A Vote of No Confidence is a faction quest in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Lueva Alvari has called together a meeting of the Vailian Trading Company's key investors, demanding Director Castol's removal from his post. The Canta Nicese will want to hear from those involved in Director Castol's recent operations. That means the Watcher.

Alvari asks the Watcher to join the council meeting in the director's chambers on the upper floor of the Vailian Trading Company headquarters.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Speak to Lueva Alvari, who wants to enlist you to help her replace Director Castol in a corporate coup.

Go to the upper floor to start the meeting of the Songretta mea Compresa, the company's board of shareholders, which includes Nirro, Canta Nicese, Duc Remasi Storanzo me Selona, Osgara Rafendr, Erla of Norwaech, Príncipo Tarvisi Vadremino III me Revua, Albina Carnetto, and an archmage.

Your testimony will decide whether Castol or Alvari comes out on top. The numbers don't work out in the Director's favor yet and Lueva is pouncing on that fact as hard as possible. You can contradict her:

  • When she mentions Poko Kohara and you restored the pillar, you can point out that the investment of men and resources did produce a usable vein.
  • She will malign Castol's investment in animancy research. You can offer a counterpoint, that the research is promising and could give the VTC tremendous power in time, help reach Ukaizo, or that the experiments simply worked. Tarvisi will express great interest in the research and you can use Bluff/Insight/History 6 to point out the practical applications.
  • Finally, you can ask Pallegina to intercede on behalf of the preferred company head.

Whoever prevails then enlists you to blow up the Royal Deadfire Company Powder House. If Maia is in your party, you must decide whether to continue to go along with the Vailian Trading Company's plans, in which case Maia leaves your party, or to decline the quest, ruling out the Vailian Trading Company as an ally.
