The Higher-Ups is a quest in Beast of Winter.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Harbinger Brythe has asked the Watcher to take care of a problem facing the Rymrgand worshippers of Harbingers' Watch - the cultists that arrived at the Dead Floe before them. These pilgrims have set up camp above the Watch and attack anything they see.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • To access the Outcrop on High, you need to complete the first quest in the area, An Honored Guest, and receive Vatnir's icepicks. Then it's a simple matter of heading to the Outcrop, finding the pilgrims in the center, and wiping them out. Be sure to collect the Horns of the Aurochs before you leave!
  • Talk to Brythe. As it turns out, she didn't expect you to kill everyone, as befitting the Duskspeaker. She will reveal that she was hoping that she could be reconciled with her sister, Ehrys, who was always the surer and smarter of those two. Ydwin will comment on Brythe afterwards, noting that she thinks herself half as clever as she is - and doesn't understand how much cleverer she will have to be.

0 The Higher-Ups
10000 Harbinger Brythe has asked me to take care of a problem facing the Rymrgand worshippers of Harbingers' Watch - the cultists that arrived at the Dead Floe before them. These pilgrims have set up camp above the Watch and attack anything they see.
1 Defeat the pilgrims at Outcrop on High.
10001 Hostile pilgrims have established a camp between Harbingers' Watch and Rymrgand's temple. I'll need to defeat them if I'm to secure the Watch's safety - or a safe path to the Vytmádh.
20000 I stand little chance of making the climb to Outcrop on High without specialized equipment. The High Harbinger may have something that will help me make the ascent.
20001 I acquired ice picks from Vatnir.
2 Speak with Brythe at Harbingers' Dwelling.
10002 I should let Brythe know that the pilgrims are no longer a threat. She's likely in the ice fishing grotto in Harbingers' Watch.
End states
Yes 30000 I killed the fanatical pilgrims at Outcrop on High.
