The Sealed Missive is a task in Pillars of Eternity.

A dying monk in Elmshore asks the player to deliver a sealed missive.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

A dying monk in Elmshore implores the Watcher to deliver a sealed missive to his compatriots at the Celestial Sapling.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  1. Find the dying monk in the top right of Elmshore, who is surrounded by two Stelgaers.
  2. Take the sealed missive from him. Decide to:
    • either put the unopened missive in your backpack.
    • break open the missive and read a hint to a secret stash.
    • with Dexterity 18, you can open the missive very, VERY carefully, read it and seal it again, so it can still be delivered as "unopened".
  3. Go to the monks in the Celestial Sapling in Heartsong:
    • if you give them an unopened letter, you will receive Aila Braccia (small shield) and Twin Elms: Minor Positive.
    • if you say you found nothing, they will be disappointed, the quest ends without any further effects (no items, no reputation change).
    • if you show the opened letter to the monks, they will attack you and you receive Twin Elms: Moderate Negative. You can loot Aila Braccia, a fine robe and approx. 200 Copper pands (cp) cash. With Intellect 18 or Perception 16, you can avoid that and receive Aila Braccia and Twin Elms: Minor Positive.
  4. Find the hidden stash in the upper left Glanfathan Home of Elms' Reach in sneaking mode, containing Starlit Garb. This is totally independent of the quest: You can find it if you have never taken the quest from the dying monk, you can find it if you read the scroll (broken open or carefully resealed) or if not, and before or after delivering the scroll to the monks in the inn.
  5. optional: You can kill the monks afterwards, without reputation change and noone else in the inn will become aggressive. You can loot Aila Braccia a second time (since this is a unique item, this can be seen as bug) as well as a fine robe and some 200 Copper pands (cp) cash. Also this allows to reach for the some 200 Copper pands (cp) in the cabinet behind them, which otherwise would be observed as stealing.
