The Gate of the Vanquished: Walkthrough

The Gate of the Vanquished is to the west of Scalding Spear. You'll find Drakka and Yarra mid-argument, and will attempt to diffuse the situation. Unfortunately, you'll be forced to pick a side, and will fight alongside the ally you select. Once you've won the battle, the quest line will conclude.

Drakka or Yarra: Who Should You Pick Sides With?

You'll need to choose between Drakka or Yarra during The Gate of the Vanquished, and you'll fight alongside whoever you select. This will have an impact on the fate of the tribe. Think about which character you like or agree with more based upon what you've learned about the tribe so far. They both have valid opinions and views, so there's no right or wrong answer here. It's morally ambiguous by design. Whoever you pick will issue the Errand named Burden of Command later in the game.
