Divinity: Original Sin 2 is chock full of quests, locations, and secret places to explore, locate, and experience. One of these quests, Powerful Awakening, tasks players with finding a woman named Siva, and then making their way to the Hall of Echoes. In this article we’ll break down everything you need to know about the Powerful Awakening quest in Divinity: Original Sin 2, and go over every step of the journey to assist you as you try to complete it, and continue your journey to become a Divine in the game.
How to Start Powerful Awakening
Before you can complete a quest, you’re going to have to get it started, and starting up the quest Powerful Awakening isn’t going to be that tough. First, you’ll need to make your way back to Lady Vengeance. At one point in the story, you’ll be teleported back to this area, and you can speak with Malady. Upon speaking with Malady, the quest will begin, and you’ll be tasked with seeking out Siva, the Meistr of Seekers.
How to Free Siva
Finding Siva isn’t that hard, and all you’ll have to do is make your way to the outskirts of Driftwood, where you should find Siva being guarded by several magisters who have taken her hostage. You can persuade them to free her into your custody, however, if your attributes aren’t quite high enough, then you’ll need to force your way out of the situation by fighting the magisters. Once Siva is freed, she’ll ask you to visit her home in Driftwood. Make your way to this place and speak with Siva again to learn that she has a hidden button behind a painting in her bathroom.
Head to the bathroom, remove the painting, and press the button. At this point you’ll need to put in the code to Siva’s vault, which she should have supplied when you were speaking with her a few moments before. We’ve included the code below, so take a look at it and enter it within the game to continue.
Siva’s Vault Code: 15R, 34L, 23R, 35R, 9R, 16L, 33L, 45R, 51L, 1L.
Perform the Ritual
Inside of Siva’s vault you should find several teachings, which you can pick up. Grab the teachings, and then speak with Siva once more. She’ll provide you with a list of ingredients that you’ll need to acquire, as well as the location that she has stashed them. At this point, head to the closet that she marked near the Source Fountain, and then grab the ingredients and return to her.
Now it’s time to perform the ritual that Siva needs you to perform. Make sure you have the available Source Point and then use the blade (by right clicking it in your inventory) to cut yourself and combine the ingredients that you gathered, and then burn them to perform the ritual.
How to Increase Your Source Power
From here you’ll be teleported to the Hall of Echoes. Here you’ll speak with your god, and earn the Spirit Vision skill. At this point Siva we’ll once more instruct you to do something, this time tasking you with learning more about Source from other Source Masters. We’ve included a list of several that you can increase your Source knowledge by speaking to, so take a look at the list below to continue progressing forward in the story.
You can talk to Magister Bellworth about the powerful magisters in the area to grant yourself a large amount of experience.
You can also speak with the dwarven Sourcerer Mordus. Spare his life and he’ll teach you more about Source.
If you assisted Higba in the quest The Missing Magisters, then you can return to him and learn the location of Source Master Hannag, who can be found inside a ruin at Cloisterwood. Help Hannag deal with the other magisters around her, and she’ll tell you more about Source.
If you killed Roost in the sawmill and rescued Saheila, she will teach you more about Source. Be advised this can only be done through the Sebille or Ifan ben-Mezd personal quest.
You can also speak with Ryker, the lone wolf assassin at the Stonegarden Mansion to increase your Source Power, though you will need to help him with the quest A Generous Offer first.
Once you have increased your Source Power enough, you’ll need to return to Siva’s Vault with some Blackroot, and then continue the ritual. You’ll be teleported back to the Hall of Echoes, where you’ll learn the Source Vampirism skill. Upon leaving the Hall of Echoes, several Voidwoken appear and you’ll need to fight them to leave the area.
