Outcast's Respite is a location in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Background[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Deep in the bog you find a cave entrance obscured by vines. The bog's characteristic rot wafts from the cave, but so, too, does a strangely alchemical smell.

As you brush aside the vines and step inside the cave, you hear the faint sound of laughter coming from further in.

This remote cave is used as shelter by one Bipara, a bog witch.

Points of interest[edit | edit source]

  • A small location, with an entrance corridor and the main hut occupied by the witches. You can drink from the purple pond for a temporary boon (Alchemic Wits/Guile/Brawn). Bipara drops the Cauldron Shard.
  • As you enter, a bunch of Bog oozes will emerge. It's best to hang back until they appear, and then fight them around the entrance so you don't draw the attention of the other enemies.
  • Examining the purple pool (named the Disgard Pool on the map), you surmise that is is made up of several distinct liquids. Drinking from the pool will give you one of three boons, but also has the chance of giving you an injury. You are able to drink as many times as you please.
    • Getting all 3 is risky as the pool can also give you Major Injuries which can lead to the player character dying.
    • Getting the same bonus or affliction twice will usually replace the previous instance, instead of doubling up. There is a chance of it giving a major injury, instead.
    • Be cautious saving while under any effects from the pool, as at the moment this can lead to some rather unfortunate side effects and loss of gear.
  • Careful about starting combat in the witches hideout, as the door and the wooden walkway to it is a choke point, making it difficult to get party members through (although you can use this to your advantage). Luring the enemies out towards the entrance is probably a better idea.
  • Tama Watua is locked in the back. You can free him with the Witches' Key, dropped by Bipara. After being freed, he takes up residence.
    • Finding the Encoded notes before freeing Tama Watua allows you to and ask for a reward and get the Deciphered notes (or you can decipher them yourself). It allows to brew in the purple cauldron a potion (depending on the ingredients you have) giving you a permanent +1 to one attribute of your choice. See Deciphered notes for more information.
