyway.

              Killing everyone in the Seeker Camp before saving him will net you around 20k Experience (Klaud and Jules gave me 1500 and 1200 Exp respectively, Everyone else gave me 2250 Exp) and cause him to head straight to the Abandoned Camp prior to the final Act 1 fight instead of going to the Seeker Camp

              Unsure if this is affected by the woman waiting outside for him as well... Cause I did kill her prior to saving him.

                    Spoilers ahead: The journal said Gareth left paradise downs after I went the mercy route with jonathan then killed the monks, Malady kept telling me that we're missing Gareth when trying to progress to the next act, in act 3 he appears when you go to meet Alexander and you need to pass a strength or memory check to have him stand down, otherwise you need to kill him.

                      If you progress to Act 2, he will be doing something at Paradise Downs. Do his quest first before you go to the Black Pit. If you go to black pit first and finished the story there, Gareth will go missing after you talk to him again. When you proceed to Act 3, malady's dialogue suggests you get him back on the ship before you go, but I heard people say he appears in Act 3 anyway.

                        If you pickpocket him, he will keep saying that he's still suspicious about you, even after checking your bag.

                        This will prompt some persuasion options that, if failed, will get you in a fight against the whole settlement.
