A Distant Light Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Quest

Group: The Hunt for Eothas

Start location: Neketaka

I learned that Eothas has been spotted near Hasongo, an island with a Rauataian outpost and an adra lighthouse. Hasongo can be found to the west of Neketaka.

I may be able to connect to him through the beacon.

Note: Currently, this page contains raw quest data only. I know that it is not much, and I will try to update it with more valuable information as soon as possible.

Alternate descriptions:

I've reached Hasongo, now the site of a ruined fort. It appears as though Eothas marched through it.

If I can find luminous adra here, I can connect to Eothas again.

Quest stages of A Distant Light

1. Sail to Hasongo.

Eothas was last sighted near Hasongo, an island northwest of Neketaka.

2. Reach the adra lighthouse on the western end of the fort.

The Royal Deadfire Company built a lighthouse around luminous adra. Perhaps that's what Eothas was headed toward when I connected to him at Port Maje.

If I can reach the lighthouse, I might be able to speak to Eothas again.


The adra lighthouse is on the western end of the fort.

I spotted some nāga lurking in the middle of the fort. There might be a way around them.

Zuhira mentioned that there might be an intact bombard along one of the outer walls.

I found a bombard atop the fort's walls. I might be able to use it against the nāga.

I'll need ammunition before I can use the bombard.

Zuhira told me someone named Aimuro was making explosive shells for the bombard. His workshop is near the northern gate.

I found an explosive shell for the bombard.

The bombard is rusted stuck. I'll need something to lubricate it before I can aim it.

I found some cooking fat that might loosen up the rusted gears.

I turned the bombard to face the group of nāga in the middle of the fort.

I've dealt with the large group of nāga in the middle of the fort.

Aimuro mentioned two alternate routes to the lighthouse. The first lies atop the fort's walls, while the second passes above the workshop and through the fleet master's office.

One of the soldiers warned me that nāga may ambush me if I get close to the water.

I found a manual that will help me aim the bombard properly.

3. Connect with the luminous adra in the lighthouse.

The adra vein in the lighthouse has gone dark - a sure sign that Eothas drained it. I should be able to reach Eothas by making contact with the adra.

However, a nāga named Sugaan bars the way.


Sugaan thinks the gods are punishing kith for disturbing their adra. That explains why he won't let me near it.

Sugaan let me leave, but he warned me not to return.

Sugaan let me leave, but he warned me not to return. Not unless I bring one of his dead to corroborate my story.

I found the soul of a nāga that witnessed Eothas' draining of the adra. Perhaps this will convince Sugaan.

I killed Sugaan.

Sugaan has allowed me to approach the adra.

4. Find the luminous adra on Hasongo.

I've reached an island called Hasongo, and it's clear Eothas has been here, too.

If I can find a source of luminous adra, I can connect to him again.

5. Other updates

Before I set sail for Hasongo, I need to find someone to repair my ship. I should look around the docks in Queen's Berth.

6. Endings

I connected with Eothas at the lighthouse in Hasongo. He didn't tell me what he's doing - only to seek him at Magran's Teeth.

After completing A Distant Light you will get or will be able to get He Waits in Fire.
