The One That Got Away is a side quest and companion quest for Devil of Caroc in The White March - Part I.

Synopsis[edit]

The Devil of Caroc wants to find - and kill - a woodcutter named Harmke. She believes that he was directly responsible for the death of her family, but she wants to know for sure.

Walkthrough[edit]

  • The quest starts after visiting Stalwart Village with the Devil present in the party. After you try reading souls of the villagers she will confront you and ask for your help to find the one responsible for the death of her family. You will have to find woodcutter Harmke (just ask people in the village).
  • He can be found in Russetwood in Woodcutter's Grove with the rest of the woodcutters. Note that he and the other woodcutters will only appear if you have Devil of Caroc in your party. Confronting him will reveal that he indeed burned Devils house, along with her family. After reading his soul you can decide whether to turn him in to Devil, or lie and spare his life. If you choose to turn him in you will have to fight him, along the rest of the woodcutters. After the confrontation no matter what you chose to do, the quest will be completed.

ID Objectives
0 The One that Got Away
10000 I've met a strange new ally in the White March - a golem with the soul of a murderer. She asked to accompany me shortly after I met her and her "master."
Alternate descriptions
40001 The Devil of Caroc wants revenge on one of the men who destroyed her village. She believes he's somewhere near Stalwart.
1 Find Harmke.
10001 The Devil of Caroc wants to find - and kill - a woodcutter named Harmke. She believes that he was directly responsible for the death of her family, but she wants to know for sure.

She thinks I, as a Watcher, could find out.

First, we need to find him. Someone around Stalwart could probably tell us where he is.

20000 I refused to help her for now. Still, if we run into this Harmke, she may not wait for my aid.
20001 I told the Devil I'd help her locate Harmke. Still, I haven't made any promises about what we'll do when we find him.
20003 Someone told me that Harmke is working in a clearing in the Russetwood, west of town.
3 Keep an eye on the Devil of Caroc.
10003 The Devil of Caroc asked to travel with me... after I mentioned that I'm a Watcher and that I'm returning to the village where she was captured.

I'm not sure what she's after, but I'll be sure to keep a close watch on her.

20002 She denied killing anyone in Stalwart, but I'm not sure if I can trust her answer.
End states
No Devil died
30000 Someone critically important to this quest has died.
Yes Killed Harmke
30001 I looked into Harmke's soul and saw him torch the Devil of Caroc's house. I told her about it, and we killed him.
Yes Harmke already dead
30002 Harmke died before I could read his soul. The Devil of Caroc will never know if he was responsible for her family's fate.
Yes Spared Harmke
30003 I looked into Harmke's soul and saw his reluctance to burn the Devil of Caroc's house. I decided that he wasn't ultimately responsible and told her as much. She let him go.
