Mind over Matter is a quest that takes place throughout Aleroth in Divinity II: Flames of Vengeance. Become the first draconic delivery boy in Rivellon history as you scurry your way through alleyways and taverns looking for rare items to fulfill hidden desires that you discover by mindreading NPCs. You start with a round paperweight and end up with a load of exp - simply by finding an object, bringing this object to another NPC, then repeating again and again, times seven.


The quest can be triggered mindreading any of 8 NPCs (see Quest NPCs). However, before you begin, you will need to loot a Bellegar Coin from a corpse in an alley on Lanilor Lane. Once you have the first item, you can begin exchanging items with each NPC until you have completed the quest. The NPCs must be visited in the order below and each NPC must be mindread before the quest item can be turned in.

Quest NPCsEdit




Messalina is the first NPC you will talk to on your way to completing your quest. She's looking for something forging a striking resemblance to Bellegar, but what could it be?

This Champion also offers the quest Old Dog or New Tricks?




Bernard is in charge, or at the very least he claims true leadership of the Aleroth Healers' Guild. The city's chief healer is the second stop on your paper route. Contrary to how its cover reads, the book Bernard is after (The Saucy Lass from Rivertown) can best be described as a classical guide to the finer points of social networking. Its best that we archive a copy for later reading.

Bernard also appears to have a penchant for the culinary. Perhaps its An Appetite For Murder.




So you found the skeleton in the closet. It turns out he lost his perfect sinews and is now no more than a collection of bones. Skeleton of former Bedwyr claims he was once a great enchanter. Unfortunately you can't put his claims to the test as his machines are now in disarray. With a few missing parts maybe you can help Bedwyr Fire'em Up!.

As much fun as it sounds watching machines go clink, you should probably barter for that new designer appendage the doctor's been asking for.

Dr. WestEdit

Dr West

Dr. West

Dr. West, a man who envisions what your head would look like on a Dragon Elf's body and also inspires to one day lead Aleroth. Let's hope his folly doesn't come to pass, but at least he not constantly shouting death.




Champion Casca needs a pacifier, but is instead getting a toy airship. You'd better see to it that this Champion never gets his hands on the real thing.




Champion Virginius will go where you need him. Poison gas, no problem. Flying fortresses, doesn't even see 'em. If you've got a dark forest that needs some scouting, all you need to do is point him in the right direction.




Aleroth has its share of great drinking establishments. At the Phoenix Inn you'll find your share of rowdy patrons and the occasional flower. Flora is missing some pricey neckwear that likely costs a year of Champion's salary. Perhaps you can help her out?




Valeri miraculously appears out of nowhere at the push of a button. Rumors have it he was locked inside a rune by an man with an insidious plan.

Push the buttons first or you will get the worst of fates: no quest reward. He is the last stop on your route and someone whom without you cannot complete your quest to mindread NPCs for a large sum of xp.
