Captain Aurelius asked me to kill Svadilfari, the leader of the local Red Hammer tribe. He has been causing much trouble lately and the Champions want it to stop. If I can do it, I'll be a coffer-full of gold pieces richer!

A Shaman's Ransom is a side quest given by Aurelius at Champion Harbour in Divinity II: Ego Draconis.

Quick walkthrough[]

Detailed Walkthrough[]

Aurelius asks you to bring him the head of a notorious goblin chief named Svadilfari. Completing this quest will not cause the Champions to turn hostile and Talana will remark how one has "a novel way of giving head".

Upon speaking to Svadilfari, The Dragon Knight is given the option take up the goblins offer of killing Aurelius; this offer must be accepted at this stage to be able to continue, otherwise ones only choice is to defeat the imp, regardless of if the quest Death of a Champion has been taken.

Travel to the Champion Harbour's interior and kill Aurelius as requested and return Svadilfari, who in turn will attempt to kill the Dragon Knight. Once his health has been severely diminished, Svadilfari will abandon the cave and take flight outside. The knight must change to dragon form and finish the goblin off before the quest can be completed.
