If you need help with Alexander and the void worm. Try using teleport to grab alexander far away from his allies. Beat him until the voidworm arrives, then leave them to fight each other. Most of his allies should rush to aid him against the worm and they will all die. That's what I did on tactician difficulty. Also, it seems if you damage a target enough before the void worm takes them out, you can get experience. Sometimes he will thrash someone and you wont get any exp though. I got over 7k exp when Alexander died, though it wasn't clear if it was exp for killing him or just quest exp.
Hi everybody

1) i stole the wand from Radeka without killing her
2) i freed the dragon from stakles and gave him the purging wand, he became a Lizard and offered to help me later.
3) i destroyed myself 4 schriekers of 5 near alexander
3) i defeated Alexander without seeing the dragon (but with the help of Matis and another seeker who now are dead...)
4) i killed Radeka (now i was stronger and the fight was easier)
5) now "the purged dragon" quest say that i have saved the dragon but also that i have to pick up the wand from the dead body of the Witch, the same wand i already gave to Slane...

result: the quest remains open...
any advices ?
Make sure you pick up the wand off of Radeka's body
help him and you get 2100xp and some meh loot, kill him and you get 6000xp and a better loot.
Looks like there is more than one occurence when being an ****** is more rewarding in this game. It was the same with Pillars of Eternity. Although it's worse, since there is a time in the game when you can actually sacrifice (definitive death) one companion for attribute bonus.
I didn't kill him for roleplay purposes; it's supposed to be an rpg
I don't understand. Someone care to explain?
I don't know since which updates they changed it, but if you free Slane AFTER having killed every Shrieker in the area Slane will actually come but instead will give you a 50 turn Encouraged buff and also chill you for 6~7 turns from his presence. The journal also says: "Slane appeared and granted us a boon." (I also have screenshots if necessary)
It seems with at least definitive edition, slane wilkl leave comnbat if you try to attack him after to get his help and his loot. Guess you need to weigh up easy shrieker kills vs the xp and good loot. not a hard choice imo
Or just get both shrieker kills AND xp + good loot. Tried it with definitive edition and it still worked: 1. Give him the purging wand he wanted but don't press [end] 2. Attack him three times with a second character 3. Once he stands up and has an enemy outline, press [end] 4. He should reveal his lesser half. 5. Kill him for his loot after receiving quest exp 6. Watch him help you with the shriekers after you just killed him
I just gave him the wand, before I hit end I attacked him repeatedly. Switched back and hit end. He then transformed and I killed him for the loot and the 6k exp.
if you choose to kill the dragon, he moves around a lot, so open with a rupture tendons
So after I gave him the wand I stole it back and attacked him, the result was him attacking me in lizard form known as Slane the dragon knight. it was harder to kill him in this form than it was to kill him in dragon form..... idk if it will still give the achievement for slaying the dragon if you do this however, I was just messing around.... It totally breaks immersion for me because the Role play aspect but whatever.
Reminder: if you get the purging wand from Radeka the Witch you can use it at least 3 times before giving it to the dragon with no consequences. Including to clear the shriekers. I am unsure if using the last charge will have a negative effect as I didn't test it.
Just tested it myself, you can use up all 4 charges and it won't have any consequences when you hand the wand to Slane. I also tried to fight Slane while two Seekers from the Call to Arms quest followed me, in my case Matis and Samadel, but to my surprise they turned hostile towards me (however they were also hostile towards Slane) as soon as they fight was initiated.
How to get Quest XP, Killing Dragon XP + Loot(Quest reward loot is*****. Killing him loot is better) and Him help you kill all the shriekers After giving him the wand don't end the dialogue. Select another character and attack him until the dragon change posture. After that (Still keep the dialog on don't end it yet) select another character and go to the shriekers and the dragon will come and help u kill them. After this you can end the dialog and kill him.
