The Drowner Contract

The Church of the Eternal Fire seeks individuals capable of dealing with the drowners at the riverbank. Payment is contingent on supplying proof of killing three of the beasts. Bring their brains. Inquire with the Reverend.


Drowner brain Drowner brain Drowner brain

Drowners are always easy prey. They are very susceptible to stun attempts, so use your Aard sign often. If you wear a red ribbon Talisman (which can be bought from Abigail) they will not attack at all, but you will have to chase them around to kill them. Talk to the Reverend to collect your reward after you have collected three drowner brains.


  • This quest can only be completed if the bestiary contains an entry about drowners, as Drowner remains will not contain their brains otherwise.
  • You can get the Drowner entry by:
    • Reading the Swamp Monsters book.
    • Investing a Bronze Talent in Monster Lore under Intelligence.
    • Giving food to an "Old townswoman" in the main village area.


Drowner Brains[]

The Church of the Eternal Fire has offered a reward for killing drowners. The brains of the monsters must be presented as proof of their demise. I need to collect three drowner brains for the Reverend.


I've collected enough drowner brains. Time to find a priest of the Eternal Fire. I should see the Reverend and collect my reward.


I delivered the drowner brains. Job done. I received my reward for the drowner brains. (100 Items Oren.png + 2000 XP)


I doubt I'll have another chance to complete this assignment. I lost my chance to collect that reward.
