  4. Meet Izzara at the Spell Key.
  5. Unbind the prisoners.
  6. Find Adeena.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

When choosing between Izzara or Adeena to live, the choice is yours. If you choose Adeena to live: You have chosen wisely. Adeena is actually an innocent in all of this, Izzara the one possessed. However, as they are twins, the blood is still enough to complete the ritual. If you choose Izzara to live: You choose the one that is actually possessed to live. After talking to the sister that lived, you must go kill Anexiel before it can do any more damage. It did, after all, promise to claim its body first and foremost.

Enter Anexial's lair through the door close by. As soon as you have killed Anexial, Mephala, the Lady of Whispers, appears. Talk to Mephala and find out that the entire thing was a simple play filled with death, a broken marriage, and other things, nothing more. Anexial succeeded in its little bit of fun. Once you exit the lair, talk to the remaining sister and return with her to Najan.



  • When you approach Adeena for the first time Izzara may not appear making it impossible to talk to her and advance the quest. Relogging may fix this.
