The Covenant is a Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II




Important NPCs



The Covenant Objectives

  1. Investigate the rising of the dead
  2. On Nameless Isle, decide to serve Godking or not
  3. Break free from God King using swornbreakers



The Covenant Walkthrough

 Quest can only be done as an Undead main character (Fane or custom).

Upon traveling through the marshes you will be attacked by a group of undead, just prior to meeting Zaleskar. The head enemy undead will speak with you opening up this quest.  After killing, speak with Zaleskar to continue quest.

On Nameless Isle, a Voidwoken will offer undead character a chance to serve the Godking. If you accept, this will lead to the Godking ending, unless you use the swornbreaker to free yourself.



Tips & Tricks

  • Becoming Sworn to the Covenant will give you a massive stat boost (+2 Attribute points, +2 Combat Skill Points and +2 Talent Points) which is kept even if you use the Swornbreaker and break the Covenant.
  • On the Nameless island regardless if you have gotten the Quest earlier or not you get offered to serve the Godking by the Voidvoken

      In the Definitive edition this quest is gone. You will get the opportunity regardless. *Cries in the 10+ hours I tried everything
      Don't get stuck like I did

        Playing as Fane I get no dialogue from the voidwoken to become sworn. Only to attack or express distaste to the God King.

          Does swearing to the covenant cause any companions to leave? Does it lower their morale? I’m looking to complete Ifan, Lohse and Sebille’s quests that I have never done before, and get the god king ending, is this possible?

              If you are playing in multiplayer as an undead character but you are not the leader, Will you get the option to join the Covenant as well?

                If you intend to break the covenant, make sure you do it prior to completing the Path of Blood otherwise you will not be able to use the Swornbreaker (you will see the animation, but the tag won't be removed).

                  So I came across this quest WAY later- Act 2. After killing Ryker and looting the hell out of his mansion, I got the quest after reading a note on the second floor in a locked desk.

                  My guess is that it's meaningless without teh bit earlier, which I had missed.
