Bleak Oath is a task in Pillars of Eternity: The White March - Part II.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Angry and more than a little drunk, a Stalwart villager by the name of Kern managed to inadvertently hire a Bleak Walker paladin to resolve a long-standing feud. The matter has now escalated beyond his control.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  1. Start the White March Part II story-line.
  2. Talk to Kern in the Gréf's Rest in Stalwart Village.
  3. Read the spirit in Haddi's house in Whitestone Hollow to learn about Kern's son Eska in Dyrford Village.
  4. Deal with Cevestin in the mill in Dyrford Village before he kills Eska.
    • If you have 18 Resolve or (Bleak Walker Paladin and either (3 Cruel Disposition or 3 Aggressive Disposition or 3 Stoic Disposition)) you can convince the Bleak Walker paladins to kill Cevestin for you and let Eska go, you will be able to hire them later at your stronghold (-2 Prestige +6 Security). There's also a 14 Intellect check if you don't meet the disposition checks, but I think you still need to be a Bleak Walker (not sure). For the 18 Resolve dialog path, one successful outcome looks like:
      • "Contract?"
      • "That's a flimsy justification for muder."
      • "These sadistic games are beneath your order."
      • "I know a thing or two about getting into castles" (if you've defeated Concelhaut). There's also other dialog options here if you've defeated various dragons, or have a mercenary background.
      • "You snatched the opportunity to frighten a drunk man into believing he was to blame."
      • "Give up now, Cevestin" (requires Resolve 18)
  5. Report back to Kern.
