Detailed WalkthroughEdit

The Dominion and Heritance come to a head on the high seas!

Talk to Captain Jimila when you are ready to go after Vicereeve Pelidil. This will cause the Prowler to set sail, and you wake up in the lower decks.

Under AttackEdit

Vanquish Pelidil and put an end to the Heritance for good

The Maormer are attempting to board the ship. You need to fight them off while avoiding fire from the enemy ship's cannonballs.

A sea serpent will approach the ship after you defeat the first batch of Sea Vipers. You need to shoot it with the ballistae on the deck four times. The serpent appears at the northeast ballista, the northwest ballista, the southeast ballista (where it may dodge your attack the first time), then alternate between the southwest and southeast. You should note there is no ballista in the southwestern area. There will be a constant influx of Sea Vipers during the fight, while you try to find time to take shots with the ballista, so you'll have to kill a couple more between each shot.

Once the serpent is defeated, you will have to repel more Maormer boarders. Two portals appear on deck at this time. Kill the boarders, and your own mages will take control of the portals before they can be closed, so you can use them to board the Maormer ship.

After all the boarders have been defeated, you need to enter the portal at the north end of the deck to kill Vicereeve Pelidil. Unfortunately, Pelidil does not have the Staff of Magnus, it has been taken by the lich-shade of Prince Naemon - whom Pelidil still follows, despite the fact that he could not actually control the undead prince. Far from being dismayed by this, he will brag of it and refer to Naemon as the true king, during the fight. Kill him and his last few soldiers, then step back through the portal to the Prowler.

Return to the ProwlerEdit

Having returned to the Prowler, talk to Jimila to return to port, also receiving your rewards of a skill point and the one-handed "Sargasso's Curse" sword (technically part of the "Beekeeper's Gear" set).

The next quest does not start immediately upon finishing talking to Jimila. However, Major Cirenwe will be visible after you've walked a few paces off the ship, to begin the next quest stage by sending you to Marbruk with a sealed letter detailing the recent events.


  • If you jump in the water, the sea serpent will one-hit kill you after a few seconds of being near it. Otherwise, if you jump on the side where the sea serpent isn't, you will quickly be killed by slaughterfish.
  • The sea serpent's poison spit attack inflicts very minimal damage if it hits you.
  • The two Dominion mages on board the Prowler will heal you if your health starts to get lower.
  • The Prowler Crew Member that occasionally speaks as seen in the subtitles cannot be seen aboard the ship.


  • The option to return to Greenshade via Captain Jimila is bugged. Upon arriving back to Seaside Sanctuary, the screen will fade to black right away and you will be forced back to the Abecean Sea. This means you have to either complete the quest to return or use a wayshrine. ?
  • During the 0/3 ballista objective, invading Sea Vipers will stand idle on the edge of the ship, invulnerable to attacks, for a few seconds before starting to attack you. ?
  • The Sea Vipers ship can still be seen launching fireballs at the Prowler even after Pelidil and the Sea Vipers aboard have been defeated. ?

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
