The Changing of the Guard is a side quest in Pillars of Eternity.

Note: Completing this quest allows you to get an invitation to the Animancy hearings from House Doemenel.

Warning: Accepting this quest means choosing House Doemenel as your faction in Defiance Bay, meaning you can no longer ally with nor perform quests for The Dozens or the Knights of the Crucible.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Speak with Gedmar Doemenel after completing A Two Story Job, and he'll request that you murder Marshal Wenfeld of the Knights of the Crucible, and place a token of The Dozens (which he puts in your inventory) on a nearby altar to frame them for the murder. Before you leave the manor, Abrecan Doemenel tells you not to place the token on the altar so that everyone knows who is responsible.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Go to the Crucible Keep in First Fires, and wait in the altar (east side of the building). Marshal Wenfeld will eventually stop by to pray, where you can then attack him. Marshal Wenfeld casts priest spells and wears heavy armor, but should be no issue for a full party. After you've killed Wenfeld, either place the Dozens token on the altar to frame The Dozens, or return to the manor without placing it.

Completing this quest gives The Watcher a bonus talent, The Merciless Hand. In addition, you get a favor from Gedmar (which can be chosen later). You can either choose money (he'll give you 10,000 cp), or a weapon (you'll get Misery's End).
