A Parting Gift (quest walkthrough)

A Parting Gift (quest walkthrough)

Starting from the Abbey (west of Gran Soren), speak with sister Clarus and proceed to the Catacombs southern-most entrance (Rear Passage 1) near Gran Soren's north gate. Escort Quina to the Pilgrim's Charm in the nearby chest and bring it back to sister Clarus in the Abbey to complete the quest.

To begin the quest, speak to Clarus at The Abbey in the Wilted Forest; she will mention that Quina will be departing for Auldring's Grand Cathedral on the Mainland and requests the Arisen acquire a Pilgrim's Charm from the Catacombs to give to her before she leaves.

Clarus notes that Pilgrim's Charms can be purchased in Gran Soren at high cost, but would prefer one personally collected by someone Quina knows.

If the Arisen has a Pilgrim's Charm already in their personal inventory, it can be presented immediately to Clarus to complete the quest, but the rewards will be lesser.

Enter the Catacombs

To experience the entirety of this quest, head to the Catacombs, and seek Quina.

Quina will be found close to the ladder leading out from the southernmost entrance (Catacombs Rear Passage 1), which is the one accessed by entering a trap door just within the ruined walls outside of Gran Soren.

On meeting Quina she will seek the Arisen's support in her decision to travel to Auldring. Withholding support will disappoint Quina, and she will immediately return to the Abbey. Quina will accompany the party in the Catacombs if her decision is supported.  

Explore the Catacombs, seeking a Pilgrim's Charm. One can be found a short way in, in the first large chamber within a chest on the right, guarded by a Specter. Quina carries a staff and is able to defend herself, is capable of  supporting the party, and can even defeat the ghost by herself.

Collect the Pilgrim's Charm, return to the Abbey and gift the charm to Clarus for the quest rewards.


  • If the Pilgrim's Charm was acquired within the Catacombs with Quina, the quest awards more Experience Points and 10 Ne'er-Do-Part flowers.
  • If the Pilgrim's Charm was acquired within the Catacombs, before or without meeting with Quina; or if it was bought or obtained elsewhere only 5 Ne'er-Do-Parts will be rewarded.



"Quina, was it? Seems the girl's taken with the idea of training at the Grand Cathedral. We're mates, you and I, mm? Well, per'aps I'll take the girl there myself. Don't look so worried, friend. Heh heh..."
"I have no doubt Quin's desire to visit the Grand Cathedral owes much to your role as Arisen. Acolytes of the Faith have long studied the dragon there; doubtless she hopes to discover some means to aid you. Some call it foly to attempt the long journey to the mainland with the dragon about, but I disagree. Knowledge is the light on our path to conquering this evil -- it must never be abandoned. "
"I feel I must go...both for your sake and my own. In my heart of hearts, I always knew you would suport me. Is that not why you help Sister Clarus gather items for a blessing? Yes, I heard. But please, do not let slip that I know. She does so love her little surprises. I do wish you would stay close. Shall we?"
"Truly...? If you feel so, why help Sister Clarus hunt items for my journey? Don't look so dumbfounded. You never were skilled at hiding things away from me.All my days, whatever my troubles, you were ever quick to offer me aid... I seek only to do the same.I'd best be off -- I've preparations to make ere I depart. Unltill we meet at the abbey, then."

Pawn Chatter

"Buy it with coin in the markets, or with steel in the catacombs; 'tis your choice."
"Shall we scour the catacombs, then? Or simply purchase it?"
"The Mother Superior awaits us, and Quina's gift as well."


  • This quest does not initiate immediately after completing Talent in Bloom, however it is convenient to undertake this quest subsequent to Talent In Bloom. In order to initiate A Parting Gift the area must be departed and then returned; this can be done easily by entering and exiting the nearby Riftstone. This solution may not always work.
  • It is necessary to have explored the Catacombs prior to this quest in order to have broken the wooden bar on the other side of the door to gain access from the Catacombs' southeasternmost entrance.
  • On having collected the Pilgrim's Charm, Clarus may not be found at the Abbey if the quest is rapidly completed.  Waiting or entering a Riftstone may cause sufficient time to pass in order for her to reappear.
  • To fully complete the quest by going to the Catacombs, avoid retrieving, buying or picking up any Pilgrim's Charms elsewhere after this quest was initiated. Acquiring any Pilgrim's Charm other than the one in the Catacombs prior to quest completion will remove Quina from The Catacombs.
  • Quina's skill as a mage during her time at the Abbey is much improved since her visit to the Witchwood.
