The Secrets of Bloodmoon Island is a Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II. Entering Bloodmoon Island, there is blood everywhere and carnage. What secrets do this island hold?
- Learn how the Black Ring attempted to get past the Death Fog that surrounds Bloodmoon Island.
- Speak to the Advocate.
- Find the entrance to the Archive.
- Discover and awaken the Ancestor Tree's spirit, Eleanessa.
- Tell Jahan the name of the Arch-demon, Adramahlikh.
This quest can be acquired after learning about the Black Ring's attempt to get past the death fog surrounding Bloodmoon Island. Information can be found on Black Ring corpses on the island. After entering Bloodmoon Island, go to the place listed in the picture below; it is the entrance to the Archives. You will need at least 22 wits to spot the dirt mound. If you don't have enough wits, Peace of Mind can assist you.
Once inside the Archives, you will immediately gain 50,575XP. You can also cast Spirit Vision and speak to the spirit of the Archivist here. No matter what dialogue option you pick, you will gain 14,450XP. Search around the Archives for the Archivist's Journal and read it to find out the name of the Ancestor Tree is Eleanessa.
Walk forward and you will find that the wall ahead is actually a hidden door (you will need some wits to spot it). Pick up the Unusual Blade here for 50,000XP. If you interact with it as a Lizard, you will be able to understand the blade's words. There is also a locked Tenebrium chest here that will sap 1 Source Point from your character with every interaction. If you lockpick it, you will find a Green Teleporter Pyramid inside the chest. Note that merely left-clicking the chest to interact with it will only drain a Source point and produce a remark from your character.
Secret: There is actually a chest hidden in the map which you can teleport out to loot. If you refer to the screenshot below, you will see exactly what orientation the camera needs to be in order to successfully select the chest. Apportation can also help with this, as it can be quite difficult to pinpoint the exact spot needed to teleport the chest.
The Ancestor Tree can be located at the center of Bloodmoon Island, but it is surrounded by Black Ring magisters who will attack you on sight if you do not pass the speech check. Going too close to the tree will cause them to attack. It is recommended to start The Advocate quest and kill them all for massive amounts of XP.
If you haven't killed The Advocate yet, he will not let you speak to the tree, so you will probably have to kill him too. Killing him is also part of the quest, "A Hunter of Wicked Things", so doing this in conjunction with this quest is, obviously, recommended.
Kill The Advocate, and cast Spirit Vision in order to speak with the Ancestor Tree. Invoke its name (Eleanessa) and it will begin speaking with you in earnest, thanking you for easing its pain. You will gain 66200XP for invoking the name of the tree. The tree then asks you to kill Doctor Daeva, who is possessed by a powerful Arch-demon called Adramahlikh (this quest starts another: Doctor's Orders).
After you speak with the Tree, return to the Spirit of an Elven Pilgrim (x194,y413) and tell him you know the name of the tree. You will receive XP for closing this quest ("The Druid").
This quest will close upon going to the square in Arx after defeating the doctor.
