The Collar


Location Fort Joy
Suggested Level 2+

The Collar is a main Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II

This is one of the main quests automatically acquired at the beginning of the game.

Important NPCs



  1. Removes the Source Collar of the main character after completing The Arena of Fort Joy quest, allowing that character to equip amulets.



  • Become the champion of the underground arena at the Fort Joy kitchen and then tell Nebora about your success. (See The Arena of Fort Joy
  • Later on, Leya at the Sanctuary of Amadia can remove rest of the Source Collars from your team by completing the Most Dangerous When Cornered quest. You can find the Sanctuary by heading southeast after escaping Fort Joy. Note: You need to speak  to Leya with a character who still has the collar on to trigger the collar removal for your party.
  • If for whatever reason the collars are still not removed (e.g. you explore and progress with the game in the unintended direction), they will be removed after you complete Act I.


Tips & Tricks

  • After removing your main character's collar, any Magister who sees you will throw you into jail.
  • When playing multiplayer, the character who will have their collar removed is the one crowned champion at the end of the second phase of the arena fight. Consider this when challenging your friends for the honour of being champion.

      One addiotion: If you play with mercenaries in Act1 with the help of a mod their collars do NOT get removed from Leya

        What if you saved it after losing to the fight in the arena? I missed the part about it being a one time deal. Is there another way?

          I spoke with Leya after we rescued Gareth, using one of my living characters (Ifan in my case). One of the options was "can you remove my Source collar?" She said yes and took them all off.

            Talk to Leya with Lohse and sing. If you choose the correct choices, Leya will be happier and remove your party collar,

              If you have Beast in your party, when you arrive in Amadia - you talk to the Dwarf "Duggan". Let Beast go ahead and talk to him - and the conversation just flows right into "You must be uncomfortable with that collar on ya" - and his wife (I assume) Leya sitting next to him then removes ALL collars from ALL party members.
              Nice surprise! All my collars are off!

                Pretty Sure Nebora's Method is bugged, if it's intended, it's a rather annoying choice.
                The intended arena method requires you to win the arena, then talk to "the thorny one" who will prompt you to go to Nebora to remove it.
                This only works for the Main Character (player's avatar), but at no point does the game specify so, and dialogue with "the thorny one" prompts every character.

                  Si me dejo que me detengan, cuando me he quitado el collar y me llevan a las mazmorras, escapar no ha problema es sencillo, pero me han quitado todos mis objetos. Se pueden recuperar? y donde? gracias

                    I think this quest is bugged, I've spoken to Nebora after completing that arena fight and she did not ask to remove the collar. I think the bug occurs when you speak to her for the first time after you've already fought in the arena.
