Pride Before a Fall Walkthrough

  • Travel to the southernmost part of Klurikon, towards the quest marker.

  • Speak with Agarth and after a brief conversation, Ventrinio and Alyn Shir arrive. Ventrinio will tell you about Callis Dren, guardian of the House of Pride and defender of the entrance into Alabastra. Dren has a powerful enchantment that renders him impervious to all attacks but Ventrinio has found a way to get past him. He grants you the Essence of Valor, which will protect you from Dren's attacks.pride_before_a_fall_dren_koa_wiki_guide

  • Find Dren at the steps leading up to the House of Pride. After a brief conversation, a fight begins. After a moment, it becomes obvious that neither one of you can harm the other and Dren proposes an agreement. He will forfeit his blessing and grant you a fair duel if you do the same and promise to liberate the House of Pride. There are a couple of Persuasion checks here, but neither one affects the outcome other than Dren's dialogue. 

  • The real fight begins. Dren fights much like Witch Knight Malwyn and will utilize a lot of sword strikes and spells. Be wary of his medium-distance teleport where he leaves fire runes at his starting point and destination. They explode based on proximity. He will periodically blow on his horn to buff himself, indicated by a red aura. This increases his attack damage and grants him access to the Tornado spell. Unlike Malwyn, his attacks can be interrupted at any time.

  • After defeating Dren, Agarth will come running over and you will be tasked with killing Witch Knight Myrna in the House of Pride and destroying the Tuatha within.

  • Head inside and engage the Tuatha Soldiers. You will have three allies in the form of Faeblade-wielding soldiers, but don't rely on them too much as they can die easily.

  • Make your way past the various rooms and enemies. There is one Bolgan in one of the rooms. Eventually, you will run into the Knave of Pride, who promises to support you once Myrna is dead and the Prismere Chantry destroyed.

  • Past the Knave, the fight with Myrna will commence. She's not particularly difficult but watch out for the Faer Gorta she summons. Myrna herself is easily put into stunlocks and should not put up much of a fight.

  • Once she is dead, continue forward to the Chantry. Defeat the two Tuatha guards then destroy the chantry and you'll have another brief conversation with Gadflow.pride_before_a_fall_chantry_koa_wiki_guide

  • Return to the Knave of Pride to finish the quest and receive Twist of Fate - Unstoppable Force.

  • Leave the House of Pride and continue on south to enter Alabastra.
