The Key to Freedom is a Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II. The Swornbreaker is a powerful weapon, but is valuable to those who seek to be free from the grasp of the God-King... Will you use it or gift it?
- Find the Haft and the Blade of the Swornbreaker.
- Craft the Swornbreaker.
- Give it to Almira.
There are three parts necessary to forge the Swornbreaker. The schematic can be learned from Ryker at Stonegarden, Almira at Paradise Downs (she moves to your ship if you help her with her quest), or from simply using the tablet itself. Note that you do not have to learn the recipe in order to craft it; simply combine all 3 pieces and it will craft the weapon just fine.
The Haft can be found in the Sallow Man's war room, in an Ornate chest:
The blade can be found at the hidden Arena, past the portal which is found behind the locked door in the Teacher's hall of the Academy:
The picture above shows the portal to the hidden Arena, which is located behind the locked door in the Teacher's hall in the Academy.
Now, with all 3 pieces in hand, simply craft the Swornbreaker by combining the Shaft, the Blade, and the Tablet, as shown in the picture below:
The Swornbreaker is crafted based on the level of the crafter, so if your crafter is level 25, the Swornbreaker will be level 25. If your crafter is level 19, the Swornbreaker will be level 19.
With the Swornbreaker in hand, you can choose to keep it, but to complete the quest you will have to give it to Almira. Speak to Almira, give it to her, and you will be rewarded with 41,850XP along with a choice of Divine-quality loot. You can get another Swornbreaker later on in Arx, so it's not a huge issue, unless you would like 2 characters to wield both Swornbreakers.
Either way, upon giving it to Almira, she will promise to help you in the final fight, and the quest is complete at this point.
- 41,850XP and a choice of Divine-quality loot upon quest completion.
- You can reuse the same Swornbreaker to free both Windego and Almira. First give the Swornbreaker to Windego. After she uses it, loot the broken Swornbreaker from her corpse and take it to Almira. She will happily accept it and the quest is completed (it may require that you first try to repair it at a trader - which will fail - and then take it to Almira).
