Your friend Faren acts like a cad, but he rushed to see you after you were injured in the centaur attack. Like you, Faren resides in the Salma District, which has seen an increase in burglaries as of late.

— In-game description

Welcome Home is part of the personal story of human characters who chose the nobility background.


Welcome Home (Level 10)

Meet Faren in Divinity's Reach and find out why he insists on seeing you.

  • Talk to Lord Faren.
  • Enjoy the party. Talk to Faren afterward.
  • Defeat the bandits
  • Find and rescue Faren.


All professions


Watchman Rebec is your first objective and will introduce you to the heart system. Speak to him and then proceed to help villagers in the area to fill a heart. Once a heart has been filled, check the mail interface for your new message and then go back to the Salma District — your home instance — in Divinity's Reach.

Once there, go left from the entrance to reach your estate. Faren will greet you and you may enjoy the party for as long as you wish. Talking to Wozmack the Wonderful will also start a little magic show.

To trigger the next bit of plot, you must speak to Faren again and tell him you're done. That triggers a bandit attack, and you will have to kill them all. Since you are outnumbered, try to take the bandits separately as much as possible. After they're all dead, another cutscene starts, showing you the bandits have kidnapped Faren. Pursue them through town to the Widowmaker's Hideout, where you will fight a few waves of thugs, including a mini-boss.

Mail you receive after completing a renown heart:


Lord Faren

A Noble's Work Is Never Done

Greetings, old friend! As soon as you manage to drag your heroic behind out of that sick bed, your presence is requested, nay, DEMANDED back at your home in Divinity's Reach! And if you come home

—Lord Faren

At your home (non-cinematic):

Lord Faren: Over here!
Lord Faren waves at <Character Name>.

Talking to Lord Faren before the party:

Lord Faren: Ah, the hero of Shaemoor returns! Come and see how friends and neighbors alike have turned out to welcome you home!
<Character Name>: A party, Faren? For me? Or is it just an excuse to get your friends together and see what's in my wine cupboard?
Lord Faren: Nonsense! Heroes are always popular. These nice people simply insisted on congratulating you and celebrating your brave victory.
<Character Name>: And you insisted on breaking out my finest food and drink for the occasion.
Lord Faren: You deserve no less. Still, I can't take all the credit. Your household staff was most helpful, even eager, to facilitate the process.
Lord Faren: I wish my servants loved me half as much. But then, I am lovable in other ways. Ha ha.
<Character Name>: And the less said about that, the better. Now, wipe off that smirk, and let's go enjoy my best roast duck and brandy.

During the party (non-cinematic):

Wozmack the Wonderful: Ah! The guest of honor! Ladies and gentlemen I give to you the hero of Shaemoor! So, hero, are you ready to be amazed?
Lord Benjamin teases <Character Name>.
Lord Benjamin: It's the hero of Shaemoor! Come have a drink with us!
Wozmack the Wonderful: Come one, come all, and prepare to be amazed!

Talking to Lord Faren at the party:

Lord Faren: Do you enjoy the festivies, old friend?
Talk quest option tango.png
Yes, I think I'm done.
Lord Faren: I'm outgrowing this party myself. I'll tell the servants we're leaving.
Talk quest option tango.png
Sounds good. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
On second thought, I think I'll keep enjoying the party. Excuse me.

When the bandits appear (non-cinematic):

Lord Faren: Take your hands off me, you scum! Help! Murder! Mayhem!
Noble: (screaming)
Noble: (screaming)
Noble: Bandits!

After Lord Faren is kidnapped:

<Character Name>: I heard Faren shouting. Where is he?
Servant: I saw those ruffians dragging him down the street. They're going to kill him!
<Character Name>: Calm down. See to the other guests and make sure no one else has been harmed. I'll go after Lord Faren.

After the cutscene (non-cinematic):

Servant cheers for <Character Name>.
Servant cheers for <Character Name>.
Baron Edmonds: Don't worry, we'll take care of things here. Go after Faren!

After you rescue Lord Faren:

Lord Faren: Am I pleased to see you! Though if you wanted me to leave the party, a simple "Begone, freeloader!" would have sufficed.
<Character Name>: I'll make a note of that. Any idea who these hooligans were or what they wanted?
Lord Faren: Not really. I did hear them discussing a farmhouse in Shaemoor. They were going to lock me up there with the rest of the hostages.
<Character Name>: Then I have more work to do. I can't save you and leave the others to rot. Bad form, you know.
Lord Faren: Count me in. I may not be a centaur-killing berserker like you, but I can take care of myself. I'll meet you there.

If you talk to Lord Faren:

Lord Faren: Shaken, kicked a bit, and dragged, but still smiling. I never doubted you'd come and find me. Those bandits are a horror!
Talk more option tango.png
What did they want? Did they say anything to explain the attack?
Lord Faren: Bandits have been plaguing the countryside around Divinity's Reach for months, but I never expected such a brazen assault. They're getting more political--and more bloodthirsty.
Talk more option tango.png
The bandits have a political agenda?
Lord Faren: They're fighting against the queen. Well, the queen, civilization, authority, and spilled beer. Anything they don't like, they're rebelling against, and these days that covers quite a bit.
Talk more option tango.png
You said they're getting more bloodthirsty, too. How so?
Talk end option tango.png
These bandits need to be stopped before they cause any more trouble. I'll see to that.
Talk more option tango.png
Bloodthirsty? Have there been other attacks?
Lord Faren: The bandits used to attack only caravans far from the city. Then small hamlets and outlying houses. Recently they've started robbing villages like Shaemoor and Beetletun. Now they're in the city! It's awful.
Talk more option tango.png
And this is all because of politics?
Talk end option tango.png
I'll take care of the bandits, don't worry.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll take care of the bandits, don't worry.

My Story[edit]

Welcome Home.jpg

I was injured by flying debris when that earth elemental exploded. I awoke in the care of a priestess of Dwayna, who kindly let me know that my friend Faren had visited me. I need to see him, but the priestess asked that I return her favour by helping Shaemoor farmers first. They needed my help, but now I'm eager to get back home to the city.

I returned home to a celebration in my honor. Unfortunately, bandits crashed the party. They captured my friend Faren. I caught up and rescued Faren before they could take him out of the city. Faren said he heard the bandits talking about a hideout beneath an abandoned farm in Shaemoor.
