A Sinking Feeling is a quest in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Ezzali Bardatto asked the Watcher to seek out information regarding a Valera plot against her. She suggested the Watcher start with Zili, a more easygoing member of the Valera family.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • After Salt in the Wound, head to the Bardatto estate and talk to Ezzali Bardatto. Talk to her and she will reveal that there are rumors of a Valera plot against her family. She will ask that you go and interrogate Zili Valera by the watchtowers to learn of the plans. Talk to him and he will tell you to find Persa in The Hole.
  • Head to the Hole, in the Gullet district of Neketaka. Persa is standing in the store room with Baer. You can eavesdrop on them in stealth mode. If they notice you, Persa will immediately question your presence. You can use Bluff 2 and Might to get out (but this will not advance the quest). Use Perception 16/Insight 3 to identify Baer as a Bardatto guard and you'll have to fight the whole group.
  • Once you have the information, return to Ezzali.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • If you have been caught by Persa once already but talked your way out of a fight, the trigger for being caught the second time doesn't disappear even after the quest has concluded and the conspirators are no longer at the Hole. This causes forced dialogue with the now-absent Baer, but doesn't appear to cause any other issues.

ID Objectives
0 A Sinking Feeling
10000 Ezzali Bardatto is convinced that the Valera family is planning to make a move against her.
1 Find Zili Valera.
10001 Ezzali Bardatto asked me to seek out information regarding a Valera plot against her. She suggested I start with Zili, a more easygoing member of the Valera family.
20003 Ezzali said that Zili Valera plays his lute around one of the local watch towers.
20004 Zili Valera has been killed.
2 Find Persa.
10002 Zili's pointed me toward his cousin, Persa, who frequents a tavern known as The Hole down in the Gullet.
20004 Zili Valera has been killed.
3 Return to Ezzali.
10003 I think I've found all the information I'm going to. Hopefully that's enough for Ezzali.
20000 I got rid of Persa. That might help in future.
End states
No 30000 Someone critical to the completion of this quest has been killed.
Yes 30001 I got Ezzali the information she wanted, and she paid me well for it.
Yes 30002 I got a little carried away while hunting down information for Ezzali. I don't think she'll be asking me for help again anytime soon.
Yes 30003 I told Ezzali about the plan to rob her vault. However, I told her I didn't think destroying the Valera family was the right response. I'll need to work fast if I'm going to convince anyone of that.
Yes 30004 I told Ezzali about the plan to rob her vault. She's eager to turn the tables on the thieves. Looks like things are going to get bloody in a hurry.
Yes 30005 With the feud resolved, Ezzali has no use for this information.
Yes 30007 The Valera family has already put their plan in motion- and it doesn't seem to be going very well. I decided to help the Valeras clean up their mess.
