Villain Dialogue Options
To get the Villain tag, you have to do more evil (not just bad, mass-stealing or not helping people will not contribute) than good deeds. It is easiest to get during Act 1/Fort Joy, assuming you were not nice on the boat (don't choose nice dialogue options or save the Origin characters), due to so few past actions to define you.
Doing just one of the below options will not get you the tag; it has to be a combination of things.
- Leave your future companions in ship's hold in Prologue
- Enslave Lady Vengeance
- Tell Unnis (camp in hidden alcove) you were sent fy Atusa to get all the supplies
- Reveal Stingtail as the orange thief to Griff
- Support Loshe's diabolism and help her to kill Saheila
- Decide to break Gratiana's soul jar while speaking to her in Amadia's Sanctuary
- Find the Ice Dragon in the Fort Joy island and refuse to give him Radeka's Purging Wand and kill him
- Kill Hannag's apprentice and his family
- Kill the man being assaulted by magisters in the Blackpits by refusing to make him leave
- Betray Ryker as you are about to complete his quest and kill him
- Urge Gareth to kill Magister Jonathan in the abandoned house
- Find the frightened Dwarf near the Blackpits then choose the dialogue option: "Hurt her."
- Consume a large ammount of souls (specifically animal and innocent spirits) via dialogue
- Release Death Fog in Arx
Getting the tag
There is a way to easily get Villain tag in first 20-30 minutes when starting a new game.
Important note: since Unnis hates humans, you character must have a non-human race for success. Otherwise, I suppose you are to kill Vendigo and loot Mask of the Shapeshifter first.
- In the end of Prologue, do not help you companions in ship's hold. Just use the boat once you get to it
- When you enter Act I, you will need to speak with an elf woman - Unnis. You can find her in the camp on the hill right behind Fane in hidden alcove
- In the dialogue she will tell you she is waiting news from magister Atusa. Choose a "bad" dialog option and tell her you were sent by Atusa to get all the supplies
You will immediately get a Villain tag.
