The Better Man is a quest/task in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

With a host of traders left stranded at Port Maje by the storm's destruction, there are no vacancies at the local tavern. However, Thorel, the tavernkeeper, is willing to put the Watcher up - if they clear out one of the current occupants. Thorel identified the lead culprit as Galian, a merchant captain. You can find him and his crew upstairs, in the room furthest to the back.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • Sounds simple enough. Head up the stairs and find Galian and his crew in the back room. Talk to him.
  • You can use Intimidate 2 to get him to clear out, or threaten him with guards or getting rough. When he decides to put up a fight, you can use Athletics 2 to punch him or Dexterity/Resolve/Constitution 13 to do the same. Sleight of Hand 2 allows you to stab him in the arm, though it does give you a Cruel reputation gain.
  • At any rate, this should get him out of the room peacefully. Return to Thorel for your reward.
