To my fellow gamers!

This is a walkthrough I have created for Divinity - Original Sin. It is quite thorough and should contain solutions to every quest and puzzle in the game. I have put approximately 500 hours into making it and have to admit I am quite pleased with the result. I use it actively myself in my playthroughs and I wanted to share it with all of you now that it is finished. Hopefully you will find it useful too. I had quite a lot of fun creating this walkthrough and playing the game. The walkthrough is also a tribute to Larian Studios who created such a wonderful game.

The walkthrough is created primarily to be easy to use as a reference guide. All references to other parts in the document are hyperlinks that you can click on to jump to them. This goes for the contents as well.

Here are a couple of pictures from the walkthrough:

Enjoy!

I have upgraded the walkthrough (now version 1.1) to version 219 of the game, and fixed a few errors.

Enjoy!

Wahou ! That's the first word that came to my mind when I saw and read this. You did an awesome job. Thanks for that.

Though this is a fantastic document I would suggest anyone to not read it until you are desperately lost because it will break the magic of this fantastic game (I just read one clue about how to open the shield door to the treasure room in Hiberheim castle because, for who knows what reason, I did want to find the well teleportation scroll and I was upset to not find how to open the door - and I has been a bit ashamed of myself when I read the solution that was so easy).

Thanks again for writing this (I just can't imagine the amount of work, and try and retry, you put into it).

And of course thanks to Larian for doing such a great game.

This is a fantastic guide. I really appreciate the hypertext in the index because it makes finding specific quests so easy. You deserve a whole bunch of recognition and gratitude for the amount of effort you obviously have put into the guide. Thanks so much for sharing. thankyou

The link to download the pdf file does not work anymore. Apparently Dropbox does not allow unlimited downloads from a free account. Does anybody know of a free file sharing site that does?

I have made a temporary solution by changing to another site, but they have a bandwidth limit as well. Since the dropbox link do not work at all this temporary link will have to do for now. The first post is updated to include the new link.

Thanks to Raze the pdf file can now be downloaded directly from a server at Larian Studios. This is a good, permanent, and stable solution that does not depend on the policy of different file sharing providers. The link in the first post is updated.

As a brand new player, this guide is incredible. Definitely has helped me get back into the groove of things. Been way too long since a great crpg. Normally I'd prefer to discover all this on my own, as I did with Icewind Dale, but my time has become limited over the years.

Thanks for creating the guide. I needed to use it a few times to complete the game... but why on earth did you arrange it in alphabetical order?

Chronological would have been INFINTELY better, and much less likely to have players accidentally spoil themselves. I mean, you have placed the final main quest of the game smack-in between "The Teleporter Stones" and "The Star Stones", which are among the very FIRST quests of the game. How does that make any sense? It does not.

True, but how would you sort them? There are a lot of quests that can be taken in any order. I failed to find a chronological order I was satisfied with, and also, I didn't want to decide in which order the quests should be performed. So I decided to collect them by maps and sort them alphabetically within each map. I do agree that the end mission of the Homestead map is a bit misplaced. I could have put that one in the end of the walkthrough even if it kind of belongs to the Homestead map.

I'd sort them roughly by order of visit, as suggested by the level of enemies in the area. There's a pretty clear progression based on the enemy levels. The general order of the locations (going from my memory) is:

starter beach -> Cyseal harbour -> Cyseal city -> Homestead (first visits) -> West Cyseal -> northwest cyseal -> Black Cove -> Fire area -> Villa -> Old Church

Then it would be Silverglen and Environs -> White Witch's Cabin -> Hiberheim -> Luculla Mines -> Immaculate Initiation Temple -> Sacred Stone -> High Plains

Certainly some things can be done in different orders, and there's always flexibility with how things could be arranged. I'm not expecting you to change the FAQ... but that's about how I would have arranged it.

Amazingly detailed guide and you have done a great job in linking all the characters and items in there as well.

Purely cosmetic suggestion but it would be great if someone could make a cover page as awesome as the guide itself. And perhaps put in some Creative Commons license in there.

Thanks for the great resource that you have created.

One small addition:

In Cecil's Mighty Staff --> I could get +50 attitude from Conrad after I delivered the staff to Cecil, just had to talk to him about Dietmar.
