Undercroft is a location in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Background[edit | edit source]

This is the lowest level of the inhabited parts of Neketaka, where the Principi and the Watershapers bring in cargo and other goods into the Gullet. This vast cavern contains more than just docks: It has an entire smugglers port!

Points of interest[edit | edit source]

  • You enter the area by way of a rickety elevator - and immediately as you enter, you are accosted by a pirate. If you aren't doing The Cornett's Call for Dereo, you will have to lie or fight. Otherwise, head on. You can take a shortcut by using the ropes in the center to get across to the other side (Athletics 4 gets everyone across safely).
  • The smuggler fort is in the northeast corner, with a skiff to the side that allows you to safely exit to Queen's Berth without having to backtrack. The upper floor has Captain Mad Morena, the head smuggler, and a locked chest in his chambers that contains Principi colors necessary for entering Fort Deadlight without triggering the alarm.
  • If you haven't got The Corenett's Call and bypassed the temple by way of the Old City Ruins (There's a secret latch on the Old City Ruin's side that opens the door.) Then you'll witness a cut-scene of the water shaper's changing the current to smuggle in goods and earn a comment from Serafen. ("A Sight an a half that be, cap. Damn near wets the eyes.")
    • There are two ways to escape without inciting the hostility of the pirate's and by virtue receive a significant strike to your reputation with the Principi.
      • 1st. Sneak through to the skiff on the west side of the fort without alarming any guards. You only need a single character of your team to reach it to be able to leave safely.
      • 2nd. Sneak into Mad Morena's quarters and reveal yourself. You can claim you're there seeking business opportunities. (?Requires 6 Streetwise and a 500cp Bribe?) She will then give you the Goods and Services quest and you will not be attacked by the pirates.
  • Gwenfin waits for you by the entrance to the Old City Ruins in the northwest. She'll head in once you approach.
  • In the southwest is a locked cage full of wild Boar. Unlocking the cage will cause the boars to attack.

Characters[edit | edit source]

Loot[edit | edit source]

  • A hidden Ruby, in a Wooden Post, on the end of the Main Docks.
  • Ring of Minor Protection, in a hidden rubble pile in the boar cage, along with some ingredients.
