Magran's Fires are optional challenges you can select when starting a new game in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire (by clicking the head at the bottom of the main menu). These generally make the game more difficult and are aimed at veteran players or those looking to replicate the achievement-related challenges found in Pillars of Eternity and The White March - Part I + The White March - Part II.

Eothas' challenge dates[edit | edit source]
During Eothas' challenge, the player must complete the following quests before specific dates. These are always a set amount of days from the start of the game, noting that Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire begins on the 18th of Mid Spring (Majprima), 2828 AI, at hour 6/7. To assist, a timer is shown in the top right of the screen, and the date of completion is shown in the journal. The hour of completion is always hour 6.
|Quest||Days to complete||Completion date|
|To Hunt a God||5 days||3 Deep Spring (Fonprima), 2828 AI|
|The Veins of Eora||30 days||8 Late Spring (Tarprima), 2828 AI|

Rymrgand's challenge spoil times[edit | edit source]
Food and drink items spoil after a certain amount of time (after being added to the stash). Keep in mind that 1 day in-game is 27 hours, and that the game speed is 24x real time (1 hour in-game takes 2.5 minutes in real time).

The Ultimate[edit | edit source]
The Ultimate challenge was added in patch 6.1 (5.0.0.0040). It enables all other God Challenges, Trial of Iron, Path of the Damned, and Solo mode all at once, making the game extremely difficult. As with the other challenges, it also disables console commands/cheats, and mods. The challenge and its objectives are tracked with a quest that is added to the journal upon starting a new game. The challenge itself involves killing a number of Mega Bosses and powerful enemies encountered throughout the course of the game and its expansions.
Being one of the first 12 players to complete the challenge it would earn the player a spot on The Ultimate "Roll of Honor", a physical plaque in Obsidian's studio lobby that would immortalize their achievement. In addition, the first 50 players would be sent a special Josh Sawyer patch to celebrate.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The timing on Berath's Challenge used to be 6 seconds before the party member was killed. This was extended to 10 seconds in a later patch.
- In the Solo challenge, recruited companions/sidekicks will still be present on your ship and will participate in boarding-party fights. However, they will all be level 1 (because the game doesn't level them up until the first time they join the active party, which they can't do), making them not very helpful.
